Really OCC?

Recommended Posts

I am less concerned with OCC reporting the review than I am with a hardware review site reviewing this movie. Wonder if there is anything going on at Tweaktown that we should know?

Twilight is actually quite educational. I never learned as much about Mormonism than from anywhere else.

 

From http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/06/24/mormon-influence-imagery_n_623487.html

 

The "Twilight" novels and film franchise have religious associations, too--but most of them come from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons).

 

-- Mormon believe angels are resurrected beings of flesh and bone. The most familiar is Moroni, who stands high atop Mormon temples, trumpet in hand. The Book of Mormon says Moroni was a fifth-century prophet who visited founder Joseph Smith in 1823. Smith described Moroni as radiating light and "glorious beyond description."

 

Bella describes her vampire boyfriend Edward as an angel whom she can't imagine "any more glorious." Edward's skin sparkles in the sunlight, and he visits Bella's bedroom at night. But Mormon angels don't have wings; in the "Twilight" film, Edward sits in the science lab, the outstretched wings of a stuffed white owl just over his shoulders.

hey if you think about it.... and stretch your imagination a bit, vampires and werewolves are like the overclocked machines. Regular humans are unclocked PCs and vampires/werewolves are overclocked PCs :P:P

 

So what's stock? :P Wasn't Twilight aimed at girls since the majority of films being produced were aimed at boys?

If you are a hetero male and enjoy the twilight movies just cut your own nads off and feed them to the fish.

Stop trying to cover it up, I'm sure there's secretly a Twilight section in the staff section where all of you debate on whether Team Edward or Team Jacob would win against the Cubs :P.
