Fireproof

This film was not the best done, or the most moving. Several films not on this list were better films. (The Spider Man films, Inglorious B——-s, Juno, Iron Man and even  Twilight, were all better films.) Still, a church got together and made a good film with a great message, and I think that should be applauded.

Top Picks from the 2008 Pile

December 31, 2008

Looking at all the issues – Film Making – Acting – Message – Etc. These are my 08 picks for best films of 2008

(Check back, reviews are on the way for all of these films.)

  1. C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian 
  2. Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed
  3. Cult of Sincerity 
  4. The Day The Earth Stood Still
  5. Fireproof 
  6. Twilight *
  7. Iron Man *
  8. The Picture of Dorian Gray 

Most of these movies were fun and entertaining with good messages. The only one here to make my list of Must See Movie Recommendations was The Picture of Dorian Gray and that movie was released in 1945 but was finally released on DVD in 2008. Since the pickings are so shallow this year, and this movie is so good, I’m deciding that the DVD release makes it eligible if only to raise the quality of this list! (I did have Kit Kittredge: An American Girl  in at one point, but I nixed it to make room for Fireproof.)

* Twilight and Iron Man are movies I like now but am fearful that the sequels will make me regret putting them on this list.

Give us YOUR PICKS in the COMENETS!
