I will try not to give anything away from the movie!

I went to the midnight showing of Twilight last night with some of my girl friends, I went to the movie with the main thought in my mind that NO Hollywood movie has ever been able to be as good as the book and twilight is no different.

My thoughts on twilight: Over all it was a good movie.... Even though the book played out like a movie in my head. It was fun to see the book brought to life on the big screen for real.

I love who they chose for the characters... I know a lot of people didn't like Robert Pattinson playing the role of Edward but I think he's beautiful and I think they were able to capture the look of each character very well. The acting was sometimes cheesy and it's definitely difficult to get a 500+ page book into a two hour movie so it felt like a speed race. I have to say if the book wasn't so dang great I wouldn't complain about the movie at all... I was disapointed that there was one scene from the book that was not in the movie just because I love it so much....It's the biology blood lab scene, but they covered almost everything else!

Things to consider when you go see Twilight... No movie is ever as good as the book, most of the actors are fairly newbies so some acting was a little cheesy, the budget for this movie was really low and its difficult to get everything we would like to see from the book into a two hour movie.

Over all the movie was really quite good! It was filled with humor, action and romance. Some of the scenes were so flipping cute and I keep doing replays in my head...I'm actually going to take Jason next week... I hope I didn't give too much away it was definitely cute enough to go again while in theaters so that should say something! HAPPY VIEWING!!!


  1. I LOVE THE BOOK MORE FOR SURE!!! BUT I love "Edward" in this movie and he is totally what I was thinking of when I was playing it in my head while reading the book.. I love him.. So cute.. And bella was pretty good too!!!Tif

  2. I want to go see it soo bad! I'm glad you liked it!

  3. Yeah, we'll see if we make it. I am reading it now and I have heard way too many poor reviews...mainly that it was too low-budget so the special effects were pretty poor. I am glad that you had fun and are going again. Cute boys can usually make up for poor effects anyway!

    Love ya!

  4. Nettie, when did you become a reader? I think Im one of those against the grain readers, I still havent read Harry Potter, or this latest Vampire craze, the girls at work cant stop talking about it and Fantisizing about this Edward. They've almost got me talked into reading it. I love when guys are willing to go see the girly flicks.. Jas, your a keeper!
