Whether you're a die-hard Twilight fan, or being dragged there by your friends, this movie premiere is sure to be a unique event with all kinds of people packing the aisles. In order to prepare you, here's a handy guide of the 8 people you'll find at the Breaking Dawn showing this weekend.
I will admit that Abe Lincoln seems pretty badass in this movie, much more so than what I learned about him in high school. But, knowing what (little) I know about Abe, it's kind of weird to imagine him as a vampire hunter.
On Wednesday, I sat down after a long day of work, classes, and caffeine to find the only thing that could turn my day around waiting for me. My Glamour magazine had arrived. Eagerly, I sat down to indulge in some horoscope reading and horror story retelling. But before I even reached the cover story on Fergie I was sidetracked by something else entirely.
I firmly believe that every article about the Twilight series should come with an author disclaimer (especially those found on the Internet). So here goes mine: I am not a Twilight fanatic. I read the first book back when it came out and enjoyed it. I read the first five pages of the second book and it bored me so much that I could not finish anymore of it. When the first movie came out, a few friends and I went to see it, but everyone in the theater was laughing because it was pretty corny.
Today, for the third time, Twilight fans are camping outside of movie premiers, gripping their pre-purchased tickets, and kissing their Jacob Black posters before they prance to the premiere of Eclipse. Eclipse is the third (and best, in my opinion) installment of the Twilight saga. Why is Eclipse the best portion of the saga? Two words: vampires vs. werewolves. Want more?
We all place a large emphasis on our dorm room decor. And we should; how we live says a lot about us to everyone who passes through. And what's sending the biggest message? The poster. People can learn a lot about you from what you hang on the wall and college students know it, which explains the abundance of poster sales that invade the student center every season.
I'm going to say that my Saturday Read for this week has to be one of the most interesting and unique to date. Okay, okay - anything to do with "Twilight" totally screams boy-crazy tweens. I'll admit, I've read all four of the books. And perhaps I enjoyed them. They are good if you consider what you're reading and expect entertainment and not a literary masterpiece.
If we’ve learned anything from this whole Tiger Woods debacle, it’s that some women simply can’t resist the glory of sleeping with a celebrity. And who can really blame them? You put Chase Crawford in front of me and there’s no telling what I would do in order to get him undressed and into my bed. And if it takes heavy drugs and a blindfold, so be it.
When I was waiting outside of the Scholastic store in Soho to buy the 7th Harry Potter book, I saw a reporter from the New York Post who was walking up and down the massive line and interviewing people for a story about the book’s release. I overheard him speaking with one guy who had a lightning bolt scar on his head.
When I read the first, crisp page of Twilight, I became a Twihard. Now, don't get the wrong idea. I don't think I'm a vampire, nor do I think I'm a clumsy, modern damsel in distress who will be rescued by a strong, fanged man. Okay, the clumsy part is true, but I digress.
Considering today is Halloween (finally on a weekend!), I was in the mood for something supernatural this week. Of course, you first think of the blockbusters: Twilight, The Historian, maybe even a classic like Frankenstein. But, I decided to go with something a little less mainstream. Something darker and more of a true horror novel.
It seems that whenever the trailer for a much-anticipated movie is released (i.e. the Twilight sequel), fanboys and girls feel the need to record themselves watching it for the first time. Watching someone watching something else...why?
