Movie Roundup: Groundhog Day Edition

I plan to have a formal Best of 2008 List up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how ambitious I am (and I want to read David Bordwell’s essay on Slumdog Millionaire before I make a final decision about it). Until then, here’s the roundup of what I’ve watched in the last few weeks and where they place on their respective years:

Snow Angels: 48, 2007
Gran Torino: 2008
Anchors Aweigh: 16, 1945

Hellboy II: 2008
Manhatta: 4, 1921
Chop Shop: 10, 2007
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time: 20, 2006
