Twilight III: Eclipse Recap: Part II

Aaaaaand the Things and I are back with part two of the Total Eclipse of the Stupid.  Enjoy while we go try to scrub out our brains.  Click here for part one.

The Great Volturi . . . are bored.

The Great Volturi . . . are bored.

More new vamp dude.  Something’s coming.  Let’s get to ittttt!  Volturi (head honcho vamps in black cloaks) are standing by

Girl vamp: People will think we’re ineffective.

Me: You arrrrrrrre.

 ****

How she got a diploma when she never went to class is a mystery . . .

How she got a diploma when she never went to class is a mystery . . .

Graduation: We see Bella’s “friend” who actually has sense and looks forward to something besides Edwarrrrd OMGGGGG.  What a jerk.

T1: Good thing we didn’t have to see Bella’s speech

Me: She didn’t have one. She majored in Edward.

 ****

Whoa, that was a beaut!

Whoa, that was a beaut!

Graduation party:

Bella is most boring party guest ever.  Jacob comes by to say “Sorry for assaulting you, here’s a gift”.  Alice has another vision that the vampire army is coming (they are all sniffin’ Bella’s PJs).  In four more days.  Kill me now.

 ****

We have ANOTHER vampire council.  Forget action, how about more talking!

They are “playing with the blind spots in Alice’s vision.”  Yeah blind spots big enough to dump a truck through.  Both Edward and Jacob are willing to sacrifice everyone else in their groups all for Bella.  Oy.

 ****

eclipse cuddly puppy boyfriend

What’s neato is that he’s cute and fluffy and I can ride him to the park! Perfect boyfriend!

So meeting with vamps and wolves. Sigh. Eddie sees Bella’s gift from Jacob.

T1: Just shut up about it already

Mercifully he does.  So the new vamps are more powerful because their human blood lingers in their tissues.  Wait, what?  Vampires are stronger than humans and oh, just, nevermind.  Vampires practice fight.

T2: Vampire / Wolf montage!!

Bella pets Jacob.

T1: I want a cute, cuddly boyfriend!

 ****

Jasper tells his backstory as a Confederate soldier.  Yup, now wondering why Steph didn’t write the dang books about the other vampires.  That would be bearable.

Even Jasper is cooler than Bella and Edward.

Even Jasper is cooler than Bella and Edward.

 ****

Oh, crap, we’re back with Bella lying around with Edward.  It would really suck not to ever sleep, especially around her.  They mouth breathe and stammer and stare and Bella says “Maybe Alice can’t see it cause Victoria is hiding behind someone else making the decision.”  As in, one more plot hole for Alice’s visions, dude.

T1: Hey, Bella is actually, like, processing things now.

 ****

Short scene with new vamp dude (no need to name him) and Victoria.  Why can’t we have more Victoria, movie?

 ****

Edward is leaving to go – sit around and think about Victoria or whatever.

Bella: You take all the risks

Edward: If it’s Victoria involved (duh), I need to get you as far away as possible.

Me: Like, except when you left her totally at her mercy in the last movie?

Bella: It’s dangerous for us to be apart

T1: That’s true, she tried to kill herself last time.

Edward: I can’t make you choose between me and your family

T1: What?  Bella did it no probs.

 ****

Bella can't walk and chew gum, so Jacob carries her.

Bella can’t walk and chew gum, so Jacob carries her.

Jacob shows up.  Bella says stuff.  Jacob poses.

T1: Whatever. I’m hot.

Edward and Jasper make stinky jokes about dogboy.  They decide Jacob will carry Bella around cause Jacob stinks.  Or something.

T1: Rock a bye Bel-la

Me: Why can’t Bella just walk close to him?  Why carry her?

T1: She could just rub his armpit sweat all over herself

More yammering about how Jacob thinks Bella really loves him and she says no and they walk and yammer and helpppp.

 ****

Sleepovers are totally normal for 18 year olds!

Sleepovers are totally normal for 18 year olds!  The perfect alibi!

Bella comes back . . . wait, why?  She’s at her dad’s house.  He is having fun with Alice, who is clearly a better daughter than Bella.

Alice yammers something about their plan, still not making sense. Camping, sleepovers, hunting, wait, what?

 ****

Thumbs up for virginity!

Thumbs up for virginity!

Bella talks with Dad.  Hey Dad, how come you didn’t remarry?  Hey Dad, here’s some more salt for your wound.  Dad says she should wait much much later to marry.  Yes.  Please.  Dad tries to bring up “intimacy” and Bella’s all “ewww gross.”

Bella: Dad – I’m a virgin!

Dad freaks out a little.

T1: Finally she acts like a real teenager.  I think she smiled.

 ****

Now for something totally different . . . smooching and staring.

Now for something totally different . . . smooching and staring.

Bella goes to Edward’s. Arghhh, when are they going to have something happen?  Anything?

Edward: Why are you outside?

Bella looks like she’s doing the potty dance.

T1: I have to go potty.

They go in a room with a bed

Bella: There’s a bed. (genius!)

T1: Awk-ward

More mumbling and staring and huffing and puffing and Bella goes smoochyface.

Bella: I want youuuu.  I wanna have sex as a human.

T1: Fast forward, fast forward!

They make out – in fast forward.  Then Eddie stops cause he wants to protect her soul.  No sexy times before marriage!

Me: Yeah, protect her soul until he uh, turns her into a vampire.  Right.

T1: Whaaat?  Gross, Bella’s the one who wants this?

Me: This is NOT the way it normally goes.  It’s usually the guy.

We fast forward past the rest of the angsty muttering, then have to go back cause we  missed the proposal.  Eddie is talking about asking her dad’s permission (say whaat?) and getting down on one knee.

Yeah I'll marry you, whatever.

Yeah I’ll marry you, whatever.

T1: He looks like he’s about to puke.

He gives Bella his mom’s ring he somehow still had.  He asks if she’ll do him the “extraordinary honor” of marrying him – while looking like he might vomit any second.

Bella: Yeah, okay.

Fangirls everywhere squeal with delight!

 ****

Let's go find another movie . . .

Let’s go find another movie . . .

Back to nameless guy and Victoria.

NG: Hey, we’ve been tearing the place up and the Cullens haven’t done squat.

Me: Exactly the problem I’m having.  NOTHING IS HAPPENING.

Smoochy times with NG and Victoria. Sadly, they had to add this to the movie (and all other Victoria and newborn vampire scenes) because even that much action was not happening in the book.

 ****

I see London, I see France!

I see London, I see France!

Bella walks around pricking her finger on bushes in the woods.  I wish she’d pass out like Sleeping Beauty.

Edward: Your blood doesn’t bother me anymore cause I totes thought you were dead.

Say whaat?  He’s still a freaking vampire . . . oh wait.

T1: Can I just have a tiny lick?  Pleaseee

Me: Finger lickin’ good

Bella: We should wait to tell Jacob we’re engaged

T1: Yeah cause he’ll eat you otherwise.

Jacob comes up.

T1: Bella still wants to cheat on Edward with Jacob

Me: Who wouldn’t?

Jacob runs off carrying Bella again.  Still not sure why.  He clearly shows his underpants.   Eddie watches and. . . sparkles!

 ****

Kill them, kill them, kill them . . .

Kill them, kill them, kill them . . .

Vampire army walking through the water.  Come onnnnn, there’s so many of youuu.  Kill them, kill them!

 ****

Like, no one cared about my abs . . .

Like, no one cared about my abs . . .

Jacob brings Bella to campsite with Edward.  Pouts because no one talked about his abs.

Sudden monster snow storm comes out of nowhere!  Plot convenience playhouse presents!  Bella is freezing cold.  Her buck teeth are chattering.  Edward is all what do I do?  Well, your ice cubeness isn’t gonna help her.

T1: Jacob!

Me: Bin-go.

Jacob comes in and Edward says like no way and Jacob says “I’m hotter than you.”

Bwahahahaha.

T1: Snuggle times!

****

What's cool is I'm a werewolf AND a space heater.

What’s cool is I’m a werewolf AND a space heater.

Jacob is totally a portable heater.  Eddie is not happy.  Jacob and Edward have another peeing contest over Bella.

Jacob: When you thought she was dead, how did you cope?

Me: Tried to kill myself, yups.  Kids, remember, if your true love leaves, kill yourself.

T1: Mommy, tilt your head and look at the screen.  It’s way cooler.

Me: They look black and glowy.  Hey, yeah it does look cooler.

T1: We are way bored, Mommy.

 ****

Oh oh, busted by Eddiekins, Bella!

Oh oh, busted by Eddiekins, Bella!  There’s just something hot about jaundice.

Jacob overhears Eddie talkin’ marriage.  Uh oh, wolf ears.

Bella runs after Jacob.  Actually shouts.  Something besides a mumble?

Bella: No, Jake, stay!

T1 and T2: Stay, stay boy

Me: Now roll over.  Good boy!

Jacob’s all ready to kill himself until Bella says the right thing – yeah, um, not manipulative at all, are we?

Bella: Kiss me

They make out.

T2: You taste like kibbles and bits!

Jacob: I gotta go

T1: Gotta go peeee.  My leg is liftingggg!

She turns around.  Eddie is standing there.  Oooooh snap!

T2: Burrrrn, Burrrn!

Eddie: You love him

Bella: I love you more

Me: Barrrrffffff

 ****

Whoa . . . Alice, watch the hands.

Whoa . . . obvious Alice stunt double, watch the hands.

Cullens and more realistic vampires run at each other – yayyy something happening!  Pause it and ohhhh, ewww.

T1: It’s vampire football now!

 ****

Victoria ohhhh freak out!

Victoria ohhhh freak out!

Meanwhile, takes two seconds for Vicki to figure out where Bella is after all this running around aimlessly.  She and no name go up against Eddikins.  She sends no name first.  I’m thinking, yay, fight, but instead we get Edward talking to no name:

Eddie: She doesn’t love you.

Vicki: Yes I doooo.

Eddie: No, she totes doesn’t, I like read minds.

Vicki: Nooo don’t believe him.  I lurrrve you for realz.

Me: Arghhhhhhh.

Finally Jacob comes and gets a new chew toy.  Yay!

 ****

Note Victoria's eyes are open and she's facing that way.

Note Victoria’s eyes are open.

Now Victoria's eyes are open and she's facing another way . . . way to edit, movie!

Now Victoria’s eyes are closed  . . . way to edit, movie!

Edward taunts Vicki and she goes freaky and they fight for two seconds.  We root for Vicki.  Edward chops down tree with head and Vicki falls with it.

All: Tim-berrrr!

Bella gets the brilliant idea to cut her arm for distraction.  I knew she shouldn’t have heard the story about the third wife!  Yay, Bella can be a distraction!  She’s a HERO!  Although, come to think of it, couldn’t the third wife have just cut her arm instead of killing herself?  Nevermind.

Edward breaks Victoria.  We all cry.  Editing is so bad they have Victoria with her eyes open in one frame, then another frame her eyes are closed.  Porcelain corpses close their eyes?

T2: Eddie’s gonna mount her head on his wall

Edward tears a strip of Bella’s shirt off for a bandage.  Cut to Jake.  He’s like man, you’re supposed to take your whole shirt off, dude!

Eddie throws lighter on Victoria

T2: Hunka Hunka Burnin’ Vic!

 ****

Stephenie Meyers kills small children.  Thank you, Stephenie.

Stephenie Meyers kills small children. Thank you, Stephenie.

Alice has vision of Volturi floatin’ around, pretendin’ to be awesome. Vampire attacks Jacob.  Jacob’s body goes snap, crackle, pop.  Wolves take him away.  Volturi show up.

T1: Just kill Bella already

Volturi chick sees the little girl vampire that just turned herself in.  She beats her up with Jedi, er, vampire mind tricks.  Then has her friend kill her.  Oh, yay, child killing.  Thank you, Stephenie Meyer.

 ****

It's like I'm dying, but I'm not . . .

It’s like I’m dying, but I’m not . . .

Immediately cut scene to wolves hanging out by truck.

T1: Now to the tailgate partyyyy!

Doc vampire is fixing him (eeearghhhhhhh!).  Bella goes to Jacob

T1: I wish .. . I could show you my abs.

Me: They are all brokey.

Jacob is sweating all over.

Jacob: Bella . . .

T1; I need a towel . . .

T1: I just figured it out – it’s Old Yeller!  Jake’s a dog and sacrificed for her!

Me: Now let’s shoot him.

Jacob and Bella blah blah feelings blah blah.

T1: What is all this?  He’s not dying.

Me: His heart is . . . breaaaaaking

T1: Oh barf.

 ****

Noooo not againnnnn!

Noooo not againnnnn!

Annnnd we’re back in the meadow w/ Edward and Bella.  No! No, they’re starting it all over again noooooo!

Bella: We’ll have the wedding in August – that’s a month before my birthday so I won’t be any older than you.

Cause THAT’S how you choose when to make a lifetime commitment.  Based on not being older than eighteen.

Edward: Who knows who Alice will invite to the wedding if she plans it?

T1: It’s alright. Bella has no friends.

Edward: You’re trying to make everyone happy.

T1: No, she’s not.

Me: Not even close.

Bella: I’ve had to face death, and loss, and pain.

What?  When?

Bella: I’ve always been out of step.

Soooo that means you’re meant to be a vampire, all awkward teens.  Remember that.

More mushy mumbles.  End.  Ennnnnnnnnnnd!

Bella: We have to tell Charlie (That’s her dad.  She can’t say dad cause she’s a jerk)  Good thing you’re bullet proof.

Me: Darn it all.

Eddie puts ring on Bella’s finger.  It ends.  Yes!  HOooooooray!

Twilight III: Eclipse Recap: Part One

Hey, all, I’m back with my two fellow sufferers reviewers, my daughters, Thing One and Thing Two.  Finally.  Last time we reviewed the second installment of Twilight gaggeria, New Moon, and before that the suckage that started it all, Twilight.  That was a while ago.  Like, um, over a year. It takes that long to recover from this stupidity.   But – here we go again on our own . . .

Menu selection screen –

Cardboard figures - just like in the movie!

Cardboard figures – just like in the movie!

Camera zooms around everywhere wildly.  Characters from the movie pop up.  All: Arghhhhhhhhh!

T1: They’re like cardboard pop ups!

T2: But scarier!

Me: Movie hasn’t even started yet and we’re scared!

We freeze for a screen shot of Bella.

T1: Draw a mustache on her!

T2: Mommy I dare you!

****

Owwwwwww!

Owwwwwww!

Movie opens in rain.  Yay.  Man is walking through the rain, at night, alone.

T2: They’re in Gotham City!

T1: Just like in the first Twilight movie, you know something’s gonna die in the first few seconds.

Me: If only it could be Bella.  No, it’s this schmuck.  Let’s watch, shall we?

Yup, something shoots out of nowhere at him.  T2 starts rooting for it.  Man tries to run for it.

T1: Try like left or right.

Whatever bites him.  He falls to the ground, writhes around, screams like a little girl.

T2: Oh the painnnn, the painnnn!

T1: He must have been a real wimp in high school.

Me: Sounds like Bella’s nightmare

T2: Alien’s gonna pop out of his chest!

T1: Like this movie isn’t gross enough already?

****

Edward checks Bella for ticks.

Edward checks Bella for ticks.

Zoom in on more trees.  Bella boring voiceover.

T2: Blah blahhh

T1: Shush, I’m trying to hear the stupid things she says.

Me: She’s ruining Robert Frost’s Fire and Ice poem.  Bad Bella!

T1: Some say it will end in ice, or sparkly vampires . . .

They are in a meadow again.  Ooooh.  Like a Summer’s Eve commercial.  Eddie is messing with her hair like he’s checking Bella for ticks or dandruff.

Me: Ooh I see his sparkles on his cheek!  Or blush?

T1: It’s sweat.

Me: Sparkly sweat?

T2: I’m allergic to sparkles

Bella: Turn me

Edward: If you marry me.  It’s called compromise

Me: No it’s called bribery.

Bella is sitting on him, making out.

T1: Ugh, can’t breathe Bella . . .

Edward: You’re worried about what people will think . . .

T1: At this point, why?

Mumble, mumble, mumble

T2: Eddie, stop talkin’ Latin

Me: Maybe if she’d quit speaking into her hand.  Microphones, people, something!

****

Yay, happy family.

Yay, happy family.

Bella whines at Dad who for some reason still hates Edward – like HE SHOULD.  Remember how you were screamin’ at night, Bella?  Remember the moping?  Well DO YOU?  Clearly poor dad is the best character.

Dad: You know why you’re being punished

Bella: Yeah I put you through hell

T1: over and over and . .

Bella: Edward is in my life

Dad drinks.  I’d drink too if I were him.

Dad: You have freedom if you use it to see others. Like Jacob.

T1: Yeah, better choice there.  What about the girls who said they were her friends?

****

Wait a sec, my boyfriend is a jerk . . .

Wait a sec, my boyfriend is a jerk . . .

Bella goes to her truck.  Won’t start.  Wonder why.  Edward shows up.  All scream.

Bella: Did you do this to my truck?

T2: Yeah he’s a psycho freak!

T1: Does he have no conscience?  Why did he take her battery?

T2: To put it in the microwave?

Edward: The wolves have no control.

Me: Eddikins, ya took her battery.  You don’t either.

Edward: Well I’m sorry.

T1: Worst apology ever

****

No wonder Bella's so popular!  She's so happy!

No wonder Bella’s so popular! She’s so happy!

Bella conversation at lunch table.  Humans are blabbing.  Bella stares.  Then Alice and Jasper sit down.

Me: The weirdos are here!

Alice: Let’s have a party!  It will be fun!

Bella: Yeah, like last time.

Sad Trombone: Wah wah wahhhhhhh.

Alice starts having a vision, or maybe constipation. Hard to tell.

****

Bella Derp Face

Bella Derp Face

Police station.  People are getting killed.

Edward: We’ve been tracking it for a while.

Me: Yeah, no need to tell Bella about this.  Just cause they wanna kill, you know, her.

Bella’s dad comes out.

Edward: Oh yeah, reminding you of the airline ticket I got for your birthday

T1: Really, Edward?

Eddie has gotten her a ticket to Florida to see Mom.  Wait, Florida . . . hot sun . . . vampire . . . sparkletownnnnn.  Yes, go, go, go!

There are two tickets of course.

Girls: Two tickets to paradise!

****

Creeeeeeper!

Creeeeeeper!

Bella in Florida.  More mumbling voice over.  What is she saying?

Mom: The way he looks at you.  Like he’s willing to leap and take a bullet for ya.

(Edward staring creepily at them through the window)

T2: Please tell me it’s a silver bullet

More mumbles.  Strip shirts?  Three headed lobster?  Are we in Hogwarts?

****

I belieeeeve I can flyyyyy!

I belieeeeve I can flyyyyy!

Next we have the whole creepy vampire crew, standing around in the forest.  There is a blue filter in the lens.

T2: Oh, no, more vampire baseball!

T1: It’s Picasso’s blue period!

T2: More staring.  I’m gonna stare the crap outta ya!

Now suddenly they’re running.  After . . .something.

T1: It’s the vampire Olympics!

They’re running after Victoria.  Oh, yeah, the only likable character.

Giant wolves come after her.

Me: Puppies!

They’re flying and hopping all over the place, ricocheting against trees like pinballs.

T2: Batman!  No Spiderman!

Me: Not anywhere as cool.

Victoria leaps over a cavern.  I believvvve I can flyyyyy!

****

I'm soooo awesommmmme!

I’m soooo awesommmmme!

Oh, now we’re back at school.  Nooooo.  Edward and Bella mumble talk for awhile.

Ed: Mumblemumblemumble

Bella: Mumblemumble mumble?

Ed: Mumble Mumblejumbo.

They get out of the car.  And ka-BAM, music gets louder and JACOB is here in all his abby glory!

T2: Everything is awesommmmme!

Jacob points out that Bella should know wtf is going on.  So should the audience.  At least you can understand Jacob.

Edward: I was trying to protect you

Bella: By lying to me?

Me: Bin-go!

Bella hops on Jacob’s bike.  Eat DIRT vampire!

****

Sorry, Stephenie made me a jerk in this one . . .

Sorry, Stephenie made me a jerk in this one . . .

Jacob’s place.  Jacob walks over a log.

T2: Hey ya like my log?  I chew on it.

The shirtless crew arrive!  None of the werewolves wear shirts.  It’s a rule.

T1: They got kicked out of school.  Couldn’t conform to dress codes.

There’s a girl werewolf now, but yuck, cause she whines about her broken heart.  And probably her period too!  Apparently they can read minds.  So she can hear their thoughts too.  And they’re teenage boys.  Guess what they’re thinking?  I’d be pissed too.

Jacob explains “imprinting”.  Basically, no free will guys.  You’re just in loves and that’s that!

Jacob: They aren’t even alive

T1: Well, you’re a dogman

Me: Kibbles and bits, kibbles and bits.

T2: About to go woof woof now.

Jacob: I’d rather you be dead than one of them!

Bella: I can’t believe you said that.

T1: Sorry, Stephenie Meyer made me a jerk in this book.

****

She didn't use Downy . . .

She didn’t use Downy . . .

Creeper guy in Bella’s room.  Figure it’s Edward, but no, another vampire – dude bitten in the beginning.  Grabs her pajamas and sniffs.  And keeps it!

T1: Ewwww.

T2: Did you see the look on his face?

Guy wanders around house.

T1: Dad needs a better security system

Me: He’s not a very good cop . . .

Dude leans over Dad sleeping on couch

T1: Eww don’t kiss him!

****

Next day Eddie comes in w/ black pupils.

Bella: I know I smell like dog.

Us: Snorrrt

Edward figures out someone has been in Bella’s room.  Genius!

****

Forget action, let's sit around some more!

Forget action, let’s sit around some more!

Vampire group meeting!  Woot!  Lots of mumbling.  Who could be after Bella?  Gee?

Bella: Victoria?

Alice: Noo I’d have seen it.  (Why didn’t she see all the other stuff?)

Rosalie acts like a jerk to Bella.  I still like Rosalie best.  Bella says dogboy can protect her while they run around aimlessly.

Wolves decide to take over so vamps can hunt.

T1: So now the wolves wanna protect Bella too? Way to get their priorities straight.

****

Yo, check out my abs.

Yo, check out my abs.

They drive up and there’s Jake doing his model pose.

Edward: Doesn’t he own a shirt?

T1: They save money that way.

Edward sticks his tongue in Bella’s mouth. Subtle!

Jacob hugs her tightly.

Me: Just pee on her already.

 ****

Way to ruin the Native Americans, Stephenie!

Way to ruin the Native Americans, Stephenie!

Jacob takes her to a tribal meeting.

Bella: Aren’t their stories secret?

Me: Not after Stephenie got hold of them.

Jacob wrestles with another guy.

T1: Finally boys doing boy stuff!

Elder dude: One day our warriors came across a creature

They show the femmiest pirate vampire dude EVER.  We laugh.  Indians show up wearing potato sacks. Totally freak out.  Indian Hulk Smash! We laugh again.

He's a vampire pirate. And fabulouuuuuussss!

He’s a vampire pirate. And fabulouuuuuussss!

The Native American “third wife” kills herself to distract the vampire.  Oh, oh, movie, don’t give Bella ideas.

Bella  sits there with same doped up expression

T1: Can she ever breathe through her nose?

 ****

Back with pajama stealing vamp dude.  Talks to girl.  Smashing heads. Blah.

 ****

Back to the stupid vampire council.  They think newborn vampires are after them.  Newborns are like, totes uncontrollable.  And need diapers.  Not really.  But it’d be about as interesting.

 ****

Bella back w/Dad who says he’d never stop searching if she were missing.  Oooh guilt trip.

 ****

Bella and Eddie.

Bella doesn’t know what to tell family.

Me: Mom and Dad: I am a blood sucking freak. Merry Christmas!

Bella and Eddie smooch smooch

 ****

Stupid Love Triangles Presents . . .

Stupid Love Triangles Presents . . .

Jacob and Bella

Jacob: You love me you just don’t know it yet!

Me:  Creeeeeper

T2: Batman or Dogface?  How to choose?

Jacob forces her into kiss.  Bella punches him and breaks hand.

Eddie gets madface and he and Jacob slap fight each other.

 ****

Let's just make the movie about Rosalie, huh?

Let’s just make the movie about Rosalie, huh?

Back to vampire council.  Enddddd.  Ennnndddd.  How can we only be 45 minutes in???

Rosalie has her flashback. Why is it the background vampires are all more interesting than Edward or Bella?

 Stay tuned tomorrow for more of, unfortunately, Bella and Edward.  If you dare.

Twilight Movie Recap: Part Two

Okay, we’re back for more punishment.  Hooray.  Somehow I roped the kids into joining me again. I hope I’m not damaging them for life.
When last we left our dynamic duo they were eating their exciting meal after Edward rescued stupid Bella from guys who want to kill her.  Of course, he wants to kill her, yet he’s very protective of her.  Whatever.  Here we go.

Thing One’s Twilight Interpretation. Too good not to use twice.

(Bella and Edward drive away from the restaurant.)

Bella: Your hand is so cold.

T1: Well, yeah, he’s a blood sucking demon.

(They stop at police station. Carlisle says fisher guy killed by vampires.  Charlie is sadfaced.  He’s too good an actor for this show.)

(He gives Bella mace.)

T2: Dad, this is a flashlight.

(Dramatic stare flashbacks!)

T1: That stare.  I’m gonna have nightmares.

(Bella does research in her book.  And on Google.  Ooh, excitement.  He’s strong and cold and strong and cold.  OH I GET IT!)

(At school)

T1: Bella’s still approaching him.  Shouldn’t she be running?  Oh, love the dramatic music.

(She walks away and Edward follows her.  Forest scene.)

Edward: What am I? Bella: A freak?

Edward: What am I?
Bella: A freak?

T2: Stalkiiiing Bellaaaa.

Bella: Your skin is so pale.

T1: So is yours.

(Camera spins.  We’re getting sick.)

Edward: Say it.

Me: You’re a really bad actor!

T2: You’re an orangutang!

Edward: You need to see what I look like in the sunlight.

(Oh, boy.  They fly off piggyback style.  The girls dance around like ponies.)

T2: It’s like Yoda ridin’ on Luke!

Edward sparkles: This is the skin of a killer.

The skin of a killer . . . a sparkly killer!

The skin of a killer . . . a sparkly killer!

(We laugh.  Edward leaps around like a goof.)

T2: Spark-a-lyyyy!

Edward: I’ve killed people before.

Bella: It doesn’t matter.

T1: What?  Just because he’s hot?

Edward: you’re like my own personal brand of heroin.

Me: That’s so hotttt!

(Bella gets close, like kissing close. Forced romantic crap.)

T2: Mommy, now I’m scared.

Edward: “The lion fell in love with the lamb.”

Me: Barrf.

T1: Man, you’re pathetic, Edward.

(They lie in the meadow.)

Bella, do you ever feel . . . not so fresh?

Bella, do you ever feel . . . not so fresh?

(Camera spins around them.  They want to make you sick, I guess.)

T2: Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!

T1: Why didn’t they see him sparkle, like earlier, in the class?

T2: He wasn’t in the sunlight.

T1: But there was sunlight!  Oh, whatever.  Vampires sparkle?

Bella: I’m in love with Edward.

Girls and me: What?

(Edward and Bella walk in to school together – everyone stares.  We be so cooool.)

T1: So – what you’re only in love with him since you found out he was a blood-sucking vampire?

(Edward makes creepy talk.)

T1: Uh, like, stop talkin’ bout my blood that way.

Me: Edward talks like he’s about to barfffff.  All the time.

T1: Does vampire vomit look like blood?

Me: I bet it sparkles.

T2: Like Edward!

T1: Shouldn’t she be worried her father wouldn’t approve of a blood sucker that would kill her?

(Jacob shows up.  Edward beats cheeks. Dad brings Jacob’s dad up the stairs in wheelchair.  Bumpbumpbumpbumpbump.  Dude, get a ramp.)

T1: So like a typical date for them is lying around staring?

(Edward takes Bella to meet the family.)

T1: They’re so quiet I have to turn the volume up to 40.  Ugh.

(Eddie’s family cooks a meal.  They talk about how stuff might end badly.)

Hey, no putting my girlfriend on the menu!

Hey, no putting my girlfriend on the menu!

Bella: Badly as in I would become the meal.

Me: Awwwkward.

(Jasper looks like he left his hanger in his shirt.  Edward shows all the grad hats.)

Me: You have eternal life and you choose to spend it in public school?

Edward: I don’t sleep ever.

Me: Nah, I just watch you.  Edward you are so cold – could I freeze ice cream on you?

(They dance.)

T1: Just drink her blood already will you?

Bella: I’m not scared of you.

(He flies out the window with her.)

T1: You could tell they were on a cable. Piggyback rides!  Terrible effects.

(They climb like Spiderman!  Hang in a tree.)

T2: See he IS an orangutang.

(Edward plays dramatic piano.)

T1: This is just a rip off.

Me: Of what?

T1: I don’t know.  Like a piano in a music video.

Wait . . . they actually wrote notes for this thing . . . of course they did.

Wait . . . they actually wrote notes for this thing . . . of course they did.

(At school)

Mike: I don’t get it.  He looks at you like you’re something to eat.

(Girls and I laugh)

(Dad talks to Bella.  Kid  shaking butt in background.  What?)

Dad: You should be around people.

Me: Yeah, Bella doesn’t like people.

(Bella talking to mom in her bedroom.)

Mom: Is he a jock?

(Edward appears.)

T1: No, MOM, he’s a stalker!

(Edward tries to kiss her.)

Edward: I’m going to try something.

T1: You don’t know how kissing works?

T1: Ew is he kissing her nose?  This is the slowest kiss ever.

T2: Oh, no, they’re doing it again.

(Kids freak out and try to hide in the couch.)

(Edward lays there and watches Bella sleep.)

Me: Hey, Eddie, mark on her face.

T2: Draw a peanut on her forehead.

(Bella prepares to introduce Dad to Edward.  Dad cocks gun.)

Me: I like the Dad.

End Part Two.  Stay tuned for more non-action and expert commentary from children and one immature adult!

Twilight Movie Recap: Part One

I was bored, which is always a dangerous sign.  I noticed that Speaker had reviewed the latest (and it had better be the last) Twilight movie.  Without actually watching it.  So I thought, hey, I’ll watch them ALL and see if they’re any different than her predictions.  Yes, 50 Shades has destroyed my mind.
My children decided to help me, and I do believe their commentary is better than mine.  I recorded it all – and I swear this stuff came out of their mouths.  All they knew of this series was the little bits I’d told them about it.  I identify them by the monikers Thing One or T1 (12 years old) and Thing Two or T2 (8 years old)   Yeah, they’re young, but they had mature parental guidance.  Snort.  (They are not seeing that last movie.  I’m not sure if I can.) Anyway, here we go.

I love you so much I could eat you! Nom, nom, nom.

(Producer Summit Entertainment screen comes up.)

T1: How dare you support these movies, Summit?

(Scene selection screen – Edward bounces around Bella.  Both kids scream.)

T2: Twilight – farting dawwwwn!

(Deer in forest gets chased by something.)

T1: Nooooo, Jacob, don’t eat the deer!  Runnnn!

(Bella whines her intro) (She and Charlie drive across bridge)

T2: Break, bridge, break!

(Bella walks in her room.  There is a picture of a wolf on the wall.)

T2: Oooh, it’s a wolf.   (Even they get forced foreshadowing)

(Jacob introduced.)

T1: He’s wearin’ a wig, you can tell.  “I’m not a werewolf, I’m not a werewolf!”

Nope, totally not a werewolf.

Nope, totally not a werewolf.

(Dad gives her pickup.)

T1: Perfect for Bella to drive into a tree!

(Bella drives to school.   Other students stare at her.)

T1: Like, who is that really pale girl?  Bella: “I’m so dramatic.  I haven’t smiled in 15 years.”

(First admirer sees Bella and acts like a twit.  Bella just stumbles around dazed.)

(Cut to Bella playing volleyball.)

Girls chant: Hit her in the head, hit her in the head – yayyy!

(Lunch time – Bella is introduced to other students at the lunch table.)

T1: Oh, are you kidding me?  Everyone already loves her.

(Vampires enter.)

Bella: Who are they?

T1: The cheerleaders.

(Jasper looks like he’s gonna puke.  Oh, goodie, it’s the Edward.)

T1: Why do they think he’s gorgeous?  He’s so pale.  Blech.  Enough stinkin’ dramatic music.

(Bella enters science class and walks by the fan.  Hair blows dramatically.  We all laugh.)

(Lab partner Edward covers mouth.  Looks like he’s about to hurl.)

T1: Hey, I’m not a vampire, I won’t bite you.

(That stare, oh LOL.  I’d forgotten how ridiculous it was.)

T1: He has that ability to make people depressed by looking at them.

I'm so happy and in love.

I’m so happy and in love.

(Bella talking to Mom on phone.)

Mom: Oh, Bella I miss you too.

T2: Call Buffy!

(Bella goes to school.  Two boys flirt with her.  First boy: “Hey, I’m still a loser here.”)

Like, you have girl cooties, Bella . . .

Like, you have girl cooties, Bella . . .

Edward: “I was out of town, personal reasons.”

T1: Yeah, I was killing people.

T1: You can tell Edward has the IQ of a peanut.

T1: Shouldn’t they be, like, doing their work?

T1: Half of this movie is staring.

(They walk down the hall together.  For God’s sake, Bella can’t get a sentence out.  She notices his eye color has changed.  She’s known him two days.  I don’t know my husband’s eye color.  We’ve been married 13 years.)

(Truck scene – Tyler’s van nearly hits Bella.  Edward stops van with his face.  Everyone sees, but no one notices Edward or the Edward shaped dent in the car.)

I think I'd take my chances with the car over creeper there . . .

(Bella sleeping.  Wakes up, Edward standing there.  T1 screams.)

T1: Is there a stalker in the house?

(Bella has dramatic flashbacks.)

T1: You’ve only known him for like a day.  What?

(Mike begs her for a prom date.  Bella stammers – she’s too busy staring at dorkface.  They go on a field trip.)

Teacher: Have a steaming cup of compost tea.

Girls: Ewwwww

Edward: We can’t be friends.

T1: It’s all stare, stare, stare, uh, uh, uh.

(Lunch: Edward catches the apple – oooh, it’s like the book cover.)

Just like the book cover!

Just like the book cover!

Edward: if you were smart, you’d not hang around me (so I’m going to keep hanging around you.)

Bella: Maybe I’m not smart.  (I’ll go for that one.)

Bella: Why don’t we hang out?

T1: Worst decision ever.

(La Push beach.  Bella milks Jacob for info.)

T1: I’m a werewolf.  Wait, no!

Jacob: We’re like descended from wolves.  (Explains treaty with Cold Ones.)

T1: Okay this is lame.

Jacob: It’s just a story.

T1: Yeah, like it’s not like they’re vampires.

(Vampires show up and attack  fisherman guy.)

T1: Duck and cover!

(Bella Google searches.)

Hot googling action.

Hot Googling Action

At some point, T2 got bored and started coloring.  Don’t blame her.

(Bella asks to go with girls to Port Angelus not for friendship but to find out about Edward.  Twit.  She’s all alone, walking down dark alley.  Stalkers.  Hey, everybody loves Bella!   Edward drives the Bat Volvo up – okay the rapists are smart enough to be scared, but not Bella.  Edward escapes with Bella.)

T1: Talk about bad driving.

(Bella eats w/ Edward.)

Bella: Did you follow me?

T1: Duh, I’m a stalker.

End Part One.  Stay tuned.  I’m not sure if I’ll lose my fellow reviewers or not.  They’re saner than I am.
