There's no vote for "Hate the franchise, hate the fans and want them all to fall into a well and die." It's the most insipid, watered-down, tweeny-drama crap that I can recall. I can remember a time when vampires and werewolves were things to avoid and hope you never had to deal with.

what i dont get is they have taken all the draw backs out of being a vampire so wtf do they have to be whiney about.

Haven't read the books, but I have seen the first movie, and that was the worst waste of 2 hours I could possibly think of.
How could you make it through the full 2 hours? Were you forced?

I did not make it past the first 15 minutes, some teenage girl droning on and on and then this guy gets out of a truck, and I switched it off...

Other than, you know, Dracula who could go out in daylight in Bram Stoker's book.

again not like Bram Stoker's Dracula who did age, but his aging was reversed when he drank blood.

They do have to drink blood, it just doesn't have to be human blood.
Plus that's not exactly a rare phenomenon, both Anne Rice's vampires and the vampires of the Warhammer world need to drink less and less blood as they age to the point that, at a certain age, they're often going for years between feedings (if they so desire).

Right I voted No.

A) I have no particular problem with the films, not their greatest fan but there's a lot worse out there and I don't see the point of jumping on a hate bandwagon just because.
B) The rabid haters are as bad as, if not worse, than Twihards- no wish to be associated with those mouth breathers.

It's basically a female sex-fantasy. And, as far as sex-fantasies go, there are far, *far* worse.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

there are far better ones too, the first movie was dire, my wife had read a few of the books and shes says they are also dire,personally the issue i have with it is how popular it became, it amazes me how something so poor can get such a huge following??? it beggars belief.
there are so many good vampire movies and even the not so good ones are better than twilight, its just a trashy teen romance with some very random poor supernatural elements shoe horned in to make it different from the pack.

It's because people like shit. Simple as that. The only quality it needs is dumbing it down enough for the usual viewerbase. I recall that the author is a mormon, and that explains a lot of that.

Whoah there, let's not start bashing religions because one person wrote a shitty book, shall we?

People are idiots. Plain and simple.
