Happy Birthday To The Volturi Guards!

Cameron Bright and Charlie Bewley in ‘New Moon’ – Summit Ent.

Yesterday, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse star Charlie Bewley (“Felix”) turned . . . uh . . . fourteen (or so he would have his Twitter followers believe). Today, too, his Volturi guard co-star Cameron Bright (“Alec”) celebrates a birthday (his seventeenth)!

Both Bewley and Bright portray some of the sourest and most-skilled of the Volturi’s guard, but they’ve proven themselves in fan circles to be two very nice young men.

Bewley’s work in the Twilight series has been a sort of jumping off point for his career, catapulting him into instant recognition and reception. Though, it should be said that Charlie Bewley’s involvement with the Vancouver Film School has been a source of many chuckles.

Bright, on the other hand, is hardly a film novice at all, despite his young age. He’s been in quite a few films, not the least of which are The Butterfly Effect, Godsend, Thank You For Smoking, X-Men: The Last Stand, Juno, and Ultraviolet. In all, Bright’s been on the entertainment circuit for a decade.

Their characters – if and when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn gets made – will be seen as a part of the saga for some time to come. So, a very happy birthday to these young men!

Cameron Bright Raises Money For Compartment Syndrome Victims

His The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse character’s ability to numb the senses might not be too far from reality.

Recently, Cameron Bright made his way to Salt Spring, British Columbia to raise money for a young lady who suffers from Compartment Syndrome.

According to local news on-site, Bright “was proposed to by a female in the crowd and was hugged by grinning teenage girls who found it hard to let go.”

The same publication reports that Bright signed over 200 autographs (at a couple of dollars apiece; funds going to the young lady’s family) and also participated in a Q&A after the event.

In the Q&A, Bright explained his motivation and background in approaching this fundraiser.

When I have time and am back at my house I try to do what I can for charities. My main one is JDRF — juvenile diabetes — and currently I am working to support Island KIA, a youth sports fundraiser in Nanaimo. Mike Best, who is from Salt Spring, has been working on this fundraiser with me, and that is how I came to hear about Jasmin Wilson. Mike mentioned there might be a role I could play, helping this family on Salt Spring in a way that might make their medical bills a little less. With Michael Levy, the Salt Spring cinema owner, Mike organized the autograph signing and question and answer session to raise funds for Jasmin and asked me to come to Salt Spring for this. I am really excited to do this, and I hope everyone in the community will come out and support it. It is important that we help Jasmin and her family however we can.

The Review Is In!

The Twilight Saga: New Moon” is the second movie based on the series of four vampire-based fantasy and romance books by author Stephenie Meyer. The New Moon movie continues the story of the first Twilight movie about the ill-fated romance between mortal Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, and vampire Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

New Moon finds Edward and Bella settling into life as high school sweethearts in Forks, Washington, although she’s already worrying about future complications.
She wakes on her 18th birthday from a dream in which she has turned into her grandmother while 108-year-old Edward has remained his perennially youthful, undead self.
This scenario has become common. We’ve seen variations on the theme of time playing tricks in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Time Traveller’s Wife and Dorian Gray. Welcome to the Botox generation’s nightmare…read more [Stuff.co.nz]

In the first movie, Edward memorably described Bella as “my own personal brand of heroin” and, in the months that follow, her heartbreak resembles a form of cold turkey whose symptoms include nightmares, listlessness and being followed around by a maudlin indie soundtrack.
When she discovers her ravenous Romeo’s image appears whenever she’s facing danger, Bella starts flirting with disaster, riding motorbikes and jumping off cliffs in increasingly desperate bids to see her true love one last time. Meanwhile she attracts the affections of local Indian Jacob (Taylor Lautner) who has a monstrous secret of his own…read more [Mirror.co.uk]

 

New Moon - Robert Pattinson

Under Chris Weitz’s direction, the actors have gained some confidence, and this chaste love triangle among creatures of the night has all the requisite looks of tortured longing. What it misses is any animating pulse: we just wait and wait for the bleeding obvious. The movie is best enjoyed for its dowdy sops to teen culture — vampires with email addresses, lycanthropes with six-packs — but for anyone on the outside looking in, the insulation of the characters from real danger makes it a bit of a drag…read more [Telegraph.co.uk]

Weitz brings a few more flickers of humour to the narrative, but the essential, appealing earnestness of the book remains, whole-heartedly embraced. New Moon is a story about longing, and loss, and the dangers of desire. For its screen incarnation, one of its strongest elements is the performance of Stewart. There’s a toughness and introspection to her characterisation of Bella, but there’s also something vulnerable and youthful in her depiction of the pain, the immediacy and the extremes of adolescent yearning…read more [TheAge]

Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, New Moon

Stewart is the heart and soul of the film, and not only because her Bella is surrounded by characters who literally have neither one nor the other. She gives both weight and depth to dialogue (”You’re just warm. You’re like your own sun”) that would sound like typical chick-lit blather in the mouth of a less engaging actress, and she makes Bella’s psychological wounds seem like the real deal…read more [Variety]

The acting has improved enormously since Twilight, particularly in the case of Taylor Lautner, who delivers a strong, likeable performance as Jacob and has genuine chemistry with Stewart. The plot is much more engaging this time round too, both emotionally and dramatically, though Pattinson’s legions of screaming fans may be disappointed by his relative lack of screen time.
Pattinson and Stewart are both good and there’s strong support from Ashley Greene (as Alice Cullen) and Anna Kendrick (as Bella’s non-vampire friend Jessica), whilst Dakota Fanning makes a memorable impression as Jane, a sinister member of the Volturi…read more [ViewLondon.co.uk]

It’s not exactly a celebration of female independence, but New Moon still has a handle on its young-adult audience: Hormonal frustration runs amok, and boys become attractive yet dangerous when they come of age (only the good ones keep their monsters in check). This time, we get not just vampires but werewolves, too—spectacular CG creatures that snarl and pounce before transforming back into buff, topless young studs…read more [TimeOut]

Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz, New Moon

New Moon effortlessly sweeps you along in a swirl of intoxicating passion. New Moon has one major flaw, being a supernatural adventure it seems to be packed with too much of romance. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart carry great performance from Twilight. The screenplay at times seems weak but can surely make patient characters stick to their seats.
The movie won’t disappoint the majority of its teenage fans. But it is a let down for many Twilight fans who felt that Catherine Hardwicke who had directed the first flick had improved upon Stephenie Meyer’s novel. New Moon doesn’t seem to justify why Chris Weitz was chosen over Catherine Hardwicke. At 112 minutes of runtime New Moon seems ideal for a romantic tale of this sort. Although no comparison to Twilight, New Moon is certainly a movie worth spending a few bucks on…read more [OneIndia]
