Movie Review: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1″

Summary:  After a long-awaited marriage and some rough sex, Bella is in a delicate condition.  Not just because she is pregnant but because a half-human and half-vampire fetus isn’t exactly an easy pregnancy — the fetus is killing Bella. Will Bella die? Will the fetus die? Where’s Dakota Fanning?  Where’s Taylor Lautner’s shirt?  Who cares?  It’s Twilight!  The cast could speak an alien language for two hours and fans would be satisfied.

Review: Oh, Twilight. Regardless of the director (this time around it’s Dreamgirls director Bill Condon), the script, the cheese-ball acting or the uninterested actors—this is a guarantee hit.  Twilight knows where the money is: the first 10 seconds is a shirtless Taylor Lautner. That’s right; give the audience what they want immediately.

Lautner’s abs upstage the first half of the film, which is a mixture between an Ikea ad and a Valentine’s Day commercial for Macy’s: Bella prepping for the wedding, Bella marrying, Bella flouncing around the beach, Bella playing chess and Bella spread out in bed with overly dramatic ominous stares from Edward. The first hour could’ve been shaved down to 15 minutes.

By the second hour, some interesting storylines kick in. After violent — and awkwardly filmed — sex with Edward, she is pregnant. Like an episode of Mystery Diagnosis the bundle of vampire joy is killing Bella and no one knows how to save mother and child. Surprisingly, with more adult themes, Breaking Dawn Part 1 tiptoes out of teen dream land and becomes pieces of a good film. A graphic birthing scene and interesting plot twists made for the best Twilight since the original. Or maybe I had such lowered expectations that I was hoodwinked into believing Breaking Dawn was a good film.

Regardless of a redemptive ending, Breaking Dawn ruins itself with the same ingredients as the previous duds.  The embarrassing dialogue: “Let’s start with forever” or “Last night was the best night of my existence.” Gag me with a spoon!

Then there is the cast who would probably would have no interest in the Twilight if they weren’t already entrenched in it. Kristen Stewart once again appears to be fatigued with Bella and more than likely continues with the role because she feels obligated. Robert Pattison clearly isn’t taking any of the hoopla seriously, looking dazed and confused by the attention. Taylor Lautner, who I still feel has the potential to be the next Tom Cruise or Will Smith, is the one who seems to “get it,” not looking down on the role of Jacob, realizing if he could just get the right script — clearly Abduction wasn’t it — and director he could be a credible actor.  But it doesn’t matter; these are pretty people with vampire and werewolf problems.

Aside from acting, dialogue and overdone special effects, the biggest flaw: The virginal and pro-life Bella Swan is marrying a man who will eventually take her soul, Edward. Yep, in order to have that man, Miss Bella must lose her soul.  While the film clearly promotes a conservative pro-life and abstinence agenda, the message of “lose everything for a man” is disappointing.  If I were a father with a teenage girl, I would have a long talk with my daughter and say, “Bella Swan is exactly who you shouldn’t emulate in a relationship.”

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is in theaters today.

Movie Review: “Abduction”

Published by Clay Cane on Friday, September 23, 2011 at 8:00 am.

Summary: A constantly shirtless teenager, Nathan Price (Taylor Lautner), feels lost in his perfect suburban world.  After some web searches, he discovers his parents are not who he thought they were.  Soon after, they are murdered and Nathan is unable to trust anyone.  Dragging along a random neighbor who he’s had a crush on for years, Nathan is on the run from the CIA and a band of bad men.

Review: Let’s start here: Taylor Lautner was paid 7.5 million for his first starring role in Abduction.  The early reviews are as bad as Catwoman, but the John Singleton-directed film is not for critics — or anyone who isn’t female and under the age of 18. The action flick is catering to a very specific audience and it isn’t me – and it probably isn’t people who read film reviews.  Who knows if the film will resonate with his core audience, but if it does Team Jacob could have an official hit.

Abduction is a below average film, but it’s exactly the type of movie Lautner should be pumping out at this point in his career — a junkfood movie that is all candy and no meat.  Motorcycles, pool parties, underage drinking and cheerleaders are the film’s main ingredients — then the teen dreams are suddenly pretty people with problems.  Yes, it’s terribly unoriginal and is at the bottom of the barrel of other films that have done this much better — but what do audiences expect from Lautner?  The pretty boy got his start in Twilight, which is no cinematic masterpiece.  Does Abduction suck? Yes! Does it matter? No!

Thankfully, Lautner does has a strong presence on-screen and it’s possible the 19-year-old could have a career in the likes of Johnny Depp or Keanu Reeves (two actors who began in films that weren’t loved by the critics).  When he is ready, he will need a film that can showcase his talent beyond his bone structure and torso.

Within the first 15 minutes Lautner is half-naked — the Oscar nominated John Singleton clearly knows what his fans want. About 15 minutes later he is kicking butt and saving a damsel in distress. A shirtless hero? He could be on the cover of a Fabio romantic novel.

The dialogue is utterly painful, pulverizing any acting skills the cast might have. Even the legendary Sigourney Weaver, who plays a therapist with a secret, can’t make her one-liners digestible. Then there is the chemistry between Lautner and his love interest, played by Lily Collins, which is comical and uncomfortable. Collins’ character has no depth as the one-dimensional stock pretty girl.

The premise would’ve worked with a stronger script: a boy on the run after the people who he thought were his parents are undercover agents and brutally murdered.  Again, this could have doable in the way of Taken.  But why develop a tight script when you have Lautner?

I wouldn’t know Abduction was a John Singleton film unless you told me.  There is no grit or signature raw energy that Singleton is known for.  Yes, when the action sequences kick-in, the movie is enjoyable. Lautner, who did most of his own stunts, was believable and commanding.  But, all of the moments in between the action (soft kisses, long stares and whiny dialogue)  were dreadful. Only other plus: while the leads are not people of color, John Singleton had a refreshing diverse supporting cast: Antonique Smith (Notorious), Denzel Whitaker (The Great Debaters) and others.

Overall, this genre film is for the tweens and teens, but Abduction is destined to live in the discount DVD bin along another 2011 action dud – Colombiana.

Abduction is in theaters today.

Ten Worst Films of 2010; Cast Your Vote

Published by Clay Cane on Monday, December 20, 2010 at 8:00 am.

2010 has been a rough year for films.  Sequels, remakes and false advertising have overcrowded movie theaters this year.  Check out my selections for the worst films of the year. Also, cast your vote below!

10. Iron Man 2Aesthetically, Iron Man 2 is a polished flick. Plot-wise, it’s almost as bad as Catwoman.

9. Wall Street: Money Never SleepsNot enough Gordan Gekko!  Money Never Sleeps is like watching two hours straight of CNBC, which is great if that is your channel of choice, but not a triumph for a feature-length film.

8. Eat Pray Love

At the end of the two-and-a-half hours we get to the same point of all the other stereotypical chick flicks. This is an overly intellectual version of any other Jennifer Lopez or Kate Hudson romantic comedy.

7. DaybreakersDespite a few jumps in your seat and some hilarious explosions of body parts, I’ve seen better special effects in a Nintendo DS video game and stronger plot lines on the back of a Count Chocula cereal box.

6. The Twilight Saga: EclipseThe most troublesome blow is the archaic message of a girl who will abandon everything for a boy – friends, mother, father and even her soul. This is a character whose only identity is her boyfriend; Bella Swan sets women in film back 50 years.

5. Valentine’s DayNot since Madonna in Who’s That Girl? have I seen such an annoying pop star performance as Taylor Swift’s in this movie. The only thing that could’ve saved her jittery acting is if Kanye West had stormed her scenes. That might’ve resulted in an Oscar nod for Miss Taylor! With a movie that looks splattered with Pepto Bismol, Valentine’s Day actually made me despise Valentine’s Day even more.

4. Clash of the TitansWhat really morphed Clash of the Titans into cinematic stone is the 3-D.  After Avatar, everyone believes they are James Cameron. Avatar was successful in 3-D because of its groundbreaking visuals. Titans in 3-D only magnifies the unrealistic and cheap special effects. Scene after scene, it’s clear this is the dollar-store version of Avatar.

3. A Nightmare on Elm StreetFreddy’s 2010 makeover made him look like a burn victim meets a Na’vi creature from Avatar. Also, for a movie that is about its characters fighting sleep to survive, it’s a shame Elm Street induces a few REM-driven naps.

2. CatfishCatfish is the worst case of false advertising in cinematic history.  Even if the film’s promotion wasn’t misleading, Catfish is still lackluster at best. There is nothing fresh about the content, which can be seen on any late night news special.

1. The WolfmanI’d rather watch Teen Wolf on repeat than yawn through The Wolfman again. It’s the type of movie where you can fall asleep for 20 minutes, wake up and realize you didn’t miss a thing.

Movie Review: ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’

Published by Clay Cane on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 8:00 am.

Summary: It’s the third time around for the werewolves and vampires of Forks, Washington. A breed of newborn blood-suckers want to destroy the vegan vampires of Forks and are out to kill Bella Swan, who is struggling with her love between Edward and Jacob. Who will Bella choose? Will she become a vampire? How many times will Taylor Lautner show his teenage abs? Does Robert Pattinson have abs and why isn’t he at least flashing a nipple? These are the deep questions The Twilight Saga: Eclipse ponders.

Review: It doesn’t matter what critics write about Twilight.   It has immunity from critics and a phenomenon never requires much work. The creators of Twilight aren’t hustling to make a movie, they aren’t concerned about a solid plot; the money was in the bank before the cameras started rolling. Like anything in life, if you know you don’t have to work for something, then you’re not going to try too hard. The only standard of this franchise is to pimp out the brown boy’s abs and give the UK dude as much screen time as possible.

That said, Eclipse is an improvement from the ho-hum New Moon. Directed by David Slade, who was behind one of my favorite recent films, Hard Candy, Eclipse was edgier, darker and smarter than the sequel — but not better than the first, which was only moderately enjoyable. Slade sprinkled some violent action with hardcore fighting scenes. Plus, the horror-ish presence of Dakota Fanning as Jane made the film a bit more sophisticated.

The most redeeming quality was giving the audience backstories for several other characters and a well-needed break from exhaustive dialogue between Bella and her supernatural love interests. We learn one vampire was forced into a life of blood cravings after being sexually assaulted, another lived during the Civil War, and we get the story of the indigenous werewolves of Washington. Finally, the wit goes beyond diary entries for a 14-year-old girl. These pieces helped make Eclipse watchable for those who aren’t “Twihards.”

Eclipse is a modest upgrade, but Robert Pattinson and especially Kristen Stewart looked bored with Edward and Bella. Stewart, who gave a memorable performance as Joan Jett in The Runaways, has true acting chops, but plays Bella like a female lead in a ’90s grunge video. She trembles her lips, tucks her hair behind one ear and gives long stares. In The Runaways or even Panic Room, Stewart was enthusiastic and clearly putting some soul into her work.  She once described acting as being a “professional liar.” Well, there are still two more Twilights to go — suck it up and act like you want to be there!

Pattinson is slightly more engaged, but from his press interviews to his performance, he seems to not really understand or care why the movie is such a huge phenomenon (I’m with you Rob!). I am sure if Pattinson wasn’t the star of Twilight he wouldn’t have watched the film. The English actor, who is six years older than Lautner, seems more fitting for artsy Guy Ritchie films than disposable teen fluff.

Taylor Lautner is the strongest of the three, maybe because he is still a teenager. Lautner successfully makes some of his cheese ball lines believable. He enjoys Jacob, but is probably confident this role will not define his entire career.

Eclipse definitely has some major holes, for example, the cheap special effects that are similar to an annoying cough that you have to live with for two hours — the lifeless werewolves are a celluloid disaster.

Don’t forget the trite, redundant dialogue mixed with the way that each scene lazily flops together.

But, the most troublesome blow is the message of Twilight. I am not one to believe that films must maintain a moral code, but this flick clearly has an effect on young girls and women. On one hand, Eclipse has a message of pro-abstinence yet endorses a girl willing to abandon everything for a boy — friends, mother, father, career and even her soul. This is a character whose only identity is her boyfriend. Again, I know this is just a film, but this is such an archaic and dangerous message conforming to the staid ’50s stereotype that a woman should stand by her man even if it comes at the price of her soul. Bella Swan is a cinematic example. When scholars critique Twilight years from now (like Disney films were critiqued) she will be the archetype for the obsessive pitfalls of love; Bella sets women in film back 50 years.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is in theaters now.

J’Nara Corbin Guest Blogs: Team Jacob or Team Edward?

Published by Clay Cane on Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at 4:01 pm.

I don’t know about you, but if a vampire does not burst into flames in sunlight it’s not a true vampire in my book! Stephenie Meyer took a timeless tale of terrifying creatures of old and exercised artistic liberty to create a clan of blood-sucking, teen-loving, glitter-glowing vamps that have taken the modern-day movie-going world by storm. Everyone and their mommas (literally tweens to 30-somethings) are caught up in this romantic yet radical tale of teen angst. The third installment of the Twilight series, Eclipse, hits theaters tomorrow, and after seeing the film last night, now is the time to finally choose a side. Are you on Team Edward or Team Jacob?

There comes a time in every girl’s life when she has to decide what type of guy she should “tie her soul to.” I have quite a few years and more melanin on Kristen Stewart’s character, Bella, but I’m still trying to figure the type I want to be tied to. But why do I have to be tied? Can’t I just be cuddled?

Well, how in the world is Bella supposed to decide before the credits roll? Here are the choices. You have the bad boy, in this case a vampire that promises you a lifetime of youth and unbridled yearning. Robert Pattinson’s character, Edward, has got Bella caught up in his boyish charm and old school chivalry, even though he’s cold as stone and has no beating heart… Well, girls, they’re never perfect!

A life with Edward will keep Bella forever young by becoming an ageless vampire – even if she has no soul. This factor is a definite plus in today’s society. Masses of women are fighting the aging process armed with the 3 Bs: Botox, breast lifts, and occasional bulimia. No one wants to get old. I, too, have a hang up with openly sharing my age; perhaps it has something to do with my Southern upbringing. A lady never tells her age and a gentleman should never ask! So, I can definitely see why girls of all ages would sign up for Team Edward.

On the other hand, you have the boy next door. Taylor Lautner’s character, Jacob Black, is a part-time werewolf, who unconditionally (even if you also love a pale-faced vampire) loves you for who you are — even when the wrinkles come a few years later.  The 30-something woman who sat beside me in the theater was banking on that… she swooned every time Lautner’s rippled eight-pack abs made a cameo.  I can appreciate the beauty of that brown boy, and I have been known to say, “If you can’t find a good man, you might as well raise one!”  Nonetheless, I’m still well aware of the fact that he is a boy. I shot that woman side-eye stares every time she sighed, all while thinking, “Girl, get yourself together, you could be his momma!”

What is a girl of any age to do? I for one have decided to sign up for Team Jacob for two reasons. One, putting a spin on Wesley Snipes’ catch phrase, “Always bet on Black,” I believe that “ You are insured with the indigenous!” — shout out to my Meherrin Tribe!  Two, although the fantasy of being forever young is enticing, growing older is a reality for everyone. The thought of being with a man without the requirement of losing my soul and him kissing my eventual crows feet — ladies (and boys) that sounds absolutely wonderful to me!

Twilight: Eclipse is in theatres tomorrow.

Twilight Fans Were Upset With Black Vampire

Published by Clay Cane on Thursday, November 19, 2009 at 1:02 am.

TwilightYesterday, I attended a screening of the sequel to Twilight, the  highly anticipated New Moon, which is in theaters this Friday. Like most vampire movies, Black people are little to none, but there is one loc-headed vampire who was in the first and this new installment. Edi Gathegi is vampire Laurent and in an interview with Black Voices the actor revealed he received backlash about his color from some Twilight fans:

“There was actually some fan backlash when I got cast, because people didn’t see Laurent being black. In the book, he’s described at being olived-toned, and I decided to address the issue head on. I did an interview where I said, ‘The character is described as olive-toned, but there are many patches of olives. Black olives anyone?’ I think the fans responded to that, and they immediately gave me an open reception after the interview. I think that they did a great job in casting colorblind, because it makes it more accessible to many groups of people, and for African Americans to see me in the film, they know that they are being represented.”

What a shame Edi had to justify his validity in a movie with an example of olives because some “fans” cried they wanted everyone pale and White.  Furthermore, when is there racial strife among vampires?  Aren’t they soulless, but somehow sexual, bloodsuckers?  Lawd…

Oh, and if you are wondering, the kid who has a serious brown tan, Taylor Lautner (for a minute, I thought he was pulling a Jessica “Don’t Call Me Latina” Alba), is not Black or Latin.  According to Wikipedia he is, “mostly Dutch, French, and German descent, and claims some Native American (specifically Ottawa and Potawatomi).”  He got Indian in his family?!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a full review of The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
