A woman at work told me "When they wake into the sun they look like they are heading to a gay bar since they are covered in body glitter" Well that does not sound to fun.

But it sounds funny. I think I may just go watch it for that laugh

I feel actually a little sorry for the series. Can't there be sane fans who like the books and movie(s) but aren't screaming about it? Some who will actually try to say to all the people who over-analyze it "Sometimes a book is just a book; it doesn't hold the secret to the universe."
Now if we were talking about Hitchikers Guide, that would be another story, but we're not. It's a piece of teen literature - and I mean teen as in, 10-13 year-olds have no reason to be reading this, 14+ - meant purely for the fun pretty characters.

it was possibly the funniest thing i have ever seen
it was awkward and lame and just stupid
i laughed through the entire movie

bella: so how long have you been watching me sleep?
edward: ...a few months

yeah it was "bad" compared to the book, but if you walk into the movie thinking it's gonna be a joke, then you won't be disappointed. worth the $10 admission.

so... twilight is only for girls right? it looks like a drama like candy candy involving some vampires.. so gay.. i mean.. in the interview with the vampire.. they were gay but the movie wasn't gay at all..

so that's my question.. it's for girls right?


also.. almost no boys had posted anything...

@Daichii- my friend's older (straight) brother came with us and he liked it. the movie is actually pretty funny regardless of your gender. if anyone walks into it thinking it's going to be a good dramatic romance, then you'll just be disappointed.
and I know some (straight) guys who read the books and didn't mind them or even liked them. but most boys probably wouldn't like them..

"This movie kind of sucks."
that quote summed everything up. none

Quote from GreenTeaStrawberry
I just saw Twilight yesterday and I've got to say it was terrible. Before I even watched the movie I had a bad impression because of the cast anyway but let me state why it was terrible.

Overall, the movie was terrible. Rotten Tomatoes rated it 44% on it's Tomatometer. Even after I had explained all the flaws of this movie to my friends, all they did was call me a hater and gush about Edward's hotness.

I watched Madagascar 2 after that and I have to say, it was much better. Much better than how I expected it to be too. It was hilarious and entertaining. Twilight was much worse than I thought it would be, and Madagascar was much better. Funny turnout, eh?

i know how you feel. i watched it the first day, and the whole place was filled with ten year olds, screaming and clapping at everything. i stated the same flaws to my friends as well and they called me a hater too. anyways i got a few things i particularly disliked myself:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
1. when bella first entered the bio class. that was the worst overreaction ever. edward was supposed to look furious, but instead he looked completely idiotic. i dunno what kind of genre they were trying to make, but if they wanted a lame cheap comedy, they succeeded.

2. his contacts. when bella asked "are you wearing contacts?" i was crying inside for edward to say "why yes, yes i am!". i clearly saw the lining of his contacts, and i saw them more than once. instead of attempting to do cool cg effects, they shouldve spent a little time softening the lining of the contacts.

3. "you better hold on tight, spider monkey." W.T.F. i only wish that edward was implying that bella looked like a spidermonkey. then it would have been funny.

4. the running and jumping scenes were ridiculous. even with a crappy $37m budget, they could have done better. putting them on swinging ropes would have been better. putting them on treadmills with a chroma key in the back would have been better AND cheaper.

5. too many mistakes in the video. blood and then no blood, wet and then dry and back, and the course of the baseball emmet and edward missed when they hit each other was ridiculous. first the ball goes at about 50mph, and after the two smash into each other and make no contact with the ball, it lands 3 feet away from them. because physics is like that.

6. did i mention fangirls? that's all i need to say on this part.

i thought this movie was pure crap before it came out; turns out i was right. the only reason why i didn't just pirate it the day after it showed instead of wasting my money was because my friends wanted to watch it with me :/ they were also the reason why i didn't demand my money back.

I went to see the movie yesterday without having read any of the books. So I had no expectations whatsoever.

Overall I thought the movie was ok. I thought the acting was solid all around, and especially enjoyed Robert Pattinson as Edward. I also fell in love with the backdrop for the movie - the forests and scenery looked amazing. The makeup for the vampires was impressive as well - I especially liked the first entrance for the Cullens vampires - each one practically lit up the entire cinema with their white-as-snow skin. laugh

Now onto the bad stuff. I did not feel any chemistry between Edward and Bella. Which is a massive disappointment considering the whole movie was about their love affair. I thought Kristen Stewart did a good job, but I just wasn't feeling it. no And the movie was so looonnng! It's such a straightforward and simple story that everything could have been condensed to 90~100 minutes, instead of 2 hours. I was checking my watch by the time the movie passed the 1 hour mark. Also, some parts of the story were really slow - only when James met Bella did things get exciting. Oh, and the ending was bleh. I know there's going to be a sequel, but they could have made it better a.k.a. conclusive. Instead there's like 3 'mysteries' left in the air in the last 5 minutes alone.

I don't regret going to see the movie, since it only cost me $5.50, but it'll probably take some convincing for me to go see "New Moon". I don't really think there's anything else new and exciting that could happen since Bella and Edward are already together. Am definitely not interested if a new love interest is gonna show up.
