Hype, hype, hyperdrive

My Geode Twin, Caroline, recently asked me what was up with all the hype surrounding the movie "Twilight." I have to admit, until she mentioned it, I didn't even really think that much about it. But, of course, once she put the bug in my ear, I simply HAD to look into it. So, I went to and looked it up, and was confronted with a one sentence description that literally had me LOL'ing, to the point I had to find a secluded spot to quell the guffaws.

According to IMDB:

A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire.

That's right; falling in love with a vampire is now a high risk endeavor. And it used to be so innocent and quirky to fall in love with a vampire, before AIDS came along and ruined the whole living/undead coupling thing.

But, I'll just let Caroline and myself do the rest of the tearing down of this almost-certain box office bomb:

Ryan says: I just LOL'ed so hard, I had to leave my cubicle.

Caroline says: At what?

Ryan says: At the one sentence teaser IMDB gives for "Twilight."

Ryan says: "A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire."

Ryan says: Really? That's not a low-risk venture?

Caroline says: I bet her license plate is VAMPLUV

Ryan says: BLDSCKR.

Caroline says: BATTY

Ryan says: Honest to God, with a tagline like "A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire," you know all the hype is just intended to mask what is sure to be a Grade A cinematic stinker.

Caroline says: Twilight: This movie bites!

Ryan says: Twilight: This movie sucks so hard!

But the kids don't care if its a bad movie, in fact, they seem to like it even more. Because, as all older farts like me know, kids have no taste. Now get the hell off my lawn before I fill your backside with rock salt from my shotgun!

My girlfriend (who is an old kid at 29) is looking forward to this abomination and, in preparation, has bought and read the entire quadrilogy of books in the Twilight series in the last week and a half. Ugghhh.
