Twilight: The Movie

So just got back from Twilight, probably the last person on the face of the earth to see it. I was very pleased with it, it was just what I expected. Definitely a fine adaptation unlike some of the majorly plot altering adaptations of books I've seen in the past.

It was definitely cheesy at times, especially when Bella joins Edward's Biology class, I mean geez! My favorite scene was the baseball scene, loved all the quick slow quick slow shots plus the great Muse song. That's one I'll watch over and over again on the dvd. Wonder how long we will have to wait for that to come out!

I think I feel pretty much the same about the movie as I did about the book. Wanted more of the Cullens, more Jacob, just more everything. Every time any of the other Cullens were on screen I got so excited, I just love that group of characters but to me they played pretty minor roles like in the book.  I guess we will just have to sit and wait at least a year for New Moon.

What are your thoughts on Twilight the movie?

  3. It's easy to forget that the Cullens aren't really featured very much in the first book isn't it? The subsequent movies should be good if only for more Cullens.

  4. Hey Alea: You are not one of the last to see it. I haven't seen it and have no desire to see it. I could never understand the fascination with vampires?????

  12. I put my thoughts here: http://celluloidcrazy.blogspot.com/2008/11/edward-why-are-you-making-that-face.html.

    It was okay. (Is that a good endorsement?) I think New Moon will be better.

  13. I liked it okay. The baseball scene was my favorite, and I loved Charlie and Emmet. The rest I was kind of meh about. Or I was laughing at the silliness of it. My real review is here.

  14. the baseball scene was great, but I loved the battle between edward and james in the ballet studio best. I have to say that and the flying through the trees was fantastic.
