    So, SO close to perfection. Some of the visuals were almost too ambitious for me and kind of took me out of the story. Nevertheless, this was an insightful and kinda harrowing look at what it means to be alive, conscious, etc. All the big questions. Whether intentionally or not, this story (and by extension screenplay) owes a great debt to Lovecraft.

    Ooookay yeah this one sucks. Just an extended romantic drama without as much redeeming werewolf and vampire action. Also the imprinting shit is such a weird plot device. Like, too weird to overlook. Seems like the author didn’t really fully think about the ramifications. Whatever.

    Once again, blown away by how much I actually enjoyed this. The werewolves look fucking sick, the action was fun, the painfully bad acting is just endearing rather than annoying at this point. I really dig this franchise. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    What a fucking film. Really glad I finally got around to this one. There’s nothing I can praise about this movie that hasn’t already been praised a thousand times over (not to mention the countless awards it won) but it really is a great exhibition of modern thriller sensibilities. Since someone’s probably already wondering, it’s not a 5/5 because I didn’t find the visual aesthetic as captivating as every other element of the film.

    This is it. I have watched this movie close to a dozen fucking times, and I haven’t ever been able to continue watching the series. But this is it. I’m doing it. I’m watching every Twilight movie. 
     
    Hopefully. 

    Really, this movie ain’t even half as bad as some of you snobs act like it is. Horrible acting but idk, maybe Bella has clinical social anxiety? And you’re laughing at her? A girl with a mental disorder? Shame on you. …
