Twilight: Breaking Dawn Pt2

Did you look at those reviews? They said if Avengers wasn't released, Twilight would have the best action finale of any movie this year.

I'll put it this way: The twilight movies biggest issue and it continues with this one is the horrible pacing. All the movies drag on and on for the first half to three quaters of the films. The movies need more arc and an arc that is longer. If these problems were to be solved, they'd probably be tolerable.

Only one of those says so, and, having read spoilers regarding that sequence, I call bull****. Amazing Spider-Man had a pretty good action climax, and while I haven't yet seen Skyfall, no way does any Pattinson action sequence beat any Craig one. :-P


I mean, not only does Edward not die, it's all a hallucination anyway. Fail! Smile

Gaith if I am going to see a special effects bonanza it doesn't really matter if

it was all a daydream. I have no vested interest in the plot of twilight, I just want to see a half hour of vampire decapitations.

Check out these interviews with Robert Pattinson

Wow, that video is awesome! I'd heard Pattinson wasn't nuts about the whole thing, but I didn't know he was that blase/funny about it. The bit about the contacts was great. :lol:


But he'll still never beat Craig in action. :-P

While it is kinda funny to see Pattinson not care about the series, someone I follow on Twitter shined a sobering light on this kind of thing:

Jesu Otaku Wrote:I'm not as ecstatic about this as most people because Pattinson does come off as a twat rather than a--less whiny hater, but it's still pretty hilarious. We agree with him, but you probably shouldn't agree with his attitude. Like the "hurr they probably didn't pay me enough" and lack of compliments for anyone in the cast sharing his plight...? Fuck you dude.


But his admission of the bad performance and the bad writing are great. XD Whether he should be saying it or not. Still: we give Shia Lebeouf no quarter for bitching about the bad movies he was in, blaming them on other people. Pattinson doing it is--not cool either, even if it is genuinely awful material. Nothing cool about being an immature prat when avoiding it is easy/you're rich.


I get that he *had* to be in the movies, even if he didn't want to, I get him being bitter...but there is a middle ground between--saying "this material is awful and this role is bullshit" and saying "man, fuck everything about these movies, people, everything." [I]t's not about [lying to satisfy] random strangers, it's about all of his coworkers/peers/potential employers/viewers who see that. You want career suicide, seeing an actor lambast the crew/cast on someone else's movie makes you not want to hire him in yours. It's fun for US to watch, but it's not laudable behavior. You should never imitate it. Granted, he has "fuck you" money, he could just--quit acting and live modestly and be fine, but if he wants to continue a career, what he's doing is immature. That's all I'm sayin.


Yeah yeah, it's nothing but funny for us, I don't know. I guess I'm looking at it from the perspective no one else is considering because--it's a very real one for him and it says to me that Pattinson is an immature prat who doesn't get when to keep his mouth shut. [Essentially,] he's winning the mild adulation of people who don't want to see him have a career. Connnnngrats, dude!


Unfortunately, this does include me. I've yet to see him impress as an actor, so I don't care what he does with his career. I only wanted to point out: In a professional entertainment position/situation...do not emulate...this man.

I dunno, I don't really side with your friends argument. It is clear he hates this series and what it represents in Hollywood. I can respect him for that. I am guessing the other actors on set don't share his disdain which alienates him. I think it is perfectly fine that he is a hater and part of the group mocking the series.

OR this is a clever marketing ploy. Pattinson mocks the series in the open so as to align with the haters and make them hate the series less, and even maybe go see it because they no longer hate him. The act serves to scare away 0 twihards but gain haters as viewers. Where is Conspiracy Keanu?

I bet this attitude impresses the smaller independent arthouse filmmakers that he would prefer to have roles with. If he wants a job with an uncompromising director like PT Anderson or Melnick the best thing he can do is denounce Twilight. Sure Michael Bay might not cast him, but it seems like that would probably be ok with him.

Nice, you get to see a great movie and then your GF has to watch a cool movie.

Uh... I sure do. :-P

Chances are his peers and coworkers feel the same way about the series. Maybe a few love the material, but do you really think the make-up people, the ADs, all the nuts and bolts crew of the thing give a crap about the books? I doubt it. Besides, that questions about who made the experience most rewarding was pretty obviously an attempt to get him to talk about Kristen, so by making faces and refusing to say anything, he was pretty cannily trolling her, IMO. And if his peers/coworkers need to watch publicity-circuit interviews to tell if they're friends with him... then they probably aren't anyway.

Not guilty, says I. Smile
