    just a fad Says:

    Its just a fad and its hype
    . The second movie also had the biggest drop off of all time from one weekend to another last November
    It droped by 70 percent in one weekend but no one focuses on that.
    The Blind Side unseated it.
    So that tells us it has a crazy fan base but not a regular people who dont give a crap just want to see something fan base. So basically its a fad, when the films end that will be it and something else will come along. Nothing to worry about I personally ignore it.

    To all of you bashing the Twilight stuff, who cares what you think? These movies are exciting to millions of people. To you they are not anything special, but to others, they’re great entertainment. I’m sure you all have something you got excited about and others didn’t. Just be quiet. You’re annoying.

    Twilightbrainwashed Says:

    Twilight is writen to brain wash little girls with Mormon ideals. I mean Bella doesnt even have any friends outside of her life with the two male charactes that is a mormon ideal so not only are these films bad they are scary unhealthy for young girls that without a man your world is nothing you dont have any friends all you need is him? Like I said scary and no one even sees it.
