The end was eventually here for Twilight and Breaking Dawn Part II was released last week with a very high number of viewers attending cinema screenings. Pretty much like the whole of the Twilight Saga, as you may know I was sucked in my the books and loved them up until half way into Breaking Dawn when I stopped reading.
The MTV Movie Awards are voted for by the public, but definitely a young group of people. It always seems to be battle of the fandoms on who will pick up the different awards. This year seemed to be know different as Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga all went head to head. I think some of the categories show quite a wide range of actors and performance types but at the end of the day it’s more of a popularity contest than anything else.
Elle Fanning – Super 8
Melissa McCarthy – Bridesmaids
Liam Hemsworth – The Hunger Games
Rooney Mara – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Shailene Woodley – The Descendants – WINNER
The beginning of the end for the Twilight Saga see’s the first part to Breaking Dawn released at the cinema. This one is a strange one for myself as I stopped reading the book halfway through . . .
A look back at the posters from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)
The fourth year at Hogwarts see’s the tri-wizard tournament take place, meaning two other wizarding schools come for a year. Some twists and turns see the usual tri-tournament having a fourth competitor in an underaged wizard taking part and yes you guessed it, Harry Potter is that wizard.
No contest at all it has to be Harry Potter. Twilight should not even be mentioned alongside Potter! They do of course have one person in common and that’s Robert Pattinson who has appeared in both franchises. Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga.
As these awards are voted for my the public I think it is pretty easy to guess who is going to win in each category. This year was dominated by The Twilight Saga, which I am pretty sure it has been for the last couple of years now.
BEST MOVIE WINNER
This is such a tough one as quite a lot of films out there which I didn’t particularly like but to have to have a least favorite film is difficult to choose. I have gone for Twilight as it was so disappointing after reading the book. It makes no sense whatsoever if you were not a fan of the book.
A second poster has been released for ‘Water for Elephants’ with more of Robert Pattinson than anyone else . . .
The first poster has been released for the up and coming film starring Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson and Christoph Waltz.
Well as usually I cannot come out of HMV with just one DVD . . . Obviously with Remember Me being released the Twilight films were not far away. I don’t even have Twilight on DVD I still have a friends copy, but when I saw the Jacob and Edward different covers on the New Moon DVDs I just had to buy the Jacob one. As I have always and will always be Team Jacob!!!
Yesterday saw the release of ‘Remember Me’ which I really enjoyed at the cinema. It actually helped show that Robert Pattinson can indeeed act as well which was a bonus. I headed to HMV to buy the DVD (it is very rare that I buy a DVD on release date now). But when I was standing looking at it, the Blu Ray version was only £5 more than the normal DVD, with the Blu Ray containing a normal DVD as well. So I went ahead and bought my first Blu Ray DVD – now all I need is a Blu Ray player . . .
Well a few hours ago I attended my first ever midnight screening of a film and it has to be said it was a very random and interesting experience. Mainly because of how many people were at the cinema for a few different screenings of the third part of the Twilight Saga, this being Eclipse. My cinema very rarely has films starting later than 9.30pm but this could be the start of more later screenings in my opinion because of the sheer volume of people in the cinema last night. Then coming out at 2am, any way onto the film. I had read the book quite a while back and probably liked it the best out of the series. Team Jacob for me.
I have been sent this article and exclusive pictures of Kristen Stewart! Enjoy!!!
Out of Focus: KRISTEN STEWART
The actress stars in a shocking new rock biopic, carving out a niche of respect after years of teenybopper fare.

A romantic drama centered on two new lovers: Tyler (Robert Pattinson), whose parents have split in the wake of his brother’s suicide, and Ally (Emilie de Ravin), who lives each day to the fullest since witnessing her mother’s murder. A film focused on many different types of relationships and how important they are in everyday life.
Being an actor and being attractive at the same time and in some cases being labelled a “pretty boy” can place a lot of extra pressure on the actor. After so long if they are not already showing brilliant acting roles they hit a point when their good looks no longer cut it in the world of film. This could be related to that if they are a young actor their “fan girls” grow up and they are still trying to do the same type of roles, this loses some of their fan base and its either show you can act or the work will dry up and you will slowly be forgotten about. But if they can act and show they can act what a career they will have!
Remember Me was released in the UK yesterday and I plan on seeing it very soon. From the trailer it actually does look like it will be pretty good. Will also be interesting to see Robert Pattinson not as Edward Cullen.
Not long after the teaser trailer was released here comes the first poster to have the characters on . . . is it just me or are all the film posters/trailers etc really looking the same?
The trailer was released a week or so ago for the 3rd part in The Twilight Saga . . . Eclipse. I actually liked this book the best out of them all as actually couldn’t put it down.
The awards which like to honour the worst films of the year! Yes its all just a bit of fun and to laugh at really. But the Razzie nominations were released last night, yes the day before the Oscar nominations are due out. Interesting as Sandra Bullock could end up as the best and worst actress of the year . . . you see what they have done there.
They even have worst movie, actor and actress of the decade awards to give out.
What do you make of the Razzies?
Check out the nominations
Remember Me is a new film starring Robert Pattinson which is coming out this year, can he move away from Edward Cullen? I guess we will have to see this to try and find out . . .
The second installment of what is now known as “The Twilight Saga” opened yesterday across the world in cinemas, and with my local cinema having 4 shows sold out at 11am, for the night-time showings this really is going to have some opening weekend taking across the UK. Reading mid-week that it has broken the records for most pre-ordered tickets for a movie.
The first part of the very popular Vampire novel’s made it to the big screen. With a lot of attention and fandom before it had even been filmed this was always going to be a hit. But how would those who have not read the books see the films?
