"You're so money, and you don't even know it."
Everyone needs a little emotional boost now and again, and what easier way to feel better than getting a quick compliment — or a quick hundred compliments. Watch this supercut of the greatest movie compliments of all time, and consider them to be meant for you. Actually, some movie characters, such as Napoleon Dynamite, aren't that adept at compliments.

Just because the Twilight franchise is done, doesn't mean we are done with the Twilight franchise.
Since the first Twilight movie was released in 2008, the Twilight phenomenon has swept the globe, with the franchise's final installment, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, earning $784 million in worldwide box office. Many Twilight fans have openly admitted that the movies and books have become a full-blown obsession, even an addiction, at times coming at a cost of other relationships in their lives.
So why has Twilight struck such a chord with so many? New York psychologist Dr. Niloo Dardashti believes she has the answer, but will only reveal it in her documentary Into the Twilight Haze, as detailed in the doc's press release. After all, psychologists don't offer all their advice for free. watch the trailer and a clip from the documentary >> Posted 12.26.12 by Ryan
As of this weekend, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 broke the $700M mark at the box office, and it's closing in on New Moon to become the highest grossing pic in the franchise.
Summit and Lionsgate, already busy counting un-hatched chickens, reportedly made the official announcement that Breaking Dawn - Part 1 will have the top spot, even though it still has several million to go to actually pass New Moon which eventually hit $709.8M worldwide. Breaking Dawn has $8.62M to go to catch up.
Adding fuel to the speculation, Breaking Dawn - Part 1 has had the strongest foreign box office sales so far, and has yet to open in Japan and China... though New Moon only hit $1.9M in Japan, so Japan's numbers alone probably won't be enough to close the gap completely.
Whether Breaking Dawn - Part 1 comes out on top or not, it's clear that it's a huge hit, and hopefully that means that the saga will continue. Posted 01.23.12 by Mandy
A new exhibition is opening this week at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian called “Behind the Scenes: The Real Story of the Quileute Wolves," and the museum points out that "the tribe's heritage does not include werewolves." Maybe Stephenie Meyer's Twilight saga isn't based on a true story after all.
The exhibition will showcase 23 rare works of Quileute art including headresses, rattles, baskets, and more. There are also historic drawings from the early 20th century made by teens who attended the Quileute Day School at Mora, WA (near Jacob Black's hometown, La Push). The events depicted in the teens' drawings include wolf ritual dances, shamanistic performances, and whaling scenes, but the drawings apparently do not include any scenes of brutal fights against sparkly-skinned vampires.
The exhibition does acknowledge Twilight, and the influence the franchise has had on the tribe. In a twelve-minute looped video that is part of the exhibit, topics of oral histories and cultural traditions are discussed, as well as interviews where tribal members and teens discuss the Twilight phenomenon.
The exhibition, organized by the Quileute Nation, has already run at the Seattle Art Museum, and will run at the Smithsonian from January 13, 2012 through May 9, 2012. Posted 01.09.12 by Mandy
Becoming the ninth film of 2011 to have grossed $500 mill worldwide in twelve days, Breaking Dawn Part 1 has surpassed many expectations. Eleven other films also hit $220 million in North America in just ten days, but the numbers still deem impressive to the Twilight Saga. With $223.4 million domestically and $285 million internationally, Breaking Dawn has definitely done Summit Entertainment proud, and the Co-chairmen of Summit, Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger, had something to say about it.
We couldn't be more pleased with the success of this film and a franchise that the fans have continued to support over the past several years. Thank you to all involved with the films from the actors, filmmakers and Stephenie Meyer to the most important group of all, the global fan base that continues to drive a desire for more Edward, Jacob and Bella
Even though New Moon continues to carry the crown as far as Twilight box office success goes, with a domestic earning of $233 million at the same point in North America, Breaking Dawn is managing to out do the third movie to the saga, Eclipse. This may be a breakthrough for the movie, but there is still a significant amount of time before the movie is out of theaters. Posted 12.01.11 by reelz
We told you last week about Fathom Events hosting all three of the previous Twilight movies on the Tuesdays in November, leading up to the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. To get fans even more pumped about seeing the movie again on the big screen, they've put together a trailer for Twilight Tuesdays. While it's disappointing that the trailers to contain any of the "new" footage that is promised for the re-releases, it's never a bad thing to see the most memorable images from the Twilight series again.
Along with this (sort-of) new trailer, the French poster for Breaking Dawn Part 1 has also recently been released and we're still not sure why the French titles (Fascination, Tentation, Hésitation and Révélation) of Stephenie Meyer's series aren't even sort-of literal translations of the English titles. Far more upsetting though, is that the French get to watch Breaking Dawn two days before we get to see it in the US. Perhaps it's worth going on a sight-seeing/movie-watching trip to Paris the third week of November? Watch the Twilight Tuesdays Trailer Posted 10.11.11 by Mandy

Kiowa Gordon, who plays werewolf Embry Call in the Twilight movies, was arrested in Tempe, Arizona, early Monday morning. The 21-year-old actor was taken in to custody because of an active warrant from 2010. The teen wolf had failed to make a court appearance in Mesa, AZ, in September 2010 related to a DUI arrest, and had also missed a hearing in Scottsdale after having plead guilty to drug paraphernalia possession and giving alcohol to a minor. It sounds like he should have stuck to jumping off cliffs in Forks, Washington.
The Arizona actor became a part of the New Moon cast thanks to author Stephenie Meyer. The actor is a Mormon and a member of the same church ward as the writer, who suggested he join the Quileute wolf pack. The actor will reprise his role as Embry in the upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 1.

If you haven't heard (and how could you not) the final Harry Potter is currently in theaters, and if you thought that the conclusion of the highest-grossing movie franchise in history would go out with anything less than a spectacular bang, then you're dumber than Grawp.
In his final outing in theaters, the boy wizard is taking out more than Lord Voldemort. Harry Potter has his spectacles set on a number of box office records.
Let's go through what records have already been smashed and which are in danger:
Midnight: Harry Potter has already topped Eclipse's $30M record with a staggering $43.5M. The movie played in more than 3,800 screens and Warner Brothers said nearly all of the 3-D screenings were sold out, so it looks like the decision to add another dimension to Harry Potter is already paying off.
Single Day: We won't know this until this weekend but it looks like New Moon's record of $72M is endangered. Some theaters are reportedly screening the movie around the clock today. Warner Bros. told Deadline that it's expecting Deathly Hallows to gross another $40M before the end of the day today, putting the movie at around $80M. Twihards are going to be pissed.
Widest Opening: Eclipse still holds the record for the widest opening ever. Harry Potter opened on 4,375 screens, while Eclipse opened to 4,468 screens. which records will Deathly Hallows have come Monday? >> Posted 07.15.11 by Chris
