I'll start with a question.
How can one movie make an entire, sold out movie theater full of women act like 13 year olds? I'm not sure....but it can happen.
Now with the story.
Lately when I want to see a movie that Benji doesn't really care about, I'll wait until Jordan is sleeping and go by myself. Tonight I went to Twilight alone. This is just to make all of my Utah friends jealous, but I bought my ticket 30 minutes before the show started and had a great seat.
I didn't expect to enjoy the movie as much as I did, but I loved it! I have read all of the books and I think they are okay, but I don't love them. I think part of the reason I enjoyed the movie so much is because I knew the personalities of the characters so well from the books. So reading the books probably does make the movie better.
Here are things I loved about the movie:
Edward, Bella, Esme, and Alice. Jasper was my favorite character though...he made me laugh out loud every time I saw him.
The things I hated about the movie:
When Edward went in the sunlight and his skin sparkled...why did it have to make a sparkly noise? The noise ruined it!
Carlisle and Rosalee (the acting and personalities were fine, but they didn't look the part).
Bella's prom dress!!! (The Alice I know would not approve!)
One more thing. There were two or three girls (women really) sitting right behind me and every time they saw Edward, Edward and Bella together, Edward and Bella kissing, Edward and Bella talking, Edward and Bella touching they would screech, "EEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!" Every time.
