So in the interests of staying up to date on all things pop culture I recently borrowed the first Twilight movie from the library. I have never really been big on vampires. Especially since they have been turned into these ridiculous sex symbols. Someday someone will have to explain to me what is so sexy about being killed by having all the blood in your body drained through your neck. I like my vampires to be real villains, in others words I think the movie Blade got it right.
None the less, i decided to give twilight a chance. To be blunt, i think it's pretty silly stuff and i don't see what the big deal is. I am not going to say it's the worst movie i have ever seen (That title still belongs to "The never ending story"). But i don't see why it has caught on in the way that it did. The teen angst is at a boiling point for the whole movie. I have been out of my teens for a while now and in a few weeks my 20's will be coming to an end so maybe I am just to old to "get it". I just don't see why the main characters fell in love so quickly. It's like they met and 2 seconds later the were saying they could not live with out one an another. And the guy who is supposed to be a heart throb? Like what the fuck? There is no way to say this without sounding sexist be he is a pussy period.
Overall, i will still watch the equals when I can get them from the library but that's as far as it goes. Reading the books is out of the question. I am hoping that they get better but i have little hope.
