Twilight: anyone reading it?

02 September 2010 - 01:01 AM

Being a big fan of vampires (and, specially, of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles), I checked the Twilight series out, to see how it was. I got the first book as a present, when it was almost only known in the USA and hadn't turned into the huge fuss it is now, so I read it just like another book. I hated the main character (I can't stand Bella...) but it was sort of decent and I kind liked Edward so I got the three others, as they became available.... And got increasingly disappointed. In the end, I winded up almost hating the series! I hated how they twisted it all and it all became increasingly stupid and hard to believe and... Gah. The last book would have made me laugh if it didn't annoy me as much as it did!

That's why I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw they were making a MOVIE out of the books, that they dared to compare these... "things" to Anne Rice's work and to Harry Potter and that it was becoming such a popular product. I still can't believe it. @[email protected]

I haven't watched the movies cause I wouldn't have paid money to watch something based on a book that bad. Movies are usually worse than books and if the book's bad... :P I intend to download them someday, just to see if they are as bad as they say and as bad as the book... But I haven't even bothered cause part of me can't bring itself to waste hard drive space on them. LOL.

I know there's a LOT of people who love this series and I truly respect everyone's tastes.. I mean, we're all entitled to like whatever we want and it all depends on the point of view. But, personally, I think the Twilight series is a big bluff and I think that the fact that's become so popular speaks about the times we're living in. :(

Book was terrible too, I have absolutely no clue why I read the whole series. ._.

Thank you for sharing that link! I enjoyed reading it and I couldn't agree more. LOL.

And I don't know how or why I ended up reading the whole series either. xD

The WORST anime you've ever seen!

I guess it all depends on your tastes and on what genres you like/dislike, what kind of stories/characters you like/dislike, etc. But, personally, I think one of the worst animes I've ever watched is "Yami to boushi to hon no tabibito", a crappy 13 episodes, yuri anime that was pure trash. I only watched it because I love the seiyuu Miki Shinichirou and he played a role there, so I got the series and decided to watch it all... But it was so bad, I couldn't bring myself to watch ep. 13, cause the character played by Miki Shinichirou died on episode 12 and I couldn't care less about the ending of that pigswill! :P

I'm not considering dubbed versions, though, cause I guess that also depends on your tastes (some people hate Japanese voices and some others, like myself, hate most dubbed versions, cause they pretty much suck in every sense). Only thinking in terms of plot, characters and stuff like that.... I think the above mentioned series gets my n1 on this. It just sucks so much!

How to get free NX cash cards

31 August 2010 - 01:54 AM

Gosh, if this works out, I'll be the happiest person on Earth! I need to get a store permit but they won't allow me to use Paypal anymore (I'm from Chile and they seem to consider my country a "high risk" one now... _)... And I don't really have any buddies in game, let alone people I could bother asking them to get me NX Cards. *-*

Let's hope this works for me too~~

Thanks for the tip!
