There are really only three requirements to be nominated at the 2008 Hollmann Awards.
1) The film must have a US release in 2008
2) I have to have seen the film between Jan 1, 2008 and January 20, 2009
3) Don't suck
With that in mind, I present the following films in contention for the 2008 Hollmann Awards in 2009:
Be Kind Rewind
Burn After Reading
City of Ember
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Dark Knight
Diary of the Dead
The Foot Fist Way
The Forbidden Kingdom
Hellboy II: The Golden Army
Horton Hears a Who!
In Search of a Midnight Kiss
The Incredible Hulk
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
Quantum of Solace
Rachel Getting Married
Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired
Son of Rambow
Then She Found Me
Vicky Cristina Barcelona
You Don’t Mess with the Zohan
Zack and Miri Make a Porno
That's a total of 59 flicks, though still pending are Bolt (which I'm watching tonight), Last Chance Harvey (which just opened here), The Reader (which is playing at the local art house) and The Visitor (which I got from Netflix).
Last year, I had 86 films in contention. Geez. What happened? Was I easier to please or something? Heavens.
Anyway, there's 59 films, with an additional four maybes, so hopefully I'll have a full 63 films to choose from. Let's find out.
