The Twilight Saga: New Moon Extended Edition Blu-ray review

New Moon

Written by Melissa Rosenberg
Based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer

Lionsgate Films / Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13
130 minutes
Release Date: October 23, 2018

The opening dream scene in the meadow gets me every time as Bella sees herself as old with Edward. I think it is a beautiful concept as Bella (Kristen Stewart) worries about aging while her true vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) stays forever young at seventeen, and will not turn her. It’s Bella’s birthday, and as much as she “doth” protests, everyone reminds her of the celebrating. She really doesn’t get Edward’s attitude, until her disastrous birthday party at the Cullens where she almost becomes dessert that Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) explains it all to her.

Catherine Hardwicke‘s Twilight started the craze in 2008 with teens everywhere taking sides as either Team Edward or Team Jacob. Based on the books by Stephenie Meyer, young Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) was the envy of every girl, to have the heart of sparkly vampire, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and abs-olutely hunky Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).

TV Review: Marvel’s Jessica Jones 1.1 “AKA Ladies Night”

Marvel Jessica Jones Netflix series Krysten Ritter

Marvel’s Jessica Jones
Episode 1.1 “AKA Ladies Night”
Created by Melissa Rosenberg
Starring Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, David Tennant
Netflix
Premiere date: November 20, 2015

Marvel’s Jessica Jones starts off with a dramatic bang. Taking place in the same dark Manhattan of fellow Netflix seriesDaredevil that contrasts so heavily with the New York that Iron Man and the Avengers saved just a little while ago, the grit and overt noir feels more like something out of Christopher Nolan’s depiction of The Dark Knight. The difference here is that Ra’as Al Ghul’s Detective is 5’9”, female, and doesn’t need a mask to intimidate the baddies.

The first episode, “AKA Ladies Night,” does some interesting things when it comes to its depiction of women. Jessica Jones takes place in a woman’s world. The first ten minutes of the show is bereft of male-speaking roles. The next five introduces a father trying in vain to cope with his daughter’s missing status by attempting to fix a door, while his wife, deals with the business. The next male character you meet is likewise neutered: he’s a video artist. Number 3 is a pathetically portrayed Alpha Male — contrast that with the title super heroine in Krysten Ritter, a woman running the board room in Carrie-Anne Moss top-rate lawyer, and the missing female’s mother, who’s clearly running things at home. This is a wholly different paradigm for the Marvel Cinematic Universe that started off with the male chauvinist Tony Stark in Iron Man less than a decade ago. As comic book content goes, it’s a whole new bag.

Marvel's Jessica Jones

Disney/Marvel is not wasting any time finding writers to pen the scripts for the four superhero series that will air exclusively on Netflix. Yesterday we reported that Cabin In The Woods writer/director Drew Goddard would pen DareDevil. Goddard had worked on the Cabin script with Joss Whedon, so the hiring seemed fitting.

Now it is being reported that Dexter (up until season 4) and all of the Twilight film adaptations writer Melissa Rosenberg will pen Marvel’s Jessica Jones for Netflix.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

It’s safe to say that the two Breaking Dawn movies are the most anticipated installments of the Twilight film franchise. Fans of the books know exactly what happens between the human Bella and her vampire love Edward in Stephenie Meyer’s final book, and thanks to all the internet buzz on it, everyone else in the world knows it too.

Spoilers ahead for Breaking Dawn (as if this information is avoidable):

Ok, we know in Breaking Dawn that Bella and Edward get hitched and that they actually consummate the marriage, even though in the Twilight universe, vampire-human sex is quite dangerous to the human. There’s a romantic wedding night for the couple that ends in some kind of feather fiasco. And, Edward manages to impregnate his wife, but having a half-vamp baby inside her is yet another physical danger to Bella.

‘Twilight Saga’ Writer Melissa Rosenberg To Pen ‘Highlander’ Remake
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

A new writer is set to take on Summit Entertainment’s remake of the 1986 fantasy favorite, Highlander, which tells the story of a group of immortals who can only kill each other via decapitation, and acquire their foe’s powers whenever they take their life.

The studio has entered into negotiations with Melissa Rosenberg to craft the latest draft of the script, which has seen a few writers work on it already. Rosenberg is best known for her work on The Twilight Saga, where she penned the scripts for Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and both parts of Breaking Dawn

This may make Highlander fans uneasy and worried about a remake they likely don’t even want to see to begin with, but fear not. While the Twilight franchise is a painful blemish on cinematic history, Rosenberg has some much better credits to her name, namely the eleven episodes of Dexter that she has written.
