Favorite Movie of 2008

In lieu of SS's Fav songs of 2008 thread, I figured I'd start one dedicated to movies. I think it was a pretty good year overall.

My top 3 I can think of right now is (in random order):

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Twilight
The Dark Knight

Gran Torino, Happy Go Lucky, Chop Shop, and DK are a few that come to mind.

Re: Favorite Movie of 2008

Iron Man, I loved the way that Robert Downy Jr. played Tony Stark. Tony Stark is a character that I could associate with if I were rich, playboy, superhero with a power core buried in my chest. Seriously though, I loved the characters attitude, demeanor, and mannerisms.

While Dark Night was great, I feel that too many people give it too much credit because of Ledger's performance and the fact that he died shortly afterward. I am not trying to take anything away from the Dark Night or Heath Ledger it was number 2 on my list.

Ultimately, while neither film comes remotely close to reality, I had an easier time believing the story line behind Iron Man than the one in the Dark Night. On one hand you have a weapons Engineer that creates a kick ass robotic suit versus a billionaire that dresses up like a bat and hunts down a criminal that performs crimes right out in the open and doesn’t get caught.

Just my opinion.

1 Dark Knight hands down. iwon'0t get into why is thebest but it has so much depth and value behing the main story (and no I'm not talking about heath).

2.- Iron Man great movie

3.- Burn after Reading funny dark comedy

4.- Body of lies

I have to say the surprise movie of the year for me was Step Brothers.

yeah,it was pretty funny,Iron Man was good too,Ive never thought Paltrow was that good looking but she looked good in that movie.Burn after reading would have been better if they made it funnier instead of so ironic

Re: Favorite Movie of 2008

Stand out blockbuster: Dark Knight. A movie full of great actors - Morgan Freeman, Gary Oleman (sp), Batman's butler dude Alfred - and Ledger just put all of them under his shadow. It was actually pretty mesmerizing and that's coming from a guy who couldn't ever remember Heath Ledger's name/face prior to this movie.

Sleeper of the year: Ghost Town. Saw it cause i'm a Ricky Gervais fan (oh yeah and I worship Karl Pilkington) and walked away thinking it was one of the best movie's of the year. Tia Leoni (sp) is excellent as is Greg Kinear.
