    The Talking Pig Award (For the two movies most alike released in the same year):
    – Let The Right One In & Twilight

    You must be kidding. If you concider these movies as “most alike” you obviously didn’t see both.

    I’ll give Twilight & Let the Right One In:

    The Sparkling Coke & Don Perignon Award (for the achievement to deliver such a tremendously different quality with such a tremendously similar plot)

  2. It’s true. I was kidding. I guess I thought it was obvious so I left out the winky face. I just didn’t think anyone in their right mind would take seriously the idea of two movies about vampires protecting the person they said they loved being alike.

    I’m going to have to assume your alcohol references are totally awesome and do not speak to a deeper concern in your personal life, but wait, now you’re saying they had “tremendously similar plots.” I just don’t know where you stand anymore. We were getting along so well and now this. Such a shame.
