So glad Fark is here to be my source of all things Twilight.

Wow...someone gets easily excited 'Team Edward vs Team Jacob PHENOMENON'

Yeah, that whole thing is pretty ridiculous. It was never a question of who was going to win. Even though the wolf-kid is by far the better looking of the pair, has a thousand times more personality, treated her better, never dumped her in the deep, dark woods causing her to suffer a nervous breakdown, never attempted suicide, was acceptable to friends and family, and wouldn't have required the girl to conceive a hellspawn that would eat its way out of her uterus, or to turn into the walking undead, he was destined to lose. Yet all the teenie fans screaming "TEAM JACOB" as if by the force of their collective hysterical will they could time travel and change the outcome of books already published...

You forget that the werewolf was her age while the vampire was a 98 year old man going to high school and picking up underage girls (but he sparkled and didn't drive a van, so its cool)

Is that actually how it's depicted in the film? I know Kristen Stewart is notorious for her lack of emotion, but you'd think someone behind the scenes could spray her with a water bottle or something to simulate tears.

So was the whole "relationship" of the two leads. Hell, it was probably in their contracts. Section III, clause iv: "You two will date in real life until one month after the last movie is released theatrically, with a $1M bonus if you continue to date until after the DVD comes out."

We can only hope that maybe...just maybe...the production team gets a clue and does much, much better than the source material.

"That was not from the fans either. That was kind of, uh, marketing," Pattinson slyly revealed during our recent interview. "We're both on the same team," he joked.

While The Lost Boys was many degrees better in terms of what a vampire should be, I think that they're still kinda pretty and sissy compared to the old, original folklore, in which vampires are hideous undead things that smell awful, look half-rotted, and have faces often covered in gore with big, protruding teeth.

What we call a "vampire" these days is actually a succubus/incubus. What we call a "zombie" these days is actually closer to a vampire. And what Romero made in "Night of the Living Dead" wasn't zombies; it was ghouls.

Twilight is about an incubus, not a vampire. Same with Anne Rice's books-- Incubus and vampire got all mixed up.

If it's rotting and gross, you're a vampire's host.
If it's sparkly and pale, it's an incubus male.
If it's sexy and nude, it's a succubus, dude.

I don't know about that. What you're talking about is the original Nosferatu silent film. But Dracula in the books and the films was a suave motherfarker and there was usually some sort of romance involved, even with the Anne Rice vampires. . That doesn't mean that they had to be toothless, sparkling pussies, however.
