When I got out of the movie and went back to the car with my friend, we just kind of sat there for a minute in awed silence. Then, it hit both of us at the same time, and we just screamed. I actually saw Twilight. Twilight is actually out. I really did just see the most amazing book in the world in real life. Its an amazing feeling.
I loved how the actors portrayed the characters. Rob was SPOT ON with Edward. The meadow scene was amazing, and when he was telling Bella that he could kill people so easily, it seemed like he really hated himself for it. You could feel how lonley and angry with himself Edward was, and how grateful he was that he found Bella. Perfect.
Emmett was HILARIOUS!!! He made me laugh every time he came onto the screen. Haha.
Kristen did very well with Bella. I cant really say what made me like her, but she has always been good to me. She did a very good job with it.
All the other actors did brilliantly. I can't think of one person I didn't like-even Taylor. I was really unsure about him before I saw the movie, and now I'm perfectly fine.
I loved all the added scenes, and the scenes they took out I was ok with too. It can't be exactly like the book, but gosh it was dang close. The only thing I would have changed is that I would have liked a bit more time with Alice, Jasper, and Bella in the hotel. That blasted past, and its one of the things I remember so well from the book, so I was a bit sad. But I got over it when I saw the fight scene. That was spectacular! And the hospital was so nice.
All in all, a VERY good movie. My favorite of all time. It beat Pirates of the Caribbean, which is big considering how much I adore those movies. I can't believe how well everything was put together and done on such a low budget. I don't know what they are going to do with all this money they are making for New Moon. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us.
I just saw this, and had to comment:
during the movie did anyone else have to fight the urge to reach for your tivo controller to rewind certain scenes?
I did that a few times. I was like, wait I missed that, crap, no tivo.
Haha. Yep, that was me.
