Report: Kristen Stewart to play Joan Jett in “The Runaways” biopic…

“Twilight’s” leading star Kristen Stewart is set to portray the legendary punk rocker, Joan Jett in “The Runaways” biopic. The Runaways were a manufactured rock n’ roll all girly band that was formed by Joan Jett and Sandy West, Kim Fowley managed the band and had total control. Other members included Lita Ford, Micki Steele, Peggy Foster, Vicki Blue, and more. The band were together for four years but broke up due to management and money issues.

Joan Jett went on to form the Blackhearts which she wrote many memorable hits such as “I Love Rock N’ Roll” and plenty more. The film “The Runaways” will begin filming early in 2009 hoping to finish before Kristen goes to work on the next “Twilight” sequel, “New Moon”. Joan Jett the legend herself will be executive producer for “The Runaways” film, will she have a small cameo in the film as well? Who knows!

It will be interesting to see who is going to play Lita Ford. Hope it won’t be Britney Spears.

I wonder if Kristen will have to learn to play guitar and sing for her Joan Jett role?

Report: “New Moon” sequel to “Twilight” to start filming this coming March…

Kristen Stewart revealed on a interview with Ryan Seacrest on his radioshow that the film makers of “Twilight” will start filming the sequel “New Moon” right away this coming March. Summit Entertainment announced a sequel is greenlighted, a script has been written already, and the cast from the first movie is still on board for a sequel, so they aren’t wasting any time and getting right to work.

They will film the “New Moon” movie in Italy because most of the book was taken place there.

Glad they are getting right to work on the sequel. We’ll probably get an early 2011 release for “New Moon”. The second story gets better and more interesting than the first.

I’m glad a sequel is in the works this soon. “New Moon” to get either a 2010 or 2011 release? Looks it.

Film Review: Twilight

Starring: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart

Directed by: Catherine Hardwicke

Just got back from seeing the movie “Twilight” the movie adapted from the book by author Stephenie Meyer. The movie does pretty much follow the same story as the novel does.

Story centers around a young Bella Swan moving into Forks, Washington with her father Charlie. There she goes to a new high school where she meets new friends and where she runs into Edward Cullen. Edward Cullen was a loner who didn’t want to talk to anyone but until he met Bella, he changed. As their friendship grows, they fall in love with each other after Bella finding out what Edward Cullen really is, a vampire. Edward is a good vampire, not an evil one. While in Forks, Edward invites Bella to play a game of baseball with his vampire family. Suddenly, the Cullens run into some evil when a vampire named James who is a tracker vampire decides to hunt Bella for sport. Edward and the rest of the Cullens team up to try and save Bella’s life.

My thoughts on the movie? I was surprised by it. It turned out to be a good one. Nothing excellent or nothing amazing, but the movie itself was fun and entertaining. That’s all it is. Just a fun and entertaining movie. What I like about the film is how the film is full of unknown actors. Basically the entire cast, you don’t even know who these actors are. There is not one big name star in the film.

As I said before, the film had something for everyone in it. Romance, drama, even a little comedy, horror and violent action scenes. The movie starts to get pretty violent toward the end of the movie, and there is even “mild” blood and gore as well. Nothing gross out that’ll make your stomach turn or nothing like that, but there is blood in the movie.

Stephenie Meyer the author herself, makes a tiny cameo appearance in the film. I won’t say where she is in the film but she is in there somewhere. I recognized her right away and was like, there she is right there.

I was impressed by Robert Pattinson’s acting in the film, he played the Edward Cullen character real good. Nothing Oscar worthy or anything like that, but his acting was something special. His acting made you kept glued to him everytime he appeared on screen. The dark cinematography was great. The acting of a teenage cast, they didn’t make this feel like a teenage movie, their acting skills was actually very maturing.

As far as the audience turn out goes, yes, there were a bunch of teenage girls in the theater that I was in, but there were guys around my age sitting by themselves watching the movie too. There were actually people in various ages of the theater I was in. The film is for everyone. You can’t immediately assume that the “Twilight” series is for teenage girls only when it isn’t true at all. I believe the series goal is to fit along the lines of “Harry Potter”, “Lord of the Rings”, and “Chronicles of Narnia”.

People should stop making fun of Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” series. She deserves the respect because she is bringing the horror genre to the younger generation. Whether you hate the Twilight series or love it, respect Stephenie Meyer for the work. There is too many fantasy and family oriented fiction for young adults but never anything in the horror genre. This is why Stephenie Meyer is huge in the media for this. The horror genre over the years was mostly aimed at adults, but Stephenie Meyer wanted to bring the genre to young adults. It’s that easy to understand why she’s so popular. It’s not because of the teen romance thing, it’s how she’s bringing the horror genre into kids lives. I enjoy the storytelling in the “Twilight” series.

The “Twilight” film is real good. I enjoyed it. Check it out. If you’re too embarrassed to see it in theater like a pussy (it ain’t like you’re seeing a porn or anything), wait for DVD if that works for you.

Score for “Twilight” = *** (3 stars as in “good”)
