Hi, December! *Waves back* Yes, I've been lurking.
So I'm wondering...am I the only person on this site who hasn't seen NM and isn't planning to see Eclipse? Who has serious issues with watching particular, concrete, visible people (that is, actors) trying to act out people (that is, Edward, Bella etc) I already have in my head? I wish I could get my mind round these films because it would be such fun to have more Twilight, new Twilight, to look forward to, immerse myself in, talk about -- but I just really don't want to go there!
RE: The movies- I know where you are coming from. The actors don't match up to the people that I have in my head either. Razpaz irritates me like no other. He just does nothing for me. Although I like Kirsten Stewart in her other movies, I really think she is misplaced in her role. The other characters besides Anna Kendrick and Taylor, I don't care for. I thought about not seeing the movies after the movie Twilight since I absolutely hated it, but I continued to see the films because of morbid curiosity as well as I can't help but get swept away with the energy and passion of the fans when I go to the midnight premieres. I know I'm contradicting myself, but that's my only explanation. *shrugs* By the way, I strongly feel that way about watching any "Wuthering Heights" adaptation, except the latest version that I saw with Tom Hardy was pretty close to how I imagined the characters.
