@Cash000: I think it was on Starz. We get a couple of those fancy schmancy channels with our cable package.

ETA: Nope, it was SHOtime, Eclipse is on now.

I’ve read the books and seen the movies, but the movie Bella is totally different from the book Bella other than being awkward. She kills it for me.

@KatyElle:so agreed I am not a fan of movie bella or movie edward either.

I read the books YEARS ago before they were popular. Since my mom worked for the publisher I always got books from her for free esp the new authors. I loved the books years back. But esp with the movie and all the hype it has sort of ruined it for me.

But I wasn’t a fan of breaking dawn the book at all. So I am not going to see the movie or spend the $ to see it.

The twilight books are so horribly written and their content is even worse. Edward dependent bella can’t live without Edward nor can she see her friends when he comes back after dumping her ass. Any sort of independence is wiped out by a mere memory of Edwards face. It’s pathetic and is a horrible example for YA readers who don’t have experience on how to be treated in a romantic relationship. The movies were horrible!! Bad makeup, lines, acting (k stews rapid blinking???) terrible!!

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Except HP taught kids actual values like loyalty, friendship, courage, fighting for what you believe in, etc. All Twilight taught young girl is that it’s sexy for their boyfriend to stalk them and for them to be a doormat.

On that note, I saw this picture the other day and it made me giggle.

I have to admit, these books are my guilty read. I can’t stand the dynamics of Edward and Bella’s relationship (I much prefer Jacob) and I also can’t stand the way that it ended, but I will read them because they are a frivilous romance novel.

My friends all told me I HAD to read the books 4 years ago, so I borrowed the first one.  Honestly, I read a lot of trash, but this was worse than most.  I must say that I am a diehard HP fan, so coming from a series with multiple very strong female characters, Bella wass just not doing it for me.  And nothing ever explained the Bella/Edward attraction.  Like he is hot, she smells tasty? thats all there is?  And then she just mopes around waiting for him like a lump….  ughhhh

EDIT: new favorite quote:  “Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend.” ― Stephen King

PS if anyone wants to watch a good vampire story made for teens, go watch the first season of the vampire diaries.  AWESOME with a strong female lead and actual good plot!!

I’ve never bought the books mainly for my crazy left-wing political reasons, but I had to watch the movies for a film class and they weren’t that bad. They could have been worse and I wouldn’t have necessarily picked them out myself, but I can definitely see the appeal for the emo generation.
