Fans of the show will have been hearing about our friend Rachel for a very long time. We frequently mention her as she’s one of our besties, and she’s even been on over Skype a couple times. But today is different. Rachel has flown all the way from Minnesota to hang out with us IRL for the weekend! With airfare as low as it is, even with the virus looming it seemed like too good a deal to pass up. So today she joins us for Twilight!
Kristin and Rachel are both long time fans of the books, Rachel in particular. Proud owner of a Mrs. Cullen t-shirt, Rachel was very excited when the movies were announced. Alas, the first Twilight movie was a pretty big disappointment for the fans. We’ll get into all the reasons why the movie doesn’t exactly work in this episode. But put simply, the movie has no chemistry at all. Between anyone. Supposedly this is a love for the ages, and there’s not even a spark between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (both of whom we love now).
So Twilight was completely lacking pretty much across the board. It has it’s moments; the baseball scene as well as any time Anna Kendrick is on screen. Unfortunately it just does NOT come together very well.
So what do you think? Are you a big Twilight stan or did the movies turn you off to the entire franchise? Let us know over on Twitter, or in the YouTube comments! And while you’re at it, don’t forget to like and subscribe over on YouTube as well. We’re really happy with our growth over there and we want to keep going! For now though, grab an apple and a bagful of hard boiled eggs for today’s glitter-fueled episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
