BEARACID’S TOP 10 FILMS OF 2008
It seemed as though you either loved this movie or you hated it. It got a great deal of bad reviews from the gamer types out there, but I, also a gamer, really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the acting, the storyline and pretty much every aspect of the movie.
9. THE STRANGERS
This movie scared the crap out of me, when it finally picked up. Even though it was slow at the beginning, I really felt it deserved to be in my top ten.
8. QUANTUM OF SOLACE
I’ve seen every Bond film ever made, and this was very different from those. It was nonstop action from beginning to end. I really enjoyed the fact that it picked up right where the last one left off. And aside from Sean Connery, because no one else is even close to that man, he is the best Bond.
I know this is a kids movie but I think I just enjoyed my wife’s reactions to this one. She made this movie for me and just fun hearing her laugh at every little thing. So I thought I would include it in my top ten of the year.
6. PINAPPLE EXPRESS
This movie was hilarious, I usually don’t write
about comedy but this one, I don’t know how to explain it, I just thought it was an awesome movie. I guess it is the ironic aspect, because these guys are not who you would expect to be carrying guns and getting revenge.
5. DEATH RACE
Well this one is sort of self explanatory. It has action, cars, women, racing, and explosions. It is a guy movie, even though I’m
sure there are many women who saw it and liked it.
4. IRON MAN
I know there will be a few disappointed people with my choice as this one being #4. Most feel that this is probably one of the top 2. Not for me and you will see why. It was an awesome movie with great effects, acting, action, storyline, and well everything an awesome movie has but I felt there were a few that were a wee-bit better.
If you saw this one, I shouldn’t have to explain to you why it made my top ten. It was the bloodiest Rambo yet. Forget the storyline,
forget the acting, this movie was all about the action and killing bad guys.
2. THE DARK KNIGHT
This was the best Batman movie to date. I don’t even know how to put it into words. The cast was phenomenal, not just the main
characters either, I am talking about the whole lot of them. The special effects were amazing. They did an outstanding job with “Two-face”. I never imagined it would be that good when I heard they were going to put him and “The Joker” in the same film. And who could forget the Heath Ledger as “the Joker”. His performance was just so amazing. He was so into his role that, I don’t think there is anyone who will come even close to playing as good joker as he did. And that is saying a lot considering that Jack Nicholson play the one in Batman in 1989.
Drum roll please…….
1. SPEED RACER
When I tell people that my favorite movie of the year was Speed Racer, most of them ask why. Well there are a huge number of
reasons and I’m not going to bore you with all of them. I enjoyed every aspect of this movie. From the bright flashy cinematics to the intensity of the final race. I have always loved racing and I grew up watching the Speed Racer cartoon. So naturally I was really excited about this movie and it did not disappoint me…
