Box Office Movie Downloads

By Firan Hungey

This is a small selection of movie hits for 2008. I have chosen a few of the movies I found entertaining in this years crop. Hopefully you will see some films here that are good viewing.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS: Wild and crazy nights in Las Vegas are normal. Young partiers Joy and Jack get up the next day and find out that they are married. When they win a $3 million jackpot, the question is who should get the money, so they try to settle it in court. The strange ruling is that they must stay together for six months, and see if they can settle their differences. With an eye on the jackpot, they each try to get the other to give up, as both desire to wind up with all the money.

10,000 B.C.: This film will take you back almost 12,000 years. When mysterious warlords from another tribe invade the Yaghai tribe, they ride off with some of the people, including the lovely Evolet. D'Leh, a young hunter who loves Evolet, leads a group of hunters to pursue the warlords, and save her, and the rest of the captured tribe members.

TWENTY ONE: Twenty One basically recounts an amazing true story about M.I.T. students who created a team of blackjack players that beat the casinos. These college kids prepared and then enacted an assault on the casinos. To beat the games in Vegas, where card counting can get you banned, they had to change casinos often, and disguise themselves, so they wouldn't get caught. Twenty One is based on the book that explains how these kids made millions playing blackjack.

JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH: On a quest to find his brother, science professor Trevor Anderson travels to Iceland, and that leads him to the center of the earth. This is a new version of the 1959 film, which was about the science fiction book by highly acclaimed author Jules Verne. Cast includes Brendan Fraser, Josh Hutchinson, Anita Briem, and Seth Myers.

WANTED: Wesley, an office worker going nowhere in life, learns that his father, who he never really knew, is a contract killer. His father has been murdered, now Wesley is asked to join into the organization that his dad was a member of. He is transformed from a nobody office worker into the assassin that that he was destined to become. From that point on, this movie gets extremely complicated. Enjoy this roller coaster ride.

STEP BROTHERS: When two child-like older men, who each live with their single parents, will now have to share a room because their parents have wed, you can only imagine the mess. Having the combination of Reilly and Ferrell in those roles, and this has the makings for lots of laughs. This movie is a sure fire bet for a good time this year.

MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 AFRICA: This is obviously the next edition to the big hit film Madagascar. The small group of animals desire to return to New York's famous Central Park Zoo, and go back to the lives they know. As opposed to going home, due to the Penguins, they are heading off to have more adventures first.

THE INCREDIBLE HULK: This movie tells the story of Dr. Bruce Banner, who has become the green Hulk. This film is about the marvel comic character the green Hulk. Key cast members are Edward Norton, Tim Roth and Liv Tyler. Louis Leterrier directs this film. The film genre is science fiction.

BOLT: Bolt is a fun animation. The star is dog actor Bolt, who plays the role of a dog that has super hero dog powers. The thing about Bolt is that he honestly believes he is this super hero dog with superpowers. When, by chance, he is put into a real life situation, he discovers that he is only a normal dog. On a journey to get back home, he finds help, in the form of a cat named Mittens, and an overweight hamster named Rhino.

Many people will buy 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 the internet. There are websites that with a membership, you can download almost any film you can think of. - 16651
