I have some absolutely hilarious Twi-news for you all today!

1. Robert Pattinson “dead”. Seems like celebrity death hoaxes are all the rage at the moment. Pick someone who isn’t going to appear a mere few hours later live on television, idiots. That way you might actually fool someone.

2. Fifty Things You Didn’t Know About Twilight. By Cleo Magazine. More like ‘Fifty Fun Facts about Robert Pattinson’. Oh and they also attack Kristen Stewart for not having read the book before she was offered the audition. Well whopdeedoo Basil, nor did most of the rest of the cast!

3. Dimlight! Quite possibly the best parody I’ve seen yet. Well, after the SmokeyFizz one about cookies. But Dimlight is still epic! WATCH IT! I lolled big time.

4. I’m not going to link to them, because you can find them everywhere (and because I find them a bit scary and wish to avoid them myself), but more lols thanks to the hundreds of girls who announced that they would marry Robert Pattinson/who proposed to Robert Pattinson/who said Robert Pattinson was the reason for their existence on camera. You make me lol. Not only is it kind’ve illegal for him to marry you – considering 90% of you are underage – but celebrities don’t date the creepy fans. Also, the media like making fun of you.

5. Six Excuses for Grown Ups to justify seeing Twilight. Excuse me whilst I lol. LOL! Ok, now that that’s done, let me lol again. LOL!
Yes, because all the cinema staff are judging you. Just like the bookstore staff did. So suck it up and go see the movie if you want. No one cares that much.

And that’s a wrap for the most hilarious Twi-news of the week.

Let me know if you find anything else that twi-larious!

Over & Out!

Ok, because I don’t really feel the need to update on all the various happenings in Twi-news, because there are other sites which are far better at it, I will pick out my best and faves and post them here as I find them.

First of all, Robert Pattinson will appear on Ellen Degeneres on 21st Nov in America. (isn’t that the date of the movie premiere there?) For all of us Australians stuck here, Ellen airs on Arena (Foxtel) every morning, and we get the show the day after. Because the 21st Nov is a Friday, we will get on Monday the 24th. If my calculations are correct, it will air at 11am EST, which is 9am in WA. Don’t forget to record it!

Secondly, I love Variety’s interview with Robert Pattinson.
It’s 15 mins long, which is lengthy, but it’s totally worth it. Honestly, you can’t not love the boy more after watching it. You will have to turn your speakers up, and I warn you: the interviewer is a bit annoying, but his answers are unscripted and indepth and you get answers to questions that are actually good. (I’m sick of hearing the same old questions with the same old answers over and over, so this was refreshing.)
I especially loved his discussion of the Twilight books. I’ve always felt he’s kind of avoided answering questions about his opinions of them and especially his love of New Moon, when Edward isn’t even present for a huge chunk of it. But this interview swept away all my little doubts about why he likes NM best.
Best of all, I love it when he says something along the lines of: “I don’t think it’s a particularly girly film – wait, is it girly? I haven’t seen it!”
If you don’t watch it, you suck. Blood.

The LA Times (blah American newspaper) has had their 30 day countdown to Twilight going for a while. The link there just takes you to all of them on one page. They have some fun facts, some fun captioning competitions (although the caption-Bella winners weren’t very funny…) and fan questions. I love fan questions.

Collider has some Spoiler-Filled Fun. I don’t know what Collider is, but the middle two videos (which are slow to load – and can only be loaded one at a time) are totally worth watching. The top one is the Comic Con interviews we’ve seen before and the last one is just the actors running up onto the stage at Comic Con. Of course, I have warned you: the middle two ARE jam packed with spoilers. I couldn’t resist. Totally worth it.

And finally, Collider (again) has a supermassive, never ending interview with Catherine Hardwicke. It’s difficult to read because her anwers are in bold and there’s alot of interruptions by ads and such, but it’s spoiler free and good for a Twi-fix. I love that she considered all the fan suggestions for cast members (even though I didn’t really like any of the fan suggestions I saw back in the pre-movie days), I thought that was really sweet. She cares about us. Also, the dvd extras she’s talking about are giving me serious Twi-cravings.

That’s Georgia’s Top Picks in the world of Twi-news for now! Check back later, when I promise there will be some funtime rambles and rants about my two favourite Breaking Dawn vampires: Vladimir and Stefan!

p.s. I couldn’t sleep on Sat night, despite behind exhausted. And knowing I couldn’t actually absorb any new information from the book I’m currently reading (A Fraction of the Whole – Steve Toltz, it’s amazing, read it. Main characters name is Jasper.), I picked up Twilight and flicked through to Chapter 13 – only to find somehow the pages of my book were scattered with glitter! Coincidence? I think not!

Excuse me Twilighters everywhere. You, yes, you.

Hear the exciting news? Yeah, I heard it too. New Moon the movie! YAY!

If you want more details, check them out at Deadline Hollywood Daily and
Cinema Blend

Now, you might notice some of the comments people have made. Some very rude comments.

No, I’m not talking about the Twilight bashers who hate everything Twilight – I don’t care about those people, whatevs to them, they’re missing out.

The people who I have a bone to pick with are infact the Twilighters themselves. Team Edward girls, to be precise. (Just for the record, as I’ve previously mentioned, I am Team Edward.)

EXCUSE ME GIRLS! (and boys) What the hell? You call yourselves Twilight fans, yet you go bashing New Moon because omg, shock horror, Edward is missing for a fair chuck of the novel!

Furthermore, you go on and whinge about how you’re going to refuse to see the movie if they actually DARE focus on Bella and Jacob during that time Eddie is missing!

And THEN, to top it all off, you, yes you Team Edward-ers, who claim you know absolutely everything about Edward, say you will ONLY see the movie if they “flick across” to the “adventures” Edward and the Cullens were having “in Italy”, away from Bella.

Well it’s time for a reality check!

Have you read New Moon? I assume you have, if you are as in love with Edward as you claim to be. Because I’d like to make some things very clear.

First of all, there are many reasons why Edward leaves that turn into crucial events in the story:

1. Edward leaves Bella because he thinks she’ll be safer, but what we realise is that she isn’t.

2. We suffer with Bella whilst Edward is away, it makes us long for him even more.

3. Jacob is crucial to the storyline – in terms of the werewolves (Sam! Seth! Leah!), in terms of Renesmee. (Remember, the original sequel to Twilight was Forever Dawn, in which Jacob imprinted, despite having only been a minor character in the first book.)

4. Laurent and Victoria reappear (although Victoria is more illusive), which we also realise is crucial to the storyline.

5. Bella jumps off a cliff.

6. The Volturi would be difficult to introduce otherwise.

7. And finally, and most importantly, both Bella and the reader realise exactly WHAT is being sacrificed by Bella choosing to be with Edward, hopefully one day as a vampire.

Also, we must look at exactly what Edward was doing during the time he and Bella were apart. If you were a true Edward fan, you’d know what he was up to:

1. He tried tracking Victoria, and failed.

2. He then went and sat, in a corner (of sorts), still as a statue, and wallowed and moped. Because he missed his Bella, and he later told her that he was on the verge of coming back for her, before he found out she’d “died”.

3. He arrived, in Italy, only a few days before Bella. And he went to Italy to convince the Volturi to kill himself.

So, let me conclude thus far: Bella, in Forks, discovers werewolves and jumps off a cliff. Edward, in a corner somewhere, wallows and mopes and sits as still as a statue. He is not having “adventures in Italy”.

What’s going to make a more exciting movie? I think we all know the answer to that one.

Of course, I love looking at very pretty Robert Pattinson as much as the next girl. I’ve confessed that many a time. But really, he’d be sitting so still that it would be easier and cheaper to just download a picture of him and stare at it for about an hour. (Which is about the time I assume they’ll dedicate to Jacob time in the movie.)

And it’s just not THRILLING! Werewolves and cliff diving is far more thrilling.
Also, we must remember, the events in Italy take up a large chunk of the novel, and will no doubt end up being the focus of the movie, regardless. You’ll still get your Edward fill – not only in New Moon, but when Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are movie-fied also.

Also, just one more thing, I might be a very, very loyal Team Edward fan, but I want the story Stephenie Meyer wrote – I am loyal to her first and foremost – I do not want to watch Robert Pattinson sit in a corner JUST because he’s pretty. (I do that every day, he’s my laptop wallpaper!)
Remember – most of you hated him only a few short months ago. (I’m pretty sure I was the only girl on the planet who was pleased with his casting, initially.)

So if you’re really the Twilight fan you claim to be, you’d all stop bashing New Moon and Jacob – because you KNOW Bella picks Edward anyways, and because New Moon should be movie-fied as loyally to the book as is possible!

And you should all be thrilled that they’re turning the other books into movies – when initially, they were going to leave it at Twilight. I am really, honestly, absolutely psyched for both Twilight and New Moon, movie-fied!

My work here is done.

p.s. You may notice, under various New Moon movie-related articles, there are comments that read similarly to this one. That’s me. Infact, if you click on my name you SHOULD be redirected here or to my email. I don’t normally get stirred up over things like this, but man you guys really got my knickers in a knot!

I’ve watched the trailers a hundred times each, I’m pretty sure I’ve watched every tiny little piece of sneaky fan footage and all the various interviews floating around. And I’ve studied every single ‘official picture’ and ‘sneaky fan picture’ in detail.

And now we have trailer NUMBER THREE! Yay!

I attached the countdown to my facebook, and I raced home from work to watch those final eight minutes, only to have my little heart broken when they played the second trailer. Of course, the countdown was only until the morning of (in America), not the actual release time.
But it was there for me, ready when I woke up, and I watched it over and over until I had to leave for work. (Yes, I’ve been working way too many shifts and neglecting university – but it’s been fun.)

So now, I give to you: all my many reactions to this final little installment of funtimes before we actually get to go to the cinemas! (Which is December 11 here down under.)

My first reaction was irritation, I’d seen Tyler’s car swerve and roll out of control towards Bella, 100 times before. I’d seen Edward jump in and do his intense little glary thing. Excuse me people, I wanted more!
…And then Eddie got up and jumped over the truck and away from the car wreck scene. I’d seen this through video footage from some sneaky fans previously, but it was much nicer to see it in high quality.

I was also disappointed by the repeat of the “You’re impossibly fast, and strong.” spiel by Bella, I’d already seen than a hundred times. Yes, we know you’re afraid, come on, show me something new!

But let me get onto some of my best and favourite and most-able-to-nitpick-over scenes from the new trailer!

THEY SHOWED THE SCENE AT THE RESTAURANT!
Photobucket
(Please note that this is an official still and not from the trailer.)

This was our first glimpse of such a crucial scene! Something new! Something exciting! Something… wait, that’s not a booth and they sure aren’t sitting in an Italian restaurant…

Yes, I like to nitpick. It’s what I do. I nitpicked my whole way through Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone movie – despite the fact that I was only a tweenie at the time. However, I have not since nitpicked ONCE about another Harry Potter movie – except in extreme circumstances. And I promise you, whilst I’ll nitpick about Twilight, I won’t do the same for the next three movies UNLESS they start trying to cut out/merge the werewolves because there’s “just too many”. (Ok, maybe they can cut out Collin and Brady – but no one else! I draw the line there!)

Where’s the privacy when you’re sitting in the middle of a restaurant, man? Ok, so nobody puts Baby in the corner, but goddamnit, you should’ve put Bella and Edward there!

Having said that, the actual dialogue spinnets we hear are fabulous! I am mucho excitedo!

Then, whilst we listen to Bella ramble off her theories about Edward, we see him climbing a tree. Why is Edward climbing a tree? Excuse me, am I the ONLY one who has noticed the fact that someone in this movie must clearly have a tree fetish because in just about every scene I’ve seen, they’ve been climbing trees, clinging to trees, hanging out in trees, just generally being tree-ish! Now I like trees… Infact, I’d go as far as saying I love them, I really do. But I don’t have a creepy fetish for them. These people obviously do. Maybe we should get them some serious help?

OR MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST SQUEAL IN DELIGHT BECAUSE THE TREE FETISH THING WAS THE MOST SUPER COOL IDEA EVER! (Yes, I’m being serious.) I love the idea that they’re hanging out in trees, I honestly wish we had trees around here that I could do the same in. And those sweeping shots around the two hanging out high up in the branches are epic. Absolutely epic. (But more about the actual tree-hanging-out-in later.)

Photobucket
CHECK OUT THOSE CLIMBING SKILLS!

Please may I have one of those trees planted in my backyard? I will break the Australian water restrictions to keep it! I absolutely and most certainly must have a Forks tree!

But the trees weren’t the only things I liked in the trailer…

When Edward gets all tough and manly and vampirey on us, breaking trees and running fast… I… Wait… wasn’t he supposed to be sparkling when he was breaking that tree? Man I love that they must be keeping his sparkles a secret until the movies – that is the one thing I’m looking forward to more than any other. I’ll probably faint when I see it.

“What if I’m not the hero, what if I’m the bad guy?” Excuse me, whilst I swoon.

*swoon*

This voiceover occurs during my absolute best and favourite scene thus far in ANY trailer/still/sneaky footage/other:
Photobucket
What a smug bastard. Look at him, he can’t wipe that smile off his face. All the while, everyone else is parting like the Red Sea for Moses. Well I would be too if I was 108-odd years old and had just snagged me a 17 year old girlfriend. How’s that for skill. Lol.
Oh man, I couldn’t resist that one – even though my freakish obsession scares most people away. I am a very very loyal little Twilighter – I just have a really wicked (but not necessarily good) sense of humour.

That is most certainly my ABSOLUTE BEST AND FAVOURITE SCENE THUS FAR!

But I digress – as I still have much to talk about.

The Meadow. At least, I assume that’s the Meadow. And once again, I assume Edward isn’t sparkling because that’s a surprise. Best. Surprise. Ever. I can’t help it, but my expecations just keep getting higher. He better sparkle brighter than I glow neon on the first day of summer. How much longer must you keep this from me? Oh yeah… December 11.

And now, I have to nitpick a little again…

“Say it outloud, say it.” Since when did Edward become so domineering? Yes, once again I’m nitpicking – but as I said, I gotta do it and it’s only this one little time. I promise to be the BEST little Twilighter for the rest of the movies! It creeped me out. Please Edward, can’t we just go back to your house and get our cuddle on? (And by ‘we’ I mean me and you, no Bella please. :P)

Yeah the kiss was hot and I fell out of my chair and whatever. We all know how we all reacted. We don’t need to go into detail. Although I’d like to stop here and question the PG rating – man they looked like they were about to get their naked on! (I would not object to naked Edward.)

I loved the scene where James and co are ripping apart the security guard, it was awesome. I almost kinda wish James wasn’t ripped apart at the end by Eddie now – movie James is way cooler than book James.

I am super psyched for that scene where Alice and Emmett and Jasper go all kung-fu on James’ ass. That’s also going to be superb. I know it’s only a one second clip, but I just kept rewinding back and watching it over and over.

Photobucket
I’ve not seen anything cooler than that, yet.
I dare you to find me something cooler.

Now, obviously I know there was much trailer to discuss and I only picked out bits and pieces. But seriously, if I went through every tiny little second of that trailer with you, I’d have a novel. And I would publish it and sell it at work for $22.95.

Overall, I loved it. I am so utterly impressed with how closely they’ve tried to stick to the storyline. I am so often disappointed when books are turned into movies and I really REALLY like where Twilight the movie is headed – my nitpicking is just because I have OCD (Obsessive Cullen Disorder for those out of the loop) and I nitpick when I’m procrastinating. Yes, I have to write a 2000 word history essay on Margaret Thatcher.

I am really really super absolutely excited. I have mega jitters.

So now that my little rant is over, what were your favourite bits? Did you find yourselves nitpicking too? And what do you think of them hiding the sparkles from us?

p.s. Those stills are from various sources, I obviously don’t own them! – HGE, Twilight Australia, the Twilight German Site, etc. Most can be found via the URLs on my sidebar. —->

I shall make this very clear now: I love Leah. She is my best and favourite werewolf and my best and favourite minor character. Alright? And to all you Leah-haters out there: whatever in your face. You clearly know nothing about life and broken hearts and having to always be around the boy you can’t have and all that stuff.

Why do I love Leah? Well first of all, she’s got super spunk. Ok, sure so with Sam’s pack she used to stir fights and controversies – but put yourself in her paws, honestly. Imagine having to be around the boy who broke your heart, to have to hear his thoughts, especially as he would almost always be thinking about his new girl. It’d just about kill me if I were in her shoes, I’d go absolutely crazy. Absolutely crazy. Ok, so Leah’s a “harpy” but man, Jacob was being a complete hypocrite calling her that.

Second of all, she is a great big sister to Seth. Ok, so she teases her brother ‘Mum dropped him alot when he was a baby.’, but don’t we all make fun of our siblings? It’s kind’ve expected. And she always worries about him, looks out for him, makes sure he doesn’t become a ‘vampire chew toy’ – even if half her excuse for that is to get away from Sam. (But wouldn’t you also look for any excuse to get away from Sam?)

Now don’t go claiming that you wouldn’t act like Leah if you were in her shoes! I know you would. I know I have! She’s not so different from the rest of us girls. Ok, so she can shapeshift into a werewolf, and has super strength and her body temperature would kill any ordinary girl, but she longs for acceptance and to find someone who will look after her and love her and make her feel the way Sam did and she has human emotions. Don’t tell me you didn’t want revenge when you had your heart trashed. Man I know Sam tries, but that doesn’t help her at all.

And ok, she hates Bella. But wouldn’t you? No Bella, no vampire problem, no werewolves, her and Sam might’ve still been together. Or at the very least she would’ve stayed human, stayed out of Sam’s thoughts and not been menopausal. That’s enough of a reason to hate Bella, in my opinion. (Note: I adore Bella, but this isn’t about her, it’s about Leah so whatever in your face times two!)

Leah’s got nerve, like Hannah Montana sings about having. Infact, I bet she often asked herself:
Photobucket
Well I’ll tell you now, Leah. Hannah Montana would write a song about it and then she’d plot some really intricate plan where she used her Hannah Montana-ness against her opponent. After all, who says you can’t be Superman? Hannah sure doesn’t!

“This is making me sick, Jacob. Can you imagine what this feels like to me? I don’t even like Bella Swan. And you’ve got me grieving over this leech-lover like I’m in love with her, too. Can you see where that might be a little confusing? I dreamed about kissing her last night! What the hell am I supposed to do with that?”

Ok, here she comes across like a total bitch. But she’s not just whinging about her dream man, she’s telling Jacob to drink a cup of concrete and toughen the hell up, because Bella’s obviously never going to pick him just like Sam didn’t pick her so whatever in his face. Now, I totally felt for Jake at that point, the poor kid, but Leah’s right – he needed more than a cup of concrete, he needed some coffee in that and a few whole chilies. She was just trying to help him get over it, in her own, albeit slightly unusual, way. Remember, Leah and Jake eventually bond – the fact that both had suffered from torturous broken hearts was not coinky-dink, peoples!

Finally, the reason I love Leah is that she is an unresolved character. Everyone else is pretty much resolved. Jacob and Renesmee will be forever happy together, as will Edward and Bella and the rest of the Cullens. Many of the other werewolves imprinted and Seth is still a baby. Leah, menopausal at twenty and finally having escaped Sam leaves the world of Twilight open for us to maybe return one day. I’m surely not the only one who wants to find out if Leah ever imprints or manages to make sexy times and have tiny werewolf babies with her hottie imprintee.

So we conclude here, and whoever still disagrees with me about Leah:
Photobucket
As in, Leah will kick your puny human bum into infinity, because she’s super tough and all. Yeah.

Today’s character of choice is the topic of the moment: Renesmee.

Love her or hate her, she’s there and you can’t get rid of her.

Now, Renesmee is obviously a half-breed (which Draco Malfoy would say is dirty :P), being that daddy is a vampire and mummy was a human at the time. This frustrated many readers, including myself initially. You can see my rant on “Why didn’t Edward use protection?” in my post When a mummy and a daddy love eachother very much, they call the Stork! at my other blog. Of course, the debate over whether or not Bella and Edward could’ve had a baby is not the only thing that needs considering!

First of all, why is Renesmee so perfect?
Well, did you know that no matter how ugly you are/you think you are, your mum and dad still think you’re pretty special, and that you’re very attractive. Did you not realise, after all this time, that this book is from BELLA’S point of view (except for the bit that isn’t) and thus her perception of Renesmee is obviously going to be bias. Renesmee could look like a gremlin as per the post at Lauren’s Bite, for all we know! Really, no matter what she looked like, Bella would’ve cooed over her.

What is that you say? Charlie thought she was pretty? Charlie is her granddad, nuff said. Same goes for all the Cullens. Although, I reckon Emmett would’ve been pretty blunt had the baby been a really ugly mutant. So we can assume that she is at least a humanoid and that she is cute.

Having said all this, have you ever seen an ugly baby? I mean in real life, not on the tv or in a magazine where the babies are mutated for fun times. I have never seen an ugly baby. From this, we can conclude that as long as Renesmee is humanoid, she is cute.

Jacob, of course, is clearly not thinking straight when he looks at Renesmee and thus also cannot be seen as a reliable source of the true Renesmee. See! All this bias and you guys are RANTING on about how much you hate this perfect baby. Maybe this baby isn’t perfect? Maybe she won’t be as pretty as Edward and Bella when she stops growing because she hasn’t got complete vampire blood?

Now, I’ll be the first to admit, Renesmee is not my favourite character. Infact, she annoys me alot. Or is it Bella’s perception that annoys me? Quite possibly. After all, eventually we all do get a bit sick of people cooing about their perfect children who are in actual fact normally the ones that are the biggest brats. (Yes, I can say this, I get on famously with children and as a babysitter I know how parents get.) But I don’t think Renesmee is really that much of a brat, she’s maturing too fast.

I think, for most of the anti-Renesmee people out there, the big issue was not Renesmee herself, but what Renesmee does to the story: she took up all Bella’s attention and SIDELINED Edward. How could she?! This story is supposed to be theirs, not hers. And we got less Edward with the introduction of the offspring. We got more Jacob though, much more Jacob. Which didn’t fuss me, but I’m sure irritated any anti-Jacobers out there. (p.s. stop being cold, if you have ever EVER been in a situation like Jacob’s, where you suffer unrequited love whilst the object of your affection runs off with someone you feel is bad for them you’d totally understand and love him too. even if you are staunchly team Edward)

Now, where were we?

Ah yes.

1. Bella is obviously bias because Renesmee is her child.
2. Same goes for Charlie and the Cullens.
3. Renesmee sidelined Edward.
4. Jacob too, because of the imprint.
5. Stop being nasty to Jake.
6. I’m Team Edward.
7. Is the irritating character Renesmee or really Bella because of the way she sees Renesmee?

Let us continue.

Did anyone else find it incredibly annoying that when Renesmee was eaten out of Bella’s stomach she was automatically liked? After having been the horrid Bella-killer after all this time. Man, if I was Edward and Bella was carrying a killer mutant, I’d secretly find a way to abort it in her sleep – regardless of the consequences.

And if I were the Cullens, I’d be more like Alice, because she was cautious of the half breed Bella-killer. I’d steer way clear of anything that almost destroyed someone I loved that much! (Even if it was cute.) Although, I guess eventually she’d grow on me, but only cos I really like babies!

When I read about everyone just instantly liking Renesmee right after her birth, I texted my bestie, outraged. Especially Jacob imprinting! I was so upset:

“HOW COULD JACOB IMPRINT ON THAT MUTANT CREATURE? HOW COULD STEPHENIE MEYER DO THAT TO HIM? HE’S BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH AND THIS IS WHAT HE GETS? HOW RUDE!”

Lucky I continued reading, huh?

For now, let us conclude on Renesmee. If I decide there’s something I should add, I will. (Maybe about the other vampires – like Dracula 1 and Dracula 2 and Zafrina)

Renesmee was evil, but then she wasn’t. She’s still a little annoying. She’ll grow up. She got a happy ending. Yay.

Next time: Leah Clearwater. Because she is my best and favourite minor character.

p.s. Leah would make a far better spin off than Renesmee. Renesmee got her happy ending, we all know she’ll grow up and be happy with Jake forever. Leah has been left unresolved – ergo SM should develop her. Far more interesting read guaranteed.

xoxo.
