The Complete Twilight Saga Blu-Ray Is Inexplicably Without Sparkles

Entertainment Weekly debuted the inevitable complete set of the Twilight Saga but I have to say, I’m a bit disappointed. It’s so…plain. Writes EW, “Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga, a 10-disc Blu-ray set or a 12-disc DVD set, will be available on Nov. 5 — right before the fifth anniversary of the first Twilight — and includes two hours of never-before-seen bonus material, including new cast interviews, as well as all five movies.” It will also include a photo album and every extra from the older DVDs. Though I suppose there’s still room for the super special edition that comes in a life-sized replica of Robert Pattison, Kristen Stewart, or Taylor Lautner’s head.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Is Named the Year’s Worst Movie by the Razzies. Go On, Act Surprised.

There were worse movies to come out this year, to be sure. But, like the Oscars they were created to mock, the Razzie Awards is just a yearly bit of fluff that picks their winners (or “winners”) based on mostly meaningless criteria. So let’s just sit back and have fun with it, yeah?

And All Was Right With the World

If Twilight Had Cast Paul Giamatti as Edward I Definitely Would Have Seen It [VIDEO]

So here’s National Treasure Paul Giamatti acting out scenes from Twilight, You’ve Got Mail, and Magic Mike. He… emotes a little more than Robert Pattinson, let’s put it like that.

The video is behind the jump; it went dead at a few minutes ago because apparently some Higher Power doesn’t think the world is ready to handle the awesome that is Paul Giamatti as a creepy, stalkerish sparkly vampire. But when embed code’s working again—soon, hopefully—you can judge that for yourself. [Edit: It appears to be working now.]

This Makes Sense

To the Surprise Of No One, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Gets Nominated in Every Single Razzie Awards Category

Tomorrow morning the 2013 Oscar nominations will be announced, but today we’re focusing our attention on the Razzies, which have honored (well, “honored”) the worst achievements in film since 1981. Judging by the noms alone, Razzie voters seem to have already picked their least favorite film of the year: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which was nominated 11 times in 10 categories.

I’d question what the Razzies will do now that there are no more Twilight movies to nominate (THANK. YOU. GOD.), but it’s not like there’s any shortage of awful movies without sparkly vampires in them. Still, the Razzies should give the franchise a lifetime achievement award or something.

Natalie Portman and Kristen Stewart Top Forbes’ List of Most Bankable Actors

Like them or not, Natalie Portman and Kristen Stewart have one good thing going for them, at least as far as the production side of making movies is concerned: According to Forbes’ annual list of “Hollywood’s Best Actors For The Buck,” they’re the two most bankable stars around.

Twilight’s Robert Pattinson Would Take Any Role Just To Be In Star Wars VII

Robert Pattinson is doing a lot of press these days thanks to the final installment of the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn Part 2, being released this past week. Since he’s not actually the biggest fan of anything having to do with Twilight, interviewers take part of their time to ask him other, more interesting questions. For instance, would he be interested in a role in Disney’s Star Wars VII? Yes, yes he would. And he is willing to play anyway. Yes, anyone, even Jar-Jar.

Robert Pattinson Speaks On Behalf Of Every Twilight Hater In The World [VIDEO]

Whenever we do a post on Twilight on The Mary Sue, we inevitably get comments with people talking about how much they despise Stephenie Meyer’s writing, the actors involved, or just, you know, the fact that it exists at all. But the funny thing is, you clicked on a story about Twilight so we’re not sure how to help you. So today, in order to please both those who hate sparkly vampires and those who’ve probably already seen The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 by now, we’ve got a wonderful video from Buzzfeed. They spliced together bits of interviews with Robert Pattinson talking about the films and his character Edward. Which he can’t stand. And well, I’d feel really bad for him if he didn’t have hundred dollar bills falling on the floor every time he raked his hands through his hair. Seriously though. Watch.

Double-Standard Central: Everyone Needs to Stop Freaking Out About This Kristen Stewart Thing

I don’t really need to tell you what’s going on with Kristen Stewart right now. If you have an Internet connection, you know. She cheated on Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman. The scandal has given birth to a plethora of gossip rag covers, a few awkward TV interviews and speculation on how the final film in the Twilight franchise might be affected by the break-up of its stars.

I don’t want to talk about any of those things.

With everybody—from gossip hubs like Perez Hilton and TMZ to legitimate bastions of entertainment journalism like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter—keeping the public informed about the (possibly career-ruining, if reports can be believed) scandal, what gets me most curious about this whole thing is why people care so much.

One Of These Men Might Be Finnick Odair In Catching Fire

We’re sorry to do this to you again. A lot of names have been thrown around for the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and the District 4 tribute just might be the most anticipated new cast member in the entire film, but do we finally have the answer? Both of these men, Tony Shalhoub and Sam Claflin, are being courted for the Lionsgate film. Hit the jump to find out who they could be playing.

Cast and Crew Say Fan Killed Outside Comic Con Will Not Go Unremembered

I try to keep a “hate the sin, love the sinner” policy on Twilight and its fandom. Frankly, I feel like it’s only fair for a number of reasons. A work can be deconstructed much less painfully than a person. Certainly, there’s almost nothing about the central principles of the Batman mythos that I would actually like to see exist in reality, from vigilante tactics to child endangerment. And realistically, if I decided to immediately regard with disgust every person who likes something that I find to be poorly made or textually problematic, I wouldn’t have a lot of human interaction, and that includes with myself.

I suppose what I’m trying to say is that I pity the Twilight fandom, because while there are plenty of fandoms out there that exist around poorly made or textually problematic works, they’re the Black Sheep of the geek world. I could talk about why I think they’ve been placed in that box, but that’s another post entirely. This post is about the unfortunate death of a fan, at one of the biggest fan events of the year, and no matter what you think about a work of fiction, you should be able to agree that the untimely death of a fan in the middle of a fan celebration is tragic.
