My Twilight Review!
Ok so finally the awaited day has come and gone. I watched twighlight at midnight with my sisters and it was a packed theatre full of anxious twilight fans. Finally after 20 minutes of previews and commercials, the movie started. Not twilight, but Madagascar 2! Lol. What a buzz killer! I can't believe the theatre didn't have one seat open for the most anticipated movie of the year and they didn't even remember to put in the right film. Anyway, I went into the theater with mixed feelings on what the movie would be like. I guess it was exactly what I expected. I didn't love it, but didn't hate it. Whenever someone decides to make a movie inspired by a brilliant book, it never is as great as the book. The book just totally sucks you into the amazing story line and the characters. The movie didn't develop that, no not so much! If you did not read the book before you watched the movie, you would think most of America or world for that matter is insane because of all the hype! One thing I can really say is that I loved the acting, especially with the main characters-Edward and Bella! They both have such a wonderful talent. I've got to admit when Stephanie Meyer first released who would be playing the characters on her website, I was soooo disappointed in the choice for Edward....but, I fell in love with Robert Pattinson as Edward from the moment I watched him walk into the lunch room. He played Edward as this Romeo, James Dean, Heathcliff and Brad Pitt all rolled into one. He is absolutely beautiful. Did I just say all that? Lol. Kristen Stewart was a fantastic Bella, perfect in every way. A very simple and plain looking girl, but with this undertone beauty just like the book. I love the books but the director did not even begin to capture the magic in them. Overall it was fun and entertaining.
