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. Oh..and I went to watch it again with another group of friends...and one of them who hasn't read the book..decided she wants to read it too...LOL.. I do prefer the book over the movie though

I will admit, I am an avid reader of Stephenie Meyer. I've read the Twilight series, and I absolutely adore it. I even bared the bitter cold for two hours to wait outside to see the midnight showing of the Twilight Movie. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in the movie, however I know film interpretations of books can never live up to every reader's idea of how the story should be told. So, because of that, I prefer the books, because as a reader you can use your imagination to form the imagery in your mind, as opposed to having it formed for you on screen.

Haha. Figuratively speaking, yes I have. I have read the book and seen the movie and I think both are good. The movie is bound to be inaccurate at some scenes but to me, it was similar enough, and the book is of course the original so a lot of people are going to inevitably choose the book over the movie itself. It was fun seeing the book acted out though, and they did a great job picking the cast.
