2008 Progress Report, Part 2

The next list contains the films that were above the level of "Yeah, it was fine," but not on the level of shorts-creaming. And as for Mother of Tears, I didn't feel comfortable putting it in either the best or worst category, so she's only there by default. Oh, and please excuse the horrible cropping... I was just lazy. I'll post the other 2 lists later on.
