WTF?! It was so cheesy and corny and awkward. I felt like theactors/actresses didn't mesh well and the movie was just one bigcluster F of one scene after another. When there were little jokes itwas just awkward silence in the crowd and the entire relationship ofBella and Edward was very awkward. I didn't believe they were in loveand the acting was really bad all around. The CGI was pretty bad aswell. To make them look like they were going fast all they did was makethem blurry. I felt like this movie was made with 90's technology. Thismovie had so much potential to be great but this movie ruined it. Theonly way they can save it now is a reboot with new actors/actresses andpossibly new director.
Will Holloywood ever stop making these typs of films? I mean come on do we really need another inaine move about some vampire that falls in love...? Just add to to the other hundres of movies and books and even TV shows of the digital age.It wouldn't be so bad if they could stick to a single mythology of the Vampire instead of jumping around every myth ever created from everyones opinion. Don't get me wrong, I was a HUGE Buffy (NOT the movie) and Angel fan when they were on the WB but now everything that comes out with vampires is just another vampire movie. They are all the same...unrequited love and people end up dying so they can find that 'love' that can never exist because they come from compleatly different worlds! HOLLYWOOD!!! Please get ORIGIONAL stop making rediclious movies that are just mindless remakes of the same move over and over and over again!
Twilight was an exceptional film in my eyes. I do understand thatcertain parts were a little "eh" as some are putting it. I just adorethe books with all my heart, and I thought they did a pretty amazingjob making the book come to life. Some of the downfalls I think werethe tree climbing, I mean come on people, its basically crystal clearthat for certain parts they pretty much animated Kristen and Rob. Iloved the chemistry between the couples in the movie, and I thoughtKristen and Rob got Edward and Bella exactly right.Another bummer in the movie would be how nervous Kristen made Bellaanother time. Yes, she did an amazing job, but the stuttering got on mynerves a bit. If you love the books, and even if you don't, you willmost likely love this movie!
Walking into the theater was one of the scariest moments for me. Seeinghow the Harry Potter movies have developed and apparently deviated fromthe book (according to my furious father), I was so afraid that thiswas just going to be some fluffy teenage angst movie with the onlysimilarities to the book that inspired it being the title slapped on itand characters with similar names to the characters in the books...And luckily, that wasn't the case. Catherine Hardwicke and MelissaRosenberg did an excellent job of translating the essence of the firstbook in the Twilight saga from book to film. Without deviating from thebook too much (at least not noticeably enough), they captured visuallywhat Stephenie Meyer captured through written word. I thought both Kristen Stewart (Bella) and Rob Pattinson (Edward) didgreat jobs at portraying not only their characters, but the intenselyemotional relationship between the 'star-cross'd' lovers. All thesupporting cast members, the Cullens and Bella's school friends, weregreat; in character and spot-on every time. I was especially impressedwith Jasper (Jackson Rathbone)'s performance, portraying the restraintand struggle without making it seem overdone and over the top. My favorite scene was the baseball scene. It was EXACTLY how I picturedit while I read the book. Even better, was the energy of the wholescene was hyped up with Muse's "Supermassive Black Hole" playing in thebackground... What I didn't expect was how hilarious the entire movie ended up being!In a (negative) review of Twilight I read in my newspaper, it said that"the witty banter between Edward and Bella about their respectiveimmortality and humanity is completely lost and all that's left is aslog of teenage angst." HOW WRONG THEY WERE! Kristen Stewart and RobPattinson deliver the funny and awkward lines with perfect timing..."Edward/Rob: I just told you that I read minds, and you think there'ssomething wrong with *you*?!?" I thought it was hilarious. And who could forget Charlie (Billy Burke), sweet, protective,Charlie?! From the first time you see him driving Bella home from theairport, awkwardly and stealthily glancing at her, looking as if he'swondering if he should say something or just stay silent, the adorableconnection between "Charlie" and daughter is made. One of the bestscenes is when Bella comes out to Charlie about her and Edward "dating"and the look on his face is priceless! "Bella/Kristen: I'm going on adate with Edward Cullen. Charlie/Billy: I thought that you weren'tinterested in any boys in town... Bella/Kristen: *pause* Well... Edwarddoesn't technically live in town. Charlie/Billy: *silent and continuesto clean shot gun* Bella/Kristen: And... he's here now to formallyintroduce himself. Charlie/Billy: Alright... *snaps shotgun shut andcocks it* Bring him in."Priceless. Just... priceless.The only reason I took 1 star off of my review is because of thespecial effects... they weren't "cheesy" like everyone complains, butthe could've been a little better, maybe with more funding. This was asurprisingly low-budget movie. Hopefully when they're filming thesecond movie for "New Moon" they'll bust out the big special effectsfor the 'werewolves' transformations, considering Stephenie Meyerdescribes it as a "pop."
I did make the mistake of reading the book first. I swore to myself ifI knew a book was being made into a movie I would wait for the movie,especially after the Harry Potter catastrophe. I spent every singlemove to busy going, "Yes, I remember that part." "Yea it happened likethat." "That's not how I pictured it looking like." And so on and soforth. That was how I spent the first viewing of Twilight. The movie,to me seemed to pass by really fast. I was able to pick up on a lot ofunderlying sub-plots but that was again because I had read the book.I was lucky enough to view it a second time with someone who had notread the book. So at the end I asked her what she thought. She felt thestory and plot were great; there were a few things she didn'tunderstand, like Alice's whole vision things. I did explain a fewconcepts behind the visions and she said it help a little to understandsome parts of the movie. It wasn't that the movie skipped over it, itwas just explained to fast and she missed it. She did love thechemistry between Bella and Edward. It kind of reminded her of Romeoand Juliet. For those who have read ALL the books they understand whythat comparison is very entertaining.So unlike other good books that are turned into movies I felt that thisone was able to hold it's own without someone having to read the book,you just need to go see it a second time, which I feel it worth themoney.
I found myself laughing through this whole entire movie. I wasn't sureif it was because of Edward sparkling in the sun, the actors having noemotion, or the blue lighting used throughout this film. It wasprobably because of all three of those reasons. When I wasn't laughingI was upset. What happened to everything we know about vampires? Yes, Iknow they are not real but I wanted a wooden stake to show up or forthe vampires to burn in the sunlight. I do not understand how so manypeople are obsessed with this movie and the books, but I personallyfelt it was a big waste of time.Twilight needs to learn from the past vampire films/T.V. shows like,Dracula, Buffy, and the Lost Boys. That keep the vampire rules, becausesparkling in the sunlight please that was just lame. The acting was infact terrible, the special effects hilarious, and the whole Twilightstory (books and movie) ridiculous! Would I recommend Twilight not evenif Edward threatened to sparkle me to death.
I'd like to write this message to tell everyone not to listen to badreviews about this film. Sure there were a few cheesy, dramatic scenes,but what do you expect? It's a teen romance, not an adult film. Foranyone that is a teenage girl or a middle-aged woman that has read thebook, you should love the movie. I saw the midnight showing last night,and it was absolutely fantastic. The lighting was perfect, the actorswere perfect, and even though the build-up time for Edward and Bella'srelationship went too fast, they had to do it. It takes a few hundredpages in the book for their relationship to develop, and they still hadother parts of the book, many parts, to put into the movie. They had tomake it simple but thorough, and they did a great job of that.Secondly, Stewart looked exactly how I pictured Bella, and she reallydid do a grade job interpreting Bella, even if her acting got a littleweird at some points. Pattinson looked fabulous, and he was mysteriousand unknown but perfect.
I have seen the movie twice before reading the four books. I liked the movie a lot - it has developed the vampire personalities into kind of "rockstar"/model-looking vampires (compare with 30 days of night which took the genre to another level with the looks). With rockstars I refer to the "pack" with James, the footage is great and it has a very romantic twitch to it - which I do believe might scare a lot of guys away considering it is a girlie movie. But I am female (42) and I loved it. I think the books are great as well, especially the 1st and the 3rd one (my daughter thinks the same). The strange thing is that when I saw it on the world premiere; in the middle of the movie, I recognized the plot so I knew what was going to happen. So I guess that I have seen a similar movie earlier (maybe based on Meyer's book as well). I don't think that the book ruins the movie - with the exception that it ruins your imagination of how they and the surroundings look. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes the passion of love including vampires and "werewolves".
I am a Twilighter so i have been waiting for this movie for about ayear. Everyone I knew expected this to be a total disaster. I preferrednot to think that it would be horrible and hoped...and i was notdisappointed! Even though they cut and added a lot of parts, i stillthoroughly enjoyed it considering i had to sit on the the stairs halfthe movie. The audience laughed, screamed at the right times, Robertwas priceless and Kristen was unexpectedly good. I suggest to anyone,whether they have read the book or not to watch this movie. Oh, and Ilaughed so hard in the scenes with Jasper...i think everyone in thetheater did too...
I really like the concept of this movie. The whole vampire themeinterests me. However, it's such a shame they handed Kristen Stewartthe role of Bella Swan, the actress who is often referred to as"stoneface" and who even received the "Stoner Award". Kristen Stewartshows about the same level of emotion in every scene she stars in,close to no emotion.This movie could have been great if the casting was done properly.Although Robert Pattinson isn't a very convincing 17 year old, the rolevampire suits him. Jackson Rathbone and Peter Facinelli are both veryconvincing vampires too, in my opinion. The rest of the cast works,although the group of "friends" Bella has are quite bad. Storywise thismovie is good, acting wise it's utterly shameful.I like the concept and i'm certainly going to check out the books, butthis movie just doesn't work for me.
Adapting a book to a movie is very difficult. If you deviate too muchfrom the story you get slammed, yet this movie tried to cram a too longbook into a movie and we lost the character development. It tried toinclude too many key book scenes while not leaving enough time to buildup the relationship between Edward and Bella. It lacked the intensityand angst of Brokeback Mountain/The Notebook. I never felt any fear ofloss or emotionally charged love.As far as the acting it was OK to me, nothing Oscar worthy but it mighthave been due to the corny dialog. Again, maybe time to deviate fromStephenie Meyer's writing. She wrote a thrilling novel, not classicliterature by any means, but the dialog didn't translate well to filmform. Kristen Stewart was right to insist on changing her lines. Shedid an admirable the job. The movie trailer didn't do her justice. WhenI first saw it I thought "Uggh, what an awful low voice and woodenactress" but once I saw the film, she did quite well. Although, she wastoo somber throughout the movie and has no comedic skills at all.Charlie, her Dad, had the most comedic lines and he played it well.Jacob Black has potential to be very funny as he was in the book. Ihope any sequel made will allow Jacob to show his funny side.I like Robert Pattinson because he is a wonderfully handsome young man.Not what I pictured when I read the story but he performed his role aswell as he could within the limits of the script. I believe or want tobelieve he has great potential to be an excellent actor. As a person, Ilove his normal bubbly self in the promotional tour. He's got an openand endearing personality that you can't help but love. I willdefinitely be interested in watching his future films and hope hecontinues his leading man roles for which he is well suited.Usually for most movies where I read the book first, I am disappointedby the movie and this is no exception. One exception is The KiteRunner. I loved the book and the movie left me transported and moved. Ihope Catherine Hardwicke will check that movie out as inspiration forany Twilight Sequels.I have no opinion on the directing since I'm not an expert on filmdirecting but I thought Catherine did a great job and hope she goes onto direct any sequels, but a better script writer is definitely needed.
I felt the movie had entertainment values, but anyone who did not readthe book can not truly understand the motivation behind it. The romancebetween Edward and Bella lacked some of the sparkling moments that weredescribed in the book. Don't get me wrong, I didn't expect the movie tobe just like the book. The movie just portrays Edward as a creeper. Themain theme of the movie is not love. The main theme is awkward.Twilight had the audience laughing at things that were not supposed tobe funny. Overall, It was worth seeing in theaters but didn't live upto the fantasy. New Moon, if they make it, should hopefully be good aswell. But hey everyone is able to have their own opinion. This has justbeen mine.
Whatever you do, stay away from this movie. I watched this with lowexpectations, but they weren't low enough, apparently. I expected thewriting of a cheesy fanfiction. I expected the acting of a kindergartenplay. I even expected a bunch of tweens squealing with joy every timethe "hero" came on screen. I still wasn't prepared. Don't get me wrong,all of those features were present in large amounts. I occasionally sawpeople in my age group watching this. There was a simple dividing linein the audience. Women loved it. This is likely because of thetransformation of vampires from legitimate movie monster to weak,subhuman toys. I want to say something nice about this movie, but Ican't. To say one positive word about this movie would be equivalent totreason. I can't describe how terrible this movie is without inventingnew words for it. The acting was asdfgds. The writing was absolutelyslacktopular.I'll define those words when the English language catches up with thispile of excrement that somebody passed off as a movie.
Don't get me wrong - this movie has its very limited good moments, suchas the occasional comedic scenes. It's also not the worst movie I'veever seen, but the good things end there.This movie had incredible potential. I read the books, was not thatimpressed, so I thought I would give the movie a chance. Believe me,this is coming from a completely unbiased point of view. In my opinion,you can't just rate a movie based on how "hot" the actor is or how"cute" a relationship is.Every scene just fell short of what you expect, and left me thinking,"Oh...I wish they would have done this instead of that..." The sceneswere choppy, and the camera was often at awkward angles. The musicoften did not match what was on the screen at all. I understand thatromances are hard to make as it is, not even mentioning adding thevampire aspect of it. But this movie evoked no emotion whatsoever. Evenas Bella lies on a hospital bed hooked up to an IV, you can't help butscoff at her cheesy, scripted lines. Everything from how the actorsdress to how they take themselves so seriously is hilarious in anunintended way. Even how the movie is colored is depressing - its likethe gray monotone of a bad horror movie. I hope the director learns herlesson and takes more time to make the next Twilight movie worthwatching, not just hoping that fans are so blind that they'll like itno matter what.Bottom line is, if you haven't read the book and aren't obsessed withthe series, my suggestion is to wait to rent it and then laugh at howbadly it was made. Or flip through some soap operas and you'll get thesame effect. I just feel sorry to the "Twirds" who went at midnight andgot this dump of a movie.I'm just excited because you can tell that they're going to make a hugeparody of it. Nudge, nudge to the makers of Epic Movie!
Your move, Anne Rice!
*May contain spoilers!!* As a Twilight fan I had very high hopes forthis movie. That being said, my first mistake was going on a Saturdaywhen all the tweens in Team Edward shirts were out. They literallysighed in unison when "Edward" appeared on screen. Anywho, I thoughtthe casting for this movie was actually very accurate as to how I sawthem in my head. Except Laurent. I guess I pictured him differently. Idid feel the entire courtship between Edward and Bella was a bit rushedand some of my more cherished lines were lost in translation. The scenein the forest where Edward appears to be TRYING to frighten Bella isvery out of place. Never in the book do I remember him flaunting howeasily he could kill her. That seemed unnecessary. Charlie was AMAZING!I love love loved him!! The relationship between Bella and him wasadorable and completely believable. Alice was charming. I loved thebaseball scene. Very graceful....Jacob was a letdown, I must say. Iguess I pictured him as a little more rough around the edges. He lookedlike a girl more than he did a boy. Also, the open hostility betweenhim and Edward at the prom was completely absent from the books so Iguess they are rushing Jacobs attitude problems to free up time for NewMoon. The entire makeup was pretty awful though. A lot like pancakebatter on their faces. And the sparkling scene was a huge let down.But, for all the things I was disappointed in, the movie was actuallyvery good. If you haven't read the books, it makes PERFECT sense. Ifyou have, you notice a lot left out. But of course, a movie is aninterpretation of a book and can never be exact. Maybe if it was a 250page soft back instead of a 600+ page NOVEL. The only unforgivablemistake I feel they made was the sparkle scene. In the novel, he firstshows Bella in that gorgeous meadow he leads her to. Not in themountains "above cloud cover" after skipping class. I feel that was areal detriment to the entire movie because later on in the second book,Bella runs into an old enemy because she was searching for this exactclearing to hold on to memories of Edward. I'm wondering how that willplay out now in New Moon. All in all, I feel I got my $8 worth. And Ihave high hopes for the next movie because I am sure writes anddirectors can learn from critics such as myself and improve.
I'd like to group it as a vampire movie, for the first 15 mins of themovie or maybe 20mins. And hardly can i go on with the movie.The male actor was like acting cool from all the beginning, seems like"am just so special, and a prince material.. and so on". I liked thegirl in other movies, such as "the fierce people", and some scene in"jumper", but i couldn't really focus on her acting skill in this one.Let's go on with the guy, he's simply showing off his special abilityin an old way, to save a girl from a car dashing around madly.(payattention: in campus). Isn't it the most dramatic way for two personsto meet/fall into each other? the difference is: the girl was stillacting cool and questionable even when the hero had saved her.. thiskind of hero i've seen since a kid, but considering today's youngpeople, this movie might also be nice to stand in difference angle tosee a love story.I couldn't tell the rest of the movie, sorry bout that.
I have to admit the movie lived up to the low expectations I had forit. How can you capture the intensity, drama, and emotion that the bookcontains, when most of that goes on in Bella's head? I thought thewriters tried too hard to include phrases from the book, but didn'tquite know how to do it. Thus, the lines seemed cheesy when delivered.Half of the actors were believable as characters from the book. Others,mainly Robert, fell flat. His gorgeous face was fine, but he didn'tshow the range of emotion to be a believable Edward. Robert was tooweak a character, especially when he talked. Some of his scenes he wasabsolutely Edward, others he was a gawky teenager trying too hard to beromantic. To give him credit though, how could anyone live up to ourexpectations of Edward from the book? I give him kudos for trying. Myfavorite scenes were when Bella and Edward were shown together in thetree while the camera panned around them. That wins for incrediblyunique setting. We didn't have to listen to strained conversation whilethe actors fumbled around. When we can see just their faces, they arevery believable. The fight scene at the end was marvelously well done.The mirrored dance studio was far more elaborate than the one Alicesees in the book, but it made for awesome special effects. With thatsaid, I wish they would have stuck to the book a bit closer throughout.Certain small details were changed for no obvious reason. For example,James is supposed to bite Bella's hand, but he bites her arm instead.Not a super big deal, but the bite has significance in the followingbooks. And how will Edward squeeze a giant king sized bed, frame andall, into his tiny bedroom when they make Eclipse? In all, the moviewas worth the money to see. And I did enjoy seeing Stephenie Meyer inthe film. She's certainly created a hit!
Some of it a little unrealistic, but will be a movie I remember in ayear. Fairly good effects, a little cheese here and there, but overallpretty original.Looking forward to part 2.other thoughts: Sci/Fi people should really like it.Characters are fairly likable (not crazy about Bella). Pretty goodcasting.Wife is a big fan, I wouldn't have probably watched it otherwise butglad I did.I liked it because I don't live too far from the area. There was somegood scenery although obviously most of it wasn't in Forks (lol).
I was absolutely shocked. The whole thing was awful! People startedleaving because the movie was so badly made. The acting was horrible!Kristen Stewart was so dramatic and over the top, she kept blinking hereyes i guess to get some kind of dramatic reaction, and I didn't knowwhether she could breath through her nose or not. Rob whoever lookedconstipated throughout the entire movie and was so awkward towatch...The camera kept zooming in then zooming out and movingaround...I can't even think of the right thing to say to this. I am soshocked i wasted my money on this. If i can save someone from spendingtheir money on that movie I will.
