An Epiphany

 
It pains me to admit that it took me 4 movies to come to this personal realization: The Twilight Saga–no matter how much it earns and no matter how big the fan base–is not ideal for a big-screen adaptation. And I say this with all due respect to the filmmakers who tried and gave it their best: it’s not you, Directors, it’s the source material. And I also say that with all due respect to Stephenie Meyer. I admit I liked the books–they’re a guilty pleasure and please lower those eyebrows–but there are some books that are best left to a reader’s personal mental book-to-movie adaptation. Many people, of course, will disagree with me; I don’t mind. I’m not trying to get people to cross the line anyway. Everyone must live with their own epiphanies.
