Lestat & Edward as Byronic Heros

I was looking up Edward Cullen on Wikipedia and I saw that it said that Edward was a Byronic hero. Because of that, I clicked on the link that explained what a Byronic hero was. Anyway, as I was reading the characteristics, it did sounds like Edward As I continued down the website, it mentioned that Lestat from the Vampire Chronicles and the Phantom from the Phantom of the Opera were Byronic heros as well, but I digress with the Phantom. That made me think about how much Lestat and Edward were alike in the sense that they are both Byronic heros. I think that’s the reason why I don’t like either character. I mean, it’s not that I hate them, but it’s just that they’re not my favorites characters from their respective series. Anyway, I think that’s the reason why I don’t like Lestat and Edward is the fact that they’re Byronic heros.

Lestat vs. Edward Pictures

In my search for any Lestat vs. Edward stuff, I found quite a few pictures that made fun of Edward and the Twilight series or making fun of the fact the Twilight series “outshines” the Vampire Chronicles. The one that I found to be the most funny was the one where it showed Edward and Bella together in the first box, and the following three boxes showing Louis, Lestat, and Armand telling their opinions on the series. I found that Lestat’s and Armand’s reactions to be the most funny. Their reactions were classic Lestat and Armand. Anyway, the next one that I thought was funny was the one where Lestat as picking on Edward. I just found those funny. By the way, you can find the originals at this site.

Lestat vs. Edward Smackdown

I was bored recently and was on my computer I don’t know why but I typed Lestat vs. Edward into Google to see what I would get. Anyway, a lot of stuff that popped up were drawings of people making fun of Edward through Lestat’s point of view, and videos and articles asking who would win in a no-holds bar fight. I immediately thought that Lestat would definitely win. I say that because, after looking up their powers as a refresher, while Edward has super strength, super speed, and can read minds, Lestat can do or has all of that, plus so much more. Lestat also has pyrokinesis, the ability to fly, and he’s telekinetic. Plus, he killed an entire wolf pack by himself, albeit with the help of his two mastiff dogs. Anyway, I really think that Lestat would definitely win the fight against Edward, and that’s assuming Lestat doesn’t fall in love with Edward first, which I doubt would actually happen, and that Lestat doesn’t hurt Bella.

Eclipse Chapter 18

I finished reading Eclipse about a month, maybe a month and a half ago. The thing that I found most funny was in chapter 18 when Jacob, when he was in wolf form, came up to Bella and licked her. In that same general area, I also liked when Jacob, again in wolf form, looked like he was smiling. I think the reason why I liked those two parts was because it’s typical of Jacob to be happy-go-lucky. Anyway, I just found those two parts to be funny.

The New Moon Clip

I recently watched the New Moon clip where Bella tells Jacob that he’s “sorta beautiful.” When I saw that part of the clip, I was thinking, Is that really his body? Or is it that his head was put onto someone else’s body? I’m sorry but to me, it looks like Taylor Lautner’s head was digitally put onto someone else’s body and it was edited weird. And if it was, I would have been disappointed at Chris Weitz because of what I saw in The Golden Compass. Anyway, that’s just my opinion.

The Volturi

I recently found a blog that talked about the picture of the Volturi that leaked from New Moon. When I first saw the picture, I was like “Oh my God! That’s Dakota Fanning, Jaime Campbell Bower, Cameron Bright, and Christopher Heyerdahl?” I can see the resemblance between Jaime Campell Bower, who was Anthony in Sweeney Todd, and Cameron Bright, who was Jimmy/Leech, the mutant who’s power neutralized other mutants’ power in X-Men 3, and their respective characters. But when it came to Dakota Fanning and Christopher Heyerdahl, I didn’t recognize them at all. As for Michael Sheen, I can’t really say because I haven’t seen a lot of his pictures or movies. Anyway, with the exception of Michael Sheen, I really think that each actor that was chosen are the appropriate choices for each character, especially Christopher Heyerdahl. I think that he can pull off the creepiness of Marcus, based on what I’ve seen in Supernatural and Are You Afraid of the Dark. To all Supernatural and Are You Afraid of the Dark fans, he played the demon Alister in season 4, the alien Leonid and Nosferatu in The Tale of the Thirteenth Floor and The Tale of the Midnight Madness. Anyway, I can’t wait to see New Moon.

Edward vs. Jacob

I was recently looking at the forums on the amazon.com page for the paperback copy for Eclipse and one of the posts talked about who would you choose between Edward and Jacob, and how old each person was. Anyway, a majority of the replies were for Edward and had a wide range of ages, while the rest for Jacob or neither. Now, keep in mind that I have only read Twilight, New Moon, and the preface and the first chapter of Eclipse. I still have to read Breaking Dawn. In either case, I don’t really know how Edward or Jacob act in Eclipse and Breaking Dawn as of yet. However, based on Twilight and New Moon, I personally choose Jacob over Edward. No offense to Edward fans but I find him to be a bit too old fashioned for me, in terms of personality. I’m not saying that I wouldn’t want my guy to open the door for me every once in while, but I wouldn’t want to be treated like I’m a piece of glass either. I would rather have my guy be more like Jacob, personality wise. Anyway, that’s just my opinion and keep in mind that it was formed only on the first two books.
