The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 – Some people will hate on this series just because it seems like the thing to do, but for those who can lay off the sarcasm triggers long enough, this final installment of the “Twilight:” series was a lot of fun with one of the best fake-out scenes I’ve seen in years. This also has a special release date so instead of the normal Tuesday, it’s coming out this Friday just in case you were planning on camping out in front of Best Buy or Target to get it tomorrow.

I’ll have a list of all the Oscar winners in a bit, but here’s a few random thoughts about this year’s edition:
10. Halle Berry saying that the James Bond franchise was the one she’s most proudest to be a part of despite only appearing in one Bond film compared to the three X-Men films she’s starred in and yet thinking she got it completely right.
9. That completely awkward guessing game of trying to figure out what was going on with poor Renee Zellweger.
8. Wondering how few groups Seth MacFarlane had left on his “Who can I offend now?” list by the time the show ended. I’ve gotta figure there was very little white space left on his board. More

1.The Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn: Part 2 - $17.4 million [$254 million; 3rd week] – Thanksgiving was a week ago, but leftovers remain the main theme for this weekend’s box office. “BD2″ continued its reign atop the box office for a third week. Edward, Bella and Jacob should easily enjoy a fourth week on top with another round of weak newcomers before it drops to #2 once “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” opens Dec. 14. It’s #76 on the all-time domestic gross and could reach $275 million total. More

1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 – $141 million [debut week] – There should have been no shock that the final installment of the episodes of Bella, Edward and Jacob was this week’s #1, but surprisingly this wasn’t the best opening for the franchise. “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” ended the last Star Wars trilogy easily ahead of “Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones’” $80 million opening and far outpaced “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace’s” $64 million haul.

The “Twilight” movie franchise has always followed a simple formula. Go heavy on the hottie factor, dramatic declarations of love and a brief fight that hints at some potentially epic action if the filmmakers ever let us see the vampire vs. vampire vs. werewolf battle we’ve only been teased with since the beginning.
And while “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” gets off to a slow start and seems to be treading along the same acceptable, if not terribly exciting ground of the four films before it, the franchise finally shakes the shackles of being just a teen love story and ramps the action up for a finale that both rewards longtime fans with the most satisfying conclusion possible while providing a spectacular main event style brawl for action junkies.

I’m wondering if the last installment of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ will be for the hardcore fans like I was in the theater waiting for “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” to began. There’s that excitement of watching the next film, but that hint of sadness that this will be the last time I’d ever see a new Star Wars film for the first time. But cheer up Twilighters. There’s always hope for an Episode 7 … or “After Dawn.” For now, here’s a few pictures to further whet your appetite before it opens this Friday. More

Fully realizing I risk credibility and docking of several points on my man card, I’m fine saying I’ve enjoyed the “Twilight” film franchise. It’s not as deep as the Harry Potter films, but the filmmakers have done an excellent job of not dumbing down Stephenie Meyer’s novels. This FF looks at the film that started the phenomenon that sparked careers and brought the vampire craze to a new generation. More

Snow White and The Huntsman – I try not to discuss actor’s behind the scene dealings unless they’re doing something incredibly nice, but man was this movie not worth causing nearly irreparable damage to Kristen Stewart’s career. It looks pretty and Chris Hemsworth (“Thor“) is great whenever he’s on screen, but this isn’t one you have to add to your collection.
What to Expect When You’re Expecting- Five women (including Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and Brooklyn Decker) go through the thrills of having a baby. I didn’t see this one and I really have no real reason to go see it now. Still, enjoy the extra pic of J-Lo and one half of my least favorite “Lost” castaways.

I know, I know. You’d been waking up in the middle of the night covered in sweat, frantically trying to catch your breath wondering why no one had made Snow White into an action movie. Prepare for restful, uninterrupted sleep with the arrival of “Snow White & the Huntsman.”
But even then, you’re just as likely to be disappointed with the finished product, which is more familiar to other recent fantasy/adventure films than what could have been a very unique spin on an old fairy tale. More
