Well to my surprise the love story was not too bad and the vampires in Twilight were fun to watch! I also heard the werewolf in New Moon (played the native American in Twilight) was a kid karate champion so I decided to review parts of this saga and the actor Taylor Lautner.

Here is a scene from Blade Trinity where Jessica Biel is seemingly about to become a victim of vampires!
