Twilight, the feature film version of the immensely popular teen-vampire book, opens this weekend. It will be huge, it will top the weekend box office. I’m happy for the parties involved, because this is always good news for the film industry. Big congratulations to new distributor Summit Entertainment, who wisely brokered the film rights for this property. This film is going to singlehandedly make Summit a major player, virtually overnight. Here’s the thing: I a have zero intention of ever seeing Twilight. Not because I didn’t read the books (I still enjoy the Harry Potter movies even without the source material) and it’s not because I’m trying to walk against the current. I just have no desire to see this movie. I respect my friends who wanna see it, I respect you, if you’re planning to see it. There’s just nothing appealing to me, about sitting in a movie theater to watch a goth/teen love story. Lost Boys is all I will ever need in that realm. Sorry.
