I’d Like To See Edward Try To Move Like This

Vodpod videos no longer available.

God bless Entertainment Weekly and their neverending obsession with everything Twilight related.  The upcoming issue of the magazine will feature Kristen and Taylor on the cover, which will be probably the 4th Twilight related cover this year and there hasn’t even been a movie or a book out yet!!!!!!!!!  I can’t tell if their editors are the ultimate fangirls or if they are just trying to reach out to the fangirls.  Either way I don’t care, because it leads to videos like the one above.

Ms. Stewart is her usual quirky self (*cough* probably on something *cough*) but the reason to watch is the wonderfulness of Taylor Lautner.  Not only is he not afraid to frolic in tall grass (BEWARE OF TICKS!!!!) but he can do crooked backflips!!!

I am soooooooo excited for this movie!!!  With all the hype surrounding Taylor before the release, he better be in the movie for more than 15 minutes, because I can totally see them condensing the whole first 250 pages into 20 minutes (10 minutes of course, being reserved for the infamous paper cut scene).

TEAM JACOB Forever!!!!

Hot Boys and Cute Puppies, Or the New Moon Trailer

I saw this last night on the MTV Movie Awards (and come on, who didn’t see it?) and I have watched it many times since.  The Edward/Bella stuff at the beginning kind of makes me gag, (You’re my only reason to stay……alive……if that’s what I am. Gag, hack) but I loved seeing all the Cullens (most dramatic paper cut ever!!) and Jacob, the werewolf, and Jacob.  Did I mention I loved the Jacob part??  I thought the werewolf looked pretty good.  Nothing like how they are described in the book (or maybe just nothing like I pictured in my head) but it did seem relatively realistic enough for me (very reminiscent of the wolves in the first Narnia movie).

Anyway, here it is for those of you who haven’t seen it, or for those of you who just want a place to watch it over and over.

Why the Twilight Movie is Awesome!!

This was pretty much the best weekend in the history of the world for me.  I got to see my family, eat a lot of food, go to a wizard rock show, see Amber and meet her awesome friend Cassi, and hang out with my sister.

I also found out that I am now best friends with Barbara O’Connor and Ingrid Law.  Wow, it was an amazing two days.  But one of the best parts about it was getting to see Twilight with Anne, Amber, and Cassi.  I don’t think I could have gone with three more enthusiastic people.  They had all seen the movie before and loved it and I know a lot of their excitement rubbed off on me.

Now I know one of my friends was “eh” about the movie, and another one HATED it, but I totally unabashedly loved it.  It was everything that it should have been.  Just serious enough, but mostly just perfectly cheesy so that it was very very entertaining.  Instead of trying to write a review (because I really suck at those) I am going to list my top ten things about the Twilight movie.

10.  Charlie was hot!!!  My three lovely movie companions kept telling me that everyone in the movie was gorgeous including Charlie, and I was like yeah, whatever…..but Damn, Charlie was looking fine!

9.  Jessica was absolutely perfect!  In the books, I’ve always just seen her as mean and selfish, but she was so funny in the movie!  It was so true to what a jealous high school girl would actually do.

8.  There was the perfect amount of Jacob.  He doesn’t show up in the first book much at all, but I was worried they were going to stick him in every other scene just to appease the Jacob lovers or get people ready for New Moon or whatever, but he was in it just enough that we will remember him, but he didn’t get in the way (even though I am Team Jacob, I didn’t think he should be showing up all the time).

7.  Alice was wonderful!  She is one of my favorite characters in the book, and I thought the actress did a very good job.  I was actually impressed with all of the Cullens.  I had seen pictures of them and was like, “ugh, what is going on here!”  But I thought they all did an admirable job, but especially Alice.

6.  Speaking of Cullens, I LOVED the scene where they were in the kitchen making Italian for Bella.  It was really funny and it did a great job of showing the personalities of each character (Emmett being enthusiastic and goofy, Esme and Carlisle being welcoming, Rosalie being, well, a bitch).

5.  The trio of bad vamps was wonderful!  I loved their slo-mo entrance through the fog during the baseball game.  So perfect!!!  They were scary and hot and very very awesome!

4.  Some people are complaining that the movie is unintentionally funny and people are laughing when they shouldn’t be.  Well one of my favorite scenes in the movie is when Edward and Bella have their first biology class together and his “reaction” to her.  That is one of the funniest things in the whole world!!!!  One of my friends wisely pointed out that in the book, we see things through Bella’s eyes, so Edward’s reaction to her is scary and alarming.  But in the movie, we see their relationship from an outsider’s point of view, and that same reaction is ridiculous and comical.  And it is supposed to be that way people!  Laugh away because it is supposed to be hilarious!

3.  Kristen Stewart made me not hate Bella.  I think it helped that we didn’t have a constant stream of her whining like we get in the book, but I really liked Bella in the movie.  Hopefully I can channel Kristen Stewart while I am reading the book and get a whole new perspective on Bella.

2.  The whole baseball scene was great, but special notice must be given to Jasper and his kick ass bat twirling skills.  The three girls I went with were huge Jasper fans and I didn’t truly figure out why until he nonchalantly stepped up to the plate and twirled his bat around.  I am officially a Jasper Fangirl too.

1.  Everyone was drop dead gorgeous.  Call me shallow, but if a movie has a couple of cute guys in it, there is a good chance I will love it.  This movie had nothing but beautiful people filling the screen the entire time!  Everyone was so pretty to look at, but especially the guys.  I haven’t talked about R Patz yet (or Robert Pattinson as most people know him) but I thought he was very very dreamy.  The whole movie was so breathtakingly gorgeous that I couldn’t help but love it.

So congratulations Catherine Hardwicke, I think you did a great job adapting the book to a movie.  I know some people have also complained about cheesy dialogue and things like that, but hello? if you’ve actually read the books you know that they are chock full of cheesetastic dialogue.  When I left the theater I felt the same way I had when I finished the book:  happy, giddy, and wanting to date a vampire (although this time it was Emmett and not Edward).

I Just Had To Share

Hey guys,

So I was just over at youtube, and I saw this pop up at the side of a video I was watching.  Wondering what this was all about I took a peek and almost died from trying not to bust a gut.  Apparently a new Twilight TV promo was aired a couple of days ago during Gossip Girl (which, sadly I do not watch, but I think because I have read most of the books, the TV show does not hold me so well).  I didn’t watch the promo…or did I and I just didn’t realize I did (very possible)…and apparently we see Kristen Stewart in her underpants.  Everyone seems to think this is a huge deal.  Not because we see her underpants, but because the angle it was shot with made Kristen’s rear end look really big (I didn’t think it was that bad though).  Bad camera angles are just out to get us.  Earlier today I saw a picture taken of me during Halloween and my legs looked freakin’ huge.  My legs are not huge like that.  I blame it on the camera angle, as I have been working out pretty diligently for a while and refuse to believe I look that bad in real life. 

But anyways, I thought I’d share the video, not because I want you all to cringe at the panty shot, but because whoever made this video did a REALLY GOOD JOB!  I thought it was brilliant how they included shots from HP5.  Enjoy!

We are totally turning this into a Twilight blog.

I am obsessed. I cannot help it. I’m going to have to go get the audio books from the library and put them on my computer so I can do to them what I do to Harry Potter. Have you seen pictures of the cast for the movie? Here’s one of Edward.

And one of Edward and Bella.

Let me just say that every day I become more pleased with the choices for Edward and Bella.  Robert Patterson looks perfect for Edward….I totally want to be all over him (HWSNBNITB, I hope you are not reading this, and if you are, don’t worry, I would not be all over him, it is just because of my over active imagination that has been fueled by Stephenie Meyer).  I’m also really pleased with Kristen Stewart as Bella.  She’s pretty but not so pretty that you look at her and get super jealous because of her looks ( I will get super jealous because 1- she is playing Bella, 2-she gets to be all over Robert Patterson aka Edward Cullen).  Sighs.

Well, I’m really going to have to start doing stuff – I was just informed that on top of my lab reports, I now have a new baby boy, William, to visit!
