i laughed so hard at the “i don’t know” and “something is wrong”
the twilight one is like abstract poetry
They all kind of read like weird little stories in and of themselves. HG is about an amnesia victim trying to recall the facts people have told her about herself, but which she doesn’t remember. Twilight is a love story about two mimes. And Harry Potter is the tragic story of boy whom absolutely nothing happens to.
the harry potter one is like waiting for godot. (maybe “waiting for godric gryffindor”?)
His lips crushed mine, stopping my protest. He kissed me angrily, roughly, his other hand gripping tight around the back of my neck, making escape impossible. I shoved against his chest with all my strength, but he didn’t even seem to notice. His mouth was soft, despite the anger, his lips molding to mine in a warm, unfamiliar way.
I grabbed at his face, trying to push it away, failing again. He seemed to notice this time, though, and it aggravated him. His lips forced mine open, and I could feel his hot breath in my mouth.
Acting on instinct, I let my hands drop to my side, and shut down. I opened my eyes and didn’t fight, didn’t feel… just waited for him to stop.
“Millions of Twilight fans out there just cannot wait to see this. It’s almost heartbreaking because they don’t want it to be over. It’s a little bittersweet, isn’t it?” (x)
(Answer: “Umm. FOR THEM!”)
When is his long international nightmare contractually over? Monday after the box office numbers come in? Is there a Sparkle Protection Program he can go into? RUN, TAKE ONLY THE VODKA, KEEP RUNNING AND DON’T LOOK BACK
“Back again is Bella’s best friend Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), who you recall is now a shape-shifter who turns into a wolf. Enraged by Bella’s pregnancy, he summons his pack. The wolves, it must be said, are underwhelming as a pack. They become huge ferocious beasts with sharp fangs, and hurtle at top speed through the forest, and… well, that’s about it. They’re always hurtling somewhere. Hurtle, hurtle.”
“And don’t worry, Twiharders, Bill Condon does absolutely nothing to elevate the quality of this material, so you don’t need to imagine that an acclaimed director was somehow able to change the ridiculous storytelling of Stephenie Meyer and make it passable for normal human consumption. It is still the terrible mess that she created, now with bonus terrible acting.”
“We get shots of the smiling guests. Many are familiar from the previous movies, but others on both sides of the aisle are new to us. They fascinated me. What were they thinking? How many knew Bella was marrying a vampire? Were they cool with that? Did anyone wonder why Edward apparently possessed not a single relative older than himself?”
“The key thing Condon promises: the last half hour of Breaking Dawn part 1 is a full-on horror movie, from the wolf attack to the birth scene. It won’t feel like a shmoopy romance, but a full-bore horror film. “Everything’s really coming at you from all sides in the last 30 minutes of this movie.””
