I mean, it was alright. But my sister spent 200 dollars for the premier and then she had a sad look on her face after. I watched it a week later and I wasnt impressed. Who thinks this is true? False?

hey ravenladyj, did you see it yet. I have read all the books and saw it when it came out on thurdsay the 21st. grrrr. I wanted to hurt and throttle something .. LOL! it was 90% changed from the book and let me say the changes were not good. If you're a die hard fan that loved the books there is no way that this movie does it any justice at all.

I haven't watched this movie yet. Can you provide some points as to why it sucked? I need to know, because I'm currently choosing it over Bolt the Superdog although I'm rooting more for Bolt. I'm curious about Twilight though.

go see bolt trust me it's the better of the two and I loved the twilight series in book format. Saw the movie and I will say if I saw that before reading the book I would have never read the series.

It was okay.. Nothing grand. Nothing that great. Especially when you've read the book, there are parts they really changed. Like, Rosalie isn't supposed to talk to Bella but in the movie, Rosalie actually shows herself to Bella and exchanged a few words with her. But anyway, it still showed Rosalie being pissed off because of Bella.

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. However, I would not spend $200 dollars to watch it. I watch it twice and I spent only like $20, and I get to enjoy it with friends. I'm sorry, for me, premieres are overhype events that allows you to spend far too much when you don't need to. I hope she got more than just the experience of watching the movie for that money. 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. I still prefer the books over the movie, because there are so many details you can get from a book that is virtually impossible to express on film.

Actually people always have different opinion. I find Twilight a good romantic movie, it has a great theme: an extraordinary love build in trust, respect and affection. The tender love dialogues between Bella and Edward are wonderful to hear. I also read the book, film adaptation always have different interpretation because it is made through cinematic purposes. Producer just bought the right of the story to transport to motion picture and not the word for word translation. Usually it differs on how the director and screenwriter build their own script. In general, Twilight is one of the great romantic films of the 21st century.

Obviously your sister must have expected more in the movie but she should have conditioned herself that books are more detailed than in movies. You cannot put every movements of the character in the movie and squeeze it into a 2-2 1/2 hours. I saw the movie and I've read the Twilight Saga, let's just say that the director made some changes on the plot and the sequence of the scenes. And on the start of the movie, Bella and Edward got-to-know each other in a fast pace compared to the book.

I think the movie was pretty good, but the book is obviously better though, but with regards to the acting, I think it was all very well portrayed, and 200 bucks for a movie? wow! Me myself I wouldn't spend that much for just one movie.
