Don't read this if you haven't seen it...

So I went and saw Twilight last Friday along with everybody else in the world and their grandmas.

A bunch of us went together to celebrate Karolee's birthday and Cresta had the brilliant idea of seeing a matinee showing. No line, we just walked right in! And it was cheaper. Which is a good thing because weather or not is worth the money is debatable. It was worth mine because I absolutely adore these books, if you aren't head over heels for the books then you will probably think the movie is kinda stupid.

I personally thought it was pretty good. The thing that bugged me was sometimes when the actors said something directly from the book it came out super cheesy and it the book it wasn't. And the meadow scene...ugh. That should have been edited right out of the film if that's how they were gonna do it. Did the budget run out right before they added the crystal effect on Edward? Come on! I have shimmer powder that would do a better job than that! On the other hand, loved the scene where Edward rescues Bella from those guys and the baseball scene was great too. The best part was when Alice rips James' head right off. Kidding. I did enjoy it though.

Afterward, we went to dinner at Streets of New York. Yum! Cresta and Suzy had to run home after the movie. We missed you guys!

We did the friday matinee to, great way to go. I'm on the fence about the whole movie. I did enjoy myself, but I agree, the word for word spots were a little silly. My favorite was when Bella walked into Biology for the first time, of course I'm kidding, our entire audience was cracking up at Edwards silly face. That was supposed to be really dramatic, right?

yes, I definitely agree with the cheesy "meadow" part. It was awful, just plain awful. Good thing the scenes following it were decent or it could have ruined the whole movie! Looks like you guys had fun!

Here, Here-I agree with your critiques of the movie, plus I added a few more to my blog. It was worth seeing, but definitely some things could have been better. Low budget movie man! Hopefully now that they made the big bucks, they can afford to put more into New Moon. But...no movie is gonna top the books, they are just too darn good!
