Saw the second Twilight movie, New Moon, today. The special effects are cool, Robert Pattinson is hot, but the basic message of the movie is questionable. The character, Bella Swan, is madly in love with Edward Cullen, the main vampire in the movie. Her obsessive – I can’t live without you – devotion to Edward is not what I consider to be a positive message to plant in the minds of millions of pre-pubescent girls. To think your happiness is completely and utterly dependent upon a guy – dead or alive – is setting your life up for disaster. As soon as you think, I need to be with this man, the relationship is doomed. To consciously want to be with someone is one thing, but to desperately need to be with someone is a recipe for heartbreak.
