The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer

Name:

Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

Casting for Coverns released by Summit!! :)

Summit release the casting decisions for the amazon coven, the egyptian coven, the irish coven, the romanian coven, the american nomads, and the europeaon nomads!! This is exciting...Breaking Dawn is getting close to beging production, all of this casting information is being released!! :) It's so exciting to be getting news!!

In the Amazon coven:

  • Tracey Heggins is Senna - She is a smaller actress and i havnt seen anything she had been in (even though i recognise Brothers and Sister), she is really beautiful!! I can totally imagine her being part of the amazon coven. Tracey is going to look incredible when her hair and make-up are done, with her costume on and the contacts!! :) I'm happy with Summit's casting of Senna.

  • Judi Shekoni is Zafrina - I was always really excited about Zafrina because i think that she is one of the most interesting, and outstanding of the smaller vampires in Breaking Dawn. Renesmee has a special realtionship with her, so i'd like to see if or how that is portrayed on screen. Along with Tracey, Judi is really beautiful!! Like really...these Twilight films are really bad for my self-esteen because everyone is so beautful!!


  • The Egypitian coven:

  • Omar Metwally is Amun - To be honest, i don't remember who Amun is. LOL What a bad twihard i am!! Anyway, i really like Omar! It's awesome to know that Summit hired Omar because he is egyptian just like Amun is!! I don't know if that played into his advantage or not, but it's just a fun little fact. Once again, i have not seen anything Moar has been in, so i'm assuming that Summit are choosing not very well known actors which is awesome becasue it will launch their carear and will help the audience suspend their disbelief.

  • Andrea Gabriel is Kebi - I can't remeber who Kebi is either...i think i need to read Breaking Dawn again to refresh my memory because these smaller characters were only in it briefly and there were SO many of them in a short period of time. So, it was hard to remember them. Andrea is SO gorgeous!! Seriously, i bet she was a model at one point in her life, or could have been she is THAT gorgeous!! She is most known for LOST. I've never been a big fan of LOST but she is more famous than the others.

  • Rami Malek is Benjamin - When i was reading, i imagined Benjamin a lot younger than Rami. For some reason i can't remember, i thought that Benjamin was supposed to be about 16 or 17. I love Benjamin as a character with a SUPER cool power. He can control the elements which is really awesome power to have. But, Rami is really cute and i'd imagine that he would play a good Benjamin. I have faith in Summit so i must respect their casting decision.

  • Angela Sarafyan is Tia - It's really sad but i can't remember who Tia is :( I really gotta re-read Breaking Dawn. Wow, Angela is really...different looking. She can look beautiful in some pictures, and very strange in others. I'm sure the hair and make-up will make her look super beautiful because vampires are supposed to be. I'm kinda unsure about her but i don't wanna judge her harshy when i havnt even seen her act.


  • The Irish Coven:

  • Marlane Barnes is Maggie - I vaguley remember Maggie in Breaking Dawn and Marlane is super adorable. I don't know how old she is but i would be guessing about 16. She is really adorable and i can see her playing a vampire. :) I'm really happy with her being cast as Maggie. BTW, she would have made an amazing Jessica physically...but i still LOVE Anna Kendrick's performance.

  • Lisa Howard is Siobhan - I can't really remember who Siobhan is but Lisa is pretty so i'm guessing that she fits the description. She has been in a lot of movies, tv series etc but i havnt seen any of them. I think that Siobhan is going to be a mother figure because she looks a lot older than all of the other vampires.

  • Patrick Brennan is Liam - I can't remember who Liam is. I REALLY need to read Breaking Dawn again. Considering Breaking Dawn wasnt my favourite, and i've been so busy with school i have not had time. Patrick is alright...i don't really have a strong opinion on him right now. I suppose he'll do. It's only a small role but i guess Summit released them becasue the fans are so hardcore about Twilight and all of the characters despite how small they are. He's alright.


  • The Romanian Coven:

  • Noel Fisher is Vladimir - OMG i LOVE Vladimir!! He is seriously awesome!!! :) I'm so glad that Melissa Rosenberg didnt cut him from Breaking Dawn. However, considering Stephenie Meyer is a producer on Breaking Dawn, i don't think she'd let that happen. Plus, Vladimir and Stefan are going to be useful tools for comic relief when it's so serious about everyone dying. I like Noel...i think he looks super innocent and youthful that he will be super scary and awesome when he is a vampire.

  • Guri Weinberg is Stefan - I'm so excited for Vladimir and Stefan to be depicted on screen. However, it's going to be two years untill we see them on screen in Breaking Dawn part 2. I think that Guri is a good choice for Stefan and he has actally been in some films i've heard of. Guri was in that awful tv show Burn Notice and he was in You Don't Mess With The Zohan with Adam Sandler, and lastly Munich with Eric Bana, Geoffrey Rush and Daniel Craig. I'm really excited to see him act and just overall the depiction of these two. They kinda remind me of Rosencrantz and Guilderstern from Shakespeare's Hamlet.


  • The American Nomads:

  • Lee Pace is Garrett - I don't know what i think about Lee being Garrett. I hope he had the acting chops to pull it off because Garrett is really uncomfortable and looses it. I'm not familar with Lee's work although he has been in The Good Shepard, and the recent animation Maraduke. I'm excited to see him as Garrett is a really complex and interesting character. I get the feeling that many of these characters won't get much screen time just because of time contraints. That would be a shame but i suppose that these characters are not that important to focus lots of time on.

  • Mary - Toni Trucks is Mary - I just gotta say she is SO beautiful!!! I have not seen anything she has been in but she has been in a few popular movies. She was in the tv series Veronica Mars that i used to watch and she was in Music and Lyrics with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. I'm really happy with Toni's casting even if i don't remember who Mary is. I can't wait to see her portrayal of Mary though.

  • Randall - Bill Tangradi is Randall - I briefly remember Randall. But wow, Bill has been in a lot of tv series. He has been in Law and Order, Without A Trace, Criminal Minds, Medium, Numb3rs, Castle and The Good Wife. He hasnt done a lot of bigger project but he sure has done the tv circuit. I'm excited to see him as Randall because i'm just excited for every character, no matter how small they are.

  • Erik Odom is Peter - I wasnt sure if Peter was going to be included because he wasnt even mentioned in Eclipse when Peter and Charlotte were first introduced in the books. However, it doesnt matter that they were added in late just like Harry, Sue, Leah and Seth Clearwater were. I really like Erik...he is really cute!! I can imagine he'd make a gorgeous vampire. He hasnt been in much, but i don't think Summit would just hire anyone.

  • Valorie Curry is Charlotte - Wow, Valorie is a lot different to what i thought Charlotte was going to be. I thought that Charlotte would have long gorgeous hair and be very femine but fierce at the same time. She hated the vampire wars and ran away with Peter, so i thought she would be very caring as a newborn vampire. However, Valorie is gorgeous, and they may just put a wig on her like they did with some of the other actors such as Edi Gathegi, Taylor Lautner, Michael Sheen and Kristen Stewart. I'm excited to see how she will act :)


  • The European Nomads:

    Alistair - Joe Anderson - Wow...he is really cute and plus, he is British :) He is going to be an awesome Alistair. I don't really remember much about Alistair but i think he was the vampire who freaked out and ran off before the Volturi showed up. I really need to read Breaking Dawn again. Well, at least the last half of it. Joe is really cute, and i'm an really excited about his performance. He had done some theater where he performed Shakespeare. Anything to do with Shakespeare completley wins me over...so i'm happy with Joe being Alistair.

    Overall, i'm pretty happy with the casting decision. I tried not to be too harsh as i don't want to judge them before i even see them in costume and their acting. But, just based on the pictures on IMDB, i'm pretty happy. I'm so excited that Breaking Dawn is really happening :) We only have to wait just over a year for Part One!! I'm super excited!! :) As much as i'm dying to see it...i'm glad it far away because Breaking Dawn is the last book, and when it's over i don't know what i'll do. But anyway, I'm excited :) Thanks Summit for releasing this :) All the fans really appreciate it.

    Denali Coven Has Been Cast!!! :)

     The Denali's have been cast!! :) YES!! Finally some Breaking Dawn cast information!! So, Eleazar is Christian Camargo, Tanya is Myanna Buring, Kate is Casey LaBow, Carmen is Mia Maestro, and Irnia is Maggie Grace, which we already knew.

    Christian Camargo - The most well-known films Christian has been in are The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dexter (he probably knows Melissa Rosenberg), and The Hurt Locker!! Wow...even though he hasn’t been in much...The Hurt Locker?? Oscar nominated film last year!!! So, I’m thinking that Christian is going to be a very good actor. I don't remember him in The Hurt Locker...but it's an incredible movie! I have a good feeling about Christian....I just want to find out what his personality is like. Whether he has a personality more like Peter Facinelli or Rob Pattinson. Interesting.

    Myanna Buring - She hasn’t really been in anything, apart from a small role in Midsummer Murders. Since she is Swedish I’m guessing that all of those projects are from Sweden or a just really unknown US films. I'm not too happy about Myanna being cast as Tanya. I picture Tanya will long strawberry blond curls, kinda like Taylor Swift’s hair, and a models body. Of course that's impossible because they need an actress who can act but I imagined someone totally different. She was supposed to be other love interest for Edward, and Bella noticed that she was gorgeous. Myanna is pretty but not gorgeous. However, with the right hair stylist, make-up and wardrobe...I may be totally wrong...but right now I’m not really happy with Summits choice.

    Casey LaBow - Casey has only been in two movies I know, a small role on CSI: New York and she was in a small indie film called Skateland, and I have only heard of that because Ashley Greene was in it. I'm not too sure of her acting capabilities, but I’m guessing that Ashley might have suggested her to Summit for a role. That's just my speculating, but it's possible. I think she would be a good Kate...but I don't want to judge yet, because she may be an awful actress or a really great one. I will wait until I see her performance. Also, she looks a bit like a blonde Rachelle.

    Mia Maestro - The only thing I know of that Mia has done is Alias, which wasn’t a very good show. It wasn’t her fault; I just didn’t enjoy the story line at all. Anyway, I’m not sure about her acting ability, but she is beautiful. I totally imagined Carmen looking like that. Her hair was a little big different, but close enough. I'm really excited to see what she looks like in her costume because I think she is almost perfect for Carmen.

    Overall, I’m pretty happy with the casting by Bill Condon. I'm trying to be objective because the actors are obviously not going to look like they do now during the filming Breaking Dawn. There is going to be hair, make-up, contacts, costumes and then of course, their acting. I'm trying to remain open-minded. I remember when I was upset about some things Summit did, but they turned out to be great; like hiring Chris Weitz and David Slade to direct. I trust Summit know what they are doing, and I’m sure they are not going to do anything to piss of the fans. I'm pretty confident and I can't wait to see their performances next year!!

    Ohhh, hurry up Breaking Dawn!!!

    Renesmee cast????

    There have been rumours going around that Summit is making a deal with Mackenzie Foy for the role of Renesmee.

    I have been worried for some time about how they are going to create Renesmee. That's been one of my biggest concerns. I'm hoping that they will combine both a human girl and CGI to make Renesmee and it looks like that is what they are going to do.

    Anyway, i really think that Mackenzie would be a super cute Renesmee. Of course, they are going to have to dye her hair, curl it, and digitally change the colour of her eyes (i don't know if the little one will be able to use contacts) to make her perfect.

    Plus, for Renesmee when she is really little...i think they are just going to take Mackenzie's face and use CGI to make her younger. I don't know if Summit are going to use it, but the technology that was used for Benjamin Button would be great for Renesmee. I mean, they made Brad Pitt look 80 years old and then look like a newborn baby.

    I have the idea that in the film, Summit might make Renesmee grow faster than she did in the book, just for visual purposes because she is going to be so hard to capture without looking fake, or cheesy. I'm really hoping they do a good job. However, considering Summit have over 2 year to work on Renesmee, i think she will turn out well.

    Hoping for the best...but i have faith in Summit. They have not disappointed the fans before.

    Maggie Grace cast as Irina!!!

    Maggie Grace has been cast as Irina!!!! I know Irina isn’t really a big role, and she does end up dying, but she plays a pivotal component to the plot. Without Irina, the Volturi would have never known about Renesmee and not cause the massive climatic scene at the end of Breaking Dawn.
    Maggie is really pretty, so physically i can see her as Irina. However, i've never seen her in anything. The most popular show she appeared in was Lost. So, i'm just hoping she is a good actor. I don't think Summit would employ a bad actor, but they did hire Kristen Stewart. I'm not going to judge her before i see her act, so i guess i'll have to wait until Breaking Dawn Part 1 comes out.

    Overall, i'm pretty happy with Maggie. Now, the next question is: Who will be Tanya? I'm dying to know who they are going to get to play the woman interested in Edward. This is going to be interesting. I'd be really upset if they cut Tanya, but i don't think they will. Stephenie Meyer is a producer, and Summit know if they cut fan-favourite characters, they Twilight fan will be upset!!

    SO EXCITED FOR BREAKING DAWN!!! :)

    Breaking Dawn filming schedule and Eclipse DVD release

    I have not blogged in a while, because there has literally been no Twilight news since the release of Eclipse!! But, now we got something :) The Breaking Dawn filming schedule!!! This is from a reliable source, Gossip Cop...They are reporting that Breaking Dawn is going to be filmed in the beginning of November up until March 15. I'm pretty happy with that because it is two movies...so they are going to have to cram allot in. But, i think they can handle it. Tight schedules should be a norm on the Twilight movies!! :) Oh, and i just found out that Eclipse will be on DVD early November sometime...so i'm happy to see that so soon!! :) I wonder what extra's we are going to get!! :) I hope that David Slade is generous with what he puts on.

    USA Todays article "Adults fret that 'Eclipse' lacks good role models for teens"

    I know that this is criticising Twilight, but i found this really interesting. As much as i love the saga, i totally agree with everything they're saying. This is USA Today's article:

    "By Maria Puente, USA TODAY

    The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is at the top of the box office, but as teenage heroine Bella Swan moves inevitably toward marriage with a vampire, some wonder if she's such an exemplary role model for the girls who follow her adventures in the hugely popular books and movies.

    It's a rerun of an old debate: Can pop culture — books, movies, music — influence the behavior of impressionable teenagers, and in the case of Bella, is that a good thing or a bad thing?
    REVIEW: 'Eclipse' is fairly anemic.
    And, for that matter, are teens really all that impressionable? After all, they've been reading Romeo and Juliet for 400 years.
    Bella, for the few who have avoided the Twilight tidal wave, is a teenager who's so in love with an undead guy that she's ready to give up everything to be turned into a vampire so they can spend eternity together. Adding some urgency to the situation is the fact that Edward Cullen, her vampire love, is reluctant to have sex outside the bonds of matrimony.
    Christine Seifert, a communications professor at Westminster College in Salt Lake City who has studied Twilight online message boards and fan fiction sites, says that the saga is strongly Mormon in tone and that a subset of Mormon culture prefers that girls marry young and start families. She says the abstinence message is so strong it could be labeled "abstinence porn," designed to convince teens that sexual self-denial is actually sexy. Will it work?
    The author of the Twilight books, Stephenie Meyer, is a devout Mormon who says about Bella on her website: "I never meant for her fictional choices to be a model for anyone else's real-life choices."
    Nevertheless, the three movies so far and the four books in print make some parents nervous about whether the saga is appropriate for younger teens, even aside from the vampires. Twilight, it should be noted, was No. 5 on the 2009 list of books challenged or banned from schools and libraries, according to the American Library Association.
    'Virtuous' messages
    Kristy Campbell of Marin County, Calif., a non-Mormon mother of five and a columnist for Mommytracked.com, says she won't let her 9-year-old read the books but she's OK with her 17-year-old doing so, as long as Mom and Dad help explain "the fiction in the fiction." She worries that Twilight over-romanticizes teen sex and marriage, creating unrealistic expectations.
    "I'd like to see Edward and Bella one year into their teen marriage living in their parents' basement with a screaming toddler, no college plans, working at a 7-Eleven and wondering where the fun went," she says
    Kathryn Darden, a Christian freelance writer on arts and entertainment for several online publications who has written about Twilight, says there are some "virtuous" messages in the saga, but "I've never recommended it for (unsupervised) teens — it needs to be read by parents and discussed first."
    Amy Best, an associate professor of sociology at Virginia's George Mason University who studies teens and popular culture, says adults do tend to get "a bit panicky" when teenagers invest too much in a particular character, and there's a long list of characters who have been "troublesome" on some level. But she says the "emulation model" is not followed by all teens, even the obsessed ones.
    "We should recognize that teens develop complicated relationships to media and for some it may inspire a particular trajectory for action, but for others it's also an opportunity to work through ideas," she says. "Listen to them and don't assume what messages teens are drawing from" Twilight or any other book or movie.
    Indeed, ask teens if they take Twilight seriously enough to imitate Bella and eyes roll. Hello, there are vampires involved; of course it's make-believe!
    "It's kind of a special situation — it's a fantasy novel," says Michelle Pan, patiently, calling from summer camp. She's 17, founder of a popular website, BellaAndEdward.com (about 300,000 hits a month) and the author of a new book of fan talk, Bella Should Have Dumped Edward: Controversial Views & Debates on the Twilight Series. "I don't think (fans) will be influenced; for most readers, there's a clear distinction that this is fantasy and separate from their real life."
    The fans who gab about Twilight on Pan's website and in her book are more interested in discussing such questions as, "Would the series be as intriguing if Bella picked Jacob (the werewolf) over Edward?" and "Which vampire special talent is most useful?" They also discuss the creepiness of "imprinting," which is what Meyer says happens when shape-shifters such as werewolves encounter the person they're destined to be with.
    The adult spokeswoman for Pan's publisher, Karma Bennett of Ulysses Press, isn't so sure she likes the idea of a man choosing his life partner with just a glance, and some of the fans in Pan's book agree. But others have no problem with it. One girl, identified as Dayi, 19, of Georgia, even says she wishes everyone could be imprinted because it would make finding a soul mate easier and might curb the wayward behavior of men.
    Melissa Click, a communications professor at the University of Missouri and co-author of a new book about the fans, Bitten by Twilight: Youth Culture, Media, & the Vampire Franchise, says the media have treated Twihard teens shabbily, making fun of them and wringing hands over the intensity of their love for Twilight. But she says the teens she has interviewed are savvy and not so easily manipulated.
    "They're smart, and to assume they can't decode messages is itself an anti-feminist message," Click says. Critics who complain that Twihard teens are "out of control, aren't they stupid, gosh, we need to protect them — well, they don't say that about Iron Man fans."
    The faithful are divided
    But even some of Meyer's fellow Mormons aren't thrilled about Twilight: Deseret Books, a Salt Lake-based Mormon church-affiliated chain of 38 bookstores throughout the West, removed the books from store shelves last year at the request of customers, although the books are still available by special order, says spokeswoman Gail Halladay.
    "Many of our customers were upset and felt it was not appropriate content for the targeted audience," she says. "We needed to accommodate our customers. It was a business decision."
    Meanwhile, conservative Christian organizations that sought to ban the Harry Potter books because they're about wizards and witches are divided about criticizing Twilight.
    Roberta Combs, president of the Christian Coalition of America, which called for a ban on the Potter series, says she's considering a similar campaign against Twilight because even though it's pro-abstinence, it's also pro-vampires.
    She says vampires are definitely not good role models, and she blames Hollywood.
    "We can let our voices be heard, and anytime you do that you have an effect one way or another," Combs says. "These Twilight books are very disturbing books for family values. Teen marriage is not the standard, but the part that is more troubling is the vampire. It's just not normal for young people to idolize a vampire."
    Says Gordon Robertson, CEO of the Christian Broadcasting Network, which condemned Harry Potter for fear that the books would inspire young people to try casting spells: "Rather than prohibit access, use it as a talking point" with your teens.
    Twilight has questionable stuff (such as Edward's stalkerish behavior toward Bella), Robertson says, but it's mostly harmless "romantic escapism" that teens are smart enough to put in context with the help of parents.
    Darden says one reason for the division is that witches are specifically condemned in the Bible, while vampires are not even mentioned. Still, "many Christian readers shy away from things that are demonic, and (they think) vampires are demon," she says.
    But Darden defends the suitability of at least the first Twilight book for older teens (with parental guidance) because its themes are "faith-based," and the characters talk a lot about their souls.
    "Edward refuses to turn Bella (into a vampire) because he's concerned about her salvation, he thinks being a vampire is equivalent to being damned," she says. "He puts her well-being above all else, and that's a strong positive message. Teen culture is too often getting the opposite message from Hollywood."
    Not everyone relates
    Not every young woman yearns for a vampire of her own.
    Jenn Petti, 26, who works at a hotel in Colorado Springs, has read all the books and saw the first movie. She thinks Bella is pretty lame.
    "How is her being a role model even up for debate?" Petti scoffs.
    Bella is "co-dependent," willing to abandon her friends to be with "an immortal sparkly male," Petty says. (Meyer's vampires have skin that sparkles like diamonds in the sunlight). "She has no sense of self and only sees her worth as Edward's girlfriend, which is why when he breaks up with her, she spends almost the entire second book moping."
    Petti says teen girls may aspire to the kind of relationship Bella has with Edward, but she's not convinced they'll run off and get married and start making babies too young.
    "Girls relate to the fantasy," she says. "It speaks to that part in most girls of wanting to be a princess, wanting something crazy and magical to happen.""

    It's so interesting...

    MY ECLIPSE REVIEW

    OMG, I just got back from seeing Eclipse!!!! :) SO happy right now!!!!! It's about time I saw it. Eclipse was released on Thursday, and I had to wait until Tuesday. Anyway, I finally saw it :) Now I can actually use the internet. However, there were these annoying girls sitting right behind us, and they wouldn’t shut up. Seriously, they were literally having conversations while everyone was trying to watch the film. Man, I almost got up and told them to shut up, or get out. How rude and disrespectful. But other than that, ECLIPSE WAS SO MUCH BETTER THAN TWILIGHT AND NEW MOON!!! OMG!!

    Firstly, the score was beautiful!! Howard Shore, you lived up to my expectations. Alexandre Desplat composed a gorgeous score for New Moon, and Howard Shore stood beside him and delivered a great score. I can’t say enough about it because I honestly loved it. I can't give an in-depth review because I have only heard it once, but I really did love it.

    Javier, the cinematographer, well done!!! Visually Eclipse was stunning. The gorgeous shots of the landscape were obvious of Javier's skill, as well as David's. I loved the flashback scenes. Wow, the scenery was incredible. Rosalie’s, Jasper’s and the Quileute legends scenes were really awesome. It was nice to see more of the Cullen’s, and understand why they are the way are. One of my favourite shots was when Jacob was carrying Bella up the mountain, and the camera zooms up to show how steep it is. LOVED IT!! Also, no disgusting colour tint over the lens. Yes!!!

    The make-up was significant improved from New Moon, except for Jane. I think that Bella was actually wearing eyeliner, and mascara. Yay!! Edward's lips didn’t look that bad....and I love the vampire’s skin. It looked hard as rock, which is how it's supposed to be. However, I didn’t like how they did Jane's eyes in Eclipse. I thought they were better in New Moon. But, other than that, it improved significantly.

    The costumes were so much better than New Moon. For one, Bella wasn't depressed and actually dressed herself well, which was awesome. But generally the clothes were so much better, particularly Alice. I LOVED her jacket when she was telling Charlie about Bella's sleepover with her. The flashback scenes were awesome costuming. I LOVED Jasper's Major's outfit (major swoon) and Rosalie's coat with all of her 40s clothing. Awesome.

    I really liked all of the stuff that was added into the film, like Riley's transformation, Victoria seducing and manipulating Riley, the Volturi being aware of the newborns, the Cullen’s chasing Victoria in the woods etc. It was really cool to get away from Bella, and to see more action, violence, and drama than Bella being torn between two guys. It just give Eclipse much more depth, and would make guys like it much more because it isn’t just a romance.

    The action sequences were friggin awesome!! Seriously, they were cool. I was impressed by Robert Pattinson job with fighting Bryce Dallas' Howard, because Rob isn’t co-ordinated, or athletic at all. So, it was nice to see him do something, and not have it look stupid or cheesy like Twilight. Also, the fighting sequences were really well shot, and I can imagine the effort and training that all of the cast put in. Nikki Reed said she wanted to die because it was so painful, and I can see how much it must have taken to get that, because it looks incredible.

    Now, onto the bad. The wigs'. Ewwww still. I mean Jackson Rathbone's wig?? Seriously, who picked that wig, because it makes Jackson look pretty bad. He kinda pulls it off, but it is just a bad wig. Sometimes, Kristens' wig looked good, and then sometimes it looked bad. I suppose it has to do with how her hair was. I remember she had a top-knot and it look awful, but when she had it down, it looked fine. Oh well, don't have to worry about that for Breaking Dawn, as Kristen's hair would have grown back.

    Also, the acting. Arghhh, Kristen still got on my nerves but she was better than she was in New Moon. Taylor's acting was good, it's just that his voice isn’t very deep and intimidating so it can made him humorous when he is trying to be angry because it’s ironic. With Robert, I think he did a better than he did in the entire series, but still it was pretty bad. However, I was extremely impressed with Jackson Rathbone. I think he was the stand out in the film, by far. Good job, Jackson.

    Taylor kept talking about how he thought Eclipse was funny, but I was expecting it to be funnier than it was. I mean, it was funny, but I thought there would be more humour than there actually was. Plus, there were a few other issues I had with it, like Jessica being valedictorian (umm no it’s supposed to be smart Eric, not stupid Jessica). I expected Charlie to be funnier than he was, because he was hilarious in Twilight and New Moon.

    Overall, Eclipse was pretty good, and I think it's the best so far. Now, I’m just dying to see what David Slade puts on the DVD. I was disappointed that he isn't going to be recording a commentary, but I hope that Kristen, Taylor, and Robert record one anyway. But I don't think that is going to happen. I know that David cut the scene with Angela and Bella addressing graduation cards, so I hope it makes it onto the DVD, along with some bloopers. I'm dying to see Eclipse again :) Thanks David. I think you did a great job. There weren't many cheesy lines at all!! YAY!!! :D

    Eclipse made $121M in first three days


    The Hollywood Insider is reporting that Eclipse has made just over $121 on it's third day!!! Wow, that's incredible. I know i said that i would stay off the internet untill i saw Eclipse, however i've only been going on site i know that won't post spoliers, and only facts about Eclipse. I am going officially tomorrow :P I'll post my review when i get back :D

    Eclipse is released tonight!!!!!

    Awwww, I'm so upset right now!! Millions of people in America are have just finished watching Eclipse, or are still watching it!! :( Australia doesnt have it released for another 7 hours!!!

    I'm literally refusing to read any reviews or even fan reviews, as i want to form my own opinion, and not be influenced by others.

    I'm going to TUESDAY!!! FKING TUESDAY!!! Cause me and all of my friends are in university, we are broke from rent, food, school, etc so we are going on cheap tuesday, well because it's cheap. That's almost a week after Eclipse is released. Good on them for buying the tickets and not telling me!!!

    This is BAD, because Eclipse comes out on Thursday, so EVERY hardcore fan, like myself would have seen it, but ME! Arghhh, oh well. I'm gonna have to stay off the internet for 7 days. So, i'm posting this then getting off for a week. OMG, kill me.

    I will probably end up considering ditching them, and seeing the movie without them knowing. Oh well, i planned on seeing it twice anyway.

    Peace out internet. See you on Tueday night!!!

    Eclipse pics from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Official Illustrated Movie Companion

    Wow, these are stills from Mark Cotta Vaz's movie companion. Wow, these are INCREDIBLE!!! SO excited!!!!
    Edwards room when he bought Bella the golden bed. His room looks exactly how i imaged it would look. I'm also impressed with the set, becasuse this is a rebuilt replica of the old house. I hope that Bella is pissed off with him buying the bed, just like she was in the book.
    This is obviously the scene where Bella tries to seduce Edward, while he proposes to her, and she finally accepts. I loved that chapter in the book, so i hope its just a good on screen.
    This is obviously one of the most anticipated scenes in the film; the tent scene. Taylor's favourite scene. You cant really see much, but it's almost how i conjured it. I'm really, really excited for this scene. :)
    Still the scene where Bella tries to seduce Edward. I'm sure all of the little girls are going to have screaming fits in the cinema. LOL
    I don't have a clue what this is. I don't think its a still from the film, but it just might be David Slade's brainstorming wall or something.
    I'm almost positive that this is the flashforward scene shown during Bella and Jacob's kiss if she chose him. I'm really excited to see how Bella's life would be if she chose Jake. Also, i wanna see Billy and Charlie when they are old. :) That's going to be so awesome. I think they are at Bella's place with those orange things off of the windows that some one took last year. Awww, they look so happy.
    This is obviously Bella, Alice, and Edward's graduation party. I love how Alice decorated it. It looks incredible. I'm glad that the Cullens house looks identical to the one used in Twilight. It was obvious the difference from Twilight to New Moon. However, Eclipse has incorporated both. I'm so excited for this scene. So much happens and it's so tense. Love it!!
    The bonfire :) I'm so excited for this scene. In the book i got kinda confused because of all the unusual and foreign names that Stephenie used in the legends. So, i'm sure it's going to be amazing in the film when i can identify characters by their face rather than names i'm not used it. It's going to be crazy. Plus, its strange to see all of the wolves in clothes lol.
    Aww, Jaspers flashback. This is going to be seriously cool. However, i imagined this scene to be set on a dusty road, not a lake. Oh well, it's still really cool. I really hope that Jackson Rathbone accentuates his southern accent, because its so sexy. It will just make me melt in the cinema. I can wait to see Jasper explain this to Bella because it will give his character more depth. Jasper hasnt been a huge part, however now he opens up this whole violent newborn vampire world. :) Seriously awesome.
    I think that this is right after Bella and Jacob's kiss.
    OMG, this is going to be the hottest kiss ever. I hope its really passionate because it's the way she cant kiss Edward. Like, really kiss. She can do that with Jacob, so it needs to be so much more than Edward's kisses. Except, i don't like that Bella is standing on a raised platform, making her way taller than Jake. Other than that, i'm excited to see this scene in action. :D
    Wow, Jasper on his horse. He looks like such a gentleman.
    This is one of the same pictures that has been around forever.
    Lucie, Nettie and Maria. They are exactly how i imagned them to be. They all look perfect. I can totally see how they made Jasper come over to help them.
    This is a picture of behind the scene filming the battle scene between Riley, Seth, Victoria, Edward and Bella. This better be a cool scene, because it's gotta live up to the Cullens and wolves vs. the newborns, which is going to be an awesome fight sequence.
    I think this is Edward burning Riley and Victoria. I think that he feels guilty for killing them, even though they were attacking them. I love that, because it shows that Carlisle compassion is rubbing off on everyone else in the Cullens family.
    I'm not sure when this is. You cant really see what they are wearing, or anything in the background to judge the scene.
    Awwww, Bella and Edward in her bedroom. This is where Bella asks Edward why he wont change her. I don't really know when this is placed in the film, as we have only seen short snippits in the trailers and tv spots.
    I didnt know that this was going to be in the film, but now i've got some pictures of the werewolves legends, i'm excited for it. :)
    That must be the third wife, and her dying husband.
    More stills from the woves legends :D
    Ohhh, this is Rosalies flashback. This must be where she is raped and beaten. She has got on a warm coat, and hat, as if she was walking home from Vera's. She doesnt look happy either. I'm so excited for this scene because it shows that Rosalie cares enough for Bella to warn her about the choice she is making and warning her that she wouldnt choose this life. It explains that Rosalie isnt just some bitch for no reason, but she has suffered serious tramua and his bitter because she is living a life she never wanted.  
    This set is awesome. It must have taken a lot of work to built that. I supposed its better because the weather conditions were crazy for Twilight, and sometimes for New Moon. So, having a set you have peace of mind that you can shoot regardless of the weather.
    Bella getting out of the tent :D
    This must be the scene that Taylor was talking about where Rob shoves him, and Taylor has to look him in the eye and tell him that he is hotter than he is. I'm sure that is going to get a few laughs in the audience. I'm so excited for the tent scene. This is one of my favourties in the entire saga, so it will be nice to see it on the screen.
    Aww, Jasper's flashback again :P
    Ohh, this is the scene right after Jacob kisses Bella, and Edward gets all up in his grill. Everyone has already seen this scene, because it was released already. I forgot where, but i'm excited for it. I love that Charlie is coming to break it up, just like he did in the book.
    Victoria and Riley. Wow, Riley looks like he is really into Victoria. Which i'm glad because he was being manipulated. However, i don't feel anymore sympathy for Riley after reading "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, and discovering he killed Diago, and lied to Bree about it. Stupid Riley.
    Awww, Rosalie and Royce. I'm really looking forward to this scene. I know that Nikki Reed is a good actor, so i'm waiting to be blown away by her portrayal of Rosalie as a human when she was happy and not bitchy and bitter all the time.
    This still is similar to one we have seen before. It's just the fight between Riley, Victoria, Seth, Edward and Bella.
    I love that they have included which wolves are which to pictures of the wolf pack :P Nice little reference to see who is who.

    4. Victoria
    5. Imprinting
    6. The Cullens Plan

    15. The Kiss
    16. The Battle/Victoria vs. Edward
    17. Jane
    18. As Easy As Breathing
    19. Wedding Plans

    I'm super excited, because from the looks of it, every part of Eclipse has been covered!!

    1. Riley - This obviously the opening sequence when Riley is human, and he is being chased and turned into a vampire by Victoria in the rain. This scene is going to be awesome because it automatically sets up a threat right from the very beginning! Me being the media and literature nerd i am, it's an excellent narrative device because an opening sequence sets up the expectations, themes, and ideas that are going to be explored through-out the film. It poses questions to the audiece that creates intrest by teasing the audiences curiosity about what is going to happen through-out the rest of the film. It's evidently going to be an action sequence, so the guys are going to be more interested from the beginning of the film. :)

    2. Compromise/Bella's Theme - I'm sure that this theme is going to be played through-out the film because it's Bella's Theme. I'm not sure but i think that it's going to be incorporated like Edward and Jacob's theme was in New Moon. It'll be interesting to see what Howard Shore does with it, and how he uses Bella's theme through-out the film to convey the emotions that she is feeling.

    3. Bella Truck/Florida - I'm not sure what the truck part is, but this song is going to be played when Bella goes to visit Renee is Florida. I'm not sure if Edward comes as well, but i hope he does because that's the way it was in the books. I'm excited to see more interaction between Bella and Renee, so that the people who havnt read the books can get a better grasp of their relationship.

    4. Victoria - I know that David Slade has added some scene in with Victoria, like Chris Weitz did in New Moon. Although, i'm sure that Victoria is going to have a much larger part in Eclipse. There has been a lot added in Victoria changing Riley, Victoria seducing Riley, the Newborns, Bree. All of those are obviously going to play a much larger part than they did in the books. I'm just glad that everyone gets to read "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner" before Eclipse comes out. So that we understand, and it's not too out of the blue for these to be added in.

    5. Imprinting - This is going to be played when Jacob tries to explain the Bella what imprinting is. I really hope that Melissa Rosenberg and David Slade didnt make it sound really perverted or creapy. If it's done wrong, i can see how it could be considered as child paedophilia. I really hope that it's explained well, and that it can be pulled off well. Also, i hope that Quil's relationship will Claire is there, so that you can visually see that Quil is in no way romantically attracted to her.

    6. The Cullens Plan - I'm not sure what this is refering to, but i think it's the plan for Bella to be changed after graduation by Carlisle. It that or when Cullen deciding to go to Seattle themselves to stop the newborns attracting attention, and then have the Voltrui come down. I can't be sure because i havnt see n the film yet, but i'm super excited to see more of the Cullens. We hardly saw them at all in Twilight and New Moon. I've been anticipating seeing more of them in Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. :)

    7. First Kiss- LOL this is going to be Jacob's first kiss!! This is going to be funny!!! Jacob kisses Bella, and then she gets so mad that she punches him in the face!! I really hope that Kristen and Taylor act really well in this scene because it's will make or break this scene. I'm excited for this. I was laughing out loud when i read Eclipse for the first time. I wonder what this song is going to sound like....hmmmm.

    8. Rosalie - I'm really excited for Rosalie's flashback scene. It gives the audience the opportunity to understand Rosalie better, and to know why she is the ways that she is. Plus, i think that Jack Huston  who plays Royce King the second, is really gorgeous!!! It's also good to see that Rosalie sincerely cares for Bella, and that she doesnt want her to give up a life that she could have, like Rosalie was made to.

    9. Decisions, Decisions... - I think this is going to be be when the Victoria knows that Alice only see vision when a decision has been made. I remember a part in the book where Alice cant see what they are doing because they havnt made a decision yet. I'm sure this scene is just going to be Alice, Bella, Edward and all of the other Cullens talking or something about the newborns in the living room of their house. 

    10. They're Coming Here - This is obviously refering to the Newborns coming to Forks. I think that this is going to be during the graduation party. That is when Alice has her vision and goes off to discuss it with the Cullens. Unless it has been changed in the film, i'm pretty sure that is when it's going to happen. I'm excited for this scene, because it's awesome to see Alice decorated everything, and all of the humans there having a party! Sweet!!

    11. Jacob Black - I'm not sure where this is going to be. I'm also not sure if it's Jacob's Theme that we got on the soundtrack, or if it's a different song all together. I'm sure it's got Jacob's theme incorporated within it somewhere, but it's difficult to tell because there isnt much to go from .I'm just purely speculating here. Although, the Jacob's Theme that we did hear already, i love it!! :)

    12. Jasper - I'm SO excited for Jasper's flashback!! I'm hoping that is seriously cool and violent! Having the war, and then the vampire wars of the south!! It's going to be seriously cool!1 I really hope that Jackson Rathbone accentuates his southern accent because Jasper's accent would've been really strong them. Wow, i'm so excited for this. I really hope that Jaspers wig grows on me, because i really don't like it at the moment. I'm curious to see how they are going to show Jaspers' battle scars, if they choose to show them at all.

    13. Wolf Scent - I think this song is going to be played when Jasper is teaching the Cullens and the Wolves how to fight off the nrwborn vampires. This is going to be such a cool scene. I remember the wolves wanting to smell all of the Cullens so they don't accidentally hurt one of them, thinking they are a newborn. I'm excited to see the connection between Bella and Jacob in his wolf form. Apparantly, Bella patts Jacob's fur and scrathes his ears and everything. Awww, so adorable.

    14. Mountain Peek - I think that this is going to be played when Jacob is carrying Bella up the mountain, and while they are hiding out. I'm SO excited for the tent scene. It is probably the most anticipated scene in the entire film. I don't think thats a generalisation. I'm sure everyone is excited because that was such a great scene in the books. I really hope the dialogue is great, as well as the acting and the music.

    15. This Kiss - i have high expectations for this kiss. It better be bloody passionate!! I want to see some serious, harcore, violent, passionate action here!!! I want this kiss to put the Twilight fans passion to shame!! I know that David Slade shot some flashforward scene with Bella imagining her life if she chose Jacob. That's going to be so cute seeing Billy, Charlie, Jacob, Bella and their children together (If David Slade had children in the scene). Awwww, super adorable!! I'm excited for this kiss scene, because it should display Jacob's desire for Bella. It should be super passionate because she loses herself in this kiss they way she cant with Edward.

    16. The Battle/ Victoria vs. Edward - THIS BETTER BE SOME SUPER COOL ACTION MUSIC!!! This is going to be an AMAZING scene!!! I'm excited to see some action, and not as much sappiness that was in Twilight. I know the entire cast trained like crazy for this one scene, so i have a feeling that it's going to be super hardcore and insense!

    17. Jane - The Volturi's visit!! I'm excited for this because Dakota Fanning is an incredible actress and she was one of the stand out performers in New Moon, even though she was only in it for about 5 minutes. I'm excited to see how the Voltrui act with all of the Cullens there, and when they are outside of their lair. I'm sure it's going to be fabulous.

    18. Easy As Breathing - OMG!!! I'm going to cry SO much during this scene!!! This is obviously when Bella goes to Jacob's and he is all broken, hurt and vulneralble lying in his bed. I'm pretty sure that is the scene, because a line from the books, is that Jacob tells Bella if she chose him, their relationship would be so perfect, and right, that they wouldnt even have to work at it. That it would be so effortless, like breathing. I'm paraphrasing here, but you get the idea. I'm going to ball my eyes out.

    19. Wedding Plans - I think the title says it all. Edward and Bella discussing their wedding plans. I'm assuming the date, and when Bella is going to be changed etc. It's going to be a really cute conclusion to Eclipse. I hope they added Alice in there talking about the wedding, and what Alice is usually like over planning any event. 

    I'm really excited for Howard Shores' Score, however i don't think i'm going to buy it before i see the film. If i play all of the tracks before, and listen to them, during the film, i'll be constantly picking out that track is there, and this track is there. I think it would be better to sit down and watching the film, and feel the emotions the songs are trying to convey without overthinking where every song starts, ends and is placed. You know? I know that may not make sense to anyone, but it does to me. Other than that. I'm excited for Eclipse. I just can't say it enough!! :)

    My Eclipse Soundtrack Review

    Summit was kind enough to let everyone listen to the Eclipse Soundtrack before it was released!! Awww, how sweet!! So, the entire album was uploaded to the official soundtrack site, and it's going to remain there for 24 hours!! :) That's awesome, so everyone can hear it before they buy it!! I'm SO happy with the soundtrack at the moment. I've already expressed my love for Muses' single, so i'll just give my mini review on the rest of the soundtrack. By the way, i typed this last night at 2-3am, so it may not be that well written.

    ECLIPSE SOUNDTRACK!!!


    Eclipse (All Yours) by Metric – I LOVE IT!!! I don’t usually like music like that, but really like this song. I think it fits perfectly the tone of Eclipse, and I can imagine this song in the film. They did a good job with continuity because the songs from New Moon and Eclipse all fit together. I SO LOVE THIS SONG!!! The vocals are beautiful and it makes me want to sing along!! :)

    Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever) by Muse – I already did I write up about how much I love this song!! I have a new found love for Muse now! I used to think they were just ok, and the only song I liked was “Super Massive Blackhole”. However, I’ve only recently started liking “Uprising”, “Resistance” and “Undisclosed Desires”. Now, after “Neutron Star Collision” was released, I bough Muses’ latest album “The Resistance.” I’m glad I did, because I like it.

    Ours by The Bravery – OMG, I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! I’ve never heard of these guys before, but I’m loving this song. Great melody, great lyrics, I love the chord progression and the vocals. It’s dark and solemn and at the same time it has a great beat that makes you want to bop along. LOVE <33 It’s very indie rock, and I LOVE it!!! Probably one of my favourites on the entire Eclipse Soundtrack.

    Heavy in Your Arms by Florence and the Machine – OK, I don’t like this song. I can see how it might fit a particular scene, but I wouldn’t listen to this on my Ipod or anything. It’s just not my taste in music. I’ve heard of them before, and their song “You’ve got the Love” is ok, and I don’t mind listening to it on the radio, but I didn’t buy it. I guess I just don’t like their music. I wasn’t too excited to hear that they were possibly on the soundtrack. Not crazy about this song.

    My Love by Sia – I have high expectations considering one of my favourite songs is by Sia. It’s called Breathe Me, so I’m hoping high for this. OK, WOW!!! I love it already and it’s only been 50 seconds in. Beautiful song. Lovely piano and vocals. I just love listening to solo acoustic piano, vocals, and strings. They sound gorgeous together. I really LOVE this song. I would listen to this in my car or doing homework or something. <33 Heart it, totally!! It's going to be one of my favourites, i can tell.

    Atlas by Fanfarlo – It’s ok, I don’t hate it and I don’t love it. I can see it being in Eclipse though. I’m sure it fits the movie perfectly; however it’s just meh for me at the moment. Maybe just because I just got my mind blown by Sia. However, I may change my mind when I see Eclipse and can place the song with a particular scene. It changed the may I saw the New Moon soundtrack. Half of those song i though where meh, but after seeing them in New Moon i really started to like them more.

    Chop and Change by The Black Keys – Ok, I’m liking this. It’s very downbeat, and funky. Very classic rhythm and blues. It could even pass as blues/jazz, although it doesn’t have any brass, or woodwind instruments. Although, I do like this. I don’t love it, but I do like it. I’m sure it will grow on me the more I listen to it. This is just my first time around and its 2am.

    Rolling In On A Burning Tire by The Dead Weather – I don’t know if it’s because I’m so tried, but does this sound a bit like Chop and Change by The Black Keys?? There is just a little riff of a melody that sounds like it. I listen again in the morning, to see, because it might just be because I’m tired. This track is ok, I don’t like it but I don’t hate it. I wouldn’t listen to it but I’m sure it’s fine in Eclipse.

    Let’s Get Lost by Beck and Bat for Lashes – I’m not sure what to think of this. It’s alright, but a few of the other songs are a lot better. Well, in my opinion. I can totally see this being played in the background when Bella is trying to seduce Edward in his bedroom, in the chapter “Compromise”. I don’t know why, but that’s what the beat and the lyrics sound like. Oh well, we’ll soon find out!! ;)

    Jonathan Low by Vampire Weekend – I’m not feeling this song. Don’t know why. I’ve only recently heard of Vampire Weekend, as one of my roommates loves them, and I don’t really like them. I’ve listened to their music, and it’s ok, but not good enough in my honest opinion for me to listen and buy their music. Its just a meh band for me. Nothing really stands out a great, or good. It's just meh.

    With You In My Head by UNKLE – I don’t like this song either. It sounds really weird, and science-fiction like. I’m just not crazy about the vocals, the melody, the key, or the tone. I know that it will probably fit a montage, or in the background of a cool chase or fight scene. It will fit well within a film perspective, but I just wouldn’t listen to this song because I like it.

    A Million Miles an Hour by Eastern Conference Champions - I like this. It’s really indie rock, which I love. It’s got that kind of beat that you can just slowly groove to. It’s pretty cool. Although, I cant understand any of the vocals. I like the deep base guitar rhythm and the slow building of the song towards the climax and the little cadence at the end. Pretty sweet.

    Life On Earth by Band Of Horses – OK, I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!! Beautiful guitar at the very beginning. Love the gorgeous soft vocals that chime in at the begging, and slowly change into the lyrics of the songs. Very haunting, and it kinda reminds me of Coldplay. They have that very slow, hauntingly beautiful sound with the guitar, the piano and the vocals. I really like this song! :)

    What Part Of Forever by Cee Lo Green – I LOVE THIS!!! It’s very up beat, boppy, and very feel good compared to all of the other songs. I like having this on the soundtrack because it is so needed. The Eclipse soundtrack would be too depressing without a few songs like this. It kinda reminds me of The Violet Hour by Sea Wolf on the New Moon Soundtrack. I like this song. 

    Jacob’s Theme by Howard Shore OMG!!! Jacob’s Theme is SO sad!!! Beautiful piano!! I LOVE IT!!! It’s going to be SO heartbreaking in Eclipse. Taylor Lautner’s acting made me so sad in New Moon. Especially with all of that emotion that Taylor Lautner convey’s through just his eyes. OMG, I’m seriously going to cry when Bella tells Jacob that she doesn’t want him, and ditches him when he is all broken and vulnerable in his bed. OMG!! Tear!! I LOVE Howard Shore, right now!! I have a feeling that he is going to live up to Alexandre Desplat. I'm totally getting the sheet music so i can play it on my piano!! <33

    The Lines by Battles – It’s ok. I don’t like it, but I don’t hate it. It’s just something that I wouldn’t listen to. It’s not as commercialised as Twilight soundtrack was. Not in a bad way, but I’m just saying that these songs would never get played on the air if they weren’t of the Eclipse Soundtrack. I’m sure it fits the film, but I just don’t think it’s the greatest to listen to by themselves.

    How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep by Bombay Bicycle Club – I like this song. I don’t love it, but I like it. It’s more upbeat, and it’s not in a minor key, so it’s not as depressing. I like the beat of the drums, although I’m not sure about the short melody of the electronic keyboard. That’s a little too year 7 music class when all of the kids were playing around with the pre-programmed beats, and melodies on the keyboards. Other than that, I like it.

    Atlas (The Time and Space Machine Rem) by Fanfarlo – This is a remix of the original Atlas song. I LOVE the beginning of this. It just reminds me of the music from Hawaii. So, whenever I hear it I just imagine sitting on a beach, with hula girls in grass skirts and coconuts are handing everyone tropical cocktails. I think I like this version better than the original. Why would they have two of the same on the soundtrack?? I don’t know. Maybe one is in the film, and the other is in the credits. I’m not sure, but I like this one better. Wow, it goes for a long time though. Its at 5 minutes, and it’s still going.

    What Part Of Forever by Cee Lo Green (Johan Hugo Remix) – There must be a few remixes on the end as bonus from buying it from ITunes or something. I liked this song before, so I’m sure I’m going to like this. I like that they have extras and stuff, but I’m curious to see if these are just bonuses or if they are actually going to be in the film or not. It’s confusing because some of the songs on the New Moon soundtrack weren’t in the actual film. Oh well, I’ll find out July 1st.

    Overall, this soundtrack is quite impressive. There are only a few songs i don't like, and a couple that were meh. My favourites are Eclipse (All Yours) by Metric, Ours by The Bravery, Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever) by Muse, My Love by Sia, Life on Earth by Band of Horses and Jacob's Theme by Howard Shore. I think that they did a good job selecting songs, and i'm sure that some of the others will grow on me  once i've seen Eclipse!! :) I CAN'T WAIT!! THERES ONLY APROX 28 DAYS UNTILL IT'S RELEASED!!! :D

    Kellan and Ashley's Breaking Dawn Agreements

    I totally take back what i said about not believing that Kellan and Ashley were holding back signing on for Breaking Dawn because they wanted bigger pay packets. This was actually true. I'm so disappointed in them because i thought that they were bigger people than that. I didnt think that a sum of money would be so important to them to try to manipulate the situation get more money out of Summit. I mean, they act so much less than Rob, Kristen and Taylor, so of course they are going to get a smaller amount of money. But i have no sympathy for these people who are cracking it because they only get 2 million dollars for a few months worth of acting. I'm sorry but i'm a university student who lives on a bare minimum, and is racking up thousands of dollars in debt for my schooling, and they are winging becuase they want a few extra million dollars. I'm sorry, but that is just horrible.

    Rob, Kristen and Taylor presenting Eclipse Clip at MTV Movie Awards!

    Kristen, Robert and Taylor are going to be presenting at the MTV Movie Awards on June 6. That's not even the most exciting thing. They are there to present an official never before seen clip from Eclipse!! I'm so excited!!! I wonder what clip it's going to be. I'm excited to see however i hope it's not too much of a spoiler, like when Jake kisses Bella (both times), or the tent scene, or even the compromise chapter. On another note, I really hope that the cast win all of the awards that they are nominated for, and i'm super psyched to see all of the interviews that the cast give on the red carpet. I hope that Rob, Kristen and Taylor walk the red carpet, and that the other cast show up too. I love it when Peter, Michael, Kellan, Ashley, Christian, Nikki, Jackson, Alex, Chaske, Dakota, Charlie, and all of the other cast show up too. They give good interviews, and it's nice to see the cast as an entireity. :) Super excited!! Hope they win!!!
