Breakin' all the rules – My First Time

Every ticket comes with a free pair of earplugs

Dear LTT folks-

When I first saw Twilight in the movie theaters, it was the Saturday (22nd) after it came out. I was trying to wait till I went home for Thanksgiving so I could beg my mom and cousin (lilcrazycow) to go with me. But I woke up that morning and couldn’t take it anymore, all I could think about was Twilight all day, every day. So I gave in and went by myself. This was before I knew about a million Twilight fans and my only other Twilight contact in LA was my coworker who first lent me the book. I showed up at the earliest screening expecting to sit in an empty theater by myself and have my personal Twilight moment.

Nope, WRONG! I was packed in with all the Twi-hards and the Twi-moms and everyone they dragged along. I knew the second the lights dimmed and people started screaming at every little thing: the title logo, the first time Bella was on screen, the first time the Cullens walk in, heck when ANY character walked in they screamed, I knew this thing called Twilight was something big.

I’m not gonna lie, the beginning was rocky for me… the dialogue seemed a bit flat, Kristen was boring to me, it felt rushed and it was getting awkward but then THIS happened…

and I knew that I would forever love this movie saga… however cheesy, and cheap it looked. I couldn’t resist Edward’s shit-eating grin or those ray bans, or how perfectly the song worked at that moment, or how I felt like I totally wanted to be Bella. Then he delivers the line “…breaking all the rules now anyway… since I’m going to hell…” and I was sold. I had broken all the rules of being a hip 20 something, I liked Twilight, I was about to start a blog about it and I didn’t care I was “going to hell” so might as well enjoy it.

And here we are now 4 months after the movie was released, a week after the DVD and now 8 months out from the next movie and I can’t help but think, what will that first time be like? What scene will be the one to grab me like this one did?

Only time will tell.

    I have accidently watched the first Twilight movie on June 2010 (a re-run on StarMovie channel). Before this, I never bother to watch it, never knew about the book either. I heard about it (the title) and I thought this is just some cheesy movie about Vampire made for teens ( I quickly thought about the Buffy series at that time, and I don’t like Buffy at all!!!) . So, why bother, since I already have Harry Potter (Yes, I am 30++ but I prefer Harry Porter than Lord of the Rings). But, because on that specific night, I got nothing better to watch, so I just watch this movie. So there I was, watching the opening… hmm..ok..like the background music, i don’t really care about the actress playing Bella cuz I think I’ve seen her in Zathura. And then, the first cafe scene, still not amuse, until the part where Edward stared at Bella… I was suddenly captivated by those eyes.. OMG… I never thought that I will be like a heroin-addict right now just because of those pair of eyes… So, yes definitely my favourite scene, the staring eyes… and then the mouth…. I suddenly feel like 16 again.. so because I am already addicted, I went to a ‘pirate’ shop the next day and get the ‘New Moon’ DVD… and the week after, went to watch Eclipse (after 2 hours of driving because I live in a place where there is no movie theatre) and before I went home after the movie, I bought the books – No 1 and 4 and finished reading them in 3 days… and now I am still having a hangover… Wish I had never looked at those eyes of Rob Pattinson… stupid, stupid me…Arghhhh!!!!

    I still think the first movie is the best one, because of the songs and music… And I like Linkin PArk… hehehe..
