On a lighter note

Sometimes spoof movies are much better than the originals. Scary Movie's a great example.

Vampires Suck is a spoof of the Twilight series. Very funny, and tuned in exactly to the epic silliness of the tweener hit. Especially because Ms. Meyer's saga took itself so seriously.

The female star, Jenn Proske (below) , is able to catch the combination of vacuity, self-absorption, angst and twitchy distraction of (at left) Kristen Stewart's "Bella."

She has both of her facial expressions down pat.

Unlike Robert Pattinsons's anemic drag-queen version of Edward, Matt Lanter is actually funny and sexy underneath the lipstick, eyeshadow and face powder. And in Ex Cathedra's world, that's sayin' somethin'.

Great line: Bella's dad warns her that a group of soulless blood-sucking monsters have invaded  their little town. "You mean...?", she says. "Yes," says dad, "the Kardashians have arrived."

Takes a curmudgeon's mind off the Decline of the West.
