    I was being sarcastic.

    I meant that a year ago everyone was getting wet over Twilight, then a few people started to hate it and now everyones like 'OH yeah twilight is the biggest **** evaaa etc etc' , hence why I put 'cool', it seems to be 'fad/trend' to hate it.
    Well tbh I think people are so pathetic. That they feel the need to follow in a trend. I loved Twilight but not because everyone else did at the time.

    I really don't understand this trend bull****, why can't people just either like/dislike something without it becoming some sort of sheep affair

    I've only read the first book so I don't like to judge it, but I know before all my friends were like 'ZOMG Edward Cullen, oh I want their relationship,so dreamy' and now everyone claims it to be the disgrace of the earth, I'm sure all the people who pretend to hate it watch/read it in secret still though haha.

    To be honest, the books are good although I have not even finished reading the first book yet :P What makes it worse is the film and the casts - they are boring, can't act and just sell their looks to be honest. And that is what makes me not like Twilight.

    I liked it because I liked the story and I thought the books were very good, although I only finished the twilight book after I'd seen the film. Also, there's a pretty good-looking cast...in particular Taylor Lautner :p: New Moon and Eclipse were so much better than Twilight, which was quite boring when I watched it a while ago!

    I've heard the books are better.

    The hype will probably end when something else comes out.

    Never seen it, don't plan to see it, don't want to see it.

    I won't ever understand the obsession with that Pattinson guy, nobody seemed to care when he was in Harry Potter so what's the difference.

    Basic wish fulfilment, the motivation behind most terrible fiction. Same reason a lot of guys enjoy superhero movies and the exaggerated macho antics on display in action films like Crank, Rambo, etc, except instead of playing on the male desire for strength and power, it plays on the fantasy of 'the perfect boyfriend/husband/whatever'. It's a shame it's written so terribly, but if people enjoy it, they enjoy it. :dontknow:

    However, I'm bored of Twilight now and now I love the Vampire Diaries for many reasons. Can' wait for every Friday to watch an episode, whereas Twilight does nothing for me now; except that I think I was stupid being obsessed with it.
    this.
    i loved it loads, and then the films came out and everyone became obsessed and it got old. i got tired of people loving the 'film twilight' - the **** acting and differences from the book. they ruined it, now its been overplayed and too many fans, too many articles, once you big something up that much, it loses its original flare.

    Coldplay are a damned good band. I've never understood why it became fashionable to hate on them.

    Well, he was quoting Peep Show, but it's probably to do with their perceived 'sissyness' and the mediocrity of X and Y, the overwrought, overplayed 'Fix You' in particular. There are certainly worse bands around at the moment.

    Yeah I know, but if anything that just shows how pervasive the sentiment is in society. :p: Parachutes and Rush of Blood are fantastic albums, and while X & Y was a bit disappointing I think Viva la Vida was definitely a step back in the right direction.
