The only TWILIGHT/NEW MOON-related post I will ever make

Genevieve Valentine (glvalentine takes the movie apart in painstakingly wonderful detail, and we are all the better for her efforts.

Alas, the rest of the masses aren't as insightful. $140 million opening weekend? Ick.

The one interesting take on the phenomenon is that these attendance records are being broken by an audience that is largely women, as noted in this Salon article. Great for Hollywood to see that movies oriented towards females can do boffo box office, but did it have to be *this* movie? I'm sure that many papers will be written on what this all means...

Well, I'm not going to see it and I'm so happy that E (my 15-year-old daughter) detests the books. Good for her.
