The Year In Movies

01.02.2009
Another year of cinema has come and gone, and what better way to commemorate it, than with a video montage. While watching this, I quickly became nostalgic for the year that was, and remembered all those quiet moments spent in the theatre, when the lights first dim and the crowd falls silent. I was reminded of the urgent anticipation I felt moments before films like THE DARK KNIGHT, and THE WRESTLER among others. This was indeed, a great year for movies--don't let those clips of SEVEN POUNDS convince you otherwise.

TDK and Wall-E really stick out when I think of 2008 but I have yet to see Slumdog Millionaire, The Wrestler, and Benjamin Button

It was also a very good year for comedies:
Tropic Thunder
Pineapple Express
Step Brothers
Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Bro, you pretty much hit it on the head. SLUMDOG and B.BUTTON were really well made and I also really dug THE WACKNESS, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN,TROPIC THUNDER and yes, CLOVERFIELD. All in all I'd say it was a damn good year for film, 2009 has some real competition!

I'm a huge sucker for litsts, and like Mark_Rumsfield I've been trying to keep a running tally of my favorite films throughout the year. However, I've found myself in a virtual tie this year among my top three, which are:

The Dark Knight, In Bruges and Wall-E.

If I *had* to pick one I'd go with In Bruges, I'm not saying that it's the best movie of the year, or even that I *think* it's the best of the year, simply that it's my favorite, and is perfectly suited for my tastes like few movies

Benjamin Button, Frost Nixon, Iron Man, Slumdog Millionaire, Valkyrie, and many others were all wondeful, but to me they just didn't quite have the impact that those three had.

man, Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros gets used a lot. Children of Men trailer, Slumdog Millionare trailer and now this.

as for me i didn't get a chance to see a lot of the good films shown in that clip.
but my choices are Role Models, Pineapple Express, and of course the Dark Knight.

Awesome montage.
Favourite film 2008? I don't really know.
Haven't seen Australia and Wrestler yet. Probably those ones.
Walle-E and TDK were both great, but overrated as hell.

Was I the only one who thought that montage was shit? The music was irrelevant and didn't relate to the images 90% of the time, the aspect ratio was off and it seemed to me like the editor had only seen The Dark Knight, Wall:e and Australia this year. What a shit job.

An absolutely amazing vid compilation and a good way to look back on 2008, I think (even if I still have yet to see half the Oscar contenders in the vid).

My Favourite 2008 films:
-The Dark Knight
-Street Kings
-In Bruges
-RockNRolla
-The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
-Iron Man

I've actually been keeping track of my favorite films of 2008 so I'll cut and paste it for you. There are still a few movies I haven't seen that will probably make my list, like Rachel Getting Married.

1) Smart People- Third year in a row an Ellen Page movie has been my favorite movie of the year. She's a phenomenal actress and picks excellent movies to be in.

2) My Sassy Girl- A fantastic Elisha Cuthbert movie that went under the radar. She's excellent in this, a great role for
I've actually been keeping track of my favorite films of 2008 so I'll cut and paste it for you. There are still a few movies I haven't seen that will probably make my list, like Rachel Getting Married.

1) Smart People- Third year in a row an Ellen Page movie has been my favorite movie of the year. She's a phenomenal actress and picks excellent movies to be in.

2) My Sassy Girl- A fantastic Elisha Cuthbert movie that went under the radar. She's excellent in this, a great role for her.

3) Wanted- I'm a fan of this director since I liked Night Watch and Day Watch. James McAvoy's performance was one of my favorites this year.

4) Pineapple Express- Excellent James Franco performance. An extremely fun movie.

5) Priceless- Hilarious and charming Audrey Tautou comedy.

6) 10,000 BC- I thought it was a very entertaining fantasy movie. I'm a huge Camilla Belle fan and I enjoyed watching her in this. I don't appreciate it when people who don't like this movie talk about it being bad as if it's a fact and there were actually critics like Roeper who insulted the fans of this movie. That's pretty childish and immature, and I refuse to be told what I should like or not like. Don't insult me just because I don't jump on the bandwagon, I'm sorry, but I like to think for myself.

7) The Wrestler- Mickey Rourke was outstanding in this. Aronofsky continues to impress me, I loved The Fountain too.

8) Zack and Miri Make a Porno- Really liked the characters and thought it was a very funny movie.

9) Son of Rambow

10) Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

11) Young@Heart

12) Cloverfield

13) The Duchess- One of Keira Knightley's best performances

14) Iron Man

15) The Tracey Fragments- Another phenomenal Ellen Page performance

16) Changeling

17) Frost/Nixon

18) The Bandís Visit

19) Sleepwalking

20) Kung Fu Panda

21) Encounters at the End of the World

22) Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson
