Forizzer’s Halfway Awards

forizzcars

Yes, it is that time of year. Even though it’s been a few weeks past the midway point, I figured I’d post this anyways. Plus I was just waiting to reach the century mark in 2009 films seen. Well, enjoy. I haven’t seen everything that’s been released thus far in the year, but you know I try. I’ll also make my awards exclusively to films that have set dates for American releases – just to make it fair to the competition. (Sorry Martin Landau and Christian McKay)

    Awesome, I’m leaving to see Moon shortly so I’ll let you know what I think. I hope Rockwell’s as good as most people are saying. Where did you end up seeing Maria Larsson’s Everlasting Moments, I’ve been meaning to check it out.

  2. forizzer69 says:

    I downloaded it a long time ago – it was never released here. Maybe it was a few months ago, but it only played briefly; far too briefly for me to see downtown. I do believe it will be on DVD shortly. Whenever I get word on its DVD release, I’ll let you know. Oh, and I hope you enjoy Moon!

    Really cool noms, man. I’m going to blog mine in a minute.

    I hope I’m seeing Moon tomorrow.

    “Dove of Peace” — that’s the name of the song from Bruno? That will probably be my win for Best Song this year. Absolutely hysterical.

    “The Spirit of Adventure” was a decent song, too.

    I’ve got a hardon for the Amy Adams love. [cheers]
