Cheesy.I will admit, they cast Charlie perfectly. And Carlisle and Esme and Alice and Emmett and even Jessica. But everyone else? Kinda suffered. Jasper looked like a deer in the headlights the entire movie and Edward. . . oh Edward. I wonder if Stephanie cringed as she watched him? I did. Oh, and I liked Billy and Jacob too. But seriously folks? Did you feel like the whole movie was just totally disjointed? (Kind of like this post?) It was like they knew everyone had read the book already, so they could make it as choppy as possible and no one would care because their beloved Edward was on the screen. But really, Rob isn't so much a favorite of mine. When I thought of Edward, I thought of a perfectly sculpted body (hello, that's how he was described!) with an overwhelmingly beautiful face. Rob's face looked pained almost the entire movie. I never felt the strong connection that was supposed to be between him and Bella. It wasn't there for me at all. Oh, and Bella-- her voice was just a little too deep, her mannerisms were just weird and not natural and I just felt like they totally killed the book. It made me sad. Really Sad!
One more thing that totally bugged me? The Cullen's house! WAYYY too modern. I dunno, but the "big white house" that Stephanie always described just made me think of like an old victorian home on the outside, totally classic with beautiful woodwork inside. I mean, obviously they had modern things in there too, right? But totally modern with all the angles just wasn't working for me. Anyway, sorry for those of you who actually could stomach the movie, I just wasnt a fan. I don't think I will be going to see anymore of those films in the future. I much prefer the little movie I have in my head with my Edward and my Bella and my Jacob and my Reneesme, etc. (Disclaimer: I didn't hate it as much the second time I watched it. It was actually kind of enjoyable the second go-round)
So anyway, the title of my post- Are there any Jacob fans out there? Or should I just say, are there any Taylor Lautner fans out there? He's a cute kid. Love the smile. Well, I found him. He's actually attending BYU-Idaho under the fake name of "Shane Welch". :) Ok, that's a total lie. But, our good friend Shane really does look like he could be Taylor Lautner's Twin. Need some proof? Here it is!
Our Beloved Taylor!
Our Beloved Shaner!
I told you! They could be twins! Or at least brothers. And all you young single ladies-- he's single and available. :)
