I’m thankful for a few things regarding the latest Twilight movie. It’s easily the best of the bunch so far, featuring better performances and a couple of scenes I was actually able to watch without wanting to hurt fellow movie-goers. I also didn’t want to punch myself in the face as much. However, it’s still one of the year’s worst films. While Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are slightly more tolerable, everybody else is still stuck in constant mope mode. The plot involves bad vampires forming an army to fight good vampires, with the wolf boys offering help to the good vampires to fight off the bad vampires. That’s all nonsense, but the love triangle between the main stars is actually quite interesting and well-done, giving me hope that the final two installments (the last book will be split in two films) may be watchable.
