Twilight

Cindy and I are infamous for going to bed early. . . so there was no staying up till midnight for Twilight! But we did with our very kind husbands go on Friday afternoon!!




Overall experience - pleased. I thought there was some horrible acting at times, some awful casting (Rosalie & Jasper), and not a lot of development. . . But, I did like getting back into the story, and there was some fantastic casting (Edward, Bella & Alice), and some really funny and creative parts.

I think that anyone that didn't read the book would have zero idea what was going on (because of the lack of development) - but I enjoyed it because I did read the book.

I'm going to read the first book again and then see the movie again - and I'll see if I change my mind on anything.

Again - overall pleasant experience (with some heartfelt moments)

I agree with you that the movie had some good moments and some not so good moments. But the moments that I loved really made up for the moments I didn't love. How did you feel about Jacob????

So I saw the movie and never read the books. I think that makes me a dork. Oh well. I enjoyed the movie and I may pick up the book. There is a suprise waiting for you over on my blog....
