Of COURSE I’m Posting About This

June 1, 2009

At least in the movies, Jacob may finally get the following he deserves; it’s like payback for all us Team Jacob folks who had to watch Jacob get the shaft time and time again in the books. Let’s be honest, Robert Pattinson is totally the wrong guy to play Edward (heresy, I know, but it must be said).

And, while I’m on the topic of Twilight, for those of you who are also Mortal Instruments fans, I saw this hilariously awesome shirt on Wondrous Reads that has a picture of the City of Glass cover on the front and this text on the back “Dear Edward and Jacob, I adore you both, but I’m spending the weekend with Jace. Sorry! Love, Stephenie.”

How awesome is that? (Hint: Very Awesome).

    Holy Moly… Jacob is HOT! I may just become a Jacob fan because of this actor.

    I completely agree. When reading the book Edward and the vampire thing seemed so incredibly hot. In the movie, and maybe it’s just because Robert’s playing Edward (he’s grown on me but he’s still not the right guy), the werewolf thing seems so much hotter. Now Jacob was a scrawny nerd in the first one but wow, he looks smokin in this one!

    He’s got some nice muscles on him. I do think this one looks a tad better than the first. 🙂

    I got goosebumps when we watched this preview last night during the awards, and I got them again when I watched it just now. I’m such a teenage girl deep inside! In the books, I liked Edward so much better. I hated most of New Moon because Jacob was in so much of it. After seeing this preview, though, I don’t think I’ll mind seeing a lot of Jacob considering he’s much nicer to look at then Edward is.

    This morning I watched the trailer about 4 times, and then made my husband come watch it too. LOVE the werewolf transition.

    I can understand membership on Team Jacob (I love him too, just not as much as Edward), but really? YOu don’t think RP is the right guy? Because I think he has ceased to be Robert. He IS Edward.

    But I can agree that I love love LOVE that it looks like Jacob is going to rock New Moon.

    I actually like Robert Pattison as Edward. (It is the wardrobe person that needs to be shot.) I just don’t like how he has appeared everywhere since then as if he is on par with Brad Pitt or something. Two words Rob: chest wax. Oh, wait, two more: work out.

    As for Jacob . . . he is probably my favorite pathetic character in the whole pathetic series. And, for the record, I’ve always been a team Jacob girl.

    PS Is the preview weird? The pretty much showed the whole first ten minutes of the movie (and finally got Edward OUT of that pea coat), but hardly any of the story . . . interesting.

    yay! i can’t wait. thanks for the “preview” 🙂 can’t we be fans of both? do i really have to choose?

    You beat me to the post. The trailer looks amazing and I can’t wait to see the movie. I am Team Edward, but can’t deny I am impressed with Taylor as Jacob. I have to disagree with you concerning Robert as Edward, I really enjoy him as the character.

    RIGHT ON! Jacob ROCKS!

    Right on! I am so excited about this movie. Did you see the "trailer" on youtube with the scene in Italy. Also good — for youtube. Also, where have the Mortal Instruments been my whole life? Such good books. It's been awhile since I've found a page turner.

    Yeah Jacob is a HUNK in this- and Robert Pattinson is totally the right Edward- Bella on the other hand…

  • Reply Kaitlyn June 2, 2009 at 3:26 am

    AHEM. Team Edward, team Pattinson. 100%.

    At least we’re both on team Twilight 🙂

  • Reply Miriam June 2, 2009 at 3:59 am

    Wow, was that the same Jacob from the first movie? BIG improvement! Robert Pattison was kind of growing on me until I listened to the narration of the actors explaining the movie on the DVD and he was such a dork. Giggled like a girl 🙁 In the books I wanted Edward to win Bella, but in the movies I’m not so sure. And I originally liked Bella in the movie, but now I’m not so sure, no emotional range – she’s always the same, not sure if it’s the actress or just the character. But I’m still totally looking forward to the movie – have it marked on my calendar!

    Is it okay to be team Edward in the books and team Jacob in the movies?

    Robert Pattison….hate.

  • Reply Marie June 2, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    Sorry, I’m not really into the underdogs. Jacob may be hot, but he just always seemed so whiny to me…

  • Reply Miri June 3, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    Haha that is a pretty awesome shirt.
    Also, I totally don't understand the Rob Pattinson fanaticism. That's all.

  • Reply ambrosia ananas June 4, 2009 at 6:02 am

    Totally agreed on Robert Pattison. Actually, I don't love what's-her-face, either. She just feels so thirty. And while I'm complaining, I *hate* that CGI of Jacob-as-wolf.

  • Reply Erin June 6, 2009 at 6:23 pm

    Oh how happy I am to see someone shares my opinion! I'm eons late in reading the series, but everyone I know adores Edward. I am absolutely team Jacob and think "movie Edward" does not remotely match book Edward in my head. I really don't see his appeal. But um, Jacob? Yes please (even though it feels rather cougar-y at the ripe old age of 29)!
