This movie would be great if they would add “Blade”, “Buffy” and some velociraptors.
He probably got some.
Twilight - Making the Star Wars prequels suck less by comparison
Good question about how much self-respect a guy is willing to lose to get some, hee hee.
Every female in my house (4) plus their friends (3) went to the midnight showing. 10 of the theatres in the complex were dedicated to showing this movie, seating around 1500 people. I was told it was packed out.
I’ll wait for the kids to buy the boxed Blu-ray DVD set...
the first two are already out on blu ray
I went to my theater this morning to pick up tickets for tonight’s midnight showing of THE LAST AIRBENDER. The theater was WRAPPED UP with women @ 11AM standing in line in the rain to get tix to ECLIPSE. I’m a huge movie fan but this is one phenomenon I just don’t get. The books are juvenile. The movies are mediocre. But it’s an absolute craze. Go figger.

My wife an I caught Harry Potter fever, but we never stood in line to see it.
But this Twilight thing I just don’t get. I read the first book, and I’m not sure it was much better than the movie.
But whatever. When people don’t have God, they gotta have something.
The movie is PORN for the young teenage girl segment. It diddles the same part of the brain that nudity does to the male brain. At least thats my theory...
it is not porn
“It diddles the same part of the brain that nudity does to the male brain.”
Women get sexually excited by dead people, blood, murder, abusive relationships, suicidal imagery, and wolves?
