Twilight Trailer/ New Moon Trailer
I wasn’t going to write a review for either one of these films. I felt people wanted to hear a positive review. So, I was going to leave that to a fellow F-Bomb reviewer to tackle. Then I thought long and hard about being objective. Plus people keep asking me what I think. So without further ado. Your first two for one special.
Prior to seeing these films. I knew nothing about the books. Or their popularity. Not much to my surprise. The movies are also hugely popular. The one thing that surprised me the most. Was the diverse age in the fans.
A story about a Arizona teen transplanted in the North West. Falls for the beautiful social misfit. Bella (Kristen Stewart) is the fore mentioned transplant. And Edward (Robert Pattinson) is the social misfit. As this fantasy of a love story develops. You discover Edward is a Vampire. And this fact doesn’t scare off our young Bella. Mean while Jacob (Taylor Lautner) is Bella’s childhood friend. And he too is in love with Bella. Plus he also carries a secret. Jacob is a Lycanthrope (werewolf). Jacob and Edward’s family has had a pact for a century or so. But of course with this bizarre love triangle all bets are off.
I can go on for days about the plot. But, you get the cheesy side of life. All though I am not a teenage girl. I can see the films’ appeal. But, being a male. I don’t understand the infatuation. In my personal opinion the films’ cinematography is decent. The lanscape and scenery made the film palatable for me. The one thing I kept thinking about during the film. Was what the hell is the author’s background? That my friend is where the story is. So, whether you are “Team Jacob” or “Team Edward”. I say wait for DVD! I prefer “Team Alice” (Ashley Greene). It is the hair!
