How twilight made me think.. :)

I know this may sound a little cheesy but I actually love this film and the books. I feel like I fekt how much edward loved bella and I was glad when he was tthere to save her, I think it made lots of people think to themselves oh I wish I had someone who would risk everything for me like edward does.


I cant wait until new moon comes out.

I hope New moon is just a good as twilight is. (if not, better!)

I dont ever want the twilight story to end. I think I am gunna' miss it! :(

:)

Go twilight and all the twilight saga'

WHo agrees with me here ?:)

Well, I do not necessarily disagree with you - I enjoyed the Twilight movie myself to some degree, I also do not agree with you.
The Twilight series all present unrealistic ideas to teenagers.
1. Edward's appeal comes from the fact that he is "dangerous" (vampire, etc.) yet "safe" (because he saves Bella's life).
However, such a guy is impossible to find in life - he does NOT exist. You can either be dangerous - which requires illegal activity or be safe. But even guys that are "safe" in real life are not "safe" in the romantic sense of saving lives, etc.
2. A healthy romantic relationship does not consist of stalking or the girl giving up everything for the guy.
Edward stalks Bella by watching her sleep, which in the movie is romantic, but in real life would be creepy and illegal. Also, Bella is willing to give up everything to become a vampire, to be with Edward - she assumes they'll be together forever. However, in real life, few relationships last "forever" so it would detrimental to give up goals, hopes and dreams.
3. A healthy parent-child relationship does not consist of the parent completely leaving the child to be for herself.
Bella's father is hardly ever present and always lets her do whatever she wants with little questioning or resistance - this is a teenager's DREAM but still, not usually the reality.
Overall, the Twilight saga builds up expectations of (most but not all) readers/viewers to something that is utterly unrealistic. Therefore, I simply don't agree with any of it, however enjoyable. :)
On top of that, Meyer's writing is horrific - if I wrote like her in a college English class, the teacher would fail me.

Wow. I'm sorry I offended you. ;)
First of all, Stephanie Meyer's Twilight only reached number 5 on the New York Best Sellers List. :)
And second of all, the best seller list rarely does justice to books that have a quality to them. Therefore, just because a book is the most widely sold book of a particular year usually only means that well, people liked it NOT that it was a "good" book.
And yes - Twilight is a good story that can be enjoyed somewhat.
Still, I'm just saying and MANY critics agree - Meyer's books and writing have atrocious flaws and for that reason, I disagree with all the rave it's getting. :)
Great writing AND story telling is Agatha Christie, Ian McEwan, or even Steven King. :) Among other, of course.
Stephanie Meyer - Enjoyable? Yes. Worthy of praise? Not really. :)
