The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

As 2008 comes to an end, it is time to close the book on the entertainment experiences that we have had this year. Yes, Transformers blew our minds. Girls, Sex and the City blew your minds.
