    What ever happend to proper vampires? (like the blade trilogy for example - and the like)

    Vampires that sparkle in sunlight... Not really what I look for in a vampire movie/story

    I did get dragged to see the first twilight movie though... I have a problem saying no and it gets me into situations like that haha

    I just have to say this: chuck twilight (doesnt deserve a capital letter ) into the toilet and read some good material! Twilight is poorly written, has no plot whatsoever (apart from Bella and Edward declaring their love for eachother) and TBH... neither of the characters have defining personalities. Bella is; an airhead, needs someone to depend on 24/7, has no personality (guess it clashes with airhead lol). Edward is; controlling, abusive, irrational.

    And where the HELL is the character developement? I agree with AGB 110% on her wondering why twilight was accepted so easily into society.

    Though I must say... every little girl wants a prince who can protect her, who can look after her... And really, Meyer did just that. Gave every little girl her dream. A poorly written, plot-less version, but a version nonetheless.

    Disagree? Tell me what you think.

    I'm thinking the same thing? Isn't the main male character a stereo typical, chauvinistic, arrogant and selfish character?? (SIL thinks he is, I only have her opinion to go on)

    Maybe physically, but in turn that can cause some pretty damaging self esteem issues too...

    I have to agree. I WOULD NOT want a boyfriend like that. It causes TERRIBLE self esteem issues, I've read a couple of stories of how guys were dumped by their girlfriends because they 'weren't as good as Edward".

    The guys are better off IMO and the girls will be treated the same way eventually... It's always fun to watch them fall off their high horses too

    Yea. Twilight is similar to Disney, really. They both promote that a man has to be strong, handsome, a prince (well in Disney's case) and always has to save the day. While the woman is a damsel in distress. It brings back the women's movement by 50 years. *shakes head*
