Welcome to the Twilight Saga. More than six years have passed since the premiere of the very first Twilight film in 2008. Since then, the series has grown to become one of the most popular movie franchises of all time. The first five films have collectively made more than $1 billion at the box office, and counting.

The popularity of the Twilight films can be attributed to the fact that they tell the story of a young woman’s obsession with a handsome, enigmatic man. The films follow Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who along with her girlfriends, Alice (Taylor Lautner) and Rosalie (Melissa George), spends her summer waiting for her senior year in high school following a bout of food poisoning that forces her to stay at home and recuperate. Her three young men friends show up at her place one evening, interrupting her sickbed reverie, and the six of them set out on a fun-filled summer of youth-inspired dates, picnics, and midnight swims. While each film focuses on a different character’s story, they all begin and end with Bella and Edward Cullen’s (Pattinson and Stewart) forbidden love affair.

Bella’s love story is one of the most interesting stories in Twilight. The heroine is fiercely independent yet also completely infatuated with her handsome, brooding ex-boyfriend, Edward. The question is: will Bella choose a conventional life with a man she’s been dating for most of her adult life, or will she choose the adventurous road less traveled and succumb to her teenage heart’s desire?

The answer to these questions will be revealed in the eagerly awaited new installment of Twilight, On the Road to Breaking Dawn – Part 2. When it comes to the Twilight Saga, it’s hard to believe that it’s already been ten years since Twilight was first released. The story of Bella and Edward’s bittersweet romance has become so iconic that it’s been featured on countless items of clothing, bedsheets, and even a beach towel. If you’re a fan of the Twilight films, then there’s no question that you’ll fall in love with the fascinating world and unforgettable characters created by Stephenie Meyer.

Streaming Is The Future Of Movie-going

The year is now 2020, and as life returns to some semblance of normalcy, people are looking for ways to spend their time again. One of the ways they’ve chosen is to return to the cinema, the place they felt so connected to while watching a movie. More and more people are opting to stream films rather than wait for DVD’s or visit the cinema. The demand for streaming films has increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic (which occurred in the middle of 2020) and the desire to avoid crowds. When the world is a mess, you need your sanctuary – your movies.

This change in habits was spurred on by the release of Netflix’s Stranger Things. Although, not necessarily a phenomenon unique to this show, the combination of social distancing and nostalgic yearning for bygone days certainly contributed to its popularity. Stranger Things is the tale of a boy coming of age in the 1980s. The main storyline explores the mysteries of the Upside Down, a dark and desolate dimension that poses a threat to the world of the living. It is not only a superb piece of television, but one that has encouraged people to explore themes that challenge our traditional notions of reality and how we interact with it. These types of stories are what made the series so relatable and accessible to a wide audience, including those who had never before set foot in a movie theatre.

Although the demand for movies has decreased, it has not disappeared. People are simply seeking alternatives to spend their leisure time. One of the best things about the recent resurgence in popularity of independent cinema is that it has encouraged smaller film-makers to flourish. The independent film industry is now enjoying a golden age, with more and more talented, creative individuals finding financial and personal success through their films. These stories of individuality, creativity, and triumph are what make the cinema so special, and it’s important to remember that many of these films would not have been possible without the dedicated fans that kept the faith and supported the medium during these challenging times.

What Is The Future Of Love – And Kissing – In Movies?

One of the defining features of the Twilight films is Bella’s passionate devotion to Edward, her fierce protectiveness, and her unwavering loyalty. While these three factors undoubtedly make Bella a unique and wonderful character, it is fair to say that she’s not exactly the type of woman that most men would want to lose their souls for. Her unwavering love for Edward is evident even during their breakup, when she clings to her lost love, refusing to move on with her life. It’s an amazing display of loyalty, especially as it is contrasted with her friends’ betrayal. This aspect of Bella’s character arguably makes her one of the most relatable fictional heroes of all time.

Whether you consider yourself to be a diehard Twilight fan or are merely familiar with the series, it’s undeniable that Meyer created a literary anti-heroine that broke the mold of traditional female heroines. Before Twilight, most literary heroes were white, heterosexual men, and it was rare to see a prominent male role model portrayed as a compassionate, embracing homo sapiens. The fact that Edward is a vampire, and not just some ordinary bloodsucker, adds a layer of interest and intrigue to the story. People love to debate whether vampires are really motivated by their dark desires or by some higher calling. With or without the bloodsucker’s enigmatic charm, Edward stands as a unique and fascinating character, and it’s easy to see why the Twilight series has become so popular. Vampires are nothing new in literature, but the fact that they’re presented as relatable, human-like creatures rather than archetypes makes all the difference. For that matter, one of the hallmarks of the series is its exploration of contemporary romance and young adult love, themes that were long considered inappropriate for young teens.

The fact that Edward is a vampire only functions as a plot device in the context of the Twilight series. Themes such as lust, temptation, and forbidden fruit run throughout all the films, and there is a heavy focus on the romantic elements of the story. Despite this, it is clear that Edward’s vampirism is something that he takes very seriously, and it causes him to view sex and intimacy in a very different light. One would assume that having a drinking-bloated, disease-ridden body would make intimacy a particularly distasteful prospect. Whether it’s an element of BDSM or a deeply held belief that humans are inferior to vampires, the fact that Edward sees himself as a superior breed of being makes him a fascinating – and thoroughly intimidating – character.

Will The Vibration Of A Phone Cause Damage?

During a recent trip to the cinema, one of the most enjoyable aspects was the fact that I wasn’t distracted by the phone. It had been a long time since I’d visited a movie theatre, and even longer since I’d gone to one that wasn’t equipped with extra-strong screenwriters and an A-list of famous stars. It might sound like a tall order, but that’s what made the trip so special. The fact that my attention was entirely fixed on the cinematic experience, and not on my phone or its many other distractions, made it feel like a real treat. One might argue that mobile phones and digital distractions have made it harder for us to fully detach from the world around us. We’re always a couple of taps away from obtaining immediate gratification, whether it’s something as enjoyable as watching a film or connecting with an old friend via social media. It’s not just phones that cause distraction either, as someone sitting next to you in the theatre might be texting or using social media, or that person in the row ahead might be playing a video game. It might seem like a luxury to have the ability to tune out from the world, but it’s more than that. It’s essential. The fact that we can use technology to enhance our lives makes it all the more crucial that we learn to live in the present, appreciating what is happening around us, instead of being distracted by what might happen in the future or what we’ve read or seen before. Even the act of driving requires focus and attention, and it would be a shame to waste even a second of the journey. This is why we need our movies.
