My Super Special Twilight Post

**Be warned! Many people will not like what I have to say. But then again this is my journal :p

So yes I finally saw Twilight. With my mom no less. I'll recap my Twilight history for those that don't know me. Twilight is a series that I tolerate. I honestly don't see why it's special and not just another book in the YA section. I think if it was just another book I might like it more. But since it comes with all this hype I felt let down after reading it. There were so many scenes where I just wanted to scream and throw the book in frustration (in fact I did throw it once). I am not ashamed to say that I don't like the Bella/Edward romance. SO much melodrama it nearly drowned me. I perked up while reading New Moon since I loved all the Bella/Jacob interaction. I could care less that Edward went off to be all broody. I do not do broody vampires. Eclipse was disappointing because now my Jacob was being an utter asshat. Although for the first time I was enjoying Edward more. Bella and her constant nattering about wanting to be changed and not wanting to marry was annoying. But Edward was there to protect her virtue and I think I kind of loved him after that. I haven't read Breaking Dawn yet but I'm spoiled for it and from what I've heard I just keep shaking my head in disbelief.

So you might ask why I keep reading if I seem to hate it so much. Well for starters I don't hate it. Secondly it's strangely addictive in a way I can't comprehend. But most importantly I read for all the supporting characters. Alice is by far my favorite in the series. I feel so sorry for Charlie and the way Bella treats him. Now that we know Rosalie's story I love her. Jasper is kind of adorable and Carlisle and Esme are awesome.

As for the movie, my mom had a really fun time. She got a kick out of “vegetarian vampires.” I enjoyed all the Cullen family moments. The scenery was gorgeous. I loved Charlie and his pornstache!!! Jacob was hot (I dig long hair in general). Edward was quite the broody thing. I loved the topaz eye contacts. And the fight scenes were pretty awesome as well. So yeah I like it.

ETA: I totally forgot to mention that I don't think Edward sparkled enough. I wanted to be dazzled and I wasn't.
