|The Saga Begins!|
Where do I even begin? I have started an undertaking of watching all three Twilight movies in one day. Back to back to back. Traveling into the world of Bella Swan and her discovering of the fact that Vampires are not only real but that they sparkle and have cool hair.
What we have here with the twilight series, both with the books and the movies, is the resurgence of Vampires into pop culture. But that is today, it's strange to think that when this movie was made it was considered to be a risk. The budget was small. No one could have predicted the phenomenon that would follow. Ok the positives. The Twilight moves stay true to the original book, which I always appreciate. There a minor changes but overall a good adaption. The soundtrack and music selection for this movie is great. It sets a great tone and one of the very few movies that I think the music enhances the movie.
Now the bad and here comes wrath of junior high girls everywhere. The acting is the worst part of this movie. The two leads Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are just not good in this movie. I do not know how people can tolerate them. It's almost comical how many different ways that Edward and Bella can just sit and emote sadness. It's such a distraction to me. I'm interested to see if they improve over the next two movies. But as far this one it's subpar. The real exception is Billy Burke who plays Bella’s dad Charlie. He was great, spot on.
Final Verdict: As of right now not worth owning but then again I'm not their target audience.
-Author of the books Stephenie Meyer makes a cameo in the diner. She orders a veggie plate
-When Edward asks Bella to come over to his house for the first time and asks Bella if is she is worried you notice Pattinson's spot on British accent.
