The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) and Breaking Dawn – Part I (2011)
To be fair to the Twilight Saga movies, the first, third, and fifth instalments are all hovering right around 50 percent on Rotten Tomatoes — not great, but not terrible either.
However, the second and fourth films based on Stephenie Meyer's YA vampire series, New Moon (28 percent) and Breaking Dawn – Part I (25 percent), were panned by critics. Tom Long of The Detroit News wrote, "A big bowl of adolescent romantic mush garnished with horror-lite action scenes and a rushed road trip, The Twilight Saga: New Moon is a mess," while Slate's Dana Stevens said of Breaking Dawn, "By any normal standard, this is a terrible movie, with stilted dialogue and leaden pacing . . . but the Twilight saga stopped being normal a long time ago."
Fans disagreed: both films have around 60 percent on Rotten Tomatoes' audience score. However, that is markedly lower than the audience rated the first and fifth films in the franchise.
