Woo, it's been forever since I wrote one of these! Anywho I finally was able to watch Twilight the other night. I feel like I'm the only person who actually sorta kinda wanted to see the movie that hadn't seen it yet. Then again, I just only read the books a few months ago and I still haven't read Breaking Dawn yet simply because everyone says it's not very good. But this review isn't about the books, it's about the movie so we won't discuss the books other than how it relates to the movie.
I happen to be on twitter while I was watching the movie, therefore I would tweet occasional thoughts while watching such as:
hmm watching twilight....Charlie's house is not at all what i picturedwhy did i always picture angela to be blonde?there's a lot of slo mo in the movie, it's rather distractinggood god Carlise is paleand he does not look 23LOL to Little Brown being one of the places that bella could buy that book fromhow much hair gel does rob pattinson use?vampires in sunlight look like bad TV receptionwhy in the world do you want to date someone who keeps talking about killing you???hmm i always imagined the cullens living in a big victorian style mansion.Alice is like how i imagined. which is good considering Nikki Hale as rosalie is not the most beautiful vampire everhaha author cameoreally? laurent is pronounced loron? i've been saying Lor-rentlame the scene in the hospital, the TV in the background is playing the same scene that JUST happened before (the dance hall)
How did I like the movie? Well on a scale to 1 to 10 with 10 being best, I give it a 6. The storyline is ok, the movie making is mostly good, the acting is rather cheesy. Well I thought Kristin Stewart was a very good Bella and I really like Taylor Lautner as Jacob (BTW I have been and always will be Team Jacob). Sorry but whenever I see Rob Pattinson, I see Cedric Diggory. And even then, he was NOT how I pictured Cedric to be. I would compare his acting to Hayden Christensen in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. I guess with all the hype I was expecting near Oscar worthy acting. Ok just joking but I had heartthrobish expectations. Unforutnately he doesn't do a thing for me. And then I have trouble with the whole Bella/Edward intensity of their relationship. It just isn't healthy. And really shouldn't be promoted for teen girls. Believe me, girls are already obsessive enough.
So will I see New Moon? I will, but not in theaters. I can wait for the DVD. Final verdict: ok, movie not the best. Comparable with the book. Does that say anything?
