Okay so I was able to go the early bird 12:01 am opening of Twilight last. At least half of our ward was there so there were plenty of people I knew. I drove with a friend there and back so that was kind of fun too. Anyway, after seeing the movie, I did think it was pretty good. I was a little upset that they didn't follow the book as closely as I had hoped but, it was still a good movie. I liked how the main characters were portrayed. Rob Pattinson made a good Edward. That being said...
I would have liked to have seen more of the rest of the Cullen family. I don't think they developed their characters enough in the movie. Also some characters were left completely out, like Lauren. And what is with Charlie and Bella eating in a cafe all the time. Wasn't their father daughter relationship developed with her cooking and taking care of him? Also Edward never said I love you to Bella in the movie. There was no you dazzle me, in the movie either, which I think was a big part of the book. The way Edward "dazzled" Bella all the time. But, I guess there is only so much that you can do to fit a 500 page book into a 2 hour movie.
I really did like the movie though. I will probably go see again before it's out of the theater and will deifinitely buy it on DVD. I have also heard rumors that they are going to have the "New Moon" sequal out by Dec of next year. I hope they do. The ending of Twilight the Movie definitley left the wide possiblity open for New Moon.
So, those of you who have seen Twilight, let me know your thoughts on it as well.
