"That is a pretty narrow minded opinion to think that just because someone has a different opinion than you, that there life must be boring. I would suggest reading the book, they are always better than the movie."
To all those fans of "Twilight," I again ask why do you like the movie? Why do you like the book? Of course books are usually better than movies, however, the movie that I watched had no substance, no real plot, no real character development, nothing but a "love-at-first-sight" gag me with a spoon-I can't live without you from the moment I smelled your scent-I'd die if you ever left my sight for more than a day, blah, blah, blah, all under the "new" guise of vampire-ism. I can't imagine that there was a deeper level to the book, perhaps a more intriguing read than watching the movie, but still....
I get that 14 year-olds would totally and absolutely heart this movie. Generally, we have a weird view of romantic love when we're teenagers, and I do kinda/sorta get that appeal.
And I will admit, perhaps I was a little judgmental towards young mothers who can't get enough of "Twilight" when I posed the statement/question, "Is your life really that boring?" But I'm still kind of wondering. Do you view this movie as an escape from your life? Is the romantic dynamic--eh hem cough cough, sorry I think I just threw up a little in my mouth--what makes this movie way cool?
Here's your chance. Please defend your opinion. What is the appeal of either the book or movie, because I certainly don't get it. I'm not usually accused of being narrow-minded, so do, please do, expand the narrow channels of my mind. Enlighten me. Make me a believer.
Because even though this is still my opinion, Hylan said the preview for the next movie actually looks pretty good,
CONVINCE ME! And don't just tell me to read the book(s)--I have better literature to read!!!! Tell me why you love "Twilight" so dang much.
