The Twilight Impulse

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


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!!

Robert's popularity overrated!!

Obviously everyone is aware of how famous Robert Pattinson is. If you go to the supermarket, every single magazine has something about Robert on the cover! Seriously, it's true; check it out. I mean, it's getting to the point where it's ridiculous. Robert doesn't have much of a life. He probably spends the majority of his time inside a hotel, or his home because he is afraid of being followed by paparazzi, or being mauled by psychotic fans.

Rob is overshadowing the rest of the cast,too. I mean, there are other actor's in the saga, besides Rob. I mean, great actors, like Peter Facinelli, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Anna Kendrick, Michael Welch, Gil Birminghan, Billy Burke and Alex Meraz. They are amazing accomplished actors, but do you hear anything from them? Not that much, unless you go to a Twilight convention. Even when you do, they are asked about Robert. I mean, he isn't the only actor worth talking about in the saga. That's because Rob's fandom is so big. Most fans would rather see Robert and Kristen together, than the other actors, which i think is sad because they are seriously talented. I'm not saying Rob isn't, but i just think that his popularity is overrated.

Don't get me wrong, i love Rob. His hair, his eyes, his British accent, and when the plays the piano my heart melts. However, i do think it would be nice to give some of that recognition to some of the other cast members. They may only have small roles, but they stood out and shined in the film. Like Anna Kendrick. She was outstanding. She was such a perfect Jessica, played her spot on. She understood Jessica, and she is just...amazing. Definitely look for her in the future. Or Gil Birmingham, he has so much personality. Also Billy Burke; every scene he was in, he stole it. I mean, he was hilarious, when Bella was going to introduce Edward, and Charlie flips his gun up. One of the most hilarious things in the film.

Despite the other cast being totally underrated, Robert's personality is even influencing Edward. I mean, in New Moon, Summit had to shove as much Edward in the film as possible, just so that the fans would sit though it because Edward isn't there. Robert Pattinson's presence in the film has now become more important than being faithful to the book. In New Moon, Edward isn't' there. If everyone is a so-called "fans" of the saga, doesn't everyone want them presented correctly? Or is it vain enough to shove Robert in there, when it isn't necessarily true to the book, just because they like him more. Robert Pattinson has become more important that the story. Why? The books were initially the excitement for the films. Now, everyone is telling the storyline to go get stuff, because they would rather watch Robert Pattinson, than a faithful adaptation of the book.

Also, Robert Pattinson has changed how everyone views Edward. If you think about it, Robert isn't the best choice for Edward. I mean, he looks too old, is really skinny and scrawny,and has a British accent which he tries to hide badly. He physically doesn't fit Edward. However, he has changed Edward. I mean, Edward was supposed to dress really clean, crisp and proper. However, pictures from the Eclipse set had Edward costumed in slacks and plaid shirt!! What?? No, Edward wouldn't' wear plaid. He dressed like he was wearing designer clothes. Robert's style has influenced Edward, because that costume is something Rob would wear down the street. I don't like it, because it destroys what Edward was supposed to be like, and puts in place a more Rob centric character. It's untrue to the books.

I mean, it's not like Robert isn't going to be in another film again, so why is everyone so concerned with shoving him in as much of New Moon as possible. I get that he is gorgeous, but come on. As fans, should our first priority be sticking close to be book. Everyone else throw a fit when the Volvo's silver anymore, however nothing has been said about the evolution of Edward slowly being transformed more into a Robert character, the way his hair and clothing is. This is stupid, Rob isn't the only character, so everyone should stop paying attention to him, and try to acknowledge the others actors too. Like, when Rob went to Japan, Chris Weitz was there with him, but nobody noticed him!! What?? He is the f-king director!!! Leave Robert alone, he likes being left alone. Do him a favour, and play attention to the other collection of amazing actors in the cast!! They deserve it.
