Characters that got the shaft in the movie Vol. 1: Jasper

Jasper_Cullen

Dear Jasper –

I’ve been thinking about this for a while now since I first saw the movie and now that I’m rereading Twilight (again). I’ve come to a conclusion Jasper: I think you got royally screwed in the movie. You (as well as some others I will cover in later posts) got screwed out of some majorly needed character development and denied one of the most powerful and in my personal opinion one of the BEST scenes from the book. You know the one… if you’ve got your bibles Twilight books handy it’s on page 404, near the end after the baseball scene they’re in the garage and everyone has run off to chase after James and Victoria while Alice and Jasper take Bella to Phoenix. Bella and Jasper are alone in the garage and this exchange takes place…

Jasper and I looked at each other. He stood across the length of the entryway from me… being careful.

“You’re wrong, you know,” he said quietly.

“What?” I gasped.

I can feel what you’re feeling now — and you are worth it.”

“I’m not,” I mumbled. “If anything happens to them, it will be for nothing.”

“You’re wrong,” he repeated, smiling kindly at me.

jasperaliceAmazing, isn’t it? Calm, cool reassuring Jasper says one of the most profound ideas of the entire saga, the whole basis for why they put themselves in danger, the reasoning behind Edward’s love for her. That above all else SHE’S WORTH IT! And it was not in the movie! What were they thinking? They added in some totally necessary parts and left THIS gem out? I really can’t quite understand that. Not only was this amazing scene cut from the movie we also never really learn fully about your abilities, Jasper. It’s mentioned that you’re “special” like Edward and Alice but they never explain how or why. Instead Jackson is forced to play Jasper as some sort of Edward Scissorhands caricature with crazy eyes and a serious need for Immodium AD. When really he’s a much deeper character with very deep emotions.

I understand the limitations of film but I still think you got screwed and I can only hope that they get it right from here on out with not only your character Jasper but with a lot of other ones. And while we’re at it can you tell Stephenie Meyer once she’s through finishing Midnight Sun she can start on the Alice/Jasper story. I’m DYING simply DYING to know more! I need to read the diner scene and get all ooey gooey with some Jasper and Alice love.

Soothe me Jasper,

Now don’t jump the gun… this is volume ONE and we have plenty of other characters to talk about!

Don’t let the good times end, head over to the forum and today’s daily chat!

Told you all they weren’t in Vancouver yet

Dear people in the media who jump to conclusions instead of doing research like you were taught in your 2nd day of undergrad,

I told you the cast wasn’t in Vancouver yet.  (Okay, I didn’t tell you- but I can provide e-mail PROOF where I wrote it to many friends in the past few days.. and I meant to post something yesterday about the “crazies” believing the “lies,” but I got busy.. I am a busy gal, what with all the making out I do with my Edward Cullen pillowcase Robert Pattinson.)

When I first read what Melissa Rosenberg said, I immediately knew it was taken out of context or her words were mixed around. Here is what she supposedly said:

“I can tell you the original cast will all be coming back. They’re on set right now, in Vancouver! They’re all up there prepping the movie to start shooting very soon.”

My guess, from the first moment I read this, was that she said “I can tell you the original cast will all be coming back,” and then the interviewer said- “Yeah- I hear Taylor is too! Awesome. He’s looking smokin’ hot and a little like Adam Brody. I bet everyone is itchin’ to start filming” to which Melissa said “They’re on set right now, in Vancouver! They’re all up there prepping…”

Immediately I said… duh- the crew is in Vancouver.. prepping. B/c last I checked, “big” stars like KStew and Rob aren’t setting up mics, lighting and staging. I mean, maybe I’m wrong.. maybe Rob signed up to be on catering crew this time around b/c of his love for making tuna melts. Yeah, that must be it. You’re right, I’m wrong. Rob IS in Vancouver.

Also, I’ve actually some posts on blogs “Congratulating” Rob and Kristen for getting to Vancouver without being filmed and/or photographed. OMG! THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE! Those days are OVER! If Kristen gets filmed at the VET (which she did yesterday, in case you’ve been living under a rock- and if you are living under a rock and still read this blog, please e-mail us, I want to give you a prize), do you think it’s actually possible for her to go to LAX or Rob to Heathrow without anyone catching them? NO WAY JOSE!

A hilarious friend and I were discussing the absurdity of this  “Twilight news” today and she said she’s praying that the psycho crazies who don’t do their research (or just DON’T think logically) already made the trip up to Vancouver, expecting to see Rob, but instead have found nothing but gaffers, Best Boys and 3rd assistant directors. SUCKERS!

Plus, unless you live in a small tiny box in the middle of the words with no friends or internet connection, everyone has heard about all the snow in London.  There’s been no buses running and over 800 flights were canceled.  Rob’s ass is at home, staying out ’til 3 am, sleeping ’til noon and only waking when his mama tells him to come down and eat his Wheatbix. Rob is in the SNOW. Just like me! I feel connected to him already.

So seriously, media people and bloggers who believe the absurdity, just take a second and think it through… the cast is NOT in Vancouver. (and I’m really pissed about it because my plane ticket here was NOT cheap.. plus I’ve been laying naked on my hotel bed for the past 24 hours, covered in rose petals waiting for Rob to get the note & room key I left on the beat-up BMW I saw outside of the hotel, and I really have to pee)

Kristen is PISSED cuz Michael told her she CANNOT have a tuna melt if Rob had any part in making it. And she REALLY loves Tuna melts

Love,
UnintendedChoice xo

How about your put your dissapointment about Rob still being in the UK* into a poem or something for our Twi-alentines day contest!

*dissapointment does not apply to fans in UK who never want him to leave.
