Well, you asked for it and you got it! After years of quietly avoiding the Twilight series, we were finally forced to sink our teeth into this mopey and mostly despised teen vampire soap opera. But does it really deserve all the flack it gets? In a word, yes. We attempt to tackle such weighty topics as the acting capabilities of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, the idea of Bella as a role model for young women, the long-lasting cultural appeal of vampires and the terrifying animatronic baby that they chose not to use. We also nitpick the logic of Stephenie Meyer’s mythology and the “whitewashing” of vampires. So why do werewolves always have their shirts off? How do vampires sustain an erection? Which members of the Film Junk crew are on Team Edward and Team Jacob? This month’s premium podcast is your own personal brand of heroin… inject it into your veins below.
