Re: Twilight (2008)

Why doesn’t Twilight have a rating by Decent Films Guide?

Because my Twilight article isn’t really a movie review. It’s an analysis of Twilight as a cultural phenomenon with attention given to more to the books than the film (although most of the issues discussed carry over from the books to the film.

The specific contributions of the filmmakers — the director, screenwriter, actors and so forth — are not discussed. Since a rating is intended as a quick index of the opinions set forth in the review, a non-review essay doesn’t get a rating.

For what it’s worth, if I were rating Twilight, I expect it would get something in the C-minus range.
