As a matter of principle, I do not watch anything on TV or at the theater with a vampire or an occultish theme. However, at the recommendation of a relative, I soldiered though an episode of the “Twilight Saga.” Afterwards, I looked up the series on “Honest Trailers“–just for fun.
If you’re looking for romantic alternatives to the TWILIGHT SAGA, try watching silent films that star John Gilbert or Rudolph Valentino. Their stares are so expressive and meaningful that each wore the moniker “Great Lover of the Silver Screen” with ease. Silent films have made a comeback in recent years. You can find them on Turner Classic Movies.
