The choice between a bad boy and a good guy is never easy. Bad boys have all that dangerous sex appeal, while good guys seem to offer comfort and security. When the bad boy is a vampire and the good guy is a werewolf, the choice gets even more complicated.

In Twilight: New Moon, Bella Swan has to choose between her blood-sucking love Edward and the new guy in town, sexy and sincere Jacob (who happens to be a werewolf). This second chapter in the Twilight saga is captivating young girls and their mothers alike. And Jason. Listen to him and Mason weigh in on the film.

Jason:  Are you on Team Edward or Team Jacob?

Mason:  I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Jason:  It’s the new Twilight man.

Mason:  Oh, it’s the werewolves and vampires thing?

Jason:  Yeah, it’s the love triangle.

Mason:  I mean, my girlfriend is insanely into that. She went and saw it all on opening night.

Jason:  Yeah, that’s the way to see it.

Mason:  She’s a Team Edward girl, I suppose.

Jason:  Oh is she, she likes the bad boy?

Mason:  Yeah.

Jason:  But opening night’s the way to see it because it’s really fun, it’s like people screaming every time someone…well, people meaning young girls screaming…

Mason:  And moms, right? Isn’t it like a huge mom phenomenon?

Jason:  To a degree. If I were a mom, I feel like I might be a little concerned about it. I don’t feel like it has the most positive messages about how to handle a relationship. For instance, one message it seems to send is if someone breaks your heart, don’t bother getting over them because they’ll definitely come back to you because it’s really meant to be.

Mason:  Oh yeah, that’s positive.

Jason:  And it seems like maybe the roles…like, Bella, the heroine’s role is a little bit passive. She seems to really relish in people fighting over her. Actually I don’t know if she really relishes in it, but that’s definitely the focus of the film.

Mason:  Also it’s cool to date dead guys.

Jason:  Definitely dating dead guys is cool.

Jason saw the new Twilight movie, and he can’t believe Mason doesn’t have an opinion about the love triangle between Bella, Jacob, and Edward. Mason hasn’t seen Twilight: New Moon, but his girlfriend likes it so much that she saw it on opening night. She’s a fan of Edward.

Young girls and their moms are Twilight’s biggest fans. But Jason doesn’t think most moms would approve of the movie’s messages. He thinks it sends an unrealistic message to young girls about love. He also thinks the female character, Bella, seems weak. The movie is all about the two male characters, Edward and Jacob, fighting over her.

Do you prefer good guys/girls or bad boys/girls? Who is your favorite Twilight character, Jacob or Edward?

I found from the movie that there is even a goodness in  the evil! It is learned to bring the good in a bad world! That’s why I like better Edward.

Sometimes i prefer good one, sometimes i prefer bad one. In this stoy, i prefered Jacob. I dont know exactly why i chose him. He became sympathetic to me with his friendly nature and being a protector of Bella against everything. Vampires are cold creatures physically. Cold vs Hot. Hot sounds better to me. Because of these kind of things… Smile
