PostSubject: Twilight: the Movie   Mon Nov 24, 2008 9:34 pm

Just wondering if anyone has seen the movie Twilight yet? I went over the weekend, and having read the books I wasn't expecting the movie to be as good - it rarely ever is, IMO. But I thought they did a pretty good job. The cast was great, and I thought it followed the book pretty accurately for the most part, without giving away any details. Has anyone seen it or are planning to see it? What are your thoughts? Wink

I have twin 14 year old nieces who talked my sister into reading the book, who now says I just have to read it too! My sister read it in a weekend---she said she couldn't put it down! So I suppose eventually I'll be seeing this movie too! Wink My niece said that she thought the character of Edward wasn't cast right, that he's nothing like the character in the book, physically. What do you think?

My daughter, Mel who is 15, has read the first two books and waiting for the third and fourth to come out. She saw the movie Sunday night and really liked it.

My daughter is avidly awaiting the release of the movie here in Britain on 19th December. She too read the book in a weekend - the quickest, I think, she's ever read a book!

I think it's about vampires, one in particular that falls in love with a female human.

She likes books and movies about vampires, not real ones. If it were real ones she was fascinated with, I would be worried.

ROTFL That's a good point, Alice. Twilight is different because it shows vampires in a totally different way than they're usually portrayed, as far as I know. The Cullen family in the book is genuinely good, but there are also "bad" vampires in the books, and there is a theme of good vs. evil too. And their humanistic qualities are shown, too.

Amy, as far as the casting of Edward in the movie, initially I thought that too, based on his appearance alone. But I am actually re-reading the book now, and see that the casting is closer than I initially thought. I thought the same way about the actress who portrayed Bella too, but I think from reading all 4 books, I had my own images in my head of what the characters looked like - kind of the same as Little House. Just my opinion :)
