  1. This podcast was pure win. Enjoyed it very much! I laughed so much at some parts, very well done lololol ;)

    • Thanks Rickster! Glad you’re enjoying them.

  2. I don’t think that these film makers think they actually CAN make a good film with the Twilight books. They have a crazy following and they know it’ll make a billion bucks whether it’s good or not. So they take the paycheck (most obviously with David Slade) and just force it out quickly. If they think ahead of time it can’t be that great, it seems like they don’t even try.

    • Kind of sad, right? As I mentioned in the cast, I genuinely understand how certain readers/movie-goers could enjoy the Twilight story/movie saga but… with all of the various talent and money involved it’s shocking how little the studio seems to care about drawing non-fans in or producing the best possible experience for actual fans.

      • Let me see if I can say this right because it’s hard to explain. I run a major Twilight fan site (I was tweeting you guys earlier while I listened). You can absolutely love a film and know it’s not high quality. There are cringe-worthy moments and the fans of this series that are not the ones that claim everything in it is amazing (after I tweeted about the wolfpack scene, a fan tweeted back that they LOVED that scene. That’s not the kind of fan I am) are aware of those scenes and are embarrassed of them. Because people look at us like we are nuts.

        A certain part of this is the experience, like the social aspect. My co-admin saw this at a press screening and pretty much hated it. Saw it again with ooh-ing and ahh-ing fans a week later and adored it. It’s like a weird community. It’s something where you’ll hold hands with the complete stranger next to you and sob together over something that breaks your heart. And for the majority of us, we have the book series to fill in the holes or to push away the memories of less-than-stellar film scenes.

        All that to say, i get where you guys are coming from. I hear it from my husband on a regular basis. That’s why I don’t want to watch these movies with him. That’s not enjoyable. It’s about the who and not the what for me. And I think most people don’t have that sort of thing so they’ve latched on.

        Wow that was a LONG comment.

        • Definitely fair points – and I totally get where you’re coming from (we all have those guilty pleasures).

          Maybe you can join us on the podcast for our discussion of Part 2…

          • You want to throw me to the wolves!

            • Ha. No definitely not. One of our primary goals at Screen Rant (with our articles) is to present balanced editorializing of the news – as well as our reviews. We try to be analytical – not just throw out our biased and one-sided opinions.

              The podcast is an opportunity for us to be a little more casual and I think the guys took that to heart with the Twilight review (Anthony and Kofi especially) but we’d definitely be on good behavior if you were interested. I think you’d be able to add a lot to the discussion – for both us, as well as our listeners.

              Either way, I think it’s great that you sat through our review – and felt comfortable commenting in the post.

  3. WHAT! Anthony Ocasio totally won the box office battle!!!!!!!!!!
    These were his picks as recorded in the actual podcast of Episode 13
    Twilight Pt1 #1
    Happy Feet 2 #2
    Immortals #3
    Puss in boots #4
    Jack and jill #5

    I listen to every episode and I know that he totally won this week!


  4. Whoops! I must of looked at the wrong Box Office chart. The one I read had
    1- Twilight
    2- Happy Feet 2
    4- Puss in boots
    5- Tower Heist

    My mistake :/

    • Ya, ya Frank – you’re just a Anthony Ocasio fanboy. Just kidding. In all honesty, you had me worried for a second there because it would have been easy for me to screw that up. Haha.

  5. Kofi mentioned something about the later Hunger Games installments not being as good as the first. Without getting into too spoilerish, could someone please expand on that? I haven’t read the books but I am interested in seeing the movie. Kofi’s comment caught my attention.

    • Uh oh. It’s me again. The Twilight fan! Having said that, I do like other things. Including Hunger Games. But I wanted to mention that my husband has read them and the second one was actually his favorite. Each book has a little bit different tone so I think there’s a lot of different reaction to each one. From what I can tell, the latest is probably the most polarizing. Curious what other guys think of the series.

      I have no idea why I am commenting so much today. I think I have commented like one time ever on this site.

      • @Lindz

        Screenrant is the best and It’d be cool to see more of your comments around :D

        Well I really enjoy the hunger games, Ive read 1 and 2. I love the story but idk about the writing some things are hardly explained well. The action is pretty neat though and I cant wait for this movie… I can already tell its going to be good! :)

        • The trailer is killer. I really can’t wait!

          I will say I know what you mean about some of the writing. I feel like important things get glossed over so fast you miss them, and then less important things get a lot of focus. It happens a lot in Mockingjay, which, IMO, feels like a completely different story. But I still like it.

          • Yeah Ive heard that Mockingjay feels diffrent but im still looking forward to reading that! haha.. it should be good.
