Heres another random story for you.

Taylor had some problems with wearing his wig.

Now I was watching Twilight earlier and anyone else think the wig was just a bit strange? It kinda looked like he was wearing a headband.

Well, looking at the picture above it looks like he has his hair behind his ear. But still, luckily he cuts it all off.

Even though Edward Cullen captured Bella Swan’s heart in Twilight, here are the reasons I think that Jacob Black is a better match for her.

1. He’s tall, dark and handsome. Unlike Edward Cullen, his complexion isn’t the same color as “Plaster of Paris.”

Even though Edward Cullen’s skin glitters like diamonds in the sunlight, his aversion to the sun would likely put a rift in any relationship.

Did I mention that Jacob Black has perfect teeth?

2. Jacob has Bella’s best interest at heart. Bella and Jacob have known each other since they were small children, so he cares more about her than Edward does.

3. Edward’s family is still a bunch of vampires. If you think it’s hard to be a human vegetarian, imagine how difficult it is to be a vegetarian vampire. The very scent of blood could be enough to turn Bella into a dinner feast – in fact, Edward had a difficult time pulling away when he had to remove James’ venom in Twilight, so she should be concerned about being turned into eats.

4. Edward is always trying to pull away. Let’s face it. Relationships can be a real pain in the butt, especially if the object of your affection
is always trying to push you away. Bella deserves more than just a broken heart.

5. Werewolves are cooler. They have better eyesight, hearing and can run freely all day long. Since vampires never sleep being in a relationship with them gets tiresome. A girl needs her ‘beauty rest’ after all.

I, for one, look forward to seeing Jacob Black as a leading man in New Moon. The sequel begins production next month and stars Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan, Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black and Kellan Lutz as Emmett Cullen. New Moon has a US theatrical release date of November 20, 2009.

Twilight is still running in American theaters and has a DVD release date of March 21, 2009. The Twilight (Two-Disc Special Edition)is available for Pre-order now!

Taylor Lautner’s Native Heritage Questioned
February 1, 2009, 12:22 pm
Filed under: Jacob Black, Taylor Lautner | Tags: , , , , ,

Seriously people have nothing better to do then dish out random nonsense…

Indigenous People alleges that Taylor Lautner’s Native American roots are not as deep as they’ve been made out to be:
“Reliable insider sources, who preferred to stay anonymous, state Taylor Lautner’s Agent, was overheard in commenting during a conversation regarding Taylor Lautner’s Native American heritage, “Well, we had to work around that. We had to fudge it. No one will know the difference.”
Other sources such as Carol Levine over at nativevue.org also refute Taylor’s Native heritage, and have expressed outrage over the hiring of a non-Native American for the role of Jacob Black — though not necessarily towards Taylor himself of course!

Unfortunately, the quiet controversy surrounding Twilight is hardly new to Hollywood; As Levine points out, the recent film 21, which told the true story of MIT’s blackjack team, conveniently altered the fact that the math wizards who bested the Vegas casinos were all Asian. Disappointingly, Jim Sturgess & Kate Bosworth, both of whom I admire very much as actors, took on the lead roles in that film. Is Hollywood to blame, or is Hollywood merely a reflection of the public’s general preferences and prejudices?

So what exactly did Taylor Lautner claim his Native Heritage is? In a MTV interview, Taylor once stated, “I am part Native American. We learned that through [preparing for] this film. I’m French, Dutch and German, and on my mother’s side, she has some Potawatomi and Ottawa Indian in her.”



Chris Weitz on Taylor

Here

“Director Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass) picks up where Twilight’s Catherine Hardwicke left off on the production that starts shooting March 23. One of his first tasks on the sequel was deciding to keep Lautner, whose gangly Native American high-schooler in the first film transforms into a hulking giant over the course of the book series as he fulfills his tribe’s destiny.

“Taylor is a formidable guy, kind of a great tool in the toolbox,” Weitz says of the nearly 17-year-old actor who has been working out daily and has packed on 29 pounds, most of it muscle. “In the first movie, we did not see or recognize how dangerous a character he could be.”

As for Taylor himself, “he can kill me with his left pinky. But he is too nice to do that. There is something compelling and sexy about him. He captures the spirit of Jacob.”



Bad Review / Blog of Twilight

*breathes in*

Note to self: Never never never never never ever watch a movie made for teenagers in the theater on a Sunday afternoon again. Ever.

(I would like to apologize beforehand for the rant that is inevitably going to follow.)

Boy, was that annoying! I was never like this as a teenager. And I’m not just saying that.

Okay, so what happened? I went to see Twilight. See, I’ve never seen this theater in Cologne close to sold out except late on Saturday evenings. Because usually German teenagers aren’t interested in watching movies in English. Well… obviously a whole lot of German teenage girls wanted to know what Robert Pattinson sounds like in English. And giggle and whisper and sigh whenever he says something. Or moves his head. Or his eyes. Or just… is.

See, I am like Charlie. I like my solitude. I like things simple and quiet. I don’t like the crunchy popcorn or the doritos with cheese sauce. I enjoy a movie best when I can sink into it and forget that I’m sitting in a stuffy room with a couple hundred other people. Kinda hard to do that when you’re trapped in between two giggly 16-year-olds on the left and five or six even gigglier 16-year-olds on the right, and more in front of you and behind you. You don’t know how much I’m looking forward to watching Twilight again on DVD in a few months–alone, where there is no teenage snickering ruining every scene that Edward is in.

Having said that… let’s take a look at the actual movie. (Oh, and by the way, this contains spoilers.) My first impression? I liked it quite a lot. But I didn’t love it unconditionally. I’m trying not to let my annoyance with the teenage ruckus cloud my opinion, because I still did enjoy the movie a whole lot. But… I have a few buts.

But #1: Robert Pattinson. This time I don’t mean the effect he had on the girls. I just didn’t connect with Edward the way I think I should have. I would even go as far as saying I don’t think Robert is a very good actor. (To his defense, I’ve only seen him in Harry Potter and Twilight so far.) Most of the time, especially in the beginning, it was like Robert was overdoing it. Edward felt fake, didn’t feel natural. Of course you could argue that a vampire isn’t supposed to feel natural, but all the other vampires felt way more natural than Edward.

While we’re talking about feeling natural, Mike Newton felt natural. Jacob Black felt natural. Charlie felt natural. Bella felt… natural enough. She wasn’t clumsy enough, if you ask me. But I guess it would have been weird for the movie if she’d tripped over her own feet all the time.

But #2: The score. I think when you watch a movie and it has a good score, you’re either supposed to not notice it much or notice it in a positive way. Not here. There were a few times where I frowned because I didn’t think the score fit the scene or the atmosphere. I can’t even really say why or recall when exactly, I can just say that it didn’t feel right more than once. Though I did quite like that they picked Linkin Park as the end credit song.

But #3: The angles. Some of it was filmed at weird angles and had weird camera pans and cuts to the point where it felt choppy. It’s hard to put your finger on, but some of these cuts were like something out of a large-budget action movie. Twilight isn’t supposed to feel like an action movie. The scenes where they showed Edward’s superhuman speed were a little over the top. The tree-climbing? Didn’t work for me. Edward’s a vampire, not a monkey.

But #4: And this isn’t even a true but. Carlisle. Whoa. He was probably the character that surprised me the most visually. I had pictured him TOTALLY different. For one, I thought he would look older. Not like an aged man or anything, just… older. I also thought Jasper’s hair was bordering on the ridiculous. It got a whole lot of giggles out of the girlies too. I wanted to look away whenever I saw him because the hairdo was so bad. I don’t know what they were trying to do. Make him look unhumanly beautiful? Sorry, but that obviously failed–at least on me. Actually, I also thought Edward’s bird’s nest hair also looked kinda weird.

So let’s talk about the things I liked. Michael Welch. He was wonderful. Goofy. Natural. Cute. He owned Mike Newton. And he had more screentime than I thought he would have. Not so much in the last half of the movie, but he was in the first half quite a few times. I also liked Billy Burke as Charlie. And I loved Taylor Lautner as Jacob. I’m really glad he’ll be back for New Moon. He’ll have a whole lot more screentime in it too.

As for the movie itself, cinematographic hiccups aside, the atmosphere, the feel, the setting, that all fit very well. I was positively surprised by the Cullen’s house, in my imagination it had been more like a huge palace, like an old, refurbished mansion. But I quite liked what they showed in the movie. Also, Edward’s Volvo? I thought it would be more like the V50 or V70. The C30’s nice too, though. I loved the scenes where they showed Edward’s skin glittering. If only the girlies hadn’t giggled through all of it, I might have been able to fully enjoy the kind of magical beauty of it. Oh, and I LOVED the baseball game. So much better than what I had pictured when I read the book.

Maybe I should say a word or two about the bad guys. Cam Gigandet as James didn’t quite do much for me. He was just… there. I mean, yes, of course he was menacing when he attacked Bella. He just wasn’t… special. I loved Victoria, though. She certainly had a presence (if it wasn’t for that ridiculous fake, white furry rag she was wearing). I’m not all that impressed with the wardrobe for the movie, I have to say.

Oh, and uh… Kristen? Please eat. You look like you could use a pound or two more on your bony frame.

What still weirds me out when I think about it is seeing Mike Welch on the big screen and then thinking back to how we sat at The Waffle in LA, having dinner with him and his mom last October. It’s kinda strange that I know the guy in person, and knowing he knows who I am (which he might have forgotten in the meantime…).

Last but not least, did I think the movie lived up to the book? No. Did I think the movie did the book justice? Yes, as much as a 90-minute movie can do a 434 page book justice. Which isn’t to say it couldn’t have been made into a better script, but it certainly felt well executed and, I guess, as true to the book as possible.

All in all, I’m looking forward to buying the DVD and to watching it again. I’m also looking forward to the sequel (NOT on a Sunday afternoon). If I had to rate it, I’d give the movie a 7 out of 10.

Nice to see Taylor is buffing up to play the werewolf in New Moon.

Taylor Lautner has almost reached his goal of gaining 29 lbs. for the Twilight sequel, New Moon.

“I’ve been working hard for eight or nine months, and I’ve put on about 26 pounds of muscle,” he told Usmagazine.com Saturday at the Access Hollywood “Stuff You Must” Gift Lounge in West Hollywood.

“I’m literally in the gym every single day for at least two hours a day,” added the actor, 16.

“It’s hard work,” he told Us. “My motivation is basically my passion for the character of Jacob and the series. I want the fans to be proud of the movie, so I have to live up to Jacob.”

Besides hitting the gym, “I’m trying to eat as much as possible,” he said. “Basically I’m supposed to eat everything I can and try to keep it lean. Lean meats and veggies.”

It was announced earlier this month that Lautner will return following weeks of questions about whether he could effectively portray his werewolf character (who grows a foot taller and looks 25 years old in the sequel). Most fans overwhelmingly wanted Lautner back.

Lautner told Us the support of Twilight has been “crazy.”

“It’s blown up into something we had no idea,” he said, “so it’s really exciting. I’m so thrilled to be a part of something like this.”

New Moon begins shooting later this year.
