A Word About The Twilight Movie

I'm a big fan of vampires. They've been creeping me out since childhood. And, being a girl, I also enjoy glittery sparkling things. However....







VAMPIRES SHOULD NOT SPARKLE!


WTF? What kind of Sesame Street crap is this? Vampires are supposed to be scary and sexy and tragic. They do not glitter like My Little Pony dolls. Geez! Talk about two great tastes that taste so WRONG together.

You know, I flipped through the Twilight book when it became so huge just to see what the deal was. And I couldn't believe it. Vegetarian vampires that sparkle like diamonds in the sunlight??? Really? Puh-lease.

My inner goth girl was filled with disdain so I never read the series.

That said, I am getting ready to go see this shitfest in a few minutes. Yeah, my inner goth girl is sneering and kicking me with her pointy black boots but she'll just have to suffer. The group I'm going with are all dying to see this tale of twinkling fiends, so Twilight it is!

I'm looking forward to it actually. Movie popcorn always tastes so much better than the microwave stuff.

Supposedly women are enjoying this movie because the guy has so much restraint - that the kiss becomes just totally awesome.

I'll pass until Jebus's Voice on Earth, aka, The Pope give it the thumbs up.

"My Little Vampire" -- you can brush his fangs!

yeah, i'm more into the nosferatu kind of vampyre. but i am a sucker (haha!) for suggestive selling, b/c i see that book everywhere and i feel like i need to read it.

I read the Twilight books. They were ok. I like Stoker's vampire stuff better. No movie ever does a book justice.

I saw 1/2 of Twilight today.
Le sigh- my friend was sick and we had to leave half way through.
I enjoyed the books, but agree it's a completely different way of looking at vampires...

My favorite vamp movie is Coppola's Dracula. Well, except for Keanu Reeves being in it, which is a horror unto itself.

Bill- it could have been nice, I guess, but with all the makeup he was wearing it seemed more like he was hesitant to kiss her because it might smear his lipstick.

Wendy- you should make a necklace of a sparkling vampire fang. I'd buy it.

Fashion- it sems to be a very traditional romance in the bad boy/innocent young waif school.

Sweet Cheeks- very true. Books are always better.

Love that avatar!

Princess- the first hour was a bit like an episode of My So Called Life and the second hour was a bit like Buffy the Vampire Slayer only the heroine did no ass kicking of her own. Yes, I watch too much TV.

Hope your friend is okay.

XL- I like that one too. Keanu is such sweet, sweet eye candy but I agree, his acting ruins most movies.

I hated this book with a passion I usually save for the Oakland Raiders and George Bush. Vampire stories need less lovey dovey and more action. Even love stories need conflict.

Mr. Poopie said...

Vegetarian vampires? Yeah, then I found out they don't have fangs either. What kind of fucked up shit is this? Vampires with no fangs? I refuse to watch.

I saw it and did my own review....hated it...
I am off now to find some hardcore vampire porn to get the taste of this movie out of my mouth!

Krissyface said...

I just started reading it.

Eh.

It's not Harry Potter but it's a nice thing to crawl into bed with at the end of the day.

Krissyface said...

Also, I think I was biased against the book from the start because I worked at Little Brown when it came out and found out that Stephenie Meyer was mormon. I know that sounds terribly predjudiced but I couldn't imagine a good mormon girl writing a seductive vampire novel, ya know?

Prunella Jones said...

Diane- yeah I agree, that's why I didn't read them.

Mr. Poop- I know! How are they supposed to suck blood? I don't get it.

Honk- loved your review!

Krissy- I agree, Mormons arem't exactly known for their passion. Which is why the movie had all the heat of a sappy Harlequin Romance. Also, wouldn't a 108 year old virgin have a lot of issues?
