Fake Teaser Poster

You have to cheack out this link about these fake New Moon posters. They are actually really good and the story is funny.

Alex Meraz to join Wolf Pack

Alex Meraz along with four other Native American actors were cast last week to join the wolf pack. I have to say I find him to be one of the more...intriguing...choices. I hear he will play Paul but I am not sure how accurate that is. Apparently he likes to take racy pictures with his pregnant wife....I suggest that anyone with a little extra time type his name into Google Images. :)

Jamie Campbell-Bower Cast as Volturi Leader Caius

Breaking news today that actor Jamie Campbell-Bower was cast to play one of the most powerful vampires in the Twilight series and leader of the Volturi, Caius. Now, I don't know about you guys but after looking at photos of this feminine man I have to say that he is totally NOT what I pictured Caius to look like. I do not remember the way he is described in the book and I mean to go back and look to see what Meyer wrote. Maybe after reading that section again I will change my mind and say "Gee golly, he is swell for the part!" The only other movie I have ever seen this guy in was Sweeny Todd and I remember thinking he was pretty girly in that. I would be interested to know what people who have read the series more recently think of this choice in thespian.

"Flittering" Images of Edward Cullen in New Moon?

Warning: The following blog contains spoilers to anyone who has yet to read New Moon While on my daily Twilight hunt for new information I came across an interesting article at the examiner.com by Amanda Bell where she reports on demands being made of fans for the upcoming New Moon (set to release Nov. 20th of 2009). Apparently, fans are desperate for as much Edward screen time as possible. If the movie is to stay true to the book then he really won't be in there much at all. This of course allows for Bella's relationship with Jacob to grow. Twilighters of the Edward persuasion are suggesting "flittering" images of Edward to be show throughout the movie presented in hallucinations or memories of Bella. While this would be very pleasing eye candy one has to acknowledge that part of the journey of New Moon is living through Bella vicariously and suffering the loss of Edward. Were they to show these "flitttering" images would that soften the pain of being without him and throw off the whole feel of the book's original flow, or would this just be a nice way to allow die-hard Rob fans a few extra giggles and joys? Personally I say let us suffer. Leave us thirsting for Edward's return. That way when he does it will be that much sweeter. I would like to know what other people think so please comment }:[

Was it inevitable?

I suppose it was inevitable. I didn't even know what a "blog" was for the longest time. I assumed it was some type of infectious disease so whenever I heard the phrase "I have a blog" I would tend to avoid the conversation. People who know me well know that I am a movie fanatic and avid reader. I can usually knock out a 300 page book every day or two. I have for some time now been toying with the idea of writing reviews on movies and books I have (or have not) enjoyed. So, when my friend Stacey suggested I start a blog I thought "why not?". My plan is to get on here after I read a book or watch a movie and write down my thoughts on it. Generally in the past I have not been very reliable on following through on these sorts of things but I figure there is no harm in attempting to do so. Or is there? You never know...I might write about a few personal things occasionally too. :)
