Yeah he's at least as self absorbed and selfish as Bella.  I mean, he would have been curbstomped in about a minute and the humans still killed, but take a stand bro.

Is it just me, or if an ENTIRE group of tourists disappeared and their last known whereabouts that tourist attraction, I THINK that might generate some attention to yourselves.   Seemed like a stupid thing to have in your movie since it made no sense.

Particularly if, as it was heavily implied, it happened several times.

Well, It's implied that this is a regular thing for them, right? This was the lunch rush?

It's a standard problem for ALL vampire genre movies, TV shows, and novels.  One math professor calculated how many people all the Sunnydale vampires shown over the 7 year life of that series would have had to kill if they only ate once a night per night they were shown in the series.  He had all kinds of variables like excluding a certain number Buffy was shown staking the first time they appear on screen and stuff, but the final tally was still over 100,000.  That many people dead and the national guard wasn't called in?  That Mayor must have had some pull.

It's a serious problem you have to deal with if you set out to write in the vampire genre.  Which is why I think Bram Stoker had Dracula feeding off the same person for days and weeks so it comes across as some kind of wasting disease and the death at the end doesn't draw much attention.  With that kind of feeding pattern you could live off 12 or so babes a year and never draw massive attention.

I'm willing to let the issue slide if it was revealed that all those tourists were turned into vampires themselves.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

Would tourists be considered foreign cuisine?

 ;D

That was great and true.  Woman if a guy runs away from you the number of times he runs away from Bella in these movies it means he doesn't want to ever see you again!
