Twilight Review

About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was part of him — and I didn’t know how potent that part might be — that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.195Align Left

ry and i went to see the twilight movie today. i'd have to say it was pretty good. i mean, they had to condense a 500 pg book into 2 hrs and lets be honest the book isn't completely action packed. the great thing about the book is it gives sooooo much detail so you can visualize everything perfectly and completely. so turning all that detail and lil action into a movie made it kinda SLOW. and the movie just didn't have enough time to perfectly develop the relationship between edward and bella. but it was definitely a good effort!! seemed pretty low budget. but all in all i was satisfied!

that's my opinion...what did you think of it????

Right on! I totally agree with you, I was trying so hard to love it, but there were some scenes when the acting was pretty bad. At no point when I was reading the book did I feel there was suppose to be any awkward moments between the two, but durring the movie I felt quite a few!
I found once it picked up towards the end, the action made up for it and I really started to enjoy it. I would deffinatly sit throught it again, slow parts and all!

I came to your blog thru the favorite things list....I liked the movie ok also. It did seem low budget and some parts were cheesy. I'm reading book #2 now and I miss Edward. It's not the same, but I'm hoping it will turn out well!
