So, I'm going to go see this movie with a girl. I can probably tune out 2 hours of this movie, AND Edward basically acts as the foreplay getting the girl already in the mood.

But then she'll be thinking about Edward when you finally bang her.

If heroines are plain and lacking personality it allows the women watching to better project themselves onto said heroine.
Why justify an illegitimate attack with a legitimate response?

So does anyone have a review yet on this movie? I'm curious as to what FES' opinion of it is. An objective one would be preferable.

It might as well be. Look at the CGI, it sucks.

Using your massive resources poorly does not make it an independent film.

New Moon on Rotting Tomatoes.

Rating: 29%

Consensus: "The Twilight Saga's second installment may satisfy hardcore fans of the series, but outsiders are likely to be turned off by its slow pace, relentlessly downcast tone, and excessive length."

Lol. Its gone down 1% since noon. I added my own review giving it the lowest possible rating, even though I've never seen it, just because it was such an awful phenomenon, and the entire cast deserves to die.

On Rotten Tomatoes?  You can do that?  I thought it was a collection of professional critics' opinions.

It has both, you can view professional critics, user reviews, scores for both, or a combined one.

Oh, right, that makes a little more sense.  I was wondering why there weren't a bunch of trolls giving Disaster Movie glowing reviews.

I know grown women who are obsessed with Twilight.. I guess that shouldn't surprise me since there are so many adults obsessed with Harry Potter, but I have a hard time understanding why they'd be interested in all the teen angst. 
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

I don't want to derail the thread into a discussion about Harry Potter, but I don't think that it's entirely geared toward teens the way that Twilight is.  The only Harry Potter book that I honestly think was mainly aimed at children was the first one.  After that one, the writing became more serious to serve the older audience that became interested.  The fifth book and the ones following it, especially, are much darker, more violent, and more mature.  The irony with the last book, in fact, was that J.K. Rowling tried to cram so much action, deep themes, heartfelt emotional scenes, and strong language (I actually chuckled when the word "bitch" was used, so unlike Harry Potter) that the whole thing turned more campy and ridiculous than any other book in the series.

Basically, Harry Potter successfully managed to appeal to many different groups of people.  Twilight (both the books and the movies), on the other hand, is making no such effort.  It's supposed to appeal to the core group of devoted fangirls, no one else.  Why anyone else would ever be attracted to it is beyond me.

You know what I don't understand either, is why do the werewolf and vampire pine over the chick so damn much? She isn't very attractive in my opinion, and she does nothing but blow off the werewolf the whole movie. Plus, does she ever smile? I don't think I saw her do it once, why would you want someone like that in your life.

Because the girl is immaterial. The movie is in no way about her at all. The movie is about being her and having two guys that you blow off habitually come crawling back to you all the time and fight for you. It's a porno. The only fair comparison is that new show on comedy central secret girlfriend where the entire show is shot in first person.

I tried to watch Secret Girlfriend because the commercials were hilarious.. I think they used the only funny parts for the commercials, I just couldn't get into it.  I like raunchy and sometimes sexist humor, so it wasn't that.

Actually, it's second person narrative for that show, not first.  Anyway, that show might have had potential, but it's pretty much a joke.  It's basically softcore POV porn, and the protagonist is really just a silent character, not really "you".  Only an arrogant dick would seriously be able to "identify" with the character.  Although I do think that Parsifal might enjoy it...

Back on topic, you're right about Twilight.  Stephenie Meyer was clearly thinking of herself as Bella when she wrote the books.

Lol, that is how it starts. This one girl felt the exact same way as we all do, then she read one of the books and it completely changed her thinking. I think there is something weird going on in those books, perhaps Stephanie puts some sort of drugs in them.
