With Twilight the movie out and broadening an already large fan base, some may fear that the new Twilight-obsessed fans may be a little shallow or uninformed due in part to the fact that with a movie out, why do they have to read the book? Some dedicated Twilighter's who began reading and worshiping the series before the newly massed popularity, brought about from the movie, are some what offended when a fan of the movie seems to only think about how hot Edward is and doesn't value themes that the story represents.Some Twilighter's fear that the Twilight fan base is being lumped into a brainless classification. I myself am a little disappointed when I hear something like this happening, but I don't believe it is all bad.
There are wide ranges of people in our world,when something is as great as Twilight and grows and reaches other places,it is going to attract many different kinds of people. This is where we can compare Twilight to Christianity.
Christianity has grown exponentially from it's beginnings, it has reached many people all over the world. If you have seen from personal experience then you can tell that some people have taken their religious beliefs to extremes, either within themselves or within their community. Some take it upon themselves to know every detail of the Bible,every single aspect of the religion. And then some just follow what they have been taught by others, they don't think it even necessary to read further into it. There are ignorant people out there who don't take the liberty in trying to find the true meaning behind their worship, but then there are people who find the meaning and enjoy it within themselves.
Twilight has reached a point like this. Ultimately we are going to be faced with many different people with very different aspects of their personality's that view Twilight should be worshiped in different ways. Some people aren't reader's so they watch the movie, some people don't like movie's so they never even give the film a shot. It's like celebrating your religion only at your home and not going to church. That is perfectly fine to do. When someone believes in Jesus and chooses not to read the Bible, it is their own way of believing. Just as many other people will see Twilight in many different ways. They will either watch the movie, read the series, or skim over the books and watch the film.Does any of that sound disappointing to you? Well this is something modern religion is facing. At the bottom line of it all, Twilight will be known through different mediums and the people of our planet will set forth and find the tellings of the story in different forms. Cullenism is growing.
