Wow wow robsten look amazing !! gorgoues! and i hate tylor really like matt daimon

just a fad @ 06/30/2010 at 5:09 pm

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.

YESSS!! I’m apart of history :)

Wow i love him wow i am alot like edward haha

Ive heard that there is another dark book series that has Vampires that might replace it It is suppose to be alot better but bring in even more people will have to see if it ever gets off the ground

@rumors: as long as the vampires dont freaking sparkle and someone actually dies im game !!!

I am in NO way suprised! People go crazy over this crap!!

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.

I going now with him

I am NOT suprised!! People go crazy over this crap!!

Anne Rice will always be the true Queen of the Vampire genre Ive read Twilight all of them (wish I hadnt) and nothing will ever touch the depth in which Anne Rice wrote her books, Bring back Lestat!!!!

@Heather: and you are very very sad little person thats in love with Edward or Jacob or the poor actors that have to have girls like you chase them wake up and smell the roses they arent real!!!!

Twilightbrainwashed @ 06/30/2010 at 5:23 pm

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.

make these movies go away please someone!!!
