The Best 2008 Recap You'll Ever See - 2008: The Cinescape
Put down whatever it is you're doing. Find somewhere comfortable to sit. And watch this video now. Last year, Matt Shapiro made one of the best cinematic recaps ever, called 2007: A Year for Drama, and he's back again with a 2008 recap called 2008: The Cinescape. This time it's not just drama, but a look at everything that has made 2008 a memorable year for movies. If there's anyone that can capture in 4-minutes the exact reasons why I love waking up every morning so happy to be doing what I do, it's Matt Shapiro. This video really does capture an entire year's worth of movies better than any words can.
Watch the 2008: The Cinescape recap:
Thank you to Matt for sending this over today - you've made my day. He's literally covered every last movie, I don't think there is one that deserves to be in this recap that isn't. Like last year, he took a montage of clips from some of the year's most unforgettable films and made me shed a tear by reminding me that it's about the joy of watching movies, not about criticism. And Matt has done that yet again, this time to the sound of Sigur Ros' "Hoppipola". And I love that Cloverfield has some time in here, because we can't forget that it was a 2008 movie, too. What a great way to kick off 2009 and also put the finishing touches on 2008.
