Twilight: the Movie
It's coming out tomorrow! F.I.N.A.L.L.Y!
But I'm scared that it'll totally massacre the plot. And the characters. And be overly cheesy.
Oh well. I do like Kristin Stewart as Bella. She's not a disaster, at least. But Robert Pattinson? He'll always be Cedric Diggory to me. As a friend of mine said, "Edward's supposed to be an angel. Robert's got that hot farm-boy look to him, but he'll never pull it off."
Sadly, I'm in total agreement with this statement. Plus, he's British and I *know* (and a few reviews have said) that his accent will pop up in the movie. British accents are pretty damn fine, but in this case...pleasegodno.
Besides the leads, I'll just comment on a few more roles.
Ashley Greene seems to be able to pull of Alice well but her other half, Jasper, Jackson Rathbone is an epic fail, IMO. Maybe when I actually watch the movie, he won't suck as bad as I'm sure he will.
Also, Nikki Reed isn't my ideal Rosalie Hale but then again, it's hard to live up to the title of "Most Beautiful Woman in the World."
Everyone else, I pretty much have no opinion on. Except for Taylor Lautner. If he ruins Jacob, I'm going to *insertviolentamdeaninglessthreat*. And I hate the wig he has to wear. It's fugly. And so is he. Grr.
Le sigh. Jacob in the books is awesome. And now he won't be :(
I remember that when I first won Twilight way back before it was famous. (Think 4 years ago, little 13 year old me won a copy of Twilight. If I hadn't won it, I would have probably never read it...)
Anyways, needless to say, I loved it. And I thought Jacob was really interesting, so all was not horrible when New Moon came out (and I got it a week early! Yay for Chapters and their shipping mistakes!).
And even in Eclipse, Jacob was still one of my favorites. (Don't be a hater! Don't you feel sorry for him at all!?!)
But Breaking Dawn ruined him. And the whole series. Oh well, I was hoping this movie would redeem him but I guess not.
Anyways, how did you guys discover Twilight and what do you think of the casting? And WHEN are you going to go see the movie?
I know I'm going to see the movie tomorrow. Even if I'm not allowed. *ahem.*
