Movies in 2008

Top 10 films to watch

10. The spiderwick chronicles: almost as good as the harry potter movies. some scene were quite scary( was stunned that they put them in a kid’s movie) but it shows how dangerous the creature were, check out the movie to see what i’m talking about.

9.    Baby mama: it was good( not as good as mean girls). It’s worth checking out.

8.   The incredible Hulk : this movie surprised me. I expected it to suck even more than the first but it didn’t. I especially like the ending, i really hope that they would do the cross-over movie really soon.

7.  Quantum of Solace: I know this might surprise some readers but i like this one better than the first one. Maybe it’s because of the action scenes or the desert breeze( just kidding, i  wanted to rhyme) but on a serious note, i truly enjoyed this one.

6.  Yes Man:-  Jim Carrey’s comeback movie.  Zooey Deschanel is an actress to look out for, she was really great and  funny(especially when she sang, you have to see the movie to understand what i mean.) TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRv4CoXQoAQ.  The movie is way funnier than what the trailer shows. It’s as if they hid the best scenes of the movie (which is smart on their part).  UPDATE: Zooey Deschanel at Jimmy Kimmel Live/ clip of the movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AF22ox_rs_U&feature=related

5. Tropic Thunder:-  my favorite scene was when that kid scream something at ben stiller and then he paused and spoke, “was there some kind of change in the script.” and the kid slapped him on the face.  I thought the mentally challenge jokes went too far but overall the movie was quite funny.

4. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa:- funnier than part one. It looked amazing on IMAX.

3. City of ember:- alot of people probably haven’t seen this movie because it came and went out of the theater which is truly sad.  This movie was great in so many levels. It’s based on a novel. Hopefully it would become a cult classic.  TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvtoeBt7xNA&feature=related

2. The family that preys:- funny, funny, funny with a mixture of drama. A lesson or two to be learned after watching the movie as tyler perry movies usually does that.  Sanna Lathan and Robin Givens stood out(according to me) in their performance. TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGrez5Kuxfo

1. The dark knight:- Do i really have to say why? You probably have already seen it and agree with me.

Films that weren’t Good

5. The happening: i wish this was his comeback movie but it isn’t. the film lacked tension, barely any frights, and the ending was…….terrible. I wouldn’t say you should avoid it, just don’t buy it. Rent it or borrow it at the library or somewhere.

4. The X-files: i want to believe: avoid this movie all together. The movie was just like another episode of X-Files on television( i’m not kidding). I don’t understand why they waited so long to make a movie this horrible. Don’t even rent it, only trust what i’m saying.

3.  The strangers: It tried to be something that it just wasn’t. It claimed to be based on a true story( i, personally, don’t believe them). You could wait for this one to be on TNT or HBO or whereever. And one thing that  i really dislike about this movie was that the characters acted stupid and it got worse and worse.

2.  Saw V: my goodness when would this series end? i really thought that they had something clever this time but i got fooled. By the end of the movie, you really don’t care what happened to anyone.  bunch of nothing happened in this movie.  you could watch it if you like but i’ve warned you.

1. Seven pounds:- i usually like will smith movies but this one was bad in so many level. I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t watch it but i would say that this movie send a very bad message. It’s depressing, it’s tedious and the mystery was so lame. A person in the theater said, “this is stupid.” after will smith character gave his reason for what he did( i can’t say what it is). This movie reminisced the same feeling i felt after watching “the hulk”. it’s a movie that you can’t watch twice. one is one too many.  Don’t get your hope high for this movie or it’ll disappoint you.

Movies( not necessary made in 2008) that would haunt  you for days. for more detail, check them on a search engine or look at the trailers.

1. Funny games: makes you be aware of strangers. TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ec-70W_K77U

2. Rabbit-proof fence: based on a true story. three young girls walked across the australia desert(1500 miles)  to get home and away from the people that took them. TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jM1jRwG2SDg

3.  The host: a south korean movie that deals with a monster. it’s being called the Asian jaws or jurassic park. The movie has english subtitle, i don’t remember if it was also dubbed. TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfNg_BveIks
