Twilight the movie - My own review
I've read all the books by Stephanie Meyer in the Twilight series. I loved them all - so maybe I'm a bit biased.
However, I did not expect to love the movie like the books. So when I went to see Twilight the movie with a girlfriend from my bookclub, it was with no preconceived expectations.
Actually, to be honest, I thought I wouldn't really enjoy it too much. Was I ever wrong.
From the trailers, I thought that Jacob would look about 12 years old, not much of an arch enemy for Edward. However, in the film, Jacob was much better than I'd expected.
The only thing I really didn't like was Dr. Cullen. He wasn't what I'd expected, he wasn't what I'd hoped for, he just wasn't...
And, the makeup was over the top and could have been thought of as campy - by someone - but not by me. The vampires from the Cullen family were more "white" than pale, which I thought was a mistake. However, I loved little perky Alice - she was perfect.
And Edward was much better than I'd expected. The movie was a lot better, all around, and a lot of fun for a girls' day out.
I might even see it again - with my daughter.
So what did you think of the movie?
