Fugs and Fabs: Dudes at the Breaking Dawn, Part 2 Premiere


Let’s discuss a few things: 1) Not EVERY series finale novel needs to be split in half for the movie, because 2) not every series finale novel is as substantial as Deathly Hallows was, and thus 3) it’s so unlikely this movie will be any good, because did you READ the last half of that book? Much less the FIRST HALF? OY, and 4) I have the same issues with rumors that Mockingjay — a.k.a. the third Hunger Games book — will also be split in half. The last third of that one feels like she wrote it in three days under tight deadline. (And possibly under the influence of Theraflu.) Can we please stop this trend?

Okay. Thank you. I needed to get that off my chest. Now let’s relax with some men in suits.

    “Peeping Tom stuck in a hedge.” LMAO. I thought he looked great, and I liked how he seemed to be such a good sport with the fawning Twihards. Although he does seem determined not to look dorectly at Crazy Glasses Lady. Can’t blame him.

    Men, listen up – I get the “fitted suit” look, but we don’t have to look at your front pant pocket outlines in every shot. These suits have all been tailerd – it’s not too much to ask to have those pockets removed for a smoother line. Unless you are Jon Hamm, in which case, definitely remove it.

    Jackson Rathbone looks like Milo Ventitreintiwhateves with that smirk. Still cute, though.

    Gathegi looks GORGEUS. Lautner, very dapper. Pattinson needs to go up a size, though I love the fabric.

    And Rathbone absolutely needs to play Katie Holmes! Yes, yes, yes!

      And I don’t think it’s leather – I think it’s a shawl collar of a tux.

        The lapels look sorta leathery on my screen, but it’s hard to tell for sure without seeing it in person. Either way, gorgeous (see, I really can spell it). ;)

    NOTHING HAPPENED IN THE LATTER HALF OF THIS BOOK. They were all preparing for like this epic standoff and then… nothing. I mean. Lots of vampires standing around discussing their powers and flexing their muscles and hissing. Don’t even get me started on Jacob falling in love with an infant.

    Anyhoodle, the clothes. I think R. Pattz look supermegafoxyawesomehot. That suit is killer. Jacob’s looking sharp. i cherish Jackson’s smirk.

      Yeah, that book stunk – but I think (from previews), the finale has been changed quite a lot with more action than just Bella just doing her thing.

        I read somewhere that–POTENTIAL SPOILERS IF YOU CARE–they’re going to show the whole battle thing as a vision that the future-seeing one has (Alice? It’s Alice, I’m pretty sure), and then the gang finds a way to make sure that the vision she had doesn’t come to pass (ie, the absolute nothing of a standoff that happens in the book).

      Ugh, yes. I read this book in some sort of masochistic fit (I can’t just NOT read something so ingrained into pop culture), and if you promise an epic vampire battle at the end of your book, DELIVER ON AN EPIC VAMPIRE BATTLE. I do not really care to read a book about the diplomatic relations of vampires.

    Jackson Rathbone looks like a skinny Chaz Bono. If Chaz meets his weight-loss goals (reported by People!), I bet they could play twins.

    I like R.Pattz’s green suit. Interesting fabric…it almost has a dull-leather sheen to it. It does not appear to be not leather, but it is somewhat reflective like leather. Wonder what it could be? Anyone know?

    I can’t believe I’m taking the time to comment on this, but was Lee Pace not at the premiere? Because he’s pretty much the only reason why I might see this movie and why I clicked through on here. And now I’m a little sad.

          Definitely needs more Lee Pace. And Michael Sheen. And though she is not a dude: Anna Kendrick.

          Sheen and Kendrick are the reasons why I haven’t murdered my friend who has made me go see these at the movie theater. (This time Lee Pace is also a very valid reason.)

          Also I hate that I am charmed by Peter Facinelli’s small, elven face even though he made Kelly Taylor sad.

      Ha! I totally just scrolled through the comments to see if anyone else was wondering where Lee was. I suspect he was off doing press for ‘Lincoln’ and distancing himself from this little misadventure as much as possible.

    I’m impressed that (almost) all of them are wearing suits and are well-groomed. Amazing that not one of them attempted that rolled out of bed after a 3 day bender and then wore a wrinkled T under a mismatched blazer/skinny pants combo.

    I can never take Taylor Lautner seriously because he went to my high school and he was super full of himself. Good for him for getting paid, though. And where is Lee Pace? Did he not attend the premiere?

    You might also find Joe Anderson in “Becoming Jane” playing dashingly handsome Henry Austen. He was so hot, I sometimes didn’t register MacAvoy.

    Now, Goran, take another cue from Intern George and give up the hair dye.

    Jackson Rathbone was also saddled with the worst wig in the movie series, but turned out to be a blessing because …damn, that is one foxy dude. And he has the perfect villain name EVER. Someone needs to write a Jackson Rathbone character and he can play it.

    Or get thee to Game of Thrones young Jackson, where they can fit you with another wig but you can smirk all you want. GOT needs a bit more smirking.

    Totally agree about Mockingjay. It’s the worst of the Hunger Games trilogy; I get that the studio wants to make as much as it can off the franchise but seriously, that book was boring.

    I’d read that Pattinson wore a green suit to this and I was like “Green suit?” but he actually looks good. He’s also pretty well-groomed; looks like he has a fresh haircut and shave, which we know is not always the case with him.

    Can someone please explain to me why there are two (or more) buttons on a suit jacket when men only button one. It drives me crazy to see them unbuttoned in these photos. It can’t be that much more uncomfortable, so why is this a look?

    • glee

      Why does a strapless dress have a train?

      If you turn any suit’s collar up, it will be really apparent that it’s just a modified version of a military jacket. So the buttons are atavistic and could be replaced by magnets or velcro (gag), but persist as a reminder of their past.

      Also, sometimes it’s cold and it’s good to use all the buttons (under another coat, of course).

      You (if you are a man or a male-presenting person) are actually never supposed to do up the bottom button of a jacket or vest. It ruins the line, allegedly. It’s a thing, and has been since forever.

      According to this Art of Manliness page, it started because King Edward VII had a tum. http://artofmanliness.com/2010/04/02/art-of-manliness-suit-school-part-iii-a-primer-on-suit-buttons/

    Apparently the men all called each other and decided to go as Mattel versions of themselves. They all look plastic in their outfits due to the weird tight fit thing they have going on.

    The sign next to Billy Burke’s left leg saying “left my job, traveled miles, ONLY FOR YOU ROB” in red drippy glitter is giving me shivers. I think Mr. Pattinson’s suit is my favorite! It’s probably stiff because he’s got body armor underneath it in case a fan snaps and attacks him with love.

    I did not know Lee Pace was in these movies… I have not seen a frame of these nor read a word of the books, but I have harboured a secret crush on him since discovering “Pushing Daisies” last year. He is so adorable.

    Wow, Pattinson looks great! It appears that he actually showered and shaved in the past 48 hours, his hair looks really nice for a change, and that suit is glorious. Color me impressed, Cedric!

    Also, happy to see the boys brought a little color to the festivities; the ladies were mostly varying shades of bland.

    Zoom in on Pattinson’s suit to see that it is patterned fabric. I can’t tell if it’s just texture or different colors, but it is cool.

      He showed up in a few episodes of Criminal Minds, and other episodic crime dramas. He’s actually a very good actor, at least from those shows. And damn, he cleans up nicely. If I was a teenager, I’d have a picture of him on my wall for sure.

    I want to be Jackson Rathbone. What a face!

    Also, after reading the last Twilight book, I am furious that they decided to split that meandering nonsense into two movies. As if they tried to put themselves in the same league as Harry Potter and say “Our story needs two movies to be told.” No, it doesn’t. You’re not fooling anyone who read those books.

    Boys: Just because Daniel Craig wears the shit out of a skintight suit (and boy does he ever) does not mean that every man can rock that look. Your suit should be tailored, but not immodest. (NOTE: this advice does not apply to Hamm. You are perfect, Jon, never change.)

  33. tigerstripes

    RPatz doesn’t just look ‘stiff and uncomfortable’, he *is* stiff and uncomfortable. Any time he appears to be something else, that’s *acting*!

    That Lautner, wot an adorable puppy. The only man Taylor Swift has expressed any regret over. He reshaped himself to retain this role; he’s the Tom Cruise of his generation, only hopefully without the wacky neo-religion.

    I’ve read the books; I like Twilight. The first film was this perfect little indie gem; the rest I can’t vouch for, the concepts got blown up so big that it all looks ludicrous.

    Deathly Hallows wrapped up the most brilliant and entertaining book series of all time absolutely perfectly. Flawless. CLEARLY needed 2 movies to cover the intricacies as well as the movies have all along. Both Breaking Dawn and Mockingjay were disappointing at best. AT BEST! As if Harry and Voldemort would ever end things saying, Hey, let’s just agree to disagree. That book should have ended halfway through, and thus saved us all a second movie. I really have no time for these Twilight jokers. Who wants to see Kristen Stewart do press for yet another movie? BLAH!! And…how did Mockingjay end again? I skimmed it, because yes, I’m pretty sure she just typed some shit out fast in order to make her dinner reservation. HP remains untouched.

    Heather, the Mockinjay thing isn’t a rumor…they confirmed it! They’re splitting it in two movies, it’s fairly obvious they’re doing it t cash in the movies.

    R. Pattz seems to be “torso boy” to my “torso girl”. Buttons intended to hit me at the waist hit my ribcage. I feel he and I would have some long waisted, shorted limbed kids, but I’d be willing to give it a go. And yes, that makes me a bit of a pedophile.

    I guess I am just too old. Guys my age can move in their suits.

    It is way cool that the guys are wearing suits.

    BUT…almost all of them are tailored too tight.
    You aren’t supposed to see the fabric pulling when the jacket is buttoned – at the front or on the sleeves, and you aren’t supposed to see the outline of the pockets or the top of your boots.

    If you are going to spend a fortune on a great suit, have it tailored correctly.

    (Just like the gals going up a size or finding the right neckline/bodice for their bosoms.)

    Pattison’s is interesting, but not quite right, maybe too shiny and tight (you can totally see the outline of his pants pocket) for me. Edi, Taylor and Peter all look very nice. Billy Burke’s is okay, but too me, he always looks a little sloppy – hair messy, in need of shave, like he just rolled in from drinking all night, caught a quick nap, and then headed back out. Not suggesting he actually does that, just the impression i get

    “Fuzz Buckle” hee!

    What’s with “tailored” suits being so tailored that they can barely be buttoned? Either go up a size or take it easier with the tailoring. When the suit pulls across the middle section that much, it just makes it look like bad tailoring or too much lunch. Neither Rob nor Taylor is what anyone would call fat, but the suits are just too tight-IMHO.

    • heather

      I agree with you. They’re taking the early 60s suit styling to an extreme. You want to see a man in that era who rocks a tailored suit? Rod Serling. His were never that tight. Fitted, but not to a point where you were hyper-aware of lines. Here, the suits are often wearing the guys and not in a kind way.

      • Tessa

        Agreed, those suits are just way too tailored. If it starts to resemble a sausage casing or an overly stuffed sofa cushion, it’s time to stop and go back a step.

    I love the idea of it but would like Robert Pattinson’s suit if it didn’t have that wax finish.
    And Edi Gathegi looks like the mini Tom Hanks at the end of big when he shrinks but is still wearing Big’s suit.
