Did anyone actually like the Twilight movie?

I read the books because I loved the artistic view point of the movie. I also think that the "bad acting" was just a good demonstration of the awkwardness expressed in the books.

  • I love the movie and the books for different reasons. Everyone I know who read the books first hated the movie. They said it was too different. They are going to be different because they are too different forms of media. I have yet to read a book and watch the movie based on the book and have them be the same. The books are going to have things the movies don't. I still want to see whatever movies they make from the books.

  • I didn't go to see the movie because I read the book first,--- one of the worst books I'd ever read. I couldn't get any farther than the first chapter.

  • i liked the movie but feel that the book is much better. i think both would have been great on their own (just a book or just a movie) but basing it off a book that came out so recently, with how good some books turned movies have turned out lately (nicholas sparks books, marley and me etc...) that it was a disappointment to people expecting that kind of change to movie.

  • Not really. It seemed too green and dark and so much was left out of it. I am glad I (shhhhhh) watched it on imstead of going out to see it. And my husband laughed his butt off at Edward when he said he was the most dangerous predator on the planet. To this day if I mention that, he chuckles. I think New Moon is going to be a lot better since there is a bigger budget and different director.

  • I have and read all of the books so when the movie came out I was like YES! I love the movie but I prefer books any day! They give SO much more detail in books that has to be left out due to time limits in the movies.
