The Twilight Legacy
Okay, so I finally saw the Twilight movie...Then I figured that it is my blog, so I have every right to voice my opinion. So I hope no one takes offense (directed at you die hard Twilight fans), but here it goes! I absolutely refused to see this movie in theaters. So Jon and I waited until it came out on DVD and then borrowed from my mother-in-law. It wasn't worth even spending a dollar at the dollar theaters to see it. And we were right, it was worth exactly what we paid to see it, nothing. I was still hesitant to see it, but Jon insisted that he wanted to watch it so we could make fun of it. And that's exactly what we did. This movie was totally random. If it had come into theaters without ever being a book first, it would have failed. It is not done well as a film. Though it was kinda fun to watch, and I did enjoy parts of it, other parts were simply hysterical! For example, the entire scene where Bella tells Edward that she knows he is a vampire, had Jon and I busting our guts with laughter. It was just funny!! The acting was terrible and very overly dramatic. After that scene though, I do admit, the movie got better. It wasn't a bad as I thought it was going to be. But it certainly will never be a movie in our DVD collection. The graphics were terrible. The first time we see Edward take Bella on his back and run was just weird looking, after that though, the running got better. And what the heck was with Edward's sparkling skin?!?! He looked more like a scaly fish or an algae covered rock then a sparkling vampire!! Oh, and Robert Pattinson is STILL not cute!! Vampire or not, that guy is weird looking and, in my opinion, not even remotely attractive! They really could have chosen a better Edward. I think my favorite part of the movie was watching Alice! She is so cute! Jon liked her too!! I also liked the part when Rosalie got mad and broke the salad bowel! Haha! So yeah, all-in-all, a terrible movie but it was fun to watch anyway!
