Box Office Hits To Download From The Web

By Brian Hines

I have made a sampling of the movies released this year (2008). I have chosen a few of the motion pictures that I think you might like. I'm sure that you can find a picture or two that you will enjoy.

PINEAPPLE EXPRESS: Heavy pot smoker Dale Denton has just witnessed a bad cop, and a big time dealer, murder someone. The killers know he has seen the killing. Sure that he has been spotted, he drops his joint of pineapple express, and gets away fast. The marijuana is particular enough, that it is possible to find out who has it. The "fun" is on, as Dale and his dealer Saul are on the run.

HAMLET 2: Dana Marshz, formerly a small time actor, now finds himself teaching theater classes at the high school to uninterested students. The school loses a building due to destruction, so the school board figures the acting classes will have to go. Now fully motivated, he is on a mission to save the program by producing Hamlet 2, an original interpretation of the Shakespeare classic, which he creates.

BOLT: Bolt is a fun animation. Bolt is a dog actor, whom in his TV show, has superpowers. His problem is that he is convinced he has these powers. After he is unexpectedly put into a real life situation, he discovers that he is only a normal dog. On a journey to get back home, he is helped by Rhino and Mittens, his newly found hamster and cat friends.

JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH: On a quest to find his missing brother, a science professor travels to Iceland, and that sends him into the depths of our planet. This is a remake of the 1959 film that was created from the classic novel by highly acclaimed author Jules Verne. This film stars Brendan Fraser and Josh Hutchinson.

Jumper: Nearing death by drowning, David Rice (Hayden Christensen) learns something incredible. He can actually teleport himself to anywhere he desires to be, anytime he wants. Later, he becomes aware that he is not the only one that has this capability. After he becomes used to jumping around the world, he finds out that there are those that think jumpers are a threat, and need to be eliminated. He must fight for his life, as the hunters try to track him down.

GET SMART: Agent 86, aka Maxwell Smart is back, and he has us right where he wants us. The classic James Bond spy spoof, gadgets galore, and all the great one liners. It is is a fun look back at this classic spy spoof TV series.

ROLE MODELS: Danny and Wheeler, a couple of energy drink promoters, might be seeing some hard jail time because they binged, and trashed the company truck. The way they can avoid jail time is to work in community service for 150 hours. They are assigned to work as mentors with difficult children in a big brother type situation. This is a good situation for some super good laughs.

WALL-E: This film is an animated, comedy, adventure, sci-fi. Earth has been left behind, an uninhabitable wasteland. Waste removal robot, Wall-E, has been left to clean up the mess. When a recon bot (Eve) appears, checking for any signs of life, Walle-E has a friend. When the spaceship returns for Eve, Wall-E stows away, and thus starts the adventure of his robot life.

TROPIC THUNDER: With an abundance of acting talent we soon see this movie is a classic spoof. To get a realistic performance from his spoiled actors to see the movie be a success, the now venturesome director into the wild, and leaves them there by themselves. The object is to frighten them into making a war movie monster, that will be recorded on hidden cameras. When the director steps on an old land mine and dies, the actors are now truly on their own, and they are convinced everything is just an act, when things start to get very real. Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., and Tom Cruise star.

Most people buy or rent these movies, and views them on their home entertainment system. A new way people are acquiring movies is through downloads from the internet. There are websites that will download tons of different movies. - 16651
