The post title is my favorite quote from the Twilight movie. There were other good ones, but calling your love interest spidermonkey tops them all (referring to your love interest as heroin came in a close second.) The best scene in the movie would hands down have to be when the lead male character (the vampire) is exposed to the sun and his skin looks like he took 10 bottles of body glitter rubbed them all over himself and then sprinted for 100 yds making himself very sweaty and glittery.
Although Lora has written about some of the lameness/humor of the movie, I thought I would add my take.
I am an admitted reader of the entire series of books. I just finished the last book in the series today. I enjoyed them all immensely. I can’t exactly define why either. I mean, come on, teen love drama, vampires, werewolves, not exactly my normal book reading. But, I liked the books and I stand by that. I should warn you that they are addictive. I told myself after the first one that I was not going to read the second because the books were trash. Obviously I changed my mind, I had to know how the story ended. Thankfully all of the books were written when I found them so I had some instant gratification. I really want more people to read these books.
Now, back to the movie. I highly recommend it. With a few ideas for a more enjoyable viewing.
- Take a large group of great and funny friends.
- Go to the movie expecting the worst.
- Don’t be afraid to make fun of the movie, encourage yourself to do so.
- Laugh at all the teen angst. You’ll snicker the entire time.
I have not laughed that hard in a long time. It was all so hysterical. The longing, painful glances. The conversations at the top of pine trees. The baseball scene Lora described. The amazingly stupid dialogue. (Hold still I’m about to kiss you, or something like that.) All in all it made for a good time. I think the fact that I had such good company made the movie for me. I will say this, the books are not nearly as ridiculous as the movie. Something about condensing a novel into a 2 hr movie doesn’t really work.
Next post I intend to get back to actual knitting content……………or maybe something crafty…………….or whatever I feel like. Probably just whatever I feel like.
