Topic: Twilight- Any Fans?
Subject: wowR


Ryst actually takes the words out of my mouth there.

I don't hate Twilight, I haven't read or seen it to know if I hate it, I just have no interest in it.

Also, I'm not a grown up. So uh...ha?

Topic: Twilight- Any Fans?
Subject: Truth


It really was a fairly poor attempt to take vampires into a mainstream goth stereotype. Making powerful, bloodsucking, peasant murdering creatures into passive sex idols just doesn't seem right to me.

Topic: Twilight- Any Fans?
Subject: Haha


If I must say...I hit up Bolt today. Mostly against my will but I can't say it was "bad". The over sexualisation of Vampires in Twilight is aimed at one specific market, and it's designed perfectly to hit it. It's not the same as Harry Potter that was more designed for all sorts of fantasy lovers (although personally I feel the movies are a bit poor, did read the books though) where the "sexy, shiny vampires" of Twilight which go about seducing the High School girl and showing her a world of wonder, love and bedazzlement is more of a niche market, albeit a very large well paying niche market.

"Sexy" vampires are a creation of the latest generation of authors bringing more specialised areas of literature mainstream. You might hear people say "They liked vampires before they were cool" and I lament the overwhelming bandwagoning of people onto things I used to like until they're changed too much or tainted to the point where I can't really enjoy them anymore.

Example: When I was three, my parents bought me a casette tape of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" for my birthday (which isn't far before Christmas). Now it was the first tape I ever owned, and I watched it repeatedly and endlessly. I liked the characters, the story and the way it all went together. Nowadays, with the ever emerging scourge of Hot Topic (DAMN YOU HOT TOPIC!!!!) The Nightmare Before Christmas is a staple on favorite movie lists for people who identify with it on a different level, taking it as some sort of goth/emo scripture of a black christmas and not the charming story of the Pumpking King who gets so tired of the same old Halloween and tries his hand at Christmas only to learn that sometimes is best to let Santa take care of it and find the joy in what he does. Nowadays if I tell people it's my favorite movie and aren't wearing eyeliner and a black hoodie people look at me like I'm lying.

Suffice to say Twilight feels that way to me about Vampires. A few years back I watched "Queen of the Damned" thinking it'd be a vampire killing people flick (Like "30 Days of Night" which I enjoyed) instead it was a movie about a vampire starting a goth rock band and lots of computer generated matrix fighting. But apparently it was a hit and sexy vampires continued. Other than 30 days of night there hasn't been what I'd consider a "Vampire Movie" around for a while, and to be quite honest it's taking a lot of enjoyment out of the term for me.

I've refrained from posting here because really everyone's entitled to opinions, and some of you probably really do enjoy it. I simply don't. And now I shall get back to work.
