84. June 28, 2010 - Twilight (2008)

Yeah, yeah, I know. It's not a great movie and they're certainly not great books, but I can't help really liking it. That being said, this is in no way an accurate or even flattering representation of teenage love. The important thing to remember with these books/movies is that they're fantasy. Everything about them is heightened and dramatized for effect and to fit in with the genre. Bella and Edward stare at each other smolderingly but that's because they are ultimate star-crossed lovers. Buffy and Angel used to stare at each other that way too, but you never saw teenage fangirls proclaiming that they wanted to be just like them. Don't aspire to be like Bella Swan - just enjoy the movie.

My original entry is here.
