DreamingForever wrote:I don't hate Twilight. At the time of it's release everyone was obsessed with Twilight and Twilight was literally all anyone talked about. Eventually I decided to read the series for myself, I managed to read the whole series but I didn't understand at all what all the fuss was really about and decided never to read it again. Not to mention that when I watched Up I actually cried at the first part and at the end as well! Such a sweet movie!

I swear my eye twitched when I read that. I don't know about it's grammatical legitimacy in American English, but it just sounded so painfully horrible.
Maybe part of the reason critics deplore these movies is not only because they are so unfamiliar with kooky heterosexual female fantasies but also because they don’t really like what these fantasies say about men.
She also has solidified my anti-twilight opinion by prooving that Stephanie Myer put no research what so ever into what she was writing and completely tore apart what a vampire and a werewolf is. Also, she pointed out that Bella is a very weak and bland, unfinished character, and was created so that any girl can slip themselves into her slot.
