Best of 2008

Since many magazines, TV shows, and web sites are doing their best of lists this time of the year, I thought I’d do mine.

I am sure many other really good movies were released in 2008, but I only included the ones that Carlos and I saw. (Maybe Carlos will also do a list?)

Plus, my best of lists will NEVER include Will Ferrell or Tom Cruise.

American Teen
Iron Man
Michael Clayton
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Gosh, I haven't seen half of those movies.
I'm glad to see Milk up there. I've been wanting to see it. I was just about to ask if anyone wanted to see it. Drat. I guess I'll see it alone.

Half, Jason? I haven't seen one single one on any of his lists.

I want to see the Top 10 Best TV Shows of 2008 list, Marshall.
