for me the movie was just okay...some scenes and important events in the book were not shown in the movie. The only problem is..the phasing of the story was very fast and some important scenes were not shown in the movie, but all in all..I can say that twilight movie was good..the characters who portrayed the roles were perfect for their roles in the movie..I like Edward and Bella...but in the ending,for me its questionable..maybe because it has a continuation..the new really addicted in try and watch it on the theater...

I dread the time that I will have to watch the movie and read the books. Too much hype over something that isn't even good. If people want ROMANCE NOVELS then try Judith McNaught. If people want substance then try Ayn Rand. :)

I don't see why you'd HAVE to read the books if you don't want to. or see the film. I mean, I don't like James Bond films so I don't go and see them. simple as that. if a book or a film doesn't appeal to you, no point getting worked up over it, just get on with life and watch or read something else.

It's one of the things I can help myself doing. It's like how I HAVE to read assigned readings when I was still in school - it's to get good grades (even though I know that wouldn't help me in my life in ANY way). So I HAVE to read the books to give valid arguments to those who keep on telling me, "have you read twilight? IT'S THE BEST BOOK EVAHH!!". I can't just say "no, it's stupid", when I haven't read it :D besides, I may not enjoy it for the right reasons, but just knowing that's it's a stupid book to begin with, I think I'll find a way to amuse myself.

I've read the books, and I watched the movie. I thought it was a fun movie to watch. I mean, its not going to get any awards for acting or whatever, but it was entertaining enough that I enjoyed my two hours inside the movie theater. I have to admit I did go in with low expectations, considering that movies based on books, don't usually turn out the way I want. Still, I feel the movie try to stick with the book plot, but made changes that is necessary for a film format. It's actually funny how some poignant scenes in the book came out slightly humorous on the film, but I'm fine with that. I dragged a friend who has not read the books, and when the movie was over she love the film, and I have to accompany her to the bookstore to grab the book. So, I guess..the movie has its own charm.
