The Twilight Saga was released this week on Netflix USA and Scott Mendelson wrote an opinion piece for Forbes on how Twilight occupied all 5 tops spots among Netflix’s Most-Watched Movies. Below is an excerpt:

The $3.3 billion-grossing Twilight Saga did more than any other modern franchise to debunk the notion that films for and about girls and women were box office poison.

However, at least for today, all five of the top movies on Netflix’s “daily most-watched” list are all five installments in The Twilight Saga. Alas, they aren’t in exact order, as it goes Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight (the first and still the best), Chris Weitz’s New Moon (the worst), Bill Condon’s Breaking Dawn part II (the best sequel with a terrific final reel), David Slade’s Eclipse (the threequel and the only chapter to crack $300 million domestic) and Condon’s Breaking Dawn part I (the one where Bella and Edward get married and have bed-breaking sex before birthing a human/vampire baby).

Stewart and Pattinson both “recovered” from the “Eww, those movies are for girls” cultural backlash and became prestigious and engrossing adult actors. … Pattinson is playing Batman and has crafted an onscreen persona closer to Chris Walken and Crispin Glover than Chris Hemsworth or Chris Pine. I wish Catherine Hardwicke got more mileage out of launching the franchise. Twilight, with an indie sensibility and a self-knowing wit, is easily the best of the bunch. 

Click on link above to read the full opinion piece. Personally, I agree with Scott, Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight was the best of all the films for me. Eclipse was the most disappointing.

    I think you knew I’d be loving this post Maria! There’s something special about Twilight – I would’ve loved to see CH’s vision of New Moon and where she’d have taken the series. But the Saga still gives me warm fuzzies, for which I’m eternally grateful. And to be fair, I never googled Cedric, but I sure as hell wanted to know more about the guy that played Edward …… which ultimately led me here.
