    I thought Watchmen was a great movie. There's already a thread about it.

    And about the hating Twilight thing, everyone is entitled to an opinion. Sometimes you really don't need a reason to hate something or be disappointed by it. Imo it just wasn't that good, simple as that.

    Decide for yourself. I can't compare them because they are good in their own ways... I'd say overall I enjoyed Batman more

    no it just annoys me that someone is willing to base a book on a movie...just because the movies was low budget doesnt mean the book is. i mean come on...i ask people why they dont like twilight and i get a "cuz the movie sucked"...that didnt answer my question. I don't really care if ya'll hate twilight or not...i was just curious as to why someone would hate a book. as long as a book is good enough to capture an audience then its a good book to me. Doesn't matter if its not my type of book or not. as long as it got someone somewhere interested in reading its good. And if i was asking about the twilight movie then i would have posted this in the movie thread, but i didn't so therefore she got a rude remark.

    Well, I'd say the movie could probably be used to justify a dislike for the book. If someone watched it and thought the story was bad, that would mean they thought the book's story was bad as well. So it's not -entirely- groundless.

    I find her writing to be very complex and descriptive. My favorite book is Jane Eyre, so it's not like I'm a simpleton that needs someone to dumb down books for me. Meyer writes in a different style, but it's not immature. You want immature writing, try some of the lesser known forgotten realms books...they're...horrific.

    I have heard this several times before, though, and I do wonder if you've tried the entire book Twilight, and if you've also tried The Host. The Host was geared more toward adults, and I enjoyed it more. :)

    With that said, I must admit, though, that I found the last book to be an absolutely ridiculous piece of literature. It was like she gave up and started writing fan fiction...terrible, silly fan fiction.

    Frankly, I think it's a matter of taste, not a matter of "bad writing" as I have heard it claimed to be.

    It was pretty good. I had unbelievably low expectations, but it surprised me. The trailer made it look angsty and ridiculous. I must admit, the scene where they go into the woods and he reveals he's a vampire...I found myself rolling my eyes the entire time. Other than that, I really was impressed.

    Everyone knows that movies are never the same as the books. The books always turn out better. So it is groundless to base a book off the movie where they leave out parts. Look at the Movie Eragon...that movie was a total waste yet the book was extremely good. or Narnia those movies weren't nearly as good as the book. does that mean the book sucked?

    Oh man, insults from someone who thinks Eragon was a good book is just wasted on me. Unless ofc you're trying to make me laugh.

    umad? urmad

    Incidentally, Twilight's writing was terrible, as per my thread. I wrote better when I was 13, not even joking. I liked it solely because of sexy boys.

    Hence the reason I edited the second post prior to this one. Unfortunately you've blown up everything all by yourself.

    Infact I don't believe I actually ever commented on the Twilight book. I only passed judement on you, after you did so on me.

    I lol at the fact you recognise the fact you're wasting time on me, yet you've done it.

    I'm not mad because people dont like twilight. I was honestly just curious as to why. I'm mad because some jerk decided to get on and tell me that i was crying because i was curious as to how someone could hate a book so much. then he had the nuts to judge me based on what i like for books. thats what im mad about

    Uh, he didn't actually do that. Seems to me more like you're mad 'cause Met has a tendency to tell it like it is. If you're expecting him to soften up his comments to you (and he's said way worse to me and others on multiple occasions) just because you're the new girl, you're not getting it, sorry. So don't worry, he isn't singling you out.

    Also, you started with the whole snide "Don't be jealous." FYI more than a few girls around here think he's pretty cute.
