Twilight was better than it had any right to be.

Movie!Edward is way better than book!Edward, too. The whole "I sparkle omg" reveal in the movie is better, and the Cullens may spend too much time with their grease paint, but they're totally a fun group of people. Doc Cullen was bouncy. Hilarious! All the scenes with just Edward and Bella were impossibly horrible, but when anyone else was around, the movie was surprisingly watchable. Seeing it in a theatre full of squealing teenage girls? Priceless.

Also, the Epic Thunderstorm Baseball Scene is a montage set to "Supermassive Black Hole". I don't know what spaceships melting in the dead of night have to do with vampires, but I'll go with it. I leaned over to [livejournal.com profile] nevalent after I'd finished chair dancing and suggested that the better Muse song for Twilight would be "Stockholm Syndrome". There is, however, something perfect about a falsetto croon of "Oh baby I'm a fool for you" applied to Edward Cullen.

After Twilight, we went for the double bill and saw the Swedish vampire movie Let The Right One In. It was by far the better film: low-budget indie, darkly funny and casually gory. Speaking of Stockholm, heh.

clearly the kids have something in common interests....tree stabbing seems fun.

Ending scene was awesome..especially with the sneakers being dragged across the pool.

I think I laughed most at the frozen-in-ice guy getting hoisted to the coroner's van. Way to make the most of awkward moments, movie. :D

Unified socialpaths whooot.. Acutally most of the audience members inside the theatre were laughing during that scene.

More rules for the drinking game...

- Take a sip for each stutter Bella utters when speaking to Edward.

- Drink whenever anyone mentions Google or is seen Googling.

- Take two drinks whenever Jasper looks constipated (one for each pie eye).

- Take a drink when an obviously fake film treatment is used to indicate an event happening in the past or in a fantasy.

- Shotgun a beer in celebration whenever drinking buddies Charlie and Billy share the screen ('cause that's the best this movie has to offer).

- Drink the entire duration of every moony-eyed stare Bella and Edward share.

Using these rules, if you can actually make it to the end of this movie without having to be rushed to hospital for severe alcohol poisoning, then you should be seriously concerned about your liver health.

Ye gods. I don't think I'd make it out of the first 15 minutes with those rules.

The trailer actually looked decent, but those few minutes of the audio book I listened to put me off the whole idea.

The books aren't good, but they're addictive. The movie is worth a rental, if anything.

I am biased, though: I've been a teenaged girl who liked vampires, so I came to this looking for things to like.

There are Swedish vampire movies? Why have I not known about this before???

So good! Though it's a bit horrible when the vampire is trying to be all evil and the cadence of Swedish speech just drags me off to "bork bork bork" land. Still - a very good movie. Where Twilight was about teenagers, Let the Right One In starred a few 12-year-olds.

I think you'd really, really like it. It's been in theatres here about a month, but it's been in and out of European festivals since January. Imdb's no help on when it may hit Japan. Poo.

We can't be friends anymore.

I'm going to ignore everything else you said, and just say that vampires are like the spaceships OF THE HEART.

I am a simple child, with simple tastes.

I said to my mom yesterday that I like robots only just a bit more than I like film noir. Upon reflection, I think vampires are a close third.

"But Vic Fangtaine had never been afraid of a little water... as long as it wasn't holy."

When I finish my film noir about a vampire detective in a city full of robots, I will dedicate it to you.

Rust, however, was a constant enemy

The creeping sort, the kind that would sneak up behind you and freeze your rotors if you weren't keeping up with regular maintenance checks.

Much appreciated. I look forward to the day.

As long as you understand that absolutely none of my vast riches will be given to you, just dedication. Dedication and, POSSIBLY, grand overseership of any slash fic fanclubs. Fangclubs?

You know I -have- to write this now.
From: [identity profile] naturelf.livejournal.com
I shall accept the dedication and perhaps 0.1% of some slice of some worldwide gross. Perhaps. We shall negotiate.

You so have to write it. And make it not just Moonlight-with-robots, though that would also be quite entertaining.

Don't say I never give you nothin'.

I might write more some other time, but it's a hard thing channeling hardboiled vampire detectives as they battle the nefarious robocorps.

Seriously, though. High-fives for you. :D

It's all for you, toots.

I've already been told that I should run with it. There might be a radio drama.
