I’m sure this is exactly what you wanted to hear about!

I suppose the Twilight obsession is over for now.  I went to see the movie yesterday with my sister, and was pretty happy with it.  I won’t say much, only that I thought they could have delved into the story a bit more.  Key plots and points were missing, I thought.

There was no way I was going to see it when it first opened, so we went to an early show on Sunday, and there weren’t many people there, it was perfect.

I tried to convince my sister to read the books beforehand, but she never did.  So, I got to spend the two hours answering whispered questions about the story, and then some more on the ride home.  I told her she had to read the books.  I gave her Twilight to read, and once she is finished, we’ve decided to see it again.  Hopefully the second time around will be more successful.

Don’t be mistaken, what they did put in the movie, they did a good job of portraying.  There were a few moments that could have been planned and played out better in my opinion, but overall, it was satisfying.  I think the characters were a good fit, Edward especially.  I had my doubts about that one, but aside from the disturbingly hokey parts, he was good. 

We should be thankful for the extreme success this movie has brought in, because now we just have to prepare ourselves for the second one!

    Mousey said it was good, but she WISHED she had not read the book first. She saw it on Friday night with a FULL theater & bunch of girls for a birtday party. She said the squealing girls were SO funny!

    Did your sister like it? I was curious to know if, after seeing the movie, people who had not read the book beforehand would have liked it better. Although I did ultimately like the movie, I’m hoping by the time the second one comes out, they will have made the necessary improvements to make it better.
