All teenage girls, their more (err) mature counterparts, including their grandmothers, are probably shrieking their way to the cinemas to see Eclipse today (was it today?).
I'm not one of them. I can wait until the DVD comes out. This is because I will surely catch myself groaning loudly with exasperation in the cinema while watching the movie and would prefer to do this in the privacy of my home. I'd be mostly expressing myself during scenes of absolute mushiness and when the girls in the cinema shriek with "kilig." At least at home, I can even let out the occasional "Oh, come on!!!" that I tend to do with movies of this kind.
I'm not going to be a hypocrite who claims not to like the series. I liked listening to the audio books (because I still refuse to read them out of principle -- I've found a way around that, it seems), but the movies are just fanservice projects. It's just so girls could attach faces to the characters in the story.
Like I said last year, the franchise sucks. The storyline is weak and the scenes are ultra-cheesy. However, it doesn't change the fact that raw teenage feelings of lust and love have been accurately captured by the author. They were...err... sensual.
I mean what girl couldn't refuse being fought over by a gorgeously sophisticated older guy (who happens to be a supermodel-ish vampire) and your hot, caveman-like guy best friend (who happens to be a werewolf)?
Honestly, the monster-love angles are just plain weird. But then, the books wouldn't have gained any attention if there weren't any.
Hmm... looks like Jacob needs to stand on a box here. He looks more like a were-pup than a wolf in front of his overly-foundationed arch enemy. Err, scratch that. They look more like they want Bella out of the picture.
Guess who's back?!?
Ok, so MAYBE most people don't care about my resurrection from blogsphere semi-death. I never would have thought I would go so long without posting anything here.
What's with the absence? It's a loooooong story that I would preferably keep private. Basically, I ended up making drastic changes to my personal and social lifestyle. It looked rather dreary in the beginning, but lately, things have started to pan out and fall into place.
Shitty things happen when you least expect them to, but it's the way you bounce back that makes the person you are.
The last few weeks had been a time of reflection, realisations and rediscovery -- for which The Kooks played the music in the background. I love these guys. I'm thinking of stalking them. Harhar!
I'm not dead.
Although, at the moment, I might as well be. There's too much stuff going on in my real life right now that I can't share, but I will certainly be back -- together with drastic life changes, most possibly.
I kept telling to myself that this will be my year, because 2009 was shitty as heck. But the second quarter of 2010 has just taken a dump on my pretty little head that last year's problems paled in comparison.
So TTFN (ta-ta for now), but you will most certainly hear from me again. Soon, hopefully.
