If I seem dazed and confused, I am. Last month I had to start taking blood-pressure medication. If I weren’t taking psychiatric medication, this wouldn’t be a problem. But I am–and the last few weeks have been a nightmare. The blood-pressure medication interacts negatively with the psychiatric, so I have to keep adjusting both kinds (with physician approval, of course). I’ve finally begun to lower the particular psych med that’s indirectly causing the high blood pressure, but I’ve got to do it very slowly (weeks or months). So pardon any writing that’s as dazed and confused as I (that’s one of my favorite songs in music history, by the way–especially the version from the film, in which Robert Plant suddenly goes into “San Francisco”, that is so weird and so cool)!
When I first read about “Twilight”, I looked in my stack of still-unopened DVDs, and saw that I had it. But I soon realized it wasn’t the one getting all the hype. The “Twilight” I had starred Newman, Sarandon, and Hackman, and was dated 1998.
I usually don’t follow hype. In fact, I tend to avoid whatever is popular at the moment–and the more hype it gets, the more repelled I am. But once I discovered this 2008 “Twilight” was a vampire film, I was sold. So I called Barnes & Noble. It wasn’t available on DVD yet, but they gladly agreed to hold me a copy, once it was (this is why I patronize Barnes & Noble–their service is the best).
I bought it last week. I knew it wouldn’t measure-up to “Interview with the Vampire”–which I consider not only the best vampire film ever made, but one of the best films ever made. But I watched it with an open mind, and was quite pleased. In fact, I just bookmarked it twice (i.e. watched it in just two sittings)–which is very rare, for me.
It was beautiful. I didn’t even watch any of the special features, even the deleted scenes (which I usually do)–because I wanted to hold the final moment in memory. It was is that memorable.
As for the women, all have pretty faces (except the mom). But only one has a pretty body, as well–Rachelle Lafevre (“Victoria”). I go for voluptuous women–those with curves. And Rachelle Lafevre has curves! This is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen! I’m fixated on her, I’ve looked at her photos almost every time I’ve been online lately! (No, I’m not an “obsessed fan”–just a lonely guy with an unusually strong passion for feminine beauty!)
So that’s my spiel on “Twilight”. Though not nearly as much as the aforementioned actress, it is captivating.
