Okay, I just got back from watching Twilight the movie... and just let me tell te I am not a happy camper. I mean, I didn't expect the movie to be as good as the book, DUH! The book was AWESOME. The movie, on the other hand left me questioning, "What were they thinking!?!".
Let me just say, there was ALOT of stuff left out of the movie. And the things they did put in it was not comparable to the book.
I should mention that I laughed alot... which might be a good thing if this movie were a comedy, but it wasn't.
Here are just a few things that really bothered me (These are my first impressions - I'll try and add little bits and pieces as I remember them tomorrow):
Jasper - he looked constipated throughout the WHOLE movie.
To me, there was not real connection between Bella and Edward.
And Edward didn't really *dazzle* :( He just kinda looked like he was covered in frost.
There were time that the actors looked like they were grinning o about to laugh, when the situation was supposed to be serious.
Okay, so I didn't totally hate the movie (atleast not as much as the other people at the theater did).
I loved Alice and Emmett and Charlie was okay. And the cameo of Stephenie was cool.
It seemed to me that più effort could have been put forth da the director... the whole thing seemed a little thrown together.
Like I said, these were my first impressions. I will still buy the DVD when it comes out and watch it again and give it another chance. Maybe I had my hopes a little too high. I don't know. *Sigh*
Please do not bash me for my opinion, it is afterall MY OPINION. And I am willing to give this movie another chance (Though I won't pay another $11 to watch it in the theaters).
