SCENE & HEARD: The Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn, Part 2

For many, the passing of the Twilight franchise on film (for now anyway) will be something of a relief, if not a cause for celebration. Yet for this sad little loser, it was an emotional affair. I may not have the excuse of having grown up with the books, but I do remember the series being the first one in a long time that I really loved, precisely because it was so improbable and silly. I was weaned on the outrageously awful Australian soap opera Home and Away as a child, so when my brain saw something with just as …


BOX OFFICE RESULTS: November 23-25

This holiday I was thankful I did not have to sit through the number one movie for the weekend: Twilight 9: Twiharder. It is no surprise that the last installment of the vampires who sparkle saga topped the charts, but thankfully other movies made lots of money as well. All the way down to the number seven slot in the weekend numbers (which was taken by Red Dawn) made at least 10 million, which is great news for film. You can see the full top ten chart and how much the movies made after the jump. 


How Bad Is It? – The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2

Head of the UTG film department and mastermind behind Reasonable Remakes, Justin Proper has brought us another new column. Ladies and gentleman, allow us to introduce you to: How Bad Is It?

Movies are the number one source of entertainment according to a statistic I just made up. Everyone loves going to the movies. It’s a standard date night, and has helped millions of teens awkwardly hold hands in the dark. Movies are a great escape from reality, and help people relieve the stress of their lives. Unfortunately every once in a while a movie gets released that ruins the …


RUMOUR: Twilight To Get A Spin-Off?

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into theatres (well, not quite, Breaking Dawn Part 2 isn’t out til next month), it seems you may breathe a heavy sigh of frustration as the Twilight saga may yet continue in another form. Rumours continue to emerge which indicate that studio Lionsgate/Summit may be considering a spin-off of Twilight to pick up where Breaking Dawn will leave off. It seems any potential project could focus on more secondary characters, such as the Wolf Pack or even the Volturi clan, in a bid to further explore the world of Stephenie …


Tracklist For “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2” Revealed

The Twilight Saga has never been given much love from UTG. I would ramble on about why that is, but something tells me the majority of our readers don’t mind the lack of Edward and Bella on our homepage. The one thing this drawn out series has given the world that is not completely terrible though, is a relatively engaging series of soundtracks. Even though they don’t pack the hits, someone on the Twilight team has managed to wrangle an impressive list of talent over the years and the soundtrack to this Fall’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part

Forget “The Twilight Saga,” We Want “The Muppet Saga”

There’s a lot of hype surrounding the return of emotionally crippled teenagers in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One this week, but we’ve found something we think would be much, much better.

SCENE & HEARD: The Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn Part One

Written by UTG critic Grace DuffyScene & Heard takes a look at the music that makes our favorite films so memorable.
