Twilight

(I'm not giving anything away, so you can read on if you haven't seen the movie yet... although we've all read the book so we know what happens)

What a fun day! I went to see Twilight today with a bunch of awesome girls. We got there an hour early to secure our fabulous center seats... bought our tickets FANDANGO like 3 weeks ago, too bad the theater wasn't full... but that's okay!!!!!! It was such a fun girls "morning" out, the movie was great.
*******
The Verdict: No, the movie is not as good as the book. But think about how much time we devote to reading the book(s) and then re-reading and discussing with friends and going to book clubs. There's no way to sum up all that and compare it to a 2 hour movie, it's just not a fair comparison. I was pleased with the movie, and I'm excited to go see it again! I do wonder if the movie flows if you haven't read the books. I mean I truly understand how deep Edward's love for Bella is... but from an outsider's perspective, I'm not sure the depth of it is really understood.
The best parts were those little funny subtle remarks that you could only understand after reading all 4 books, and Midnight Sun, and thus truly knowing the characters. The book is better, but the movie is still worth seeing. I don't know what to do with myself if they take a whole year for the second one to come out.

You girls are so cute! I felt the same way about it. I kept trying to fill Darren in cause I felt like he wasn't getting it all either. Or at least I wanted him too. I want to see it again too.
