My thoughts are why is such a cliche romance so appealing to young people? It's a normal high school romance with the addition of vampire and wolf worlds. I suppose I am a hypocrite since I read the books and have seen both movies. I was curious to see how close they can get to the book. So far I'm not impressed, really. If anything New Moon will be the best movie. I might be nice and say that Eclipse will be a good one too because if I had to choice favorites from the four books it's those two.

I'm just tired of the phenomenon and I swear if Twilight beats any other movie epecially Star Trek for the Favorite Movie at the People's Choice Awards 2010 I will be pissed.

I think the problem lies in the inherent theme of gender roles and altruism. The books and movies propagate codependency, glorify fragility, and condone intentional weakness in girls and women. The stories exalt passive observation and reactions instead of active participation in the events of one’s life and exemplify altruism over the (authorial) autonomy inherent in being a human person.

Aside from "Twilight"'s superficial plots and one-dimensional characters (who are really nothing more than placeholders for teens/tweens to project their psyches onto), I honestly think a lot of people like the dynamic of the relationship between the two protagonists. That scares me if that's what they really idealize and desire.

Damn, you described how I feel in a more intelligent way than I ever could. This "fad" is getting so ridiculously out of hand.

And as for the quote above. I'm with you. I think the series would be better if they hadn't made movies.
