Having no real desire to see it, it’s been sitting around here for weeks. Last night I popped it in the DVD player, figured if it sucked I’d just have it on in the background, then I can finally return it.

Ok, it’s a bit cheesy, a bit cliche, and Robert Pattinson is still teen angsting all over the place, but he speaks…you know, acts…has actual lines that don’t involve eternal adoration for Bella. Oh, and he doesn’t do that nonsense sparkly sh*t.
