The Jabberwock vs. Chernabog

I rewatched Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland last Saturday to help write a school paper. Anyway, I saw this the first time I saw Alice In Wonderland but it didn’t dawn on me until the second time I watched. Have you guys noticed that the way that the jabberwocky came forward was very similar to the way that Chernabog from Fantasia woke up? To be quite honest, I’m not surprised by that because Disney was involved with both movies.

Top 10 Loved Vampires

I was watching E!’s show 10 Vampires We Love shortly after I came home from watching New Moon. The show was a countdown of the vampires that the people of E! like. I’ll include the list at the end of this post. Anyway, I have a bone to pick with who they chose to be on the list. I noticed that the list didn’t include, in my opinion, a variety of vampires, and the fact that all, except one, of the vampires are from movies or tv shows that came out within the last ten years. Anyway, what I mean by the lack of variety is that four of the vampires came from two different sources. I find it biased like how this post is. The reason that I have a problem is that they didn’t include other vampires like Henry Fitzpatrick from Blood Ties, Mick St. John from Moonlight or any of the vampires from the Vampire Chronicles or The Lost Boys. I don’t think it’s right to put a relatively unknown vampire like Santinico Pandemonium or Dracula from Dracula 2000 on a list like 10 Vampires We Love when there are better qualified vampires out there.

10. Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore
9. Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen
8. David Boreanaz as Angel
7. Stephen Moyer as Bill Compton
6. Selma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium
5. Gerard Butler as Dracula in Dracula 2000
4. Wesley Snipes as Blade
3. Kate Beckinsale as Selene
2. Alexander Skarsgaard as Eric Northman
1. Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen

A Forbidden Romance

You know, with all the tv shows having talked about the Twilight series, since New Moon was coming out, and how Bella and Edward’s relationship was forbidden, etc., it made me think. Why are people hooked onto the Twilight stuff when there are other movies or other pieces of literature where there is a forbidden romance in it? I mean, there is the classic Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare. There is also the movie Titanic. In Romeo & Juliet, the forbidden romance was the fact that the couple were from feuding families. In Titanic, Jack and Rose were from different classes. What is it about Bella and Edward’s relationship that makes it so different from the other two? Is it because he’s a vampire and she’s human and that’s something new? I really just don’t get it.

Werewolves vs. Shapeshifters pt. 2

Like I said in my previous post, I finished Breaking Dawn last month. Anyway, the other part that struck me was when Aro and Caius were talking about the “werewolves”. When Aro actually said that Jacob and “the rest of the pack” were actually shapeshifters and not real werewolves, I was like, yes, I knew it! I knew that they weren’t real werewolves. Like I said in one of my previous post, and keep in mind that I hadn’t read Breaking Dawn at that time, I knew that there was something off about the description of the werewolves. And besides, I have never heard of werewolves in Native American stories. I have only heard of shapeshifters/skinwalkers in the Native American stories. I usually hear of werewolf stories in the context of Europe and in what European immigrants brought to North America. I’m just saying that before you actually believe that Jacob and everyone else in the Quileute tribe are werewolves, look up general Native American stories. And in this case, I’m glad that I have an interest in the paranormal or else I wouldn’t have questioned Stephanie Meyer’s knowledge of werewolves.

Renesmee vs. Nessie

I finished reading Breaking Dawn last month. Anyway, one of the parts that stuck out in my mind was when the Volturi are coming to find out as to what Renesmee is exactly. The thing that I have a bone to pick with is the fact that Bella bitches and moans about how everybody calls Renesmee “Nessie.” Now, I kinda can see why she would rather people call Renesmee by her actual name, because I really don’t like it when people call me something different. But the thing that I don’t get is why doesn’t Bella just accept that Nessie is just easier to say than Renesmee. Why does she insist on having everybody her Renesmee? I mean it’s just like Jacob said in the book. Renesmee is a mouthful to say. Plus, it’s kinda hard to say in the first place. Anyway, that’s just what I think. And I know that the picture is a picture of Claudia from Interview With The Vampire. But there aren’t any pictures that I could find that I thought were appropriate.

Who Will Be Breaking Dawn’s Director?

I was wondering the same thing after watching Twilight: In The Spotlight on the Reelzchannel. Anyway, one the suggestions that was brought up was Tim Burton. I think that he would do an excellent job on directing Breaking Dawn. I say that because I think his aesthetic will match Breaking Dawn‘s storyline. Now, as for the other directors that were mentioned, I can’t really say if they would do a great job on directing Breaking Dawn because it’s not like I’ve seen any of their movies, as far as I know. Anyway, I hope that whoever does direct Breaking Dawn, they do a good job.

Tim Burton and Labyrinth

I was watching this Labryinth music video the other day, which I’m not going to upload because it’s not mine, and I thought to myself, Tim Burton would have been a great director for Labyrinth. I don’t know why I thought that. I think what it is is that Tim Burton’s movies and Labryinth has a very similar aesthetic. The only thing that I would be concerned about would be all the puppet use in Labyrinth. Anyway, that’s just what I think.
