Since UC and I have been so busy with work and the holidays we can’t seem to find 10 minutes together to break down that blasted Water for Elephants trailer that came out LAST WEEK. Sure, we’ve emailed back n forth little one liners with our thoughts though that wouldn’t do it justice. BUUUTTT I do have one thing to say about the trailer and I’d like to direct it towards the film makers…
Dear Water for Elephants Film makers,
THANK YOU. Why you ask? I haven’t even seen the movie yet, it could be total crap, that circus music was creepy, we didn’t even make it mysterious or make the public wonder why the should see this film, so why are you thanking us you’re asking. I know. I know. But I still have to say thank you for one reason…
Thank you for making Robert Pattinson look like a MAN.
Clearly, we love ourselves some Edward and we appreciate that he’s pulled off playing a teenager. And sure we love some angsty college boys who are mad at the world, pick fights with their dad and ride a 10 speed through the rain to blow off steam. And who doesn’t love any Brit kid who ends up in Harry Potter. And of course… Daniel Gale.
But for the first time I can clearly say, wow this is a man and all this time can be sort of justified. Ok, ok that’s taking it a bit far but maybe this movie will be a turning point for our dear Rob. God knows this needs to be a success for him so he can prove he can open a movie outside the teen vampire genre. Fingers crossed for him. It’s funny to be writing this while Pirate Radio plays in the background and seeing Tom Stu in a role that apparently he found on Rob’s floor and wondering what could have been if Rob had taken something like this. A smaller role where he’s not the sole lead in a smaller project with some huge names in Britian’s film scene (AND Philip Seymour Hoffman!!!). Who knows… maybe we’ll see something like this from Rob in the future but until then I’m excited for April and hope this is a great film for Rob.
In the meantime, another big thank you!
So anyone else… did you feel this way? Like finally we’re out of the teen category, Rob can be a MAN in movies?
