#60: Commentary on the Commentary! Eclipse with Rob & Kristen

January 19, 2021

Commentary on the commentary is back! Join us as we overanalyze Rob and Kristen's conversations from the 2010's Eclipse movie commentary. Those were flirty jokes between them, right? Was Rob making fun of Taylor? Was some dialogue cut out? Plus, sound clips! ♡ 

#59: Dan, the Former Twilight Hater, Returns for Eclipse & Breaking Dawn

#59: Dan, the Former Twilight Hater, Returns for Eclipse & Breaking Dawn

January 5, 2021

When Dan was young he mindlessly hated the Twilight series and would routinely delete the Cullen Mii characters Mel created on the Wii. Now that we’re older, Dan has decided to give the movies a shot. He joins us to discuss Eclipse and Breaking Dawn parts 1 and 2, which he watched for the first time.

 

If you heard him last year, you’ll remember Dan’s a hilarious and insightful guy. Is Renesmee a parallel for the birth of Jesus?? That’s just one of the many things Dan brings up…

 

P.S. We recorded over Zoom so please forgive us if the audio is less than great.

#58: Untold Stories of the Twilight Saga - The Storytellers Short Films

December 22, 2020

We thought Twilight was over for good with the last Breaking Dawn movie... but in 2014, The Storytellers: New Voices of the Twilight Saga short films debuted. Mel and Kel discuss the seven shorts that feature characters like Alice, Jasper, Carlisle, Esme, Benjamin, Garrett, Jane, Alec, and Aro.

We finally did it, it’s the Kristen Stewart episode! Here are over two hours to pay tribute to the Twilight Saga’s star, our leading lady, our everything. We’ll take you through Kristen’s childhood, teen years, the Twilight days, and everything she’s been up to since. Who is she as a person??? That’s what we’re trying to find out…

#56- Reading Twilight & New Moon Book Outtakes!

November 24, 2020

The movies aren’t the only ones with “deleted scenes.” Stephenie Meyer has shared excerpts that she cut out of the first two Twilight books, and Kel and Mel are here to discuss!

But first, we have a little debate about starting Christmas before Thanksgiving, and watch the deleted scenes we missed last episode (oops!). You’ll hear sound clips for those and then we get into the book outtakes, some of which we LOVED, some not as much.

P.S. Kelly tried with minimal DIY skills to fix the sound this week, but it does sound slightly less good because we recorded over the phone. But as we’ve said…just like the first Twilight movie, we’re super low budget.

#55- Deleted Scenes: Did They Make the Right Call?

November 12, 2020

You guys asked for it—we watched and discussed the deleted scenes in Twilight and New Moon! For each scene, we asked: should they have kept it in the movie, or was it the right choice to cut? 

In this episode, you can also expect: Kelly laughing for way too long at a scene that reminded us of "The Office" and "The Room"...how the Hales are "the bad kids"...scenes *in* the movies that feel like they should have been deleted...and a review of Midnight Sun by Kelly's mom! We'll be back with Eclipse and Breaking Dawn soon, stay tuned. ♡

Hi guys, due to some scheduling conflicts, the latest episode will be a few days late. We'll see you this ~Twilight Thursday~. And the topic? ...Deleted scenes from the movies! Should they have stayed in? Good that they were cut?

We apologize again for the delay!

#54- Midnight Sun: The Last Chapters

October 27, 2020

It’s the end of an era! It’s the last episode covering Midnight Sun. :( Though it’s sad, we had a lot of fun with the final chapters...

Carlisle is suspected of plastic surgery. Kel & Mel rank the Cullen men. Kelly says the word “crazy” probably a hundred times. We analyze Bella’s parents and James’ classic villain monologue. Plus, Stephenie Meyer’s very interesting acknowledgments page at the end. How does Midnight Sun’s word count compare to the Bible? We’ll tell you!

October 13, 2020

This is probably our second-to-last episode covering Midnight Sun. Nooo! In these chapters, Bella and Edward go to “the Carlisle’s house” for the first time and Edward thinks about his time apart from his father. Jasper likes being near Bella, they play baseball, and the nomads show up. Laurent has the hots for Rosalie, and Alice is a very minimal texter, it turns out!

Before we sat down to record we said, “Okay no tangents this time.” Well, there were a lot of tangents (attachment styles, birthdays, astrology, random scene in Eclipse) and it’s a long episode! But hope you enjoy.

Last time we shared our dislike for Bella’s favorite candy, black licorice. Some of you defended black licorice so we decided to have a taste test on the episode! Then we get into the book: the Cullens attend funerals of the people they kill, Edward wears a perplexing sleeveless shirt, and Bella and Edward FINALLY KISS! Stay tuned to the end of the episode where we DRINK BLOOD!
