Up to date with the Twilight movies

I'm probably the only novelist in the Western world who hasn't read the Twilight series.
  • Because vampires are not my thing.
  • Because werewolves are not my thing.
  • Because I'm wary of runaway bestsellers based on a dream.
However, I've recently sat through all three movies, and I was pleasantly surprised. Definitely watchable and without the cheesy dialogue I was led to expect. Vampires that shine are only marginally more my thing than vampires with gory mouths a la True Blood, but the main actress is mega cute and I'm in love with Jacob (both as a character and because of what he looks like without his shirt on).

I'm told the movies beat the Hot Tub Time Machine (I haven't see it so can't comment)....
