This week sees one of the biggest films of the year released. Now before I go into too much detail with that let me add that the film is the biggest not because it will be particularly award worthy, not because it will be one of the best of the year, and not because everyone loves it. No the reason it will be so big is that this film's fan base (ladies you know who you are) will swamp cinemas for the next few weeks to witness two 'heart throbs' removing their shirts. Now for me this just doesn't cut it as a big film but in terms of money I can understand why the producers would do it. The film is bound to bag loads of cash for the companies who made it regardless of if it is any good so that is why it is seen as one of the biggest films of the year, unfortunately. Due to this then nothing much else is to be released but there are 2 that may interest you. Have a look at them below.
1. Ok so for those of you who aren't aware, that big film I mentioned is THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN - PART 2. Back, and now as a vampire, is Bella who has become the number one enemy of the Volturi when they hear her baby is mortal. Werewolves and vampires join forces to protect the girl who has been the centre of a love triangle since the beginning. It all boils down to one epic conclusion. Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, & Peter Facinelli. Can they protect their offspring?

2. As well as Twilight we are given a sweet foreign film brought to us Michael Haneke, director of Funny Games. AMOUR is the story of an elderly couple, both of whom were music teachers, whose relationship becomes strained when one of them falls severely ill. Starring: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva, Isabelle Huppert, & Alexandre Tharaud. Can their love last?
3. Finally we have MENTAL a film evolving around a suffering relationship due to the husband's political ambitions. With the couple struggling to be there for their children they hire a nanny who transforms the families' ways with her crazy personality. Starring: Liev Schreiber, Toni Collette, Caroline Goodall, & Anthony LaPaglia. How crazy can it get?
That is that for this weekend then. Expect your local cinema to be absolutely rammed with Twilight fans because theatres are designated for them this weekend. Causes pain for many of you I know but hey they've got to make their money somehow. It leaves not much for the other cinemagoers though so I suggest the brilliant Argo or Skyfall to fill your time. If you're planning on seeing a smaller film please ring in advance as last year they were cancelling films to show more Twilight. Just gives us another reason to dislike it. Anyway enjoy whatever you see even if you succumb to peer pressure and join the girlfriend in viewing vampire love.
