Alright there is something you guys don't realize about Twilight. And I know I'm not the
most popular person of this club cause I have completely different views then you guys but
you don't realize that there's a difference between bad acting and bad directing. There
are bad actors that I question how they even got that part but in Twilight the actors
aren't bad. I've seen Kristen Stewart(Bella) play in other movies and she's not a shitty
actress. The directors pretty much told her to stand there and not do anything. They
pretty much told her to forget everything she knew about acting. See most of you are not
interested in film or really pay attention to acting and directing and film making in
general. Bad acting would be if that person never really became a different character
ever. In any film. They were themselves. Also, they don't react to anything and its too
obvious that they are pretending. In the film industry it has to look real to draw people
in. Bad directing is when they take good, talented actors and make them look like shit in
the movie. I mean if ya got new actors for Twilight it doesn't mean it would be any better
cause you have to do it the directors way. Take Johnny Depp for example.

Yes he's gorgeous and he plays Jack Sparrow and a bunch of other major parts like a pro.
He plays eccentric characters and plays it his own way. Especially if its a remake of a
movie. He doesn't want to play the character too much like the character from the original
movie. He's a great actor. But in real life he is one of the shyest people ever and he's
so quiet. He's so unlike the characters he plays. Now imagine him playing as Edward
Cullen. Yeah I know more people would be interested in the Twilight movies because Johnny
Depp is well known and obsessed over by every teenage girl in America(Well as far as I
know xD) but it doesn't mean Twilight will get any better. The Twilight movies will always
suck no matter who plays the characters. I don't know what the director was thinking when
he made it and I don't even know how its popular but I feel as though girls obsess over
whatever is popular at that moment whether they like it or not. Teenage girls don't really
have a mind of their own. They do whatever everyone else is doing. Me? Yeah I'm a teenage
girl but I do the exact opposite of what everyone is doing. In middle school everyone
owned a Twilight book and me and my best friend Katie were the only girls in our entire
school who did not own or read a Twilight book and we were not interested in ever reading
it. The ironic part is we were the most obsessed over vampires.

I agree because i have seen robert pattenson in harry potter and i totally fell in love
with him but for twilight it was just terrible dirrecting. I want to see kristen stewert
in snow white and the hunter.

Yeah. When i saw Speak, Kristin Stewart was OK but I either thought that because the only
other movie I've seen her in is in Twilight or because.... well in Speak she is a
depressed teenage girl with no emotion or friends so I guess in a way Kristin Stewart
played her alright. I preferred the book though. Like there are some movies where they
could have picked better actors. Cause believe it or not, there are crappy actors. I mean
it works when your making a comedy like Scrubs or Workaholics where people just do stupid
shit and theres no real story line to things like that. Yeah there will be a motivation
for the episode or some kind of 'dun dun dun' moment and they have to solve something or
whatever but in movies like that crappy actors are OK and they should stick to
shows/movies like that because if they attempted to do this really big film and sucked at
it people will hate on it. But the actors are not always at fault. Very rarely are they at
fault for being sucky in a film. Its mostly the choreographer, screen writer, producer,
directer, etc. at fault. The actors don't edit the film. They don't write the
play/movie/show whatever. They don't direct it. They don't produce it. They are just there
to make it happen. If the directer chose crappy actors he's at fault. There are 100s of
other people who could do it better then them yet he chose that crappy actor. The actors
do what they are told and cannot argue because that's not their job.

Too true.
I just read speak. I love laurie halse anderson. I am going to get speak signed by her
this saturday. Cant wait!
Although i did like stephanie meyer's underworld series. Twilight was a total bummer i was
really upset by it. Both the movies and books.

Yeah. What happened though? She turned her badass werewolves into pussy werewolves and
her badass vampires into pussy vampires. What happened? How does that work?

What pisses me off are these actors who are so stuck up that it makes me wanna punch them
in the face. They think their so cool cause their daddy payed the directer for her to play
in some stupid film and most of the time they suck yet the actor would pick that actress
to play the part cause she will be well known and people would be willing to watch the
film with actors they know rather than unknown actors.

Exactly, thats why i loved hunger games because most of the actors were unknown. You
would only really have known that the actress for katniss was also the shapeshifter for
X-men, if you were a true nerd. Like me ^_^

In underworld she didnt have vamires and werewolfs. She had badass underground people,
huge bats, huge cocroaches, and awesomly evil rats. I was supprised when i was told that
the same author who wrote underworld, wrote twilight. It made no possible sense.

Oh.... then I think were thinking of two completely different Underworlds. I didn't think
she wrote Underworld before it became a very popular and badass movie but I never really
read the series.


I am excited for City of Bones to come out August of 2013. 
 Thats pretty
much what he looks like in the book

<---- Jamie Campbell Bower is playing Jace in the movie. I can see him as Jace. And
apparently Jamie is British. I can also see Jace as a British dude. He just has that look
of sexiness. I never really thought about what kind of accent he has though.

Probs xD I'm checking out casting actors to play characters in Mortal Instruments. Right
now I'm checking out the gay couple in the series: Magnus and Alec. It was so cute when
Alec finally stopped hiding the fact he was gay, grabbed Magnus and made out with him in
the middle of a crowded area. Everyone looked over and their mouths all dropped. His
parents were shocked but were happy that their son was happy.

Johnny Depp. I'm not like every girl in High School but you can't hate on Johnny. He's
just too perfect and I just want to cuddle him.

LMFAO!!!! My Dungeon Master(Dm) absolutely loves Lord of the Rings and video games and
role playing games so we just randomly talk about random nerd stuff together after were
done playing. I love Skyrim but I'm on a Skyrim break. I didn't have my computer for a bit
and I played Skyrim non stop(except for pee breaks and sleepy time) for three days
straight and started having Skyrim dreams and they were really trippy and freaky. They
were like my role play dreams but not. I was literally my Khajit and because I'm a
werewolf in the game I was a werewolf in my dream and I was all badass and whatnot. It was
kinda awesome and I was sad to wake up. Sunday I was just like "maybe I should take a
shower cause I haven't showered in three days." And the worst part was I was wearing the
same thing for 3 days straight. Thats what happens to gamers.
