Too Much Twilight to Take?: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″

Breaking Dawn 2No joke. I’m writing this in the computer room cause I don’t want to go back in front of the TV. I want it over, but I need a break. I feel like Rocky getting his ass beat by Clubber in Rocky III. I hadn’t expected these movies would be THIS bad. “He’s strong, he’s too strong…”

I’ve been at this for twelve hours now. TWELVE hours of watching “Twilight”. Whose idea was this anyways? I need to punch someone, but I think it’s me, and I’ve been punched enough today.

Everything is flagging. Towards the end of that last post, I realized I wasn’t even making jokes anymore, I was just summarizing what was going on. I’m seriously dragging myself across the finish line now.

This was a poorly conceived idea, I doubt anyone is still reading along – why the hell would they? Who wants to? What kind of dumb ass would think people would?

But I’m finishing God dammit. I’m finishing… not gonna quit NOW, that would really be dumb. So in I go! One last ^$%&ing Twilight piece of crap to sludge through, let’s get this over with.

Too Much Twilight to Take?: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″

Breaking DawnAlright. Little breather. No joke, this is getting tough. Watching these crappy ass movies, blogging as fast as I can… feeling a little drained here, and I still have two movies left.

My worst fears about these movies have come true. They are neither good nor so bad they’re good (though they do contain relatively frequent, blessed, laughable moments). Bella Swan is a modern-day Helen of Troy, launching a war between vampires, and between werewolves and vampires. She causes two supernatural creatures to fight for her hand, and one sparkly, spineless vampire boy to question his sexual orientation.

WILL anything happen in this movie? WILL Edward man up and take Bella up on the half-dozen offers she’s given him? WILL Taylor Lautner win his war against the oppression of shirts once and for all?

Let’s see. I’m ready, let’s do it, it’s back on! Breaking Dawn, yeah!!! Here we go!

Too Much Twilight To Take?: “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”

TS EclipseTurn around…

Every now and then
I get a little bit lonely
And you’re never coming round

Turn around…

Every now and then
I get a little bit tired
Of listening to the sound of my tears

Oh. Sorry. Ok. Ready to start another Twilight movie. I’m not gonna lie, this is a challenge. The first two were some putrid stuff. But I’m gonna do it baby! Here we go, Eclipse!! Who’s with me? Lets go!

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!

Read on!

Here we go… Twiiiiiiiiiliiiiiiiight!

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!

Too Much Twilight to Take?

Since I started this blog in June, I’ve made every effort to hit at least the biggest release of each week and post up a review before the weekend was over.

This weekend, though, the biggest new release will be “Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ and I wanted to briefly explain why I won’t be reviewing it, and get my plans on the record here.

I’ve never seen a “Twilight” movie. Pre-blog, I used to watch a ton of movies but I had options… if something didn’t appeal to me, I just didn’t go. (I could still do that now of course, but you know what I’m saying). As these films obviously weren’t for me, I stayed away. Simple as that.

Now that I’m blogging though, I do feel a little bad for not “Scouting this out” for people, but I also feel like I need to fill that gaping hole in my pop culture/movie knowledge. So the idea came to me a while back (some of you may have seen this already) to fill that knowledge gap AND have a shameless stunt for the sake of the blog, both at the same time.

All five “Twilight” movies – the entire saga – in one day.
