‘Hunger Games’ Trumping ‘Twilight’

Is “The Twilight Saga” beginning to lose its grip on movie fans? The latest installment of the vampire romance finished second to “Harry Potter” in a best of the year poll for MTV's, and trailed “The Hunger Games” as the most anticipated movie of 2012. What's more, “Twilight” stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson — whose characters Bella and Edward finally wed in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 1” — lost out as best on-screen couple to Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, who played Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-Part  2”/Reuters. More here.

Question: “Hunger Games” and “Twilight” are both multi-book series. I've read them both. Ditto for C.S. Lewis' “Narnia,” Stephen King's “Gunslinger,” Larry McMurtry's “Lonesome Dove,” and, of course, Tolkien's “The Lord of the Rings.” Which is your favorite book series?

Missoula Teens In New ‘Twilight’ Film

Like millions of teenagers across America, Jessi Stobart, Madi LePiane and Allison High were all atwitter this week as they waited for Tuesday’s midnight premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” the third film in the massively popular “Twilight” series. But if the trio of Missoula friends seemed a little more excited than most, they could be excused: They’re in the movie. And if you see them walking around Wednesday with a glint of I-told-you-so in their eyes, they could be excused for that as well: They’ve finally proven to their friends that they weren’t just making up their silver-screen story/Joe Nickell, Missoulian. More here.

O’s Give ‘Twilight’ Mixed Reviews

DFO: Mrs. O & I gave mixed reviews to the “Twilight” video last night. She thought the teen-vampire movie started slow but picked up enough to be scary and earn an 8.5 out of 10. I thought it started slow and didn’t pick up enough to pull more than a 7. It’s a bit different to have a human hanging out with vegan vampires. But it’ll be more interesting if the American Indians introduced in the movie turn out to be vampire-hating werewolves in the sequels.

Question: What do you think of “Twilight” — the books or the movie?
