2013 FF: Figure this was an appropriate day to post this one, no? I love these ensemble comedies and all their consistently moving parts. This one is more worthy of a “guilty pleasure” tag, but I enjoy it every time I watch it. Here’s my look back: More

Jennifer Aniston (44) – Hoping that “We’re the Millers” is finally the hit comedy movie you deserve for cracking me up for a decade on “FRIENDS” and that you strike a pose that becomes all the rage at the awards shows.
Taylor Lautner (21) – A new big franchise because now that you’re legally able to drink, there’s going to be an even bigger swarm of cougars ready to pounce and you’ll need to hire all the extra security you can afford to fend them off.
Burt Reynolds (77) – Rewatched “The Longest Yard” 2005 remake and was reminded you need to do more movies. We need more suave experienced actors who can prove it’s possible to age well and be smooth doing it.

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

The sequel to the greatest modern day film soap opera, “Twilight,” returns with “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” packed with teen angst, unrequited love, vampires, werewolves and sculpted abs the likes of which have not been seen since “300.” [2012 Flash Forward: Seriously, these guys do a tremendous job of inspiring me not to take my shirt off - ever] More
