So is Dear Zachary Filmspot eligible/a 2009 film or not?

Also, I tend to agree with FLY most of the time.

Must have forgotten to put that on there too. Bad ass. I had to re-post because I forgot all about Me and Orson Welles, Up in the Air, and Precious and I was using the list when filling out my Filmspots ballot. Didn't need it for Avatar since I already knew what I was nominating that one for. I'm much closer to 100 than I had initially thought. Bad ass. I'll update that one now.

Now see about knocking it off your top 20. ;)

Paul Blart, Bright Star, Still Walking, and A Town Called Panic are the ones left, I think, so you think any of those can do it?
