ughhhh

i am so sick of hearing about "twilight" all the time. ew. get over it people. i hear they are pretty crappy books, and i saw a preview for the new movie. it looks bad, and quite freakish to be honest. it was even on the news as "Twilight is helping students get into reading!" Please...if you want a kid to get into reading then hand them a harry potter book. i hate the movies, but the books are good.

i dont know if twilight is as huge everywhere else, but it is what everyone has been raving about here in utah. bleggggh. ok, im done.

First book was almost good. Not great, but entertaining. All the rest sucked, especially the last. Ryan says it is a "mormon trend" to be into the series.

That said, I probably will rent the movie when it comes out on DVD, mostly out of curiosity.

Seriously, what is the deal with people thinking it is all awesome. I want to tell people to get some higher standards when it comes to reading.

Hopefully no one is offended by my rant, it's just that there are so many quality books out there, why waste your time with these????

I agree. I refuse to read the books and I am going to keep it that way. I bet the movie sucks hardcore. Jeff said he was tempted to go see the movie just so he could make fun of it better but I say, ew no.

Also, yesterday everyone was talking about it in class and my professor had never even heard of it. He asked who was going to the movie that night and almost everyone raise their hands. I didn't. He asked why I wasn't going and I said, I think its stupid and plus I didn't read the books...I got the worst glares I have ever received in my life shortly following that statement.

I'm with you. I just told my co-worker this morning that if I have to hear about the movie one more time I'm going to freak out. It's all anyone talks about in my office. Please. It's for 10 year old girls.

slight confession that although i haven't seen the movie {yet}, i did enjoy the books. and i am a really big reader and have a high bar when it comes to books i consider to be ok. twilight wasn't written well, but i did enjoy it. i guess everyone is entitled to their opinion. i will say i was suspicious and totally not wanting to read or entertain any idea or conversation with the twilight fanatic crowd, but after reading the first book i did end up reading the rest...


and yes, i maybe have a ticket to see the movie tomorrow.

and yes, please do judge me. i don't really care.

haha its ok, i mean i havent read the books obviously so i dont really know. it just seems like such a fanatic thing now. but you'll have to share if the movie is as gross as it looks haha
