twilight the movie...





















Hmmm... the jury's still out on Twilight the Movie. I'll need to see it sometime when I'm not surrounded by tittering teens. They giggled at every "mooshy" part and spoke to the screen loudly and I just couldn't get into it.

Mr. Pattinson didn't disappoint as a visual representation of Edward. He is undeniably beautiful. A smidge of overacting in parts but very nice to watch nonetheless. Didn't love the make-up in this movie, the Cullen's should be ethereally pale but not pasty. A couple of the actors just didn't fit the bill in my mind but you can't have it all, I guess.

Overall, upon first review, I would give it a six out of ten. It was good enough that I'll watch it again, hopefully with fewer distractions. It will never live up to the book but I don't expect it to. Seeing Edward incarnate is just icing on the delicious cake that is the Twilight series...

I liked the movie. My favorite part of the evening was witnessing all the teen hysteria! I agree with you that I would like to see it again without the teen chatter. There were some parts that seemed a bit comical that weren't supposed to be and I'm not sure if I was laughing because all the girls were laughing or because it was that bad. I need to see it again. We missed you. But lucky you that your husband took you on a date to see the movie. Mine told me later that night how glad he was that I went with the girls. Said it wouldn't have been possible for him to sit through.

I heard you've been busy designing some things. How are you feeling?

Mmm Hmmm. I am in agreement. I've got my own review on my blog, so you'll have to read more there, but good point about the makeup -that bothered me too. And the "tittering" teens were definitely a bit much for me. Maybe we should see it again together when I get there!

Can I invite myself to the movie with you guys? I'm thinking that bringing your brother is not the best choice after reading the reviews.

Yes! Yes! Please come! We'll go to a matinee and then hash out the details over dinner. That would be so fun!
