ok, i just watched twilight and i want those hours back  
I didn't go into this naively.  I didn't expect it to be great.  I didn't expect it to be good.  I expected it to be bad on the order of .... oh, say Resident Evil: Extinction.

But it made RE:E look like movie-making genius.  I am SO glad I didn't pay for that, and didn't bother to see it in the theatre.  This is what I get for being curious - sometimes it really does not pay off.  The pathetic part is that we even ran out of mocking material because it was so repetitive that we couldn't find anything new to mock.  And that was HALFWAY THROUGH THE MOVIE.

anybody want to rec me some vampire fics where the characters actually do have sex and there is biting?  because at this point i'm trying to do the fic=brain bleach.

I mean, Twilight made Dollhouse look good.  that's just frightening.

and ok, i know, i'm totally late to the Twilight dissing party, since it was forever ago, but ... I'm traumatized now dammit.

i did laugh out loud a couple of times, but then after a while... the laughter died.

but that t-shirt? would be awesome. So would fic that has nothing to do with the primary pairing, especially femslash. but i read the first book because Neil got it for me for christmas and... never again. i'd rather reread LKH, and i don't do that anymore :D

Yeah, I think I'll be skipping this. Hubby picked up Batman: The Dark Knight yesterday and I fell asleep soon after it started (he was rubbing my feet, though, so I was blissed out). Good thing we have the movie for 5 days, but I'm not holding out much hope for staying awake again tonight.
It's been a loonnnggg Spring Break.

i would totally trade batman for Twilight! but yeah, i kind of wish i could've fallen asleep. Neil wouldn't even stay in the same room with us to watch it, so at least you're one up on me with the feet rubbing! :D

My poor hubby bought me the first book for my birthday because it had vamps in it. Bless him, I read it. (insert gagging noise here) Then, for kicks and giggles, I watched the movie a few days ago (pay-per-view @$2.00 doesn't sound too unreasonable) hoping it might be a little better.


I don't know who was worse: Bella looking all high and forgetting half her lines, or Edward looking constipated or like a rod was shoved up his backside and constantly doing the 'looking over your glasses thing even though you don't have glasses'. If I did that the whole time, my freakin' eyes would hurt, not to mention the cramp in my neck! Jasper looked like he was constantly stunned and all the characters were so FLAT they looked one-dimensional.

I want my $2 back.

I did the EXACT SAME THING!! I love it when the boys love us to try and help our interests, and really, who knew how bad it really was?

*pets you* i would totally give you your $2 back! my housemate (who watched with me) was like "i would give her her money back too!!"

It's not vampire fic and it's not perfect, but here's a really good email fic. You know how I adore email fics, and this one is totally sweet. It's Jack/Ianto (duh) set over three months' time when Ianto is away at Torchwood house taking care of the archives there.

It's 26 chapters, but don't let that scare you off. The chapters are short and it's a quick read.

I read the first two books one weekend because i wanted to waste some time and felt like reading trash. I enjoyed those four hours enormously. I refused, however, on principle to see the film.

And the next piece of pre-release Twilight merchandising i see is going to end up down the throat of the nearest teenage girl whose exclaiming how hot Pattz is. Ugh.

this you SO should NOT have to suffer! *hugs*

and yeah, i read the first one in a night and didn't feel that bad, but for whatever reason the film was just worse.

It looks worse! Like, without having seen even a trailer for it, it looks seedy and nasty and just... bad.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. NOW YOU SEEEEE. I refuse to pay for it, but at least I knew what I was getting into and created the action plan of not paying for it at all.

That said, the movie isn't that bad. Behold the horror that the movie > book. The movie at least has fabulous lulz of RPattz's precious face and hair, and OH GOD THE BAD WIGS (hi Cam Gigandet's abs). But I have the whole badfic addiction, so I'm embracing the sparkle (SKIN OF A KILLLLLLEERRRRRRR!!!!) and love the terribleness of this movie. But the soundtrack is pretty good. Um. Yeah, I'll shuffle away now.

i really really wanted to love it for it's terribleness, but i couldn't. but i can foresee, someday in the future when it hits the cable channels and i end up watching it over and over (because this is my default when CSI is not on... i find a movie i have seen before and turn it on), that i may end up loving it.

but srsly? not yet

and ARRRRRGH movie?!??

I've actually heard Dollhouse has gotten a lot better. I've not yet gotten around to testing that hypothesis, though.

I refuse to see or read Twilight on principle.

It did for one episode, and then it went down the drain again. I'm having fun watching and despairing, so at least it is entertaining me in that sense.

and yeah, probably a good idea.
