That’s right, movie geeks; it’s that time of year again. No, not Thanksgiving, or Christmas. Not winter or Awards Season either. No, it’s THAT time of year again; once more, we must move aside and give the movie theaters to all the little Twilight fans. All week, they have be lining up and buying out all the movie theaters in their area to watch the next chapter in the “best franchise ever,” (says one tween I just made up right now). This is just downright unfair. There are so many good movies out there right now, and we have to watch as people across the nation spend money on a franchise like Twilight? Even worse, they are controlling the entire movie theater! How are you possibly going to break through the lines of vampire teens and creepy Twilight moms to go catch a movie this weekend? Well, TMP is here to help!

And for a movie like this week’s Green Lantern, first impressions are everything. If they don’t like the first outing, why would audiences come back for a second? Green Lantern needs to nail its origin story if it hopes to become the next big superhero franchise. Here are eight other origin stories that Green Lantern should try to emulate if it wants to hit its mark.
