Twilight – How the Books Compare to Movies

July 8th, 2013

The Twilight series is arguably one of the most popular movie and book series in the country. It’s been all over the place from streaming and rental services like Netflix to popular vendors like SlackWare. Readers and viewers young and old have read or watched as the love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob played out. However, as with many series, there are some differences between the books and the movies.

The books and the movies are equally enjoyable, but as with all series, the Twilight movies leave out certain details that you will only get from reading the books. The Twilight books give a better impression of what Bella’s inner thoughts are despite the voice over in the movies. The plot is also more choppy in the movies than it is in the book. So if you are watching the movies without having read the books, there may be some points at which you might be confused.

Even though the movies do not follow the books word for word, they are extremely enjoyable. The special effects and attractive set of actors make the movies appealing to a variety of audiences. As with any movie adaptation, you may not be completely satisfied with how the cast matches up with the character descriptions from the book, but the actors accurately exemplify their characters’ personalities. In addition, while the movie does alter some minor plot points, these changes add to the enjoyment of watching the tension between Edward, Bella, and Jacob play out on the big screen.

In general, both the Twilight movies and books are extremely entertaining for a variety of audiences. While the books appear to flow better and the movies are not a completely accurate adaptation, you can easily sit down and have a good time with either version of this series.

Which Cullen Vampire Was Your Favorite.

May 25th, 2013

When it comes to Twilight, every body is focusing on which team they’re rooting for: Edward or Jacob. But let’s not forget the other vampires who rule the screen and books — the Cullen vampires! Let’s pretend Edward is out of the picture. Who would you choose between Jasper, Emmett and Carlisle?

Scouring through popular polls and quizzes involving the Cullen vampires, you might be surprised to find it’s Jasper who most people pick (outside of Edward, (more…)

Taylor Lautner’s Quest To Buff Up For The Role Of Jacob.

March 23rd, 2013

If anybody’s seen the “Twilight” movies, or even glanced at a commercial, it would have been impossible to miss Taylor Lautner’s famous and impeccable abs. Lautner plays Jacob in the series of movies, Bella Swan’s on-again, off-again love interest when Edward isn’t around. Lautner almost didn’t make it past the first movie, though. He begged to stay in the cast, promising he could get just as ripped as his character in the story. Clearly, he was (more…)

Should The Movies Have Detailed The Wolf Pack More.

June 23rd, 2012

With the huge success of the Twilight saga, the wolf pack in the films should have had a more dominant part to play. Many of the fans of Twilight actually come to love the wolf pack and the actors who play them. However, in the Twilight saga the pack seems to be an afterthought for much of the movie. They are only involved when they are needed for added suspense. In the book series, more details are known about the wolf pack along with why they are so (more…)

Would Someone Else Be A Better Edward Than Robert Pattison.

October 28th, 2011

In my opinion, no. I believe Pattinson was a great choice for this role mainly because he’s got that dark, shy side to him that you can see in every role he plays, and he has given vampires a new and fresh sexiness.
I recently took it upon myself to look up this question online, and one of the answers that I found right away didn’t really surprise me at all. People are saying that Paul Wesley (more…)

Forkes Washington Why Is It The Perfect Supernatural Backdrop.

October 13th, 2011

For die hard Twillight fans, the city of Forkes in Washington is really the perfect setting for the movie, and the dark and meadowy forecasts which the scenes entail. The city offers a great contrast in the forests, meadows, and even waterways which you have seen in your favorite series, and offers the perfect background for the gloomy overcast and tones of the film. The gloomy setting, overcast weather, and dark overtones are so due to the state’s temperate climate region, and where the city sits. Plus, being right by (more…)

Kristen Stewart Is She The Perfect Bella.

September 28th, 2011

The actress, Kristen Stewart has been receiving mixed reviews and opinions on if she makes for a perfect actress for Bella or not.
In all honesty, it seems as though many of her fans support Kristen as being the perfect actor to Bella Swan which extremely work in Kristen Stewart’s favor.
Other than Twilight, Kristen Stewart has also done quite a few other movies that have garnered her with even more attention including Panic Room, Zathura: A Space Adventure, Cold Creek Manor, Jumper and The Runaways.

Edward or Jacob? It’s up to you!

November 16th, 2010

For the first time in saga history, Twilight fans will finally have an answer to the epic Team Edward vs. Team Jacob debate uncontrolled by Bella Swan, or, in a more literal interpretation, Stephanie Meyer. In fact, the decision is up to you, as the 37th People’s Choice Awards, the award show decided by voter response, has pitted Robert Pattinson against Taylor Lautner in the very same category. Like Bella’s affection, both young stars have had a People’s Choice Award well within their grasp, with Lautner taking home the “Favorite Breakout Movie Actor” title last year, and the duo, alongside cast mate Kristen Stewart, winning the “Favorite On Screen Team” title. Pattinson was nominated for the prestigious “Favorite Movie Actor” award a year ago, but lost out to Johnny Depp in a field that also included Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds.This year, Lautner steps up to the elite level joining Pattinson among the “Favorite Movie Actor” nominees, as they will both also face stiff competition in the form of returning champion Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Downey Jr. A proverbial who’s-who of heartthrobs, it remains to be seen whether Titanic flashbacks, the world’s sexiest swashbuckler or Iron Man himself can steal votes away from Team Jacob or Team Edward devotees, splitting sacred allegiances towards one side or the other. After all, every Twilight girl has a favorite between the two, but let’s be honest, the entire category is can’t-miss, boiling to the decision down to far more than brooding vs. brawny. (more…)

Whatever Happened to Midnight Sun?

August 17th, 2010

Any true and dedicated fan should know the story behind Midnight Sun, but for those of you who’ve somehow missed it, we’ll give you a brief recap. After Breaking Dawn, the final book in the Twilight saga was released, Stephanie Meyer was working on a new project to retell the whole story from Edward’s perspective. The first of these books was called Midnight Sun. Sometime in the summer of 2008, an unfinished manuscript was illegally leaked onto the Internet, to the dismay of the author and excitement of many fans. On her official website, Stephanie Meyer posted somewhat of a rant about the ways this leak had violated her as a person and an author and questioned whether she could continue writing. In the post the claims to have concluded that her fans have a right to read what is posted and the partial draft is now available on the website, but the novel is on hold indefinitely. Having read it myself, Midnight Sun is definitely worth the read and should be continued. Though it is the exact same story, changing the perspective adds an entirely new dimension and allows us to better understand how the love between Edward and Bella came to be. (more…)
