Twilight again

So, I saw "Twilight" again this week with Sei. He liked it ok- thought it was easy to watch other than enduring Bella's acting. She bugged the crap out of me the entire movie. Sei said, "Yeah, she makes me think of Neve Campbell." YES! Exactly!! I almost wrote that in my last post but wasn't sure if y'all would know what I meant. The whole shaking her head really fast, blinking, almost stuttering like she's nervous everytime she speaks thing is annoying. But whatever...

Jacob grew on me. He's not MY Jacob, but he's cute. Soooo NOT Native American, but I guess Natalie Wood wasn't Puerto Rican in "West Side Story" either (along with all the Sharks...) And I'm pretty sure the Crying Indian was Italian and not Cherokee like he claimed. Did he really think you can just decide to be something else? I think I will be Samoan today. Talofa!




Anyway... and I have now figured out that Jasper (on the right for all you non-Twilight freaks) makes me think of a blonde Edward Scissorhands. Especially the 1st scene with him when he walks in the cafeteria and later at the Cullen home when Alice tells him "Don't worry. You won't hurt her." What is Emmett holding in this pic? Eggs?? --->

I was thinking the same thing about Jasper!

Well they don't eat,maybe Emmett thinks eggs are a good choice. "Hmmm..what food will make me look more human and less sparkly killer?"

I'm going to see Twilight for the second time today. I'm excited for the baseball scene,it's one of my faves for many reasons.

Stacey said...

First and second!

Everyone must be out shopping.

Karina said...

Emmet is holding eggs, to make him look human. I knew Bella reminded me of someone i've seen before! I'm third!!! I'm usually one of the last people to comment.

S said...

Talofa! Yes I know how it rolls!!! I have yet to see the movie or any movie for that matter. I am glad you got out with the man!

Physcokity said...

TALOOOOOOOOOOOOOOFA! I'm guessing those eggs are for some type of practical joke?

Yes, baseball scene is probably the favorite...next to the kitchen scene when Emmett waves the knife at Bella. hahaha

I love Stacey's avatar.

I just finished watching it again ;)
So many things bothered me about it, but i likedsome things too. Can't have it all i guess.
ITA with you about the sttutering and the blinking.

I will never forgive them for ruining my meadow scene.

No Cool Story said...

what a weird prop those eggs are.

I sill love the kissing scene.

No Cool Story said...

last one: is it bad to want fangs?
i want fangs.

Whitney said...

Ha ha ha. What IS Emmett holding?! I thought Jasper's faces were funny. Especially how Jessica described him as "always looks like he's in pain". It was so true.

Yvonne said...

I have to agree about Bella and Neve Campbell.

I thought Jacob was just adorable--not sure how he'll pull it off in the next movie, but I thought he was perfect in this one.

Love the Jasper/Edward Scissorhands comparison. He was just plain weird.

Millie said...

Jasper looked like he was about to have an "accident" the whole movie. Bad eye acting, dude.

I liked Bella's acting OK. She definitely wasn't the worst thing about the movie... I would say the screenplay writers took that prize.

Millie said...

P.S. One of my favorite things was Asian Metrosexual Eric.

annie said...

I liked it, but agree with you!

swampbaby said...

Jasper = Edward Scissorhands. Perfect! I thought his acting was the worst. Someone should tell him there is a difference between looking like you are having intestinal problems and looking like you are trying to control yourself from killing everyone. Maybe Emmett "eats" lots of raw eggs because that's what Rocky does and he's all buff and everything ;-)

Amanda said...

Totally agree with the Jasper Edward Scissorhands comment! I will say this in Jasper's defense...he truly did look like he was in pain (constipated, whatever) in the first scene which is understandable seeing as how he is still relatively young as a "vegetarian" and it is hard for him to be around so many humans.

I saw it again the other night and liked it better the second time. Still am not crazy about Bella, but she bugged me less the 2nd time around.

I'll be reading cause you crack me up...

JustRandi said...

THAT'S IT! i was trying to figure out who he looked like too! THanks for clearing that up for me.

And obviously it's a bag of marshmallows for the hot chocolate. That guy is FREEZING!

Suzanne said...

Boo hoo. I don't get to see the movie for almost 2 more weeks! Waiting patiently...or not! :D

aubrey said...

hahaha! i'm going to see it for the second and third time this wednesday and thursday. and emmett is holding eggs to pretend like he eats them to stay buff. or something..

but you are right on with your comparison to neve campbell and edward scissorhands. hee hee.

Lauren said...

No seriously...WHAT IS UP WITH THAT PROP. I am dyyyying. Yah...let's have the tough guy carry around a dainty sack of....eggs?

Oh...and he TOTALLY looks like Edward Scissorhands. Crazy!

Physcokity said...

P.S. One of my favorite things was Asian Metrosexual Eric. A.MEN. I've got your back baby.

Physcokity said...

I saw it for the third time this past weekend, and I couldn't stop thinking about how Bella looks like Neve...too true, oh and it took a good fifteen minutes for the whole pot head thing to pass as well...grrr

I get that book Bella has a difficult time formulating coherent thoughts when she is in an Edward stupor? but movie Bella's parts of stuttering were usually in parts of high stress or inopportune moments of the like, not highly "romantic" ones...whatevs I'll still probably buy it when it comes out
hahahah

joanna said...

Just found your blog. Love it! Your comment about Neve Campbell made me laugh because I can't stand her acting. I'm sure she's a nice person in real life but her acting drives me insane. She's trying to seem too natural but she's just acting badly. :)

Nancy Face said...

I always loved the Crying Indian...even if he was fake! :)

That little bag of eggs is funny...and I never noticed it! :D

Edward Scissorhands, HAHA! :D

Momma Magpie said...

Emmett is so muscley he needs to eat 15 raw eggs for lunch every day. Like Rocky. Only cuter. And probably taller.

OMG that is so hilarious that you guys thought her to be like Neve. I DID TOO! That is exactly who I thought she acted like. Very annoying. She's apparently getting ready to play Joan Jett in some new movie. That'll be interesting. Maybe they should put her in some acting classes before they start shooting.

heyya lol yea the eggs are a bit strange but kinda cute how he thinks they will make him look human. haha i can just imagine emmett this big strong guy packing himself some eggs for school bahaha how adorable lols. at first i thought they were garlic as a contrast between traditional vampires lols

oh and i noticed when bella was in the hospital at the end, the picture on the wall behind edward is of the ballet studio and the ballet scene is playing on the tv behind renee! i though that was pretty cool lols.
