how do you feel about Holliwood making Monsters sexy?
Posted 1/27/11
I noticed that in books(newer ones) and movies about the super natural and monsters, that there now portraying them more attractive then there supposed to be and most of the time sexy (Twilight, Phantom of The Opera) what do you guys think?

in my personal opinion, Im not too fond of the idea >.>(most of the time) example, in Phantom of the Opera in the original story, Erik, The Phantom is extremely hideous >_< but in the play and the movies, he's portrayed as sexy >.> what I dont like is, that if you make a villian sexy, he's too likable, its easy too like pretty things and you forget that this character did bad things too get what they wanted =C

another, how would it be if they made Quasimodo from the Hunchback of Notre Dame sexy? O__o it would ruin the whole idea of the story xP

or if they portrayed Frankenstein sexy xD LOL

and Twilight >.> imagine if Edward still treated Bella the way he did but the only difference is that he's ugly, would Edward have fangirls if he didnt look the way he did?

x'D yeah, Im bored, everyone discuss what you think

It kind of defeats the purpose of a monster.

x'D Its human and its okay to like pretty things once in a while but why? =P to be honest I find it kinda shallow and meaningless >.> Beauty and the Beast wouldn't be Beauty and the Beast if they made the Beast a hunky looking man instead of a monster right? it would loose the purpose of the whole story I think you feel for the beast because all he wants is to be loved for his soul despite how scary he looked, Belle fell in love with the beast when she saw his true colors and that means alot, it takes true love to love someone who's unappealing, thats why I think that fairy tale shows a take of true love

and the Hunchback of Notre dame would be ruined if Quasi was a handsome guy instead of a deformed bell ringer =P because if he was handsome, you wouldn't really feel for him as much, everyone would just say, danm, Esmermalda is a crazy bitch for not choosing Quasi, instead she chooses that ass Pheobus >.>(he's not a hero in the realy story) but in the story, Esmeralda doesnt love or feel for Quasi because she's disgusted by the way he looked >.> and because of that, it makes the people feel more for him because of the way he gets treated for his deformities

see what Im sayin? =P its just shallowness when Hollywood does that -.-. thats also why I hate Twilight >.> everyone good in Twilight is pretty but yet everyone bad is ugly, Edward Cullen has a horrible personality yet Bella stays with him >.> but if he didnt look the way he did, she wouldnt even be around him.


and like Losingorbit said, it would defeat the meaning of monster O.o

I agree that making some monsters sexy is pointless to the idea of most monsters. Vampires, for me, have always had some sort of sex appeal/ attractiveness that I think is fitting. Seducing victims so they can feed, not aging, and such. Twilight fails for other reasons in my opinion (but I've only seen the first one and bits of the others). It's okay for vampires to be sexy so long as it is just a veneer covering what makes them a monster.

Although I do not really think it was seen as sexy, the movie Frankenstein with Robert De Niro made his costume a bit more human in appearance than the iconic Frankenstein's monster. I recommend watching it if you have the oppurtunity.

yeah XD I've seen it, very good movie, but what Im saying is, is that imagine if Hollywood made Frankenstein sexy ='D it would ruin the whole story and its meaning >.>because Frankenstein would be way too easy to like when your supposed to feel bad for him that everyone looks at him like a scary monster with no feelings

yes I noticed that I watched clash of the titans a while ago and medusa was NOT portrayed right! She is supposed to be hidious because Athena cursed her, so I thought it was very odd. Awsome graphics but not monster like at all more like a creature of some sort..... I didnt like that it wasn't how it should have been

what also bothered me was the new Beowulf movie Dx I hate that they made Grendel's mother sexy when she's really supposed to be a scary demon monster -_-
