Re: Twilight---Stephenie Meyer

I've read all the Twilight books, and I love the series. Granted the 2nd book was slightly depressing and the 3rd book was just jacked up!, but still I liked all the books. The movie is awesome too. I saw it twice, laugh out loud.

I saw the movie and was disappointed.  I think that they left out parts of the book that were key and it was kind of cheesy.  Some of the acting was way overdone and they didn't get into how intense Bells and Edwards relationship was.  I wish that they would of stuck to the book more that they did.  It wasn't a bad movie, but I think that they could of made it a lot better.

Re: Twilight---Stephenie Meyer

I actually wrote a review about the movie for a small local newspaper.  Here it is...

 

Twilight:  The Movie and the Movie Experience. 

 

Remember that boy who made your heart stop every time you saw him?  Remember how your dreams were consumed by him and your days were  incomplete unless you had that ever elusive glimpse?  Remember how your parents told you “NO” while your brain kept screaming “YES”?  Well, welcome to the world of Twilight and the romantic tension inherent in a relationship where the perfect boy happens to be the ultimate bad boy-a vampire.   The movie begins with Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) moving from Phoenix to the cloudy town of Forks, WA to live with her father Charlie.  As she navigates this new town and school, Bella crosses paths with Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) of the beautiful and mysterious Cullen clan.  Edward and Bella are instantly aware of each other and the first 30 minutes of the movie are dedicated to Edward’s efforts to stay away from and then repel Bella in a misguided effort to protect her from his dangerous world.   Bella however is ultimately drawn to Edward’s dazzling beauty and mystery.  In the end, Bella’s choice comes down to this:  live without the man she loves or live happily yet  with the ever present knowledge that he thirsts for her blood.  Does this sound like the stuff of great movie-going?  Don’t judge just yet!  Read on.   Twilight is the first book in the crazy popular young adult series written by Stephenie Meyer.  The book fans are serious indeed and will not settle for imperfection from the movie.  I have read the book in anticipation of the movie and was pleased to see that the movie stands on its own very well.  The pros of the movie are Kristen Stewart’s Bella is a stronger person than the book’s version (who could carry on and on about Edward’s beauty a bit too much, even for my taste) and Robert Pattinson plays the “perfect man” with such simply expressed emotion that Edward never becomes a caricature.  The supporting actors are fresh faces and the movie soundtrack was rockin’.  The cons are the low budget  special effects (but the total movie budget was $37 million so you’ll have to ignore those) and a few scenes when the pacing and editing are off kilter. The audience was filled with females age 12 to 60’s with a few men sprinkled about who I’m sure came to the movie because it was date night.  There were gasps, applauds and whistling throughout the showing and it made for a fun night out.  Twilight makes you yearn for all things vampire and may just become your new guilty pleasure.  I say it’s worth the price of admission, the cost of the soundtrack, all 4 books and a Twilight t-shirt!  Go Team Twilight!

Re: Twilight---Stephenie Meyer

 I just started Breakind Dawn. I don't know what to read when I'm done. Can someone reccomend something? Before I started reading the Twilight Saga, I read the Clique Series. Now I don't want to go back because Twilight has opened so many doors for me. By the way I'm twelve but I'm very mature for my age. I want to read another romantic,suspenseful interesting book that is as absorbing as the books in the Twilight Saga. I'm nervous about the book I pick because I REALLY don't want to be disappointed! Oh and I would prefer books published 2005 or later. Don't ask why-I just would.

Is the Vampire Academy series any good?

Have you read Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely or Ink Exchange?  What about Libba Bray's trilogy starting with A Great and Terrible Beauty?

Re: Twilight---Stephenie Meyer

I saw the movie twice, and while I loved it, I would have liked to see them stick more with the book and show more of the relationship between Edward and Bella - as someone said above.  That to me was also disappointing. 

 

But I was more impressed with the movie's version of the "first kiss" as opposed to Stephanie Meyers' rendition.  The movie seemed more erotic and what a first kiss would have been like between them two.  I must admit I preferred that alternate scene change.

 

And I also must admit, I am Team Edward.

Re: Twilight---Stephenie Meyer

Ithink the Twilight  books are a true legend. I thank Stephenie Meyer so much for writing them. I have already read all for books & yes, i must side with team Edward. I love Jacob's personality of course. For all you who haven't read it & like romance, yet action read it. Yay vampires!!![[espeacially the Cullens]]... xD
