Now With Rifftrax: ‘Twilight: New Moon’
  |  

I’m going to do my best not to insult the many (dedicated) fans of Twilight who visit Geeks of Doom, but I will say that the only reason I watched the first movie was because there was a Rifftrax audio file available.

What’s Rifftrax you say?

Twilight‘s also become helpful in the test prep department with Defining Twilight, a vocabulary workbook to help students prepare for tests like the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT.

Now, just released this week is the New Moon-inspired follow-up Defining New Moon, with over 700 vocabulary words and synonyms found on the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT tests.
