Turner Classic Movies has created a great montage of all the actors, actresses, writers, directors and etc. that passed away in 2008. A similar montage is always one of the best parts of the Oscars every year, but this one is better. It includes many more people than the Academy Award montage typically does.
Google has a great gadget that lets you watch the election results in real time. You can even embed it in your page, so here it is:
SlashFilm has posted a great article on 55 Must See Movies of 2008. There’s a lot of good films on there. So many and I know I’ll never watch half of them and likely only see half of that in the theaters. I do know I’ll see Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and The Dark Knight next year. With Carter, I’m sure Wall-E, Where the Wild Things Are and Horton Hears a Who will be sure bets. From what I hear, the Wachowski Brothers Speed Racer film will be G rated, so we’ll definitely be there for that one.
Fanboys, Be Kind Rewind, Fanboys, The Changeling, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button all sound interesting, but will probably have to wait for cable/DVD.
