Well, get ready to lose respect for the human race, because whether we razz it or not, it will sweep the MTV Movie, Teen's Choice, Kid's Choice, and People's Choice awards, just like the first one did. That, or maybe "Avatar" will swing in to save the day instead -- fingers crossed it does.

No one here is going to disagree with you about that.

There's a huge mound of things I could say about this movie.
 
First, when I pondered how bad the 4 or 5 main stars were, I started to realize that either Worst Cast or Worst Ensemble Cast would be a good idea.
 
Second, around where I live, only half of the females I asked said they liked this movie. Anyone, male or female, whom Pattinson, Stewart, and Lautner's appearance actually enamors THAT heavily...we need to approach them with caution.
 
Third, if there were a category for Worst Movie Everyone Saw (I hope you know the requirements there), this, along with Terminator Salvation, 2012, and Angels & Demons would be runners up, and Revenge of the Fallen would take it home.

I just saw this for $4.25 at the discount theater, and have to say that after hearing the polarized reaction from people and seeing it for myself, that I was pleasantly surprised. But I digress by agreeing with the critical consensus on RT: " Outsiders are likely to be turned off by its slow pace, relentlessly downcast tone, and excessive length."

Believe me, if you haven't read the books(from reading this forum, I doubt anyone here has), then read no further and just skip the movie. Just like with Watchmen, it will seem long and moody, and many of the conversations will make little sense or seem to have any meaning.

Those who remember how I was rather disappointed the first movie because it failed to adequately capture the feel and tone of the movie without seeming banal or awkward. Fortunately the sequel has been able to take the novel and turn it into a enjoyable movie(for the initiated anyway) thanks to better production values, a bigger budget, and a new director to guide it in the right direction. Director Chris Weitz seems to have a keen awareness of what he's doing, and he realizes that the excessively proper dialogue shared between characters is best when read on paper, and not when said by real human actors. The special effects have greatly improved also, especially in the fight scenes, which have a lot more detail and motion to them that the first one clunked on. Taylor Lautner and Kristin Stewart both give serviceable performances that make us believe their gradual romance.

One of the problems in the movie I had however, was Robert Pattinson. I remember Edward is supposed to be this tortured being who's insecure with himself, but man, I don't remember Pattinson delivering every line as if he were constipated in the first one the way he does here. Fortunately, he's gone for two-thirds of the movie, so it's only as a minor flaw. And clocking in at over 2 hours, the movie feels like it could have been trimmed down at least 10-15 minutes. 

As I said, I enjoyed this film for it was quite better than I was anticipating it to be, and while the Twilight series will never be the new Harry Potter, it will still deliver for everyone who has read the book what they were expecting.

Well movies like these are usually girl's-favorites. Who in return take their bfs to the cinemas as well, which in return increases the ticket sales. So basically all those girls who actually fall for this PERFECT-LOVER crap need to get a hold of them selves ...

That's all this movie is good for. This movie, and ""GI Blow". And by "amaze", I mean amazed how they thought those were going to pass as convincing visuals!

Oh no, the whiney little 14 year old girls are out in full force, bitching and moaning about us insulting their little semi-vampire soap opera on their cell phones. Whatever shall we do?

When I saw TWILIGHT,after I left the theater,I just wanted to talk to a lot of people'bout it,'cuz I thought it was good,but no so much.Unfortunately,it became a teen sensation,and we all know how they're treated.

I'm not very excited on seein'this one,'cuz it looks depressin'.

I just saw a trailer for ECLIPSE,which sucks,'cuz we don't learn the plot of the movie,we just see BELLA tryin'to choose between EDWARD and JACOB.

It's "Twilight", the only reason why it exists if for teenage girls to p*** their parents' money away to stare at Robert Patterson's bed head. As for choosing between Edward and Jacob, again, teenage girls' dreams come true ... two hot guys fighting over her. I don't understand why any one over the age of 16 goes to see these movies.

2011 will be a mixed blessing for books based on fantasy series. The Deathly Hallows Part II is scheduled for that year, albeit not before May 1. If Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn gets released then, I'll only have to wait a half year and it'll all be over. Unfortunately, Harry Potter doesn't have a good successor.
