Top 10 Best Movies Of 2008

10.  PINEAPPLE EXPRESS

While a lot of people thought it was funny, I think Pineapple Express doesn’t get enough praise for how funny it is. Seth Rogen and James Franco bring their A game. Best comedy of 2008.

9.  EAGLE EYE

A non stop thriller that is probably not on everyone’s top 10 list. It certainly isn’t good enough to compete with the rest of the pack, but it’s a great movie with tons of action and a great performance by Shia.

8.  IRON MAN

Awesome isn’t the word for it, but mind-blowing is. Action packed in some places, but could’ve used a lot more action than it had. When you leave the theater, you realize just how much Robert Downey Jr. was awesome, and all in all you end up loving it.

7.   SLUMDOG MILLIONARE

Critics and fans alike love this drama. While it has it’s intense moments, Slumdog fits number 7 perfectly.

6.   THE WRESTLER

A Pretty heavy drama which is getting all sorts of praise this Oscar season, and of course, every one is raving about Mickey Rourke’s preformance. It probabaly won’t get best picture, but Rourke might get a nomination.

5.  CHANGELING

A great film which Angelina Jolie is wonderful in.  One of the best dramas of the year, it is disturbing, wonderfully told and just makes you hate the enemy in this film. While the ending was kind of a let down, the rest was amazing.

4.  FROST / NIXON

The fourth best movie of the year here as Ron Howard’s new picture was amazing to me. It’s funny how the best films this year were mostly all dramas. And this was all drama, intense, and really put a good thought on Watergate.

3.  GRAN TORINO

A magnificent movie that I loved. It’s got some action, mostly all drama again, and just stunning. I never thought it would be this good! Eastwood did a great job with this, it is getting so much praise, and rightfully so.

2.  The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

This film is awe-inspiring. The way it was told, and everything about it was so freaking awesome. Brad Pitt was wonderful, and this film has almost every emoition in it. Despite running a bit too long, Benjamin Button is the second best of the year hands down.

1.   THE DARK KNIGHT

Easily the best film of the year, and the greatest performance the big screen has ever seen by Heath Ledger as the joker. Just such an amazing movie, everyone brought their A-game. The script was one of the best of the year, and the best batman movie ever made.

well, that was the best 2008 had to offer, let’s see what 2009 has in store……
