Robert & Kristen: Painting a Masterpiece with Cigarette Butts

This review of Twilight Movie by Some Random Guy was quite amusing. While I didn't find Twilight quite as *comical* as this guy did, I do agree with his praise for Kristen & Rob for having made the most of the task at hand:
"I give props to the actors for keeping a straight face while saying the most cheesy and manufactured lines I’ve heard since Cheetos. The female lead actress Kristen Stewart managed to bring life into a fairly flat and static character. Robert Pattinson played the stereotypical vampire, handsome and strong. Pattinson gets the most respect from me for keeping a straight face while saying, “Get away from me, I don’t want to hurt you.”

With such stereotypical roles - vampires and teenagers - I find it unfair to judge the actors on this work. Imagine if you asked Michelangelo to paint a masterpiece with only cigarette butts! Of course the masterpiece would be only black and white. So in reality, we only see what the director wants the actors to portray."

  1. I read this yesterday, and while part of me wanted to freak out at the author (obviously the Twi-Hard in me), after the second reading it was pretty funny and I had to admit I agreed with some parts of it. I'm glad he appreciated Kristen, she's my fave!
