Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Kristen Stewart!

11.05.2012

Welcome to Movie Jail, a facility like any other, only its inmates are Hollywood writers, directors, actors and producers. This column will serve as a Movie Jail trial. We will put one defendant on trial; lay out arguments for the Prosecution and Defense. And we leave it up to YOU, the reader, to decide whether the defendant is guilty of his or her crime. What crime? The crime of consistently being a stinking shithouse.

The Defendant


Kristen Stewart

The Case

Note: We are going to try something a little different this week. 1) We're finally putting an actress on trial and B) Since the case is already so strong against this defendant around the internet and the JoBlo.com world, this week, only the Defense will attempt to sway the jury into acquitting the defendant.

The Defense:

Ladies and Gentleman of the jury, the defense understands that we're facing an uphill battle by representing Ms. Stewart. But what is this court if we can just blindly throw an actor/actress in Movie Jail without due process? Anarchy, is what it is (remember, remember the 5th of November). We feel that Ms. Stewart is being charged as guilty for nothing more than being associated with a very successful and uber popular series: The Twilight Saga. Twihards gonna Twi...hard, and the natural response to any big kind of pop culture "event" such as boy bands, TV shows, and film/book series, is to immediately hate everything and everyone associated with it. See: The Twilight Saga. See: Justin Bieber and the Beliebers. See: 50 Shades of Grey. Had another actress other than KStew been cast in the role of Bella Swan, they'd receive the same kind of backlash Ms. Stewart has.


Aside from her turn in the The Twilight Saga, where she's only obligated to stare blankly and bite her lip, the defense feels that some of KStew's other work isn't so ungodly horrible to garner a Movie Jail sentence. She was decent in Into the Wild and Jumper, and her films as a kid in Panic Room and Zathura showed promise. Granted they're not major starring roles for the California born actress, but she's still young and has her whole future ahead of her.

We even liked her in Adventureland and enjoyed her take on Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman, which at the end of the day, was a good little movie that wasn't at all encumbered by her performance. Let's not forget, KStew is only 22 and could very well develop into a solid A list actress, depending on the roles she takes from now on. Is the court not willing to be fair and see how her career plays out? Also, we liked that part when she kicked Edward to the curb in real life. We forgot his name.


IN CLOSING...

So, whatís to be done with Ms. Kristen Stewart? Is her turn as Bella Swan really enough to throw her in Movie Jail? Or is she just awful in general? Are you willing to wait and see the path she takes in her career before deciding? And the most important question to be asked, once all evidence is taken into consideration, we ask you The Jury, is Kristin Stewart GUILTY or NOT GUILTY? Letís hear YOUR arguments, either side, by STRIKING BACK BELOW.

*The court recognizes that all movies are subjective, so relax.

WHAT SAY YOU, GUILTY OR NOT?


LAST WEEK'S VERDICT

It is the jury's decision that after reviewing last week's evidence, the court finds Robert Rodriguez NOT GUILTY of all charges. By almost a 2 to 1 margin, the jury concluded that the prosecution was out of its mind by throwing El Chingon himself on the stand in the first place. But then again, the intensity of the jury members who fought for his acquittal, was equally matched by the jury members who wanted him guilty. Examples: "Are you fucking kidding me? So not guilty!" and "Fuck this fucking guy, SO GUILTY!".

People should not be rewarded (being highest paid actress in Hollywood) for mediocre skills. It gives the people in charge the wrong idea that she's actually bankable - thus creating more, higher budget mediocrity.

GUILTY.

Watched Snow White two nights ago, it wasn't bad but if there was anything good about it, it mostly had to do with Charlize Theron and Thor. Stewart was boring. I liked Adventureland but again, that had more to do with Jesse Eisenberg being good than anything Kristen Stewart brought to the table... that role could have gone to any other of a number of actresses and been just as good a movie... maybe even better. She is pitifully boring and bland. Bleh.

Not guilty by way of mistrial. This is too early in her career and she's too irrelevant for this to even be going on. Sandra Bullock would have made sense at least. Kstew has yet to be good enough to actually go bad.

Come on, she's just a kid, only 22. Too early to throw her in movie jail. I say you give her probation and put her in movie house arrest, in an all girl boarding school with skimpy uniforms and nightly pillow fights. And a few roles that demand a little more from her. I think she is pretty good looking, and has a lot of potential. She should be sentenced to a film with a top notch director and a quality script. If she fails then I can see movie jail.

Interesting article. I'm a bit biased (her role in The Runaways was one of my favourites of recent years), but I can't fault her on a professional level for her involvement in Twilight. My argument regarding her performance in that series is "Who isn't wooden in it?" I don't think that she's a wonderful actress set to rival the titans, but she's clearly got skill. Watch a real B- or C movie and tell me that the actors in just about any of those are better than K-Stew. Her choices in movies are

You don't present the case because you don't really have one... Twilight is awful but many people love it (ok, preteens and their moms...), she isn't really terrible in any movie and she is too young to deserve jail time besides I don't think this column serves to punish actors we simply don't like for whatever reason based on their personal life.

The only reason she is on here is because of twilight & i do agree she has a long career ahead of her. Sure the Twilight movies are not the best movies but ya can't blame her for doing them. Some of her other films have been quite good Panic Room, The Runaways, Adventureland. This one just seems forced & when ya had a chance to put an actress up in this silly article, Kristen Stewart is whom ya choose? It could have been Demi Moore or Julia Roberts or Meg Ryan, hell even Sandra Bullock.

Yes, it's a lot of fun to ridicule Kristen Stewart and yes, a lot of it can be chalked up to the Twilight films - but I really don't think she's a good actress. She may have been alright earlier in her career in films like Panic Room, but she just can't carry leading lady responsibilities. Snow White and the Huntsman was a good film, but I think she really dragged it down, and it could have been so much better if our heroic princess actually had a shred of charisma in her and could muster

There are many, many other young actresses in Hollywood who deserve the opportunities she's been getting far more than her.

It could go either way for me really, but I'll give her a chance since Twilight is ending and she can focus on other roles. Kinda like how I'm giving Shia LaBouf a chance now that Transformers is over. Actually, Shia would be an interesting choice for next week.

Everything she's been in outside of the Twilight series (especially Adventureland) has been awesome. I think the end of this franchise is the best thing that can happen for her career and soon enough she'll land the right role to be taken seriously as a leading lady.

First of all, I personally believe anyone put up against movie jail should be innocent until proven guilty by the people. Just my opinion.

Now why is Kristen Stewart not guilty. Its really simple. Fans love some people and hate some others, myself included. I personally have an issue with Luke Wilson. Not a big fan. Don't think he is or has ever been funny or entertaining. It happens. Tastes and things clash; but I certainly don't dislike him because its the cool thing to hate. Sometimes

Don't think he is or has ever been funny or entertaining. It happens. Tastes and things clash; but I certainly don't dislike him because its the cool thing to hate. Sometimes things just don't mix. What I don't do is label him or anyone else as an terrible actor or actress based on a series of films which clearly are not made for people like me specifically. Twilight has its place, be it shitty or not. Some people love that shit. Some people hate it. Stewart finds herself in a position in Hollywood of being most recognized by that series. The massive struggle she has in front of her is when people who dislike her see her "other work", they don't see Kirsten Stewart, they see the fucking chick from Twilight.

Think about how hard that is going to be for her down the line when the offers aren't flying in left and right. Separate the two and take into account the holy shit amount of exposure and money she made off of that series and the head on chances she will have after the final film is said and done later this month to do other things. Someone such as Emma Watson is in the same position as Stewart and I'm sure she gets some shit from some people, but the overall masses aren't unfair to her like they are with Stewart. She is the face of a series people really dislike. It's the label that comes with the perks I already mentioned. She can't convince the people who don't want to look past twilight. There are other people on the opposite side of the spectrum who will love anything she puts out whether it is good or bad. This whole thing is just a matter of taste and opinion.

The uphill battle that is Kirsten Stewart's defense is not strong enough to change the ideas of people who have made up their minds to dislike someone based on a series they don't like. Making someone guilty until proven innocent isn't fair in this argument and it certainly doesn't mean she should be thrown in movie jail because some people just want to see the fucking chick from Twilight and not Kristen Stewart. Remember how Anne Hathaway started her career? Does anyone want to throw her in movie jail next?

I think in this case the persecution has done such a brilliant job of pre-judging her on four movies where she happens to be playing the same person. No, really, I mean the SAME PERSON.

Now I'm not gonna say KStew is the next Audrey Hepburn, but I had been a fan of hers prior to Twilight on the grounds of her indie work, and that she seemed to be eschewing celebrity.

But then Twilight HAPPENED. I'd never even heard of the books. But it was such an event that anyone and everyone involved

While I'm not the biggest fan of her, I think it's a bit unfair to put her on trial. She's not really a celebrity like say John Travolta or Eddie Murphy, who had immense talent at one point and has been constantly pissing it away. She's just a bit middle of the road for this...

If Twilight had been what I'd known her for, I'd probably not think much of her... But my first memory of her was in Panic Room, and I was pretty impressed with her performance at that age. From there, she's had some good and some bad. I liked her Adventureland and In The Land Of Women, but they didn't require much from her. At the same time, I thought Cold Creek Manor and The Messengers were pretty bad, and her performances were bland... I think it's really when you look at her when she's

At the same time, I thought Cold Creek Manor and The Messengers were pretty bad, and her performances were bland... I think it's really when you look at her when she's good that you see just how much potential she really has. Into The Wild, What Just Happened, The Runaways, On The Road, and Welcome to the Rileys really allowed her to show off the fact that she's not entirely emotionless, that she does actually have some range, and that she's not afraid to take some risks. I think she's a little too young to condemn to movie jail... Especially since most of those who are so quick to do so are doing so based on a single film series. I'd like to think that people can take the good with the bad... no matter how bad that may be. It'd be like judging Uma Thurman for Batman and Robin, or Natalie Portman for Star Wars... I'm not saying she's anywhere near their talent or career... but she's got the potential to put Twilight behind her, and maybe be remembered for something worthwhile... Hey! Just remember there was a time when we all though Leo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt were just talent-less prettyboys... Food for thought.

Ehh, hard to get fired up over this one but I'd like to color my two cents green, if I may, for the simple fact that Stewart is more than capable of putting forth a solid performance and has at least a couple times even if, yeah, for the most part she's pretty bland. She does have a uniqueness and naturalism to her, though, and that's not to be discredited. I say let her be free to either improve in years to come or... well, go the other way and more rightfully wind up in this column.

I say let her be free to either improve in years to come or... well, go the other way and more rightfully wind up in this column.

I just don't care about her. I have no interest in seeing the Twilight movies. While Snow White and the Huntsman was a decent movie, it made more news because she couldn't keep her tongue out of the director's mouth. She's irrelevant as far as decent movies are concerned.

Weak. It's almost pathetic how many times the 'mature' people on Joblo need to bash Kristen Stewart and/or Twilight. I agree with DarkElfa this column should be about veteran movie makers who went from good to not so good and have careers that are older than Kstew.

Guilty! Lock her up and throw away the key.

She's awful. If the director doesn't use her, she's such a lazy actress. The only good movie she ever did was PANIC ROOM but she was under the trained eye of Fincher then. Terrible in TWILIGHT, awful in SNOW WHITE and didn't find her that good in her smaller roles like RUNAWAYS and WELCOME TO THE RILEY'S.

What pains me the most is despite her awfulness as an actress, she's one of the highest paid.

Not guilty.

She's just a bland actress. I only approve of convicting people who are painfully bad. She's never painfully bad. She's just . . . there. So I say not guilty.

She is forgettable, emotionless and bland in almost everything I see of her. I'm checking her filmography on IMDB right now and I couldn't even remember she was in movies like Zathura, Into The Wild, Jumper, Adventureland. She doesn't deserve the spotlight and we just can't seem to get rid of her. Damn those Twilight movies...

Probation

First, the choice of Ms. Stewart, as she only has a few big movies seems odd. Also, she's in 'Jumper', for what? A whole 30 seconds? That should not be used one way or the other for her. Also, she was unbelievable awful in one of the worst films of the year so far, SWATH. However, she was good in both 'Panic Room' & 'Zathura', and if reviews for 'On The Road' are right, she's good there as well. But she does suck hard in all the 'Twilight' films, 'The Runaways', and 'Welcome To The Rileys'. She

Unworthy of the courts' time

Furthermore, I find Johny in contempt for this lousy court case when he already knows everyone will find her guilty. It's not like it's debatable or anything. :)

Not Guilty

She doesn't deserve all of the hate. She isn't great, but as mentioned, she is still young and could potentially do some good stuff.
Julianne Hough on the other hand should be locked up for life.

Sentenced to death

And she's not hot. And grown men shouldn't say "I liked Snow White." Get some balls.

Out of all the actresses you guys choose her? I mean her big movies you can hate on, but her indie flicks outweigh those projects honestly and she's still young to get out of the Twlight phase. The only one that's screwed is Taylor Lautner. Not guilty

Saying not guilty. I have no particular like or dislike for her, but she's done enough work in which her acting was decent to good that the few projects she's done in which she's not good are on the lesser end. I don't fault her for Twilight. It's a crap franchise in which nearly every aspect of it is poorly done. If we're going to throw other actors under the bus for Twilight, we'd have to do the same to the likes of Dakota Fanning and Anna Kendrick.

Agreed she's not a great actress, but I don't find her terrible either. She was decent in On the Road, The Runaways and Adventureland; Snow White looks ok too (haven't seen it yet).

Is this a joke? The only case against her is Twilight, which is hardly all her fault. Pretty much everything else she's done backs up the defense. Zathura, Panic Room, Into the Wild, Adventureland, The Runaways, Welcome to the Rileys, On the Road etc.. NOT GUILTY in any way shape or form. Except of being hot.

Guilty (but umm...)

Twilight was as badly directed as it was acted, it's not her fault that her character is dull and emotionless, but still, it doesnt help her case. So lets talk untwilight related projects.

I went back and looked at her career. Panic Room, Zathura, The Runaways. She was pretty good in all of them. And now that i'm looking, "On the Road" and "Welcome to the Rileys" both look interesting to say the least. However, her most popular staring film was Adventureland and that was a terrible movie.

(the court recognizes that i have not seen "Snow White" nor do i intend to in the future). So does one franchise and a terrible comedy stand ground for a guilty verdict.

In short, yes. She is guilty of being too big of a star. She is an ok actress but does not deserve A-list status. After the Twilight films wrap up, she should be condemned to a few more years of low budget independent films until she proves otherwise.

I'll leave it to you Mr. Moreno to decide if my plea is one for guilty or not guilty. I dont really know for sure myself. This article as made me question everything i thought about this actress. Before i was in the boat with everyone ready to damn her. But now i feel she is the product of a talent sucking series and i almost feel bad for her.

Guity

Let me explain real quick. I haven't seen anything she's been in.
That's not by choice or anything I just haven't seen any of her films.
The reason I'm saying guilty is because I have seen clips from Twilight on TV on the internet and the likes and she looks so bored and bores me just watching her.
Maybe my opinion will change if I see more of her work but right now I'm saying Guilty.

Next week - Bruce Willis.
or Kevin Smith

The few things I have seen her in I thought she was fine to good. I always assumed the hate towards her were from being part of Twilight (which I have never seen so have no opinion about it) and her overall awkward public persona.

Absolutely. I think she needs to be scared straight. Her ability is there, just watch Cherry, just let her know that she needs to pick better roles and stop make that face.
