Twilight Week!

It's finally Twilight week...and if you are a fan, I hope you understand what this means!

I have a copy of the soundtrack at my house, and I must say, I think it's worth checking out if you are wondering about buying the album. I love most of the songs and even found a new favorite from a band I knew of before....to fill you in on the loveliness of this, here is a video that simply plays the song.

"Spotlight" by Mute Math (twilight mix, I believe)

Okay...I gotta ask....what do you think of the actor they chose to play Edward? I'm hoping the movie turns out better than the advertisement posters because I'm not crazy about his picture in those. Hope you post a review of the movie when you see it because I probably won't see it (2 kids, you know), so I'll be relying on the rest of you out there to tell me all about it!

@Michele: Hopefully you don't mind my opinion.

Have you ever heard of Into the Wild? Well, the person who played the main character totally throw off the "Edward aura". Literally. I was ranting to my friend why he couldn't be Edward. Then this girl came up and I thought she would be perfect as Bella. LOL! Apparently she already is! They had a quick romantic like scene and it screams Bella and Edward. I actually thought it's pretty cute. I might love it more if I'm not against Twilight so much.

So I'm pretty mad at the producers for choosing who they chose as Edward... (I forgot his name, sorry. o-o ))

Michele: I actaully like him. He was Cedric in Harry Potter, so at first...I was bit like "what? idk..." but i've gotten used to him and I think he'll do a good job.
I know I saw this interview where Rob (edward) said he didn't even think the posters looked like him..and i can see what he means.
And yes, I'll post a review HOPEFULLY on Friday, b/c I'm going to see the movie on Thursday at Midnight.

diana: Yep, Kristen Stewart was in Into the Wild and she is Bella. I definitely think she's bella worthy!!

And Edward is played by Robert Pattinson. ;-)

I'm so excited about the movie!! I'll definantly be at a midnight showing Thursday I can't wait.

I'm going to get the soundtrack as soon as I can I heard that it had some great songs.

Actually, I am disappointed that Kristen is playing Bella. Haha, I know. It was only that moment for Into the Wild that I think she is well suited because the main actor was throwing off the whole Edward/Jacob aura while I was watching it and she just happens to pop up.

A little selfish of me to say but I was hoping Bella to be prettier. (No bombarding me with the fact Bella is a normal girl! I figure as much but if you get asked out by three different guys on the first day, you have to throw in a bit of appearance!)

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Alea: I really love the soundtrack, and I knowww. I'm so pumped.

Oh, thanks for the meme. I'll try and do it later! :)

Elaina: Definitely. Paramore has two great ones, and I love Linkin Park and Muse...and of course the one I posted by Mute Math.
Yay for going to the midnight show!!!

Diana Dang: hahah I always thought Bella was prettier, but I think it has something to do with her being new and all the guys just love that, you know? So i think she IS supposed to be average...and I think Kristen is very average pretty. Sorry you don't like the main characters though!!!

Anyone you liked?
