Hey hey everyone!
No, this is not a hate post…not in any way.. I see people out there saying why they hate Twilight and all of that…and I many of them doing it in a very sad and hateful way.. And since the last part of the series just premiered I thought it would be the perfect time to write this post telling you why I don’t like it!
No, it’s not because of the lack of clothing of the werewolf…it’s not because of the acting skills of any of the actors…and it’s not because Meyer decided to make vampires sparkle (although I do find that quite weird and…well…hilarious!)
It’s actually because of the story itself! And just so everyone knows, I read the books and I saw all of the movies (except for this last one)….the first one because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and the second because…well…I like to watch movie’s made after books. It’s just a pet peeve I have…I like seeing them and see how much they really do resemble the books!
I think the movies are actually very well done, considering the special effects and such, they are very good movies… I just…I just don’t like the story!! Let me tell you why!
I think Stephanie Meyer writes very well, I actually rather enjoy her way of writing! It’s the story that bothers me… The whole thing where Bella does everything Edward wants…the whole controlling relationship…his jealousy about her hanging out with the werewolf guy disguised as worry…THAT is what bothers me. This whole series of books and movies are so big that, like it or not, everyone involved in it (specially the main actors) have become role models…and I just do not think that advocating a relationship like the one portrayed in the books and, in a somewhat lighter way in the movies, is the right thing to do.
In an era filled with violent and controlling relationships, these books are just basically telling young girls that it is ok to be controlled by their boyfriends! And that’s is really a no-no for me! Having been in a controlling and sometimes even violent relationship, changing those views is very close to my heart. The whole way how Edward controls Bella, in my opinion, is just giving teenagers the idea that that is how a perfect relationship should be…and it isn’t!!! That is solely the reason why I don’t like Twilight..
I also think all of the hater comments about Kristen Stewart’s acting are way to overblown…she is suppose to act like that…have you read the books? She is supposed to be like that, doing everything he wants and not being very…well…emotional. I don’t think she’s a bad actress…I just think maybe she just has been choosing the same type of parts for some time now…I mean, do you guys remember her in that movie with Jodie Foster? She was great! Talent doesn’t just go away like that, ya know?
This post was in no way a hater post and if you like Twilight I am happy for you!! This was my own personal opinion and I did not in any way want to hurt anyone!!
Do you like Twilight? Let me know in the comments or send me a message at my Facebook Page, my Twitter! I always comment back and I would love to know if you like Twilight or not and why!
