Prototypical Romance

With the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 teaser trailer out, lets take a look at what could possibly make this ‘epic romance’ movie franchise so popular.  While some skeptics would call this stuff low-budget low-talent pop-teen fluffy bullsh*t, it has managed to gain quite a following so let’s not dampen the mood.  The Twilight Saga is a four novel series told primarily through the narrative of a young girl Bella, and her romantic encounters with both a vampire, and a werewolf.  Indeed much of the story revolves around Bella’s inability to come to a decision regarding her love for both the vampire Edward Cullen, and the werewolf Jacob Black.  Such indecisiveness of course is pretty classic Idealist.  Bella though does indeed face a tough decision: the safe, reliable, protecting Guardian Jacob, or the forbidden, passionate, loving Artisan Edward.  Certainly, men and women alike throughout history have faced similar romantic decisions quite often as such a predicament is arguably the basis for the quintessential love story.  This fourth installment actually begins with Bella marrying Edward, so I guess we’ll find out how that goes.  Whether you are team Edward or team Jacob, you can catch Breaking Dawn at a theater near you November 18th.
