On The 15th Anniversary, Let's Talk About The 7 Things From The "Twilight" Films That Aged Like Milk, And The 9 That Aged Like Fine Wine

Happy 15th anniversary of the first Twilight film! I remember midnight screenings, book releases, and the Hot Topic merch pileups. The Twilight era was truly one for the books.

The opening title screen of "Twilight"

So, on this joyous occasion, let's discuss, in my opinion, the eight things in the films that aged pretty poorly and the nine that aged as beautifully as a vampire:

1.Aged poorly: Bella and Edward's age gap

Bella and Edward in an embrace

2.Aged poorly: Renesmee's CGI

3.Aged poorly: The way Bella's friends acted after Edward left

4.Aged poorly: Jacob imprinting on a baby

Jacob's wolf eye with a grown-up Renesmee in his eye

5.Aged poorly: Jacob's completely inappropriate and manipulative behavior towards Bella

6.Aged poorly: The total lack of diversity

7.Aged poorly: The clear problems on how relationships are portrayed in this story

And now, let's talk about the things that I think aged really well for the series:

8.Aged like a vamp: "Edible art"
