    @ROFLitschristian Just because it has a high RT score doesn't mean anything. I've read as much bad as I have good.

    Wow... That's a sickening amount for Twilight. On top of that, I can't believe to see Taken 2 still hangin' in there!

    I am no fan of Twilight but I will say that the last 30 minutes or so was pretty good. Michael Sheen was pretty decent as well but the acting was just horrible and the special effects for their daughter was atrocious. How can you be a billion dollar franchise and have such terrible special effects??

    I'm breaking my silence on Twilight films just to say this: I really hope they reboot the franchise just to give some of you more to bitch about.

    I read that "Skyfall"...by 8 November 2012, the film had earned over $91 million to surpass "The Dark Knight Rises" as the highest grossing film of 2012, and the highest grossing James Bond film of all time in the UK

    Thumbs up to another healthy grossing weekend, 2012 has been a ridiculous year financially. But other than that, ya know... screw Twilight.

    The good news is, a dead President beat out a kids movie, and Skyfall is now the highest grossing Bond of all time.

    The so called "Epic Finale" that couldn't even break New Moon's opening record. I'm terribly disappointed
