Comments on this chapter have been disallowed, as is usual for Renard.
Today I saw a movie that I certainly never intended to watch: Twilight. I am opposed to this series on principle, mainly because it teaches young girls that creepy stalkers make perfect boyfriends, but also because I’m sick of American journalists calling it “the next Harry Potter“, when the Twilight novels aren’t so well written as Harry Potter, and Twilight-mania is largely confined to the USA anyway.
In spite of all this, I was determined to watch the movie with an open mind, if only because I had been forbidden from mocking the film since I was surrounded by Robert Pattinson fans (although they kept calling him Cedric Diggory).
It wasn’t an awful film, although I can’t honestly say I enjoyed it. Bits of it were good. The soundtrack was excellent, both in the choice of songs and the original score. Also, the baseball scene was awesome. The rest I found fairly dull. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve never seen the appeal of vampires, much less sparkly ones.
Incidentally, Edward seems to have a very strange definition of vegetarianism. He uses the word to mean that he doesn’t eat humans, only animals. Last I heard, deer were not plants. But hey, maybe they’ve been reclassified by science and I didn’t hear about it.
I also saw the Survivors series finale today. Very epic and intense. They had to go and end it on a cliffhanger, though, didn’t they? I’m very much hoping we’ll get another series.
