When Movies Are Funny (When They're Not Supposed to Be)
I was re-watching Twilight a couple days ago and Bella said a couple of things that just really, really made me laugh. Apparently, I hadn't noticed them before. Let me illustrate:
Edward: *throwing things around, pointing out that he could kill someone so easily, trying to scare Bella off* I'm. Designed. To Kill.
Bella: I don't care.
Me: HA! HA! HA HA HA HA HA!
I don't know why, but that struck me as funny. "I don't care." She said it instantly, like she really meant it. (Did she? The world will never know...)
And movies can be funny like that. Things are so obvious at times, and then the characters go and do something so dumb that it's hilariously funny.
Example: Edward and Bella had clarified that he was a vampire, that he wanted to kill her, blah, blah, blah...
So Bella's sitting there, and she gets up, and you hear a voice over say:
"There were three things I was sure about. First; Edward was a vampire."
And we all just burst out laughing. (By 'we' I mean my family, because we all kind of ended up watching it together). I wanted to say, "Oh, you don't say? He's a vampire?"
"Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominate that part might be, that thirsted for my blood."
Okay, Bella. You keep right on loving him.
"And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him."
Did I call that or what?!
It's like in horror movies, when the characters go down a dark hall WITHOUT turning on lights. Isn't the first thing you'd do, upon hearing a creepy noise or seeing a ghost in your house, turn on a light? But instead, NO! The idea just slips away from them! Instead they're going to APPROACH the noise, without a WEAPON, ALONE, in THE DARK. Makes perfect sense, eh?
Don't get me wrong. I love Twilight. I just find it funny at times. And, hey, it's fun to make fun of.
