I must be the only person who finds it creepy that there are grown women drooling over a 17yr old boy.

These mothers are not setting a good example for their kids at all. Some of the crazy ones are basically teaching their daughters that it's okay for an older women to go after a teenage boy

I'm definitely not into the whole craze. It's just ridiculous. I'm just a fan of the books themselves and I like seeing the books come to life with the movies.

When I went to see New Moon on Tuesday it was insanity. The show didn't open til 6 but my friends and I got there at 5:45 just to avoid the lines and stuff. Well there were tons of ppl outside and when they opened the door I got pushed so many times because ppl were running into the theatre. It's just a movie ppl
When I went opening night to see the movie the older ones were acting worse than the teenagers. Sat near a lady who was around 40 that whistled and hollered out when Jacob took his shirt off. Unfortunately it wasn't the only time she did that either. I have never carried on like that nor will I ever. Im just there to see one of my favorite books come to life in a movie.

Btw that's sheer craziness with what happened when you went to the movie. It is people like this that give us normal fans a bad name.

If you've suspected that there's something unhealthy about the relationship between Bella and Edward in the phenomenally successful Twilight series, then it turns out that you're exactly right. In fact, there are fifteen examples of unhealthiness.
Livejournal user kar3ning was reminded of something after going to see New Moon recently:



According to the National Domestic Violence hotline, these are some signs that you may be in an emotionally or physically abusive relationship.

Does your partner:
* Look at you or act in ways that scare you?
Check.

* Control what you do, who you see or talk to or where you go?
"Stay away from the werewolves. I love you."

* Make all of the decisions?
Check.

* Act like the abuse is no big deal, it's your fault, or even deny doing it?
"If I wasn't so attracted to you, I wouldn't have to break up with you."


* Threaten to commit suicide?
"I just can't live without you. In fact, I'll run to Italy and try suicide by vampire if anything happens to you."

* Threaten to kill you?
On their first date.



These are some more signs of an abusive relationship.
Has your partner...
* Tried to isolate you from family or friends.
Bella doesn't have time for anyone else!



* Damaged property when angry (thrown objects, punched walls, kicked doors, etc.).
Check.



* Pushed, slapped, bitten, kicked or choked you.
Does tossing her through a glass table count?

* Abandoned you in a dangerous or unfamiliar place.
"We're breaking up. And I'm leaving you in the forest."



* Scared you by driving recklessly.
Check.

* Forced you to leave your home.
She had to run away with him to flee from the other vampires in the first movie, and she had to drop everything and run to Italy in the second.



* Prevented you from calling police or seeking medical attention.
Check. Even in the hospital, nothing is a big deal.



* Views women as objects and believes in rigid gender roles.
Well, they are Mormon... (I know, I know, cheap shot.)



* Accuses you of cheating or is often jealous of your outside relationships.
Check, wolf-boy.



Now I'm pissed. According to the NDVH, "If you answered ‘yes' to even one of these questions, you may be in an abusive relationship." This list is fifteen.


We'd be interested in hearing Stephenie Meyer's (Or even some Twihards') response to this, but somehow don't imagine that one is forthcoming.

Yeah it sucks that they're making it seem that if you're a Twilight fan then you're automatically one of those crazy fans

I went for a second time on Wednesday too

Ya it's just as good the second time around. This time there were less people and no one sqealing during the movie. That made it better

It'll never reach the heights of the Harry Potter series. 4 out of the 6 films have almost made $1 billion worldwide, each! Holy shit. Twilight'll will continue to do well, but it won't put up Pirates/HP/LOTR/Batman numbers or anything.

Also, a lot of people tend to at least respect Harry Potter even if they don't read it. I haven't seen backlash against that as severe as you'd see with this series, and for good reason.

I'd like to apologize for all the shit I've ever said about Taylor Lautner.
He did a pretty soild job hosting SNL, and he was interacting with the audience durning the commerical breaks...

And I got to give him a high five!

From what I have seen of him in interviews he seems like a pretty nice guy
