  • [quote=ZombieLover]She's so right. It's like when I really thought that Miley was Hannah Montana because her hair & clothes were different. I was tricked into thinking that Hannah Montana was a different person. Preach on, Miley - rid this world of all it's evil.[/quote] Rid the world of its evil; seriously? I think the real cult members are idiots who listen to her propaganda. It seems by your comment that your apart of that cult.
  • If you don't like Gossip Girl, you can simply block the television show from your T.V....it's as simple as that. I am really sick and tired of people complaining....if you don't like then you shouldn't watch. If they don't show Monday's episode....I'm going to hurt someone.
  • I can't believe this happened. I thought Rachelle played Victoria wonderfully. She would of played a huge part in Eclipse too....I'm very sad now....dammit.
  • [quote=H Watcher]giggle35 - so the answer would be "No, I am not familiar with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. However that will not stop me from espousing all the virtues of Twilight and proclaiming it unique, while accusing others of judging." Buffy had more depth, exploration of consequences, interesting characters and back story than Twilight (at least the movie) AND it came first. But you are right about one thing - Bella is way more annoying in her infatuation than Buffy ever was (and that takes some doing). However, I was not "complaining" about how lame Twilight is but rather how absurd calling it "unique" or "iconic" is. Please. (To be fair, though, HP fans are just as bad. Like JK Rowling invented Wizards? Or boy heroes coming of age?) Let's just agree that both series have their fans (though it does seem that HP is the more popular overall, if only in terms of the number of books and movies) (so far). That's me last word on it -- I have a life to live.[/quote] Why was Buffy the Vampire slayer even mentioned in the first place? We are talking about Twilight. Plus, I never proclaimed Twilight was "unique" or "iconic". I just love the series. I do not want to be prosecuted for that. I'm done with this too because I ALSO have a life to live :)
  • This is another reason why I love Daniel Radcliffe. He's such a gentleman.
  • [quote=Elisa]I like them both. I do not think they are really comparable either because HP transitions from a young audience to an older one near the end and Twilight is decidedly mature in its themes. Also, from a literary aspect they are rather similar. HP is very creative and unique in terms of descriptive content, and a nice continuous over-arching plot mingled with plenty of subplot. The TS is actually very heavily drawn from classical romantic themes and written in a lovely easy-to-read style. If forced to choose one author over the other I choose Meyer because of the flow (try reading HP's out loud versus TS to examine the flow-- HP has prose issues that the mind can overlook and the tongue cannot). However, when it comes to the movies HP is hands down the winner in my book. (If I have to choose that is.)[/quote] Well said.
  • [quote=Sarah]All you have to do to determine which franchise is superior is view the fanbase. In these comments, the Twilighters responses have been barely eligible, consisting of disguised expletives, shallow knocks on Evanna's appearance, pointless exclamations of jealousy, chat speak, and an over use of capitalization. Harry Potter's defenders, on the other hand, have showed a considerably larger grasp of the proper use of the English language, relatively well thought out arguments, and a vocabulary beyond that of a fifth grader. Harry Potter is infinitely better than Twilight, in that it has a cohesive plot, which is unpredictable but not outlandishly so. The characters have actual personalities and flaws, and don't read as contrived or poorly written. JK showed more creativity, by imbuing her story of a fictional realm with real life lessons that the people who read Harry Potter can take to heart. Twilight was just brain candy. It's sugary and nice, but not very good for you.[/quote] Here we are judging once again, I am not one of those "Twilight fans" who uses bad grammar etc....I actually gave my reasons for liking the series. Let's read all the comments before we create a decision. If you dislike Twilight, that is your opinion and I respect that. However, I will not respect the bashing of Twilight fans simply because we enjoy the saga.
  • [quote=Historian Watcher]Hey Twilight nerds! "special" "unique" "iconic"? Yeah. Ever heard of a little show called "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"? Covered the whole vampire boyfriend thing with much better story-telling and depth. Rowling may have "borrowed" heavily from the fantasy/wizard genre but at least she put it all together in a fun way and added her own twists. Twilight's just a lame watered down retread. Holden's comment is right on: fantasy boyfriend for herself and little else.[/quote] Oh please, how dare you automatically judge something from outside appearance? Twilight is beyond "vampire" and "boyfriend" to some people. To people like me it holds depth because of it's plot. Besides the supernatural factors, characters like Bella and Edward are relatable. Bella's infatuation, her clumsiness....all of it makes it a profitable franchise. Twilight is what people want, stop complaining and deal with it.

  • She has her own opinion. Personally, I adore Twilight.
