Sparkle Beats Felt

By the time you read this, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1” will have grossed half a billion dollars globally. I am sad about this.

Of course, my feelings about the “Twilight” movies are entirely irrelevant, as evidenced by the new film’s position atop the box-office charts for a second week. Its $42 million take this weekend — part of the $62.3 million haul over the five-day window of American Thanksgiving — kept it safely in the top spot. “The Muppets” placed a distant second with a respectable $29.5 million/$42 million; “Happy Feet Two“, “Arthur Christmas” and “Hugo” were well behind in third, fourth and fifth place.

The silver lining here is that four of the top five films are worthy and interesting family movies, and hopefully they’ll pick up speed over the week and one of them will displace the abstience vampire porn next weekend. That would be nice.

In the meantime, here’s a thought for American families: Stop seeing “Twilight” movies. This is why the terrorists hate us!*



* On second thought, the success of the “Twilight” movies is probably not why the terrorists hate us. I suspect religious fundamentalists would be totally on board with what Stephenie Meyer is all about. You may now shudder quietly to yourselves.
