SQUEEEEE!!! Let’s talk!
Okay. So. I went to see Twilight tonight with my friend, and my other friend called me up today to tell me about the movie, so I’ll be quoting her a little bit here.
This movie was so bad it was good. It was HORRIBLE. But that’s what made it great.
First of all…EDWARD. Not how I pictured him, and he totally creeped me out. I don’t think he’s good looking and they didn’t make his paleness look natural. It looked like he had white powder on him. And wasn’t his chest supposed to be hair-less? I could be wrong on that, but that’s how I pictured him. And those EYEBROWS!! Oh my god those eyebrows. They were very distracting to me since all I could think of was how he needs to thin those bad boys and let them go a little wilder (as in, they shouldn’t be so perfectly shaped). No girl wants a guy that’s going to pluck his eyebrows how Edward’s were done.
And then there’s Bella. Who’s very “angsty.” Umm, can we get a smile here? She doesn’t even smile when she’s happy. Please. That gets old. And could she please close her mouth?! GAH! I thought her acting was horrible.
In a town as small as Forks, they probably wouldn’t have a high school as big as they portrayed in the movie. At least, the high school seemed WAY BIGGER than it needed to be for such a little town.
But Alice? Oh, Alice, she was right on the money. MWAH!
And if they insist on giving Carlisle blond hair, why does it have to be so obviously dyed? Is there no one in Hollywood who can dye ROOTS? Because my stylist does a bang up job every five to six weeks.
HOLY CLOSE-UPS. Seriously, that director should learn the words “pan out”.
OH! OH! OH! The other good part was Jacob’s dad. I thought he was cool.
But the lines? Seriously, did Edward really call Bella his spider monkey?? That’s cute if your hubby says that in private, not so cute on screen. Some of the lines were so over the top that the whole audience was giggling. And maybe, just maybe, the movie was supposed to be tongue in cheek. But somehow I doubt it.
I’M NOT DONE WITH ALL CAPS!
AND! Did they really have Bella say on the screen, “Death is easy, peaceful. It’s living that’s hard.” HELLO! This movie is targeted to the demographic that has the highest rate of suicide? I’m not saying this movie could be blamed for kids committing suicide, I just don’t think it’s an appropriate message to put in front of teenagers.
Your turn!! Tell me what you thought. I was practically giddy when the movie finished and I MUST TALK ABOUT IT.
