I learned that Dakota Fanning has gotten freakishly tall.

Seriously, in "Push" she was normal height for her age, and now at 16 she's taller than Kristen Stewart, who's 4 years older and the gal who plays Alice, who's in her mid 20s. Heck, she's taller than Joan Jett, who's probably 175 by now. She's going to become a freakish giant of a woman who will swallow entire cities whole! Run! Run and flee!

I learned obsessively stalking and wanting to commit suicide over another person is in fact true love.

I also learned that I won't turn gay if I stare at shirtless guys for 90 minutes.

I learned that somehow Miss "Adrenalin Rush" can still possess  the most expressionless face in movie history.  I swear I even think her eyes look crossed when she's looking down and having an "introspective" moment.    
And I'm worse than Hitler.

I've learned that Kristen Stewart can blink and stammer and pause her way through two entire movies, and no one will be concerned enough to have her tested for a neurological disorder.

Oh, I also learned that when 7 ageless vampires pretend to be teenagers, and 2 more pretend to be their middle aged parents, people will notice the age discrepancy in the parents first.  After only 1 year.

I think Kristen Stewart can act. It's just the amateurish material of these movies that's caused her to forget basic human brain activities. From what I've seen of the Runaways movie she nails Joan Jett.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

Kristen Stewart ... nails Joan Jett.

If THAT is in the movie, I'm watching it!

I remember her from Panic Room - I'm still not convinced.

IKristen Stewart is still young. I'm not going to judge her acting abilities just based on the anti-hype surrounding the Twilight movies. I just don't think she  has found the right creative team and project yet.

I've learned that even in supremely crappy movies Dakota Fanning shines like a burning diamond. That girl is going places.

I learned that Edward without his shirt looks like Tim from Boggy Creek II finally did a few pushups, and it didn't really help.

That's weird, I only remember her pretending trying to kill somebody with her mind by staring intently. She is about as memorable as the rest of the movie to me.

She's a very talented actress; I have no doubt about that. Seeing her being dedicated enough to the role to not sleepwalk through it shows, to me, a level of maturity and professional behavior that makes me respect her all the more.

Basically, actually caring about not sucking in Twilight just makes me say "Brava, Dakota, Brava."

But that's just one fangirlish opinion.  ;D
