Pairs Division: Pattinson and Stewart

Posted on November 15, 2011

Dolls, we don’t know if you heard, but there’s this Twilight movie thing coming out.

 

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart attend “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1″ Los Angeles Premiere. Kristen Stewart is wearing a J. Mendel dress.

J. Mendel Spring 2012 Collection/Model: Patricia van der Vliet

We don’t follow the Twilight thing at all, but this is the last one, right? Please tell us it’s the last one. You might ask, “But T Lo, if you don’t follow it, why do you care if it’s the last one or not?” To which we might be heard to reply, “True. True story. But we’re sick to death of the commercials and the hysteria and the ‘Team Sullen Actor A’ and ‘Team Affectless Actor B,’ and the shrieking mob of fans that are almost certainly going to go all jihad on us on twitter for saying this, and then there’s the fact that if this really IS the last one, then we only have to feature these two standing next to each other stiffly a couple more times.”

We’re talky sorts when you get us going.

Anyway, we can’t help but laugh at these two. It’s a sea of frantic hysteria surrounding them on all sides and they look like they couldn’t be bothered to pick their noses if boogies were dangling out of them. The one picture where they both manage to pull their faces into something we suppose resembles a smile, they are not only pushing away from each other, but look to be in physical pain. We’re telling you, ten years from now, western culture will wake up and say to itself, “What the HELL were we all going on about with that ‘Twilight’ thing?”

Hit it, you little ambassadors of cheer.

HE: Needs a mouthy publicist. Perhaps an obnoxious gay or a tiny little woman with a big mouth. Either will do. Because if he had a mouthy publicist, she’d tell him to not pose like that on the red carpet because it makes his suit look terrible. We’ve had our pictures taken as a couple enough times to know:

Standing Next to Each Other But Apart: Jacket closed.

Standing next to Each Other But with Your Arm Around Her Like You Like Her: Jacket open.

The gay kittens do tend to get pissed at us when we harp on this sort of thing. Suck it up, bros. The ladies constantly have to hear us rail against unflattering hem lengths and bad shoes. You can handle a little bitchiness yourselves.

Anyway, the posing is unfortunate, but the suit is pretty great. Score: 8/10. We just can’t with that fungal facial hair he has.

SHE: Is now free to leave the vampire stuff behind her and become the USO entertainer of her generation, bringing laughter, joy and song to our fighting men and women overseas. Expect a press release any day now. In the meantime, she’s wearing one KILLA dress. Makeup’s a bit on the heavy side (cue commentariat: “A BIT?!?“), but she has the kind of face that really looks good in the ultra-glam makeup mode. Our only points of contention are the hair, which seems kind of drab for such a POW! look and the shoes, which look standard and like an afterthought. Otherwise, she looks pretty amazing. Score: 8.5/10.

 

Combined Score: 8.25/10. Well done, pet rocks of the oughties.

Wait… Part ONE?

Shit.

      Oh, no there is one more movie.  They had to copy Harry Potter and make the last book into 2 movies.  

      I love that color on Kristen.  Just love it.

      • Jessica O’Connell

        Unfortunately, yes, they couldn’t let a Harry Potter idea go by without copying it so we’ll have to suffer through another ad campaign of this BS…

        Sorry, did I just show my hate for Twilight a little? Whoopsy.

    • Anonymous

      Uh guys… uhm don’t know how to tell you this. The film’s title is the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. Me thinks that the ‘part 1′ means there will be a part 2 (and possibly more). I also thought we were done with the whole twilight thing. How many movies have there been? three or four?

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        This is the 4th movie out of 5.  Technically the series ends at book 4 (which was split into 2 movies).

        However… Stephanie Meyers is a terrible writer.  And I’m not saying that because I don’t personally like it, I’m saying it from a technical and artistic standpoint, her work sucks.  She will not have a career outside of Twilight.  So if she wants to keep working (and she may not — she’s got truckloads of cash at this point), my guess is that we’ll be seeing a companion series to Twilight before long.  My guess is either the baby from the final book after growing up a bit, or a prequel on one of the other couples. 

        Sorry:(

        • Rand Ortega

          I agree. But what about her book/series, “The Host”? Is that “Twilight” connected? Adjacent? I don’t know anything about it, but you’ve given me (probably, sadly, false) hope about her not going any further as a writer, yet I’m hearing about a movie version re: this new thing.

          • Anonymous

            I’ve read the Host. It’s only slightly better than Twilight but not by much. It has absolutely nothing to do with the Twilight series. Though I’m not sure if she intended to make a sequel for it. I read it years ago so I can’t remember how it ended but I think there was a possibility for another book. Then there was this thing ages ago about how she was going to rewrite the first book from Edward’s POV but it got leaked and so she decided not to write it again until people stopped talking about it or something. I don’t know but I hope this is really it for her. She’s gotten more than enough money and success off of this franchise and I don’t think she should resurface again until she’s improved her writing style.

            • Anonymous

              Well, Host ends in sequel bait, so I wouldn’t be surprised if more came out of it. Pretty much the only way Host is better than Twilight is that the romances were less stalker-ish, which can only be a good
              thing.

              And yeah, Midnight Sun was leaked and she threw a temper tantrum and won’t be publishing. Which, from what I read of the leaked chapters, can only be good. If you thought Edward was unbearable before…

              ~sigh~ And I just outed myself as a reformed Twilight fan, didn’t I? Have pity on my younger, utterly tasteless self, please.

              Oh don’t worry about that. I am right in that boat with you. I feel so much shame that I wasted my time with those books when I was about 16. I’m older (at 21) and much wiser now.

              I thought the issue with it being leaked was not that people had read it, but the fact that the internet was completely abuzz with how bad it sucked.  If you’ve heard any Meyer interviews it becomes quite clear that she has a completely unfounded high opinion of her writing, so refusing to finish it was a bit of a temper tantrum.  She may be creative and have good ideas, but no one can say her writing doesn’t suck.  I liked Stephen King’s take when he was expressing irritation at the comparisons between Twilight and Harry Potter.  I believe his answer was, “the difference is that Jo [JK Rowling] is actually a good writer”.

            • Anonymous

              Oh was that why? It happened just as I was coming to my senses, so I only followed the scandal peripherally through her website, where she went on and on about how betrayed and hurt she felt that someone would do something like that to her. It felt drama queen even to my still fairly infatuated brain. (It does suck though. Lots.)

          • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

            The thing is, the numbers for The Host haven’t been anywhere near as good.  What readers want from her is more Twilight, and if she can’t make anything else fly, she can keep going back to that well forever. 

            • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

              Because forever is just the beginning, LOL.  My friends & I were discussing how we’d like her to write about what happens to the Cullens after the Earth dies and they’re stuck in space because they can’t die.

          I agree. The basic idea of Twilight is okay (though not exactly new) but the way that it was written is just awful. I found it impossible to really feel for any of these characters. It’s very amateurish and the whole series often read like fanfiction (albeit not very well written fanfiction). I too wouldn’t be surprised if there were spinoffs, unfortunately.

          • Anonymous

            I have read Twilight fanfiction that was better than the ~2 pages of the actual book I read.  

            (That sounds incredibly odd, I know.  I read a Twilight fanfiction that was written with the premise of Bella as an intelligent, proactive, and self-aware human being.  It was… actually pretty awesome.)

            • Anonymous

              Oh yeah, there’s way better fanfic out there. I mean, there’s almost always at least /one/ fic that’s better than canon, but in Twilight’s case there’s actually quite a bit.

        • http://orangtunes.blogspot.com BIG MAC

          This so much. The biggest problem I have with Twilight is the writing. And personally, I could never get into the Harry Potter books because I don’t like how J.K. Rowling writes either. However I have no problem watching the movies for Harry Potter(even though I never do lol). I like the story and characters. Twilight though…

          • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

            Oh, that’s sacrilege!  Not like JK Rowling!  How?!?  Her writing isn’t complex but it’s for young kids, so it shouldn’t be!

            Not as bad as finding out a friend hated To Kill a Mockingbird, but close….

            • http://orangtunes.blogspot.com BIG MAC

              I just could not get into it. I tried to as a child when the first book came out, and hated it. Tried again a couple of years later and couldn’t read it either. I really just don’t like how its written, something just really irks me about it. I couldn’t specifically tell you though, because I haven’t touched a Harry Potter book in years lol. 

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              I have to admit to a certain weakness for children’s books in general — I read the entire Narnia series every year for my birthday. 

            • Jessica O’Connell

              Did you stop at the first or second chapter of Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone? She’s said on a number of occasions that the writing there is pretty bad because she had to fit so much information into the beginning to properly set up the wizarding world. I actually LOVE JK Rowling’s writing style. I think it’s pretty remarkable the detail she gets in there and how that envelopes the reader and pulls them into her world. I’d suggest trying to read at least the first 5 chapters of the first book and then decide. If you still don’t like it, well I won’t say you’re strange, but I will say that I don’t understand you all that well lol :-)

            • http://orangtunes.blogspot.com BIG MAC

              I read to up to the 6th or 7th chapter before I couldn’t read it anymore lol. I’m just not a JK Rowling fan, but I do admire her for all her hard work and that she did create a series so many people cherish. So not hatin on her personally lol, just don’t like how she writes.

            My biggest issue with the twilight series is the wretched acting. Although it is debatable as to whether it should be called acting, it’s so dreadful.

        • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

          Oh Twilight.  I love you so much for being so bad that you’re amazing.  And then for generating movies that are so terrible they are HILARIOUS.  We all need a bit of brain candy and since pharmaceuticals can kill you, I’ll stick to pseudo-literature for sexually repressed and emotionally regressive teenagers.

          I’m dying to see how they do the final battle, for which I will have to wait til summer to see.  It’s a battle that happens totally in their minds.  People will be busy making faces that cause you to think they’re constipated.

      While I agree that her dress is pretty great, I do not understand why the skirt is lined in that light grey, almost white color. It makes the dress look unfinished, like it’s a PR piece whose designer didn’t have enough money to buy good lining fabric at Mood. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

        If you’ll noticed, the runway version is unlined–the one they came up with was probably supposed to kinda sorta look like her skin tone, but some intern probably fucked up and got a grey lining.  He now works at TV Guide.

        It makes her look like she was rescued from drowning in a frozen lake, I forgot to say that in my comment.

        I completely agree about the lining!  It’s all I can see in those pictures and totally distracts from what is otherwise a pretty great dress!

        I was all set to rave about that gorgeous dress until I saw the white lining.  It really detracts from the overall look.

      I dunno. I would not rate her so high just because there is zero werq-factor. It is a beautiful dress and she looks like a beautiful mannequin, but  she also looks completely unaware of what she is wearing and why. Him, I don’t see the point. I don’t follow Twilight but I guess I don’t mind its prolongation because it means I don’t have to figure out what he next pet rock will be.

      You guys are so funny, I should add. And right about everything in the world.

      I am so with you on ending this Twilight thing. Some gals from work actually dragged me to one of the movies–the second, I think–and it was so bad I actually got pissed off and started muttering under my breath. Think Elaine Benes and The English Patient. At one point they referenced the fact that Edward can’t read whatshername’s thoughts (a big deal apparently) and I said–almost shouted–”That’s because she has no thoughts!”

      I wasn’t invited to the next Twilight showing.

      • Maria Rosenfire

        I know, right? My roommate adores Twilight and wants to go see the new movie, and I have no idea how I’m going to restrain myself from alternately cackling, groaning in embarrassment, and shaking my fist at the screen. I actually barked like a seal with laughter during the second one when Taylor Lautner whipped off his shirt to mop Bella’s brow after the motorcycle scene.

        • Rachel Sawyer

          Yeah, it’s bad. I even find myself harboring a sort of residual resentment against the entire Pacific Northwest because everytime Washington state or Oregon is mentioned I picture that movie.

      I think it’s a beautiful dress – but I think it looks bad on her.  I just don’t get her.  She looks great when she’s in jeans and a t-shirt.  But she just always seems too angry or pissed off to do “beautiful”.  I bet I would have loved her in this with a short hemline and knee-high boots.  Maybe she should try to shoot for “kick-ass”, maybe that’s her look…

      Oh, you all are so hard on us Twilight fans. I suppose if I hadn’t read the books, I might be annoyed with all the movie hype too… but I did, and they are great! There’s a reason everyone loves them so much. Can someone back me up here?  I’m just glad that the younger generation is still reading books at all!

      Shoot, this is supposed to be about the fashion. I really like her dress. He looks about the same as always.

        I read the books and actually hate myself for it, I thought they were pretty awful :(

        Guess I’m too old, couldn’t get past page 1 and Stephanie Myers came off as batshit.

      • Anonymous

        I read the books out of curiosity and because I wanted to prescreen the content for my daughter (who was in 5th grade at the time) who wanted to read them. I told her she had to wait a few years. Last year, she got halfway through the first one and threw it aside because, in her words, “The writing wasn’t very good.” Hee…

        My take: Meyers can pen a page turner, that’s for sure, but I found much of the prose to be cliched. I did not care for the Bella/Edward dynamic through much of the series (esp at the beginning). I hated that she felt worthless compared to him and that he patronized the shit out of her. I REALLY hated the imprinting bit at the end of the series. But in all, it was a fun, quick, guilty-pleasure kind of read.

          Also, really bad messages for young girls about what twoo wuv is.

          • Anonymous

            You hit on the exact reason I wanted my daughter to wait to read it. I told her that as an adult, I could take the relationship depiction with a grain of salt, but that she hadn’t lived enough to understand why so much of Meyer’s depiction of “twoo wuv” (yay princess bride!) is so f’d up to me. I think my words were “I don’t want you to think that this is how relationships are supposed to be.” At first she gave me the 10 yo “whatever” but then she understood when she started reading it.

          • Anonymous

            That is very true. But fantasy fiction books should not be looked to for messages. Everything doesn’t have to be a lesson.

            • Sobaika Mirza

              That’s funny – I’ve found sci-fi/fantasy to be more progressive than most genres.

              And no, not everything should have a lesson, but everything inevitably does. Disney, love stories, all of it presents a very strong message to kids and young girls in particular, especially when presented in conjunction.

            • Anonymous

              Fantasy fiction shouldn’t be looked for for messages, but neither should it promote stuff like stalking and denying a woman her agency and unhealthy relationship dynamics without some indication that it’s not the way things should be. I know it’s hard to do that without breaking character, but surely there could have been some way to change the tone so that Edward did not come off as perfect and lovely and the better person.

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              Fantasy has more message than most genres — you can explore good and evil, right and wrong, on a much deeper level than most genres allow, simply because of the scope. 

              That said, I think some points can be made in favor of Twilight regarding its relationship messages.   I know all the bad points and don’t disagree.  BUT… one can also point to it as proof that a guy that cares about you and your well-being is willing to wait for your body. 

              ETA: There’s also the part in the second book after he leaves (I have only read them once, I swear, but I have a fantastic memory for details I read:) when she falls apart completely. And she does incredibly stupid, self-destructive things through most of that time. But as a parent, one can point out all of the things she had left during that time that she was ignoring — I found it a scarily accurate depiction of depression, and I think it can be used as a fine cautionary tale. “See, if she’d thrown her life away, he would have died too, and neither of them could have had their happy ending!”

        I read the first one . One of my kids wanted to read it and I thought I should read it first since I had heard a lot of negative stuff about it. Frankly I  was somewhat baffled by all the criticism and the praise as well. It’s Jane Eyre with vampires, which I’m no fan of but they teach that damn book in school. Anyway I pretended like I thought it was interesting . Mostly because I remember how awful it is to like something that your parents  mock and scorn (like fashion or comic books for instance). She read all the books, but is pretty much over it now.

            I might have her mixed up with  the another one. I haven’t read it since “I” was 17. But I thought she  went to work for an older, brooding, man who was married to a  mad woman that he kept locked in a room in his mansion. He was “changed” by her love. Fate intervened the house burned down along with the mad wife , he went blind and she got to take care of him for the rest of her life. Terrible.
            I don’t think the character Bella is great by any means either.

              Oh, Jane and Rochester’s relationship is cracktastic in the beginning, but at least when she finds out how toxic he is she leaves him and would rather be on her own (and be her own person) than with him. It’s only once his situation changes, and he along with it, that she goes back. Still not my favorite novel, and I don’t agree with it being held up as a great love story, but at least Jane had some backbone. And at least Charlotte Bronte’s writing is of a high caliber. And, even though I first read it when I was about 13, I doubt most girls encounter it as early (and at such an impressionable age) as they do the Twilight novels. And it’s set in the 19th century, which gives the reader a little distance from the story. :-)

              I’ll go you one further: ROMEO AND FREAKING JULIET!!!  It’s taught in FRESHMAN English to 14 year old girls as the most romantic story of all time.  Excuse me?  A guy who fucks anything that moves and claims it’s out of love?  And a girl who is so pathologically disturbed that she is willing to throw away everything for him and then kills herself just because he did?  I sat in Freshman English gritting my teeth and bitching daily about that damn stupid play!

              I am a BIG Shakespeare fan. I have studied him, performed him, and directed him. But R&J leaves me cold, just as it did when we studied it in 8th grade and then watched the Franco Zeffirelli movie. I have never understood why that story was considered romantic. I identified more with Mercutio. Give me Benedick and Beatrice over Romeo and Juliet any day!

              EXACTLY!!!  My high school had a really interesting English program: Freshman and Sophomore, and then your last 2 years were done in 9 week classes of your choice (kinda like a college set-up), as long as you had 1 literature, 1 composition, and 1 communication.  So you were only REQUIRED to read TWO plays from Shakespeare (though you had the option of taking Shakespeare 1, 2, and 3): Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet. 

              Yep, of all the great Shakespeare (Twelfth Night, Taming of the Shrew, As You Like It, Much Ado about Nothing, Macbeth, Hamlet, King Lear… any of them would have been better) they chose my LEAST favorite.

            • Anonymous

              Ugh, had to read Julius Caesar, too, in 9th grade. The MOST boring play. The last one (10th grade) was Macbeth, which was great. We even watched the Roman Polanksi film; NO idea how that got past the school administration! ;-) No Shakespeare in 11th grade. Finally in 12th grade we worked in groups and could choose our own play to read, report on, and perform scenes from in groups. My group chose Twelfth Night, and we cross-cast the roles, so I got to play Sir Andrew. If schools would only study the comedies more (or at all), and expose kids to the plays in performance, I think students would enjoy Shakespeare. But maybe the concern there is explaining all of the bawdy humor. Serial murders in Macbeth? Fine. Dirty jokes in As You Like It? Evidently not fine. America is ridiculous.

              I liked Julius Caesar — for one thing, it had some great speeches.  Also, I took Latin and did Latin Club and Classics competitions (yep, I’m THAT big of a dork:) so it was right up my alley. 

              Besides, it generated one of the funniest moments in my high school career — a girl in my group was using Cliff Notes to try and understand it and insisted that “Et tu, Brute?” was French because a)she took French and it’s the same, and b)Cliff Notes told her it was.  “You know this is set in ROME, right?  Before the French language was invented?  And written before when all Catholic ceremonies were done in Latin, so it was exceedingly common?”

      Nope, this isn’t the end quite yet. They made this last book into a two parter (copycats). So I for one am counting down the days until this monstrosity is over. Anyways, as far as the clothes are concerned…meh. That split is pretty high.

      Your scoring is fair, as is your rant about the movies. I would up her score to a 9 or 9.5, but maybe I’m just grading Stewart on a curve. I love everything about her look, with a minor quibble with the hair. Don’t mind it up, but don’t like the helmet thing she has going on.

      I kind of like him. He has this “What the fuck did I get myself into?” quality about him that cracks me up. (Yes, I know, don’t flame me b/c he is making millions and is now world famous…I understand the money and perks he enjoys.) Like his suit, but not the deployment, as you pointed out so well T Lo.

      ETA: Not only will you see more the Twilight gang when Part 2 of this movie comes out, but you’ll be seeing them for years to come when “Twilight The Musical!” premieres and “The Twilight Saga Magic Kingdom Adventure Land” opens in Orlando and “Twilight on Ice” comes to an arena near you.

          See, I don’t buy that.  Kristen Stewart didn’t totally understand what she was getting into.  But Pattinson was Cedric Digory before he was Edward Cullen, and while Cedric wasn’t a huge part of the movie, he was around enough to know what it meant when you did a project based on something that popular.

          • Sobaika Mirza

            Pattinson is British and hadn’t heard of Twilight before the audition. He attempted to read the book and then gave up. And he’s openly acknowledged how bad he thinks it is, even mocks in interviews. Even if we assume he knew exactly what he was getting himself into, there’s not denying the sense of disdain he has for it.

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              Oh, I totally believe he doesn’t like it — frankly, who would with the amount of craziness surrounding him from it?  But he didn’t go into this as unprepared as Kristen Stewart did, and sometimes I get the feeling that he’s trying to pretend he did.  (Even if he hadn’t read it before the audition, he must have realized before filming began what it was going to be like, at least somewhat.)

            • Alisa Rivera

              I don’t know. When he appeared at Comic Con to promote the first movie, he was attacked by a mob of screaming girls and when he was interviewed later he looked haunted, like he was recounting his experiences in ‘Nam. He described the sound as “something you’d hear at the gates of hell.” I really don’t think he had a clue how batshit the true fans were going to be.

      • Maria Rosenfire

        My favorite quote from RPattz about Twilight:

        “When you read the book,” says Pattinson, looking appropriately pallid
        and interesting even without makeup, “it’s like, ‘Edward Cullen was so
        beautiful I creamed myself.’ I mean, every line is like that.
        He’s the most ridiculous person who’s so amazing at everything. I think a
        lot of actors tried to play that aspect. I just couldn’t do that. And
        the more I read the script, the more I hated this guy, so that’s how I
        played him, as a manic-depressive who hates himself. Plus, he’s a
        108-year-old virgin so he’s obviously got some issues there.”

        That interview is most of the reason that I like him, because he really can’t act. He has a nice singing voice, though. Kind of bluesy.

        • Anonymous

          I’ve liked the few Pattinson interviews I’ve read. He’s pretty funny. Edward does possess quite a bit of self-loathing, so I’m sure it worked to Pattinson’s favor to play him that way.

    • http://twitter.com/Emcee_Escher R. Beers

      Thing is, Rob Pattinson really doesn’t give a s#!t about Twilight, and in fact mocks it endlessly, so that someone’s motivated him to put in even this much effort at a premier speaks to their abilities as an agent/publicist/stylist/whatever.

      The dress suits her, and she’s smiling, sort of. I don’t think she looks amazing due to her ever-present ennui, but she does look as glamorous and pleasant as I’ve ever seen her. 7/10

      He looks okay, but he still somehow manages to make what’s probably a very expensive suit look sloppy & his pants could be hemmed a shoosh more. I think an 8 is generous. I’d give him a 7.5/10

      I have to agree she looks good. I like the eye makeup (they really pop) and the dress suits her and is very, very beautiful. It takes a very special girl to make all that… unappealing? She just does not call my interest. I find her childish and repetitive. 

      He: I’ve said it MANY tomes before and I’ll say it gain: I CANNOT STAND DIRTY HAIR. The suit is a very pretty blue but that askew tie and no belt is getting ridic, and he is coming close to Shia Le Barf levels of annoyance ability.

      Twilight’s #1 hater is Robert Pattinson, so the fact that someone got him to bathe for this is impressive in and of itself. I actually now flove him thanks to his live, on the air rants on big time national television about how stupid the books and movies are and how he essentially didn’t bother to act in any of them. The man has some serious balls.

      I don’t understand all of the hatred for her, either. She seems like someone who is prob fun to hang out with who just wants to roll a few blunts and prob watch weird indie cartoons. Not be a Hollywood starlet.

      You know, I hated both of them at the start just because they were associated with the Twilight franchise and those books are terribad. But Kristen Stewart has really grown on me. She seems to have a pretty wry sense of humour about the whole deal that I find endearing.

      It also helps that she’s been looking much better on the red carpet recently than she did at the start of this whole gig.

      I discovered that we women don’t look good either with closed jackets and our arms around other people.  The jacket pulls and then you look twice as wide as you really are.  I think it is a unisex rule.

      I originally read the books and they were a fast page-turning read but easy to put down at any time.  The last two books were the worst.  Maybe Ms. Meyer got sick of her own writing.

      I remember a gay friend telling me that Ms. Meyer contributes her income from these books to the Mormon church’s anti-gay promotions.  Anybody else heard this?  That alone sounded like a good enough reason to hate the books but I had already read them.

      I hate Twilight with a fiery passion.  I have been a fan of vampires since I was a child (Bela Lugosi in Dracula, George Hamilton in Love at First Bite) and they DO NOT sparkle! 

      On top of that, Stephenie Meyer can’t write.  She admits she can’t read other vampire books because they are different from hers.  She had this to say about Anne Rice’s vampires:  “I’ve seen little pieces of Interview with a Vampire when it was on TV, but I kind of always go YUCK!” 

      On the flip side, Anne Rice had this to say:  “Lestat and Louie feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun.  They would never hurt
      immortals who choose to spend eternity going to high school over and
      over again in a small town — anymore than they would hurt the physically
      disabled or the mentally challenged. My vampires possess gravitas. They
      can afford to be merciful.”

      See the difference?

        Oh my God, I love Anne Rice.  She’s pretentious as hell and very prickly about her vampires.  And she aspires to have her books considered great literature.  They aren’t, but the woman can write a hell of a story and has a vast range of knowledge.  I do love her and her quirky passions.  Stephanie Meyer isn’t fit to sharpen Anne’s pencils.

But he’s really talented, and grossly under-appreciated, IMO. He’s had some nice gigs on everything from Without a Trace to a recent appearance on Supernatural (with Charisma Carpenter as his wife). I hope they bring him back. He’d make a nice foil/reluctant ally for the boys.

          There are actually photos on the web of the makeover, and now I’m feeling a bit bad because I was so harsh and judgmental about the design. It’s just not my taste.

        i’m with you on mr. pattinson.  to me he always looks slimy and clammy, like he’s laid out in the morgue.  i feel the same way about that caruso guy who used to be on CSI miami.  they both look like they’ve never seen the light of day.

      Love her dress–it looks fantastic on her.  The shoes are pretty standard, I guess, but I think the black peep-toe platform was just the shoe for this dress.  Sexy without being too complicated.

      This is the best I’ve seen her look on the red carpet. I hate how high that slit is, and a different lining would have helped, but that’s a Mendel issue, not a Stewart issue. A great style and color for her.

      She manages to make that dress look like expensive Christmas wrapping paper.

    • oohsparkley!

      Gorgeous dress!  They should have gone with a black or blue lining.  I’ve enjoyed the books and the movies.  I’m not very judgmental or overly critical in my mindless entertainment. I like looking at the pretty people.

      Yes, just Part I.  God help us.

      Otherwise, love the dress, but she looks so awkward and uncomfortable, she sinks the look.  He has gotten a bit odd looking as he’s gotten older.  Much cuter in his Harry Potter days.

      You overrated him to amazing extremes. He looks like he’s been hanging at OWS for a month.

      photo #1  she:  i am so bored of standing here letting the common people stare at my perfect legs.  he:  check out my shifty eyes  
      #2  she:  how much longer do i have to stand here?   he: kind of look like elvis, don’t i?
      #3  she:  this is my patented movie star smile   he:  wait, is that a flying saucer?
      #4  she:  ew, get off me!   he: haha the stinks on you now.
      #5  she:  are we almost done here?  he: “you ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog…..”
      #6  she:  i am so gonna take a looong bubble bath when this is over.   he:  ok, i’ll try to look normal for a minute.

      That color looks wonderful on her. Very pretty.

      That’s the best I have seen her look, and in one picture she actually IS smiling. I can only imagine she’s thinking that her Twilight Saga imprisonment is just about ended and she’ll be able to move onto something more interesting. Of course, reading the phone book would be more interesting than her Twilight character.

      Him? The less said, the better.

      Um, aren’t they already doing it? It’s crap and just about everybody with the slightest bit of a thinking brain knows it. It’s a way foregone conclusion.

      And, yes, he’s pretty much torturing that poor suit posing whatever the way is he is posing.

      Don’t much care for the films — snoozy — but she looks amazing.  Love the dress, her hair, and makeup.  Gorgeous.

      These two always look like they’re just walking to a McDonald’s regardless of what they’re wearing. Which in some regards is admirable because they clearly haven’t let the fame get to them at all. On the flip side, they still need to learn that there is a time and a place for everything. People don’t come to see you slouch, they come to see you at your best, presenting yourself like you really have some pride in your work. So they should work with someone on self image, and that you can still be yourself and be clean lol.

      Oh me, oh my…more candidates for the TLo how to look good in front of the camera.

      She: Looks hot but the slit goes a bit too high…might show off “the good china”

      He: Makes a very expensive suit look like it came from T J Maxx. Please do something with that hair.

      God!  MORE Twilight!  Get some real vampires like Lestat!  And some real actors (unlike Tom Cruise).

      Sorry TLo, and the world, but this is PART 1! It’s enough to make a bitter kitten gag. Ugh. As far as their look here, it’s nice to see her in a color. HE NEEDS TO SHAVE.

      Her face looks like she just fell out of a Robert Palmer video.

      Dress is nice though.

      To me they always look like the not-quite-bright couple that all the out kids look up to because they’ve mastered the adolescent attitude of faux sophistication that is so cherished in high school but is so laughable soon after. 

      But that is the best I’ve seen her look. Love the dress. He looks like he always looks, which is slightly better than that pushed-in-face other Twiguy.

      Ok, y’all brought Buffy into this and I am now loling.  Twilight has got to be the most depressingly boring story about vampires.  Meyer is a hack.

      He’s 48 hrs overdue for a shower.  She looks pretty, agree about the ugly dress lining.  On the face, a boring couple.  Steward is starring as Snow White?  I hope it is the MacGuire adaptation.

      Twilight sucks. Yay for teaching impressionable young women that abuse and stalking is a-okay. If he won’t let you leave the house, it means he loves you! fuck that

      oh. sorry. what were we talking about?

      You guys crack me up.
      “free to leave the vampire stuff behind her and become the USO
      entertainer of her generation, bringing laughter, joy and song to our
      fighting men and women overseas”

      You were fair, but kind, to both. Or is it kind, but fair?

      I don’t understand how she can be so un-sexy in a pretty darn good dress slit up to there, but she is. (or, at least, is to me.)

      She almost looks not sad here.  Not sure I’d call it happy.  Nice to see it finally.

      Part one?? What?!? I thought they got married in this one and had a little vampire baby and it was over? Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer! Meanwhile, she looks great (for her — I think she’s a very hot young lesbian who really hates all this fussy dressing up) and he needs to be stripped, thrown in a hot shower and scrubbed down with Palmolive.

      If SHE could get some lessons on how to pose. I’m sick of the slouched shoulders. Put those shoulders down and back, and let the ladies perk up!

      TLo said: We don’t follow the Twilight thing at all, but this is the last one, right? Please tell us it’s the last one. You might ask, “But T Lo, if you don’t follow it, why do you care if it’s the last one or not?” To which we might be heard to reply, “True. True story. But we’re sick to death of the commercials and the hysteria and the ‘Team Sullen Actor A’ and ‘Team Affectless Actor B,’ and the shrieking mob of fans that are almost certainly going to go all jihad on us on twitter for saying this”

      Oh, boys, thank you SO much for the laugh at the end of a day filled with too much drama!

      I think his suit is a bit boring. I just hope you guys aren’t grading him on a curve because he finally got shirt collar situation sorted. :P

      The dress looks like it was made from hanukkah wrap.  As for the books and movies, even my 12 year old thinks they’re about mopey teenagers. 

    • fragileindustries

      Reluctantly must admit that IS a killa dress and she wears it well.  Even more reluctantly, must say that those shoes are kind of sleepers … while not coated in bling or an insane-yet-hip color, have heels that must be 8″ tall!  Serious fetish territory, and they give her the elevation to carry off the dress.  Yeah, the makeup is skanky.  But a big step up [pun intentional] for one of my least favorite red carpet spectacles.  Him, feh.  Buttoned, unbuttoned, he doesn’t have it for me, except maybe as a too-old Tadzio in Death in Venice.

      I wish her stylist would have more fun with her, instead of trying to make her look like Anne Hathaway, somehow work in the awkward tomboy-ishness.  This just looks too glam for her.

      Why are they so sad? I sure the movie will do OK for a few weekends and sell a ton of DVDs. His suit looks all rumpled and She seems to want to be somewhere else. Sureit’s a franchise and it WILL ALL BE OVER SOMEDAY. But aren’t you Having Fun While It Lasts?
