Iron Man was good but overall I am tired of superhero movies so my wife and I are boycotting them for a while.

I don't have a top 5 but maybe a top 3:

1) New Indiana Jones (some didn't like it but I thought it was as entertaining as ToD if not more so)
2) Iron Man was ok for a superhero flick
3) Dark Knight

1. Dark Knight (I saw it twice at the theater)
2. Iron Man
3. Hanc0ck
4. Wall-e
5. Hulk

Those are the ones I saw this past summer. I enjoyed all of them.

man, everyone loves those super hero movies. the ONLY reason Dark Knight was good was Heath Ledger. other than that, mediocre at best. it'd be better than the fist one IF the first one didn't have such crappy villains.

i like superhero movies too...just every year they get 6 or 7 ones and only 1 or 2 of those movies are atcually REALLY good. -- i prefer graphic novel adaptations. The Watchmen, Sin City, 300...etc, etc.

aside from that, my favorite superhero movie that sort of flies under the radar is Blade.

Dark Knight was way too overhyped because of Heath Ledgers death.It was ok but I think Iron Man was better.

Iron Man was good. but something tells me they'll have to come out guns blazin' to make a sequel REALLY work. Iron Man was good, but not great.

i feel like an idiot because i dogged The Dark Knight and it was my number one movie of the year. haha! but like i said, Benjamin Button is going to take that spot for sure. David Fincher is a movie god. =)

it's very rare 2 have 2 monster movies come out within months like iron man and dark knight did... we'll see how the next movies are gonna be like...

the only bad thing is that terrance howard will not be in the 2nd iron man instead it will be don cheadle :(

but we'll see

Time for some international flavour. These are taken from our 2008 list in Australia. (You may have seen some in late 2007.)

#1. The black balloon
#2 Iron Man
#3 Dark Knight
#4 Juno
#5 Kung Fu Panda

If you are ever going to see one Australian film in your life make it the black balloon. It won nearly every award at the Australian film industry awards last month. If you have ever had anything to do with a person with an intellectual disability then you must see this. This movie is stunning.


I am a father of two young kids and also a father of a child with an intellectual disability so I am very biased ( thus the 2 picks on my list that are not typical)

...and i was right. "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is definitely my favorite film of the year. =)

i knew it was going to happen. sorry Batman, Benjamin rules. =)

Tropic Thunder was hilarious. i hope Rober Downey, Jr gets SOME award for that move. he stole the show. haha!

i hate Ben Stiller. he can die of the flu for all i care. =)

jack black was AMAZING

iron man would be my pick for #1, but that's just of 2008.

i am a huge hulk fan as you can tell by my avatar, but that movie was a huge disappointment, IMO.

i found the dark knight to be boring.

kung fu panda was pretty good.

step brothers had its moments.

2008 was pretty much a flop for movies.

in 2009 we have the new harry potter movie and the wolverine movie. i think the wolverine movie is going to be corny.

... Walk Hard- The Dewey Cox Story immediately pop into mind.

i like the scene between dewey cox and elvis, played by white stripes', jack white.
