Our top ten favorite moments in Twilight, the movie

Dear LTT/LTR-ers and Twihards, lovers and haters of this site,

Today is another big day in the life of us here at LTT. Yes, you might have guessed it but today marks our TEN MONTH anniversary. Now not to get all high school relationship on you but we think blogging solid for ten months is a big deal. Countless hours, love, conversations, text messages, good ideas, really bad ideas (trust me, there are tons), blood sweat and tears have gone into these ten months so UC and I want to celebrate this week. In honor of our ten month anniversary we are going to be bringing you a new top ten list every day this week to celebrate and look towards the next ten!

So to kick off our top tens I’m gonna start us off with Top Ten Favorite Twilight Movie Moments! All the little things, the good and the sometimes cheesy things that we loved and couldn’t imagine living without. All the moments that we wanted to see make it in, the ones we didn’t know and the ones that made us fall in love with the story all over again… here they are

10. The Cullen’s enter the Cafeteria

The set up for the whole movie: who are those kids and why are they different and most importantly WHO IS THAT BOY? Why yes, it’s only the hottest boy to ever grace the United States public school system, that’s who. And he just happens to be a Vampire. Ok wait, she’ll learn that later… let’s not get ahead of ourselves now!

09. Animal Attack

Oh Carlisle you kill us with the delivery of that line coupled with the totally obvious stare down you give Edward. Yup, it was totally an animal that killed Buttcrack Santa and not some crazy psycho nomadic vampire that’s going to develop some weirdo fascination with Bella and stop at nothing to kill her. Yup, totes an animal.

Wanna find out what else made our top ten list of favorite Twilight Movie Moments? Follow the cut…

08. Edward Introduces Himself

Cause who else would barge into Biology class to lay it on the line with their new lab partner only to be greeted by a guy who sounds like he’s the weirdo foreign exchange student. Yea, Bella don’t worry about why he’s avoiding class, he’s just hoping the INS doesn’t deport him for his expired visa, not because you smell or are the crazy new girl.

07. Carlisle’s Entrance

In he walks, all confidence and smiles and bad white pancake makeup. Doesn’t matter though cause everytime that door swings open and Carlisle walks in, I inevitably hear: “Doctor Doctor, gimme the news, I gotta bad case of lovin’ you!” playing in my head. Oh Dr. Cullen, if lovin’ you is wrong we don’t want to be right.

06. “I have a date with Edward Cullen” / Charlie and the gun

Who wouldn’t want to utter those magic words: “I have a date with Edward Cullen?” Yea, we know he’s fictional but still. This moment is also classic Charlie and classic Dad! Isn’t it every Dad’s wildest dream to be cleaning a rifle, drinking beer (Vitamin R, holla!) when his daughter’s hot piece shows up to take her out on a date? Yup, pretty much! And Billy Burke nails it!

05. Bella Meets the Family

Another one of those scenes that is so spot-on from start to finish. From Emmett greeting Bella by waving the knife to Carlisle looking so excited to have a human in their house and performing something as normal as cooking for her. I’d have to say my favorite part is Edward’s reactions and total embarrassment in front of his family, I think we’ve all been there when introducing a significant other to our family and being totally and utterly embarrassed by them. The only thing that’s missing from this scene is when Carlisle says “Oh Rosalie, always busting my bowls” which apparently was left on the cutting room floor. What a shame!

04. Buttcrack Santa

Buttcrack Santa should probably be number one on our list based on just how much we talk about him, but at 5 he will stay.  What else can be said about this non-canon character that we haven’t already talked about in length? He’s the character upon which we learn how to make a kitty meow, upon which we learn that they love those little bottles and upon which this blog is built. We’re only sad he had to die because who else will we talk about in all the other movies? Hopefully Tequila Tomas makes it into the final cut.

03. Jasper and the bat / “Oh I think we can handle that”

Really, do we even need to say anything about this scene that hasn’t already been talked about in my post about Jackson and the bat and his delivery of that line in the sexy southern drawl? Nope, other than HOT DAAAYYYUUMM can they give Jasper a bat to uh, play with, in the background of New Moon?

02. The Kiss

He just wants to try one thing… hold very still. And with those words I don’t think any woman, in movie theaters around the world, moved a muscle.

01. Bella Italia – Port Angeles

From start to finish this sequence is pretty much everything it should be: swoon worthy/magnificent/delectable and heart breaking all at the same time. Right off the bat Anna and Christian nail the giggly high school girliness of Jessica and Angela being dazzled by Edward. Then we move to Bella and Edward’s revealing, funny, frustrating and somewhat sad conversation. Kristen and Rob kill this so hardcore, you can see pain and 2nd guessing going on in Edward as he finally decides to let go and let Bella in. And then these lines: “I don’t have the strength to stay away from you anymore… Then don’t” AH! I die. Everytime. And all to Rob singing “Never Think.” Perfection.

So there we have it, our first top ten for our ten month anniversary outta the way. What do you think? What were your favorite moments in the movie version of Twilight?

Still holding still,

  1. So timely, ladies, so timely! I just today went to Target and bought the 3 disc set after reading about it on here for so long. So what if this is the only movie I have two copies of, I can wear out the first one now!

    You got all of my faves on this list, I would add only that scene where he backs her into that rock with his arms, so hot! Plus, for non-bella/edward action..

    • Sorry, keyboard epic fail…the rest of that post was to say that anytime charlie and billy black were together, it was great. Those two have great comedic timing.

  2. Congrats on 10 months! And THANK YOU both for keeping us so entertained. I love your top 10 picks. I might would add the final scene dancing in the gazebo. Edward is hot (duh), and the whole scene is so overwhelmingly romantic. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE when we meet the Cullens in the cafeteria for the first time. My heart flutters everytime I see Edward walk in the door!

  3. I just rewatched the movie this weekend, so it’s fresh in my head. I took a 2 week break btwn viewings because it didn’t have that fresh feeling anymore (that’s normal? that’s what she said? ew?)

    Anywhoodiddleydoo – you left out the prom scene where they are dancing in the gazebo. I love that part – it’s sweet, romantic and foreshadows the goodness to come.

    Happy Anniversary ladies. Can’t wait for another 10 months of spit shit through my nose while trying to act like I’m not laughing at work goodness! ❤ u both.

  4. Buttcrack Santa made the list! This makes me very happy 🙂

    for me, I adore the “meet the cullens” scene when Emmett waves with the knife/ all of rob’s well acted awkwardness. Also the cafeteria scene (I gasped so loud when Robward entered, my boyfriend had to shrink down in his seat) and the raybans, god the raybans. And the only other scenes i would add are Anna kendrick’s (she steals every scene she’s in) and the end gazebo scene. Swoon.

  5. Happy Anniversary gals.

    Am I the only one that liked the spider monkey (the comment NOT the awkward tree climbing that followed)?

    All the great stuff has already been listed but some of my fave moments are…

    “I could always make you”.
    “You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you”.
    The piano scene.
    The kiss…. of course…. first one and final scene.
    “Your moodswings are giving me whiplash”.
    “Not the moats”.
    “Oh. My. God.”
    Him jumping on the roof of her truck.
    The restaurant scene to Rob’s beautiful song.
    And him staring at her while Mike asked her to prom. Drool!

    Glorious stuff!

    So jealous that you guys can get the 3 disc set in the US. We can’t. 😦

  6. awesome! I’m totally agree with #2 & #1.

  7. Really nice film though i did not read the book (shame on me). i liked the film because it was an unusual story of love. vampires were not shown as cruel and cold. they were shown as creatures who can feel and love, who can walk during daytime. it was the first film about vampires actully where i did not find a lot of blood, slayers and murders!

  8. Happy Anniversary ladies!! Your website/blog has been the highlight of most of my days!! Even my husband thinks that you are funny!!
    I just read thru most of the comments, and couldn’t help myself, to give two of my favorites that I don’t think were mentioned already. Most of them involve Rob being in them, of course.
    – Edward leaning against his car, the morning that he offers her a ride to school. So hot!!
    -Their arrival at school, when he opens the door for Bella. She notices everyone looking at them. His response is brilliant. “Not that guy. He just looked.” His smile is intoxicating…
    -Billy Burke scenes are also fantastic. Charlie circles his head to form a “halo”, when Bella asks him to be nice to Edward. So brilliant!!
    Two scenes that took my breathe away, but were mentioned already.
    -Edward playing the piano for Bella. Even KStew’s facial expressions were good, mouth hanging open. She probably thought, “Michael who?” Priceless..
    -The kissing scene. I remember holding my breathe, and looking at my husband, and not realizing that I was talking out loud, whispered. OMG.

    You guys are the best!!

    xxoo

  9. I suggest watching your favorite Edward scenes frame by frame or in slo-mo on your DVD. It’s marvelous. When he gets her out of the car that first day he drives her, the smile on his face flashes so fast….but if you watch it in slo-mo, it’s totally awesome.

  10. Edward didn’t like the music of the 60s and 70s because it was all about Sex and Drugs ….. you can’t understand what you ain’t gettin.

  11. “He just wants to try one thing..hold very still, and with those words, I don’t think any woman on movie theaters around the world, moved a muscle!”

    Holy crap, you definitely got that one right!

    UC and MOon you guys crack me up. This list was brilliant and congrats on your 9 month anniversary.

    Epic line: Mike: You’re aliiiiivee!

  12. I know I’m a little late with my comment, but need to say it 🙂 “out load” :))))
    I loved the end – when Edward kisses Bell’s neck.. I hadn’t read the book before I watch the movie, so I didin’t know what would happen.. and it was strong

  13. Oh this was freakin’ hilarious! Totally agree with every one of your choices. Especially the comment about Carlisle. I just had surgary yesterday and it hurt so bad to laugh, but I couldn’t help it! This is my first visit to your blog and you already have me in hysterics. You guys are a blast!

  14. oooh… that scene almost makes me Team Jasper. Soooo hot.
