best movies of 2008

So it might be pretty easy to guess, but in case you wanted to know for sure, here are the 10 best movies of 2008.

This is the list based on critics' score

10. Shine A Light
9. Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father
8. Iron Man
7. The Wrestler
6. The Counterfeiters
5. Slumdog Millionaire
4. Milk
3. Man on Wire
2. Wall-E
1. The Dark Knight

[I don't know what 3/5 of those movies are. Hmm..]

The top movies based on money made are:

10. Sex And The City
9. Horton Hears a Who!
8. Quantum of Solace
7. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
6. Kung Fu Panda
5. Wall-E
4. Hancock
3. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
2. Iron Man
1. The Dark Knight

This list isn't surprising, really. Of course The Dark Knight is going to be #1 on almost any list of best movies for this year. It's kind of interesting that the kids movies are in order in this list, though. Coincidence?

And, I think comedies are really taking over Hollywood.. So, the top 10 funny movies are:

10. You Don't Mess With The Zohan
9. Burn After Reading
8. Kung Fu Panda
7. Step Brothers
6. Get Smart
5. Baby Mama
4. Beverly Hills Chihuahua
3. Pineapple Express
2. Tropical Thunder
1. Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Okay.. Maybe I don't have the same humor as the rest of America, but I think Step Brothers was a lot funnier than Sarah Marshall. And not that I saw the chihuahua movie, but it looked weird. So if anyone has seen it, correct me if I'm wrong when saying that shouldn't be #4.

I have a lot of catching up to do with movies, though. I think it was a pretty good year for movies.. And I'm very behind in finding out for sure.
