Mackenzie Foy As Renesmee

When I found out that Mackenzie Foy was cast as Renesmee, I thought to myself, how are they going to make her into a baby/toddler? Because Mackenzie is obviously not a little kid, let alone a baby/toddler. I mean, I can understand why the casting director chose an “older” actress to play such a young character because that’s what they did with Claudia aka Kirsten Dunst from the movie version of Interview With The Vampire. What I mean by that in the book and movie, Claudia is basically a fully grown woman who’s trapped in a 6-year-old body. So, when they were casting for Claudia, they wanted to cast a slightly older actress to play her because there was no way that an actual 6-year-old actress who could even remotely act the necessary emotions, intelligence, etc., that is required from the character. So, what I’m basically saying is that an actor/actress who is actually the same age as the character might be able to play the necessary maturity that the character calls for. Anyway, as for whether or not Mackenzie will be good as Renesmee, I don’t know. I haven’t seen her act.

Judi Shekoni vs. Marsha Thomason

Last month, I found out that Judi Shekoni was going to be playing Zafrina, from the Amazonia coven, for Breaking Dawn. As I looked at her picture, it dawned on me that she guest-starred on an episode of NCIS, the one where the model died on a Navy or Marine base while filming a reality show. Anyway, the reason I’m bringing this up is because at first, when I saw that episode, I thought that she was the same actress who played Eddie Murphy’s wife in The Haunted Mansion. So, I looked the woman who played Eddie Murphy’s wife in The Haunted Mansion, aka Marsha Thomason, and realized that Marsha Thomason and Judi Shekoni were two separate women. To me, they could pass for sisters. Anyway, that’s just what I think.

Casey LaBow As Kate From Breaking Dawn

Back in September, I found out who was cast as the Denali clan from Breaking Dawn. And it turns out that Casey LaBow, who played Cherish in an episode of Moonlight, will play Kate. Well, I can’t remember how Kate was, personality wise, but in terms of looks, I can totally picture her as a vampire. Anyway, I’m interested to see how it turns out.

My Eclipse Experience

Yesterday, I saw the third movie in the Twilight series. Well, it was quite different from my New Moon experience. Since yesterday was a Tuesday and given what time I went, there weren’t a lot of crazy fan girls. Anyway, my opinion of the movie would be three stars out of a possible five stars. I have my reasons for that rating. My major reason is that it seemed choppy. What I mean by that is the scenes didn’t really flow. It just went from one scene to the next with no explanation. One would be at the graduation party when it goes from Alice having a vision of the battle to the Cullens, Jacob, Quil, and Embry talking about the newborns and training. Another reason for my rating was how the plot was written. In this case, I wish that they kept the scenes in order. For example, the thing with Bella’s red shirt. In the book, Bella figured the connection between the shirt and the newborns out right before the graduation and told Alice. In the movie, it was Alice who figured it out and it was at the graduation party. Anyway, my last reason was the back stories. I wish that they had shown Carlisle finding Rosalie, Jasper and Alice meeting, and a little bit more of the Quilete tribe’s backstory. I also wish that Jacob at least make mention of Quil and Jared imprinting on Claire and Kim, respectively, when he was explaining imprinting to Bella. Anyway, those were my reasons for my rating. By the way, is it just me or did the scene where the newborn vampires come out of the water remind anyone of the scene from Pirates of the Caribbean 1 where the evil pirates were walking in the water underneath the Dauntless towards the end of the movie?

The Twilight Saga On The Most Challenged Books List?

Within the last two to three months, I saw a post on TwilightMoms about how the Twilight Saga was challenged due to the religious factors, the age appropriateness, and the sex between Bella and Edward. While I agree that the age appropriateness could be improved upon, I don’t see why Twilight would be challenged on the basis of religious factors and the intimate relations between Bella and Edward. Well, first off, in terms of the religious factors, it’s not like any specific religion is endorsed. The only thing that I can think of that could possibly relate is the question of whether or not vampires have souls. And besides, if there’s a vampire series that you could argue has a more obvious religious viewpoint is the Vampire Chronicles. Because from about the fifth book on, Lestat becomes more religious. Anyway, the thing about the sex between Bella and Edward, I don’t really see why people would be up in arms about it. In Breaking Dawn, it’s not like the sex scenes are explicit. In the book, Stephanie Meyer merely alludes to it. Plus, I would think that people would be all right with it because Bella and Edward were already married at that point. Anyway, I don’t really get why the Twilight Saga was challenged in the first place, other than the age appropriateness.
