Episode 170 Transcript:

Elsie: You’re listening to the A Stunning Mess Podcast, your cozy consolation pay attention. This week we’re dissecting a favourite consolation watch film for decor and residential inspiration. That is an ongoing collection for us, and this week’s choice is Twilight. We’re masking the unique 2008 film in addition to the remainder of the saga. So Emma, describe the film Twilight for individuals who haven’t watched it. 

Emma: All proper, so when you don’t know what Twilight is, I don’t even know. The place, to start with, you, however it’s about vampires and a human falls in love with a vampire. They usually’re in highschool. Effectively, she is, he’s clearly actually previous cuz he’s a vampire, so there’s that. After which there are additionally werewolves and there’s a love triangle with the werewolf and it’s set within the northwest, so it’s Portland. Gosh, I don’t even know. I’m similar to, it’s about vampires. All people is targeted right here. 

Elsie: It’s in Oregon, in Forks, Oregon, which is an actual metropolis. We’ll speak about that later. It’s a slam dunk, dwelling run banger. 

Emma: You’ve learn the books, proper? Or no? 

Elsie: I’ve learn a number of the books. 

Emma: Okay. Did you learn the primary one? 

Elsie: I learn the primary one and I learn the brand new bizarre one with the opposite perspective. Keeley informed me all about that. So Keeley has taught me 95% of what I knew about Twilight got here from her. I heard that when you wanna be a fan, you could be referred to as a TWI Onerous, otherwise you could be referred to as a fan Pire. Fan Pire? These are cute, proper? Okay, so Carson made me learn the guide, it’s referred to as Midnight Solar. So the Midnight Solar is identical as Twilight however from the Vampire Edwards’s perspective as a substitute of from Bella’s perspective. And he or she stated it was allegedly a lot sexier, perhaps greater than the unique, however not like the opposite books we learn in any respect. I don’t suppose any of those books are like the opposite books we learn in any respect. But it surely was enjoyable, I feel it’s a journey. I needed to learn them simply because I feel that Stephanie Meyer is fascinating and I like simply studying about her profession. She has a type of actually fascinating, romantic writer tales. She considered the thought of Twilight from a Dream. And that could be a very romantic freaking story. So, anyway the place can we begin with this episode, Emma? How can we get into it? 

Emma: I assume let’s speak in regards to the coloring of the film usually. 

Elsie: Oh my gosh. So I solely watched these motion pictures I feel a yr or two in the past. It was undoubtedly throughout my biking part. In order that was not very way back. However the unique first time that I noticed Twilight, I keep in mind particularly I used to be on an airplane. And you know the way generally whenever you’re flying on an airplane, you want to look at another person’s film? Once you’re bored. Once you’re not watching a film, simply wanting over at another person’s film. And generally I watch nearly the entire film that means. So this was a type of occasions. and I used to be watching the unique Twilight and I simply couldn’t consider the coloring, just like the filter of how the primary film seems to be are so inexperienced. It’s like the entire thing takes place with a inexperienced solid, the entire film. Simply Google an image of the baseball scene when you wanna see an instance of how inexperienced it’s. It’s beautiful wanting. Very, very completely different from any film I’ve ever seen. And like you may say it’s tacky and dated, however I feel that it’s come round to the place it’s so unhealthy, it’s good now. I’d stand by it as type of a professional of the film, not a con. 

Emma: Yeah, and I don’t suppose I noticed this primary one in theaters, however I most likely noticed it throughout the first yr or two that it was out. And I keep in mind not loving the film. I’ve learn all of the books and beloved the books. Very enjoyable. 

Elsie: Have been you somewhat snob? Have been you somewhat highschool snob? What made you not love the film? 

Emma: No, I used to be undoubtedly in my early twenties. I needed to have been like 23 or 24, perhaps even 22, I don’t know. So no, I wasn’t in highschool or school. No, I simply keep in mind considering that the inexperienced filtering was simply form of bizarre. And in addition the primary film feels somewhat low-budget in a means that I wasn’t anticipating as a result of it was such a preferred guide. And I feel I used to be such a fan that I used to be anticipating the Avengers, like that form of price range and clearly they didn’t have that form of price range. 

Elsie: Keeley informed me that the price range for the Twilight motion pictures tried to take the Harry Potter followers for the following chapter, however the price range was nowhere shut. So I feel that is smart, I feel that comes by as prefer it’s an analogous sort of fandom. However yeah, I believed the primary film was form of sluggish. Even the motion scenes are form of sluggish, however I imply, clearly lovely in a responsible slash not responsible pleasure form of means. 

Emma: Yeah, what I’d say about how I really feel about it now, rewatching it lately and seeing the inexperienced filtering and similar to the garments and the way in which they’ve achieved the make-up and all of the issues. I really feel like I perceive extra now what they had been going for, and I find it irresistible. That is Bizarre and a time capsule and I feel it’s superior. They usually additionally did just a few fascinating selections for me. Like at any time when the vampires are strolling, not essentially the Collin crew, however the different three vampires who present up later and so they’re kind of the unhealthy guys. There’s an element the place they’re like strolling out of the forest to the baseball sport and you’ll inform that they’re form of gliding, they nonetheless have the actors transfer their legs. However they’re on some form of, Glider or one thing the place they’re really simply kind of floating. So it’s simply this bizarre surreal look the place you’re, you may see that they’re shifting their legs, however you understand that they’re not strolling like there’s one thing bizarre. And I simply suppose that was like a bizarre, fascinating selection that I favored and it form of set the vampires aside. There are different issues they did to set the vampires aside from human characters, however I don’t know, little particulars like that, I used to be like that is actually fascinating. I really feel like they made quite a lot of selections within the film that was enjoyable and so they’re bizarre, however it feels actually campy and enjoyable and a really cult basic, I’d say. 

Elsie: Yeah, very robust selections. I believed it aged very effectively in that means. Let’s speak about their MySpace hair. The actors, particularly the vampire actors, have excessive hairstyles which can be similar to a time capsule of the early two hundreds. I do know this film got here out in 2008, however the hairstyles to me appear older than that, and the garments could also be too. It’s how folks wore their hair once we had been in highschool and school. Simply hairstylist hair slash MySpace hair. And it additionally evolves by the collection, a number of the actors get completely different hairstyles and quite a lot of them are carrying wigs.

And I’ll say quite a lot of the wigs are unhealthy, so there are undoubtedly not all of the wigs that appear to be they’re seamless. However yeah, there’s one thing very MySpace about the entire thing. 

Emma: I feel it feels very emo. Additionally, the soundtrack, simply very teenage angst or younger grownup angst or regardless of the hairstyles, a number of the garments, a number of the performing, the soundtrack all feels prefer it actually matches that form of aesthetic of I’m Emo. 

Elsie: Sure. Sure. Oh, I’ve to let you know my greatest title drop ever, I’ve two really. So the primary one, so I’m so cool. I’ve two pals who had songs within the Twilight motion pictures, not the identical film however within the first film, our buddy’s band, it’s not a band anymore, on the time was referred to as Mute Math and so they carried out their tune from the primary Twilight film, it’s a fairly good placement. It’s like they’re strolling into the highschool as a pair for the primary time. Did you see it? Once you watched it? Did you discover? After I was first courting Jeremy, he carried out the tune with them on the Jay Leno present when Jay Leno was nonetheless having his present. And so it was like a really thrilling second in my twenties to see my boyfriend, he was simply enjoying the keyboard or no matter, however it was so cool. And it was as a result of they had been on this film, that they bought to do this late-night present. After which our different buddy sleeping eventually, Ryan did the tune for the marriage scene and it’s really in there twice. It’s within the wedding ceremony scene, after which they play it once more through the first intercourse scene on the honeymoon. It’s a very good placement. If I needed to say in my memoir on the finish of my life, like, when had been you the proudest of a buddy? It could most likely be after I watched that film, it was so epic, it was so particular. So anyway, yeah, there’s my title drop. You possibly can all be jealous. Okay, so anyway, we talked in regards to the MySpace hair, and we talked in regards to the filter. I used to be simply gonna say if we’re making a themed occasion for the primary film, I’d adorn it as The Promenade, it’s like a casino-themed promenade after which I’d serve mushroom ravioli as a result of that’s like part of the primary date. Yeah. I feel that might be fairly legit. 

Emma: Yeah, I feel so too. I additionally love all of the meals on the diner and simply the diner usually, it’s only a cute environment and it makes me consider, I feel it was referred to as denims in Buffalo, Missouri again once we had been rising up and our grandma would take us there once we had been there along with her on the weekends generally. And it’s now a distinct restaurant I don’t know what it’s now, however I’d at all times get grilled cheese and french fries. I used to be a child. And it simply was very like a diner and it was nice. 

Elsie: Sure, so backing up, let’s speak by all of our favourite units and rooms and homes within the film. I feel the diner is a superb place to begin as a result of I simply love motion pictures set in a small city is a factor that I completely adore. I feel it’s simply charming and it’s great and the diner, it’s a staple of any small city. In case you don’t have a diner the place you may order, like a Gilmore Ladies sort of diner then you definately don’t have it’s an important small-town enterprise to have, I feel.

Emma: It’s essential. Sure, you want that. The place are you going to take your grandkids to get grilled cheese?

Elsie: I have a tendency to like a diner in any film and in actual life, I’m at all times speaking about it. They usually get more durable and more durable to search out in sure components of the nation. They’re not simple to search out. It’s very particular. The second place that I wanna speak about is the Swan home. So it’s Bella Swan’s father’s dwelling and I believed that this was the proper small-town farmhouse. It seems to be like a median home. It jogs my memory of lots of my pals’ homes that I visited as a toddler, like whenever you’re going to a party or having a sleepover, issues like that. It’s like the proper little home. And he tries to make her a bed room that’s like excellent for a teen, however he will get the age improper. 

Emma: Oh, I believed he had form of left issues in her room that was like from occasions she had visited prior to now and so they had been like youngster issues. It was form of like she hasn’t actually been right here in a short while, or, oh, she hasn’t seen her dad that a lot through the years. 

Elsie: That’s what I feel it’s speaking, when he’s like, you want purple, proper? And he or she’s like, yeah. It’s like that for all relations when you don’t see a toddler for six months, you would possibly see a very completely different youngster with fully new completely different pursuits. 

Emma: I do know sooner or later I’m gonna are available scorching with a princess gown and Goldie’s gonna be like, I’m over that. And I’ll be like, oh my gosh, what do I do now? 

Elsie: By no means. She’ll by no means be over it. Don’t even say that. Okay. So yeah, the Swan Home, additionally has the proper staircase to stroll down along with her promenade gown. So it’s a must to have a staircase. I believed it was an lovely home and the most effective ones. After which subsequent we have now to speak in regards to the colon home, so the twenties and in addition I feel thirty-year-old Elsie. I swear. I at all times thought this was my dream home. I used to Google footage of it and it was like my excellent dream home and this time after I re-watched it, I used to be like, oh, it’s similar to somewhat trendy home, it’s modified. It’s just like the, you know the way your childhood dwelling, you think about it a technique and then you definately return to drive by it and go to it, and also you notice that it seems to be completely different than the way it did in your reminiscence. That’s how the Collin home was for me. I nonetheless suppose it’s a dream home, however it’s perhaps not my dream home anymore, and it’s simply very trendy, like extra trendy. I feel I imagined it as or remembered it as extra cabin and fewer like a complete new construct.

Emma: Fascinating as a result of right here is my tackle it. I keep in mind seeing the film for the primary time and considering, what a stupendous home, I find it irresistible. That’s my dream home for positive, similar as you. After which through the years, I used to be like, oh yeah, that most likely wasn’t pretty much as good as I keep in mind it. After which I re-watched it and I used to be like, I feel I beloved this home much more than I beloved it in my twenties I’m like, I like this home. What was I considering I didn’t like about this home? And I’m like, I find it irresistible. Like a really trendy, cool home within the forest. I’m like, I find it irresistible. Yeah, it could not be very sensible for my life and like what I do for a residing, cuz there’s no means you may take good images in that home, there are too many bushes throughout it. Belief me, I used to stay in a home with quite a lot of bushes round it and also you simply can not take nice meals images for meals running a blog. So it wouldn’t work for me. But when that’s an Airbnb, I’d love to go to someday. 

Elsie: Yeah, no, I nonetheless suppose it’s a ten. It’s simply not my previous dream home anymore, however it’s nonetheless a ten. And I’d say quite a lot of the artwork in the home, I used to be dissecting it scene by scene after I was watching it yesterday and quite a lot of the artwork is basically tacky. Quite a lot of the artwork is like, I’d say a zero or a two out of 10. It’s not timeless in any respect. The commencement cap, the large commencement cap body with all his hundred commencement caps, I’d say is like the most effective artwork in the home. It’s cool, it’s significant, it seems to be nice and it’s bizarre, I like that. 

Emma: Yeah, and he says it’s like a private joke, however it additionally as a viewer you’re very instantly like, oh, they by no means have folks over to the home as a result of the opposite, he would instantly be like, why have they got 1,000,000 commencement caps? 

Elsie: Sure, the opposite factor that bothered me a lot, like Mike can’t let it go from the entire film is that he doesn’t have a mattress in his bed room. Effectively, yeah, he doesn’t sleep. However do you severely by no means plan on ever having somebody to this home ever? 

Emma: I don’t suppose they did. I don’t suppose they plan to have people over ever. 

Elsie: Since their life is designed like a canopy I simply thought that they might have a mattress of their bed room. I simply thought it was complicated. 

Emma: I get that, but when I did have to cover who I used to be on a regular basis, I feel it could really feel good to have a house to go dwelling to that wasn’t a canopy. One sanctuary the place I don’t have to cover, you understand. 

Elsie: Okay, I modified my reply, you’re proper. That could be a good reply and so candy. Yeah. I like his classical music factor. I like all of the information. If I had been him, I’d put a mattress in there simply in case, however I assume he is aware of he doesn’t want to do this cuz they will see the longer term anyway. I do love the home although it’s very distinctive. It’s a singular, memorable film home and whoever lives in it’s their actual dwelling, which I’m jealous of. 

Emma: Sure, me too. Apparently, it’s nonetheless my dream home much more than earlier than. I like a contemporary homes. 

Elsie: Yeah, I might undoubtedly see you in that home, I feel it’s lovely. And the porches, in my reminiscence seemed like a cabin extra. And what I checked out now, I used to be like, that was most likely constructed like final yr, you understand? It seemed very new. So let’s speak about a number of the units from the opposite motion pictures, simply because for me, that is undoubtedly a consolation rewatch, however there will not be as many rooms to speak about as there are in a number of the different motion pictures that we do. So I wanna speak about my favourite factors from all the films. I like the Small City, I like the movie show that they created for the small city. I believed that was actually nostalgic and my primary favourite visible second from any of the films is certainly the marriage. I feel that the way in which the white flowers hanging, the way in which that all the things is, it’s like, the final word dream wedding ceremony. If I needed to simply design a dream wedding ceremony, I’d simply take an image of that and simply not mess with the rest. Simply print off the image from the Twilight film and take it to the forest, can’t be topped. It’s simply so lovely and basic wanting, it’s unimaginable. After which one other, enjoyable architectural second from the films is the honeymoon, trip dwelling. Type of like they’ve their very own little personal island trip. 

Emma: It’s like a breezy seaside, you understand, like when you had been at a really fancy personal resort, it could be like that form of vibe.

Elsie: Yeah, they’ve a beachfront home with nobody there, and so they had been like swimming bare within the ocean and it’s magical. It’s a really lovely home too. It’s very trendy additionally, however in somewhat little bit of a extra coastal means and really lovely. 

Emma: I additionally love that vibe cuz I like the John Wick home, as you understand, and that’s a really trendy however Southern California-type really feel. 

Elsie: I nonetheless haven’t watched that. Sometime we’ll should.

Emma: You gained’t prefer it, you don’t like motion motion pictures. 

Elsie: I do suppose motion scenes are boring, however I feel that quite a lot of good motion pictures have quite a lot of motion scenes. Identical to all of the kicking all of the punching, I don’t know, had sufficient. Okay. So I already stated my primary favourite, so I assume I can’t say that once more, however probably the most Nancy Meyers second from any of the movies is certainly the Newlywed Cottage, in order that they stay of their trendy dwelling, however they determine to make them kind of a marriage reward of their very own little cottage the place they will stay for just a few years. They make it seem to be you may stay there after which you may come again with us in a while when you’re not a newlywed. And also you’ll discover they do have a mattress on this cottage, and it’s beautiful. It’s lovely. It’s like the proper little, it’s excellent.

Emma: It has all of the like form of trendy issues or no less than the issues that I like a few trendy home or trendy structure, however then it feels very cozy which I feel is form of what else he’s saying with the Nancy Meyers is it has like extra rustic touches and simply play textures, and colours. It simply feels cozier. 

Elsie: Yeah, I feel it goes somewhat bit in direction of the cottage from the vacation, like an English cottage. No person doesn’t like that. Each single one who listens to our podcast loves that cottage, all of us agree on this one factor. Okay. So was there something from Twilight that you just thought didn’t age effectively or could be completely different immediately?

Emma: Yeah, it’s based mostly on books, so there’s that so far as like altering issues or updating it, it form of doesn’t make sense as a result of what I used to be gonna say is it’s form of hilarious when she’s attempting to determine what Edward is as a result of he’s form of like, I’m not human-like one thing’s occurring right here. However I can’t let you know and so it’s as much as her to analysis and work out that he’s a vampire and he or she begins on the web. And the web on this film is hilarious. After which she goes to a bookstore to get a guide after which she reads the guide cuz she couldn’t have discovered that info on the web. But it surely’s fairly fundamental details about vampires after which she goes again to the web I feel any form of items all of it collectively. However anyway, I don’t know the way to describe it. It’s simply a type of issues in motion pictures and it’s not a nasty factor. I really get pleasure from seeing previous variations of the web or like flip telephones and flicks. I view it in another way than we must always replace this or this makes the film unhealthy. I’m like, I really find it irresistible as a result of I keep in mind when the web didn’t have very a lot on it and once we all had flip telephones and like, I do know this period, so it doesn’t hassle me in any means. It’s simply, it actually provides it a sure age and it’s additionally, no less than for me, prefer it does form of pull you out somewhat bit the place you’re like, oh, this use of the web is hilarious. And it takes away from the story somewhat bit cuz issues simply change over time. That’s simply how it’s.

Elsie: Yeah, no, I undoubtedly agree with that. For me, I feel the film aged very effectively. I feel that it seems to be cooler. Examine it to another vampire TV present or film, and it’s ageing like a dream. So thought it was nice, however I feel the factor that I’d change about it, if I might change one factor for myself, for my very own pleasure is that I feel that the Vampire Edward, his character’s too boring. I feel that his character doesn’t have sufficient of a giant persona and I feel when you lived for that lengthy, you may be much more fascinating. Particularly, I really feel like within the film Robert Pattinson is rather like a stupendous vampire and that’s carrying like 95% of the load that you just’re simply fascinated about how lovely he’s, however just like the phrases that he’s saying not very fascinating when you had been listening to the audiobook or one thing, which I did. So yeah, I feel the characters are no matter, however I’m not gonna decide aside twilight. I’m simply not going to, so let’s simply not.

Emma: I really feel like yeah, that’s a distinct dialogue so far as like, do you may have any issues with the guide? I’m like, effectively, I assume I’ve some issues with romance as a style, cuz there tends to be quite a lot of males stalking girls. And that’s okay, there are issues like that the place you’re like, that is bizarre and we don’t know what we’re doing. 

Elsie: When he was staying in her bed room, watching her sleep for 2 months earlier than he informed her, and that’s presupposed to be like cute.

Emma: Romantic and also you’re like, what? Excuse me. 

Elsie: Yeah, proper. Agreed however I’m prepared to miss no matter in terms of vampires and I’ll say, okay, so I learn Interview with the Vampire final yr, after which I feel I learn the primary a part of the Vampire Diaries, like a type of books. After which, I can’t keep in mind if there have been any extra, oh, there have been just like the Southern vampires. It’s simply enjoyable to see every tackle it. They at all times preserve the basic mythology after which make one factor, you understand, like a fable or no matter. And so I feel it’s at all times fascinating simply to see like what one factor they throw out and which issues they preserve.

Emma: Yeah, I’d say the identical factor with the werewolves, which we don’t actually study a lot on this first film. I imply, it form of provides us some thought about it, however we’re probably not seeing it till the second film. However I feel that their tackle werewolves is fairly fascinating too, and there are many issues from the widespread fable about it that they’ve saved after which there are different issues that they modified. Similar with their vampires, and I feel that’s usually enjoyable in monster motion pictures. And normally, I really feel prefer it form of provides you an thought of what demographic they had been aiming for. Like is that this tremendous edgy and for adults or is that this like we might let youngsters and perhaps pre-teens learn these and luxuriate in? You form of get a vibe and possibly the identical factor with witches and any form of legendary creature or monster or no matter. Will depend on how they modify it for the demographic they’re aiming for.

Elsie: Completely. Okay, are you prepared for some trivia? It’s trivia time. So this primary one is basically cute. Robert Patson realized to drive through the making of twilight. He didn’t have a driver’s license and he realized to drive in Oregon. Isn’t that cute? 

Emma: Oh my gosh, that’s actually cute. Additionally, the thought of studying to drive if it was wet on a regular basis form of stresses me out. I don’t even like driving in heavy rain now. 

Elsie: No, completely. I believed that was a enjoyable truth. Okay, the following one is earlier than Robert Patson and Kristen Stewart had been solid, Stephanie Meyer stated she thought Henry Caval, Logan Laman, and Tom Sturge, I don’t know who that’s, could be good as Edward, and he or she thought Elliot Web page, Emily Browning or Danielle Panabaker could be good within the position of Bella. 

Emma: Yeah, I solely know a few of these actors. Truthfully, I might see like all those that I do know, I’m like, yeah, I might see that that might be completely different and fascinating.

Elsie: I like Kristen Stewart on this film. I really couldn’t see it with out both of them. I feel they’re excellent, however I feel anybody else might have been too, and I feel it’s simply enjoyable. I’d like to see each actor play a vampire as soon as if that had been potential. 

Emma: I do find it irresistible too. I don’t know if this exists for this film, however I do find it irresistible when it’s like on YouTube whenever you see a distinct actor who’s attempting out for a job and it ended up not being them, it went to any individual else however seeing their tackle it. I like watching stuff like that. I feel it’s a lot enjoyable. Like audition tapes, I assume. 

Elsie: Oh yeah. I additionally learn that Lily Collins auditioned for Bella, which she would’ve been excellent for. Okay, this one I like in all 5 motion pictures, the vast majority of the solid had been completely different coloured eye contacts, which No together with Kristen Stewart, in order that her eyes could be brown to match the outline of Bella within the guide. I really hadn’t observed that earlier than that Kirsten Stewart, it stated she wore a wig and contacts in all the films. I hadn’t actually observed that in any respect. So I’d say her wig job and her costuming had been like a ten. I couldn’t even discover that she seemed completely different than traditional. 

Emma: Yeah. I feel her wig was the most effective one then, cuz I didn’t discover that one.

Elsie: It was actually good. Oh my God, this one is about Renesmee. So Renesmee, when you’ve watched all the films, it’s a little child. It’s somewhat half Vampire child. And I’d say it’s probably the most polarizing particular impact in historical past. Would you agree? I can’t say sufficient unhealthy issues about it and the way the infant seems to be. It’s simply so humorous. I wouldn’t change it although, cuz it’s so enjoyable how unhealthy it’s, however it’s horrible. Okay, so this trivia is about, The infant Renesmee, earlier than Renesmee was a totally grown youngster, performed by McKenzie Foy, the youthful model was created by CGI. However they initially deliberate for the younger Renesmee to be an animatronic doll. Nonetheless, the doll seemed so creepy, they determined to go down the CGI route. The doll’s creator even discovered her creepy and stated it was probably the most grotesque, animatronic infants ever to not be seen on movie.

Emma: Okay, so right here is the fan fiction spinoff, we want a horror film with that animatronic doll in it.

Elsie: I like that. Oh my gosh. Yeah, I’m wondering the place’s the doll saved, and might we see it? Can we maintain it? 

Emma: Has it ever like come to life and killed half a city? Can we study that story?

Elsie: Can I cover it in child Oscar’s crib? Let him discover. 

Emma: He likes to be scared. 

Elsie: No, no, no, no. I wouldn’t scare him. I’d simply scare you. I’d simply exchange him with the scary doll. Okay, effectively I like that as a result of it’s humorous it was undoubtedly my can’t let it go. As quickly as I watched the films, I used to be like texting Emma in regards to the creepy child and I simply can’t consider that there was even one worse that was not suited.

Emma: The truth that there’s one thing worse, they had been like, this was the higher choice. The one that you just see within the motion pictures and also you’re like, okay. 

Elsie: Yeah, and if any of you may have by no means watched The Twilight Saga throughout, now it’s a must to watch it only for the creepy child. You’re welcome. Okay, the following and final piece of trivia is, sure forks is an actual place and you’ll go go to. Apparently, when writing the books, Stephanie Meyer needed to set them someplace gloomy and really overcast so her vampires wouldn’t sparkle an excessive amount of and reveal themselves. So she did some analysis and discovered that Forks is likely one of the rainiest locations in the entire US. Now you may go to a lot of these real-life areas and luxuriate in a number of the rain your self. I feel that’s nice. I at all times marvel how folks in like a film city really feel about their city’s fame as a result of it’s pretty current and I’d love to listen to what the residents give it some thought, however I’d think about it has its execs and cons. But when it’s simply principally nerds coming to take an image by just like the signal and issues like that, which can be within the film.

Emma: Wait a second. Nerds. I used to be about to say, we have to go there for a sister journey. 

Elsie: Oh, I’m accepting the invitation. We’re going, that sounds nice. 

Emma: It sounds very cozy and enjoyable, it’s gonna be a blast. 

Elsie: Yeah, we are able to get a grilled cheese. 

Emma: We will go to the bizarre bookstore. It’ll be nice. 

Elsie: Okay. The reply is sure. I’d like to go. However yeah, I feel that’s cool that it’s set in an actual place. I prefer it at any time when in books and flicks when there’s a small city or a spot I at all times look as much as see if it’s actual, like each single factor. And I find it irresistible when it’s actual and I additionally find it irresistible when it’s not actual. So both means it’s nice, however I feel that it’s cool that it’s based mostly on an actual place. 

Emma: Yeah, up to now I’ve solely written two books, however I at all times have one in all my main settings in Missouri. As a result of on the off probability that sometime one thing bought made right into a film, I actually hope they might really movie a part of it in Missouri, cuz I like Missouri. It’s the place I’m from and I simply am actually proud present me state gal. I don’t know. So I similar to to form of set it. I don’t even know if folks would love that.

Elsie: It’s one in all my goals for Missouri is that folks would movie there extra as a result of it is rather lovely and there are many locations within the US the place motion pictures get filmed, however Missouri actually shouldn’t be one in all them. There’s infrequently, even when there’s a present about Missouri, like Ozark, they nonetheless didn’t movie most of it in precise Missouri. 

Emma: Yeah, I really feel like quite a lot of it’s in Georgia or one thing. I really feel like there’s a most likely quite a lot of tax breaks that I don’t actually learn about. Union stuff, there’s most likely quite a lot of issues like that that I don’t learn about, however I simply suppose that Missouri has all 4 seasons, and the Ozarks particularly are simply so lovely. So yeah, similar. I form of hope there are extra constructive issues filmed right here trigger I simply suppose it’s actually a stupendous a part of the nation. However I’m additionally biased cuz I’m from right here and I find it irresistible. 

Elsie: It’s enjoyable studying one thing about your space and Yeah, like the place we grew up in Missouri, apart from Gone Woman, there will not be very many issues.

Emma: I feel within the guide Born Supremacy, he’s like from Nixa, after which clearly the present Ozarks is form of a factor now, clearly cuz it’s a really huge present. I’m attempting to suppose what else is from round right here. I really feel like each every so often Springfield will get talked about, however extra usually it’s Kansas Metropolis or St. Louis, however I really feel like Kansas Metropolis particularly, we’ll get just a few issues right here and there cuz it’s a much bigger metropolis in Missourian. I don’t know why that issues, however folks set issues there extra. 

Elsie: I simply learn this guide referred to as Nothing to See Right here by Kevin Wilson final week and it was set within the precise space the place I’m residing proper now in Tennessee. And for each location within the guide, I knew precisely the place it was. And I even suspect that I do know what farm he was utilizing as inspiration, it’s so clear. Anyway, it’s enjoyable to learn a guide about a spot that, you understand, and it’s so uncommon except you reside in New York Metropolis or someplace like that. Me, I infrequently learn a guide about, the place I’ve lived. 

Emma: Yeah, me too. I’m positive when you stay in LA and New York, you’re like, yeah, each story’s about me, however for us it’s uncommon. 

Elsie: So let’s give the film our score between zero to 5 vampires. 

Emma: I’d give it 4 outta 5 vampires. Fairly good. Okay.

Elsie: Effectively I’m undoubtedly gonna go full 5 out of 5 vampires simply because I feel that when you love vampires, it’s an unskippable basic. It’s great and I see why. I do know some persons are not gonna consider that this was a extremely requested rewatch, however it’s a extremely requested rewatch from our listeners. And I feel that I get it. I’m within the class of people that discover this to be a consolation film and, I don’t know, similar to it has that cozy feeling, regardless that. The interiors are lower than the Nancy Meyer commonplace, however I nonetheless suppose it has so many different issues which can be cozy and great about it. 

Emma: I agree. Yep. I used to be truthfully sick and I used to be texting you, I used to be like, the place can I discover twilight? Trigger I used to be like, no less than I might do our rewatch. And that was just like the one on the listing that as I used to be sick and simply needing to put down for some time, I used to be like, I wanna watch Twilight. That really was a consolation look ahead to me as I used to be getting over somewhat illness.

Elsie: Magical. Okay. Effectively, that was enjoyable. So we hope you want this new format. We’re taking a request for the following few seasons of rewatch motion pictures that we’re gonna do. We’re gonna do one about as soon as a month. You possibly can e-mail us at [email protected] and tell us what your final consolation rewatch film is. So thanks a lot for listening.
