Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga is a 10-disc collection that includes everything you could ever want in regards to the blockbuster film series. It’s all encased in a cardboard slip-cover and housed in a hardback book holder. Every entry gets its own movie and special features disc except Eclipse, which only gets one with bonus material and the feature combined. There’s also an extra disc filled with even more extras.

It would be literally impossible to list all the special features included in Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga. Let’s just say that if you love these films, you’ll have days of material to sift through. Audio commentary, behind-the-scenes featurettes, music videos, and deleted and extended scenes are just the tip of the iceberg.

While most religious folks tend to frown upon the idea of a girl pining for a dead guy who drinks blood and wants to be a vampire, I tend to look at the positive aspects of the Twilight series. The films reflect strong moral values when it comes to the subjects of abstinence, dedication, family loyalty, and even hints of a pro-life message.

To give my two cents worth, I find Eclipse to be the strongest entry in the series. It has a good balance of the romantic and horror elements thanks to director David Slade. It’s obvious that he was constantly trying to push the darkness and vampire / werewolf violence as far as he could in a teen-friendly PG-13 movie. This comes as no surprise since Slade headed up the extremely gory and satisfying 30 Days of Night and obviously has a fondness for the undead.

To go over the high-definition transfers of each film would be redundant. The video and audio qualities are clean and clear. Whether you like them or not, the surround sound will pull you into the middle of the action, drama, and romance found in these movies.

Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga will be pleasing to the people who it was designed for. Millions of teen and adult females will scream in delight at the sight of this exhaustive box set. There will even be a few guys like me who get excited. If you’re looking for a way to collect all these movies and their special features in one simple package, you need not look any further.

Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga is available now on Blu-ray.
