Speculative Fiction Movies Dominate top 25

Get your copy of The Dark Knight on DVD and help support the project IMDB presented their top 25 searched for films of 2008.  They wanted to go for a ranking that was not based on box-office performance or critical assessments.  I was pleasantly surprised to see how many speculative fiction movies were on the list.

  1. The Dark Knight (2008)

  2. Twilight (2008)

  3. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)

  4. TR2N (2011) Tron 2, I still don’t really care for the name

  5. The Expendables (2010)

  6. Iron Man (2008)

  7. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

  8. No Country for Old Men (2007)

  9. Juno (2007)

  10. Transformers (2007)

  11. The Incredible Hulk (2008)

  12. There Will Be Blood (2007)

  13. Sex and the City (2008)

  14. Into the Wild (2007)

  15. Superbad (2008)

  16. Cloverfield (2008)

  17. Terminator Salvation (2009)

  18. Wanted (2008)

  19. Dragonball (2009)

  20. Quantum of Solace (2008)

  21. The Departed (2006)

  22. Star Trek (2009) This is J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek

  23. The Godfather (1972)

  24. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)

  25. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)


SF moves took up 60% of the chart with only 1/3 of those movies being ones that have not been released yet.

I find these search reports to be fascinating like a snap shot of what is on peoples minds and what they are curious about.
