Joining Jay in giving the past twelve months a damn good thrashing are Vern, Heather, Lackey and Howard to list of their five best films from the past year, a year which provided the most variety amongst these lists than any year before.

Also on tap: Last Lamb Standing games, plugs, and voicemail messages left by Richard Kirkham, Jeanette Ward, Rebecca Sharp, DJ Valentine, Elwood Jones, Kristen Lopez, Tony Cogan, David Brook, Mette Kowalski, Damien Riley and JD Duran.
