Twilight Saga: Why Does It Bother You So Much?

Lately there have been tons of posts slamming the Twilight franchise and how much money it has made and I don't understand WHY?

People have actually been saying that, the world must be over, or that people are too stupid now to watch good films. REALLY?

Why? I want to know why does this bother you?

First of all, the films, just like the books, are great. The stories are solid, the acting is fine, the directions is good, it is what it is, a VAMPIRE STORY. You have to suspend disbelief and get into that world to enjoy it. It isn't reality folks, it is fiction.

As well, why are so many men, especially grown me, threatened by Edward? Last year several of my friends were calling him a pedefile, WTF? Really? I mean, really? How stupid is that? Here is a 17 year old that is in love with a 17 year old. Only thing is, Edward (Robert Pattinson) will never get older.

I just don't understand why people are so upset. They only thing I can think of is that they are jealous that they aren't apart of this amazing and money making franchise.


  1. Upset? No. Meh? Yes. Here is an interesting take on the franchise:

    If you'd like to see what can be done with a movie that has an actual vampire in it, perhaps you'll enjoy "Let The Right One In," the original Swedish film, before they release the American remake. Or, any random episode of Buffy or Angel.

  2. Read the book, loved it! Saw the movie, liked it! Yes, this is fiction, but it is entertaining, and isn't that the whole idea?

  3. I've already seen that film and to me that is like comparing apples to oranges, both fruit, but completely different. I think people are too upset about the Twilight franchise, and what do you mean "actual" vampire. There is no such thing as vampires, or haven't you heard? It's fiction, it's fun.
