Why have vampires caught our fancy suddenly.. Post Twilight and new moon an entire generation is besotted and fascinated by the mythical creatures whose erstwhile image was a rather intimidating Dracula.. In fact the response to the films makes me feel the proverbial blue moon will soon give way to the new moon !! 😆 Stephanie Myer is busy cashing in upon the fame of the Twilight series..Having heard and read about it my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to watch Twilight and New Moon with my siblings.. I wasn’t able to fathom what the films intended conveying !!..What I couldn’t understand was why the confused and helpless Bella is either attracted only to a white as a ghost vampire ( Robert Pattison who has girls across the globe gushing over him) or werewolves ?? It’s not as if she didn’t have decent enough humans around !! I also couldn’t understand how could people get all moony over the romance between a vampire and the willowy perpetually in distress damsel !! My younger siblings lapped up both the films and looked at me as if either I was a little soft in the head and gave me those you’re too old to understand so keep mum glares !! Perhaps I am really getting on in years and can’t quite comprehend how the books and movies caught the fancy of an entire generation !! It is time to move on to more sedate stuff perhaps ..Sigh !!
