This weekend at the movies is all about the love of vampires, but let’s not forget our favorite non-aviating birds and George Clooney in what may be an Oscar-winning role!

Breaking Dawn: Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) get married and celebrate a honeymoon that is cut short by a certain unexpected arrival in Breaking Dawn. The fourth film in the Twilight Saga hit screens at midnight last night and has already banked a record $30 million. Our Breaking Dawn review takes you through the film and lets you know whether you should be excited as a Twilight fan or as a regular movie fanatic.

But, the duo that steals the entire film is Brad Pitt and Matt Damon as a couple of krill who refuse to go with the crowd. The film is an absolute joy as we discuss in our Happy Feet 2 review.

The Descendants: George Clooney rivets in his portrayal of a father who is trying to keep his family together in the wake of tragedy. Alexander Payne of Sideways fame has done it again as the writer-director has crafted a film that is powerful on a multitude of levels. The Descendants is also a love letter to the state of Hawaii and even addresses issues that are pertinent to the citizens who live there. In this season of Oscar bait, The Descendants has established itself as a front-runner as we delve into in our The Descendants review.
