Twilight Review

So I am finally writing my review of the movie. I have been very busy this weekend. So I have to admit I was a little disappointed in the movie at first, but after digesting it over few days I am liking it a little more. The fact is movies are never as good as the books. They just have to take out so much to fit it into 2 hours. I thought I was prepared for that, but it still takes some getting use to. When I first left the movie I would have given it a 3 out of 5, now maybe a 4. A friend of mine said when you first see the movie you are comparing it to the book no matter how hard you try not to so you have to see it again now that you are prepared for what is going to happen and then maybe you'll getter a more unbiased opinion of it. My brothers girl friend got him to go with her and he has not read the books. He said that it was pretty good. So I think that he is the best judge, and he isn't even a teen girl. Well we are all going back on Saturday my mom wants to see it so I will let you know if it gets better. I suggest to everyone who hasn't read it or seen it but is thinking about it, go see the movie first and then read the books you will be happy you did.

Totally true. Honestly, I have only read the books through once, and I was so anxious to get through them to just find out what happened that the little day-to-day stuff just got in my way, and that's what they took out for the movie. So, I was fine with that.

Of course, the book was better. I agree about seeing the movie first...then you can go and read the book and enjoy all the other parts that are filled in for you, rather than reading first and being annoyed about what's missing.

John saw it, having never read the books and he liked it enough that he's going to read them now. I think we will do so together now that I'm not so anxious to "get it done"...

(Sorry, REALLY long comment...)

I am so glad to have stumbled onto your blog! I liked the movie after a few days too. I hear that it is way better the second time around so I think I will give that a try. Anyway glad to see you are happy and welcome back to Nevada.

I was a bit disappointed with the movie. It was really choppy and had little character development. I'm hoping "New Moon" will be better.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!
