“Twi-Hard” has been nominated for the word of the year!

For those who known a staycation from an Obamanation and a tweet from a Twi-hard, this is one of the most exciting times of year….

Among Barrett’s nominations are Twi-hard (rhymes with “die hard” and describes a fan of Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling Twilight book series)

2008: Year of the Vampire

Apparently 2008 was the best year ever. Why? Because it was named the “Year of the Vampire” by Reuters. I wonder if Twilight had anything to do with it? Probably not. Not many people have heard of it… HA! 

No surprise to tween girls or their parents, the best-selling book was “Breaking Dawn,” also known as the fourth book in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga.

I wonder if that means ’09 will be year of the werewolf? Hmm… Perhaps. Read the full article HERE.



MTV’s Woman of the Year

MTV has just named their woman of the year: TWILIGHTERS. Well, I guess that could be women of the year, right? Yay for our awesomeness!

When Hollywood dismissed “Twilight” as a “one-quadrant” niche film, you responded by giving it a bigger opening than “WALL-E,” “Chronicles of Narnia” or “Star Wars: Episode 1.” When Harry Potter fans looked down their noses, you fired back by standing in midnight lines for hours to help “Breaking Dawn” rock the publishing industry. You took over Comic-Con, Westwood and the rest of the world. 

If you’re one of the millions of women who live and die by “Twilight,” please take a quick glance into the nearest mirror — because MTV News’ Woman of the Year is you.

Summit Officially Announce New Moon (& Box Office Details)

First up, Summit has officially announce that they WILL be doing New Moon! WOOT!!!

Yay! I know we all knew it was coming, but I am super excited! In fact, over Spring Break I may just take a trip over to Oregon! xD

22nov2008_162533-twilightUp next, we have some news about how hard Twilight has hit the box office!

Oh, it sucked alright…sucked the living daylights out of the box office. This was not trumped up hype, this was the real deal–deafening buzz and now with a box office cache to match. Summit Entertainment has shocked the industry, as Twilight grossed $35 million Friday ($7 million in midnight sneaks) and is on its way to sucking down $75 million or more when all is said and done. You think little girls are full of sugar and spice and everything nice, now? This is a sintilating debut and a rousing victory for Summit. Welcome to the big leagues! Prognosticators were split on this film across the board, guessing an opening anywhere from $30 million to $70 million: this tops even the highest projections I’ve seen. On Monday morning, no doubt we’ll know the release date of the sequel…

I am so excited! Make sure to tell your friends to go see the movie! [source]



Twilight at Midnight

n1681890129_94381_4456

<– Me at the premiere. I was a lamb and my best friend was a lion. :] Speaking of the premiere, I have a few (ha! few…) things to say. Guys, I had an amazing time last night!!! Or, this morning… actually. It was soooo good! Really, truely superb! I may be a little bias, but it really was a wonderful movie!

So, my little group got there around 9.30 – I had come straight from a play at my school that I was helping out with. Anyways, so we get there and we are THIRD in line! Yeah, third!!! We were sooo happy because a little later everyone started flooding in. We waited and waited (me BAIRLY containing my excitement; seriously I was flipping out) and finally they came out and opened the doors. The theater of Twilighters I was with was amazing. No one ran in or pushed or shoved or anything. They all walked in calmly and took their seats. Then we waited longer while the previews were going on. Finally, the lights dimmed and the final previews were showing. As soon as the lights dimmed, everyone cheered! ONLY 10 MINUTES LEFT! 

But, really, the Twilighters were so amazing. When the Harry Potter preview came on (which looks amazing) everyone clapped. See? We can all be civil! Then, the giant Summit logo thing came on and the movie began. Luckily, no one screamed inappropriately during the movie! They were all very well behaved. There were a bunch of laughs, silent squeals, loud gasps (which were funny because when we got a close up of Edward, the whole theater took a deep breath), and cheers at the right time! So, whoever was in the Snowden Theater in Columbia in the 2nd theater, thanks for being so awesome!

I’m not going to give away anything in the movie, but I do want to say that Charlie and Billy were amazing. This, I was not expecting quite as much since they are smaller characters. But, they really evolved. And, I just absolutely love Charlie!! Kristen and Rob had such great chemistry together. They were the perfect Edward-Bella, no matter what anyone says! Through the entire movie I kept getting goosebumps and had to squeal quietly (silently, actually, which is why my throat hurts so much) because of how smoldering their relationship was! Though I wish it could be longer, it still had everything I needed it to have. I know it was two hours, and that’s probably the longest others would watch it, but I would have spent all night there. :]

For those of you who are unsatisfied, just remember: This was an adaptation. It is not supposed to be exactly like the book. Movies are never precisely like the book. Every detail in that book would not be able to be squeezed into the movie and still be amazing. Also, think about their budget. It wasn’t that big! So they did like a super job! (Lol. Super…) 

My advice: Go see the movie. Don’t go on opinions from other people. You don’t think the same as them. For example, one girl that went with me was not extremely happy, though she still really liked it. One person could  hate it while to you it is the best movie in the world! Plus, if no one sees it, there will never be sequels. And we all want to see the movies to bring the books to life! Encourage others to read the book first, though. It is a little difficult to understand everything if you didn’t read the book. Also, you miss out on a few details.

And another question I’ve been getting emailed a lot: WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE SCENE? Hmm… two, actually. The first one as the ballet studio scene. It was soooo glorious! It is EXACTLY how I imagined it in the movie! Cam was perfect for James and same with everyone! Carlisle was sooo awesome and when Edward had to suck the venom out… OH LORD! Just really, really amazing. But, my all time favorite scene had to be the baseball scene. It kicked butt!!! BIG TIME! They all looked so great playing baseball and Alice had the cutest pitch (you’ll see what I mean). I am in love with Emmett and Carlisle is a great baseball player! It was fantastic! And, the music was “Suppermassive Black Hole” so it made the scene like a bajillion times cooler! Gosh, I loved it!!

And, my opinion on the movie:
It. Was. AMAZING!!! (Beyond words)
