Top 10 good and bad things about Twilight from Examiner.com



Examiner.com had compiled the Top 10 things Twilight fans loved — and hated — about the Twilight movie:


No one seemed to be lukewarm about it — they either passionately loved it or, as one fan put it, “felt like committing suicide.”

Whether they detested or adored it, however, all of the fans were profuse in their reasons for why they felt the way they did. Here are the top 10 things Twilight fans hated about the movie, followed by the top 10 things fans loved.

Top 10 things Twilight fans hated about the movie

1. No chemistry between Bella and Edward

2. Poor screenwriting (one fan wrote, “The movie lost the magic that is Twilight because the screenwriting is poor.”)

3. Excruciatingly amateur special effects (especially the flying scenes which the majority of fans found embarrassingly awful)

4. The vampire makeup

5. The forest scenes between Bella and Edward — there were at least two dozen people that said the audiences were bursting into laughter at the corniness during these scenes

6. Bella and Charlie eating out every meal at the cafe

7. Bella’s character — a number of fans pointed out that Bella looked frightened the entire time and delivered her lines (even with Edward) in a monotone

8. The first kiss scene — those underpants caught a lot of flack

9. Jasper — the way he looked, his lack of lines, etc.; fans thought he was all wrong

10. The addition of scenes not included in the book — many Twi-hards didn’t feel like the new scenes added anything at all to the story

Top 10 things Twilight fans loved about the movie

1. Charlie — out of over 300 comments, there was nothing but praise for Charlie’s performance.

2. The casting of the Cullens, especially Emmett and Alice

3. The baseball scene — many fans said this scene was reproduced exactly how they imagined it

4. Edward saving Bella from the van

5. Edward saving Bella in Port Angeles

6. Mike, Jessica, and the other students at Forks High School

7. James and Victoria

8. The final fight scene

9. The prom

10. Edward and Bella in biology class (actually, this one was pretty close; only barely over 50% of the fans who specifically mentioned this scene liked it a lot; the rest thought it was horrible)
