I am going to re-watch and review the Twilight films for this blog, one by one.
The first Twilight film always felt like a decent if inconsequential teen drama to me; but in terms of impact on popular culture this franchise always punched way above its weight anyway. […]
God-awful European attempt to produce a horror-comedy. This 1971 farce is entirely devoid of any redeeming features, and thus a complete waste of its cast. […]
With season 2, the show is leaving the plot of the original film behind and ventures out into unknown territory. The writing of some characters struggles with these changes a bit, and an abundance of new characters means that we do often spend not enough time with each of them. […]

This sequel to the 1987 film is burdened by a whole bunch of problems, making it a merely passable “also-ran”. […]
