Ten Reasons Why I Hate The Twilight Saga
by Nicholas Robinson
Hey guys, this is my first real article since I’ve been back (No it is not the big one I talked about in my last post, you still have to wait a bit) and I hope you enjoy it. In commemoration of the third movie in The Twilight Saga, Eclipse, coming out this week, I have written an articles on ten reasons on why I hate the movies. Well, here we go. (BTW, This is not in any particular order because they are all equal reasons to hate the movies)
1. Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner
A lot of women (and also, strangely, men) have been fawning over these two actors ever since the first Twilight Movie came out in 2008. Now I can tell you that most of my friends who read and watch Twilight concur that they are NOT that hot. Now, my point here is, take away the alleged hotness from these two so-called actors and all you get are shitty actors. Honestly, I have had no past experience with Taylor Lautner and so I will call him shitty until I see otherwise. Robert Pattinson has confirmed my opinion of him as a shitty actor ever since I saw him ruin the wonderfully charming and kind yet pretty Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by just being a pretty boy and saying what the director told him to. I have no use for these actors in any project anywhere.
2. Kristen Stewart
This girl, though she has been in some impressive movies like Adventureland, Jumper and Into the Wild, is no more than a shitty actress. In both the Twilight movies, she portrays Bella as an emotionless teenager. The most emotion you got from her performance was in New Moon where she portrays extreme depression as screams of torture. I really have no more to add except that if you see a movie with this “actress” in it, be very wary of how good it might actually be.
3. Vampires Glitter in Sunlight
Now we all know that in every single vampire story, they are unable to go out in the sunlight because the UV radiation burns their bodies. However, in this “fresh” take on vampires, when characters such as Edward Cullen walk out into the sunlight, their skin glitters like diamonds (presumably because their skin is made of some special form of diamond s it is as hard as diamond). This is just absolute and utter rubbish. It is an insult to everything that has been made about vampires. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not against going against the norm with things but there are certain things you don’t trouble and this is one of them.
As I have mentioned above, in regard to the whole Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner rubbish, the fawning annoys me. No matter how awesome a movie-going experience it is to sit down and laugh at all the tweens fawn over Edward and Jacob it still annoys me to death. When I was at school when Twilight and New Moon came out, the tweens in my year who spent every day talking how hot Edward and Jacob were and debating who was hotter made me want to tear my hair out! Need I say more?
Do I really need to explain this one? Well, for all of you Twimoms who read this post and do not know why you are on this list here we go. It is one thing for a 30 or 40 something year old woman to fawn over a shirtless 17 year old boy(and in today’s world in fact it is almost accepted). But to name your children, your own flesh and blood after characters in a movie??? That is just plain wrong and I declare myself lucky that I do not know such people as I do not know what I would do if I did.
