Some readers out there have solely dedicated their love to Twilight. Myself, I am able to spread my devotion among many franchises. And that brings me to Star Wars.
Most people have seen at least one of the Star Wars flicks by now and you all know that Darth Vader is Luke's dad, right? No? Ooops, my bad!
Anyway, those movies have been digitalized, refurbished, re-released, reupholstered and everything else you can do to a movie short of re-shooting it. My question is - why? To make it a better experience for the fans or to get more moola from the truly devoted?
This does have a Twilight connection, just let me get there. I was watching Twilight last night and thought about the HUGE advancements from the first movie to the third. And considering the crew of cinematic geniuses that will be contributing to Breaking Dawn, these movies are going to seem completely unconnected.
I just wonder how many years it will take before they remake Twilight. Or they do some other fancy-pants effects to the movie and we all are expected to go purchase a new DVD copy.
Most of us fell in love with the original and are ok with the hokeyness of Edward's "Hold on tight, spider monkey." But when will the big wigs decide that it would be fantastic to see Rosalie break the salad bowl in 3-D or maybe today's teens can't relate to Kristin Stewart's Bella and they need to update it with rapping and more teen angst?
It could end well, but I fear for my Edward.
