Twilight in Greece


So, there are still some of us who haven't seen the movie in theaters, because it hasn't been released yet in our countries.
Unfortunately, living in Greece make me one of them *snifs*

Because I know that most of my fellow Greek-Twilighters "watch" the Twilight news from American sites (we still don't have a decent greek one), where it's quite hard to find news about the movie in Greece, I decided to sum up some of the most important things Greek fans should know.

First of all, the movie premiere will be on January the 1st, not the 8th as it was announced some time ago.

Odeon (the company who distributes the movie) has set up a site with the basics, you can visit it here: www.twilightthemovie.gr
And you can participate in a competition here: http://www.twilightthemovie.gr/contest/ The first 10 will win a copy of the book translated in Greek (wish that you will not be on the first 10 *lol*), the next 10 a copy of the soundtrack (that's what we're talking about!), and the last 100 will get a poster of the movie.

If you want to keep an eye on the dates and hours you can watch the movie, once it gets released, you can visit this page: http://www.odeon.gr/movieportal/GR/moviedetails/cinema.soon.do?movieId=16000008&dmnu=0 (this link will propably change in a week or so, cause the movie is in the "coming soon" section for now)

And the best one for the end!
Public stores (www.public.gr) offer a double ticket for the Twilight avant premiere which is on 30/12/08 to the first ones who will buy 2 products with the "Vampire Label".

Twilight shines in UK reviews

A follow-up to the post of ceramicpiece on the quite excellent UK reviews of Twilight.

The film was released last month in the US, and didn't fare too well with the critics. It stood at a Rotten 45% on the Tomatometer, with the critics feeling that it didn't live up to the source material, and many bemoaning the chemistry (or lack of) between Bella and Edward, played by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. But, perhaps due to the more muted level of popularity of the source material here in blighty, the UK critics have really fallen for Twilight. From the 20 reviews collated today, only one review came in unfavourably, and even The Sun's critic The Sneak admitted that the film was "A superior high school romance, which looks set to live on after the sun has set on Hogwarts." So with UK reviews only Twilight would stand at a much more respectable (and Fresh) 95% on the Tomatometer. Critics swooned over the breathless romance and dark but well-meaning tone, meaning that Twilight may just be the hit of the winter season with Will Lawrence from Empire saying "A sometimes girlie swirl of obsession that will delight fans, this faithful adaptation is after teenage blood, and will most likely hit a box office artery."

Full article here, from Rotten Tomatoes: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/twilight/news/1787184/uk_critics_consensus_twilight_shines_in_the_uk_reviews

***
This is the issue with anything that's been subjected to so much hype: it almost inevitably fails to live up to expectations, and therefore somewhat disappoints (*coughBDcough*). Where there are less or no expectations (as in the UK, so the essay surmises), perhaps there are more open minds and greater acceptance? But given that Twilight is out, methinks New Moon and the rest of the sequels can no longer escape the even more heightened hype and scrutiny, and the expectation that Weitz and cast improve on the flaws of the first. So it's pretty hopeless to keep one's expectations at bay...bring on New Moon!

Anyway, I posted this because I'm glad more reviewers liked the film. I sincerely liked it myself.

Twilight in UK cinemas

I was just wondering what the atmosphere was like for everyone else in the UK cinemas. Personally my cinema was packed, however I was the only person to say that I wanted to be Kristen in the kiss. Despite that a lot of people screamed, a lot of the time (Apart from a boring group of adults who just HAD to be sitting in front of me and my friends and kept on telling us to shut up).

So, what was it like for everyone else?

The Search For Myself - Ch 12 - Permanent




Story: The Search For Myself : Edward & Bella
Update: Chapter 12 - Permanent
Rated: T for now for cursing, mainly [Mature later for sexual content]
General Spoilers: None aware of

Story Breakdown: What if Bella and Edward's roles were reversed, leaving Bella the Vampire and Edward the Human? As predicaments change and situations become harder, will their fate still be destined or will unexpected plans change their lives... forever?

Chapter Breakdown: The meadow scene at first, as requested. But this chapter is very unexpected, and drags you along the emotions as Bella struggles with herself to fight the urgency of wanting his blood.

Chapter Spoiler/Sneak Peek:
I knew I shouldn't trust myself with him.
If I lost control now, my emotions could take ahold of me and I could snap, willing or unwilling, and it could be all over.

For him.

For me.

A good percentage of me told me to lay back because I wanted this sooo damn badly and to go with that desire, but the smaller -- yet more demanding -- part of me told me to get the hell away from him. Now.

Japanese promotion for Twilight (books and movie)

I just stumbled across these two sites. Both are dedicated to Twilight and both are in Japanese. The first one is a homepage about the Twilight saga with two wallpapers that might be interesting even to those who can't speak Japanese (both have Edward and Bella as drawn in the Japanese illustrations on it).

http://www.twilight-saga.jp/

The second site is the official Japanese movie site. If some of us thought we have to wait extremely long for the movie (I still have to wait until the 16th of January)... we were wrong XD Japan will get the movie on April 4th 2009(!) with the official title "Twilight - first love". For the time being, there is a nice little site.

To finish this post nicely, I'm also posting the official Japanese movie poster, although it's a bit small. :)

UK Press Reviews for Twlight have been excellent

As someone posted on IMDB the UK reviewers seem to like the film a lot.  Whether its the serious broadsheet newspapers, the more commercial ones or even the UK film sites. They all seem to have embraced the film and understand where it fits into the scheme of things.  The film has been getting a lot of 4 stars and even from the most hard to please reviewers.  I'm pleased but very surprised to be honest. Even the sarkiest online geeky film sites have a regard for it. The Radio 1 review adored Rob - really gushed about him.

Quote:
Sweet, sticky, flagrantly hormonal, Twilight is that rare thing, a bona fide guilty pleasure. Will I be able to resist the sequel? God damn my soul to hell, I suspect not.

Even the SUN says:

Stewart and Pattinson are a quite mesmerising pair, and their twitchy, sidelong glances play out a duet of unspoken yearning that might just get under your skin.

The Daily Mail gives it 4 stars and usually Chris Tookey gives a turkey to most films. His review is a bit coolish but - 4 bloody stars! a miracle.
