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 many who haven’t watched it. 

Emma: All proper, so should you don’t know what Twilight is, I don’t even know. The place, to start with, you, but it surely’s about vampires and a human falls in love with a vampire. And so they’re in highschool. Effectively, she is, he’s clearly actually outdated cuz he’s a vampire, so there’s that.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 identical to, it’s about vampires. Everyone 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 among 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 advised me all about that. So Keeley has taught me 95% of what I knew about Twilight got here from her. I heard that should you wanna be a fan, you will be referred to as a TWI Exhausting, otherwise you will be referred to as a fan Pire. Fan Pire? These are cute, proper? Okay, so Carson made me learn the ebook, it’s referred to as Midnight Solar. So the Midnight Solar is similar as Twilight however from the Vampire Edwards’s perspective as a substitute of from Bella’s perspective. And she or he mentioned 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 assume any of those books are like the opposite books we learn in any respect. However it was enjoyable, I believe it’s a journey. I wished to learn them simply because I believe that Stephanie Meyer is fascinating and I really like simply studying about her profession. She has a type of actually attention-grabbing, romantic writer tales. She considered the concept 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 discuss in regards to the coloring of the film typically. 

Elsie: Oh my gosh. So I solely watched these films I believe a yr or two in the past. It was undoubtedly throughout my biking section. In order that was not very way back. However the authentic first time that I noticed Twilight, I keep in mind particularly I used to be on an airplane. And you know the way typically if you’re flying on an airplane, you want to observe another person’s film? While you’re bored. While you’re not watching a film, simply trying over at another person’s film. And typically I watch nearly the entire film that manner. So this was a type of occasions. and I used to be watching the unique Twilight and I simply couldn’t imagine the coloring, just like the filter of how the primary film appears 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 should you wanna see an instance of how inexperienced it’s. It’s beautiful trying. Very, very completely different from any film I’ve ever seen. And like you might say it’s tacky and dated, however I believe that it’s come round to the place it’s so dangerous, it’s good now. I might stand by it as variety of a professional of the film, not a con. 

Emma: Yeah, and I don’t assume I noticed this primary one in theaters, however I in all probability noticed it inside 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 a bit snob? Have been you a bit 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 pondering that the inexperienced filtering was simply form of bizarre. And in addition the primary film feels a bit low-budget in a manner that I wasn’t anticipating as a result of it was such a well-liked ebook. And I believe 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 advised me that the price range for the Twilight films tried to take the Harry Potter followers for the following chapter, however the price range was nowhere shut. So I believe that is smart, I believe that comes by way of as prefer it’s the same kind of fandom. However yeah, I assumed 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 manner. 

Emma: Yeah, what I might say about how I really feel about it now, rewatching it lately and seeing the inexperienced filtering and identical to the garments and the best way they’ve achieved the make-up and all of the issues. I really feel like I perceive extra now what they have been going for, and I adore it. That is Bizarre and a time capsule and I believe it’s superior. And so they additionally did a number of attention-grabbing selections for me. Like each time the vampires are strolling, not essentially the Collin crew, however the different three vampires who present up later they usually’re form of the dangerous guys. There’s an element the place they’re like strolling out of the forest to the baseball recreation 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 form of floating. So it’s simply this bizarre surreal look the place you’re, you possibly can see that they’re transferring their legs, however that they’re not strolling like there’s one thing bizarre. And I simply assume that was like a bizarre, attention-grabbing selection that I preferred 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 attention-grabbing. I really feel like they made a variety of selections within the film that was enjoyable they usually’re bizarre, but it surely feels actually campy and enjoyable and a really cult basic, I might say. 

Elsie: Yeah, very sturdy selections. I assumed it aged very effectively in that manner. Let’s speak about their MySpace hair. The actors, particularly the vampire actors, have excessive hairstyles which can be identical 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 individuals wore their hair once we have been in highschool and school. Simply hairstylist hair slash MySpace hair. And it additionally evolves by way of the collection, among the actors get completely different hairstyles and a variety of them are carrying wigs.

And I’ll say a variety of the wigs are dangerous, so there are undoubtedly not all of the wigs that appear like they’re seamless. However yeah, there’s one thing very MySpace about the entire thing. 

Emma: I believe it feels very emo. Additionally, the soundtrack, simply very teenage angst or younger grownup angst or regardless of the hairstyles, among the garments, among the appearing, the soundtrack all feels prefer it actually suits that form of aesthetic of I’m Emo. 

Elsie: Sure. Sure. Oh, I’ve to inform you my largest title drop ever, I’ve two really. So the primary one, so I’m so cool. I’ve two mates who had songs within the Twilight films, not the identical film however within the first film, our pal’s band, it’s not a band anymore, on the time was referred to as Mute Math they usually carried out their tune from the primary Twilight film, it’s a reasonably good placement. It’s like they’re strolling into the highschool as a pair for the primary time. Did you see it? While you watched it? Did you discover? Once 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, but it surely was so cool. And it was as a result of they have been on this film, that they bought to do this late-night present. After which our different pal sleeping finally, Ryan did the tune for the marriage scene and it’s really in there twice. It’s within the marriage ceremony scene, after which they play it once more throughout the first intercourse scene on the honeymoon. It’s a extremely good placement. If I needed to say in my memoir on the finish of my life, like, when have been you the proudest of a pal? It might in all probability be once 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 might enhance it as The Promenade, it’s like a casino-themed promenade after which I might serve mushroom ravioli as a result of that’s like part of the primary date. Yeah. I believe that will be fairly legit. 

Emma: Yeah, I believe so too. I additionally love all of the meals on the diner and simply the diner typically, it’s only a cute environment and it makes me consider, I believe it was referred to as denims in Buffalo, Missouri again once we have been rising up and our grandma would take us there once we have been there together with her on the weekends typically. And it’s now a distinct restaurant I don’t know what it’s now, however I might 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 discuss by way of all of our favourite units and rooms and homes within the film. I believe the diner is a good place to start out as a result of I simply love films set in a small city is a factor that I completely adore. I believe it’s simply charming and it’s great and the diner, it’s a staple of any small city. If you happen to don’t have a diner the place you possibly can order, like a Gilmore Women kind of diner then you definitely don’t have it’s a very powerful small-town enterprise to have, I believe.

Emma: It’s vital. 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. And so they get tougher and tougher to search out in sure elements of the nation. They’re not straightforward 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 assumed that this was the proper small-town farmhouse. It appears like a median home. It jogs my memory of lots of my mates’ homes that I visited as a toddler, like if you’re going to a celebration 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 good for a teen, however he will get the age fallacious. 

Emma: Oh, I assumed he had form of left issues in her room that was like from occasions she had visited previously they usually have been like little one issues. It was form of like she hasn’t actually been right here in a short time, or, oh, she hasn’t seen her dad that a lot over time. 

Elsie: That’s what I believe it’s speaking, when he’s like, you want purple, proper? And she or he’s like, yeah. It’s like that for all members of the family should you don’t see a toddler for six months, you would possibly see a very completely different little one with fully new completely different pursuits. 

Emma: I do know sooner or later I’m gonna are available in sizzling 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 together with her promenade gown. So it’s a must to have a staircase. I assumed it was an cute home and the most effective ones. After which subsequent we now have to speak in regards to the colon home, so the twenties and in addition I believe thirty-year-old Elsie. I swear. I at all times thought this was my dream home. I used to Google photos of it and it was like my good dream home and this time once I re-watched it, I used to be like, oh, it’s identical to a bit fashionable 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 definitely return to drive by it and go to it, and also you notice that it appears completely different than the way it did in your reminiscence. That’s how the Collin home was for me. I nonetheless assume it’s a dream home, but it surely’s perhaps not my dream home anymore, and it’s simply very fashionable, like extra fashionable. I believe I imagined it as or remembered it as extra cabin and fewer like a complete new construct.

Emma: Attention-grabbing as a result of right here is my tackle it. I keep in mind seeing the film for the primary time and pondering, what a gorgeous home, I adore it. That’s my dream home for positive, identical as you. After which over time, I used to be like, oh yeah, that in all probability 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 believe I beloved this home much more than I beloved it in my twenties I’m like, I really like this home. What was I pondering I didn’t like about this home? And I’m like, I adore it. Like a really fashionable, cool home within the forest. I’m like, I adore it. Yeah, it will not be very sensible for my life and like what I do for a dwelling, cuz there’s no manner you might take good pictures in that home, there are too many bushes throughout it. Belief me, I used to reside in a home with a variety of bushes round it and also you simply can not take nice meals pictures for meals running a blog. So it wouldn’t work for me. But when that’s an Airbnb, I might love to go to someday. 

Elsie: Yeah, no, I nonetheless assume it’s a ten. It’s simply not my outdated dream home anymore, however it’s nonetheless a ten. And I might say a variety of the artwork in the home, I used to be dissecting it scene by scene once I was watching it yesterday and a variety of the artwork is de facto tacky. A number of the artwork is like, I might say a zero or a two out of 10. It’s not timeless in any respect. The commencement cap, the enormous commencement cap body with all his hundred commencement caps, I might say is like the perfect artwork in the home. It’s cool, it’s significant, it appears nice and it’s bizarre, I really like that. 

Emma: Yeah, and he says it’s like a private joke, but it surely additionally as a viewer you’re very instantly like, oh, they by no means have individuals 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 significantly by no means plan on ever having somebody to this home ever? 

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

Elsie: Since their life is designed like a canopy I simply thought that they’d 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 believe it will 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, . 

Elsie: Okay, I modified my reply, you’re proper. That may be a good reply and so candy. Yeah. I really like his classical music factor. I really like all of the data. If I have been him, I might 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 long run 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 really like a contemporary homes. 

Elsie: Yeah, I might undoubtedly see you in that home, I believe it’s lovely. And the porches, in my reminiscence appeared like a cabin extra. And what I checked out now, I used to be like, that was in all probability constructed like final yr, ? It appeared very new. So let’s speak about among the units from the opposite films, 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 among the different films that we do. So I wanna speak about my favourite factors from all the flicks. I really like the Small City, I really like the movie show that they created for the small city. I assumed that was actually nostalgic and my primary favourite visible second from any of the flicks is certainly the marriage. I believe that the best way the white flowers hanging, the best way that all the pieces is, it’s like, the last word dream marriage ceremony. If I needed to simply design a dream marriage ceremony, I might simply take an image of that and simply not mess with anything. 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 trying, it’s unimaginable. After which one other, enjoyable architectural second from the flicks is the honeymoon, trip dwelling. Kind of like they’ve their very own little non-public island trip. 

Emma: It’s like a breezy seaside, , like should you have been at a really fancy non-public resort, it will be like that form of vibe.

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

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

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

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

Elsie: I do assume motion scenes are boring, however I believe that a variety of good films have a variety of motion scenes. Identical to all of the kicking all of the punching, I don’t know, had sufficient. Okay. So I already mentioned my primary favourite, so I assume I can’t say that once more, however essentially the most Nancy Meyers second from any of the movies is certainly the Newlywed Cottage, in order that they reside of their fashionable dwelling, however they resolve to make them form of a marriage present of their very own little cottage the place they will reside for a number of years. They make it seem to be you possibly can reside there after which you possibly can come again with us in a while if you find yourself not a newlywed. And also you’ll discover they do have a mattress on this cottage, and it’s attractive. It’s lovely. It’s like the proper little, it’s good.

Emma: It has all of the like form of fashionable issues or not less than the issues that I like a couple of fashionable home or fashionable structure, however then it feels very cozy which I believe 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 believe it goes a bit bit in direction of the cottage from the vacation, like an English cottage. No person doesn’t like that. Each single one that 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 at present?

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 making an attempt 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 inform you 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 ebook after which she reads the ebook cuz she couldn’t have discovered that data on the web. However it’s fairly fundamental details about vampires after which she goes again to the web I believe any form of items all of it collectively. However anyway, I don’t know how one can describe it. It’s simply a type of issues in films and it’s not a foul factor. I really take pleasure in seeing outdated variations of the web or like flip telephones and flicks. I view it otherwise than we must always replace this or this makes the film dangerous. I’m like, I really adore it 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 trouble me in any manner. It’s simply, it actually provides it a sure age and it’s additionally, not less than for me, prefer it does form of pull you out a bit bit the place you’re like, oh, this use of the web is hilarious. And it takes away from the story a bit bit cuz issues simply change over time. That’s simply how it’s.

Elsie: Yeah, no, I undoubtedly agree with that. For me, I believe the film aged very effectively. I believe that it appears cooler. Evaluate it to another vampire TV present or film, and it’s growing older like a dream. So thought it was nice, however I believe the factor that I might change about it, if I might change one factor for myself, for my very own pleasure is that I believe that the Vampire Edward, his character’s too boring. I believe that his character doesn’t have sufficient of a giant character and I believe should you lived for that lengthy, you might be much more attention-grabbing. Particularly, I really feel like within the film Robert Pattinson is rather like a gorgeous 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 attention-grabbing should you have been listening to the audiobook or one thing, which I did. So yeah, I believe 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’ve any issues with the ebook? I’m like, effectively, I assume I’ve some issues with romance as a style, cuz there tends to be a variety 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 advised her, and that’s purported 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 believe 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 hold the basic mythology after which make one factor, , like a fantasy or no matter. And so I believe it’s at all times attention-grabbing simply to see like what one factor they throw out and which issues they hold.

Emma: Yeah, I might 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 concept about it, however we’re probably not seeing it till the second film. However I believe that their tackle werewolves is fairly attention-grabbing too, and there are many issues from the frequent fantasy about it that they’ve saved after which there are different issues that they modified. Similar with their vampires, and I believe that’s typically enjoyable in monster films. And often, I really feel prefer it form of provides you an concept of what demographic they have 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 revel 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. Is determined by 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 de facto cute. Robert Patson discovered to drive throughout the making of twilight. He didn’t have a driver’s license and he discovered to drive in Oregon. Isn’t that cute? 

Emma: Oh my gosh, that’s actually cute. Additionally, the concept 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 assumed that was a enjoyable reality. Okay, the following one is earlier than Robert Patson and Kristen Stewart have been solid, Stephanie Meyer mentioned 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 function of Bella. 

Emma: Yeah, I solely know a few of these actors. Actually, I might see like all those that I do know, I’m like, yeah, I might see that that will be completely different and attention-grabbing.

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

Emma: I do adore it too. I don’t know if this exists for this film, however I do adore it when it’s like on YouTube if you see a distinct actor who’s making an attempt out for a task and it ended up not being them, it went to any individual else however seeing their tackle it. I really like watching stuff like that. I believe 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 good for. Okay, this one I really like in all 5 films, the vast majority of the solid have 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 ebook. I really hadn’t seen that earlier than that Kirsten Stewart, it mentioned she wore a wig and contacts in all the flicks. I hadn’t actually seen that in any respect. So I might say her wig job and her costuming have been like a ten. I couldn’t even discover that she appeared completely different than ordinary. 

Emma: Yeah. I believe her wig was the perfect one then, cuz I didn’t discover that one.

Elsie: It was actually good. Oh my God, this one is about Renesmee. So Renesmee, should you’ve watched all the flicks, it’s a little child. It’s a bit half Vampire child. And I might say it’s essentially the most polarizing particular impact in historical past. Would you agree? I can’t say sufficient dangerous issues about it and the way the infant appears. It’s simply so humorous. I wouldn’t change it although, cuz it’s so enjoyable how dangerous it’s, but it surely’s horrible. Okay, so this trivia is about, The infant Renesmee, earlier than Renesmee was a totally grown little one, 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 appeared so creepy, they determined to go down the CGI route. The doll’s creator even discovered her creepy and mentioned it was some of the grotesque, animatronic infants ever to not be seen on movie.

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

Elsie: I really like that. Oh my gosh. Yeah, I ponder the place’s the doll saved, and may 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 disguise 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 might simply scare you. I might simply exchange him with the scary doll. Okay, effectively I really like that as a result of it’s humorous it was undoubtedly my can’t let it go. As quickly as I watched the flicks, I used to be like texting Emma in regards to the creepy child and I simply can’t imagine that there was even one worse that was not suited.

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

Elsie: Yeah, and if any of you’ve by no means watched The Twilight Saga all over, 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 wished 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 came upon that Forks is likely one of the rainiest locations in the entire US. Now you possibly can go to a number of these real-life places and revel in among the rain your self. I believe that’s nice. I at all times surprise how individuals in like a film city really feel about their city’s fame as a result of it’s pretty latest and I might love to listen to what the residents give it some thought, however I might think about it has its professionals and cons. But when it’s simply largely 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 will get a grilled cheese. 

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

Elsie: Okay. The reply is sure. I might like to go. However yeah, I believe that’s cool that it’s set in an actual place. I prefer it each time 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 adore it when it’s actual and I additionally adore it when it’s not actual. So both manner it’s nice, however I believe 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 among my main settings in Missouri. As a result of on the off likelihood that sometime one thing bought made right into a film, I actually hope they’d really movie a part of it in Missouri, cuz I really 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 identical to to form of set it. I don’t even know if individuals would really like that.

Elsie: It’s one among 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 films get filmed, however Missouri actually is just not one among them. There’s hardly, 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 a variety of it’s in Georgia or one thing. I really feel like there’s a in all probability a variety of tax breaks that I don’t actually find out about. Union stuff, there’s in all probability a variety of issues like that that I don’t find out about, however I simply assume that Missouri has all 4 seasons, and the Ozarks specifically are simply so lovely. So yeah, identical. I form of hope there are extra constructive issues filmed right here trigger I simply assume it’s actually a gorgeous a part of the nation. However I’m additionally biased cuz I’m from right here and I adore it. 

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

Emma: I believe within the ebook 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 large present. I’m making an attempt to assume what else is from round right here. I really feel like each every now and then Springfield will get talked about, however extra usually it’s Kansas Metropolis or St. Louis, however I really feel like Kansas Metropolis specifically, we’ll get a number of issues right here and there cuz it’s a much bigger metropolis in Missourian. I don’t know why that issues, however individuals set issues there extra. 

Elsie: I simply learn this ebook 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 dwelling proper now in Tennessee. And for each location within the ebook, 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 ebook about a spot that, , and it’s so uncommon except you reside in New York Metropolis or someplace like that. Me, I hardly learn a ebook about, the place I’ve lived. 

Emma: Yeah, me too. I’m positive should you reside 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 might 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 believe that should you love vampires, it’s an unskippable basic. It’s great and I see why. I do know some individuals are not gonna imagine that this was a extremely requested rewatch, however it’s a extremely requested rewatch from our listeners. And I believe that I get it. I’m within the class of people that discover this to be a consolation film and, I don’t know, identical to it has that cozy feeling, regardless that. The interiors are lower than the Nancy Meyer commonplace, however I nonetheless assume it has so many different issues which can be cozy and great about it. 

Emma: I agree. Yep. I used to be actually 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, not 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 actually was a consolation look ahead to me as I used to be getting over a bit illness.
