Everything started with a book called Twilight, followed by the other three and at the end we were all addicted and devoted. We read all about Bella and Edward’s epic love and at the same time we fell in love with Edward. *sigh*
Then came the movie and the hysteria increased a bit more. I tell you here and now I’ve seen the movie at least 8 times, maybe even more but I somehow stopped counting… I know most of the lines and quotes by heart and love to “quote – battle” them around. Sounds like a teenie? Well, yes – sometimes I think I went back in age during all this here…
Tons of people don't like the movie, but others - like me - clearly love it. What makes the movie for some people so lovely and for others so bad? Why are some of us totally happy with the movie while other ones are disappointed? Is the movie so much different from the book? In addition, is it really a bad thing or did we simply expect too much? While thinking about all this, an idea pooped up in my mind.
Why not discussing the book vs. the movie? Yeah, Why not?
A few weeks ago I send a desperate mail to my TwiFF Betti to ask for her help. I realized soon that this would be just too much to handle alone. Unfortunately, Betti is really a busy woman and couldn’t find the time for this, but she said that Artsie or Fanny would assuredly help me out. (You may ask who the f** are Artsie and Fanny? Meet them at Betti.Music.Twilight! ) Anyway, I discussed with both of them to see which one would be the better choice for this epic task.
Fanny is a really sweet and cute girl totally devoted to Twilight; Artsie however lacks all enthusiasm about it. She doesn’t even like the book *snorts*. The choice was rather easy, since we will have to spend quite some time together and I also want to have some fun …
Fanny is totally excited about our project and she promised me some “Fanny- special” (whatever that means…). To make things easier she will come over here to my place for the next weeks. I guess, Artsie was a wee bit pissed that Fanny will have all the fun of guest posting alone. Moreover, we don't want to have a pissed and bored Artsie for such a long time. That's why Betti and me thought abut some …uhm… tasks for Artsie while Fanny is gone. Read all about this at Betti.Music.Twilight! Every time Fanny and me will post an Movie vs Book discussion, Artsie will post some of her… challenges.
*claps hands* we will have tons of fun, I'm sure!
Coming back to what we are planning! Fanny and me thought about a schedule and this is how we worked it out:
We will divide the movie into four parts and post the fruits of our labors Wednesdays. (I wanted to go with three, but uhm Fanny is so freaking excited, sometimes even excessive…) Although, I have to say I'm not sure if we can strictly stick to the schedule… you know Fanny, don't you?? If not, you will get to know her Wednesday and then you will know what I mean…
- October 07: Bella moves to Forks and we stop right before Bella is going to LaPush
- October 14: We will meet Bella and Jacob in LaPush and then we stop right after The Meadow scene.
- October 21: “About 3 things I'm absolutely positive…” until “ you brought a snack”
- October 28: Edward runs away with Bella and we are finally ending at the Prom!
- November 04: final remarks or things we forgot to discuss – or whatever, let's see ;)
I'd love to discuss these things with all of you and I really hope you step into this discussion, because I'm pretty sure you all have a lot to say about this topic, right? Moreover, we won't discriminate here, whatever you have to say, say out loud!
See you on Wednesday!
