Screen Chemistry

Discussion about the Twilight movie. It's all speculation until Summit Films actually produces a script and casts it.

good chemistry :D
1. orlando and kiera-potc
2. viggo and liv- lord of the rings
2. orlando and kirsten- elizabeth town
3. meg and matthew- addicted to love

bad chemistry :shock:
1.daniel and whatsherface- hp 5
2.viggo and whoever that girl is-hidalgo

judging from his work, robert pattison is the kind of actor who can form chemistry with just about any-one. he totally and completely in every way shape and form fits my mental-image of Edward. I think it'll be kind of hot, having a brittish edward.... 8)
now, i was imagining bella being a bit more delicate than kristen stewart but she is a very talented actress and im sure she'll be able to tone down her intensity to a more bella- like level. :? anyone but emily browning :roll:

The chemistry between actors in movie is extremely important. Especially with a romance like Twilight. I think good chemistry involves the acting abilities of the actors as well as good writing of the script. Two actors could seem to be completely in love, but have unrealistic lines to each other. It's definetley all about making the auduence believe it's real, which is in the end the goal of any movie, right? I think Twilight has the potential to be amazing but good chemistry is key, and I'll trust the people in charge who say robert and kristen have it, until I can decide for myself.

On screen chemistry is also dependent on lighting and music and sometimes even makeup. My favorite piece of on-screen chemistry is the Pride and Prejudice with Kera Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen during the scene at Netherfield then Mr. Darcy lifts Elizabeth up in to the carriage and then it cuts to Mr. Darcy's hand scretching out like he's trying to dry it from being clammy with nervousness. But then that chemistry get's ruined in the raining scene when Mr. Darcy is trying to proclaim his love and their body language is amazing and they get closer and closer to each other if to kiss because there is an underling sexual tension/attraction, but I loose that excitement as soon as I see this monstrous nose of Mr. Darcy's that hasn't been there before and all I can think of is don't kiss him Elizabeth you won't be able to make it to his lips because you are going to bonk right into his honker. See Make-up and Lighting are amazing techniques to hide some flaws that would otherwise not create movie magic.

What are some successful on screen duos?
Ariel and Prince Eric
Belle and the Beast
Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable
Mad about You's Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser
Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles in 10 things I Hate about You.


Are there some examples of bad on screen chemistry out there?
Can I just say Clark Kent and Lana Lane in Smallville YUCK!
or how about Tobey McGuire and Kristen Dunst in SpiderMan--- snore. You can actually see it in their eyes that they are acting and not even having a good time with it. Roswell got that way in the second and third season, bad scripts, boring plots and suddenly the actors are no longer passionate about their work. (It think this happend to Keira in Pirates 3, she practically oozed boredom and disgust about playing her role and it showed in the final cut)

When Movies or Television shows remove the sexual tension too early it definetly ruins the movie, I know lots of people out there that just want to scream Kiss already, but I am actually cheering them on not to kiss, because once they do that anticipation is gone. And to me anticipation is always better than the actual moment.

FINALLY, a thread that isn't so far gone that I can't participate. Haha

I can't believe the name of the movie eludes me, but the director had the two main characters paste a photo of one another on the ceiling above their beds so they can dream about them. I thought that was a sweet idea, and helps amp up the authenticity of the chemistry. I'm kind of wary about this movie, because they have to be in love with each other on another level--I'm excited if they get it right, cause it will create pure magic on screen that I haven't seen in a while

What makes good on screen chemistry?

Well i always think, that if the actually people are friends or attracted to one another it makes mind-blowing chemistry. This rarely happens, but it would be awesome if Robert + Kirsten had this, cause it makes all the difference to a movie.

What are some successful on screen duos?

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic
Keira Knigtley and Orlando Bloom in POTC
Claire Danes and Charlie Cox in Stardust
Nicole Kidman and Ewan MacGregor Moulin Rouge!
Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio in William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet
Keira Knigtley and James McAvoy in Atonement

I know some of these are personal favourites, but they all struck me as very real. Next time i make a list i think Robert + Kirsten will be up their, i have a good vibe.

Are there some examples of bad on screen chemistry out there?

Of course, i didnt think that Hayden Christian and Natalie Portman were good at all, they didnt seem in love.
Also Nicole Kidman + Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut. was just embarrassing, since they were married.



Can good chemistry or the lack there of make or brake a movie?

I think if a movie, doesnt have the right Chemistry then it just throws it all off. It can wreck relationships, marriges. If theres over-flowing chemistry then a movie just comes to life, lights up the screen.

How does this chemistry effect the viewer?

Good chemistry makes it feel like your watching somebodys love story unfold, like your watching the way they feel through a window to their minds. A movie can be unbearable if the chemistry's wrong.[/i]

Okay, I like Kristen. I like Robert. But do I like them together? I have no idea!!

But if they say they have good chemistry, I'll try my best to believe them.

I've heard they have good chemistry together, but time will tell in the end.

Ah, Noah and Allie are a perfect example! :D
And, hm... Perhaps Christian and Satine (sp?) from Moulin Rouge.
Even when they looked at each other .0001 of a second, there seemed to be sparks of some sort.
It's fun to watch, haha. :)
