never read the books but since the movie and the books were getting oh so much hype and my girlfriend was nagging me to no end to see it with her, i figured what the hell, maybe there would be some part of me that secretly like it.
oh gawd was that a mistake
everything about this movie was cheesy as hell.
as far as love stories go, i dont see anybody other than twelve year old girls who could be shallow enough to get anything out of this.
if you for some reason were expecting action.... we're looking at epic fail
the story was weak and the effects were FAR under par
and as a final note, all the bubbly teenage girls and soccer moms around me applauded the film that was indeed two hours of my life that i'll never get back.....

endrant.


am i the only one who thought this was overhyped?

I haven't seen it yet, but I read the books far before every ****ing teenage girl was obsessed with them. I liked them a lot, but wasn't like ****ing obsessed. When I saw there was going to be a movie, I though 'Hey, that might be cool if they do it right.' Cause in like the books Meyer makes like the most mundane events seem interesting. Anyways, saw the previews, it's going to suck. Probly won't see it, thanks for the heads up.

I totally agree. I saw it. I regretted it. Terrible, terrible acting, and everything. The plot really doesn't develop until about halfway into the movie, and it's terrible albeit.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

The fact that there is almost 0 plot in the whole movie ruin it for you?

The amateurish acting?

The butchering of vampire lore?

I could keep going...

i would have to say that non existent plot was the most painful

though the acting was a close second

I read the book and thought it was okay at times, but it's pretty shallow. Everything that Edward said and did would have been seen as really creepy if he looked like Nosferatu. Plus, I thought that his brand of moodiness would be a turn-off, but apparently, it's okay is he's handsome enough. I also got tired of reading all about how Edward's good looks every other paragraph. Stephanie Meyer quickly ran out of synonyms for "perfect."

oh man I have to agree. It was like a 13 year old girl took the idea of a vampire and took away most of the things that seemed cool. like when they go in the sunlight they sparkle and shimmer. where is the burning and eternal damnation? There was a part during the musical montage where my girlfriend and i just could not stop laughing and then it randomly looked like a George Michaels video. and to make it worse, buying the tickets for it put me over my account balance by $0.35 cents, so i owed the bank $35. I paid $54 dollars to see that movie. sorry I just needed a place to vent about that.

This is probably exactly how it goes in the studio

*real musicians come in and actually write the music*

*brothers come in weeks later*

"Okay boys your gonna play this riff and sing these lyrics, but we to be given credit for writing these songs"

"Pff were the jonas brothers we dont have to do that"

I never read the books. As soon as I heard what they were about, my first thought was :

pathetic ****ing cheesefest more predictable than a soap opera.

You've just confirmed that. Though from what I hear from friends who read the books and saw the movie, even they though the movie sucked.

I guess pathetic predictable cheesefests are better in book form since you're free to create you're own damn fantasies, rather than having a specific image forced down your throat.

Well technically...The sunlight part is more accurate historically speaking. Vampires were never killed by sunlight until Nosferatu. In Bram Stoker's Dracula sunlight just caused them to be weaker and not their crazy powerful selves like they were at night. Nosferatu was the first time a vampire could be killed by sunlight.

And dude, I feel you with the account balance thing. I've been close before and not knowing whether you're over or not can suck...Panic ensues...

Oh, and did you guys ever hear the rumor that Dracula by B. Stoker is really a metaphor for his homosexual love affair with Oscar Wilde? I heard that and was like "WTF?" being as I loved the book.

Totally. I was lured in by the premise of vampires, thinking that there was bound to be enough Rice-like content to tide me through the romance. Oh, to look back in retrospect...

While I'm typing, I had a good Twilight-related joke not long ago that I would like to share:

I was with a friend on a band trip, and one of my bandmates had a mission in Wal-Mart to replace a borrowed copy of Eclipse that had been mauled by her cat. She found a copy, but later realized that it was in Spanish. When she went back to the books section to exchange it for an English copy, I said to my friend, "I wonder how many words the Spanish language has that are synonymous with perfecto."

I appreciate your vampire knowledge and I want to read that book now. One of my friends was telling me about how the steak through the heart thing was a myth from grease or something because they used to pin them to the coffin and that there really isn't a way to kill a vampire and now they are starting to freak me out a bit. Damn you buffy and van helsing for giving me a false sense of comfort. altho the japanese vampire's seem pretty cool

Which made no sense at all. Iron & Wine and Radiohead are so far above teenage girls it's ridiculous. The movie was obviously tailored for that audience, so why not put in something top 40?

read the book, pretty sappy, but its really aimed for teenage kids and some strange boys, every page theres something about "edwards nice hair" or "edwards godly chest" that you get really pissed, the only action comes near the end.

ill probably watch the movie just for the lulz (like i did with HSM3 :p, im badass baby)
I see you're not using the UG black theme
