Mel Brooks parodies are filled with win and awesome.

Scary Movie and its sequels/spinoffs, not so much.

It has been rather hit and miss; some were good, and some were pretty bad. I agree with Scary movie being good, but the sequels to that got worse and worse, and the ones like Teen Movie were pretty bad.

Honestly, Twilight is pretty laughable all by itself, and the jokes pretty much write themselves, so even if they made the obvious ones, it probably still would be worth seeing. In the trailer, the chihauhua thing and the shove-to-the-face of the Edward girl, just cracked me up, heh.

I'm surprised Gin, someone such as yourself who likes to make fun out of things doesn't like movies dedicated to making fun out of things.

I'm easily amused so I'll probably like this, I tend to like parody films, epic movie, superhero movie and scary movie were good in my opinion but Disaster movie was exactly what it said, a disaster. The jokes were bland and boring.

The chihuahua thing in the Vampire Sucks trailer made me lol though.

I like to make fun of things all the time, not just when I think I can makes tons of money out of it. Parody movies are just Family Guy humor, and I'm really tired of it.

Even by the standards of Scary Movie and its spinoffs this is feeling very much like a cheap shot.

I mean, why in the Nine Hells should I be paying and going to the theatre to see people make fun of Twilight in an obvious, stupid way, with hammy acting by passionless actors? I could, you know, go on the fucking internets and get far better jokes. Or I could bring up the topic with my friends. Or random strangers.

Ripoff.

if I only saw the first twilight movie, and didn't read any of the books, will I still be able to understand most of the references in the movie? It looks pretty funny from the trailer, but I'm afraid that I won't get 90% of the jokes.
Does this movie also make fun of TruBlood, because I think I saw some subtle jokes in the trailer

I haven't seen any of the movies, but I have heard enough about the books and movies that I can get laughs out of it. Most of my information comes from Spoony's reviews of them, which I can post links to, but I think you should have a decent enough understanding of Twilight in general just from second-hand information, to get most of it (vampires sparkle, etc.).

http://spoonyexperiment.com/2009/11/...2-09-new-moon/

http://spoonyexperiment.com/2010/07/...clipse-review/

I think the movie parodies the Eclipse book/movie the most, but will probably deal with most of the series. And now I'm off to watch those video logs in the links I posted again, hehe....

So... I looked Twilight, and certainly impression of them remain not so good... To me have advised to watch this parody. It was pleasant to me much more, than the original.

Erm.. no thank you.

Vampire movies aren't my cup of tea, especially Twilight, which is the biggest pile of crap ever brought to the big screen. This involves Twilight? Taking the piss or not.

Still. No Thanks.

Best parody I ever saw of twilight, would be this article (link down below)

Image taken from the link I put up, which is the Oatmeal
Here's a good spoof of Twilight:
Straight from the Oatmeal!

Carefully read this.
I can guarantee you it will bring you laughter until you cry.

That image alone makes me lol simply due to the fact the directors of Twilight just wanted to make fan-girls scream by putting "Sexy" scenes of Edward and Jacob...

The "Movie" movies suck ass. Simple as that. The only thing that was actually funny, was the Scary Movie series, and even those sucked worse as more sequels were piled on. I'm all for humor, but this already has "Flop" written all over it. This developers team likes to always poke fun at everything that is popular, and while I like that idea, they don't pull it off in the right way. This new movie coming out, no matter my hate for Twilight, is something I'm not going to see. Hell I actually watched the first Twilight movie and I think it will be better than this weird crap coming up...

Parodies are simply losing their humorous flair nowadays... I miss Mel Brooks...

You know, it all makes sense now. Bella is deliberately made to be a blank slate, a role you can slip into and pretend you're her, and have this perfect guy. Kinda like role-playing. I've always said it's basically female porn. They get off on having a super perfect boyfriend that can basically do no wrong.

Kaze, your post and link explains the phenomena perfectly...

Twilight is like soccer. People run around for 2 hours, no one scores, and millions of fans insist you just don't understand.

Its kinda like Vampire Knight where the female lead on that is basically clueless on who she should be in love with. So the two vampire boy leads try to "Hit" on her, and I mean "Hit" in both ways

@ Kyero Fox: Maybe someone dislikes you to the extent that they would for some reason "Report" your thread as "Not-Needed" but that is a 0% chance...
mighta been a Twilight fan

and they would have had a good reason to delete it. and if they have that big of a grudge, they should seek help.
