Honestly, Dear Reader, I can’t shit on the Twilight series as much as others might. I haven’t read the books, and have no intention of reading them, but I have seen all the movies, aside from the last one, and they’re surprisingly not awful. Long and rather boring, more often than not. Sloppily written, definitely. Poor acting, well, we all know about that. They’re certainly not good, but they’re not pieces of shit either. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that Eclipse was very close to being a decent movie. All that being said, Twilight definitely does its fair share of haters, so this one’s for you.
News has recently surfaced over an incident which happened in 2010, where a homeless New Zealand man snuck into a cinema for a screening of Eclipse, and during the course of the movie, drank himself to death. While I certainly don’t want to make light of something so horrible, it must be said that if a Twilight movie is bad enough to cause a young man to end his life while watching it, then surely the posters shoud have health warnings on them. And it is pretty funny that the guy snuck into the cinema, so they didn’t even get any money out of the guy. He could at least have paid the price of admission before he paid the ultimate price.
And the series isn’t even safe from the people involved in its success. Robert Pattinson, a.k.a. Edward Cullen, a.k.a. the man who makes all the teen girls ginies tingle, is clearly not a fan. That’s been obvious for a long time, but now we have this excellent supercut of the times where he has publicly bagged out the series. Check it out:
So there you have it. Before you go out and watch Breaking Dawn: Part II, perhaps you should reconsider, and go see Argo or Dredd, now also in cinemas. Apparently, they’re quite good, and hopefully you won’t want to kill yourself while watching them.
