It's always like that. I blame Anne Rice for starting this trend of 'Vampirism is OMG Cool!'.

XD Everything is better with RiffTrax, I even watch them for movies I love, like the LotR ones.

And W.I.N.X., I lol'd pretty hard whenever it happened, too XD

Rifftrax can make just about anything better. As for my opinion on Twilight, I've never read it, and thus I am willing to believe it is the best series of books ever printed. I am willing to believe the characters are excellently done and as physically desirable as everyone says they are. But for heaven's sake, get the fanpires out of my face and off of Facebook. I actually considered going to watch Twilight in theaters just to laugh at the stupid fangirls who would inevitably scream whenever Edward was onscreen. He might as well just quote the Beatles and say he's bigger than God. I don't know what goes on in those books, and I'm perfectly fine with that. Please move the fangirls to Pluto.

Ok, I wish to point out my dislike of those who labeled Twilight a "Saga". It is a series people! NOT a Saga. A saga is something that takes place over two or more generations(i.e. Star Wars). But since the main character is always Bella, it is NOT cross generational, therefore not a Saga.

This is one of many misuses of the English language the series has...

That's the message I've tried (and failed) to get across to my fanpire friends for so long... -.-"

Me to. A lot of my irritation would be dissapated if they just named it what it was: A love-story. And not a legendary one, just one.

The problem is that they can't seem to accept the fact that people have opinions different from theirs. I mean, I kind of do like Twilight. It's okay to read when you're bored. It's just that I think it doesn't deserve half the praise it's getting. It's not even close to being that good. However, if I try to tell my friends that, they bite my head off. =P

And Stef stole most of the main plit from the Sookie Stackhouse series, which most people don't realize. It features a telepathic human, who falls in love with a vampire (Who she can not read the mind of). There is even a Jacob in the series. Her boss at the bar she works at is a shape shifter. (Sound familiar??)

I know the feeling. I used to think the series was at least entertaining, but now I just get mad at it after watching and reading True Blood. (I highly suggest reading it, the first novel is called Dead Until Dark, and that way i have people to talk to about it!) Also, i would read it, i give a warning out to younger people here, the television series is rated M for Mature.

To what I think, the movie was awesome!
It was kinda scary at one part when Bella was bleeding to death, and I fear blood.... XD
The book was good too. :)
But i'm not too obsessed with Twilight nor i'm not a too much of a hater.
I'm kind of like the "neutral" twilight fan. :)
And i'm proud! I dont like talking about it alot, nor i'd hate to not talk about it
So yah...

Really, i can see how you can find the series entertaining, but can you really admit it was an awesome movie? Please state the reasons why you think it was so good, because i have a lot of reasons why it was bad.

1. No dialogue between characters!
2. Way to close up close ups...
3. The lack of acting skills, (Except the guy who played carlisle and Charlie)
4. Bella having NO personality
5. cheesy music sequences
6. rotating camera making me dizzy
7. The overall message of the story. (Come on people Bella only loves Edward because he doesn't eat her! that's not love, that's abuse)
8. Stefanie Meyers random use of words that she probably looked up on dictionary.coms word of the day list.
9. Not real Vampires!

thats my list for now, im sure theres more though.

p.s. I know i have been saying this alot, but Read the true blood series. It is well worth it, and will make you realize Twilight for what it really is!


I thought of another

10. People calling it saga when it is NOT.

I remember when I was watching the Twilight riff at my aunt's house, and Carlisle first came on, my aunt was like "Carlisle needs to find some some foundation that matches his neck." XD You could see where his pale makeup started.

MY fav riffed scene is probably the resturant scene, "I think its your bubbly personality, but im not sure"

XD I loved that one, too. But I also loved when Edward was running and carrying Bella and they started humming the Benny Hill theme.
