Ok, so Kadie and I finally went and saw Twilight. We had a heck of a time getting our schedules to fit.
My verdict? I loved it!
Yes, it's a little corny. No, it isn't as good as the book. Yes, they left a ton out. But I definitely would see it again.
Dena, I highly recommend reading the book before you see the movie. There were a few times during the movie that you could tell who had read the book by the way they reacted to the scene. If you don't read the book, you will still enjoy the movie. But I think you'll like it better if you read the book first.
I was expecting it to be the stupidest movie ever, so I was pleasantly surprised. Like I said, I'd go see it again. In fact I probably will when it goes to the cheap theatre. Anyone want to come with me?
For those of you who have seen the movie, did anyone else notice the author, Stephenie Meyer's cameo appearance in the movie? She was in the diner the second time Bella and Charlie ate there. The scene opens with some random woman sitting at the bar or whatever. If you wondered why they did that, it's because she is the author:) Hey, if I ever have a book made into a movie, I want to be in the movie too! But first I guess I'll have to have a book published.
So. I loved Twilight the movie and I'm excited that they're making New Moon into a movie. (Haven't heard about that? Click here.) I'm not excited about New Moon per se, I'm just excited that the Twilight Movie franchise is going well because that means they'll probably make an Eclipse. New Moon is not my most favorite book ever, it's just sort of a speed bump. Something you have to go over to get to the other side: Eclipse.
PS. This is really weird, but I loved Bella's style in the movie. If I could go back to being a teenager, I'd dress just like her. :)
