Finally Watched Twilight

I was finally talked into watching Twilight last night. I’ve been reluctant, because I’ve seen enough of it to know that it’s all dreck, but I do believe in giving everything its fair shake. It wasn’t right for me to hate this “phenomenon” without actually watching the movie. And besides, I’m writing a book based upon vampires myself. It’d be hypocritical of me to dismiss Twilight without a proper examination.
Okay. I watched it. Or, more specifically, as I wrote on Facebook;
I can say with some authority that “Twilight” sucks the big one. I understand why people like it, because it’s basically a re-telling of the old Prince and the Princess story, but it’s a romance novel with the most benign vampires I have ever seen, with all the dark and scary bits removed. The dialog was horrible. The premise was absurd. And the plot was non-existent. Just further proof that you can polish a turd and, with the right marketing, make millions from people who are hungry for mainstream banality. Bleh. 🙂
I stand by that assessment. *yawn*
By the way, if you’re interested in a vampire who’s a little more complex, you’re always welcomed to introduce yourself to Visili Kruvoi.
