    Default 2008 vs 2009

    So, arguably, the biggest film of 2008 is out and stomping the shit out of Spideman 3 (yay!!!). But seven previews before that it kinda crossed my mind that maybe 2009 might hold some bigger surprises. Lets look back (and forward) and think about whether 2009 could possibly top 2008, especially considering Marvel and DC don't have anything planned for 2009, can the other studios make it worth our while?

    2008
    The Dark Knight
    Iron Man
    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
    WALL-E
    Sex and the City
    Forgetting Sarah Marshall
    Cloverfield
    HellBoy 2: The Golden Army
    The Incredible Hulk
    Wanted
    Hancock
    The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
    Speed Racer
    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
    Quantum of Solace
    Tropic Thunder
    Blindness
    Pineapple Express
    Burn After Reading
    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
    Eagle Eye
    X-Files
    Vicky Christina Barcelona

    Italics = Unreleased


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Man, 2009 looks like they have absolutely no idea what to do (not as if they have great ideas now), and just decided to make more cartoons, games and old tv series into movies.

    2008
    The Dark Knight --> ...Does this equal automatic win?
    Iron Man --> Epic
    WALL-E --> Epic
    Sex and the City --> Best movie spinoff ever.
    HellBoy 2: The Golden Army --> Could've been better.
    The Incredible Hulk --> Failed.
    Wanted --> Not bad.
    Speed Racer --> <3<3<3
    Tropic Thunder --> Looks cool

    VS

    2009
    Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen --> Michael Bay better not be directing this.
    Star Trek --> ???
    Astro Boy --> WHY?
    Austin Powers 4 --> WHY? AGAIN?
    Watchmen --> Okay, this looks cool.
    He-Man and the Masters of the Universe --> wtf lol
    Gears of War --> Wait, I thought this was a war game?
    Metal Gear Solid --> 2009: Year of the Game Movies. Where's Halo?
    ThunderCats --> Also year of the 90s Cartoon Remakes
    Dragonball --> NO

    Okay... 2008 wins. There are a ton of movies I'd go and see in 2009, but this year has been pretty impressive. Somehow, I doubt a bunch of remakes of favourite childhood cartoons and badass video games is going to top Iron Man, Dark Knight, and the most original thing we'll be seeing for a long time: Wall-E. Then again, maybe they will - but there's always Wall-E, the best movie of the year (that I've seen).

    Comic biz has been making super hero movies for a while now and since Spider-Man, X-men was a huge success everyone followed in making more. Comic companies need more money, they've been raising prices constantly but loosing lots of fans. Video game companies see the success that comic book movies have made and want a piece of that. No surprise really since some have been in the making for years now.

    I don't see how I'd be able to compare the two just yet since 09 hasn't even started. I'll wait til 09 ends until I can actually decide.

    Edit-
    Pretty sure there's more movies than that which will be out in 09.

    Sorry, you have it the other way around. Video games, make more money than video game movies. The Movie Studios want to cash in, on the money video games make.

    Your 2009 list looks weak. The only thing interesting on that list is the sequel to Transformers. The rest, I could care less about.

    Sorry,but still. It's the movie studios that want to make video game money. I think GTA beat the Spider-Man 3 in gross.

    The idea was to add to the list. =\
