'Ringing any Bellas?' is kinda cute but not something I would choose to end a point I was trying to make if I was approaching it with any true seriousness.

Well the fact you are going to use your sister to hate on Twilight is not going to convince me of anything. The way you ended it with 'Ringing any Bellas?' after the horrible ordeal your sister went through in real life causes me to further dismiss your concern towards either her or the movie.

I see. So your reply is to avoid the points being presented and turn it into an attempted insult by insinuating that I don't care for my sister.

Which is really no reply at all.

I presented two points. I await a proper response to them.

It's called 'driving the point home'. In this case, drawing a direct line between my sister's behavior and Bella's behavior, indicating that the most realistic outcome of any Bella/Edward relationship in real life is going to be isolation and abuse. Not the romantic heights these children watching and reading are now ingraining into their mind.

I think I would rather just discuss the positive aspects of the movie now. I assure you I have already addressed your points either before or after your post and do not wish to touch any of them more than briefly. If you were reffering to your last two questions, about a hypothetical daughter, and your sister, no, I am not going to touch either of those.

If anyone else wants to discuss the movie itself, scenes, background info, etc....feel free too. If not continue the hatred without me.

Well to be fair the bit about the Natives interaction with the vampires was interesting in the first film. They should have focused on that instead of all the emo crap.

Eh,see...even that...not so good.

The Native Americans are portrayed as beasts. Savage. Heck, I don't think SM has any of them wearing anything other than shorts or some crap through most of the books. Vampires, cool, live forever, beautiful vs Wolves - animals, smell bad, uncontrollable, etc.

Yeah. Let's hear it for racism.

History of Mormons and Native Americans

Edit to add - I always thought that if they killed off the main three characters the books would be much better.

Edit to add again - Corp - didn't mean to imply that YOU were racist. :) I find racism in the book.

IIRC, after they start fursploding transforming into wolves, they can't wear anything except just shorts because they'd overheat otherwise. In the Pacific Northwest. *coughs*

LOL. Yeah, it was some kind of bs like that. Didn't the carry around extra shorts as well?

Freaking uptight fundamentalist mormon repression.

Jeesh.

:P

Oh yesh! They carried extra pairs around in case they accidentally fursploded transformed, to protect their modesty when they become human again. :rolleyes:

:lol: Except me and one of my friends (one who can look at things objectively, and has never uttered the words "OMG SPARKLES") have reached a general consensus that Robert Pattinson is just plain unattractive in New Moon. Too much glaring and looking like he hasn't showered. :yes:

LOL. She's not thrilled with him in New Moon or Twilight at all.

Well, it's very odd...she likes the accent and that he's...well, NOT buff and that his abs are spraypainted on.

She says she likes chubby boys. LOL.

Like I said, my daughter is strange.

To veer completely OT, have you seen The Bad Mother's Handbook? He's in that, and well... :rofl:

And to come slightly back to the topic in question, did I mention how often the audience at the viewing of New Moon I went to went "*gasp* OMG" every time one of the Quileutes came on screen? :rolleyes: Then when Jacob took his shirt off, you couldn't even hear what he was saying there were that many screeches... *headdesk*

Yeah. We went through that as well. WOMEN MY FREAKING AGE were gasping, clapping, ooohing and ahhing when Jacob took off his shirt. Bunch of pedo's. :rolleyes:

There was a young girl, about 12-13 sitting a couple of seats away from us and she was SAYING THE WORDS ALONG WITH THE MOVIE!! We saw it Saturday morning. How the HELL did she know all the words!

*eyeroll* The dude is 17!

And she probably went to the same time showing as me on the Friday night, then recorded it on her phone and stayed up all night learning it by heart.

Wouldn't even surprise me.

Why Breaking Dawn should be made into a movie :rofl:

The writer of this article sums up Breaking Dawn (the last book in the series) perfectly. And I agree with him. I want the pile of crap turned into a movie..it's going to be hilarious
