Cedric Diggory vs Edward Cullen Goblet of Fire Robert Pattinson

Now that our era is coming to a close, we Harry Potter fans are reflecting on the last seven films as we prepare to say goodbye. For me, there’s one little pretty significant bit that stands out in my mind: the day we were introduced to Robert Pattinson as Cedric Diggory. Twilight fans are going to hate me a little bit for the next 800 or so words, and for that I’m only marginally sorry. It’s true, Pattison was just better as Cedric Diggory than he is as Edward Cullen. That’s just a fact you’re going to have to make peace with – at least for this week because for Potter fans, it’s our last hurrah and you’ll just have to let us have this one for now. We could have remembered Pattinson forever as Cedric – our beloved Cedric, may he rest in peace – but now, those memories are clouded with images of a pale-faced moper in aleather jacket.

Since I know those on the other side of the fence will want to know where the evidence for my “preposterous” claim stems from, let’s start with the easiest part: the superficial evaluation. Since they’re both portrayed by Pattinson, they’ve obviously got that signature modelesque smolder going for them, except that one of them looks like he’s actually a member of the living. Yeah, sure, vampires are “sexy” in a forbidden fruit, taboo sort of way, but let’s be real. Given the real-life choice between an adorable young man with flushed cheeks and a courageous heart or a pale, sparkling, sickly-looking undead guy who seems to have a greater affinity for Lancome lipstains than you do (oh, and when he gets frisky he may just try to suck your blood, NBD) how many of you would actually choose Cullen? In real life? Be honest. (Even if you’re emphatically saying “Me, me, ME!” in your head right now, I don’t believe you.)

Okay, so maybe you’re into the sparkle-goth-sickly look. Fine. But let’s talk about the sheer difficulty of spending time with a vampire versus spending time with a talented wizard. Vampires’ special powers: they can turn you into a vampire, they’re allergic to sunlight, they live forever, some possess the ability to read minds, they don’t breath, they can’t eat human food and it’s harder for them to go “vegetarian” than it is for a heroin addict to give up junk. Now before we get to Cedric, let’s just unpack this little suitcase. This all means no beach days spent sunning yourself on the sand FOREVER. No keeping secrets (even tiny little ones) to yourself FOREVER. No romantic dinner parties FOREVER.

Eclipse Edward Cullen Robert PattinsonOn the other hand, wizards aren’t so complicated. What’s their special talent? They can do MAGIC. That’s it – no other complications. They can create light out of nothing. They can send letters that talk. They can fly through the air on broomsticks. They can fight DRAGONS. They drive flying cars. They can defend themselves with nothing more than a little wooden stick. And they don’t have to run from the sun or fight their own instincts or endure living forever to do it.

Finally, Cedric is just infinitely more irresistible. He’s uncommonly good. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, while the rest of Hogwarts is vilifying Harry for being chosen as a champion for the TriWizard Tournament, Cedric stands up for his rival, asking his friends not to terrorize the younger student. He helps Harry to decode a clue for the tournament; hec defends Harry when his father accosts Harry for some bad press coverage; and finally, when he and Harry both reach the TriWizard cup, he insists that Harry be the winner as a thank-you for Harry saving him twice in the maze. Of course on top of all that, he’s an excellent student, top of his class and beloved by lots of ladies. Basically, he’s a certifiable babe.

Edward on the other hand, does good deeds and protects his ladylove, for sure. But he’s such a mopey brooder. He stays up all night listening to indie music because he literally can’t sleep. He drives his collection of cars like a speed demon, which is only cool in Fast and Furious movies. He speaks like he’s still stuck in a former century and retains those difficult qualities of other literary characters like Edward Rochester from Jane Eyre, who’s romantic in theory, but not practice. Edward is self-loathing, sees himself as a monster, and is incredibly stubborn. Sure, he’s a romantic at heart, but you have to get past this thick, dark, emo exterior to get there. No thank you.

I can acknowledge that this is a matter of opinion (but mine is right) and it comes down to a certain distinction. Whether you’re the type of girl who prefers old James Dean movies to old Paul Newman movies (well, actually that’s kind of a difficult choice). Or whether you’re the girl who always dated dude with motorcycles and tattoos (hello, heartbreak) or the girl who dated nice guys with ambitions and tons of friends (okay, most of us have done both). Or whether you’re the girl who reads Vampire books or the girl who reads the best, most wonderful, magical series of books written in the last 20 years. Well, sorry Twi-hards, that last one’s the clincher. I’m going to have to call this one for the Potter kids.

Edward Cullen Bachelor Party!

Here’s an interesting article on the possibilities of Edward Cullen’s bachelor party, found at

Breaking Dawn Kitchen 280x186 Imagine an Edward Cullen Bachelor Party! breaking dawn wedding

We all know from reading  Breaking Dawn, the books description of Edward’s bachelor party was pretty lackluster but then again it was according to Bella. So how about imagining our own Cullen-style bachelor party!

And in anticipation for the first part of the final installment, we thought it would be fun to plan these nights of debauchery for Edward and Bella.

First up: Eddie’s bachelor bash. You don’t actually expect us to believe that his last night as a free vamp was spent hunting (as it says in the book), do you? Of course not, there was bound to been some throwing back of blood shots (spiked, of course) at the very least.

And even though the party isn’t given much attention in the novel, the upcoming movie will include a glimpse of what goes down during the celebration.

“What happens at the bachelor party stays at the bachelor party, you know what I’m talking about?” Jackson Rathbone, who plays Edward’s brother, Jasper,spilled during a Houston radio show interview.

Well, that doesn’t exactly sound like a night of hunting, does it?

Now, before the whole “Edward’s a gentleman, he’d never do that to Bella” crap starts, remember, this is all in the name of fun. So what king of fun should they engage in? We have a few ideas:

The Hangover, Cullen Style: Emmett, Jasper and Carlisle take Edward to Vegas for a reckless night on the town. Things get crazy when Emmett spikes the blood Jell-O shots. They wake up the next morning and (gasp!) Edward is missing. Cue ensuing drama.

Strip Club: Can you blame Edward? He’s only human…well, not really. A lap dance is like a bachelor party rite of passage. And you can bet the ladies would be fans of the Cullens and their…um…stone-like skin.

Sporting Event: The Cullens are pretty into baseball. So it’s not out of the question that they would take Edward to a ball game where they can pretend to drink beer and chow down on hot dogs.

Hunting 2.0: OK, so maybe they really will go hunting. But it shouldn’t be their typical routine. Our idea: strip hunting. The last person to catch a deer has to remove an article of clothing. You know Jacob would be all over this (if he’s invited, of course)—he never backs down to a shirtless hunting adventure.

This is hilarious! We can dream can’t we? Click here to vote what you think would be a kicka$$ Cullen-style party.

You’re the Best Dads Ever, Dads of ‘Twilight’

Here’s an article on the dad’s of Twilight, found at

http://www.nextmovie.com/blog/twilight-dads/

I am not a father, nor do I even pretend to know how to be a good one. (It involves owning a briefcase and knowing how to throw a baseball back and forth, I believe?)

However, I do know “The Twilight Saga.”So with Father’s Day coming up this weekend, I’m paying tribute to the dads from the series.

But who is the best “Twilight” dad? (Besides all of them?) Allow me to lay out the facts.

Charlie Swan, Carlisle Cullen, Billy Black and (future screen daddy) Edward Cullen are the men under the microscope. While everyone has their own ideas on what makes the best father, I’ve done some in-depth research (thanks, Ask Jeeves!) and these are the qualities most will agree on:

They should be of high integrity, but never high on other things. They should be able to provide for their kids, meaning they need some cash money — Benjamins, if you will. And a father needs to be responsible, offer guidance, and spend quality time with children. These are proven techniques that keep daughters (and sons) off the stripper pole. Let’s break down how these four fellows have done so far:

Children

Summit

Charlie: Bella Swan, 24 (looks 18 for eternity)
Carlisle: Adopted vampires Edward, Jasper, Alice, Emmett and Rosalie
Billy: Jacob (21), twins Rebecca and Rachel (25)
Edward: Renesmee Cullen, 5 (in human-vampire hybrid years)

Relationship Status

Charlie: Divorced
Carlisle: Married 90 years
Billy: Widower
Edward: Newlywed

Career

Charlie: Police chief
Carlisle: Physician
Billy: Quileute council leader and disability
Edward: Student for over 90 years

Net Worth

Charlie: Earns between $35,605 to $49,640 a year
Carlisle: Forbes estimates $34.1 billion
Billy: Median income of Native American households is $35,343. That’s a fair guess since he’s essentially unemployed.
Edward: Billions in family money

Summit

Parenting Approach

Charlie: Hands-off. Only sees daughter on holidays until she’s 17. Shows as much emotion as a vampire, so it makes sense that his daughter falls for one.
Carlisle: Permissive and lenient. Allows his adopted offspring to do anything short of murder and pays their bills well into adulthood.
Billy: Authoritative. Doesn’t give Jacob many choices, only allowing him to be a wolf when he grows up.
Edward: Reads daughter’s mind. She will never be able to get away with anything.

Quality Time

Charlie: Spends most of his time working and fishing, unless Bella makes dinner for him.
Carlisle: Despite being a busy doctor, finds time to play baseball, throw parties and fight evil vampires with his family.
Billy: Unemployed, he has all the time in the world to hang with Jacob.
Edward: Still a new parent, he makes time to take his daughter hunting, when he’s not occupied with saving her life from Volturi.

Family Planning

Summit

Charlie: Started family on whim and wasn’t active in raising daughter.
Carlisle: Randomly adopts children like he’s Angelina Jolie in a third-world country.
Billy: Seemed to plan well, until his wife suddenly passed away.
Edward: Considered abortion and doesn’t practice safe sex. To be fair, vampires have no bodily fluids, so how could he know?

Fatherly Advice

Charlie: “The right thing isn’t always real obvious. Sometimes the right thing for one person is the wrong thing for someone else. So… good luck figuring that out.”
Carlisle: “Don’t get your family slaughtered for pride.”
Billy: “What I meant to say was, don’t do what you’re doing.”
Edward: “You’re awfully small to be so hugely irritating.”

Pole Probability

Summit

Charlie: High. Being an absent and unresponsive father can give women “daddy issues” and create strippers (allegedly). If Bella hadn’t fallen for a vampire, her life would look more like “Welcome to the Rileys.”
Carlisle: Medium. When you adopt grown children, it can be a grab bag of potential psych issues. Still, Carlisle is really rich, smart, loving and can beat up any pimp, drug dealer or strip club owner.
Billy: High. Not totally his fault since his wife died when his kids were young. Still, he’s not close with his daughters and his son is constantly taking off his clothes in public for free.
Edward: Medium. When Jacob, a much older man, “imprints” on Renesmee, Eddie still allows his daughter to see him. Kind of creepy and sends the wrong message for healthy relationships. However, they’re rich and she’ll have a strong education, so she won’t need the money for college.

June 20,2011 marks what would be the 110th birthday of one of the lead characters in theTwilight Saga — Edward Cullen!

Edward was born on this day in 1901 in Chicago, Illinois.   Both of Edward’s biological parents died during the first wave of Influenza in 1918.  Before Edward’s mother,Elizabeth, passed she begged their doctor, Carlisle Cullen, if he would “…. do everything in your power. What others cannot do, that is what you must do for my Edward.”

It is believed that Edward’s mother may have known that Carlisle was different from the others in the hospital.  Edward was the first human that Carlisle turned into a Vampire, which ultimately lead to the Cullen Coven …. and you know the rest Breaking Dawn icon wink Happy 110th Birthday Edward Anthony Masen Cullen! edward cullen

Amazing Fanmade New Moon Video!

I’ve been searching through a tons of fanmade videos from youtube and found one that I truly just love. It’s very moving and expresses so much emotion in it. It is probably my favorite new moon fanmade video of all time! Enjoy!!!

Here’s the info/description of the video first:

So, first, this is for an audition for a collab group…
And i know this isn’t my best video, but i couldn’t find better, cuz all my good vids, are collab parts :S

And, second, this is an AU video…
What if Edward cullen Died at in Italy with the Volturi ?
Well if he died, Bella would be soooo crushed !!
And that’s what the storyline is about…

Bella can’t stop thinking that Edward died. She sees him everywhere, when he is not there, it’s all in her head…
Jacob is there for her, but she just can’t forget about Edward. When Jake tries to kiss her, she refuses, cuz she remembers her kissing Edward…
At the end of the video, Bella is doing some motorbike and sees him, while she was going really fast. By seeing him, she loses control of the motorbike, falls, and dies.
( To make a happy ending ) Bella wakes up in Heaven, and she lives happily ever after with the one she love and will always love, Edward Cullen…

I hope you like the storyline, and the edditing…It took me quite a long time to make Edward disappear in the clips everytime…But i like the outcome 🙂

Robert Pattinson on ‘Twilight’ finale: ‘It’s the end of an era’

Here’s an interview with Robert Pattinson, found at

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/movies/2011/01/robert-pattinson-on-twilight-finale-its-the-end-of-an-era.html

Rob,jpg

Public speaking has never been Robert Pattinson’s favorite part of his job. But presenting the Golden Globe to director Susanne Bier for her drama “In a Better World” Sunday night proved to be a welcome respite for the actor, who’s knee deep in the middle of filming “Breaking Dawn,” the final installment of the “Twilight” saga, which will be split into two parts.

“It’s been really hard shooting both films at the same time,” admitted the 24-year-old star, moments before he had run backstage to present his award with “Tron” star Olivia Wilde. “But it’s the end of an era.”

That era certainly will be one that Summit Entertainment, the films’ distributor, not to mention the franchise’s devoted fans, will be sorry to see go. Starting with 2008’s “Twilight,” the fantasy romance that first saw Pattinson’s handsome, brooding vampire encounter his mortal love, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), the movie series has taken in roughly $1.8 billion at the worldwide box office, as audiences lined up to see Swan wrestle with her feelings for her immortal boyfriend and her best friend, Jacob (Taylor Lautner), a werewolf, over the course of the next two films, 2009’s “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and 2010’s “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.”

At the start of the first part of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” Bella consents to Edward’s marriage proposal — Edward’s condition if he is to grant Bella’s request that he transform her into a vampire — and the young couple are wed before heading to a remote island getaway for a honeymoon.

Speaking by phone this month, director Bill Condon, who’s helming both installments of the finale, said he has been thrilled with what he’s seen from his leads. “All the characters are moving [in this chapter],” he said. “It’s really about the passage from adolescence to adulthood, and they all seem energized by that. It’s the stuff they are all connecting to in their lives.”

As for Pattinson specifically, Condon added, “Now he’s dealing with a character who’s like him. The final movie allows us to step behind the curtain of what it’s like to be a vampire. It doesn’t seem that exotic anymore; It’s trying to be more real.”

The director, though, was reticent to share any details of the production, which is filming in both New Orleans and Vancouver, Canada, with a jaunt to an island off the coast of Brazil — a location that might in the end prove the most memorable to Condon, because the entire cast and crew needed for the honeymoon scene was stranded after a long day of filming.

“It was incredible. We got caught in the middle of this huge rainstorm — I’ll remember it forever,” Condon said. “Eighty people sleeping on the floor of the set. We couldn’t leave.”

Edward Cullen Spotted on 1800’s Ship Manifest at Age 25

Here’s an older article on the name Edward Cullen.

This is an authentic ship manifest with “Edward Cullen” listed on the passenger manifest from the 1800’s at Castle Garden, a historical site in New York that was like Ellis Island for immigrants.

Castle Gardens still have the archives of people entering America, and reader Michelle sent this amazing coincidence of Edward Cullen appearing in these historical ledgers–

I live in NY and I took the English Regents today. One of the essay topics was about Castle Garden, a building in lower Manhattan that was like Ellis Island. It interested me so much I went on the Castle Garden website. On the homepage they have a list of passengers that were on their way to Castle Garden. It just so happens that Edward Cullen was aboard the ship!

Robert Pattinson Named Best Screen Vampire

When the word ‘Vampire’  is mentioned, most people think Dracula or some other scary monster. But since The Twilight Saga, times have changed, and for the better if you ask me.  With shows likeTrue Blood and The Vampire Diaries, the vamps are getting hotter. Well our super suave, sexy and humble vampire extraordinaire, Edward Cullen has been recognized as the Best Screen Vampire!

Robert Pattinson, The Twilight Saga (2008-)

Hard to credit, perhaps, but Stephenie Meyer’s blockbusting gothic romances have made R-Patz the most successful screen vampire of all time, outselling previous title holders Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in the Anne Rice adaptation Interview With the Vampire. Hardened horror aficionados may balk, but hordes of Twi-hard fans have swooned to Edward Cullen’s otherworldly charms, marvelling at the way his skin glitters in the sunlight, and dreaming of dying (and being reborn) in his sensitively pallid arms. Chastity never seemed so attractive.

And so bada$$. Check out the other 9 Best Screen Vampires here.

Entertainment Weekly names Edward Cullen among the 100 Greatest Characters of the Last 20 Years

HollywoodNews.com: It must be the new rage—popular magazines supplementing talk of real people with discussion of fictional characters. Entertainment Weekly is the most recent publication to rank one of Stephenie Meyer’s brood, having named Edward Cullen as one of the 100 Greatest Characters of the Last 20 Years as part of this week’s cover feature.

“Who says vampires are scary?” the section headline reads, “Sometimes they’re just dreamy teen idols.” All this after it announces that Stephenie Meyer’s most beloved vamp ranked in at #53. Though the write-up isn’t shy about suggesting that Robert Pattinson the actor may be responsible for the memorability of Edward Cullen the vampire, both Twi-hards and Twi-haters would agree that certain aspects of his character (e.g., being brooding and mysterious, gentlemanly but unattainable, unfailingly devoted to Bella) hold the most appeal to women.

Said Pattinson of Edward Cullen “If you played it straight-out manic-depressive, every young girl watching it would have been like, “Um, I don’t know about that.’ So I tried to make it as much as possible like a 17-year-old guy who had this purgatory inflicted upon him.” One thing’s for certain—however Rob decided to approach the role, he got it right.

The Entertainment Weekly ranking comes in the wake of a recent Forbes Magazine feature naming Carlisle Cullen the wealthiest fictional character in the world. What could be next for Meyer’s characters? A Vogue feature naming Rosalie Hale the most beautiful?
