Only 25? Sub-Honorable Mentions

I have a rule: no more than 25 films get cited for awards. 10 nominees, 15 honorable mentions. That's it.

I watch a lot of movies, and while not all the movies I enjoy are CLASSICS, they really should be enjoyed. So, I give them an Honorable Mention if they aren't Top 10 material.

But, since I watch a lot more movies from modern times than the 1940s, I sometimes have more than 25 cited films. These films are really good, but not THE BEST. So...these are the Sub-Honorable Mentions. Films that I liked, but weren't Top 25 material.

More will be added as I see more films in crowded years (in other words, any post-1987 year, since 1987 is when there is a BIG spike in number of films I've seen).

SPIDER (2002)
28 WEEKS LATER (2007)
35 SHOTS OF RUM (2009)

Also, all of the Harry Potter movies have been great, but I don't want them to crowd out other films, so only the 6th one gets an Honorable Mention. The rest go here.

HONORABLE MENTIONS: Alexander Nevsky, Gunga Din. NOTE: Generally considered the greatest year in film. It is too. I agree with 9/10 nominees, and the 10th, Love Affair, is OK. This happens in 2009, but since Blind Side is a poor film, and we only had 3 classics among all the films that year, it's not even a great year.
