Water for Elephants! HOLY CRAP!!

Today, Best Husband Ever and I went to see it.

I was weeping from about 2 minutes in. It was SO beautiful. And the lovely thing is that when it ended, BHE even said "Wow. I really enjoyed that."

I'm so pleased at how much they stuck to the book. I will be posting a review on Rob Cures All very soon... but I just have to say that this was DEFINITELY my highlight today. Absolutely perfect....

Interview with the vampire!! - Friday 22 April 2011

My lovely Twin Cathy and I - co-bloggers of The Daily Twimes - got an exclusive interview with Guri Weinberg who plays Stefan in The Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn (Part 2)

Photo credit to Noel Fisher

We chatted with him on Skype and it was really great fun! You can read the interview in full (with VERY few edits!!) Right...

Tweeting With Celebrities!!

So, just before Nashville, my very good friend Steph tweeted from our NashCon twitter account to Guri Weinberg (who is playing Stefan in Breaking Dawn) to say hi and that we were looking forward to seeing him at NashCon. I then also tweeted to say hi and that I was travelling from the UK to the con and was looking forward to seeing him.

He tweeted us both back, which was pretty cool!! He remembered me when I got to Nashville, and has tweeted with me again since we all got home! Awesome.

ALSO he is now following both me and Cathy and our super-cool blog the Daily Twimes. (I would say we are co-admins, but she does WAY more work than me!)



Then yesterday and today we also tweeted (twittered? twat?) with Noel Fisher (who is playing Vladimir)  and then today a brief exchange with Patrick Brennan (playing Liam)

We are getting to know these Breaking Dawn vamps!! We may be in luck by the time November 2012 rolls around!!!

Water For Elephants Trailer number 2

I am RIDICULOUSLY excited for this film (if only to see Rob acting with another woman again!! LOL!) But in all seriousness, Water for Elephants looks so amazingly beautiful.... I just seriously cannot wait.

Plus it has Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz AND a gorgeous elephant in it as well as Rob, so it can't NOT be good!

Anyway, it's out May bank holiday weekend over here, so looking forward to THAT :-)

Here.... this almost killed me tonight:

The Moment I Met Robert Pattinson

Literally! On film!!! Someone was recording it and my wonderful wonderful friend found it!!!! I am dying and just OMFG!!!

Footage from well over a year ago now!! To some it will mean nothing, but to all you true Twilighters and Team Rob fans out there, this few seconds in heaven will mean EVERYTHING!

I am the first person he comes running over to at around 1:50. You hear me saying "Oh my God" a LOT! Like a freak. Then I say thank you, and then like some complete tool, I ask for my pen back. (In my defense, I needed it for Taylor and Kristen to sign too!!) Anyway, also look out for me touching his arm a lot. Luckily the recording ends before I turn to my friend and say "Oh my God he smells fucking amazing!"

So. This is it. It's not much, but I cannot tear my eyes away!!

Thursday 20th January - Golden Globeness

First of all, Where the f*** did January go??? Not that I mind too much this year as it brings us one month closer to NashCon without even noticing!! But still!

Anyway this isn't Twi related really, except to say that I was watching because Twi Stars were in attendance!! But I just wanted to say what an absolute delight it was to see Michael Douglas at the Golden Globes. He looks so healthy and happy and it was lovely to hear him talking about how his cancer treatment had been successful. Just YEY!!! Made me so happy.

This pic doesn't do any of them (him, her OR the dress!) any justice!

Monday 17th January - Golden Globe Rob

Navy suit. Straight tie. Bronze hair. That smile. Usual goofiness! That is all.

Not exactly impressed that Ryan Seacrest didn't get an interview with him on E! before I went to bed after I stayed up until 1am to see it, but no harm no foul. Got to see them all this morning :-)

Delicious.

Friday 14th January - Am I a complete idiot???

I cannot believe I haven't mentioned THIS before....

Okay, so it's all down to scheduling, and it's all tentative etc.... etc.... but for all intents and purposes

JACKSON FREAKIN' RATHBONE IS GOING TO BE AT NASHCON!!!!

OMG.... being the PattzBone and all, there are only two Twilight men that I absolutely HAVE to meet. Already got one ticked off my list (though more than a few seconds in his presence would be nice next time!) so JACKSON??? Oh my god. I think I may just absolutely faint.

EVERY DAY!!! - UNF

Nuff said.

Thursday 13th January - Bus Poster Update!!

So... I have been upgraded. I am now no longer getting the small(er) tall thin poster from the bus. Brother-in-law is bringing me the poster that spans the entire length of the bus!!!!

Here is the (very) blurry picture he sent me:

IT HAS RILEY ON IT TOO!!! SQUEEEE!

I told BestHusbandEver. Thought I ought to warn him. Weirdly, he was absolutely fine about it!! Just wondering where I'm going to put it?!?!?

Answers and (helpful!) suggestions in the comments please!!!

Wednesday 12 January - God Bless The Brother In Law

I cannot tell Best Husband Ever this, otherwise he may divorce me and never speak to his brother ever again... and NO we did not have a sordid romp yesterday whilst husband was at work!!

No, what happened was, BIL came around to drop off our nephew's birthday party invite and as he was about to leave he said "Ooo, meant to say. I'm in the process of getting you the Eclipse advert from the side of the bus. The one with the guy on, this one *points to Edward on Eclipse DVD* It'll just need a jetwash and then it's good to go."

I was just like Oh My Fucking GOD!!!!

We're talking one the size of the upright one of Jacob here:


So... about 6 feet? COOL!!!

Thursday 6th January - #BestHusbandEver, Bless Him!!

I just received this email from Best Husband Ever. The thing is, he pretends he doesn't like Twilight, he tuts and sighs and complains to other people about my Rob obsession even though he is very tolerant of it (and everyone knows this!) and then he does stuff like this....:

From: BestHusbandEver [mailto:XXXXXXX@hotmail.com]
Sent: 06 January 2011 11:54
To: Em
Subject: I know I'll regret this but...........


Just scanning Imdb and have come across a "6 degrees of" type thing.

Looking at Inception, the cast list features the woman than the bloke turned into in the hotel lobby. She is just listed as "Blonde" but is an british actress called Talulah Riley.

It said she has been in a short film on 2008 called "The Summer House". Its a little film - but look it up and see who she stars with.......

Thought you'd be interested.......

X

Bless him. I emailed him back along the lines of "Is it bad that I don't need to look up the film as I already know who's in it and I have it on my iPhone from MONTHS ago? But I love you for pointing it out."

Because I do.

Wednesday 29th December - BLU RAY!!

Finally, I am amongst the PS3 owners of this world, and can play Blu-Rays!! It doesn't matter how much something claims to "upscale your DVDs", it's not the same, but now I not only own a Blu-Ray PLAYER I own Eclipse on Blu-Ray too!!! (OMG *hyperventilates*) so I will be watching high definition Robward very soon!!

I will also be buying by "Story so far" steelbook on Blu-Ray seeing as nobody got me it for Christmas and I forgot to order it for myself (as I'm an idiot!)

Friday 10th December - Advent NOT Calendar

So I've got  myself (what I thought was) an Eclipse Advent calendar to open along with my daughters' In The Night Garden one.... give myself a chocolate a day!!

I was a few days late getting it because we were snowed in (no comments on the snow - Grrrrr) and when I looked at I realised there were no numbers on the doors!?? WTF?

I was a bit confused. I tweeted about it and the response I got was as follows:

"@ its bcoz its not really an advent calendar. S Meyer doesn't believe in advent apparently"


So clearly I'm not the only one who has queried this! There are no numbers on the doors, because our venerable Ms Meyer doesn't believe in Advent. Hmmm.


On closer inspection, it doesn't say "Advent" anywhere on it!! It just says "Milk Chocolate Hearts". I feel a bit cheated, I don't mind saying.

8th December 2010 - Extended / Deleted Scenes *SPOILERS*

I never can quite figure out why these few seconds extra can't be added to the film... but then I guess I'm looking at it from a book-reader's POV rather than a movie-goer's....

However.... here's my take on them:

Deleted
It's Not Life Or Death:
So this is Angela and Bella are discussing Jacob and Edward, and Angela is putting the human element on the boys - jealousy. I remember it in the book, and I think it's a great scene, but I don't think the film loses anything with it not being there.

I Can't Wait To See What You're Going To Do Next
This is Charlie talking to Bella after she receives her diploma, talking about how proud he is of her and how she will understand when she gets older and has kids. It would have been great to leave it in there to really drive home that Bella isn't going to have any of those things (as far as people who haven't read the books know)

Extended
Just Keep The Window Closed
As much as I love this little scene, it doesn't upset me that it was left out. For the book readers among you, you'll know which scene this is!

From Now On I'm Switzerland
It bugs me altogether that they left out the "mythical creatures" part of this line in the movie and it's not in the extended scene either. Grrr. However, there is some actual physical tugging of Bella between Jacob and Edward which I think makes how torn she feels between them very real. I like this scene.

Someone's Creating An Army
Took me a while to figure out what was extended here!! But it's Bella saying "Ooo we should change me now then!" and then everyone saying no and the various reasons why not. Which we all knew about. Not a detraction I guess. Interesting fact though, David Slade's commentary on this scene said that originally they shot a flash of Alice and Edward working for Aro (as in what they would look like if they had gone to work for him if all the Cullens were dead) Now THAT I would like to see!

Bella I Envy You
AHA! Now THIS I wanted to see in the movie. It is all of about 4 seconds, but it's Vera with Rosalie and her curly haired boy Henry. Very important (to me at any rate) to see Rosalie's best friend and the thing she wants most, right before we see Royce perving all over Vera in the street. David Slade did say though that to see Rosalie with a baby was confusing though - and I can see that for people who haven't read the books that yes, as Rosalie IS holding Henry, that can be confusing... Why didn't they have Vera holding her child????

What Did I Say About A Low Profile?
Literally all I can tell that is different about this is that Riley says "Do you understand?" twice for emphasis. It doesn't seem to make any difference to the scene at all, so makes no difference to me either?! Is it bad that I can't tell the difference?!

Jacob's Thoughts Are Pretty Loud
A very important scene here. For example, I think it would have made Best Husband Ever think a little differently about Edward... instead of him saying "MAN! I can't believe he just let her get away with that!" when Bella kissed Jacob (willingly!) he would perhaps have understood why he did it. Just that one extra sentence I think makes all the difference. "When I left, I left you bleeding, and Jacob stitched you up. It's left its mark on both of you. And that's my fault"

8th December 2010 - Robsten Commentary

So having watched the whole film last night with Best Husband Ever, I then set about watching it all again, this time with the Robert/Kristen commentary on (by the way, this is the ONLY time I will refer to them as Robsten!)

I laughed so much I'm surprised I didn't pee myself!! It made the movie last about twice as long as normal because I kept rewinding bits and here are some of my favourite parts:


Scene: Jacob comes to warn Edward
Rob: I just don’t get your decision making process to leave here.  I didn’t even understand it at the time. So they kinda break up immediately. It’s like “Please, please don’t leave, please” Then it’s like “SHUT UP! I’m gonna go with this guy who wants to cheat, who wants to sleep with me” or whatever. I just said the wrong word! For kids “ He wants to hold my hand!”

Scene (Cullen House discussing Riley’s break in)
Rob: We only have two enemies. (in character) It can’t be Victoria, no way. NO WAY!
Kristen: Maybe it’s the Volturi.
Rob: It can’t be the Volturi either. WHO IS IT????
Kristen: (in character) It can’t be the Volturi!

Scene: Jacob coming to carry Bella up the mountain
Rob: I was reading Breaking Dawn. You just give him so much hassle. All the time.
Kristen: Okay we can’t do this again. Seriously.
Rob: I feel really sorry for him. I remember saying this at the premier and I was talking to people afterwards and just going like, you know, it’s like the most depressing story in the world. You got this little guy coming around with his shirt off all the time. It’s like it’s so close to reality and then there’s always some punk who wants to get up in your business all the time.
Kristen: What are you talking about?
Rob: What are you talking about?
Kristen: How does this relate to your reality?
Rob: And girls can never understand, literally you can only talk to guys about it cos girls never get it. Cos the girl’s like: (in a fake girl voice) “Why? I should be able to do whatever I want!”
Kristen: *laughing*
Rob: And the guy’s like “But I’m in love with you, you’re supposed to, like, respect that. You can’t just keep going off with a naked guy all the time.” If I started hanging out with girls with their boobs out all the time then she just would not like it.
Kristen: *laughs*
Rob*giggles* BOOOOBS!

Scene: Edward waiting on mountain while Jacob carries Bella
Rob: That little tiny section, tiny sentence, SECOND of standing on that mountain took so long in filming at like three o’clock in the morning and there was a bear, which walked onto the set. It was so amazing. A massive grizzly bear. This mountain.
Kristen: Are you sure it was a grizzly bear?
Rob: Yep.
Kristen: Dang.
Rob: And er... Oh maybe it was a brown bear,  I have no idea. I don’t know what the difference is.
Kristen: But you were sure it was a grizzly bear.
Rob: Yes! *laughs*

Scene: Bella faces Edward after kissing Jake
Kristen: It’s too bad that he can’t hear what’s going on in her head, because then it really would be okay.
Rob: No it would not! That’s what girls always think! They always think that - you’re judged on your actions.

One thing I was interested in, was the bit where they were watching the bonfire scene and Kristen said that originally she was playing the part of the third wife in the flashback sequence. That would have been interesting to see. And she also said that they did originally film the scene where Bella imagines her and Jacob old and grey.

I was disappointed not to see either of these in the deleted/extended scenes.

It's here, it's here!!

I got tired of waiting for the pre-ordered DVD to arrive, so I went to town today (yes that's right - the roads ARE clear enough to get into town, so the post office should be able to get the post to us - little *insert favourite insult here*)

Anyway, I am now the proud owner of one Eclipse 2-disc special edition DVD, have sensibly decided to add the Story So Far Steelbook to my Christmas wish list (since I actually did forget to order that! DUR!) and have tonight watched Eclipse once with Best Husband Ever - whose opinion of Eclipse Edward was quite detrimental!! - and am now watching it again with the Rob Pattinson/Kristen Stewart commentary on.

If you do not usually watch with commentaries, then first of all, watch the Twilight audio commentary. You WILL laugh. Then watch this. It is truly hilarious!!!

It's not over yet either, so I'm off to finish it now!

British "Beef"

That's right..... I'm having a beef.

WHERE'S MY DVD???? Snow is causing all sorts of problems, not least that there is no post being delivered here...

I just want to watch it now... I'm hearing great things about the "making of"!!

Thursday 2nd December - DAILY TWIMES!

Right...

So I'm the world's worst blog updater. You should know I've totally bitten off more than I can chew, by starting up like four blogs, a Facebook page, and various other things as well as having only just moved back home after renovations... and now snow is taking over GRRRRR.... (or should I say Brrrrrr!)

Anyway, the Twilight of my day today is that my very good friend Cat, in the US, has invited me to be co-contributor on her blog The Daily Twimes so you will DEFINITELY find me over there!! (Although still probably at irregular intervals!)

Still.... wanted to keep you in the loop and apologise for being so shit!!

Tuesday 9th November - Eclipse Special VCD Preview (Exclusive to Sugar)

This came with the Sugar magazine I bought the other day. I am intrigued as to whether it contains anything I haven't already seen (bearing in mind that I'm not exactly the foremost authority. I've never seen EVERYTHING!!!)

So I'm kinda watching and typing as I go...

First up, the original theatrical trailers. Nothing exclusive so far.

Next up, Bree featurette. Yep. Seen it.

The "I kissed Bella" clip. Hmmm....

I'm seeing a pattern here. It's all the pre-released stuff from before the film got released. Teaser clips, etc. Why am I suckered in to getting crap?? Mind you it's nice to have it all in once place rather than just watching it all on YouTube right? RIGHT????

Awww shit.

Friday 5th November - Cheap twilight Make-up! Woo hoo!!

First of all, sorry for the extreme delay and lack of posts. I have had/am having a very busy time with work and sometimes - just sometimes ;-) - real life has to come first.

Anyway, walking through my local supermarket today I see in my peripheral vision as usual something Twilight and have to buy it. Luckily today it is only a very cheap something in the form of teenager girls' magazine Sugar, but still.... (at least having children, I can feign buying it for my older daughter/niece!)

It states to have an unseen footage DVD/VCD of Eclipse - more on that when I've watched it - but inside the Ladmag portion of it, there is a full page staying 20% off Twilight beauty products.

If you live in the UK this will be perfect for you - go for it!! If you're in the US you may not be able to use it, but it's worth a try right?

Anyway, got to http://simplebeauty.co.uk and enter the discount code SUGAR at the checkout to redeem your 20% discount. Oooo I am off to go shopping!!

Saturday 30th October - Random stuff with Rob

Don't you just love it when you're watching something that has a Twilight star in it (particularly Rob in my case or Jackson!) and you have no clue what is going on, but you just have to watch it!

Here's a video which has to do with some tradition at Taft, which is a private school in western Connecticut, and the film has has Rob in it looking.... well, a little scruffy (but of course still gorgeous!) and I watched it and I laughed but I have absolutely no idea what it's all about.



Clearly I wasn't the only one.... see the comments on YouTube!

(Thanks to KateCCG for pointing this out to me!)

Tuesday 26th October - I Gotta Golden Ticket!

So ET4 is barely over and now I am already getting SO excited about NashCon!! Today my lovely darling Betsy (one of the wonderful TwilightMOMS I will be getting to meet) did the block booking for our Gold passes and we are all sitting together on the second row in the centre!!! SOOOOOOOOOO cool and very exciting!

Got a hotel and flights to book now.... but the countdown is on. 134 days!!!!

Monday 25th October - Post-Con Comedown

OMG... I am absolutely friggin' knackered.

I will be back with a report, but right now, I'm just checking in!! Sooooo tired!! GAH!

Sunday 24th October - Fan Fail!

I will post this on Twitter no doubt so everyone will hear about it, and once the photos are uploaded you will see exactly what I mean... but at ET4 with Charlie this weekend (Charlie was one of two surprise guests after a million people dropped out) I paid to have a photoshoot with him as did pretty much all of the people who had come.

Charlie is notorious at making every single one of his photos completely individual, which is great - nobody has the same photo of him, but also this time, some of them were kinda strange, he was covering up people's faces and all sorts!! - so anyway, I had absolutely NO idea what to do this time. I have two great pictures with him from ET3, like a really lovely one and a kind of fun one, so I was thinking of the comedy element a bit.

I'm STILL thinking about it as it gets to my turn in the queue. I notice he has a dogtag chain around his neck. So I walk up to him, grab the chain, pull on it whilst kinda sneering at him, Charlie is pulling this kind of puzzled face at me and the guy takes the photo!

It doesn't sound that bad. What was bad is that I DIDN'T SAY A SINGLE WORD THE WHOLE TIME.

It is absolutely no wonder Charlie's face looks the way it does on the picture! He's probably thinking "Who is this crazy silent woman???" I didn't say "hi", or "how are you" or - and this one REALLY bugs me - "thank you" because if anyone deserves a thank you for a memorable photoshoot, it's Charlie.

I have no idea what was going on! I'm laughing about it now. People I've told say it's not a fail it's a WIN! And that Charlie needed a bit of karma for the crazy shit he was doing to some other fans!! But still...

This will all be a LOT funnier when I've got the photo up.

Tuesday 19th October - 3 days to go!!!

ET4 is almost here!!

I don't know how much I've said already about this? If I haven't or you're in the UK and you're wondering how it works, here's the details on the convention.

http://www.massiveevents.co.uk/eternaltwilight/

It is run by Massive Events and Showmasters who do not only do conventions for Twilight, they cover a lot of other TV shows and films so you might want to have a look, and see if you can find your favourite!

Some of my friends that are going are NuttyMadam (aka Emma) who you may already know from her youtube page or her twitter, also Vicki and Sarah from the amazing Team Pattinson UK of which I am a dedicated (but not ever-present Orbette!!) and a few people who I met at the last one. AND I'm bringing someone who has never been to a convention before so that should be loads of fun.

YEY!!! BRING IT ON!

(Oh man. Did I really just type that??)

Tuesday 19th October - They're HERE!

And they're beautiful. Although, red edges + white covers = bleeding. I had to wipe a lot of red off my covers, but they look SO good.

And this is technically my first paperback copy of Breaking Dawn too so it's quite weird to see!!

Anyway, long story short. I love them. Now to keep them safe until my cabinet comes.

Saturday 16th October - Birthday Goodies!!

A big thank you to my friends across the pond who sent me lovely cards for my birthday!! SO lovely to receive them! Twilight related of course! AND there was a little something in there too about the Black Dagger Brotherhood... now IF you haven't heard of them, then I suggest you go, read, enjoy now. The books are fantastic... different vampire lore from Twilight, but also a hell of a lot sexier (PHEW!)

http://www.jrward.com/bdb/index.html Here's the author's official website. Be wary of spoilers.

Also, a massive thank you to my family and friends who gave me money to put towards my trip to NashCon next year!! I already have money put aside for the flights to the US and for my ticket to the actual convention, but I was given enough money to pay for my hotel so that's great too! Just got internal flights and spending to save for now!

Friday 15th October - Twilight ROOM!!

Have I mentioned I have the Best Husband Ever??? We were down out are (still being renovated *sigh*) house and whilst discussing new furniture in our spare room, I asked if I could have - and he said yes - an extra bookshelf for all my Twilight stuff! YEY!!! He's so lovely.

Tuesday, 12 October 2010
