Next week, the film adaptation of one of the world’s most beloved stories comes to an end. November 16th, the tale that captured the hearts (kidnapped the minds?) of a generation (or just girls aged 12-18…and 45-50) comes to it’s stunning conclusion. What I’m trying to say is that the grand finale of the TWILIGHT SAGA is just around the corner!
Some of you might be wondering why a girl of sound mind in her mid-twenties, like myself, would be excited about a marshmallowy pop-culture phenomenon such as Twilight. First of all, pop culture is fascinating. Second of all, I may have been seduced by the first three books in the series. It’s ok if you judge me. I would too. I woke up to the ridiculousness of it all one day, (when Bella got preg and I experienced the first screenplay) but by then I was already along for the ride. I have seen every Twilight movie within two weeks of it’s release and I will do so again next weekend. It’s practically tradition. My relationship with the movies may be tinged (soaked) with irony at this point but, honestly, I can’t say I haven’t been entertained.
Some of my favorite bits were:
-Edward dry-heaving the first time he catches Bella’s scent
-“Hang on spider monkey”
-Bella’s strobe-quick lash-batting
-Victoria’s crackled stoney head laying on the ground
-“I AM THE SON OF EPHRAIM BLACK”
-Bella’s back snapping in half in the most heeeelarious way when she goes into labor
But this gem from the Breaking Dawn Part II trailer might take the cake:
No joke, this series has been the source of some major lolz in my life. I’m almost sad to see it go.
Can’t stomach Twilight? Have you heard of Rifftrax? They’re made by the minds behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 and they make the movies infinitely more watchable.
