Concerning Movies (2008)

This post is dedicated to one of the anons who write in my chatbox. Ive decided to use the same categories as my 2007 recap. So lets see what won (OK - its no secret that I loved the Dark Knight and chances are - it would probably make a clean sweep of most of my categories - but ive conveniently left it out of Best sequel etc so that other movies can shine)

Best animated movie
Madagascar 2 - hands down. Kung Fu Panda wasnt too bad though.

I have to agree with the Worst Popcorn Category - Pavilion wins by a mile.

As for Pineapple Express, i have been waiting to watch it for the last 4 months. Its stored on my PC, but I haven't had the opportunity to watch it.

@ Pineapple Express
"Yep, this movie made me laugh so hard at one stage I inhaled a piece of popcorn."

India, basically known for its good culture and tradition. Every year thousands of visitors come to see this spiritual incredible land. But one thing in this from small to old every one is interested in cricket and hindi movies. I mean bollywood movies. Every year more than 4oo movies releases and its the highest amount as comparing other countries.top bollywood movies

I love 'spoof' movies, but they just should have stopped after the Naked Gun, Scary Movie and the ones with Charlie Sheen (can't get to the name now) series. 'Date Movie', 'Disaster Movie' & 'Superhero Movie' were all crappy.

Can you believe it...I still have not watched The Dark Knight?! I think I'm too sad coz Heath Ledger is not around anymore :-(

I agree with some, but you've omitted Hancock and iron man, and I think Hulk was good too.

I think worst movie was that Scar 3d, there was nothing redeemable. At least superhero was free.

Yess the dark knight was the best ever. It joined V for vendetta and the matrix in my 1st place for fav movies.
But I thought the incredibles was really good, can't believe people didn't like it.. just thought the ending was a bit sucky. And to me, Forgetting Sarah Marshall was over-rated, maybe i'm getting old:D ooo and i agree Prince Caspian was a great sequel, the first movie was boring in my opinion.

Americanising Seher - You should catch it - except im not sure how it would translate on the small screen though :0 the songs are so lovely :) one of them - jashn bahara makes me smile :)

Jeremy - You need to watch that movie bro! Anyway - e-mail me details on the lions - i'l post it up :)

Goth Girl - Its awesome hey! I wanna watch it again right now

NRI - Fuck off spammer. Im too lazy to delete your comment

CQ - th ebest spoof movie is still Robin Hood Men in Tights. I loved the hot shots movies :)

Waseem - the friday that we watched scar was like one of the worst days of last year so i didnt remember that movie at all. Hancock was my number 11. Spiderwick was number 12.

BlackOlives - the firts Narnia sucked :D
