Yes!!!! HP is the best!!! No one can bat Harry Potter!!! Cheers for Harry Potter and most importantly J.K. Rowling!!!! And, erm, Mamma Mia??? That’s not quite deserving, I mean I watched the movie and ABBA should really get the credit for the songs, but I guess the script was original………it really does not deserve it>……….

UGH! Twilight again…I wish that whole series would just disappear. The only people I know who have read it and liked it are people who are 1) not college educated, 2) don’t have a solid command of English, 2) red necks, 4) don’t appreciate what GOOD wriiting is. GAG ME! But on a positive note, yay for HP making the top ten list of the decade. Not surprised about LOTR but I am a little surprised about Mamma Mia- love the movie but definitely surprised that it beat out LOTR and HP.
