blink-182’s Mark Hoppus compares Twilight to Star Wars

The Empire Strikes Back 30th Anniversary Charity ScreeningMark Hoppus has compared the Twilight Saga to the Star Wars movies.

“I have not seen the new Twilight,” he said.

“I don’t know. I suppose for this generation that’s like somebody coming up to me and saying [they] never saw Star Wars.”

Speaking about Star Wars, Hoppus named Stars Wars: The Empire Strikes Back as his favourite film of all time.

“I think that this movie has a longevity because it kicks so much ass, and it’s definitely my favourite movie of all time,” he said.

“And I think that it … has a really amazing second-act feel to it,” he said. “It’s really dark. It’s moody. It’s not just an action/adventure.

“There’s all these different elements that come into it. There’s betrayal and there’s discovery. It’s a really great movie.”
