I don't really have anything against the Twilight film series. As you said, it's far from the most unlikable thing in Hollywood right now, and it's bringing in new demographics to the world of film fandom/geekery that never would normally, so that's only a good thing for mainstream cinema if my eyes.

On the other hand, I despise the novels with every once of my being. Some of the most sub-elementary, vapid, unreadable, asinine dreck I've ever laid eyes on. Not to mention it's ideologically deplorable.

Most definitely. I can understand where the Comic-Con crowd has a problem, where the fans camp out in Hall H all day just for the Twilight panel, and the nerds can't see what they want to see. That could be fixed with scheduling more than anything else. Again, I dislike the broad effect of what it's doing towards people's perceptions of supernatural characters, but it's not the only property ever to do that.

Oh yeah, there's that.

This pretty much sums up my feelings. As far as movies go, the first one way okay. Not great, not even good, but better than a lot of crap out there. And the whole movie thing with the actors and the fandom has been a fun, if somewhat insane phenomenon to watch unfold. I'll watch the second one too, when I can download it. The books though? Loathe them. LOATHE.

I agree, but the blonde in the middle has a cut-rate Gwyneth Paltrow thing going for her.

Besides, there are worse-looking fanbases:

I knew what you were talking about..... I'd probably have to give most of them a go though




Edit: except the fatty in the background on the far right
