FEARnet: Top Five New Year’s Resolutions For Twilighters

January 7, 2010 at 9:26 AM (New Moon)

Fearnet has this awesome list of New Year’s resolutions for Twilighters.

Tired of the Twilight haters? Here are five key resolutions to make your 2010 another awesome year in unabashed Twilight obsession.

1. Resolve to think critically about Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.

Sun Tzu advised us to know ourselves and our enemy, and that’s where we should begin. We know why we love our sparkly vampires – the romance, the longing, the perfectly coiffed Robert Pattinson – but is there something to the criticism spewed by non-fans? Is New Moon anti-feminist? (Maybe-kinda-sorta, depending on how you see it.) Why does Twilight have a pro-abstinence message? (Stephenie Meyer’s Mormon. Get over it!) Make your own pro-Twilight debates stronger by knowing who you’re arguing against and what they have to say because, let’s face it, the Twilight films are fun but imperfect. And as a wise group of animated soldiers once said, knowing is half the battle.

2. Resolve to expand your horror movie horizons.

Yes, sparkly vampires and mega-hot teen wolves are our own personal brand of horror movie heroin. But hey, we might also like other kinds of recreational narcotics, metaphorically speaking. (Apologies for the inappropriate comparison, but Stephenie Meyer started it.) In all seriousness, the world of Twilight could be a gateway to discovering the terrors that await our senses in the larger realm of horror. Want to kick the sexy up a notch? Try True Blood. Like your werewolves hairy and hunky? Watch for Benicio del Toro’s The Wolf Man. And maybe, slowly, you’ll inch your way up to (or back to) more macabre horror delights, the kind of truly terrifying tales where vampire boys and girls really bite.
