A Better Prom Dress?
- Current Mood: bouncy
I know you are thinking, what, the tubby guy from Tenacious D and those movies I like? Are you kidding me? But hear me out. The clincher was the scene where Miles, a musician, is at the piano, playing a song for Iris (Kate Winslet) that he composed for a mutual friend of theirs. But it turns out he wrote a song to describe Iris as well, and he starts playing that. And what do you know? It is beautiful and humble and richly crafted and all the things we have come to learn about Iris; in short, it is ten times better than the crappy song that Edward spits out for Bella in the “Twilight” movie. In the fight of cute-guy-who-wrote-me-a-song, Miles wins hands down.
And on second thought, Miles and Iris both make a better couple than Edward and Bella. Miles and Iris are the anti-Edward/Bella; a normal, healthy, fun relationship that you can care about and root for without feeling like you are endorsing something wrong and unrealistic. Jasper, Iris’ cold, debonair, out-of-her-reach ex-flame, is actually the most Edward-ish of all the men in “The Holiday.” And he constantly breaks her heart, makes her doubt herself, puts her in an unhealthy emotional state, is bad for her but she can’t see it. Sound like a familiar Twilight couple we all love to criticize? People should be modeling their idea of a perfect relationship on more realistic—and real—relationships than a starry-crossed, moony-eyed tweener versions of twu wuv. But alas, I think girls will be pointing to Edward as the perfect boyfriend for years to come. Gag.
In short, Miles is a better Edward in every way, from the shallow things like his piano playing and song composing to the deeper things like being a healthy, romantic, functioning leading male.
(Confession time, to get my bias out of the way: I’m more attracted to guys like Jack Black in the long run than Robert anyway, initial attraction factor notwithstanding. Yeah, don’t get me wrong, Robert’s pretty and shiny and sparkly and all (and that’s even before they dress him up to play Edward), thus a catch, but who would be more fun to go on a date with? Who is warm and open and makes you laugh and would put you at ease and make you feel special? I’m a bit of an introvert myself, and I have learned from time (and a lot of bad dates) that I prefer guys that help pull me out of my shell and disarm my nervousness; someone I can develop a rapport with. In short, I prefer the guys like Miles over the Edwards of the world. (Now I just have to find the right one, hah.) But in spite of that bias, I hope I’ve outlined why Miles makes a better Edward satisfactorily.)
Would Miles Make a Better Edward?
Would a Miles/Iris relationship make a better Edward/Bella relationship?

These pictures are mostly from his old movies and such, so he's kind of not the same now. After seeing all those billboards with Pattinson's face in them, I needed another face to have in my mind while I read the books. If I didn't have any visual aid, I might have never finished the book (movie ads before reading the books just messed up with my personal image of most of the characters.. Jacob was especially ruined).

This is the best comment I've read so far:
Meanwhile, Emmett's all like, "Dude, Rosalie is totally going to put a foot up your ass, and also, Jasper's pretty much gonna take that chick out back and snarf her if you won't," and Edward literally sees red and goes into a rage spasm and Emmett's like DUDE WE ARE IN SPANISH CLASS YOU HAVE GOT TO GET YOUR MIERDA TOGETHER. "Damn, kid, you're a mess," laughs Emmett. "Bite me," says Edward. Presumably there are no ladies within earshot of this horrid, pun-laden vulgarity.
The best part is the 100% correct use of the word "mierda" in both Spanish and English.
Does Cleolinda make a better Stephenie?
It seems all to appropriate to post it here, so I hope you all enjoy. I can't get over the characterizations-- a better Edward-- YOU BETCHA!
