Hollywood Reporter has the word that “Twilight” has jumped on the date recently abdicated by “The Half Blood Prince” and will now screen to megabucks on November 21st.
I took the journalistic approach of researching the books by having a brief AIM conversation with my much, much younger sister who seems to eat up that sort of shit. I tried to tell her that, if she wants to learn about vampires she need look further than “Near Dark” but she’s been taken in by the “Twilight”-masses.
“I bet you don’t even know what happens to a vampire in sunlight,” she said to me.
“They die,” I shot back.
“No,” she said, “They sparkle.”
Seriously. What the Hell are they teaching kids these days? Personally, I blame J.K. Rowling for both abandoning November and for encouraging kids to read in the first place.
