Default Twilight

Ok so I went to see Twilight today with the family as they wanted to see it due to hearing raving reviews of the books and the movie from fans of the books. All I can really say about the movie was that it was

ASS!!!!

Sweet Jesus what an awful fucking movie. I can't even begin to list the shit they delivered to audiences with this horrible flick since there is so much. Sure it is about vampires but it really isn't. For starters, they took just about EVERYTHING vampiric right out of the story (sunlight makes them sparkley, they don't sleep ever, NO TEETH (w t f), etc, but then they made it worse by spending, I shit you not, two thirds of the movie on the intro to the characters and how the chick and the vamp boy fall in love. The super small amount of action the movie had were all in the last 5-10 minutes of the movie and really amounted to nothing, the dialogue was absolutely, stunningly, cringe worthy ('you are like my own personal heroin' - seriously, that's the best a 90 year old vamp can come up with trying to seduce a chick???), the list goes on.

Do yourselves a favour and avoid this one like the fucking plague.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I didn't actually see the movie, but I was in the same room as someone who was watching it (totally legally and all ;)) and merely hearing it made me decide that I never, ever want to waste my time with that horrid piece of crap. Ever. I'll burn every Twilight book I come across from here forward.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for the vindication! At my university, there are so many girls that are obsessed with it that I want to gouge my eyes out to avoid seeing it. But according to Katie, that's not enough! Now the ears have to go, too!

Or we could just get all copies (ALL COPIES) of Twilight, some sticks, marshmallows and have ourselves a Heresy bonfire and marshmallow roast. Who's with me?!

That which doesn't kill me has made a tactical mistake.

I dunno... I wouldn't want to defile perfectly good marshmellows with flames from such a dirty source.

The thing is that the movie was so bad that now all things Twilight related must burn.

(What good is a vampire movie with no action?)
