10 Good 2008 Movies

Monday, December 13 by Jennifer Wright

The year 2008 was a great year for these 10 good 2008 movies. Sometimes it is necessary to have a little refresher on what those good movies were though, so here is a compiled list of ten good 2008 movies.

  1. “Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.” The next adventure in the “Chronicles of Narnia,” Walt Disney Pictures brings us “Prince Caspian” which is definitely one of the good movies of 2008. “Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” takes us back to Narnia again. Only this time, the kings and queens of Narnia are surprised when the one year they were away turns out to be 1,300 years in Narnia.
  2. “The House Bunny.” Also one of the ten good movies from 2008 is “The House Bunny” starring Anna Faris. Shelly (Anna Faris) is a Playboy bunny who is tricked into leaving the Playboy mansion. She finds a home by becoming a house mother for a failing sorority. Shelly teaches the girls how to be sexy and confident, and she even learns a few things about herself along the way.
  3. “Made of Honor.” “Made of Honor” starring Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan, is a great romantic comedy. “Made of Honor” is the story of how a man is asked by his best friend, who he soon realizes that he loves, to be the maid of honor at her wedding.
  4. “The Dark Knight.” “The Dark Knight” starring Heath Ledger and Christian Bale is the sequel to “Batman Begins” and one of the really good 2008 movies. As in all the “Batman” movies, Batman battles the evil villains who try their hardest to take over Gotham City.
  5. “An American Carol.” “An American Carol,” starring Kevin Farley, Kelsey Grammer and Trace Adkins, is a parody of “A Christmas Carol.” In this adaptation, a grouchy filmmaker is visited by the three ghosts of Christmas who are determined to show him what Christmas is really about.
  6. “Mamma Mia.” Starring Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried, “Mamma Mia” is a musical and another good 2008 movie. Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) wants the father she has never met to give her away at her wedding. The problem is her mother has never told her who her father actually is. So she goes on a mission to find the father she has never known.
  7. “Baby Mama.” “Baby Mama” stars Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Kate Holbrook finally decides she wants a baby after years of putting it on hold for her career. She finds out she cannot conceive and hires a surrogate mother. The surrogate is more than a little different than Kate and she finds herself homeless. Kate takes her in and the two become closer than they ever would have thought possible. This was a good 2008 movie, as comedies go.
  8. “Horton Hears a Who.” “Horton Hears a Who” is an adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ children’s book and also one of the best children’s movies from 2008. “Horton Hears a Who” is the story of how an elephant hears a cry for help from a speck of dust and ends up trying his best to protect the tiny community of Whoville, even though everyone he knows thinks he’s nuts because of what he’s doing.
  9. “Ste Brothers.” “Step Brothers” stars Will Farrell and John C. Reilly together again in one of the funniest good movies from 2008. “Step Brothers” is about two grown men living at home. When their parents decide to get married, both men have to tolerate each other to please their parents. After lots of rivalry between them they become friends, but still have a lot of growing up to do throughout the movie.
  10. “The Duchess.” “The Duchess,” another good movie from 2008, stars Keira Knightley in the dramatic tale of a woman who marries the Duke of Devonshire. The Duchess is beloved by everyone around her, except for her own husband, the Duke. Eventually the lack of love and attention from her husband leads her into an affair.
