I've written before about how Stephenie Meyer sucks at being a writer.
I had seen Twilight the movie and thought that was sickening. It was all I could do not to gag on my own bed while seeing all the bad acting that was going on. I had to watch it on two tries, as I couldn't take the cheese.
I vowed not to watch New Moon at the cinema, as I can imagine myself groaning loudly to myself at the cheesy bits. So I decided to wait for the DVD instead, and watch it at the privacy of my own bedroom.
So the books suck, the movies suck and the writer sucks. Why is it, then, that women everywhere are going gaga over them? The male population of the world look down on the other sex with utter disgust.
They just don't get it.
The girls don't see Bella in the story, they see themselves. Every girl lusted over an exciting, popular and handsome bad boy at least once in their lives, thinking they could change them into a sensitive guy. A guy that would suddenly always be there to save them, hang on to their every word and won't care about anything or anybody else. I'm sure Gabriela or the women's lib aren't too happy with this set back regarding the damsel-in-distress thing. Tsk.
What Twilight does is remind the girls of those feelings. The vampire/werewolf thing was just a side note. The story is all about feelings.
Twilight is basically girl-porn. Hehe!
