Yes, it’s confession time. I know a certain person that has a weakness for a certain show that I find [extremely] stupid. So it’s only fair that I confess my own [extremely] stupid weakness.
The books are dumb. The fans are a tad over the top. The series itself seems to be a bit of a Harry Potter wanna-be. And yet I know that I am going to go see this movie when it comes out in theaters, or if I don’t get a chance, then I’ll either rent or buy it.
I wouldn’t call myself a diehard fan of the series. Hell I think it’s dumber than shit. And at the same time it’s genius. I can’t help it. Something about these idiot books and movies draws me in. Here are my thoughts: The characters are revoltingly lovey-dovey, but I can’t help but think that haters hate on that fact because it’s exactly what people (or girls, at least) want in life. I think the series is so appealing because it’s about a man who would do absolutely ANYTHING for the one woman he loves more than ANYTHING in the world. Patch on the idea that it is a forbidden love – one that is almost guaranteed to never work out – as well as an angry, jealous, big brother man on the other side, and you have yourself a story.
I’m kind of waiting for a Philosophy & Twilight book to hit the shelves, if it’s not already out there, and I’d like to read it when it does. Fate… choice… such extreme circumstances. Yeah I have a hard time pairing the word ‘fate’ up with ‘Twilight.’
Anyway I don’t think that’s justification for me going to these movies, but I’m human. There’s my weakness. After the movie I’m going to shake my head and roll my eyes, and say how dumb it was. But deep down in my subconscious I’m gonna be lovin’ it.
