dear twilight the movie,
i finally saw you! and i LOVED you!
yes, i had my issues with you… how rushed bella and edward’s relationship was, (although i did feel it was rushed in the book too), how you could have done so much more with edward’s vampire abilities and attributes, how choppy the story was and how you just threw so many parts of the book randomly into the movie… and overall could have adapted the screenplay much better and told the story in a more cohesive manner….
but you know what? i didn’t care. i enjoyed myself the entire time and was excited to finally see the story and characters in my head… in real life. well, in movie life.
of course, the casting of edward and bella were pretty much perfect. also perfect? JESSICA. omg, like, omg so totally perfect!! *giggle* i also fell in love with alice and wish i could throw a baseball as gracefully as she. surprisingly, i found mike endearing and kinda funny (i found him pretty annoying in the book). i was also surprised at how disappointed i was with jacob. i guess i like him better in my head…my jacob. and rosalie was not the drop dead gorgeous model she could/should have been. oh, and i did not realize how ethnically diverse Forks high school is? i mean, come on now… but actually, i’m glad that you decided to use diversity (hollywood is always lacking). i do have one question though…. eric? really?
oh, and the song choices! its like you were speaking right to my heart. and i read somewhere that kristen stewart was the one who chose the iron and wine song for the ending of the movie. mmm…yes. i had such a good time and i will definitely watch you again. i am excited for what you will do with the sequel… can’t wait.
edward’s one and only (Charissa)
*note from editor: I was trying to find a great video for the end of this post, and I got really distracted looking at vids of the kissing scene. I was so annoyed b/c most of them were from the trailer (why didn’t any little girls use their iphones to record THAT scene in the theater?) and to the song “Kiss me” by Sixpence none the Richer… but I found this. And at first I laughed, then I swooned… sigh
