Twilight...opening night!


At 12:01 on Thursday night the lights went down, hundreds of girls and their middle aged mothers started to scream. We then escaped into our favorite world full of vampires! I loved every minute of it! It wasn't exactly the best movie ever made but I wasn't going into it expecting it to be. I have to say that Robert Pattinson did an awesome job as Edward. He made me feel all mushy inside a few times...sighhh! You could have looked over and caught me with a silly little grin on my face. Second best actor was the guy who played Charlie, I loved him. I never really connected with Charlie in the books but I loved him in the movie. I was really not impressed with the acting ability of all the high school friends (Jessica, Mike, Tyler, ect.). There was some serious awkwardness to the dialogue most of the time, but again I wasn't expecting oscar quality. All in all, it was great entertainment, I'm looking forward to the next 3 movies! Now I have to go read the series again, I miss my vampires!

I am with you! I loved it. I did think some of the acting could have been better but I really did enjoy it. I am ready to read the books again to tide me over until the next movie!:)

Saw it yesterday too and loved it! It is what it is! I will admit that I'm having a hard time pushing it out of my head today... ;)

I am with you. Liked it, didn't like it. the directing could have been better and i felt it was rushed (I never really felt the movie showed the real deep connection the two of them had. if you hadn't read the book - it just wouldn't seem right (the sacrifice, the wanting to be changed,etc). I was sad some of my fav chapters were butchered (ie meadow scene) but over all I liked it. loved edward too. and i'm excited they announced New Moon is a definite go. Now give them more $$$ and a better director! :) :) :)
