Happy birthday Robert Pattinson!
Today, our beloved vamp is turning the big 2-6.
It seems like just yesterday he was taking his first super-fast steps across the screen in "Twilight."
We know that Twi-Hards everywhere want to celebrate this momentous occasion, so we've hunted down the best Edward Cullen/R.Pattz birthday cakes on the interwebs for inspiration.
Have your cake today, folks, and eat it, too. Get More »
The "What If" game is an entertaining way to burn a few hours. What if you went to Vassar instead of Arizona State University? What if you never went to happy hour that night? What if the Portland Trailblazers had drafted Michael Jordan?
Cinema is one of the best, and most maddening, places to play the "What If" game. Only a few truly great roles float around Hollywood each year. A-list actors jockey against one another for these parts, and the up-and-comers battle it out in auditions. What if Denzel Washington had accepted the lead role in "Ray"? What if Francis Ford Coppola had cast Frank Sinatra as Vito Corleone in "The Godfather"? What if Ashton Kutcher had played Bruce Wayne in "Batman Begins"? The questions go on and on.
Auditions for "The Twilight Saga" drew every young actor with a half-decent agent. For this reason, there are plenty of "What If" scenarios with actors who have made names for themselves in other projects. Get More »
I am not a father, nor do I even pretend to know how to be a good one. (It involves owning a briefcase and knowing how to throw a baseball back and forth, I believe?)
However, I do know "The Twilight Saga." So with Father's Day coming up this weekend, I'm paying tribute to the dads from the series.
But who is the best "Twilight" dad? (Besides all of them?) Allow me to lay out the facts. Get More »
From the look of a slew of new images from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," you'd think everything was going to be just peachy in the world of Edward and Bella. But seriously, are things ever peachy in the on-going war between the Cullens, the wolf pack and the eternally ticked-off Volturi?
Summit has released eleven new images from the first half of the crescendoing finale to the "Twilight" series, primed to make you jealous of Edward and Bella's romantic honeymoon to Isle Esme. The new stills feature the regular cast assembling for the only 2011 wedding more anticipated than Prince William and Kate Middleton's nuptials, Edward and Bella's exotic getaway (even in a waterfall they're still embracing -- amazing!) and a few choice shots from later in the film.
Even with the book readily available for consumption, Summit and the "Breaking Dawn" team are being very, very secretive when it comes to their cinematic baby (which also happens to be half-vampire, half-human baby, coincidentally), but photos reveal threads from the second portion of the book.

Edward Cullen is without question the most iconic movie vampire of the 2000s. Critics cannot argue with that (go ahead, try to argue, critics; I'll wait). However, many take issue with "The Twilight Saga's" portrayal of vampires, complaining that it breaks many of the genre's "rules."
While it's true, does that really matter since it's all fiction, anyway? And aren't rules, as they say, meant to be broken? (Imagine if Batman still looked like this.) The answer depends on whom you ask.
In this week's column, I compare Edward with his blood-sucking predecessors, matching him up with the most iconic film vampire from each era. Get More »
"The Twilight Saga" has inspired a pretty insane amount of fan fiction, with Twi-Hards writing thousands upon thousands of new stories using Stephenie Meyer's characters and plotlines. Maybe it's because her work is so beloved -- or maybe it's because Meyer makes writing look easy.
I obviously enjoy her books, and she is The Godmother. But research isn't her strong point (historically, vampires neither sparkle nor stay abstinent). And bless her heart, but she doesn't exactly have an extensive vocabulary either (she uses "glower" at least 200 times in "New Moon").
Whatever the reason, the phenomenon has grown large enough to warrant attention. Last week I surprised myself by enjoying some "Twilight" fan fiction online. Sure, the writing can be incredibly bad and the plots paper-thin, but the kitsch factor alone makes it fun. And isn't that part of "Twilight's" appeal anyway? Get More »
