So, last night I went with this big group to go see the midnight premier of Twilight. It was great–a bunch of moms, with our kids at home, standing in line at midnight and squealing with excitement. (Oh yes, we squealed. You gotta get into the spirit of it all, right?)
As for the movie itself, pretty good. In fact, I think it was an improvement on the book. Edward came off as less jerkish and they wove in the James/rouge coven plot line better. It actually felt related to the whole story, not just tagged on at the end. Also, we didn’t have to see the endless grimaces, crooked smiles, and we didn’t have to feel Bella’s heart stop every time she even looked at Edward.
I thought the acting was surprisingly good and the music was awesome. Overall, I actually rather enjoyed myself. I’d recommend it for those who have read the book, especially if you weren’t all that impressed with the books. You’ll probably like the movie better.
