    It wasnt made for guys. Its a love story and guys dont care about that but girls love it. My girlfriend has gone to see Twilight multiple times and loves it.

        Which is a funny movie and entertaining, but hardly one of great quality.

        You seem to be under the impression that because something is entertaining it is of quality. Quite the opposite. Things can be absolutely awful in quality, yet entertaining.

        Mallcop falls under neither.

          Im going to see it in IMAX this weekend. Pretty excited after the early reviews suggest that its Cameron's best.

            I kinda want to see it, just because it's like a giant car wreck. I expect it to be a let down of monumental proportions, yet I can't help but watch it to see for myself.

            It's all about low expectations, that way if it's good, I will be more impressed.

              That is just sexist. Guys can't love a good love story? That's why I still list What Dreams May Come as Robin Williams' second best film right, or why I loved Leon, the fountain and requiem. There's a difference between a good love story and twilight.

                  What movies would you describe as great quality?

                    It's not sexist if its the truth. I bet if you somehow found the ratio of which sex went to see Twilight as well as The Blind Side that it would be overwhelming in favor of females.

                      And that makes it any good as a love story? The fact that teen age girls who still don't even know what love is flocked to see wolf boy take off his shirt?

                        Because a movie is based off of love means it wasnt made for guys? Uh I have no problem with romance, what I do have a problem with is awful literature stupid people take up and proclaim to be amazing, make a cult following of it, and then have a movie filled with horrible acting, effects, awful directing and people will pay more for it than TDK. That movie is not awful because of romance, or it wasnt made for guys, the entire thing is just plain awful, no matter how nice you make ****, its still ****.

                        • I want to hear how Twilight can even be considered a love story when you compare it to something like What Dreams May Come. Because it made bank?

                            It wasnt just teenage girls that went to see Twilight. Girls from 15-45 went and saw the movie.

                              Because in the story, the characters fall in love within a week of hanging out, hence forth true love.

                                While I'm not a big movie savant, I was more offering an explanation as to why movies would make money despite not being of high quality. I may not be big on movies, but I do feel confident in my ability to understand and describe society. It's the same reason Ugg boots, beanie babies, crocs, etc. have all been so popular and made money. It has nothing to do with quality.

                                But if I had to answer, I'd say Shawshank Redemption, Reservoir Dogs, Fight Club, and while it isn't very popular, I personally enjoyed Motorcycle Diaries and thought it was quality, to name a few that I've seen, which isn't a whole lot.
