Twilight movie...

I went to the midnight showing on Thursday with my friend Geri. We sat in the two handicapped seats in the back row of the lower sections which were great seats. We're both pregnant, we thought that counted. The house was packed full. The previews started. The crowd screamed and cheered when the Harry Potter preview showed. Then cheered again as the movie started. There was lots of cooing, sighing, giggling, awwing, etc when Edward first showed up, Carlisle came on screen, and the kissing scene. That made the movie even more fun to watch though.
I liked the movie a lot. An Oscar winner it is not but who was really expecting that from a teen romance saga?? I thought there were a few things taken out , dialogue mostly, that I would've liked to see but how long could the movie have been if everything I wanted to see was in it? Too long probably. It was fun to watch, I will see it again, I will buy the DVD when it comes out and I'll probably even read the books again at some point. I can't wait for the second movie which they totally set up at the end. I think they will maybe get a bigger budget and do some better effects and the characters should be developed more with all the introductions now out of the way. Love the soundtrack, still thinking about the movie 3 days later.
Never could've been as good as the book but still fun to see parts of it on the big screen.

Agreed on all points. Can't wait for New Moon either. :)

I agree with you too - I loved it overall. There were some things I didn't like and some less than stellar performances, but I was giddy as a teenager while I was watching and will totally go see it again!

It was good and I will invite myself over to watch it when you buy it!

(By the way, I totally just used this same background on my blog! Great minds think a like.)

I'm glad you talked me into going. I had a ton of fun. I hope our "girls" enjoyed their first of many Girls' Nights together! (We might have to leave them home for the next movie though) :)

I agree with everything you said. There were tons of girls screaming during the beginning at our theater and every scene with Jacob, etc. I did get into Rob Pattinson being Edward. He (in most scenes) lived up to the hotness of Edward and I felt as if I was 16 years again (even though I'm like a half a life away from that age!) while I was watching it. Lots of good fun! Can't wait for New Moon. :)

I totally agree! I loved it! i have already seen in twice and I am going to see again next week :) And I also have the soundtrack as well! So many people have said they didn't like it, but I totally disagree...you can't expect a movie to be JUST like the book--anyway, it was awesome! Can't wait for the next one to come out! :)
