2008 Box Office Hits

By goodall hiroko

I have made a short list of movie hits for 2008. These are some of the motion pictures I enjoyed watching this year. I'm sure that you can find a picture or two that you will enjoy.

THE DARK KNIGHT: This time Batman, along with Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, are on a mission to clean up Gotham City. Crime is now down, until a new criminal mastermind shows up, and things get a lot worse. Now, Batman really has his hands full, as criminal mastermind, the Joker, has released his criminal insanity on Gotham City.

STEP BROTHERS: When two child like older men, who both live at home with one parent, are now going to share a room because their parents marry, big problems loom. Put Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as the key players, and the table is set for lots of laughs. This seems like a must see for a good time this year.

HAMLET 2: Dana Marshz, formerly a small time actor, has found himself teaching the high school theater classes to uninterested students. When the high school loses a major building, the administration decides the acting classes will have to go. With a challenge now in front of him, he plans to keep the school from dropping his classes by producing Hamlet 2, a sequel to the original work, which he writes himself.

WANTED: A young, bored, office worker named Wesley discovers that the father he never knew, is an assasin. When his father is killed, Wesley is basically forced into the organization that his father was a part of. He now will become the professional killer that that he was destined to become. After that, everything becomes complicated, and many twist and turns follow. Enjoy the ride.

BOLT: Bolt: This movie is a movie for the whole family. Bolt is a dog actor, who in his role on television, is a super hero dog. The thing about Bolt is that he is convinced he has these powers. After he is unexpectedly put into a real life situation, he realizes that he is only a normal dog. On a journey to get back home, he is aided by Mittens, the cat, and Rhino, the hampster.

MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 AFRICA: This is obviously the next edition to the animated smash hit Madagascar. Our four animal stars want to return to New York's famous Central Park Zoo, which is home for them all. Instead, with the Penguins leading them astray, they are heading off to their true homeland, Africa.

GET SMART: Maxwell Smart (agent 86) is here again, can you believe it? Would you believe... ? KAOS vs CONTROL, gadgets galore, and all the classic quotes. It is is a fun look back at the 1960's spy spoof series.

10,000 B.C.: This movie takes us back to prehistoric times. When rival hunters storm the Yaghai people, they capture, among others, Evolet. A strong young hunter, D'Leh, who is in love with her, organizes a band of hunters to chase down these warmongers, and save her, and the rest of the captured tribe members.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS: It was a wild night in Las Vegas. Young partiers Joy and Jack wake up and soon realize that they had married each other the night before. When they win a $3 million jackpot, each thinks they deserve the prize, so they ask a judge for a decision. The strange ruling is that for the next few months they must stay together, and try to make their marriage work. With lots of money at stake, they conspire to make each other quit the marriage, as they are both determined to get the money for themselves.

Most people buy or rent films when the come out on DVD, and watch them at home. A more recent method for getting films is by using down loading technologies from online sources. There are websites that will download tons of different movies. - 16651
