Apparently, lots of guys have seen the movie Twilight and are reading the books now… unfortunately, they’re just not talking about it like we are here at LTR and LTT. You think you and Chris Weitz and the Summit marketing dept could have a little heart to heart before this all starts again and butch it up a bit this time around to let dudes know it’s ok to watch this movie? Let ‘em know that it’s not all screaming fangirls and lovely dovey teen romance moments?! Sure WE, the girls, love all that stuff, but what about the werewolf action, the vampire hunting, fixing up motorcycles, cliff diving and hot chicks driving PORCHES for God’s sake? Show THAT stuff in your trailers, movie posters and talk show clips, and the boys will gladly tag along, I swear!
Also, could you please talk to your friend KStew about her acting skills? After chatting with my guy friend, and without ANY prompting from me, he says that she totally bombs her performance, citing the “blinking and stuttering.”
So, if you have a few moments, maybe you could bring up some of these points with your studio bosses and director… it would be really cool to take my guy friends with me to see New Moon… and I have a lot of dude friends, so more money in every one’s pockets! We all win! Oh, and you should meet this guy friend, you’d be good pals I know it!
So… just to set this up below here, Rob, cause it’s a smidge long, my guy friend was in my office and saw the Edward doll and proceeded to take pictures of it and posted it on my facebook. It actually turned out really neato and this was our resulting convo…
SEE Rob, guys really ARE talking about you and Twilight!
Read what my guy friend says about Twilight after the jump!

themoonisdown : OHHH yea the book is way better than the movie, but arent they all?
myguyfriend : it was entertaining, def could be a better movie if it wasn’t appealing to pop culture
themoonisdown i wasnt a fan the first time i saw it, but i went again and really liked it
themoonisdown no joke, i think they needed a diff director and stay a bit more true to the story line
themoonisdown i mean with the money it made they need to go with like a christopher nolan type
myguyfriend : not sure if it was intentional, but all the cheese was really really funny
themoonisdown: i think some of the best lines were from side characters!
