I finally managed to drag K. to see Twilight: Eclipse on Saturday night. To keep in tune with pop culture, I read all four Twilight books, which honestly, I found to be pretty terrible. I was surprised, given that I do have a soft spot for idealistic love stories and vampires (separately), but I found the books to be rather insipid and the characters irritating. The fourth book was downright awful. Of all the books, Eclipse was my favorite and I was convinced that the movie would be decent, at least with all the fight scenes. I didn't bother to see the first two movies in theaters: I just borrowed both from the library and I'm glad I didn't waste the money. I'm not sure if it's because K. was sitting next to me and I was just imagining seeing the movie through his eyes, but Eclipse was pretty bad. It was incredibly slow and rather boring, and I found the acting / writing to be particularly cheesy. I definitely cringed during several scenes. Oh well, maybe we should have gone to see Inception instead.
