    I used to hate Kristen but than I googled her … umm…. performance in “On the Road”. Her double handjob scene was AVN Award worthy.

    I would like to see Lincoln and Life of Pie. I could care less about Twilight. The purchasing power of teenagers is incredible.

    I hear ya, C-Dub! At least Potter and Twilight are done (momentarily, anyway) but there’s always another crap franchise to fill the void. 🙁

    Maybe they could do a Potter/Twilight mash-up like Alien VS Predator… or better still ‘Potter VS Alien’ and ‘Twilight VS Predator’.

    Those are some awesome ideas, NI — do you think you could work in a “Step Up” storyline as well?

    I could phase-in the Step Up storyline into this mash-up; unfortunately, my scripts running awfully short.

    Everybody from the twilight/potter franchise dies screaming within 5 minutes.
