Twilight

I have had to avoid your blogs my interpeeps. At least those of you that went to see the movie, Twilight, before me. I didn't want to spoil it with your opinions. Did you like it...did you hate it...was it lame...were you left in awe.....

I couldn't know the answers to those questions until I had seen for myself.

And now...now that I have seen for myself..... I will visit you again. Never fear! :0)

BTW...I was totally let down. :0( I'm hoping they get a bigger budget for the next one because this one just didn't do it for me. Now...my neice on the other hand...she is in love. :0) For me...it played out like a badly shot "made for tv" movie that would have played as an after school special for teenagers. It jumped so quickly from scene to scene that the overall flow of the book was lost and the building of the real love between Edward and Bella ended up seeming more like stalker infatuation. And honestly...didn't Jasper look more consipated than "struggling" to fight his vampire urges? Sigh.

Anyway...I can move on. The anticipation is over and I can once again enter the blogosphere without the fear of spoiling anything. :0)

I think with the fact they made $70 million the first weekend...the next one will be bigger budget. I am totally with you on your thoughts.

i haven't read the twilight books, so the movie would probably be lost on me. :) i DID see the new 007 movie and the new transporter movie. both equally entertaining. :)

Yes, it was clearly low budget and cheesey but it was fun to see anyway. If you want some eye candy though, go see the new Bond flick. Daniel Craig is hot.

HI Ashlee.. I am with you. I was highly anticipating this movie and was very disapointed. I was so obsessed with these books and these characters that I expected more. When watching Jasper's character, I felt like it was a SNL skit. I'm glad we agreed. I guess I will continue to live with the characters I have imagined in my head. BTW..thanks for inviting me to your blog. What would I do with all of my free time. :)

I've heard it is better the second time. I may take Wade to see it just to decide for myself.
