Critic Review - Arizona Daily Star

I'm glad I saw Twilight for one reason: It made the phrase jump the shark obsolete, to be potentially replaced with The vampires are playing baseball.

Phil: love your reviews. Totally disagree w/ your review of Twilight. Read the book. You%u2019ll have a better understanding of the actual story (baseball scene is important, but it%u2019s not the be-all, end-all of the story) and maybe even a better understanding of women since it%u2019s told from a woman%u2019s perspective. I will tell you that women of all ages are enchanted by Edward because he%u2019s a gentleman who truly loves Bella. That%u2019s something we all want%u2026

Isn't Meyer from Phoenix? Your review (of the premise of the story, which by the way you completely missed) is so scathing that it makes me think that you have some personal ax-to-grind against Meyer and/or Meyer's story.
Just a thought.

That might be the greatest phrase in the history of cinematic critique.

your an idiot.
i can admit that it wasnt an unbelievable film but this film was made for fans of the books (mostly teenage girls) and not old, cranky, male critics!

the cast and crew continuously said "oh, well were doing this for you guys, the fans of the books".
