A 23-year-old quietly drank himself to death after sneaking into a screening of Twilight: Eclipse in Wellington.
Damian Anthony Smythe's death was "a sad and tragic loss of life of a person so young", Wellington coroner Ian Smith said. Smythe was described in the coroner's report as an unemployed man with no fixed abode.
I was thinking it was going to be Twilight Zone not... the movie thing.
It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
The movie isn't THAT bad guys. I was forced into watching the first part one because it would mean a lot to the person I was watching it with (she loves twilight unfortunately). There was a lone balding guy in the cinema we dubbed "forever alone guy" (he came there on his own initiative, he derserves to cop something). I cracked up at the part she was giving birth to the demon child amoung other things. It actually gave way to some fond memories. Just look at things in a different light, even if they are a cancer to society.
