Im trying not to listen to what others have to say about the movie. honestly i know that the funding for this movie was low so i am not expecting it to be some crazy over the top CGI movie. but whatever! i am still excited. only 12 hrs to go!!

First, how did you people see the movie already???
Ah, well only seven more hours for me to wait. Ugh, that sounds longer than it feels.
But from what I've seen, the running looks fake, but whatevs. I'm not seeing it for the effects. I'm seeing it for the story!

The sparkling was better then I imagined it, but then I didn't have high expectations for the CGI because of the production company behind it. Low expectations for the graphics make them seem better.

The baseball was fun.

I didn't mind the special effects, though sometimes they were cheesy. It was supposed to be jumping not flying but it did look more like flying sometimes. I thought the running, baseball game, and the sparkling was great. If you read the movie companion they said they had a lot of trouble trying to get the sparkling right. I think they did the best they could. Overall I don't think it matters too much; it's about the story. I mean the original Star Wars is still a great movie and they sure didn't have CGI back then. :D

He said they've decided to now use CGI.


I'm worried! I hope it comes out looking real... but then again, what's so real about a sparkling vampire?


The vampire Sparkle was BRILLIANT!!!! He looked... Frosted with glitter? In my mind when I was reading the books... the description was ambiguous, and I honestly couldn't even imagine it.... it was so hard. And I thought the idea was kinda lame (but that was just because I didn't imagine it at all properly)
haha The movie made the sparkling thing really really easy, not to crazy... there were not big lame beams of light reflected off of him at all or anything! So that Was AWESOME!

I have to say this... My favorite FAVORITE scene was the BASEBALL GAME! WOW WOW WOW! In my mind a vampire game of baseball was just too much to imagine. besides their speed I didn't really see how it would all come together..... But I can say that the scene was better than perfect! I loved Alice's pitching! She was so quirkey and graceful. I thought JASPER WAS SO HOT UP AT BAT!
hahahaha.... Their little base ball outfits were so cute!
The music - supermassive black hole was PERFECT!

Wow! Who else agree's... that scene was so much fun!

i def agree.. i think jasper looked super HOT when he twirled that bat around. i was like meow... rarrrrr.. i like that side of jasper..

when they i saw edward sparkling i leaned over and told a friend of mine "OMG he is so beautiful".. i was extremely pleased with how they did it. i was worried that it was going to look super cheesy.. but it was great...

another one of my fav scenes was the fight scene. it was awesome... i mean with the low budget that they had i think they did a good enough job. i was extremely pleased with the movie and it left me wanting more... when it ended i was like NOOOOOOOO i want more.. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Very embarrassed by the special effects. I understand they had a low budget...but wow.
I do agree that the baseball scene was done well.

I think the special effects were cheesy. the running was horrible but i have to agree his sparkling was done beautifully. i expected like just millions of lights coming out of him, but it wasnt like that and it was refreshing.

i really want to know what SM thinks of all the reviews. ive been reading a lot of them online and they arent very good :(

The cheesy running was easier to overlook the second time and it was a little less cheesy.

The glitter could have been better, but the second time I was less dissapointed.

There were so few special effects that it was kinda nice. We are not dealing with Star Wars here...
