Eldergays, Tell Me About The Film Series "Twilight."

Were they popular? Did they have any breakout stars or did most just fade away?

by Anonymousreply 45November 7, 2021 1:09 AM

Stewart & Pattinson continue to work, though nothing as big that I'm aware of. Taylor Lautner's career seems to have reached a dead end. Rami Malek won an Oscar for "Bohemian Rhapsody".

Eldergays what was it like when Donald Trump was President?

It was extremely popular with tweens and teenagers (as were the books they was based on). But there was a sense of ridiculousness and campiness to the fandom even among the people who took it seriously, because the books were extremely goofy (vampire skin sparkling in the sun, exaggerated vampire sense of propriety, emo-ness), and then the style of movies was also overwrought and goofy. The bubble popped with the last book, which was really, genuinely (but inadvertently) creepy in having the main characters give birth and then an adult character fall in love with the baby.

The breakout stars were Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, then the band Muse (the soundtrack was big), and then Anna Kendrick and Taylor Lautner.

[quote] exaggerated vampire sense of propriety

What exactly does this mean?

Remember that Twilight started as a fanfiction story that a Mormon housewife wrote about 50 Shades of Gray. So there is a lot of weird shit in it around sex (or the lack of), including Edward (vampire guy) not wanting to touch Bella (human girl) at all. A lot of the books are him being upset at her wanting to bone him and insisting they wait until the wedding night. He is also ice-cold in temperature.

R6 LOL don't know if you're being serious, 50 shades of gay was fanfiction of Edward and Bella from a British haus frau...

It's hard to decide what was worse about the movies - the acting or the dialogue.

Eldergays, what was it like way back when during the November 2021 off-year elections?

by Anonymousreply 21November 4, 2021 12:59 AM

Two hot guys fighting over a plain boring basic girl. That's the appeal to teen girls and some gays. A lot of girls in my high school where obsessed with this series. Read the books and anticipated the movie prior to release. I never hated it because it wasn't my demographic. Not that there's a lot of gay teen lit but I just was a hipster who preferred to read classics or literature for adults. That said, I always thought Taylor Lautner was cute - I saw Sharkboy and Lavagirl as a kid. He grew up be very hot. Robert Pattinson I thought was a total butterface, nice abs but goofy looking face. But I wouldn't kick him out of bed. Kristen Stewart is a terrible actress, terrible even in Catch That Kid. I wasn't surprised to learn that her parents are in the film industry.

A friend loaned me the book when they first came out, before the CRAZE. "You love Buffy, you'll love this."

I got to page 200 and gave it back because nothing had happened except lots od staring.

Incredibly romantic. Superb acting. Beautiful cinematography. I am lucky to have watched it at least 2 dozen times.

I am grateful to HVN/Haters Know Nothing blog - that is how I leaned of the top secret marriage of the two stars, and their children. Did you know that they traveled through secret tunnels in LA to avoid paparazzi?

What pissed me off the most about the film was how cheaply it was made. Whatever you think of Harry Potter and similar franchises, it's clear time and money and effort was put into them. The Twilight films look cheap, like every possible corner was cut in the budget.

by Anonymousreply 30November 5, 2021 8:22 PM

Why do you fools reply to these troll threads? Twilight is 12 years old only. The OP is old enough to know about it.

by Anonymousreply 31November 5, 2021 8:45 PM

Right R31? Even if he is still eighteen he certainly must have watched it as child or a few years ago.

Interesting 😄 Taylor is usually the one who gets described as a butterface. And Robert is a footface with spray on abs.

I would have been insulted. Buffy was actually a good show.

Hated that shit.

Fraus LIVED for it. My frau friends were OBSESSED with the books and then would go in groups to the movies. We were in our 20s and they were lusting after some high school vampire.

Twilight, True Blood, Teen Wolf, The Vampire Diaries and etc were all the rage in the late 2000s to early 2010s. It must have been a revival of the late 90s obsession with sexy vampires and supernatural beings like Interview with the Vampire, Buffy, Angel, Charmed, etc. Those fads do seem to work in cycles.

by Anonymousreply 36November 6, 2021 4:30 PM

Really stupid trolling comment to open the thread. Nobody lives under a rock and Twilight is not a franchise of today's eldergays. OP can fuck himself for being so humorless.

Too bad they all turned out to be shit. Although Teen Wolf and True Blood had gay characters (and sex scenes).

Does anyone remember The Blair Witch Project? It was supposed to be so scary and all it was was a bunch of kids running through the woods screaming throwing a camera around

The book and the movies are kind of shit, but the movies came with cute Taylor Lautner showing off his abs and a pretty decent soundtrack.

Love this Editor track (song starts at 0:48 for some strange reason).
