On Friday, November 21st I was able to go to Twilight with Britt, Rochelle, Jordan, Salena, & Rochelle's Mom (sorry Mom, your name has escaped me). We decided to see the 9:30 movie. We met each other in Gunnison at 9:00 & there was already a giant line outside the theatre & the foyer was jam packed. Needless to say, we were some of the fortunate ones who were able to wait OUTSIDE in the chilly, cold weather. I really don't think any of us cared much because we were all so excited to be there. Before I left, I told Braydan that I hadn't been this excited about something so silly in a very, very long time. I compared it to that feeling I used to get when Braydan & I were first dating. You know what I'm talking about, that can't wipe the huge grin off your face, heart pumping, on the brink of laughter at any given second, happy feeling. That is exactly how I felt (ridiculous, I know). I really kept thinking, "It's just a movie Mist, stop it." The wait was finally over & they started letting us OUTSIDERS in, yay!!! Of course we rushed in & found us some pretty decent seats in the the center rows, about 3/4 of the way back. When the movie started everyone cheered, literally. It was so fun! Then it started. I loved it...at first. But as the movie progressed I just kept thinking, "Where are all the details? What about the love story?" The disappointment was beginning to settle in but then I immediately thought, "The movie is NEVER as good as the book silly!" That is sooooo true. After that, I began to love it again.
So my final analysis is this...
a) I really liked the movie.
b) The characters did an awesome job.
c) I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked Edward. All along, I've thought he needed to be much more (for lack of a better word) beautiful.
d) For a low budget film, I thought they did a great job. I LOVED the landscapes, gorgeous!!!
e) It was sssooooooooo VAGUE (again, for lack of a better word)!!!
I guess I was longing for that intensity that is found in the books. Oh well, I still loved it! I know I will own it & watch it many more times.
