Twilight - Movie Review
After reading and instantly falling in love with the Twilight series just a few short weeks ago I was excited to see the movie. So when the movie came out this weekend I went out and bought it.
At first I have to say that I thought they cast the wrong guy to play Edward, BUT as the movie went on I actually found that I liked him, he played the tortured soul that is Edward very well! There were a few parts of the movie that I loved like the scene with them playing baseball (it was one of my favorite parts in the book too) I love it when characters just get to have fun even if its just for a little while, makes them more real in my opinion. Even though it wasnt in the book I really like the scene where the bad vampire tells the other one "Lets not play with our food" for some reason even though thier food was a human I laughed does that make me sick? I have to say Edward in the sunlight was just about spot on to what I imagined he looked like they did an execellent job with that!
In my opinion the movie doesnt do the book justice at all! Well truthfully I have yet to see a movie based on a book that does. It touched on the important parts of the book but alot of things were off from the book, if you are one of those people who want the book and movie to match up perfectly you will be disappointed. I thought the movie was good and I am sure that I will watch the movie again and probably again and again ... lol.
