Hordes of Twilight-crazy fans are flocking to the Nokia Plaza in Los Angeles with the hope of catching a glimpse of their favourite stars at the upcoming Eclipse premiere. Multitudes of fans, who have travelled from far and wide, are camping outside the movie theatre four days ahead of Thursday night's world premiere. The fans face several cold nights sleeping on the street and then a possible stampede to the railings before they can even hope to get a close look at their idols. All three of the main stars, Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are expected to attend the premiere.

Those movies are terrible...so boring
"Get a Life!"
But the TV ad said this is the best Twilight movie ever. Considering what I heard about the first ones that is not saying much.
4 days?! Twilighters have no dedication.
no doubt...I love horror movies so I actually subjected myself to the first two movies. The first one was boring and uneventful, so I figured the second one might be better because it had werewolves but nope...no blood, no horror, no nothing. Just endless teen angst with vampires who don’t drink blood and werewolves who don’t kill anything except the vampires but they never actually show it on screen.
I forced myself to watch the first one on dvd just to see what all the hoopla was about. Couldn’t finish it and will never get back that time wasted.
Isn't unemployment a wonderful release?
The first one was partially passable (it did have a cool baseball scene with a great song by Muse and my son says Alice was hot).
The second was one of the worst pieces of drivel ever. My sons synced it to “Lafftrax” and invited all their male friends to laugh about it all night.
My big concern is the movies are emotionally very, very bad for young girls.
The protagonist is a textbook woman who seeks out abusive men. She is constantly getting beaten and hurt by and because of a man who is totally unstable. He deals out emotional whiplash like candy, yet it is all represented as undying love.
When she loses one guy she goes after another who is the same thing. They actually show a woman with slash marks across her face because she got too close to her lover.
The theme is partially that the love of your life should be a dangerous, thrilling, and hard to understand person.
In the second movie she gets thrown into a wall (blood and stitches) by her boyfriend, and later throws herself off a cliff because of depression over his loss.
No slick psychiatrist has written a book or appeared on TV about it yet, but I’ll bet anything there are young girls out there who have been really damaged by this series.
The baseball game was the one really good part about the movie, excellent choice of music. And Alice is far hotter than the pouty skank in the lead role.
A rip off of Emily Bronte.
Thank you. You voiced something I’ve thought about while watching these films but forgot about shortly after.
That happens when I fall asleep during a movie. Anyway, you put it quite well. I think that my thoughts weren’t as developed as your own, but I remember being deeply turned off by the female lead’s neediness.
Even more so by that “neediness” being portrayed as true love to young girls.
The “tragic interlude” wherein she sits in front of that stupid window for *months*, wearing the -same- clothes gagged me.
See if I’d moon over some pretty boy for 6 days, let alone 6 months.
Oh you haven’t even hit the best part of it, how th books themselves are written. The character of Bella has zero personality, and any descriptions of her are vague and general (she has brown hair and she likes to cook). It’s not just laziness on behalf of the author it’s actually a writing technique. I forget the name of it, but it’s where the author makes a character that is basically a blank slate and it makes it easier for the reader to imagine themselves AS that person. Bella is not the main character of Twilight, Edward is.
I won tickets to see the first movie, so I got to see it for free, and I wanted my money back. I kept looking at my watch wondering when it was going to pick up the pace, the only scene that I found entertaining was the baseball part, which they cut short. I found my self cheering for James and hoping against hope that he would be able to get ahold of Bella and kill her to save us from a sequel.
Forget “Team Edward” or “Team Jacob”, I’m on “Team Buffy”. Coincidentally, on you tube, someone did a ten minute story of buffy and edward using clips from twilight and buffy. The ending was EXCELLENT!
Check out True Blood if you have HBO. Lots of blood sucking, bone crunching, body part ripping monster fun. And if you're a girl, the men are all SUPER hot (and grown ups).
There, I fixed it
