We’ve got two Friday feminist funny films today, both of which deal with Twilight. This is in honour of the release of the 3rd film, which my roommates remind me is coming out at the end of June.

To be right up front, I’m not a fan. I saw the first movie because my sister and I were on Hornby Island, it was raining, and let’s face it: there wasn’t much else to do. It wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever seen, but I’m gonna side with the makers of the following two films.

And in case you missed it, here’s a mash-up of Buffy vs. Edward:

And this has absolutely nothing to do with the FFFF theme, but I’m ridiculously over-excited about going to see The Manhattan Transfer tomorrow with my Dad – their first time in Vancouver in many many years. So for those many, many of you who aren’t 24-year-olds who like super cheezy vocal jazz, here is an example of their trademark 80s awesomeness. If they don’t do coordinated finger-snapping on Saturday, I will be highly disappointed.
