Well... I didn't hate it exactly but I sure didn't love it.
The best part was being a part of such excitement. You should have seen the crowd, many of them dressed up as characters in the book or wearing Twilight-related clothing. THAT was fun.
The worst part was how disappointed I was. My most favorite scene - the one where Edward takes Bella to the forest and shows her how his skin sparkles - did not translate at all to film. And I don't know who's brilliant idea the soundtrack was. The whole thing just struck me as cheesy. And hey, I enjoyed the book!
Anyhow, I'm glad I saw it. But I'm also glad it's over. :)

Thanks, I will skip the movie and go for the book.ReplyDelete
you need to talk to me and SF! WE laughed the whole time. It was fun, but definitely goof-ball corny!ReplyDelete
One of my daughters(my 14 year old) has already seen it three times! I haven't seen it yet, but I am sure that like you, I will find it disappointing after reading the book.ReplyDelete
