    The first movie was just so awful, and then I read the books thinking they may be better than the movies. I was wrong. Stephenie Meyer is by far one of the worst writers I've ever had the displeasure of reading. She does a good job of making you interested in the end result of the book's overall plot, but the drudgery you are forced to skim through to get to the end is unbearable.

    The final book is literally a buildup to a big battle between the Cullen clan and the Volturri clan, and in the end, both sides walk away. It was such a fucking waste of 400 pages. I wanted to find this daft bitch and punch her in the throat.

    My wife is a twilight fanatic and she dragged me last night to the midnight showing.

    24 theaters sold out...over 3000 people. It was stupid.

    The only scene that looked remotely interesting when some dumb vampire was gonna fight 4 or 5 wolves lasted only 2 and a half seconds.

    Girls ranging from ages 40-16 were screaming their heads off when the guy takes his shirt off and in the end they were all hugging and screaming together

    it was one of the saddest displays I have ever seen.

    I was obviously the dick making dumb comments throughout the movie getting punched from my wife.

    Awful movie, awful acting

    Also why are the ladies into this robert patterson guy...he has his shirt off in the movie and he is a skinny little pip squeek. I would break him in fucking half

    Girls love Twilight because for a specific age range, it's like sex without the actual sex. Plus, it's the range that they can handle. For others, it's just the idea of those kind of guys I suppose. :eusa_eh:

    As Ebert said:

    And to end this post I will repeat this once again for all:

    Vampires do NOT sparkle. :evil:

    Robert Pattinson had the luck to be cast as Edward, THAT'S why they love him. They loved Edward before Robert was even cast in the part.

    But you are absolutely right about the acting talent in this franchise. Kristen Stewart is easy to appreciate in a film like Into the Wild or Adventureland. She is 100% WRONG for the part of Bella. In the fourth book, Bella is pregnant and gives birth to a vampire baby. Kristen will butcher the motherly role that was portrayed in the book. And no, I'm not making up the vampire baby part. That's just how awful Meyer's writing is. Just wait until you hear the baby's name. (Hint, it's Renesmee, and the werewolf Jacob calls her "Nessie.") You just can't make shit that terrible up.
