On Friday, I watched The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part 1. And I tweeted it.

  1. In case you're interested, I wrote an entire essay that I turned into a blog post about that pro-life bullshit.

    I swear this isn't a loosely connected and thinly disguised advertisement for my blog. I genuinely think it might interest you.

  2. You've got to watch this with the RiffTrax playing. It makes it more bearable. The guys from MST3K make it worth a watch.

    Here's a sample of it.

    *raises a fist of solidarity with Team Mustache Dad/Charlie* Poor Billy Burke.

  3. I think it says a lot that this romance series' concept of pregnancy combines the worst aspects of two different alien horrors.

  4. So, how DOES one pronounce Renesmee? Because every time I try, I sound retarded, and even after all these months i'm still not sure about the "correct" pronunciation.

    1. "Run-NEZ-may"

      Even SMeyers acknowledges that it's a weird name, but said she got so used to it early on that she didn't feel okay changing it. To her credit, everyone but Bella has a problem with it in the book. Rose tries to be okay with it because she has a case of baby-rabies, but everyone else is like Bugs Bunny trying to accept the name Hansel.

  5. Watch the second and ask yourself why the hell Alice thought it was a good idea to chance a near-death Bella in to that sexy blue dress. I don't know about you, but the first thing I'd chance a family member into when they're close to dead and we're all worried would be something loose and comfortable, not shirt, tight silk.

    BD2 has the only actual acting from Kristin Stewart, who happens to be the highest paid "actress" Hollywood has ever had (I can't believe she's paid higher than the Oscar winners), and even that is just fifteen second or so when she finds out Jacob's in love with her newborn and will be her furutre sex partner. I don't care that SMeye tries saying that it's just a brotherly thing early on. They all know that it means having sex when the girl is old enough, and there's no way to forget all about that. Taylor Lautner had a hard time with his role in BD2 because of this.

  6. I'm watching BD # 1 while listening to Riff Trax (same guys who did MST 3000) and its just hil.ar.ious!! You gotta check it out as a lot if what they rip apart (ie: WHY ISN'T HE SPARKLING ANYMORE) are the same points some of your tweets picked up on...just awesomeness.

  7. Jenn...I just posted the same thing bout Riff Trax but saw you beat me to it...you're right...soo much more bearable with the MST3K guys helping out. And yes, I'm always and forever Team Mustache too!

  8. You guys should check out the RiffTrax Kickstarter! They're trying to get as much money as possible to offer to Summit so they can riff Twilight live. (They are doing just fine, but I'm sure every penny helps.)

  9. God yes, Charlie is the best actor in the franchise.

    He is the only reason I got through the first movie.

  10. I watched both Breaking Dawn 1&2 yesterday because of this post... It felt like one of those things that I can now just put behind me...

    The vampiric c-section is bad enough in the book. It completely skeeved me out to see it on screen. And in part 2 -- What the hell is up with creeptastic CGI baby? If that's what babies look like, I'm never having one...

  11. Charlie was my favourite one too:-)

    The Hillywood Show parody of Breaking Dawn is hysterical! Their take on Jacob is the greatest thing ever. Also, the birth scene made me laugh so hard that I cried!

  13. "They probably could have made this into just one movie if they cut out the hour and a half of Bella just frowning/breathing."

    Screen Junkies did the opposite and cut together Twilight: Just the Stares!

Say some stuff! If you can't think of anything to say, leave a link to a cute dog picture. I'm easy.
