I totally get Twilight

So I'm a little behind with the Twilight thing.  I have to admit, I hadn't even heard about it until the first movie opened last year.  Suddenly all of my friends were up all night reading the entire series before heading to the movies and claiming "Team Edward" or "Team Jake".

This weekend, my sister and I reverted to our 13 and 14 year old selves and read both Twilight and New Moon.  Then proceeded to watch both movies.

I totally get it.  This series was so written for the teenage me.  To love the boy that is soooooo wrong for me and of course our love is greater than any other love before.  Check!

The movies..... not so much.  I was shocked to discover the first movie was written and directed by a woman.  Where's the love?  Oh and I really think Robert Pattinson is a nice guy and I so want to like him.  But he needs a few acting lessons.  Okay my sister says it is not him but bad directing.  Either way, I'm going to need whomever is writing, directing, staring in Twilight 3 - to READ the book and then interview a bunch of teenage girls to find out why we they love it so.


  1. I wished I had a 12 year-old with me when I went to see the movie this weekend - it was such a guilty pleasure, but I felt like a complete dork (and old!) in the theater by myself. And the squealing? I wanted to join in, but I was too self conscious!

  2. I totally understand. There was a moment in the theater when all of the girls sighed loudly and I couldn't help but laugh. That little Jacob is a cutie. LOL

  3. I'm with you about needing the director to actually read the books and then maybe interview some fans. Poor Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart...they both so need acting lessons. I swear if they get all shakey while they're with each other in the next movie I'm going to burn down the movie theater...Or maybe just be really mad :)
