Twilight the movie

Am I the only one that thought that the movie was awful?  I LOVED the books.  I read all four in four days.  I went to see the movie and it was a huge let down.  I thought it was corny.  I know that books are ALWAYS better than the movies but I thought that this was downright terrible.  Maybe it is just me because everyone else seemed to love it!

Yeah the movie was definitely a let down. I LOVED the books and they had more creative power behind them. More detail and more spunk between Edward and Bella. I have seen the movie like 8 times and I do like the movie for different reason. The first is Edward himself! He is so HOT!! But it is a little bit different storyline but not a bad one. You just can't go to the theatre expecting to see the book brought to life. I like the Baseball scene too! Jasper is hot in that scene more than anything else...he is my close 2nd. I can pick scenes that I liked but overall I separate the two- book and movie. They are not the same story and I guess I just segragate them into different categories

Yes, Edward is very hot!!!!  I guess you just can't capture what Edward and Bella have in the book in a movie.  I guess that they are making a second movie (or so I heard) and I can only imagine that will be difficult to do because of the storyline.

i thought they did a terrible job casting bella, her looks were okay but i never felt she was in love with edward during the movie.and i thought it was weird that rosalie had more lines than alice.

My friend is crazy into all that stuff. She loved the movie i think she saw it like 3 times. I'm just not into it....its too lovey dovey pansy vampireish stuff.  I'm into ripping the throat out of some dude vampire book.

Yep.  It seemed so forced and fake.  I think she is a terrible actress, but that is just my opinion!

Honestly, the movie sucked it was like a 'B' movie chick flick.  If there had been one more cutesy cuddle together while sappy music plays scene I would have gagged.

i didn't like the movie either.  i have seen kristen stewarts other stuff and twilight was definitely not her best.  but all the actors had bad lines imo.  i think the writer was most to blame.

LOL!!!!!!  Did you read the book?  I didn't think the book was like that at all!  I thought that the movie sucked, too!  And they did do an awful job with music....oh well!
