With us talking about Buffy the Vampire during class, I felt it was necessary to compare that series to the currently popular Twilight movies. With over 10 million views racked up, you can surely tell the movies as well as the books have quite a fan following.
Although I'm ashamed to say I have watched both Twilight and New Moon, I'll tell you that I only watched it for pure comedic entertainment. I mean, some of the lines the actors say are ridiculous. Also, what kind of vampire glitters in the sunlight or jumps around at super high speeds? Yet, I understand how the movies appeal to teenage girls as a result of the actors Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson being shirtless half the time and the plot of a teenage girl falling in love with a vampire because (I'm sure so many girls in the world identify with that).
However, what's more interesting is the violent aspect of the film. Like Buffy, the Twilight series gets increasingly darker as the movies progress. The violence just looks way too silly and computer generated. It's an interesting contrast to the Buffy episodes and violence that is depicted there, even though it's on television.
