Another hilarious post about Twighlight

I must admit, I very much want to see this movie due to the snarky reviews in the New York Times and New York Magazine.

NY Mag's "28 Reasons That 'Twighlight' the Movie is Better than 'Twighlight' the Book" is so funny. And comes with a slideshow!

Here's a tidbit:

"We're sure plenty of superfans of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series will complain loudly about the movie adaptation of the first book, Twilight, after they leave tonight's midnight screenings. They won't like the casting, or they'll be upset the filmmakers left out their favorite line, or they'll think the sparkle effect looked stupid.

But let us disagree in advance. As far as we're concerned, Catherine Hardwicke's movie of Twilight does what most movie adaptations can't: It dramatically improves the book it's based on. It's more exciting, it's more fun, and — most important — it's way less annoying than Meyer's gazillion-selling blockbuster. (The sparkle effect, though, did look better in our imagination.)

How can you say such a thing? indignant Twilight fans will howl. Let us count the ways, in our spoiler-filled slideshow."

I might have to take back my vow to watch this On Demand and go see it in the movie theater...
