The movie

November 21, 2008 · 3 comments

My friend Shine asked me to go see Twilight with her. As you may know, I am not a big fan of movies made from books, but based on the reviews and excitement all over the place, I decided to give it a try.  Besides, it made a grand excuse for going out on a Friday night!! :lol:

So, here’s the thing…

I liked it.

I really liked it.

It would have been better without a theater full (and I mean FULL) of screaming teenagers, but it was good.

The movie followed the book fairly well – impressively, even.

I was very unsure about Edward. I was very pleasantly surprised. And the scene in which he drives in to save Bella from the group of guys in Port Angeles? (Basically the same as in the book): totally hot. :oops:

I anxiously await the next one.


The theater was packed with teenage girls. There were probably about 7-10 men total in the entire theater.  A few dates, a few (really good) dads there with their daughters and friends. People had Twilight themed shirts and bags and headbands; this was a big deal.

And I had fun.

Thanks, Shine. If not for you, I would have waited for the DVD. This was way better.

I went with my daughter (13) and also dragged my husband…he said the movie made him “throw up in his mouth a little”…ha ha! My daughter and I liked how it pretty much followed the book. The way Jasper’s eyes were all bugged out kind of creeped me out though.

Oh…and we went to an earlier showing and there were no screaming girls thank goodness…just some giggling and laughing. My sister went to a later showing and said there were girls screaming anytime Edward was on screen or they thought that he might kiss Bella…she said it was pretty annoying…
