I don't want to judge something before I see it but Netflix tells me I'll strongly hate it if I watch it.

I don't think the films are very reflective of the books. A bunch of my friends who are Twilight fans absolutely hated the first movie.

As for me, I think the whole series should shrivel up and die, like a vampire is supposed to do when they go out in the sunlight.

It did.

No, it isn't!
They're much better than the movies....
I believe that the movies are more for girls :S
2): I'm not old enough to understand girls.
1 ) Heh, I don' think anybody lives THAT long.

It seemed to me like Bella wasn't the best role model for girls. Wishy-washy, sitting around waiting for a guy to save her. Maybe it's just me, but some female friends have concurred.

She's also fine with being in an abusive relationship that the book glorifies.

I read the series mainly because a friend of mine at the time would talk about them all the time.  I took a book and read it in a few days, then didn't read another until right before the last one cam out.  I was at his house a bit during the summer and he couldn't stop talking about different part, just talking of snippets with his girlfriend.  So I took the book and when the his twins weren't using me as a jungle gym read them.  The books aren't that bad, yes they were targeted to a certain genre,  but others liked them as well.

And it is fine with the vampires sparkling, as long as the zombies all have cognitive thinking scientist to further their cause and ride unicorns.

I haven't read the books, but I had seen the first movie. I will just say one thing: I prefer the vampire chronicles written by Anne Rice.

She doesn't like then anymore because she "writes for Jesus" now. But they should still be sold because they "show her journey" (which is a funny way to say "they make me a fuckload of money").
