    I understand that the Twilight saga has a huge fanbase. I myself am an avid fan of the Star Wars franchise. But I'm getting to the point where I just want to puke from all the New Moon hype. I literally hear about this movie 10 - 15 times a day between TV. radio, and print ads. It's just a @#%^*&% movie people!!! It'll be interesting to see peoples reactions when the actual movie falls short of what the hype machine promises. I'm not a troll, i'm just really sick of overhype for this film. Anyone else share my sentiment?

    I agree, it has gone a little over the top with the advertising, and you know things are bad when even local morning news talk shows are having a 'twilight week' ... yes they actually did that here.

    Yeah, I am sick of this movie but I am going to watch it anyway. I dont care about those actors/actress but I like vampires.

    Me too a little bit, 2 of my friends made me watch Twilight this past Friday (they were girls obviously) and to tell you the truth it wasn't really that bad for a chick flick. The vampires are stupid though, what Vampire sparkles in the sun? So goddamn stupid.

    Twilight is just fanservice for girls

    Yeah for Weak minded, weak spirited, and misguided girls

    Lets get some strong female roles in here (which they need to see) and cut the hearthrob crap.

    About as sick as I am of hearing how it's as good as Harry Potter, when it's not because it's targeted at teenie bopper girls while Harry Potter is for everyone. And I am just as sick of hearing about CoD: MW2, just another shitty mediocre generic shooter.

    Seriously, why all the girls I know swoon for a made-up character I'll never understand. He's a vampire. He sparkles in the sunlight. And now there's a second movie out. Why, oh why, must there be yet another movie about him? Let's get serious here, Edward's a damn cockblock, am I right? Girls want their guys to be "more like Edward", and we're like "Why would we want to be like a little fairy?"... it makes no sense. I've actually heard of girls dumping their boyfriends because they weren't "like Edward". The sooner most girls snap into reality and realize Edward's not real, and that guys are not going to become him, the better.

    Taylor Lautner is hot. That's why.

    But honestly, it is truly over advertised. There's even a magazine dedicated to Twilight. I get that it's popular and all, but hey, someone has to draw the line somewhere..

    Sometimes, not understanding girls is a good thing.

    I don't let myself swoon over some Hollywood celebrity, because I don't think good looks are something to admire. What are good looks, besides being an accident of birth? How many of us can have control over the way we look? Instead of idolizing an actors because they're "hot", why not focus on their acting instead?

    All rhetorical questions, of course.

    I've never watched Twilight, and I don't intend to anytime soon.

    I hate that movie sooo much and I have not even watched it,its the fact that I hate men without shirts on. Nothing against them actor/model,just the movie and the director.

    So you don't goto the beach or swimming?

    On topic, people obsess over things far too easily and over the top. I mean any sane person can tell its just the authors fantasies growing up in book form.

    I agree for the most part; other than the fact that you have a lot of control over your appearance.

    Just watched the first again last night. Super cheese. If you can see past the pretty people and blue screen filter the acting ranks with Cody Devereaux from Conan O'Brien

    By appearance I meant physical features, not attire and such.
