Twilight (yeah, I know...)

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by runmikeyrun, Nov 17, 2012.

  1. For a series that I really wanted to hate, it actually wasn't that bad. It's not something that I would have seen without a date (I missed seeing Red Fang to see Breaking Wind errr.. Dawn part 2) but all in all it wasn't terrible. Yeah it's not a horror movie, yeah the characters have 0 emotion, and yeah the CGI was terrible, but was it worth 10 bucks? I suppose.

    I think the best part of the experience was all the Twilight moms screaming stuff when good guys got killed lol.
  2. Call me a cheap***, but no movie is worth that kind of money. I wait for the DVD to come out, then wait until I can get the DVD for a reasonable price.

    Pretty much this.

    You missed out on a Red Fang show to see a Twilight movie? Dude, I don't care how hot she was, man-card NOW!

    I made it through about 10 minutes of the first one. The acting was so terrible and cheesy that I couldn't watch it. Don't care at all to continue with the series.
  6. I fell into the GF trap of "lets go see it!". The after show was worth it imo :cool:

    Seriously though, we both agreed, this series is a major cash cow. Each film is drawn out and nothing that couldn't be condensed to 30 minutes could be worth the 1hr plus film :meh:

    I heard the new Lincoln movie is a real hit in the theater. A bit of a mind blower.......

    Not if he got some.

  11. Saw Twilight with a friend yesterday! That is one funny a** movie! I'd say it was worth the $10 but only because I was able to sit there and yuck it up with a friend for an hour and a half or so. It's pretty hilarious how Edward and Bella are the least compelling characters in the entire movie. Now, that said, I think I love Robert Pattinson (this it just too great: http://jezebel.com/5961320/robert-pattinson-is-the-biggest-twilight-hater-of-all) as a person and I hope that outside of Twilight he's actually a decent actor. Lawd knows, Kristen Stewart ain't.

    Breaking Dawn Part 2 is, without question, a crap movie, but I got way more enjoyment out of it than I ever thought possible. I'd be willing to bet that it's considerably better than the previous installments as well.

    Wow Kwesi, that interview collage video gave me new respect for him, nice.

    I'll admit, my only other knowledge of Mr. Patterson was in the Harry Potter movie, and I actually thought him quite good in that...and before you cry foul and revoke my mancard for that, it was a bonding thing with my daughter, and actually was pretty decent standalone fantasy in its own right, unlike the Twilight drek.

    So... it's true? :bag:
