Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

I absolutely loved the books, i've read them all over 15 times.  But Twilight was the worst book to movie transition.  What do you think???

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

you read them over 15 times? why? I also read the entire series unfortunately and i'm just really curious as to why you love it so much. Is it because maybe edward cullen is an obsessive stalker who can't stand to give the girl privacy? Oh maybe the relationship she has with the psycho werewolf who demands for her company? Or maybe it's the fact the Bella is an idiot and some how with all the stupid decisions she makes still ends up dead yet happy. Please just enlighten me.

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

[ Edited ]

i apologise if anything i say is hurtful. i just really cant stand that all of these people are obsessed with twilight and i dont understand it either. i would love nothing more than to bash anything twilight. i am anti-twilight. i think that the books are terribly written, they have a dull storyline a billion plot holes. and bella, the main character has only two emotions confused and depressed. and i dont like kristen stewert who plays bella in the movie, she always has this perpetual [b* t *h] face. and robert pattinson is so NOT hot. i saw the first movie and thought it was terrible. then when it came out on video i  thought hey ill rent it and watch it again because it cant be that bad. but then i stayed up late and alone and put it on and was like oh wow its worse than i remember. its so cheasy. they try to be so serious and then kristen stewert does that annoying as heck lip biting thing that she does in EVERY movie and i just started CRACKING UP!

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

no, i think the harry potter and the half blood prince is the worst. david yates ruined the movie. Twilight isn't bad.

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

Have we seriously not learned our lesson here people?  You start ANY Twilight bashing thread, movie or book, or characters, whatever... SOMEONE is going to get pissed off.  As much as I loathe anything Twilight I'm not going to say anything and I encourage to keep this thread simply discussing the actors in the movie or likes and dislikes on how they achieved certain aspects i.e. the sparkling.  Just please keep the bashing to a minimum.  I'm so sick of Twi-fights.

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

Omg thank you kyleigh.  All of you need to just get over it.  If people on here just so happen to have opposing views on Twilight, so be it.  There's absolutely nothing either party can say or do to change it.

Oh, and as for my view on the Twilight movie, i thought it was a terrible rendition of the book, but that's not to say that the book itself was much better.

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

Yeah I mean I understand some of you are new users  so ill just let you know beforehand , OK so personally yes I'm sure we all know by now the movies suck big time, but lets just leave it at that because Kay has a point such threads have been made so many times that we have seriously lost count, all it takes it for a twilight obsessed fan to flip and hey we had a silly argument that last forever so I agree keep it on the actors and yeah Robert and Kristen can't act for **bleep** :smileyhappy:

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

Okay I am sry for what I am about to say. The Twilight movies SUCKED! The books were poorly written and they characters were a bore. The story just went on and on about how great love was and then they lost love and then gained it again. B-O-R-I-N-G! And srsly they just made Bella sound like a Slut and how she got married and then got pregant a week later??? Smart move. And I cant even comment on the movies that's how bad they were. It is just a big waste of time to go see them. I'm so not going to either Eclipse or Breaking Dawn because I just know it's going to be bad. I mean couldnt they make it seem like it was a little real and I'm the type of person that LOVES vampires :smileysad:. I just think people are obsessed now because everyone else is. I just hope people start really thinking about how stupid these books and movies really are.

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

I dont think the title of this board is adequate, B&N bookclubs are supposed to be healthy disccusions and are not meant to bash anything , since we must all respect everyones tastes whether in movies or in books, so even though I may not like Twilight books or movies I dont go around boards bashing peoples likes, Its all about respect and tolerance.

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

not bashing the people who like twilight. im just voicing my opinion on the topic. and i dissagree, i think this book club is for people to talk about books. whether they like them or not. and to talk about those opinions.

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

Yeah I totally agree its_tiffani_LO. Everyone have there opinion on any topic they want and they can say whatever they like on any topic whenever they want. Just like me - people should express anyway they want to on anything they want to. This is a free site and people can express what the are feeling about any books, movies, music, or any topic they want.

Re: Anyone want to bash the Twilight Movie????

Ugh.  Okay so as much as I agree with both sides about both respecting other peoples opinions, and having the right to express your own, remember freedom of speech goes only as far as to when your encroaching on someone else's freedom.  But anywho that's not my point.  My point is that bashing anything Twilight will come back to bite you in the ass.  End of story.  Tadaa.

Percy Jackson?  Is that a good series?  I might actually have to read them now.  Movie looks decent. Though I don't have high hopes.
