A few days back, I gave you my list of all the movies I saw in 2008 (that had been released between October 2007 and December 2008) and ended with My Top 5 Favorite Movies. That post has become an annual tradition round these parts. I know, real original, right?!?!?!? Well, I’m just stealing a…

Lost – ‘Jughead’ – 5.3
