Charmed or infected by „Twilight”?

”Twilight” is movie, which is very popular and has caused a big sensation around the world. Some say that it only appeals to a 15-year-old girl, while others disagree. But no matter what, ”The Twilight Saga: New Moon”, which premiered Nov 20, 2009, raked in 72,7 million[1] on its first day.

Of course, it is obvious, that ”Twilight” is a ”girl’s movie” – romantic, dreamy, filled with love and passion. All this is accompanied by two handsome men – a vampire and a werewolf, who fight for one girl’s heart. Every girl in the world, watching this movie, can imagine herself in the place of this lucky one named Bella. This is the key to success and the reason why thousands of girls around the world worship this movie.

But what do guys think of it? And why do haters hate it so much?

”I went to watch, ”The Twilight Saga: New Moon” with my girlfriend last year” says Jānis, a 24-year-old student. ”These were a very painful two hours in my life, I can say that for sure. I found this movie kind of predictable, lame and a little boring at times. There was almost nothing about this movie which I liked. Well maybe except when it ended” he laughs.

”I watched ‘Twilight’ with my girlfriend at home recently” says Renārs, a 29-year-old bartender. ”The plot I found pretty interesting, but what really disturbed me were the naked, perfectly-shaped bodies of these men, constantly emerging on the screen, which made me feel like a fat, old cripple. Guys, don’t ever let your girlfriends persuade you to watch this movie, no matter what they say. Seriously!” says Renārs.

Alise, a 26-year-old shop assistant is proof of the fact, that not only 15-year-old girls are devoted fans. ”At first, when I watched the first movie, I really couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about. But then, after some time, I decided to watch it again and that’s when the Twilight-mania started. Now I have read all the ‘Twilight’s’ books and watched both movies like a couple hundred times” she says.

Never mind the fact that in November 2009 a second sequel of ‘Twilight’ came out, but the third sequel ”The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” will premiere in the U.S. June 30. Excited?

      Muahaha, Renars, yes. 😀 Well, if that makes you feel better – I foundt it pretty boring as well. As for the bodies – well, that’s a different story, but hey – why would we need artificial, unreal vamps when we have loving fatties??? LOL
