This Actually Happens in Twilight: Breaking Dawn
Reminder: one day left to bid on my magickal spell auction!
And now, apropos of nothing, I give you the amateur filming of what actually happens in Twilight: Breaking Dawn, a movie I quite honestly cannot wait for:
Extremely accurate, except they forgot: “At the climax, nothing fucking happens”.
That’s an amazing video
And, we can’t wait for Maria’s take on the movie :-)
Wow, people actually read/watch that? And somehow enjoy it?
Jacob has been the most popular boys baby name in the US for 11 years running. Isabella just became the girls most popular name in 2009.
Since the Twilight novel was conceived in 2003, the selection of Jacob for the boy may have come from its then current prevalence in the culture. The popularity of Isabella is probably from the books and movies.
A counselor I know has had to read the series, because much of the discussion with tweens and teens is couched in Twilight references. It has been an awful experience for this counselor to read 1,000s of pages of teenage angst.
I’m going to have to read those books. I feel I’m missing out on a shitload of making fun of.
@Bjornar: I agree, it’s like I’m missing out.
The plot sounds almost as crazy as something from Wagner.
Maybe this is the point – she made it kinda okay at the beginning to suck people in so they will talk about it and make it popular. Toward the end, she makes it so freakin’ crazy that even people who hate it will read it just so that we can make fun of it.
@Bjornar: Nooo! Resist, resist!
@jes3ica: I won’t buy them, just borrow them from my book pusher. And then when one of my students say they like it I can tear it apart with authority, and it’ll almost be moral.
“I wonâ€™t buy them, just borrow them from my book pusher. And then when one of my students say they like it I can tear it apart with authority, and itâ€™ll almost be moral.”
When I was reading Breaking Dawn the plot didn’t seem all that strange to me. After watching this video it does seem weird.
The whole making fun of Twilight thing has gotten really old really fast. It was kind of funny at first but I’m really tired of hearing, “Twilight ruined vampires!” “Edward is a pedophile!” “Sparkly vampires are so gay!” “It’s metaphor for Mormonism!”
If you read or watched Twilight and didn’t like it then it wasn’t meant for you. It is written for a very specific segment of the population. It was never meant to appeal to everyone. To any anti-Twilight person I suggest, before you go on a rant about how awful Twilight is, you ask yourself this question: Is this stupid little teen vampire romance really worth all the time and energy I spend being angry at it?
No? See, isn’t everything so much clearer when we put it in perspective? Now that it is not longer directed at Twilight I recommend you direct all your hostility at something that is really destroying the moral values of America: American Idol.
