Twilight Review

I have heard from MANY of my friends (bloggers and non) on what they thought of the Twilight Movie... so here is what I think...
***I mention specifics, so if you don't want to hear it, don't read it!***

Over all, I was a little dissapointed... especially with the special effects. I thought some of their lines were a bit corney, and I am sad they left out important details such as when Edward hears Bella talking in her sleep and says "Edward Stay" and he falls in love with her... or how you can't even tell that Edward can read minds - I don't think someone who has not read the book would have fully understood what was going on... but, that being said - I really did enjoy the movie. I didn't realize HOW low-budget it was, so I was expecting more... but I think they did a really good job.

I really like the casting - ESPECIALLY Edward Cullen! And I was surprised to find that I liked Esme as well! Emmett cracked me up everytime he opened his mouth and Charlie was just as awkward in the movie as he was in the book. I thought the 'evil' vampires did a GREAT job acting their part!
I am going to see it again on Friday - and I am THRILLED! I am still just as taken by Edward (if not more) than I was when I read the novels.

And can you believe that I went to the showing that DID NOT show the Harry Potter trailer?? I mean what kind of luck is that?!?!? So I am even MORE thrilled that I will finally get to see that trailer on the big screen! So again -
(could I ever get enough??)

You are SO funny, Rachel! I really agree with your review and I think I am going to see it again too. The group I saw it with was mocking the movie the whole time and rolling their eyes, so I would probably enjoy it more without them. :) Plus, now I know how cheaply made it was and I should be able to just enjoy the movie without focusing on that. I do wish they had developed Bella and Edward's relationship more though...
