Drew Barrymore to Direct Eclipse?

I have been reading up on my Twilight happenings (Google News keyword Twilight), and I can’t seem to escape this.  Everywhere has Drew Barrymore in the director’s chair for Eclipse.  I love Drew, and she is an excellent director, but I don’t see her as a good pick for Eclipse or any of the movies for that matter.  She is too lovable, and I don’t think she would capture the mood as well.

Why couldn’t we stick with a single director, expand the budget and keep the movies similar through the saga?

I am almost afraid to see New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.  I’m scared they might be too different from the mood and feeling of Twilight.

New Moon Logo Revealed

newmoon

I like it. The color is different, and there has been some speculation that is to show the contrast of this movie to Twilight. The Twilight logo was blue (I thought it was silver, but whatev) signifying coldness (read: Edward Cullen) and the New Moon logo is a warmer yellow to represent heat (Jacob Black). Kinda clever, I guess.

“The Twilight Saga” part on the top was added for people that aren’t hardcore fans of the series so they know this is the sequel to the first movie. To that I say, even people who aren’t fans should know the name of the next movie unless they live under a rock in a cave in the bottom of the ocean.

The sliver of the moon at the bottom is a little confusing because technically a new moon phase isn’t even visible. It’s just all black. There would be no sliver at all to see.

Nevertheless, I’m still very excited for the movie. 268 days to go!

Chapter Discussions: Twilight, Chapter Four – Invitations

 

Oh so conflicted...

Oh so conflicted...

It’s time for another Chapter Discussions post over Twilight. This time it’s Chapter Four, Invitations. These questions come from the hilarious blog Lauren’s Bite and the Twilight Lexicon forums.

1. Why do you think Bella doesn’t want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, “Let’s just go as friends”. Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her?

I know none of the boys appealed to her because she had seen Edward the first day of school. After that, who could compare to him? I don’t think she could even have gone with anyone else even as friends because she was so attached to Edward even at the beginning.

2. Bella asks Edward if he has multiple personality disorder because he either seems to be overly friendly or sarcastic moments apart. To what did you attribute Edward’s odd behavior?

I knew Edward was treating Bella that way because he was having conflicting feelings about her. He wanted to be around her, she was all he could think of, but he also knows for sure that to give in to what he wants and be with her would mean bad things for Bella. He’s trying to decide to keep her close or push her away.

1. Why do you think Bella doesn’t want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, “Let’s just go as friends”. Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her?

This is almost a two part analysis.  Bella was way more mature than any of the children at her school.  Edward and she were on similar maturity levels, and it only makes since to like him, and not the other boys.

2. Bella asks Edward if he has multiple personality disorder because he either seems to be overly friendly or sarcastic moments apart. To what did you attribute Edward’s odd behavior?

Being a boy, I know why guys play like they hate y0u, then also a few minutes later, they like you.  It was pretty simple to me why he was acting like that, even though i thought it was pretty childish… like something i would do. He didn’t want to admit he liked her.

Rob At The Oscars: My Thoughts

 

He's so clean!

He's so clean!

7:25-I just got home from Jessie’s house ( I had a fun weekend, bitch!) just in time to see the Oscars begin. Just in time to find out Rob was spotted on the carpet and I missed him. I saw the pic on Perez and all I can say is RAWR! He looks so hot, especially showered and shaved!

Vid of him walking the carpet, looking F-I-N-E

Here he is being interviewed by Ryan. Why did you acknowledge him, Rob? He said you had no personality! You should have pulled a Brangelina and snubbed him!

8:00- No Rob yet. The guy who won for Best Original Screenplay for Milk was very moving though. I kinda want to cry.

8:29- THEY JUST SHOWED ROB!!! But only for like 15 seconds! I scrambled for Jeremy’s camera phone and managed to start recording before he talked, I think.  He’ll be back, right? RIGHT?! That trick from Mama Mia was with him, not Kristen. A little boo to that. He looked so sexy and smoldering. Plus, I loved how they showed parts of Twilight for their montage of Romance in 2008. 

8:40- I hate Jessica Biel. She’s with my other husband, Justin Timberlake. Where was he? After her speech, they announced that coming up were two of the biggest young stars of 2008. Rob and Kristen? They wouldn’t show him twice, would they?

8:44- James Franco and Seth Rogan are hilarious!

8:54- WTF? Beyonce? That was a surprise. 

8:56- Double WTF? Zac and Vanessa? The girl from Mama Mia again with some guy? I’m not gonna lie, everyone sounds great. I love the part from “Over The Rainbow” at the end.

8:58- Heard before the commercial break, “Coming up, one of the biggest action stars of 2008.” Twilight can be considered an action movie, right?

9:08- I’m so glad Heath Ledger won. He totally deserved it. So sad and sweet. Everyone is trying not to cry.

9:25- So Will Smith is the action star. I totally love him, but where’s Rob???

9:54- Zac Efron needs a haircut. 

10:11-  The in memoriam part of these awards always kill me. Queen Latifah singing one of the saddest sweetest songs ever is making it so much more poignant.  A lot of people died this year. I’m a little surprised they didn’t include anything about Heath Ledger though. I wonder why.

10:21- Slumdog Millionaire won pretty much everything.

10:37- Kate Winslet made me cry. I’m glad she won. I’ve loved her since Sense and Sensibility

10:38- Adrien Brody? I would totally hit that. Even though he needs a shower and a haircut.

10:42- ROB! ROB! ROB! He was sitting right behind Mickey Rourke!! OMG he looked so freaking hot I couldn’t even look at the person the camera was focused on! The camera was perfectly situated so that he was right in the frame perfectly! He looked so serious, bored and tired at the same time! I wish I was his date. That 30 seconds of Rob closeup made all this time I’ve been sitting here worth it. Hopefully next year, Rob is nominated for a few of his own for Little Ashes.

10:55- OK so the Oscars are officially over. We were promised a Twilight presence “more than once”. What the H? Oh well, Rob looked delicious, and I’m pretty satisfied.

30 Days to Go…

There is still a little more than a month before the DVD is released (can’t the days go by faster?) and so I wanted to share with you guys the scenes from the movie I cannot WAIT to view on my own T.V in my own home, where I can rewind again and again, and press pause as needed (like in the sparkling scene where his shirt is unbuttoned!) These are all in order as they happened. Oh, and if you haven’t watched the movie yet and want to be surprised, don’t read this, obvs. I’m showing clips below. In fact, if you haven’t read the book or seen the movie and want to, you shouldn’t read anything on this site. I don’t want to spoil you.

First up on my fave part list is the first appearance of Edward (in the cafeteria, not in the woods during the first minute of the movie). When I saw this for the first time during the midnight showing, the excitement over this scene was very apparent. Everyone collectively squeed and broke into applause at the same time. If you didn’t go, this is how people were conducting themselves in a public place because of a glimpse at Edward Cullen. You might want to turn your speakers down.

 

Anyway, this movie clip isn’t the best since it cuts off before one of the good parts (the sexy scowl he gives when he notices Bella looking at him), but I’m still happy it’s on youtube for my enjoyment. Also, Jasper makes me laugh in this clip.

Next is the first biology scene, when Edward was all bugging out. This clip first begins as Bella walks in front of the fan, and the Edward’s reaction as Bella’s scent blew toward him was priceless. As they say on the LTR,  it looks like he…http://letterstorob.wordpress.com/2008/12/11/this-really-never-happens-you-can-take-my-word/ But let’s be serious now. Edward wanted to kill her and hated her on sight. My favorite parts are at :43 and :51. He looks so sexy when he’s angry! I also love when he storms out past her in the office.

 

Next up is the OTHER biology scene, when Edward actually speaks to Bella for the first time and they are lab partners. I love this part for so many reasons. First, that “Hello” he gives her just slays me. So polite (human guys, take note). I also love Bella’s reaction, amazed that someone so beautiful is actually talking to her, and not only that, but wants to know as much as he can about her. How she made it through class without melting into puddle, I don’t know. 

This particular clip is nice since it also includes the next best part of the movie, the van accident. I said in an earlier post that the chapter of the book when this happens is one of my favorite out of the whole series. I was really looking forward to seeing this in the movie, and I was not disappointed. I love the instant after it happens, when they both turn to look at each other with equal amounts of “WTF just happened?” looks (Rob also looks so freaking hot in this scene I can’t stand it).

This clip is a little shaky at first, and the entire time there is a guy with spiky hair (Edward?) at the bottom right.

Next is the second cafeteria scene where Edward tries to warn Bella away from him, saying one of the best lines EVER. “What if I’m not the hero, what if I’m the bad guy?” *SWOON* My mom had told me about this line before I had even read the book, and I was like, “That’s pretty hot.” before I even read it. It’s one of my favorite quotes from the whole series.

This clip kinda sucks because all I can find on youtube is the trailer that contained this clip.

Then there is the trip to Port Angeles, where Edward swoops down in his silver Volvo (now my dream car) and saves Bella. This was another part in the movie where everyone cheered out loud. I love this part because Edward is just so angry at the thought of Bella getting hurt, and I love when she tells him to put his seatbelt on and he laughs.

You know what’s next. The restaurant, the first date. Rob and Kristen do great in this one, and I love that Rob’s song “Never Think” is playing in the background. He reveals to her that he can read minds, (“Money, sex, cat”) but not hers. The part at 1:53 makes me want to cry because he’s so unhappy with what he is and he knows he should stay away from her, but he can’t  make himself do it. This scene is definitely one of the best.

Next up is the scene where Bella tells Edward she knows what he is. “Say it. Out loud.” I have a button from HT with that quote on it. This scene is great because Edward does pretty much everything he can to scare Bella away from him now that she knows, and she still doesn’t leave him.

We will not talk about the meadow scene since I was VERY upset at how we got jipped. There was a good chunk of the important dialogue between them missing. It’s a sore subject with me. Moving on..

My next favorite part is the baseball scene. If I had to choose, I would say this is my favorite part of the movie. I love the music, the action, the look on Edward’s face before he runs for the ball, all of it. It’s fun to see all the Cullen’s interacting as a family and having fun. I wish this scene had gone on longer, and the bad vamps didn’t show up until later.  Also, Jasper looks pretty damn hot when it’s his turn to bat. I know it’s going to pretty much impossible, but more Jasper in New Moon please? 

***Edit***

Y’all, I forgot to put in the kissing scene. I don’t know is wrong with me. How could I have forgotten it? Thanks to Unintended Choice for pointing this out to me!

It should be pretty obvious why this one is the favorite of nearly every fangirl out there. First he says, “I just want to try one thing. Don’t move.” Then it takes them…f..o…r…e…v…e…r to actually touch lips. This was a very well acted scene but I have to say, if it was me, there would be no acting involved. This kiss was very intense. I felt slightly uncomfortable watching this while sitting by my mom when we went to the movies. The part when he throws her down on the bed…there are no words for that. It’s pretty much the hottest thing I have ever seen IN MY LIFE.

 

Finally, the prom scene. Edward/Rob looks hot in a tux (like there would be any doubt). The music as they are dancing is so sweet, it reminds me of a song at prom in the 50’s. It’s so beyond romantic when he lifts her up so she’s standing on his feet so they can dance. I love when he fakes her out and pretends he’s going to bite her but instead kisses her throat *swoon* (this clip doesn’t show that part, idk why) and when he says, “Is it not enough to have a long and happy life with me?”

So hopefully these clips are enough to tide us over for a month. I’m also hoping Twilight will hit the dollar theater we have nearby soon. They will seeing me around a lot.

Rob Sighting Today!

 

Love the scruff!

Love the scruff!

Robert Pattinson is finally back in the U.S and was spotted in L.A today.Thanks to LTR for the hot pic and the happy news! The hair is growing back nicely, eh? And I’m loving the beard too. It all works.

Some Good News, Rob Will Be A Presenter At The Oscars

http://www.hitfix.com/articles/2009-2-16-exclusive-twilight-star-robert-pattinson-confirmed-for-oscars

One of the hottest pictures ever, I'm pretty sure (had to change the pic, but the caption still fits)

 

I’m pretty glad this hasn’t turned out to be a rumor! It has been confirmed that Rob is going to be a presenter at the Oscars on February 22nd and this is pretty exciting news! When I first read about the “Twilight presence” expected at the show, I was thinking it was most likely going to be Kristen Stewart, or maybe one of the older actors from the movie. I didn’t dare to hope that it would actually be The Hotness himself!

No one is sure yet who he is going to be presenting with (it could be no one) or what award he is going to give out. On one hand I think it would be cute if he and Kristen presented together, but then knowing them they would probably smoke a bowl together backstage beforehand and then be all giggly when it was their turn to present. They giggle A LOT around each other. I think it’s cute, but the people running the Oscars probably wouldn’t’

Im a little weary at the thought of watching hours of this boring shiz so I can see him (for 3 minutes at the most) make his first appearance in what feels like forever. He’ll probably be one of the last ones to go so they can actually keep some viewers around. Hopefully they will pan the camera to where he’s sitting a lot.

Jeremy is not going to like watching this. He hated watching the Victoria’s Secret fashion show with me back in December, so I can only imagine how he’s gonna be when there aren’t any half naked supermodels strutting around. Oh well, the things we do for love…and by that I mean me loving Rob so much that I will watch hours of a boring event I normally couldn’t care less about just to catch a glimpse of him. That’s true commitment, people.
