BadAdam's Movies of the Year

In light of the Academy Awards this weekend, here are MY top 10 Films that I saw that came out in 2008.

1. Milk
2. Slumdog Millionaire
3. Frost/Nixon
4. Wrestler
5. the Wackness
6. Dark Knight
7. Iron Man
8. Burn After Reading
9. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
10. Zach and Miri Make a Porno

The list of the other films that came out in 2008 that I saw, for better or worse, in no particular order: In Bruges, WALL-E, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Get Smart, Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, Hell Boy 2: the Golden Army, Kung Fu Panda, Hancock, Wanted, You Don't Mess with the Zohan, Sex and the City: the Movie, Tropic Thunder, 21, Choke, Cloverfield.

There's a lot of other films I've seen over the past year that came out before 2008... I like seeing older films. You can see a recent running list on one of my other blogs: iReview.

I am surprised that Zach and Miri beat both WALL-E and Tropic Thunder. I'm a huge Kevin Smith fan and I laughed a ton, but thought it was really lacking in connective tissue from scene to scene as far as being a truly good film.

In no way attacking your choices, that just interested me - it's rare someone likes a Kevin Smith project more than me these days.

I've never seen Zach and Miri, but I want to. I have seen WALL-E, though, and I am surprised by that. Tropic Thunder, less surprised. I think they could have done a lot more with it.

I dunno - Doney Jr. and tom Cruise were both INCREDIBLE.

PS - potential Iron Man 2 cast - Downey Jr. as Stark
Don Cheadle as Rhodey
Mickey Rourke as Crimson Dynamo
Scarlett Johansen as Black Widow

and if they work out $$$ issues
Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury

I mean - wow.
