Was 2008 a Good Year For Movies?

You've voted on the different categories of movies as we looked back at the best of 2008, but I'm curious to know whether you think the year in cinema was a good one overall.

Sure, some movies made a lot of money off of us this year (ahem, The Dark Knight), but when you look back on '08 in its entirety, do you think it delivered really great films?

Oh yeah, Zack and Miri Make a Porno was great too!

Some movies were very good...but I felt many movies this year were just "meh." They had a lot of potential, but were a bit disappointing because they were EXTREMELY overhyped (like Sex and the City, Indiana Jones, and even The Dark Knight - it just wasn't as good as I heard it was). Don't get me wrong, they were decent films and I enjoyed watching them but I wasn't blown away. But there were a lot of good films too - Iron Man, Wall-E, Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Prince Caspian (guilty pleasure), Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.

i'd say 2008 was a good year for movies, do box office numbers for the dark knight and iron man opening weekends not reflect that?! a good mix of blockbusters, indie flicks, comedies, etc. still catching up on a few movies prior to the oscars, but will say '08 was good for movies.

Milk made up for all of the okay movies that I saw earlier in the year. Mamma Mia was okay, SATC was cute, but Milk was phenomenal.

Definitely ! I saw 20 movies this year haha, it was the first year I actually started going to the movies more, now that I've discovered matinees.

I think the only flicks I actually saw were Iron Man, Tropic Thunder, and Zack and Miri Make a Porno, all of which I loved. Couldn't have cared less about the other stuff. I give the year a 4 out of 10.

I think the only movies I went to see in theater this year were Wall-E and Sex and the City. I adored Wall-E... too cute. And SATC was a perfect ending to it all for me. I meant to go see The Dark Knight, but never was able too. *sigh* Guess I'll catch that on DVD.

Eh, it was so-so for me...I loved Twilight and the Dark Knight. Sex and the City was cute. Other than that, I can't think of anything that I really went out of the way to see. I absolutely hated Tropic Thunder too, Krae85.

Milk, Wall-E, Dark Knight, and Iron Man--I'd say it was a good year for movies!

Iron Man, Indiana Jones, Dar Knight... made Christmas shopping for my husband easy! I don't understand the craze about Tropic Thunder, I watched it on dvd and thought it was crass, if not disgusting.

i think that overall it was a pretty good movie year. my man and i go to the movies just about every weekend and i can only think of a few that we didn't feel that we needed to go to see or were a waste of money.
