TWILIGHT is rated PG-13 for some violence and a scene of sensuality.
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON is rated PG-13 for some violence and action.
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, and some sensuality.
In THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, directed by David Slade from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg and starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, Bella (Stewart) once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between Edward (Pattinson) and Jacob (Lautner) — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.
OK! Magazine has up an article counting down the top 10 moments in the Twilight Saga so Far.
Check it all out here to see what they list.
Do you like their list?
Would you add something else?
Below are my favorites they listed (Jacob is involved of course, but even Edward fans gotta love it when Jacob takes off his shirt right LOL!!)
New Moon: Jacob takes his shirt off
Yes, the screams in the cinema, we heard them all. In fact, we took part in them. Although, editor Geoff was less than impressed.
New Moon: Jacob saves Bella from the sea
Bella realises adrenaline makes her hallucinate Edward’s presence and goes cliff jumping. Luckily, Jacob plays the hero and saves her from the freezing water. Cue more topless Jacob shots.
Popsugar has a little game where they have 50 pictures from the movies New Moon and Twilight and you have to decide which movie they come from.
It is pretty simple because we all know them, but it’s still a cool little thing to go through to see all the awesome stills again.
You can check it all out here.
Moviefone has an article up where they list the top 25 movie moments of the Decade. Twilight made the list.
Below is what they had to say.

4. Edward saves Bella from a car accident in ‘Twilight’ (2008)
The movie that propelled a phenomenon, this scene had pre-pubescent girls and middle-aged women equally putting their hands over their eyes.
Boxoffice has an article listing the 20 most influential films of the decade and Twilight was included in the list.
Below is what they said about Twilight.
Read the entire list here.
A new (undead) franchise was born in November 2008 when it stunned box office prognosticators by opening in first place against Bolt, Quantum of Solace and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. Twilight ended its domestic run with more than $190 million in the bank and another $160 million internationally—and more importantly, a craze that hit Hollywood with more force than teen classics like The Breakfast Club. (You can even buy hand-painted Bella and Edward shoes.) The premise is so simple that writers across the world slapped their foreheads and groaned, “I wish I had thought of that.” An awkward teenage girl falls in love with a mysterious guy crushed on by every single girl at school. The good news is that the feelings are mutual. The bad news is that he’s a vampire who has to constantly restrain himself from sucking her blood. While teenage girls melted over the budding romance, their moms picked up on the abstinence undertones, assuaged that their daughters were mooning over a romance scripted by a married Mormon.
At the center of the storm are stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, both off the radar just 15 months ago and now front page news on every weekly tabloid where their “are they or aren’t they?” romance has been breathlessly analyzed with a fever heretofore reserved for A-listers like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. It’s heartening advice for other burgeoning studios like Summit: why spend money for an established star when you can spend it establishing new ones (with contracts for sequels already signed). But if Twilight’s success seems easily duplicated, 2009 saw a legion of imitators trying to capitalize on the teen horror-romance, and it’s likely that nearly all of these would-be franchises will stall out after their first installment. Yet Twilight’s sequel New Moon opened to more during its first day of release than Twilight did during its entire opening weekend—and it has easily surpassed Twilight’s cume. The third film, Eclipse, is one of the surest hits of July 2010, but even if it’s blotted out by the summer blockbuster sun, the franchise has left a lasting bite mark.
It is HILARIOUS!!!!!!
Make sure you check it out.
Saturday Night Live did a Twilight Spoof starring Taylor Swift as Bella, I mean Stella!! It’s so funny!!!
