Back two years ago, I wrote a blog post about the Twilight phenomenon and how I didn’t get what the big deal about it is. I also said I would try to finish reading the book and watch the movies to try to get a better understanding. Well I did try to finish the first book, Twilight, and found I still could not get past Bella’s incessant whining and her constant neediness for Edward. I finally watched the movie Twilight and found the film was even worse than the book.
Everything that I hated about the book was there but more so with Kristen Stewart as the whiny Bella. Frankly I did not see what was so great about Pattison’s Edward either. I think Robert Pattinson was a great actor in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire but as a heart throb “vampire” in a poorly written teen romance saga, bad would be an understatement.
I just do not understand how such drivel can pass as entertainment.
