I've heard consistently good things about the novel, but never the same for the films. James Cameron might be doing a new one in 2014, I suppose. He's probably a good choice, considering Avatar ripped off many of Dune's plot elements.
Even "THE SPICE!!!11!" sounds better than "Unobtainium." That's telling.

rofl Alaris. Well Edward did say "Doesn't he own a shirt?" in Eclipse. I just hope you guys don't buy the movies just to make fun of them; kind of a waste of money in my opinion if you don't enjoy them. Still, even if it is in a sense of making fun of it, you're still watching it with your girlfriend, and that's more than what many boyfriends to.
I get the sense that no matter what we do, we'll find a way to make it fun (within reasonable limits of course). I love that feeling.
But yeah, I really don't think I can deal with Eclipse more than once, and neither could she. We're renting (if we don't decide to do something else instead).
People bought iPods just to destroy them in Apple stores, right after purchase.
hahahaha Well now that is extreme - if you buy movies to make fun of them and enjoy it, well that's one thing because you can do it over and over. But buying an iPod just to smash it? I'm pretty sure the warranty won't cover that so you're out $(whatever they cost back then).
I do have to ask, please be civil and mature, but why does everyone hate Twilight? Is it because they sparkle? Is it because it's a chick flick/love story? Is it because the vampires aren't evil? I really don't know what all the hating is about. Now I'm not saying it's the best movie of all time, but I am a fan of it. I don't devote my life to it like those people on mylifeistwilight.com (that site even makes me cringe and I refuse to go to it; I just checked it out to see what the hype was about).
So yeah, don't bash/flame, etc., just tell me why there is so much hate toward the series because I really don't get it.
In other news...I watched it again today. lol But tomorrow we're watching Pearl Harbor in honor of the anniversary (though we'll be a day late). My fiance hates that movie, he says it's historically inaccurate. I don't know about that but I could care less, it's a good movie. haha
Vampires used to be bad*** blood-sucking monsters. Twilight turned them into complete pussies. That's the problem I think most people are having.
No pacing, plot points which go nowhere, a plot which in general goes nowhere, vacant staring replacing interaction between individuals, uninteresting, self-absorbed character forming almost caricatures of pubescent adolescents, repetitive use of language, boring romance... I probably forgot some points.
