Twilight is a chick flick disguised as a guys movie. Again, a terrible love story is hidden behind the premise of vampires and werewolves fighting. How could they mess that up? Underworld seemed to have no problem making money fighting werewolves and vampires without making them sparkle.
|Only one is actually a book.|
The only difference is, guys realized Twilight was a lie before going, and only realized they had been tricked by Avatar after they went.

Now obviously Twilight took three movies to even come close to Avatar, but they both passed the 2 billion in revenues mark. Why is it that they were so popular, yet suck so much? I'm not sure, you'll have to read #4 on this list to find out.
3. Pussy-fy a Otherwise Bad-Ass Concept.
Twilight turned badass vampires (think underworld) into pussies that won't even drink blood.
|Dracula would be proud|
Avatar turned aliens from the destroyer of worlds (Vogons!) into a furrie's dream girl.
Vampires are supposed to eat people, not sparkle on them while flipping their hair around.Similarly, when humans and aliens meet, 90% of the time one of them is going to be killing the other. Aliens aren't supposed to be sexy (All the Mass Effect fans immediately stopped reading here). Real aliens are supposed to look like the ones from District Nine or the martians from War of the Worlds.
4. They're both Brain Candy.
As bad as they are people just can't get enough of them. My girlfriend knows twilight is a terribly written story, yet still loves it. In the same way, I know Avatar is essentially Pocahontas in space, but I love it. You know why? Because there's explosions in Avatar! As for Twilight, I have no idea. Perhaps some twilight fans would care to enlighten us on it's appeal?
|An axe? No thanks, I have missiles!|
As a final note, I've never watched Twilight, but I've heard all about it, and I watched Avatar more times than I'd care to admit. Fun Fact, both Avatar and Pocahontas were released in theaters on December 18th.
