yeah i`ve read a lot of other vampire books that were freakin` awesome.
it`s just Twilight that seems horrible that makes me not want to read it just by hearing about it ._.
you could make the point of Harry Potter as well, but I read a lot of books about magic and well... Harry Potter wasn`t bad. Other people tell me about it and i don`t want to kill myself at least. The last book was a bit pansy but... the whole thing overall wasn`t bad. Movie sucked tho.
I`m not telling you to like Twilight- in fact I couldn`t care less. My point is that I feel it is wrong to stereotype a person of having a lower intellegence just because they have a differnet taste than you do. I hate Harry Potter but I don`t search the internet to tell everyone how much I hate it and then insult those who do. So- you don`t like twilight no one asked to you to watch the movie or read the books- so just move on with your life!
also;@cashcleanerthe ones you just talked about, I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF5 stars for mild retardation, ima go google those to see what they are now.
Interesting theory, but I`m fairly certain people bash it because it`s a terrible piece of trash literature that has made millions when there`s many works that deserve that kind of notoriety but don`t receive it because they aren`t playing on the fantasies of teen girls. I really doubt the "you bash it because you like it" argument has much merit.
1. I am also not a teenager.2. I would also not consider myself stupid. I`m very well-educated, in fact.3. If Twilight was an attempt at horror, I`d laugh myself hoarse.4. I`ve read all four books. I understand the fandom quite well. The movie wasn`t hard to understand at all. And yet... the books were still horrible. Not like it`s hard to understand Stephenie Meyer`s writing anyway; it`s mediocre at best.
PS: You`re taking up just as much time trying to prove your point as I am, though our opinions differ. You claim not to understand why we "bash" Twilight, yet you`re doing the same thing but making an opposite point. Slightly hypocritical if you ask me. And your assessment of us is laughable. Just because I`m opinionated doesn`t mean I`m hiding something. It means, obviously, I hold that opinion. Why would I lie about not liking the book? You don`t seriously think everyone in the world has the same opinion as you, do you?
Also, invest in a spel
Interview with the Vampire - SucksTwilight - SucksBlade Trilogy - RocksJohn Carpenter`s Vampires - Rocks
You`ll note that only the movies/books which have pansy-ass whiny vampires as the main characters are the ones that suck. The ones that have bad-ass bloodsuckers who kill a wagonload of kids and try to take over the world are good.
P.S. I don`t understand why so many people take their out of their day to "bash" something if they hate it so much. I think its a case of " I love it sooo much but i`m ashamed to admit it because of the stereotypes- so I`m going to insult as much as I can so no one will ever figure it out"
people are only hating twilight because it had "good" vampires, what f---ing retards honestly, it wasn`t that bad at all. ITS ONLY GOING TO F---ING CHANGE THE FACE OF VAMPIRES BECAUSE YOUR FLIPPING OUT OVER IT AND MAKING IT POPULAR!!!
and ahead of time@Eichenkatzeand no i dont like that smallville or whatever the hell its called. I`m also not a girl, nor a fan reader.
Most of those movies do suck right now, but Let the Right One In, is really good.
Swedish Vampire movie!
I hate my kind. (teenage girls...ew.)
And you`re a teenage girl who was probably a fan-reader (or at least enjoyed reader) of the Twilight book series. You probably also enjoyed Smallvile, no? (im not insulting you, please don`t take it that way.)
Most people despise Twilight (not so much the books, but the new movie) because of ridiculous it was. Vampires are EVIL. They always have been. THey`re creatures of the night who can shapeshift and turn you into one of them, outcasting you from your current life and world. They`re supposed to be feared.. not flocked all over by 16 year old girls screaming out their hormones.
The movie didn`t offer an alternative view to vampires because there IS NO alternative view. Vampire = Evil + Dark + ScaryNot Vampire = Romantic + Hearthrob + CuteTwilight just ripped a huge gaping hole in one of the better horror genres.. it`s just sick..What next? Werewolves? Zombies? FFS....
Also.. video was hilarious.
I thought this vid was halariouse!!! who was in that? does anyone know?
"...We`re breaking up."
CrimsonChaos, I agree!
Guess what, kiddies: All Twilight characters are cardboard.
I haven`t heard of Twilight untill I saw little tweens girl everywhere lining up to see the movie. Like that one just passed me and the hole I live in..oh well.Okay,I think I might offend some people,but hey it`s IAB;"Horror" movies made in the US these days ,now,AREN`T scary..at ALL. Some are aswesome,some are boring and so on and so on,but hardly ever scary
for knowing cabinet of caligari... epicness is all i can say, i don`t know anyone that`s even heard of it.
yeah they weren`t on the edge of your seat scary, but to be honest, compared to the poo nowadays? i don`t just at anything. my heart rate probably sinks when something pops out because i see it coming so early in the scene. but some of those old expressionist films are definitely where it`s at.
--and in response to Elvieseventysomething, look. Imagine a scenario where you bought a puppy. It was a girl puppy. You named it Chestnut. You love the puppy all your life, and are best friends with it. At around the dog`s 7th birthday, something odd happens. It unexpectedly grows a pair of balls that it drags around on the floor. It barks in a low scruffy gravelly voice, and eats your food.
Now, invert that, and with vampires, and you have this situation. They cut the balls off of vampires. The vampires that are known and loved.
"I love how 90% of everyone here hates Twilight."i love how 90% of all statistics... you`ve heard the story.
yeah i hate it don`t get me wrong.
WTF HAPPENED TO NOSFERATU? CABINET OF KALIGARI? BRAM STOKER? THE GOLEM? all those old horror movies, that had you scared out of your seat, or otherwise in awe at the awesomeness of the movie
Coming from someone who is an extreme cult movie buff having seen vampires in the forms of Vampyros Lesbos, Nosferatu, Vampyre, among other movies, you can`t compare Twilight to any of them. I`ve read Anne Rice and wasn`t particularly impressed with her writing. Interview With A Vampire was an entertaining movie, but the annoying part about all of this is that everyone hates something because it`s popular and takes an elitist tone when complaining about it, adding references to old time vampiric forms of entertainment.
Yea, that`s all cool but Twilight had something all its own and I enjoyed it as well as the books. Compared to Nosferatu, of course you wouldn`t like it. Completely different genre. Before you criticize something determine whether or not it`s out of your element. Is it really that awesome as teenage girls claim it to be? No. But finally, something makes angsty teenage cutters happy so just leave them alone. At least they`re rea
I`m sick of everyone drooling over it. You would think they`d get over it pretty quickly... The books themselves aren`t particularly good, and they send young women horrible messages about what kind of things are acceptable to do when you are in love and what they are expected to behave like.
Dracula, on the other hand, is pretty rockin.
But when Twilight became so huge and teen girls started claiming it to be the best thing ever written and vampires turned into a Hot Topic trend, then I got pissed.
Twilight vampires- they`re like declawed kittens...
i mean, really, bring back real Nosferatu like Dracula, the sorta vamp that sports pure kickass! i mean, really, the old school vamps, even the ones that came out about 3 years ago, actually, from Van Helsing movie to before, were awesome, now they just suck.
i conclude this rant with this, i used to want to become a Nosferatu (yes, i know they aren`t real, but bear with me), but now, i would rather be a zombie, a I am a pretty pretty little girlING ZOMBIE!!!
I don`t say this a lot, but.... that`s kinda gay.
But I like sparkly things, so bring on the sparkly vampires. :D (Nvm the sparkly acne in the movie. Yuck.)
Eh. It could be worse I guess. I`m just a little bit sad that so many girls will base their dream relationship on this `perfect` stereotypical (but kind of abusive) vampire.
I for one don`t believe it as they can`t even stay up at night after 9.
Meyer is a crazy non-nice individual. The end.
Besides, the only forbidden vampire romance anybody should devote any time to is Buffy and Angel. The `90s had it right.
I read only a few pages of Twilight. I am not a romance novel type…ok-at least not THIS type. I am very picky about romance novels.
Then, I went to wiki…I gaged. Seriously…just no.
Darren Shan had a good series there. I liked him.
Fevre Dream by George R R Martin I probably the beast vampire novel I think.
twillight wasnt created for the reason of story telling it was created to make the emofag generation moist at the thought that a bad boy could have feelings and take them away from the misery that is there sad life of sitting around drinking vampires WERE awesome but now they couldnt get any lamer
female 13-17...i rest my case
also, i like the darren shan vampires the best
Just because they changed the stereotypical blood sucking, scary vampires everyone is like ohhh now vampires suck because of Twilight. Just because they made them different now doesn`t mean they suck! I absolutely loved the movie and all of the books :)))))))) And I find the vampires from Twilight much more interesting then dracula and all that crap.. thank you very much :)
By the way, never read the books, and i wont, i just dont think id enjoy them persay.
The first book was a few hundred pages of (boring) character development with a random plot tagged onto the end. The second made me cry because of the parts of my brain that died while reading it. The series claims to be about true love, but all I see is a very obsessive and slightly abusive relationship. If all teen girls think that the Twilight series portrays a good relationship, then they have another thing coming. Just because someone leaves you doesn`t mean you should go kill yourself. The whole thing is ridiculous.
Besides, those four books are a good example of every single stupid vampire cliche out there. Seriously, you could see the plots from a mile away. Why bother reading half of it, when you already know what`s gonna happen.
I don`t get all the hype.
... This is why I don`t review books for a living. But seriously, people should love/hate/sort of like/dislike stuff because they want to. I really hope there aren`t people out there who hate Twilight because some website told them too. Ick...
Anyway, I like it. What does this have to do with it?
And by the way this video was hilarious.
A good vampire movie is "let the right one in" and that will make next to nothing.
Wait, he came on the screen?
Goddamn it, and I thought this was just an innocent little stupid teenage girl movie, and it`s really a porno?!?!?
I killed them. Then bathed in their blood.I did what those pussy vampires are supposed to be doing.You`re WELCOME.:D
They all annoyingly laughed too at intervals in the movie. It was disturbing.
...and then you have the uber-fangirls who just scare the hell out of you. hell, i only like the books, im not going to go have a joygasm over them.
And Edward Cullen? Nah, any real woman wants Edward Hyde or Edward Blake. *coughs*
f(OMG) as G -> oo
does that count?
I`ve read Twilight and loved it for a month then read all the "haters" stuff on the internet, and thought, "Hey, Twilight really does suck!" I went to the movie on Friday night just to make fun of all the fangirls. I swear every girl was having a twigasm whenever the guy who plays Edward came on the screen.
Also it really creeps me out. My dad`s name is Edward so here a lot of girls say Edward is hot is very frigtening. I keep getting images of my dad and girls flirting with him. I`m scarred for life now.
Although this video was quite amusing, I laughed through most of it. I hope there will be more.
