One of the creepier parts from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, aside from a grown man falling in love with a baby, was the very strange CG-created face that was grafted onto the child actors playing Bella and Edward’s offspring Renesmee.  It was downright weird, but it turns out that things could have been a whole lot creepier.  A new extra from the Twilight Forever Blu-ray box set reveals the animatronic version of Renesmee that was initially used on set for filming before eventually being tossed out.  The nickname for the doll was “Chuckesmee”, and it became clear that this thing was absolutely horrifying and would never work onscreen.  All of this was done in service to the source material, which describes the child as aging very rapidly.  The disturbing result begs the question: how did no one realize this was a terrible idea sooner?

    Stephanie Meyer’s TWILIGHT series is absolute garbage, but Bill Condon’s BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 is one of the most delightfully gonzo movies I’ve seen in the last ten years. The creepy CG-faced baby, the wonderfully awkward Jacob-Renesmenesmenes romance, Michael Sheen’s laugh, and a fight scene that is arguably the best super hero battle ever put on film. I kind of wish they had kept the robobaby just to add to the nightmarish insanity of the whole thing.

    Stephanie Meyer is a hack, but Bill Condon’s BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 might just make the whole damn thing worthwhile.

        I’d recalibrate that detector of yours, because there was not an ounce of sarcasm in that post. Or this one.

        wow. that movie was a piece of shit

    • The Flobbit

      I’m sorry, Illusion, but there is no way that battle was the best super hero battle ever put on film. No way. I agree that the movies were far superior to the books, but you have to remember that the movie was meant to be dead serious, and not gonzo. But to each his own…

        The source material is awful, and the script is garbage, to be sure, but if you think Bill Condon wasn’t aiming for high camp you’re kidding yourself. The last film is so wonderfully, intentionally goofy that I can’t dislike it.

      • Deludedof life

        nothing happens in it you deluded cunt – the end battle is all a premonition!

      • The Flobbit

        To each his own. Condon never appeared to me to be a campy, lighthearted director. In fact, the Twilight movies just drip with an air of self-satisfied melancholy.

        I have not even seen all of the last film, but yeah…whatever you want.

        I’d give it a shot. There’s a lot of standing around doing nothing (because, you know, it’s one half of a book that could barely sustain one movie), but when it gets to the good stuff it’s highly enjoyable. It’s not a good movie, but it’s by far the most enjoyable of the series and has a handful of legitimately great parts.

      • The Flobbit

        Nothing about Twilight is great and that is where I draw the line firmly. WATCHABLE, maybe even interesting to some, yes. Not great.

      • http://illusion0flife.wordpress.com/ IllusionOfLife

        As you’ve said a few times, to each his own, but that final battle scene in Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is legitimately excellent filmmaking. Well staged, well executed, exciting, and absolutely cheer-inducing. The fact that the dumb script pulls the rug out from under that scene in order to restore book canon doesn’t erase the fact that it is a capital-G Great scene.

      • The Flobbit

        I’m sorry. I can’t agree with you there and that’s the fact of the matter. I found it to be over-the-top and cartoony. The only moment I deemed decent was everyone running towards eachother. The head-ripping stuff was silly, but it was miles better than anything else Twilight had to offer.

        No hard feelings here – just a difference of opinions.

      • The Flobbit

        The real Capital-G Great (in modern movies) scenes are stuff like Helm’s Deep in Lord of the Rings, Hong Kong fight in Pacific Rim, the entire movie of Gravity, the subway fight in The Wolverine, Riddles in the Dark in The Hobbit, and the Batman/Joker interrogation scene.

      • http://illusion0flife.wordpress.com/ IllusionOfLife

        Those are all definitely great scenes, but they’re also very different types of scenes. For a fun, pulpy, campy, super-powered brawl, it really doesn’t get much better than Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

        And definitely no hard feelings; it’s always nice when someone in a comment thread can share a difference of opinions without resorting to petty name calling.

      • The Flobbit

        Fun and pulpy and campy, go the way of Indiana Jones, Captain America, first Spider-Man, the whole movie of Pacific Rim. And that’s like the ONE action scene in the entire movie. The entire franchise has maybe 45 minutes of action, and 3 hours of pining and teenage angst…

        Can I take this opportunity to point out that none of the main stars can act? Act well, I mean. The worst is Taylor Lautner, and I have no idea why anybody would actually like him. Abs maybe?

      • http://illusion0flife.wordpress.com/ IllusionOfLife

        Oh yeah, the acting is mostly terrible. It’s the worst combination of people who are hilariously terrible (Taylor Lauter and Jackson Rathbone) and people who openly despise the project they’re working on (Robert Pattison). At least Michael Sheen is gleefully weird in the last couple films.

      • The Flobbit

        Michael Sheen is the one redeeming factor. If even. And people joke about Kirsten Stewart being bad, and then say “No, she’s got range”. What, does range mean having one face the whole time, and then showing your boobs in a forgettable movie (mostly forgettable anyways)?

        And Robert Pattinson. If anyone tells you he’s a good actor, slap them hard. Maybe that’ll reset their brain.

    Props to the actors almost managing to not look horrified.

  • poppincherry

    I caught a few moments of twilight on cable. Complete bullshit from the CGI to the acting. Just a bunch of pretty ass folks suitable for an Aberrmbie and Fitch photo shoot.

    Oh my God please don’t show this to me again! *Screams loudly*
