There’s an eclipse in my heart . . .
As The Irish Times is currently not in possession of a teenage girl-crush blog, what better place to post these teaser photographs of the newest instalment of Stephanie Meyer ‘s Twilight saga?! I’ll resist the urge to get completely fangurl …
I’ll resist the urge to get completely fangurl on you and admit that, yes, the books are mediocre in a Dan Brown kind of way; and yes, the acting is a little hammy (but has no one seen The Tudors? That is hammy acting, and that is awesome); and, yes, in New Moon Robby P kind of lost his charm given that the make-up artists clearly got over-zealous with the talcum powder, and Jacob’s toned torso reminded me that I am (a) too old for him and (b) too slovenly to ever compete with his young, active lifestyle . . . BUT! But but but. It’s all just brilliant.
But word to the (un)wise: do not read the books! They are mediocre in a Dan Brown kind of way (see above), and no hammy acting can detract from the fact that the storyline of book four is 10,000 kinds of awesome and, should you ruin it for yourself by reading Meyer’s chino-obsessed ramblings, you will be sorry. The end.
