X Factor ' High School Musical 3: Senior Year' Is the "HSM" vision big enough to fill the wide screen? And will parents and teens shell out big bucks for something they previously got for nothing on TV? Are you kidding me? After millions of dollars worth of CDs, DVDs, books, shirts, concert tickets and other forms of merchandise, the latest "HSM" installment is already among MovieTickets.com's list of all-time pre-release ticket sellers. ' Saw V' Every Halloween for the last five years, Americans have gotten quite a bloody trick from Jigsaw. Conventional wisdom dictates that eventually this bloody trail will have to come to an end, but the movies so far have all been successful enough to keep the streak going. Will 2008 be the year when we all get sick of torture? Only the blood-thirsty American teenager can decide for us. WINNER: Once again, "HSM" takes this one. Money talks, and in the case of "HSM," it's a whole lot of money.
