Hello and welcome to BBR! Today on BBR we will be doing a movie review with Dr. Daen. For those of you who don’t know, Dr. Daen is a very close friend of mine. He has a doctorate in Bullshit and will call you on it in a moments notice. So with that being said, let’s get started!
BBR: Hi, Dr. Daen, thank you for joining us today :)
Dr. Daen: Thank you. Thank you. Glad to be here.
BBR: So, you just recently watched Twilight, is that right?
Dr. Daen: That is correct-amundo.
BBR: Fantastic, can we now say that you are a HUGE Twilight fan?
Dr. Daen: You mean being a fan of the horrible actor of the most epic ending in Twilight...EVER!?
BBR: Now, now, Doctor. Please, let’s not jump the gun. We’re only on Twilight, let’s not fast forward to the last movie.
Dr. Daen: Okay, Okay, sorry. Excuse myself. *sniffles*
BBR: Are you sick?
Dr. Daen: Oh, very sick of seeing Kristen Stewarts acting through five movies.
BBR: I’m sorry to hear that, but I’m sure a lot of the readers out there can understand the pain that you went through.
Dr. Daen: hahahaha. Good one, BBR. Oh I love you so much. HAHAHAHA
BBR: *silence ensues*
Dr. Daen: hahahaha… hahahaha...hahaha
BBR: Ahem… are you done?
Dr. Daen: *pulls self together* *ahem* Yes, forgive me.
BBR: Not a problem. Lets start from the beginning, shall we?
Dr. Daen: You mean the beginning to end of all actors.
BBR: Heh. yes, yes, aside from her non acting abilities, how did you like the beginning of the movie?
Dr. Daen: Uhmm. Since I haven’t read the books...and going based off just the movie, I found it very slow. They could have… I think they could have introduced the characters a bit more. Like gone into a bit detail. Because I’ve heard from you, that the books went into much more detail.
BBR: Ahh, right, right. Books aside, did you think the movie as a whole was slow?
Dr. Daen: Yeah, I thought the very first movie was very, VERY boring.
BBR: Was there anything that you liked in the movie?
Dr. Daen: I kinda liked how they introduced Edward in the movie. How he tried to stop a truck from crushing the worst actor in the history of the world. That mother fucker. WHY!!???
BBR: You liked that he stopped the truck, or did you like the fact that she would have done an awesome “I-AM-DEAD” acting piece?
Dr. Daen: Definitely the second.
BBR: I see. Now, what was your favorite part of the movie?
Dr. Daen: My favorite part was when we were introduced to the Cullen family. I really enjoyed that. I really liked the family.
BBR: Definitely, I’m a big fan of the Cullens <3
Dr. Daen: Oh and the baseball scene. BADASS!
BBR: And what was your least favorite part of the movie?
Dr. Daen: When they showed off Edwards’ fast movement running thing.
Dr. Daen: I found it really cheesy. And when Edward walked into the sunlight. I thought that was cheesy as well. A diamond vampire? Make the mother fucker burn!
BBR: Heh. Sparkle! Would you recommend this movie to anyone?
Dr. Daen: Hmm. Uhmm. *lots of thinking going on* If you like a twist on vampire/fantasy then yeah. Cause, I mean, they don’t burn in the sun, so...that’s a small little twist. And along with their special little powers.
BBR: okay an-
Dr. Daen: I mean, I like the idea with vampires have some sort of ability. Instead of it just being “I’m gonna suck your blood.” In fact in Cirque de Freak, they fed off of animals. So it’s not like it’s anything new.
BBR: Okay an-
Dr. Daen: As far as abilities go, I’ve never heard of any other book that does that.
BBR: *ahem* okay. that’s good to know. Now, 10 being the highest, what would you rate this movie?
Dr. Daen: Hmm. I’d say 5. I didn’t really like it, but I didn’t really hate it. Because of the specific scenes that I mentioned above.
BBR: Great! Thanks for stopping by! Will you be joining us again soon?
Dr. Daen: Oh, hell yeah I’ll be coming back. And real soon too! I enjoyed my stay!
