Too Much Twilight to Take?: “The Twilight Saga: New Moon”

New MoonNew mooooon…
You saw me watching, alo– oh. Sorry.

RIGHT BACK INTO IT! Doubling down! That’s right. Bring it on “Twilight”!

Here’s Stewart’s poetic voiceover to begin “New Moon”:

“These violent delights have violent ends.
And in their triumph, die.
Like Fire and Powder, which, as they kiss, consume.”

Do you think that that bit of awfulness will deter me from forging head? Hell, no!

Too Much Twilight to Take?: Prologue

TTT

Ok folks. Here we go. I’m about to embark on this… ridiculous stunt epic adventure.

We’re not off to a good start, I overslept by an hour or so in a show of procrastination and protest, but I’m doing it. I’m headin’ right in to start this puppy up. The next time I post here, I’ll have watched my first Twilight movie! Woot!

I did want to quickly say that although I welcome comments and discussion as always (of course), I wont be able to reply right away as I usually do. I’ll be occasionally checking them out as they come in, and circling back tomorrow to be sure I caught them all, but there’s no way I can reply as we go and still get through all five movies, plus an accompanying blog post, in one day! I’m sure you can understand.

Alright! That’s it. I’m going in! Wish me luck, and I’ll see you in a couple of hours with my first post of the day! :D

TTTTHUU2.

Announcing the “Too Much Twilight to Take?” Marathon

TTT

Hello folks.

Four months ago, due to the fact that I had never seen a “Twilight” film and thus wouldn’t be reviewing them in theatres, I announced that when “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ hit home video, I would sit down and watch all five of them in one day and live blog the experience. Well, that day has come, and I’m good to my word. Next Sunday, March 17th, I will be spending the day with Bella, Edward and Jacob, and sharing all the details with you for your reading pleasure. Five movies, five blog posts, one day.

Will I make it through? How long before I’m cursing my own stupidity for getting myself into this? What happens if I wind up getting into them?

As always, my pain will be your gain, so be sure to stop by next Sunday and read along!

The 2013 Winter Movie Season Preview

Winter

Ok, boys and girls. The Holiday Season is over… and the Spring Season, full of mini Blockbusters, is still months away.

Between now and then lies Hollywood’s dumping ground. The Hollywood fields lie fallow in the winter, bearing little quality product. It’s the two months of the year we need to “Get through”. While January typically offers some limited releases from the prior year going wide, there’s typically little else to get excited over.

Will this year be different? Are there any movies to get excited about these next two months? Let’s take a look at the release slate and see what we’ve got!

Happy Thanksgiving, and a heartfelt thank you from FMR

I wanted to take a quick minute to wish all of the visitors here a Happy Thanksgiving.

I hope your day is filled with food, family and football, and that everyone has a great time.

Today being a day to give thanks, I also wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who visits FMR. All of you have been so generous with your comments, and your help, and your time… it really means so much to me, and I wanted to express my gratitude. I put in a lot of work here, but everything I put in, I get back tenfold. It’s been an absolute joy, and a source of great pride to build this blog into the site it’s become. We really do have a fantastic movie discussion community here, and I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

So, as best I can express in type, THANK YOU.

Thank you for stopping by and reading, even if you don’t comment (love our lurkers, too! :D ). Thank you to everyone who helps spread the word with Facebook posts and reblogs and retweets, etc. Your help means a lot to me!! But most of all, thank you to everyone who posts their thoughts and opinions here via comments. I honestly look forward to hearing what you all will say every time I post a new post, and you never let me down. The feedback has been incredible, and at times, even a little overwhelming. It really does motivate me to keep going, and rewards all the effort I put in along the way.

So. Have a great day, eat too much, watch some football, and get home safe if you travel. We’ll be back talking about movies starting tomorrow!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

George Lucas sells Lucasfilm (and thus Star Wars) to Disney

I don’t often blog about movie news here at FMR.

But this is enormous news, and bears discussion. I feel as though I need to say something. This is an unimaginable story. Seriously… could anyone have imagined this prior to today?

George Lucas has sold Lucasfilm to the Disney for $4.05 billion. Disney has already announced their intention for a new Star Wars film (Episode VII) in 2015, and a new movie every two to three years after that.

I’ve been having trouble concentrating on anything else since I heard this news… I had to put something up right away, so that anyone who wanted to could discuss.
