2008 was just people telling me how Wall-E is great and how I should see it before I die, and that Heath Ledger was the shit and did the best role ever played as the joker, which made batman the film of the year etc. Oh, also we had Indy 4, yaaay !! Oh, and btw, we’ve also seen Bienvenue chez les ch’tis becoming the best french movie ever made…errrrr
Seriously, I agree on that great films were released in 2008, but I got really annoyed by the general opinion this year, everybody who was not crazy about cinema kept talking about the same movies.
This year I really got the impression that no matter how shitty a movie is, it still can hit the box office thanks to marketing, that sucks.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that all this marketing bullcrap was new in 2008, it’s just that I became a lot more aware about it this year.
