I think the best movie I saw in 2008 was The Bank Job.

And as guilty pleasures, I'd have to say Doomsday and Death Race.

As per usual,I didn't see one of these films. I KNOW Tim Mosley probably has "Milk" on DVD,VHS,8 Track and other media already or is pressing the producer for a followup.

Thanks for the list Stosh. I always trust your judgment on films and will check 'em out. Being that I am too cheap to take Nina to the movies,I will rent the discs.

The Bank Job was good but kind of fell apart at the end, I thought.

Try Netflix How- it is awesome

I enjoyed "The Bank Job" but enjoy all of Jason "Straffffffom's" work.

I also loved Kung Fu Panda, Forbidden Kingdom, Rambo, Dark Knight, Iron Man, The Hulk, Cloverfield, Indiana Jones, Star Wars Clone Wars, Hancock, Hellboy 2, Space Monkeys.

Iron Man, Hellboy 2 and Dark Knight are definetly on my list! I also loved most of Indie 4, but the end wrecked it for me. Not the end end, the bit before the end, if you get me...

All the mad aliens and stuff spinning around reminded me of the end of The Mummy Returns.

Jon,

Iron Man ranked as the #1 film on AOL's year end list. Dark Knight was #3.

My #1 film, WALL-E, ranked #7.

Hellboy 2 was unranked
