They look hot! Twilight HOT!


I know Anastasia is gonna kill me because she isn't too fond of the book, but I gotta admit they look so adorable in this pic! Awww Bella and Edward, LOL.

I already bought my ticket to see the movie, I am excited to see how it turns out in comparison to the book as well!

Both my sister-in-laws are obsessed with this series! haha

Janelle said...

Haha I love these Twilight posts! They all look so good in those pics, gah I'm excited to watch! :)

Phyrra said...

I love that last shot where everyone is so cuddley and affectionate. That makes me happy :)

I didn't like the way some things were written in the series, but I understand why she used them as plot devices, and I enjoyed the story overall.

I still probably prefer Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels or Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, but Twilight was pretty enjoyable.

she looks way different than the conservative, dumpy, homey self in the movie. i wonder how it will all turn out. so this is the new harry potter. i miss anne rice.

With all the tv spots and clips that have come out online, the movie looks promising.

I think I spoiled it for myself already lol.

Love love love your blog, Vanessa =)

never seen this or heard of it...

Raiza said...

I love the books!

I'm dragging my bf to watch it with my on the day it comes out.

Emeria said...

they look hot there..but to me i feel like she's the wrong person..maybe its the voice? I kinda pictured her a little prettier :[

Anastasia said...

Graaaah. I just finished the second book, I downloaded an e-book (e-mail me or leave a comment on my blog's chatbox with your e-mail or something if you want it) because I refuse to give that woman more money for her trash.

I will admit, I found myself feeling emotional in some of the scenes, not because I cared for the characters but because it was making me miss my boyfriend, who's away on business.

Nevertheless, I still HATE Bella vehemently and want her to die. She's a thoroughly awful person, just as pathetic, useless and horrible in the second book as the first, and the worst possible example to young girls I could imagine. Let's just encourage everyone who's been dumped to jump off a cliff! Yay!


It was mildly entertaining, I wasn't surprised once. Absolutely every "plot" device was contrived and obvious and pretty much everything in the second book was completely obvious in the first. Perhaps because it's been done a thousand times.

Not to mention all the sneaky Mormon references Meyer slaps in there.

Anastasia said...

Furthermore, for the sake of teenage girls everywhere, I feel it needs to be pointed out that if you (not, y'know, YOU, but anyone) behave like Bella, justifiably no one should ever, ever love you. Horrible, horrible Mary Sue. "Isabella Swan", pfft.

Crystal Gale said...

I'm really curious about this series..I'm still debating wether I first watch the movie then read the book or read the book first then watch the movie? hehe any suggestion Vanessa? :)

Emeria said...

I know Bella isn't suppose to be a "Rosalie," but someone better should have played. Well who am I to judge. I haven't seen the movie yet..I'm so excited though for it!!

Emily Browning's eyes have a very intense/ childlike innocence quality. Her lips are very Angelina Joliesque so I don't think she would have made a good Bella either lookwise, but I think more so then Kristin Stweart. It's the voice!! Sounds a bit too masculine for me!!

sab said...

omg! they're all so hot!

Anastasia said...

I think Timothy Spall would've been great as Bella.

I can't get over how incredibly EMO New Moon was, ugh. Not to mention all the racist Mormon references to "perfect pale white skin"! And there will never ever be any fighting, sex, or conflict at all in any of these books, because Edward is the picture of a good Mormon boy who would never do such a thing.

Guys, the new Artemis Fowl book is out. That's a good book, go and spend money on that, instead.

JennBee said...

I'm choosing to ignore everything Anastasia has said, because it is downright rude and harsh to those of us who actually sympathize with characters like Bella. Personally I'm sick of all female characters being expected to be strong, courageous and perfect all the time - THAT would be a Mary Sue, but I don't think Anastasia knows what it really means. Haha. Anyway, I have respect for Bella, and I empathize with some of her hardships. I think she's a great character.

Anyway, I don't know if the movie will end up anywhere near as good as the book, but we can only hope. These pictures of the cast are gorgeous, though! They look way better here than in the trailers, that's for sure!

Anastasia said...

@Jennbee: I apologise if I've offended you, and I don't want to get into a slinging match with you, especially not over something as daft as a book. I will, however, defend my opinion.

From Urban Dictionary, on the Mary Sue:

"The Mary Sue character is almost always beautiful, smart, etc... In short, she is the "perfect" girl. The Mary Sue usually falls in love with the author's favorite character(s) and winds up upstaging all of the other characters in the book/series/universe.

Victim!Sues: The Victim!Sue is your whiny, wimpy, pathetic female character who can't seem to do much of anything except cry and get herself into trouble that the romantic interest of the fic has to rescue her from.

Another thing to note is that a Sue will usually have a completely off-the-wall name, like "Viquetoria". The more weird and pretentious the name of the character, the more likely it is that she's a Sue."

Isabella Swan, who's so beautiful every age-appropriate male in the story is in love with her by chapter 50, but doesn't believe she is (ergo, no ego), is also extremely clever and was in an advanced program in Phoenix. She's whiny, totally helpless and needs rescuing from anything from crossing the street to walking down the stairs.

"Finally, Sues often have wierd, improbable or impossible bloodlines."

She's a human who's immune to many of the vampire's abilities and apparently smells extraordinarily good. I believe that sums her up fairly well, and her continual ungrateful/emo/whiny/suicidal attitude is a bad role model for young girls and an insult to anyone who has been through real hardship.

There's a difference between being strong and throwing yourself off a cliff and considering your life completely worthless without a boy.

I think part of my distaste for the series is the continual stream of racist Mormon references to Edward's "perfect white skin", as this kind of reference is littered throughout LDS literature (Don't believe me? Check it out )and shouldn't be perpetuated in a book meant for teenagers just because the author is religious.

Surely I can't be all bad, I offered to send people the first two e-books so they can read it.

Piece of Cake said...

I saw the series translated books on the bookstore 3 days ago. Out of curiosity I picked up the first 2 books and haven't stopped reading the series. I just finished the 3rd book this afternoon and will go to the bookstore to pick up the 4th book. No translated version yet but I'm crossing my fingers that Breaking Dawn will be on the shelf.

@Anastasia :
I can't understand why "perfect white skin" reference matters much? After all, aren't they supposed to be real white? I'll be a tad disappointed if the main character's skins were olive, that's not exactly what I picture vampire should look like.
