Oh and one "sleeper" if you can find it: "Kung-Fu Hustle", this under-appreciated gem is IMHO one of the best comedies ever made.

Think "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", meets classic mythical tale, meets Looney Tunes at it's best. Of particular note is the cinematography and the choreography which are both the equal of any film made in the last ten years.

Kung-Fu Hustle is at least a few years old, (2004?), so are we talking films that've been released in the last year, or just those we've seen in the past 12 months?

I'd agree with Wall-E, though wouldn't recommend Kung Fu Panda, (but I did enjoy watching it).

In my opinion 'Slumdog Millionaire' for the original plot and reality. :)

The two from 2008 that I saw and thought were notable were:

"007 Quantum of Solace"
-- as far as James Bond films go, I prefer Sean Connery; I I thought this was a good action flick.
"Hancock"
-- Will Smith always entertains. An interesting approach to a super hero movie.

If you are looking for some suggestions that are prior to 2008:

"Big Fish"
-- This is one of my all-time favorites.
"Hero"
-- This too is one of my all-time favorites.

If you are looking from some good classic movies you can't go wrong with an Alfred Hitchcock film or a Humphrey Bogart/Lauren Bacall flick.

My wife and I have a subscription card at the cinema - we pay a monthly fee and can go as often as we like to just about any branch for no extra cost. My wife went 87 times last year, I went 81. So we should be able to recommend a few...So many to choose from...and my mind goes blank.

Wanted was good - but then so is just about every James McAvoy film.
My wife really enjoyed Australia - mainly because of Hugh Jackman.

Some films we enjoyed last year:
In bruges
Juno
21
Taken
Batman
Hancock

Some films that weren't so good:
St trinians (20)
My best friends girlfriend (15)
What just happened (45)
House bunny (10)
Angus thongs etc (20)
Speed racer (30)
City of ember
4 christmases

The numbers in brackets are the approximate number of minutes we stayed watching the film before leaving. This year we left 'The Spirit' after about 10 minutes.

That's just off the top of my head - the list is at home.


There is no problem so great that it can not be solved by caffeine and chocolate.

I definitely agree with Juno, In Bruges and Burn after reading. The Dark Knight wasn't very special to me, but I seem to be one of the few. I have Slumdog Millionaire at home, but have to see it yet. The curious case of Benjamin Button just went into the cinema's over here, I heard that's gonna be a hit this year.

Some of my all time favourites are Happiness, Requiem of a dream, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, Fargo and Big fish.
