SOTL: Quid pro quo

(no subject)


Best known for her adolescence drama 'Thirteen,' she knew how young fans adored the book series.

Catherine Hardwicke knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed on to direct the big-screen adaptation of " Twilight," the first installment in author Stephenie Meyer's bestselling young adult franchise about everygirl Bella Swan and her vampire beau Edward Cullen. The filmmaker had turned up to see the author on an L.A.-area stop on her 2007 book tour and witnessed firsthand the near hysteria the books inspire among legions of largely young, largely female readers.

All Meyer had to do was say the name "Edward," Hardwicke said, and the room would erupt in screams.

Rob on Edward -- What do you say? "Hi, I'm the ideal guy?"

I was late for work this morning because I was watching the Today Show. I love how awkward Rob and Kristen are during interviews; I'm pretty sure that I would be the same way. Anyway, some of Rob and Kristen's responses to the questions Meredith asked, as well as the answers of the fans, made me stop and go, "Hmmm."

So let me ask all of you: Why do you really like Edward? I refuse to believe that it is because "he is so hot" or because loving him "is wrong." I thought it was really interesting that when Rob asked the fans why they loved Edward so much, they could not give him a solid answer. Sure, he is hot, and okay, loving a vampire isn't ideal, but what is it about him that everyone clings onto? What is it that makes you overlook the fact that he is possessive, controlling, and at times, mildly abusive? I am not hating on Edward at all, I'm just wanting a little character discussion.

Do you think that Edward is portrayed as "the ideal being" as Rob said or that he "is small inside" but strong on the surface as Kristen said? I beg to differ on both counts and thought it was kind of insulting to the character. I am sure there is much more to the character than that (and Midnight Sun pretty much confirms this, don't you think?). I think that Edward comes off as perfect in the book because he is seen through the eyes of the girl who loves him. Yes, he is beautiful, but aren't the rest of the Cullens beautiful, too? Aren't they "the ideal being" as well? Isn't that the point of SM's vampires? Does that make the other Cullens small inside or as indesirable of characters as Edward?

What do you guys think? Do you agree with Rob and Kristen's assessment of the character of Edward? Discuss.

For those of you going to a midnight showing somewhere...

I'm just curious about one thing. Personally, I plan on screaming a maximum of two times...once when the logo pops up and probably when Alice first pokes her little pixie head into view. I want to know how many times all of you will (or if you will at all!)

How many times will you scream during the movie?

I will not all.
Once when the lights go down/logo first appears
Twice when the logo appears and when Edward *insert other favorite character* first appears
1-5 times: i.e., character sighting, kiss, lullaby, baseball, fight
...I don't know how I got to this page..what is an RPattz??1! Is the K on that KStew silent?? It sounds foreign and not tasty like any stew I have ever heard of. I'M SCARED!! HALP!!!11!

Japanese Breaking Dawn illustrations! :D (+ more info about the rest of the books)

Thanks to rekcusho, I now have the scans of the first volume of the Japanese edition of Breaking Dawn, titled "Twilight 10: vampire no hanayome (the vampire bride)". The scans are a bit spoilerish, so if you haven't read Breaking Dawn yet, I'd recommend you not to look at them XD I can just say that I guessed fairly right which scenes were turned into illustrations ;)

~message from the mods~

We've been getting a lot of posts submitted into the queue the past couple of weeks, and due to the amount of press the movie/Rob and Kristen have been getting, we've been finding that the comm has been....overloaded so to say, sometimes with double posting or some spam. We can take the blame for some of this, but we really need you guys to help.

  • ALL FANWORKS not tagged correctly will be rejected (graphics, fanfiction, etc). It's really not hard to tag these correctly, so please, just do it right the first time.

  • Interviews/videos/articles for the other cast members/characters. = Rejection. GUYS, this comm is Edward/Bella. There are other communities for the other, and honestly? We don't want to come to lion_lamb and see "Taylor Lautner loves Jacob Black and thinks Kristen Stewart is hot." So unless they talk about R/K or E/B or bring up some NEW information on the movie in general, don't even bother submitting it.

  • Please go through the tags to see if something has already been posted. If you find a new source, but it has the same information as another source that was already posted....seriously, don't even. And starting an entry off like "I know this information has already been posted" certainly doesn't help either.

  • Posts about Robert and Kristen's personal life....NO. We'll allow the general paparazzi pictures, but in terms of any romantic relationship between the two or rumors going on about one or the other, no. Kristen has a boyfriend, and as far as we know, Rob is single. There are other communities that are more appropriate for these conversations, and honestly us mods are getting tired of having to tell people to stop bashing Michael. There's no reason to even bring him up. We're not trying to stop you from fangirling over them, but jeez, learn to control yourselves. There are boundaries, and Michael is one of them.

  • When posting an article/interview, remember to C&P at least a paragraph into your post before linking to the source. Two reasons. 1) To not do this, well that's just laziness and 2) We're all too lazy to go look for ourselves. :D

    Alright, so I'm just wondering since my situation has changed...

    are any of you going to this movie alone?

    My friend canceled, so, sadly, I'm going by myself. (I already bought a ticket that's non-refundable/changeable, so I'm pretty much stuck. I've also got a helluva flu.)

    Are any of you in my unfortunate position?

    Twilight Fans, This Is Your Future

    Twilight comes out this weekend, and the fans are looking even crazier than those Harry Potter kids who wanted to stage a massive protest when Warner Bros. pushed the release date of Half Blood Prince back eight months. Clearly there is something about fantastical movies intended for children that crushes minds.

    But it's important for these young, mentally unhinged Twilight fans to be fully aware of what they're getting into. Being into vampires as a 12-year-old girl is fine. Science says that it's a completely normal part of puberty. But if you don't grow out of this weird infantile obsession with paranormal dry-humping, then there is a much darker path that awaits you.

    Because an adult obsession with vampires, much like an adult obsession with anything, is alienating and uncomfortable for everyone. You can write Lindsay Robertson and Edward Cullen on your Trapper Keeper now, but eventually, if you do not move forward, that niche interest turns into this:

    You don't want this, do you? No one wants this. I'm even going to be nice and assume the guy who made this doesn't want it. Right, DJ Bobo?

    Robert Pattinson Teams Up with Tyra Banks

    Continuing along with his hectic promotional duties, Robert Pattinson from the buzz-stirring movie “Twilight” took to the streets of New York City for the ” Tyra Banks Show” on Thursday afternoon (November 20).

    Joining in on the fun was co-star Taylor Lautner, who accompanied Robert and Tyra as they filmed scenes outside of the show’s Big Apple studio locale.

    With so much attention coming from the soon-to-be-released flick, Pattinson says that he had no idea what he was getting into when he signed up to play the character Edward.

    According to AP reports, Pattinson says he thought it was going to be an independent film about vampires that wasn’t going to be a big deal - adding that it’s strange that everyone screams when he’s in the room with them, but no one recognizes him anywhere else.

    Kristen Stewart Drops By David Letterman

    While her co-star Robert Pattinson was busy chatting it up on the “Tyra Banks Show,” Kristen Stewart was spotted readying for an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” in New York City on Thursday evening (November 20). The 18-year-old rising star was on-hand promoting her brand new movie “Twilight” - a much-anticipated vampire flick opening up in theaters tomorrow (November 21).

    Meanwhile, Stewart, who plays Bella Swan in the book-based film, recently talked about how she thinks her co-star Pattinson is definitely “pretty sexy.” “Oh, he’s like a little tortured artist. He’s British. He’s tall,” Stewart told People magazine. “He always looks like he’s thinking about something. And he’s quite witty. So he’s pretty sexy.”

    Interview, Robert & Kristen

    Twilight: Interview with the vampire and his girlfriend

    The success of Twilight as a film will depend on young stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who will need to connect with fans of Stephenie Meyer's novel about teen love and vampires at a rural Washington state high school.

    Opening on Friday to a great deal of anticipation, the Catherine Hardwicke-directed film features Stewart as teenager Bella Swan, who's hopelessly attracted to vampire-in-denial Edward Cullen, played by Pattinson.

    Both actors appreciate the pressure that comes from fans of the wildly popular novel, but both refuse to let the expectations get to them. They have also chosen to ignore an ongoing online debate among book fans about the film's casting choices, although Stewart says she's aware some fanatics continue to be disgruntled over her winning the Bella part.

    ["Yeah, I planned it out for three," says Pattinson, smiling. "And they can't kill me off, because I'm immortal."]
