My Twilight review:
Me and two friends decided to take our daughters to the first Twilight showing, last night at 12:01 a.m. We bought our tickets days in advance. The girls thought we were "cool" because we were taking them to a midnight movie on a school night. We arrived at the cinema an hour before the start time, and even then, our theater was almost full. Unfortunately, the only way the six of us could sit together, was in the third row (I hate sitting that close, but, that was our only choice unless we wanted to all split up). The majority of the movie-goers were female, but, there were men there as well. Girls were wearing shirts with sayings such as "bite me" or "Team Edward". There was definitely excitement in the air. When the lights went out and the previews were finished, the movie started to a room full of girls screaming and cheering. Luckily, they were pretty quiet after that. I was hooked from the very first moment the movie started. Bella was portrayed perfectly by Kristen Stewart. And Edward....for an icy cold vampire, he couldn't have been any hotter! Robert Pattinson was fantastic. I was happy that the majority of the movie was pretty true to the book. There were a few minor changes, but, nothing that took away from the story at all. I loved Charlie, and the way that his relationship with Bella was a little awkward. I loved Carlisle, too. I won't go into any details of the plot or give any spoilers. But, I will mention a few of my very favorite scenes. When Bella walked into the biology class and had to take the seat next to Edward - his very first reaction to her was hilarious. The Cullen family baseball scene was a blast to watch. Of course, the scene where Bella and Edward shared their first kiss was pretty awesome. And, I loved the ending - it was just the right cliff-hanger for going into the next book. So, are you planning on seeing Twilight? If so, let me know what you think.
