Media Essay-Twilight Review

Extracts from this document...


Twilight Review They call themselves vegetarians, but to fit into society, they don't think twice about killing animals to quench their thirst...... Twilight is based on the No. 1 New York Times Bestselling series (30 weeks and counting) by Stephanie Meyer. It was released in the UK on 19th December 2008 and became a worldwide phenomenon especially with the teenage girl population. Twilight was directed by Catherine Hardwicke with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson playing the lead roles of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. The film was filmed in the rainy town of Forks, Washington, USA and has over 100 fan sites. "Most epic romance since Titanic." - Hollywood.com, "Phenomenal- truly magnificent and absolutely unforgettable." - Wireless Magazines, "Wonderfully entertaining...you cant keep your eyes off Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson." - Fandango, "Robert Pattinson is rebel cool incarnated- the James Dean of the un-dead." - Vanity Fair. Twilight is a modern romantic action film about 17 year old Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen (Rob Pattinson). Bella has always been a little bit different, never caring about fitting in with the other girls at her Phoenix high school. When her mother remarries and they take to the road, Bella decides to spend some time with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington. ...read more.


Charlie married Bella's mother, Ren�e, just after they both graduated high school and they soon had Bella. Ren�e divorced Charlie not long after and moved to Phoenix, Arizona, with Bella. Charlie was still in love with her, but had gotten past the fact that she didn't love him anymore. He became accustomed to living alone, which is probably part of the reason he is quite shy and likes to be alone sometimes. Ren�e Dwyer, previously Ren�e Swan, is Bella's mother, and is an eccentric, silly person who will brave new things (like skydiving and book clubs) and come to her senses later. Bella always felt that she was the mother of their relationship, having to guide Ren�e away from doing ridiculous things, and Ren�e thought of Bella as her middle-aged child. Ren�e remarries a much younger baseball player, Phil Dwyer, Bella unselfishly sends herself to live with her dad in Forks so that Ren�e and Phil can travel together. Ren�e's appearances in Twilight are brief, but it is still noticeable of her young, lively personality. Jacob Black is only a minor role in Twilight, but later he becomes one of the major characters. He is a Quileute Native American and later he becomes able to shape shift into a werewolf. ...read more.


Straight after this scene, it then slowly fades to the next scene, where we see Bella waking up in hospital. Here it didn't suddenly jump to the hospital scene as you would probably have lost the emotion, where as when it fades out, it keeps you emotion and suspense, wanting to find out if Bella is still alive. Twilight is set in the wet, rainy town of Forks, Washington. Forks is a small place, with a population that is so small that everyone knows everyone and all their businesses. When Bella first moves to Forks, she remembers how small the town is, as everywhere she goes the people all know who she is and what she's called. The quietness of the town is what attracted the Cullen family to Forks, when they first moved there, as there isn't enough people to tempt them, and to keep to themselves a bit easier. As you can see, I really enjoyed Twilight and am a big fan. I have seen the movie a trillion times and would recommend anyone else to go and see it too. I can't wait for the next movie to come out, later this year and I hope you see Twilight soon, so you can see how fantastic it is too!!! ?? ?? ?? ??
