Now With Rifftrax: ‘Twilight: New Moon’

Tom Cheredar   |

2010-03-21_twilight_rifftraxI’m going to do my best not to insult the many (dedicated) fans of Twilight who visit Geeks of Doom, but I will say that the only reason I watched the first movie was because there was a Rifftrax audio file available.

What’s Rifftrax you say?

It’s hilarious audio track featuring commentary of a recent movie. It’s also put together by the same guys who did Mystery Science Theater 3000 — the cult television program about a man and his robot sidekicks who are trapped on a space station by an evil scientist and forced to watch a selection of bad movies. Their commentary is what redeems those flicks.

While I’m not *saying* New Moon, which was released yesterday out on DVD and Blu-ray, is a horrible piece of garbage, there are people who feel this way. So, the Rifftrax team has released commentary for the film for those people. For a reasonable $3.99, it can transform that experience to one of pleasurable ridicule and laughter.

Geek Discussion: 82nd Annual Academy Award Winners & Losers!

Oscars

As always, we like to have the results of the big awards ceremonies here for all to see, and tonight was the biggest of them all: the 82nd annual Academy Awards.

This, the king of all awards shows, has faced much criticism the last few years, and their nominations this year did not help bring validity to their cause. Many of the films and actors were very deserving of their nominations, but many others were passed over in lieu of some big box office successes of questionable overall quality. And though they made a valiant effort to increase the excitement of the show with 10 Best Picture nominations, the end result was frustrating to we the film lovers of the world?

In the end, some fantastic films and performances were justly awarded, and as always, there were a few that rubbed the wrong way. Continue on over to the other side to see all of the final results!

‘The Twilight Saga’ Star Taylor Lautner May Also Star In A ‘Vision Quest’ Remake

Vision Quest

Not too long ago it was reported that Taylor Lautner, star of Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, had been cast as the lead in Paramount’s planned teen action flick Max Steel (Read: Resident ‘Twilight’ Wolf Pup Taylor Lautner To Become ‘Max Steel’). It appears now that the 17-year-old actor didn’t stop there: E! Online is reporting that Lautner is now also in some talks to take on the lead in a remake of 1985’s Vision Quest.

The original Vision Quest told the story of a mediocre high school wrestler (played by Matthew Modine) who decides that he needs to do something that people will remember, which turns out to be beating the undefeated best wrestler in the entire state. The goal is a seemingly impossible one, and is even hard due to his need to drop down two weight classes to pull it off. Things also get a little complicated on this quest of his, when his parents take in a much more mature 21-year-old drifter (Linda Fiorentino), who he falls in love with.

The Big Question: To Split ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’ In Half Or Not?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

As we’ve all known was a very likely possibility, it is being reported that Summit Entertainment is deciding whether or not to split The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — the final movie in the franchise (supposedly) — into two movies.

When Twilight was first peeking its head out, many said that it was going to be the next Harry Potter franchise, and to this many giggles (myself included) were had. And while the movie have been no where even close to as good as the Harry Potter films thus far, with The Twilight Saga: New Moon approaching $500 Million worldwide, you just can’t deny that it’s throwing down the same numbers.

With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, they decided to split it in two in order to cover a lot more of the story, and of course, to make a whole new un-godly amount of money that they would never have made if they only did one film. This is also being done with The Hobbit. Naturally, it has always been a question as to whether Twilight would take the same path once they reached their final film. Now that they have established themselves as a heavy hitter, it comes as no shock that Summit Entertainment has this choice to make.

Have Fun Studying With ‘Twilight’ Test Prep Follow-Up ‘Defining New Moon’

All the haters can say what they will about the Twilight franchise, but there’s one positive aspect about the whole phenomenon that can’t be denied — it’s prompted teenage girls to read more.

Young girls (and their moms) are not only picking up the Twilight books, but also literary classics like Wuthering Heights, and the series has sparked interest in the horror/fantasy genre in general, serving as a gateway to more books like Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire series (from which HBO’s True Blood is based) and more.

Twilight‘s also become helpful in the test prep department with Defining Twilight, a vocabulary workbook to help students prepare for tests like the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT.

Now, just released this week is the New Moon-inspired follow-up Defining New Moon, with over 700 vocabulary words and synonyms found on the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT tests.

‘Twilight: New Moon’ Volturi Clip & TV Spot

By CrueChik

Happy New Moon Monday my little Twihards! Usually, Mondays suck hard, but this one, ah, this one does no sucking, unless of course you like that sort of thing. But as usual, I digress…I’ve got TWO delectable Twilight: New Moon videos to share with you this fine day. WOOOOOfreakingHOOOOOO!!!!

The first is a new TV spot, called “Save Her,” with drool worthy clips of everyone’s favorite wolfie, Jake – ah yes, beautiful, shirtless Jake – phasing, jumping and telling Bella he’s got a vampire to kill, as well as my Edward (yes, my Edward, deal with it Bella) heading to the Volturi for a little conference and a whole lot more eye candy…see for yourself here below.

And speaking of the nasty, but ever so wickedly delightful, Volturi, my second video find of the day gives us a look at humans are food, not friends vamp, Aro, trying to decide what to do with Bellsy. Naturally, the plan doesn’t include any pleasantries…and Edward swiftly comes to the rescue (at about 26 seconds into the video, I know this, ‘cause I keep pausing it there and watching it in slow motion) only to be…well…go watch it, it’s much better than anything I can tell you.

Hold onto your hats cats and kittens, this is some huge freakin’ info hot off the press release… Big huge colossal breaking Twilight Saga news!

Summit Entertainment is giving Twilight fans the chance to meet cast members of The Twilight Saga: New Moon with a nationwide cast tour, hitting 15 cities!

The nationwide tour kicks off on the left coast in Los Angeles, CA at the Hollywood and Highland Center on Friday, November 6th. This special event will include performances by several bands from the New Moon Soundtrack including Death Cab for Cutie and Band of Skulls. Afterwards, fans will be able to attend a Question and Answer forum with many of the New Moon cast members (holy sparkly vampires…could I BE more excited?)

But have no fear if you don’t live in LA LA Land…this event will be making stops in 15 cities across the US of A from November 6 through November 19. Fans in each city can participate in New Moon activities (not sure what this will include, but I for one will willingly allow Edward to suck my err…kiss or any of the Wolf Pack boys to imprint on me) and vie for film-related prizes. As in the LA event, a Q&A session will be the finale of each event. Certain cities will also have select New Moon soundtrack artists performing during the event.
