It's the end of The Twilight Saga

  • Mr. Moviefone reviews two very different choices at the movies
  • The 5th and final film in 'The Twilight Saga' and 'Silver Linings Playbook'

Russ Leatherman, also known as Mr. Moviefone, has a look at two new choices in theaters this weekend. One is a big budget vampire epic that people camped out to see opening night and the other is a quieter dramatic comedy about clinical depression with a weird title.

"The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn: Part 2" is the former. "These movies have never been great,”says Leatherman, "but that doesn’t matter to the fans because they love this franchise!” He also points out that for those who DON'T love this franchise, there's good news for you too. This is the 5th and final Twilight film.

WATCH: Is new 007 movie 'Skyfall' Oscar-worthy?

"Silver Linings Playbook" is the the other film on Mr. Moviefone's radar. It opens small this weekend and will roll out nationally next week. Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence star. Leatherman says it's "Sad, funny, romantic. You're gonna love it." Lots of Oscar buzz around Jennifer Lawrence's performance.
