C'mon Hollywood: Let Twilight R.I.P.

Nov. 13, 2012by: Paul Shirey

This Friday is a big day for many of you, possibly for very different reasons. Some of you will be dragged, kicking and screaming, or lured willingly and with great excitement, to witness the end of the TWILIGHT saga onscreen. After four years and five movies, the vampire/werewolf/human love triangle series from author Stephanie Meyer will deliver its final chapter, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN (PART TWO), and put most of us out of our collective misery. Or, so we hope.

Let’s face it; the TWILIGHT saga has changed the model of Young Adult novel adaptations forever. It has awakened a genre for young tweeners, giving them a venue for the stir of emotions that adolescence brings, which makes kids of that age rabid for one thing; a boyfriend/girlfriend. I saw the first TWILIGHT film in theaters (my only venture for the franchise) and felt that it was fine for who it was intended for, but a pile of shit for who it wasn’t (me). The audience of that first screening was telling of the hype to come, as there was a cavalcade of audible gasps and flowing tears throughout. If we only knew then what was to come…

Since its release TWILIGHT has created a horde of uber-obsessed fans (aka Twi-hards), some of which seem genuinely in need of professional help, while others are really no different than a rabid Star Wars fan. While many of us are annoyed and put off by the contrived characters, lack of any real horror (especially for vampires and werewolves), and those ridiculously long takes of Edward and Bella staring at each other, the truth is that we don’t have any right to begrudge the Twi-hards their entertainment.

But, now it’s time to put that shit to pasture. You’ve had your fun. Hopefully, everyone has lost their virginity and we can all move on. See? It’s not that big of a deal is it? You stare and lust for a while, then you hook up, then you’re dating, then you’re married, then you’re a vampire with a kid that won’t stop growing and your parents are pissed at you for every bad turn you’ve taken in your life. The “meadow dream” is over.

Or is it? See, that’s the problem. The TWILIGHT saga, thus far, has grossed more than 2.5 billion worldwide in ticket sales. That doesn’t account for the books or the merchandise (which includes cookbooks, underwear, dolls, body sparkle, and…tampon cases? Look, Google the shit if you don’t believe me. Or don’t). Bottom line, this is a Golden Goose for Summit Entertainment and to lop the head off that beast and serve it for dinner is not likely something they’re keen on.

We keep hearing about this “twist” ending for the final chapter this Friday, which is sure to stir some kind of controversy amongst fans and non-fans. For fans, there’s the potential to disrupt canon; for non-fans, it’s the possible threat that they could leave the door wide open for a whole other set of films, which will make most of us do the Darth Vader "no" howl from REVENGE OF THE SITH. And break shit.

The thing is, TWILIGHT is a juvenile, eye-rollingly awful series of films. I’m pretty sure it can be scientifically proven. And, I’m totally cool with that. Let the tweeners have their heyday. But, once the childish endeavor is over, I think it best to move on to better material. I know that Summit execs are licking their lips in anticipation of finding another way to milk this cow, but for f*cks sake, there are rows of Young Adult novels that can be turned into a franchise.

And, obviously, Hollywood has taken note of that. We now have even more high-concept love triangle pics in our midst, such as THE HUNGER GAMES, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, and the next Stephanie Meyer adaptation, THE HOST. Do you know what that means? It means that there are a lot of significant others who will have to suffer through these overblown love stories for many more years to come. All thanks to a sparkling, fangless vampire, a “hunky” werewolf man-boy, and a seriously disturbed female protagonist who does it all for “love.”

What we ask, dear Hollywood, best bud, good pal, awesome friend, is to please let TWILIGHT go. End the suffering, the madness, the humiliation, the unhygienic products, and the emasculation of two of horror’s most popular archetypes. Enjoy your money. Buy a hot tub. Have a party. But then, you let that shit go, cool? I’m positive you can find some other way to lure tweeners into theaters, but please, not with more of this. All involved deserve something better. We’ve bitten the apple, our innocence is shattered, our psyches ravaged; let us be free, once and for all.

Gotta love this...

Stephen King once said this when comparing Harry Potter to Twilight, which is spot on, specially regarding Twilight.

"Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing
what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it
is to have a boyfriend." - Stephen King

I'm not sure why people even care

This is like getting worked up over a poorly made franchise aimed at young children. These movies aren't marketed for you, so yeah, they may be poorly made, or poorly acted, but who cares. When a group of mostly young white male genre addicts get worked up about twilight, it says to me that they feel more threatened that studios are willing to market genre movies to a demographic outside of their own.

I think there's some confusion as well that if a movie contains some genre archetype like a vampire, that the male genre community gets to claim ownership. The fact that the studios see an addressable market in women and girls, and don't really give a shit why hyperactive angry young male internet posters are going to think of the effort is actually what really bothers people. It's not that Twilight exists, its the hubris that the studios couldn't even think the premise of a smaltzy, female oriented vampire movie could be acceptable with checking with guys first. When I read all the complaints lobbied at specific entries, or the franchise in general, this is what I'm hearing. I'm not defending the movies, but I'm definitely wondering why guys get so offended by their existence. And the more angry the protest, the more clear it's not about a movie being bad - because there are plenty of male-oriented bad genre movies that don't this kind of hate.
Or put another way - maybe you ought to spend less time thinking about Twilight, if you don't like Twilight. Fuck, the way some people go on about these movies, I almost want a barrage of thumbs down.

I don't know

My wife has never seen Twilight and she probably wouldn't be interested. She likes zombie movies with blood and gore, much more than I do in fact: sometimes slow moving zombies are just boring, you know?

I actually thought the first Twilight movie was okay. It was a simple 100 year old creepy predator "boy" meets innocent girl story. Be honest, if it were a porno you would watch it, right? Except Bella would need a tan and a nice rack and be wearing a thong for half the movie.

I was surprised when the sequel came out. Do you know Twi-Hards actually quote lines from the film? A have a friend on Facebook who posted "Edward: I love her and she loves me. Jacob: But she loves me too." Seriously, they think that is good writing.

Anyway, it's ironic that they would quote that line and then the actress who plays Bella turns out to be a slut in real life. :)

I see the red banners and think that people hate...

The article. After reading a few of the comments I mostly agree with Dark Elfa, mostly. The thing is I know that some folks, myself included have been dragged to one of these shit fests and have actually gotten dumber buy watching it. I will never ever forget "i wanna have sex with you" to which he replied "we have to get married first". That kind of writing just fucking annoys me. The two leads can't act for shit, and poor shark boy, got stuck in this shit. I don't speak to the girl who took

Maybe I'll call her when it's done.

Never seen any of the films, never will--they're so not my thing and I'm honestly not even curious. I will say that The Hunger Games was decently entertaining and not an "overblown lovestory" like the rest of this tween crap. Mostly because we got to watch kids kill each other and Woody Harrelson be awesome. Everyone wins!

We get shit like Twilight or something inspired by that audible fart known as Glee. The Hollywood that had great ideas is in a recession.

A-men.

Don't bother bringing up Star Wars in relation to Twilight; there's really no comparison. Star Wars has universal themes of honour and redemption and tells a timeless archetypal story of a boy growing into a man and facing his fears. Twilight tells the story of how important it is to have a boyfriend.

In the end, to be honest, I'm not sure that us non fans have any right to ask for Twilight to end. I certainly wouldn't want to hear a group of Twi-Hards calling out collectively for an end to Star Wars. Why? Because it's not for them. It's for us. They can have their silly little sparkling vampires, but leave my Star Wars the fuck alone.

Take a look out there right now, thanks to the SW Episode 7 news, there are man sized underoos being wet dreamed the fuck up from here to Kalamazoo. How many OMG top ten dream lists are out there right now over actors, directors, story lines? '

As long as they stay to theirs, I'll stay to mine.

I hear what you're saying DarkElfa and I agree on the "you have yours, I'll have mine" thing. My point is that Twilight is really just awful entertainment. It offers nothing other than wet dream fantasies in tween-world, which would be better served if it tackled themes that actually affected real tweens. In truth, Wreck-It Ralph has fifty times more depth than all the Twilight films put together. That's saying something.

In truth, Wreck-It Ralph has fifty times more depth than all the Twilight films put together. That's saying something.

Star Wars and Twilight simply don't compare. Whether you like the original trilogy, the new one, or both, the bottom line is that at least it lends some humanity, some thematic elements that we can all relate to, males and females. It's not a "guy" series, it's a series for everyone. And let's face it, Chewbacca has more personality than Bella.

Let's talk about character for a second. I'll bet you could rattle off biographies of the most obscure Star Wars character and it would be amazing. What do we learn about Bella, Edward, or Jacob? What are their aspirations? What makes them tick? What are their challenges? What will make me root for them? Nothing. Bella lives to stare at Edward and vice versa. Jacob lives to stare at Bella. Their endstate goal is to just lay around and stare at each other and bone.

They are each devoid of anything that makes them a relatable human being, which is exactly what the audience watching them is. They're cardboard cutouts with voices that do nothing but emote, emote, emote. Twilight is not only for tweens, but it highlights the worst possible time in a tweens life, when they are confronted with all these stirring emotions and are too immature to understand anything about them.

And what does Twilight teach kids to do about this? Just, y'know...go with it...and just...love...and stare...and maybe become a vampire. Then, bone, get pregnant, and have a baby. Don't worry, your baby daddy will be a rich vampire, so you'll be set for life, which you'll continue to spend [link] No dreams, no ambition to do anything with their lives, just staring, fucking, staring, fucking, and I'm slitting my wrists.

Annnnd, I've knocked out another column here. In all seriousness, it's good to hear you guys riled up and hitting back. Good shit.

Twilight is only a movie Paul. it's not meant to teach people anything. It's entertainment. Why should Twilight depict real life issues? It's a movie with vampires and werewolves. That's as unrealistic as it gets. The movie is about the same true love as in Casino Royale where James Bond quit his job after his first assignment as much coveted double-O agent to be with a women he met three days earlier. And that's after he insulted her. I insult most women when I meet them and none of them fell

@Herald...the issue is substance. Twilight has none. It's cool if you dig it. Millions of screaming women agree with you. Bond has an established reputation for being enraptured by women. And Casino Royale has a thousand times more depth, excitement and originality than Twilight. Shit, so does Moonraker for that matter.

I am going to get reamed but, George Lucas is just as bad as the Execs at Summit for milking the shite out of their franchises. You can say that about any money making franchise - good or bad. It is all about the Benjamins. I can count numerous cash hogs that had potential and did a 180 just because they made bank. I am just greatful those GD Shiny Vamps and those SyFy bad Wolves are done.

I give the first one a pass, then the fans burst through, and now its like; hey lets make these movies for the sake of trading shit for money. It's like falling for the worst rap song ever. And most rap songs are shit.

For my part, I never did understand how a series like Twilight, this BILLION-DOLLAR FRANCHISE, always manages to look like a SyFy TV movie. I guess that's part of the profit margin, but forgetting for a moment that the stories are shallow dreck, how, when they had all these

I guess that's part of the profit margin, but forgetting for a moment that the stories are shallow dreck, how, when they had all these different (decent) directors working on it, does it always look so damn bad? Would it just kill them by now to invest in some decent special effects? There are plenty of big franchises I don't watch, this is just the most improbable one I know.

And I agree. Like I said, many of the rabid fans can be compared to your typical rabid Star Wars fans in terms of obsession over the material. The gripe I have is that Twilight is just a terrible fucking series. It's a tween fantasy that doesn't offer any kind of substance. The honest trailer is deadly accurate. The only thing I can see any of the fans of this series taking away it's that being in an obsessive relationship is the end-all, be-all state of existence.

The only thing I can see any of the fans of this series taking away it's that being in an obsessive relationship is the end-all, be-all state of existence.

If you look at Star Wars, which may not be perfect in every way, it at least addresses a multitude of real-life themes that can be applied to your own life. It's much easier to relate to and embrace. Sure, it has its Jar Jar Binks and Ewoks, but it's got a lot more going for it, including the creative aspect, which Twilight couldn't touch by a mile.

And you've got it right in terms of special effects. With the boatloads of cash they've made, you'd think they'd hire a special effects company to deliver some wow, but no, they seem to love the ho-hum visuals. What's really important, it seems, is the baby mama drama that makes Twilight more like a day time soap opera than a creative, visually stunning series that offers relevant material to its audience.

So, yeah, I agree with you. Just compounding my take. However, I'll take Jar Jar Binks over Edward and Bella any day of the week.

Very true about crazy STAR WARS fans but the main difference is that STAR WARS started as a legendary trilogy of films whereas TWILIGHT has been shit from the very beginning.

I imagine it would depend on who the people are considering them to be legendary. For me, like you, SW is Legendary, to my wife, it boring shit and reversed for Twilight.

My biggest gripe has only ever been the completely irrational hate the series gets. Sure, they suck, but every year they've been out, there have been at least 10 films that were much, much worse. They only got so much attention because they were popular, but not with guys which almost never happens.

also, the reason they don't spend more on the effects is because their target demographic doesn't really care, so why not just maximize profit instead.

I never realized just how creepy Twilight was . . .

until I watched that Honest Trailer. Of course the worrying thing is that a generation of girls will think a controlling, stalking guy is ooey-gooey romantic . . . until they actually get in a relationship with a guy like Edward Cullen.

I think some people need to grow the hell up.



My wife, who is a Twi-Hard herself was sitting on the couch when I started flipping out over the Star Wars sale and you know what she looked over at me and said? "Christ, please don't let them make any more of those stupid movies. They already made six, each worse than the last, just let it die already."

Fucking humbling and the shoe sucks on the other foot.

I don't like Twilight at all but

it would be STUPID to let it die. The movie industry is a business and these movies are moneymakers for sure. They already have ideas to expand the universe with spin offs and such I heard so I can't blame them for continuing, regardless of quality or artistic integrity; that's now what this is about (or what this franchise has ever been about I don't think haha)

I hated the movie, but as long as there is interest, and i don't have to watch it, please carry... what's the big deal in letting other people enjoy their movie?

To be honest while I agree with you, I hate it because it takes money and attention from films that are so much better like it will this weekend from LINCOLN and SKYFALL. Two films that clearly had a cast and crew that gave a shit about the material instead of just making bank. The very existence of this franchise just spits on film-making. That's my main gripe.

Die twilight die. I don't care how it goes. Edward gets a sun tan. Jacob gets neutered. Bella finds out she is a lesbien. Just end it already.
