    Ok I think it may be time for me to turn in my Gay card, or maybe I am getting to just be an old fart but I have to admit that I just do not understand the big hype on the Twilight series. I think they are just average/below average movies and I just can't get into them.

    I have tried because of all the hype and everyone talking about how great they are but the only thing I think they have going for them, and the only reason I keep watching them is to see Taylor Lautnor with his shirt off!!!!

    Other than that I think the acting sucks, the story sucks and I just don't get it....

    Ok, I am ready for my beating, bashing and 'BAD GAY" comments now.

    Just had to vent because I feel like I am the only one!! Maybe there is a support group somewhere for people like me? Lmao!!!

    It really is a second-rate movie series. At least the Potter movies (I can't speak of the Twilight books, because I've never read them.) have some greater depth and, at least in the cast of the middle- to later movies, called upon their young actors to stretch their acting muscles.

    I sincerely doubt, aside from Taylor Lautner's physique, that these movies will prove all that memorable.

    It does. But that doesn't stop me from cudding with my pillow and pretending it's Robert Pattinson

    i wanted to see it simply for the bear vs vampire fight scenes.. could care less about the story...

    was the fighting epic at least? or was it unintentional comedy like Last Airbender (barrrf)

    I don't think you need to check in you gay card for this one. It seems its teenage girls and adult women that are all over it. I don't know a lot of gays who like the series.

    The first Twilight book is not well-written and panders heavily to its teen girl geek target market (in large part by making Bella an empty vessel for the readers to project themselves onto and identify with). Even so, the first Twilight movie is worse than the book it's based on; even though I don't like the book, I think it deserves more than what it got in its movie adaptation.

    Though I understand the hype and the love for it, I disagree with both and wish someone would either find or write something more worthy of the attention and money.

    Same; not diggin it, and I don't like Tyler nor Robert so that was a waste of time...
    And then I talked to a friend I admire so much and all I could hear was how 'deep' and irresistable the movies were, ugh

    Yeah, I'm not the biggest fan. I did think that this last movie (I'm not going to insult the industry by calling it a film), was by far the best.... it still just left me mediocre though. I liked the very first scene - it was actually a little intense - and I got excited based off that, but then the rest fell into a better version of the cliche that it has been.
    The best thing about the movie: Jackson Rathbone (or however you spell his name).


    My opinion, if you want a much better version of Twilight, watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel (and don't stop after season one just because season one sucks).

    I've never read the books and have seen all of the movies. I go because I'm dragged along and maybe, deep down, I have a slight interest in seeing the next part of the story, no matter how bad the movie is. However; I think that a majority of the population enjoys the movie because it is a sappy romance involving vampires. They'd rather see this than something more intellectually stimulating, just because it is easier to relate to.

    I thought I was looking at a badly written soap opera series targeted towards horny preteens with really high production costs. You are not alone in thinking it more resembles mid-to-low grade garbage than some substantial work, other than Lautner's physique, which is the only thing carrying the films.

    I equate it to soft-core porn for women with tons of CGI effects.

    Too funny. I tried to read the first book - and just couldn't. I sent it to my 10 year old niece and she just LOVED it. Enough said. icon_wink.gif

    I'm more a fan of the books then the movies. But i dont have a problem with the actors and how they act. I believe they're doing it pretty well icon_smile.gif

    I loathed it, so empty shallow and boring, and that was just the storyline.

    The books, of the 2 i read before i tried to pull my teeth out are like a mills and boone serious with all the raunchy stuff stripped out of it.

    Hmmmm. So the millions of girl teen moviegoers are a particularly discerning, intelligent demographic? Well, that's a relief.

    I walked out half way through the first one because it was soo boring and depressing,every scene is cloudy and rainy and they all talk in monotone especially the girl,she fucks me off.

    I can't see how you can watch it and not walk out wanting to kill yourself icon_mad.gif

    The only description worthy of the Twilight series is a pungent vomit of pseudo-characters swimming in some self-important juice of their own sappy making that they badly attempt to pass off as actual problems/drama. The series continues the 'good' fight against the intellect.

    yeah, i was subjected to the first one...I've seen better acting in daytime soap operas, also better storylines. Although to be fair I've only seen maybe one or two episodes of any soap.
    In my opinion...this series is a whole bunch of hollywood laughing at the general public.
