PostSubject: 50 things wrong with Twilight lol!   Mon Nov 24, 2008 12:55 am

I stumbled upon this user review of Twilight and OMG it was totally utterly ridiculous...so ridiculous I had to post it. Some people read too into things! When I read this I didn't notice any of the shit she was talking about...people just like to be negative cause they can! Sad thing is a lot of people felt this way also.


Quote :


1. The movie was uninformative enough to keep non-readers thoroughly confused.
2. The lines were cute in the book, but corny and forced in the movie.
3. The movie is hardly ever in Bella's perspective, so we are emotionally unattached.
4. Because of that attachment, it's impossible to understand the sudden friendship, hatred, and obsession.
5. The acting was... lets face it... horrendous.
6. The facial expressions used were nearly comical when they were to be dramatic
7. The main characters were monotone.
8. While the good, emotional, and overall better actors were lost in the background.
9. The audience was lost on weather to believe dramatic moments were SUPPOSED to be funny or not.
10. You never find out about the character's pasts.
11. Because of that, non-readers are left off confused about characters.
12. Bella can't seem to handle the concept of "happy" or "upset"
13. The only emotions she was good at were "monotone" "seizure" and "screaming in agony"
14. Many major scenes were cut out to help shorten the film.
15. And even with that, they felt the need to expand the prom scene too much.
16. And add in the hideous "spider-monkey" scene
16.... and not even touch the subject of why Bella was pissed at Edward in the beginning. (The "Why didn't you just let the van crush me" scene)
17. Movies are expensive.
18. The "spider-monkey" scene
19. The special effects were only good for one scene.
20. Edward climbed up the trees like a squirrel on crack.
21. The movements that were supposed to symbolize the vampires moving quickly looked fake.
20. Slow motion was abused to DEATH in this movie.
21. Overacting
22. Stupid, pointless scenes that made people laugh instead of feel drama (the part where Edward is passing Billy and they stare like each others heads are on fire)
23. The emotions in the face are meant for 5 year-old's who can't read emotions without having them thrown into their face like an emotional brick.
24. The camera angles are awkward and choppy.
25. The camera seems to zoom in on their faces to the point where you can't tell what they're doing at all.
26. Bella and Edward's relationship was reduced to that of bare acquaintances.
27. ... and then the audience was somehow supposed to believe that they were friends at some point. ("Bella, we shouldn't be friends")
28. ... and then somehow switch to them being madly in love without any indicators of that ever happening ("I don't have the strength to leave you alone anymore")
30. The meadow scene in general was a complete disaster. What once was the favorite part of the book for many teenage girls was reduced to Edward jumping around awkwardly and Bella saying random lines that were so forced it was funny.
31. Bella blinks WAY TOO MUCH. I'm not even being OCD about it. I had several people mention it after the premiere about how much they hated the fact that Bella had fluttering eyelids throughout the whole movie.
32. Bella was very awkward in the beginning.
33. And then the whole movie seemed to become awkward by the end.
34. Bella and Edward looked more like a couple that their parents were forcing them on a play-date together.
33. Edward's face had so much caked-on makeup it was disgusting and there are brief scenes where you can see makeup lines.
34. Edward's lips change from normal to looking like he had eaten a cherry popsicle.
35. Edward had on a hideous amount of eye-liner.
36. Bella's hospital scene where she was "bandaged, bruised, etc..." was reduced to nothing more than her lying in a bed with a small piece of tubing on her nose.
37. Carlisle looked as if his face was 40% plastic, 10% body oil, and 40% Botox.
38. Jasper looked like a scared transvestite with Barbie-doll hair.
39. All of the admired characters that had decent acting skills were shoved into the background.
40. It seemed as if they were supposed to include the eyes being a big impact, but it was hard to ever tell the difference between when they were red or gold. They mostly just looked black.
41. In the book, it was slightly adorable and slightly creepy that Edward watched Bella as she slept. In the movie, it was beyond creepy.
42. It went from "I know you're a vampire." straight to "Look! I'm more sparkly than a drag queen!"
43. The lines were awkward, even for the audience.
44. Aka "Hold on tight spider-monkey"
45. A Broadway show is less obvious with their harnesses and wires to keep people flying. This movie was so obvious with the "climbing-up-a-tree" scene.
46. The action scenes seemed to be the only scenes where there was good acting.
47. When Edward suggests he should leave Bella (at the end) her eyes blink so much it makes me think of strobe lights, and her limbs start twitching like she's having a seizure.
48. The music seemed to be forced and misplaced at inopportune moments.
49. Accents were too hard to drop and there were moments where Edward was suddenly British.
50. It seemed to be more of a giant spoof on the book rather than a tasteful representation.

i stopped at #9 when they said....The audience was lost on weather to believe..when they learn how to spell the words correctly i will pay attn to them. this coming from someone who can't spell for shit or really care half the time. but i HATE when people spell whether...weather (as in the thing outside..the temp..snow..rain..things of that nature..lol)

whatever...there wasn't a damn thing wrong with this movie and if you wanted the damn book WHOLE then read it. that's why movies are called ADAPTIONS!!!!

hell they are even starting to bitch about new moon and it's not out yet! wtf?! i thought wrestling fans were bad? they don't have shit on these anal twilight fans from hell! Laughing

Tam you're funny! Iit's a shame Twilight can' t win man...poor New Moon i didn't think it was possible for a movie to already have terrible reviews and hasn't even been made yet!

for the record...Peter Facineli in the movie...very pale and very hott! I don't give a shit what people say!

Well we've not got the movie yet but reading that made me laugh! it's more like 20 stupid reasons repeated! And why on earth is she moaning about being able to tell they're using wires etc and then say movies are expensive!!!
At least try and make the reasons undestandable!!!

I stopped at ten..... it does tell about the characters background..... the main ones anyway. and some of the background information doesn't come out until the other books. Some people are so stupid.

I thought Carlies hair was to light or the make up to bright (not his fault).... But he did an awesome job.

The only thing that I sorta agree with, is 2. The lines were cute in the book, but corny and forced in the movie. I cannot STAND the way Edward said the brand of herion quote in the clearing, it did seem sorta forced, IMO. Other than that, the list seems pretty stupid.

EXACTLY! If they were to have put every single detail of the book into the movie.....it would easily have been 5 times as long. I personally think the movie did a great job of covering the basics of the story.
