Neither are critically acclaimed movies… and in neither case do the fans care. They both make tons of money. Both have transforming-ish characters.
New Moon is now even in the top 3 of biggest opening weekends, right next to the Dark Knight. Really.
So what is the difference between Transformers and Twilight?
Here it is:
Megan Fox is wearing more clothes than Taylor Lautner.
Also, correct me if I’m wrong (and I know I have readers that like to tell me when I’m wrong), but it seems that Ms. Fox is often called things like “skanky” or “trashy” while Mr. Lautner gets called things like “hottie” or “Mr. amazing 8-pack abs” or “Mr. I wish he was 10 years older.”
No double standard there… nope. Why are women trashy and men heroes? Why can’t they both be equal parts trash and hero? 😉
One thing that Transformers has that is definitely the trump card here though, is Optimus Prime. Maybe if Twilight could fit in Optimus somehow it would get me out on opening weekend.
