The movie season that many thought would belong to Indiana Jones was instead dominated by a caped crusader and a crazy clown. Moviegoers everywhere should be thankful for "The Dark Knight," because the last four months would have been pretty grim without it. It must have been the worst summer in a long time at the theater; I barely saw any of the releases, including some I couldn't imagine not seeing ("The Mummy 3" and "Step Brothers" come to mind).
But there were some notable releases, both for their quality and otherwise. Which leads me to The Widescreen 2008 Summer Movie Awards, with your host, uh ... me.
