My picks for the Best Movies of 2008! Rather than do a simple list, I've done a drawing instead. Footage was filmed by me and my brother while the drawing was being made, and here you have the edited result.
The drawing was done in ballpoint pen, filmed with the webcam on my HP laptop and the camera on my Nokia N82 cellphone. Edited in Windows Movie Maker. Music used is the song "Discipline" by Nine Inch Nails, from the album "The Slip" (which was also a notable 2008 release -- the album was released for free).
These are the movies represented here:
- The Dark Knight - Iron Man - Kung Fu Panda - Wanted - Slumdog Millionaire - Rock On!! - Wall-E - Hellboy II: The Golden Army - A Wednesday - The Midnight Meat Train - Saw V - Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay - Dasavathaaram
The last few movies may not match up to the quality of the others, but I have included them because they were notable in their respective genres. Also, this is my opinion only, and the base is the list of movies that I saw among the ones released in 2008.
Some shots don't have very good video quality -- that is because I was simultaneously holding the camera and drawing at the same time. So the focus is a little off because I was holding the camera too close.
Most shots are sped up 2x, some of them are at 4x speed.
