    'Warm Bodies' and the 'Twilight' Factor

    We’ve passed the point where adapting young adult novels has become a simple trend in cinema, so pointing out the increase in proliferation of YA movie adaptations since 2008 is something of a pointless exercise. Of course YA has won its own cinematic categorization and earned the boon of increased cultural prominence; the success of Twilight alone justifies its ascendance, which started as a slow burn before recently erupting with a massive slate of releases for 2013 (notably: Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments, The Host, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Percy Jackson & the Sea of Monsters) and beyond (Vampire Academy, The Night Circus, Matched, and of course further installments in…

    G-S-T Review…The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2

    Brace yourselves Twilight fans, it all comes down to this. No more brooding, no more long awkward affectionate stares or lip-biting. This final installment gives fans the climactic showdown between the Cullens and Volturi they’ve been patiently waiting for (well, kind of). Suffice to say nothing in the series has been more thrilling or satisfying than this. This final installment also finds Bella, with baby in tow, joining the Cullen clan in the way she believed herself born to live, as a full on vampire. There’s less focus on Bella’s former life (sorry fans no Anna Kendrick and co here) as the story moved with long strides to meet, head on, the Volturi…

    Trailer…'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2'

    Every saga has its end, and aside from Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film, Twilight’s sunset is imminent (let’s forget about the reboot rumors for now shall we). Likened to Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and the final Harry Potter film, apparently there was just too much juicy brooding and lip biting in the Breaking Dawn book that it needed to be told in two parts. So here we are with the first full trailer for the second half of the last Twilight film…did I go too fast for anyone? Behold, Edward, Bella and Jacob’s final hurrah. In this film, Bella and Edward’s daughter Renesmee is misidentified as an “immortal child” which leads the Cullens…

    Teaser Trailer…'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2'

    Today we get the teaser trailer for the last chapter in the Twilight Saga. No this isn’t that preview of the teaser for the teaser, this is a full on 50 second teaser…don’t really see the point of those teaser previews, but anyway. So it all comes down to this as Bella is now a vampire, has a child (Renesmee) and holds the fate of the vampire kind in her new sparkly hands…or something like that. Behold… Renesmee is misidentified as an “immortal child” which leads the Cullens gather other vampire clans from around the world to stand as witnesses and prove to the Volturi that Bella’s daughter is not an immortal child. Doesn’t sound incredibly exciting…

    Twilight Breaks Dawn In Dallas

    On Wednesday evening, four members of the insanely popular Twilight franchise touched down here in Dallas as part of a 5 city press tour. Partaking in all the Twi-hard fun was the one and only Mrs. Go,See,Talk who was one of the few people who won a contest to meet the visiting stars Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene and Charlie Bewley at the event here in town. I thought it would be a little fun to have her write her experience (not as a correspondent mind you, but a star struck fan) so have a look at her recap of her fun but all to brief star-studded night after the jump…

    Trailer…'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I'

    Not long ago we posted the very first teaser for the final film in the Twilight Saga (well Part I anyway). As Mrs. Go,See,Talk is a rabid fan (still short of being a Twi-hard though) this is really for her. Hmm, between Edward and Elvis she seems to have this strange fascination with dead guys…Anyway, for your brooding enjoyment here is the official trailer for The Twilight Saga’s Breaking Dawn – Part I:   Past the first film (which I was surprised it wasn’t the total nose dive I was expecting) the series for me had been about as cold as the Cullens themselves. But as I’ve been told the…

    G-S-T Top 10 – Actors Unable to Escape Their Characters

    This Top 10 goes out to all the talented actors out there who just don’t get a fair shake in Hollywood. Sure, many celebrities on this list have made obscene fortunes on their respective cinematic personalities, and are capable thespians. But success does have its downside; namely the inability for the actor in question to get a sufficient role or body of work to help distance them from such a solid, iconic, memorable or even annoying character. Now, to be fair, some of the actors on this list are very talented performers. Yet all their efforts fall by the wayside due to one singular role (or roles) that very nearly define…

    Sweet (Shirtless) Trailer…'Breaking Dawn: Part I'

    Anyone watching the MTV Movie Awards (boy I still think that in itself is a major contradiction) this year was again helped to some major Twilight teasing. Like the clip of New Moon that was shown in 2009 and last year’s Eclipse trailer, this first real look at the Twilight Saga’s final chapter (well Part I at least) was unveiled much to the screaming delight of the Twihards. For those of you missed it, have a look. And when a better quality clip becomes available, we’ll repost it. I’m not going to lie, I like Twilight (the first one anyway). Also, I kind of have to as Mrs. GoSeeTalk is a fan.…

    Random film thought of the day…11.19.09

    With the release of the Twilight sequel New Moon next week, I must call out one of the stooopidest things about the whole silly series…and that would be the whole, “we don’t go out in sunlight…not because it’ll kill us (as it should) but we sparkle head to toe like diamonds“.  Sorry avid fans, that was not only a poor paraphrase, but also a knock against the love laden and contrived plot.  Now I admitted before I actually like the series but that’s just one thing that just gets more and more impossible to buy every time I see the movie. I have always held that Vampires were cool, not…
