Twilight (Zone)


While it is true that I can always have a signatured copy of Stephanie Meyer's book/s and maybe have a little chit-chat with her (an aunt goes to the same church with her), still, it is not enough reason for me to read her book nor watch even a minute of her movie/s.

The word Twilight used to connote fear, thanks to the TV series The Twilight Zone. Now, Twilight means overly-pale skin and Edward Cullen. And oh, hot(?) vampires as well. Jeez, I just don't get the whole Twilight brouhaha. And I wouldn't wanna kill my curiosity by flipping thru the trilogy's pages or watch it thru DVD.

People (I mean girls) have asked me with a big why and a gasp whenever I get to mention that I never watched nor read the trilogy. Ever. It was just too mainstream and blund for my liking. Or maybe too much media hype killed it for me. Or maybe it was really THAT cheesy.

The movie/s and the trilogy were too much tailor-made for the female and teen viewers that the more mature(?) male audience just couldn't get a grip on the hoopla. Almost everything about the movie's gay right? And maybe watching the movie would leave me with the same feeling as if suffering an hour of Days Of Our Lives or maybe any of those Glutathione informercials.

Haha! Glutathione? I think I have found a new topic to write about. For the meantime, Twilight really does suck (hard).

But can't discount the fact that the author of Twilight did quite a good job there, capturing her market. Not everyone likes it though.
