Film Fest Friday: Twilight

You knew I was going to get around to watching Twilight, sooner or later. Like I can really pass up a high school romance. I don’t have a lot to say about it. Didn’t read the books. No more interested after watching the movie. I now understand why everyone is so obsessed with this guy:

robertpattinson

Apart from one way-too-brief makeout scene, watching Robert Pattinson parade around on screen for two hours is pretty much the only reason it’s worth watching. (He is beautiful, in some alien species kind of way.) Neat special effects in some parts, involving flying in a beautiful forest, but very lacking in character development, and the storyline is just downright hokey. Maybe it’s the vampire thing I just can’t get down with. Talk about not believable — and this is coming from a hard core sci-fi fan who is willing to believe in mysteries of the unexplained in most cases when it comes to art. Also, it would have been so much better if Rob had used his authentic sexy British accent. Geez, do I have to tell Hollywood everything?

All this is going to do is create a brand new generation of Goth kids who think it looks cool to wear white makeup and dye their hair black. Newflash: this is only sexy on British faux-vampires with pseudo American accents.

Also? Kristin Stewart could not have been a worse choice, and that’s all I have to say about that. They should have gone with an unknown. And it’s not because AHEM I hate all female celebrities AHEM, Mike. I actually think she is really pretty. Unfortunately, in every scene, I couldn’t stop thinking, “Wow, she’s really acting right now.” Which I assume is not the effect they were going for. Plus, she never closes her mouth. Ever.

    She always has the look on her face that she just smelled a stale fart. If someone had warned me that Twilight was going to be this cheesy I would have popped a bottle of lactaid pills.

      I think she kinda always looks just…confused. Or something. Like she has no idea what she is doing on this movie set with these people who are, doing what, acting?
