24 Questions I Have After Re-Watching The 'Twilight' Series

24 Questions I Have After Re-Watching The 'Twilight' Series

How did I ever think this was top-notch cinematography?

This past weekend I came to a sudden realization that "Twilight" is still a series that exists and I have access to all five movies. I, like many gross middle schoolers, read all the books after my mom gave me permission and I swooned at how amazing I thought they were. And I won't even lie about it: I definitely fantasized about meeting a guy like Edward Cullen. And now, roughly ten years later, I re-watched the films out of pure curiosity and boy oh boy do I have some questions about what I saw.

1. First of all, what was Kristen Stewart's face reactions?

Obviously, she's a much better actress than she was ten years ago. But we all have to admit that the face reactions, over-the-top sighs, and rapid blinking were just a little too much.

2. Why was Bella so darn clumsy?

Summit Entertainment

There's no way anybody can be that clumsy and just that bad at staying on their own two feet! Falling down every once in a while is decent characterization, but for it to keep happening over and over and over is a little ridiculous.

3. Why does everyone in the new school know who Bella is immediately?

Summit Entertainment

This confusion may lie in the fact that I went to a high school where just my graduating class had 700 students, and the idea of anybody being aware that there was a new student on campus was slim to none. But was the school really just that small that everyone immediately knew who she was and had to treat her like a celebrity?

4. Can we talk about why this was Edward's reaction after first seeing Bella?

Summit Entertainment

Edward has zero chill, there is no reason for him to be that extra with his reaction to her walking into the room.

5. Was "It's the fluorescents" really the best excuse Edward could give when Bella questioned him about his eyes changing color?

Summit Entertainment

You could've just told Bella she was tripping instead of making yourself look stupid with that lame excuse.

6. Why did Edward tell Bella they shouldn't be friends after he blatantly ignored her and looked like he wanted to vomit at the first sight of her?

Summit Entertainment

It's not even like he was acting remotely friendly to begin with.

7. The scene where Edward acts like he's the worst monster imaginable, but then he just starts...sparkling?

Summit Entertainment

Sorry that your diamond encrusted body doesn't immediately shout "Mass Blood-Sucking Murderer".

8. Also, the chimes sound effects is a little much.

This scene is ridiculous to begin with, and the idea of a vampire sparkling in the sunlight is already difficult to grasp in the first place, and the added chime sound effect makes this scene more comical than anything else.

9. And why did everyone just overlook the fact that Edward watched Bella while she slept? Why were we all okay with that?

Summit Entertainment

THIS ISN'T SOMETHING TO SWOON OVER, BELLA. YOU HAVE A STALKER.

10. Also, how does Edward drive? He must need a driver's license and for that you need a SSN and a birth certificate and Edward's been alive since 1901, so how did that work out at the DMV?

Summit Entertainment

These are the questions I need answers to.

11. And why did Edward keep repeating high school? Is he trying to torture himself? 

Summit Entertainment

My dude just enroll in college, you look old enough to be there. Why would anyone want to keep repeating high school, it makes no sense!

12. "You better hold on tight, spider monkey." Who allowed that line to get past the first draft?

Summit Entertainment

All I want to know is how Robert Pattinson managed to say that with a straight face.

13. Why can't Emmett sit down in a car?

Summit Entertainment

Clearly, these vampires have to be driving without a license because I see no possible way for them to realistically get one with their birth records, so why risk getting pulled over by a being a big old dumbo and just not sitting in the seat and wearing a seat belt?

14. Bella's response to Edward telling her he's designed to kill and wants to kill her is "I don't care"...Again, why did we think that was normal?

Summit Entertainment

Girl, this isn't a flaw that you can just overlook in a man!

15.  The paper cut scene where Edward yeets Bella into a wall...Yeah, what was that?

Summit Entertainment

Not only did Edward unnecessarily throw Bella into a wall, but he escalated the situation by throwing her into some glass vases no less!

16. Why couldn't Jacob wear a shirt in any of the movies?

Summit Entertainment

Was there not enough in the costuming budget for them to supply Taylor Lautner with a shirt?

17. And why, why, why did Bella tell Jacob to kiss her and then told Edward she didn't know what happened?

Summit Entertainment

I'll tell you what happened, you literally just made out with someone who's not your boyfriend while your actual boyfriend stood 20 feet away.

18. Why was Bella more excited to see Jacob at her wedding than she was walking down the aisle to see Edward?

Summit Entertainment

19. Just look at how happy she is to see him.

Summit Entertainment

WHY WAS EDWARD NOT GIVEN THE SAME COMPASSION?

19. And why was everyone all on board for a 17-year-old Bella to get married?

Summit Entertainment

My parents would never.

20. Did Edward have to be that extra and break the headboard/demolish the entire room?

Summit Entertainment

Think of the people who work in housekeeping who have to clean that up...

21. Can we also talk about the horrible CGI effects on Renesmee?

Summit Entertainment

In what galaxy does this look like a normal human child?

22. Jacob imprinting on Renesmee is a little much, right?

Summit Entertainment

Well, it's still weird!

23. And can we all agree that Renesmee is the worst name in the world?

Summit Entertainment

To be fair if it were a boy, Bella was going to name it EJ (Edward Jacob)...so maybe Edward should've held the reigns on the baby names.

24. Why do these movies even exist?

I wish I didn't return to my middle school years and re-watch these movies.

After 'Extremely Wicked' And 'The Stranger Beside Me,' We Now Understand The Criminal Mind Of Ted Bundy

1 hour and 50 minutes, plus 550 pages later.

Netflix recently released a movie in May called "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile" (2019), based on the life of Ted Bundy from his girlfriend's viewpoint.

In 1980, an author and former Seattle police officer, Ann Rule, published a book about her experience and personal, close friendship with Ted Bundy, called "The Stranger Beside Me."

These two sources together create an explosion of important information we either skim over or ignore about Ted Bundy. Watching this movie and reading this book can really open your eyes to who Ted Bundy really was. Yeah, there are the confession tapes on Netflix, too, but these other things can really tie it all into one big masterpiece of destruction.

I swear, it will blow your mind in different ways you never thought possible.

In the movie, "Extremely Wicked", Zac Efron stars as the infamous Ted Bundy, America's most notorious serial killer. He portrayed the murderer who kidnapped, killed, and raped 30 women or more. Personally, he made a great Ted Bundy, mannerisms and all. Lily Collins stars as Ted's girlfriend who was easily manipulated by Ted and believed that he was innocent for years.

The movie is told in the order that Liz, Ted's girlfriend, remembers.

In the book, "The Stranger Beside Me", Ann Rule writes about Ted Bundy, who used to be her old friend. They met while working at a crisis center in the state of Washington and were close ever since. Like Liz, Ann believed he was innocent and that he was incapable of these horrific crimes.

Ted Bundy had made both Liz and Ann fools. He easily manipulated and lied to both women about many things for years, his murders being "one" of them.

Okay, so we all know that Ted Bundy was absolutely guilty as hell and totally murdered those women. 30 women or more. He literally confessed to that, but researchers and authorities believe that number to be way higher.

But... you must know that the movie and the book tell two different stories that lead to the same ending. That's why it's so intriguing.

At one point, I couldn't stop watching the movie. Then, I bought Ann Rule's book and was completely attached to it. I couldn't put it down.

For me, Ted Bundy is interesting to me. Unlike most young girls today, I don't have a thing for him nor do I think he's cute or hot. I know that he used his charm and looks to lure women into his murderous trap. That's why it's so hard to understand why this movie and book created a new generation of women "falling in love" with Ted Bundy.

GROSS: He sodomized women with objects. He bludgeoned women with objects or his own hands. He was a necrophile. Look those up if you have not a clue of what they mean. That could change your mind about your own feelings for Ted Bundy.

After "Extremely Wicked" and "The Stranger Beside Me", I now understand the criminal mind of Ted Bundy. He was insane, but he was also smart, put together, educated, charming, and lots more. That's why I'm so interested in why his brain was the way it was.

The criminal mind is an interesting topic for me anyway, but for Ted Bundy, it was amazing to learn about.

I highly recommend both the movie and the book I quickly read in two weeks! If you want answers, they are there.
