Twilight

I haven't read any of the Twilight books. I was in the mood to see a movie this afternoon and wanted to see what all the hype was about.

Twilight is an action-packed, modern-day love story between a teenage girl and a vampire. Bella Swan has always been a little bit different, never caring about fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix high school. When her mother re-marries and sends Bella to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Wash., she doesn't expect much of anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen, a boy unlike any she's ever met. Edward is a vampire, but he doesn't have fangs and his family is unique in that they choose not to drink human blood. Intelligent and witty, Edward sees straight into Bella's soul. Soon, they are swept up in a passionate, thrilling and unorthodox romance. To Edward, Bella is what he has waited 90 years for--a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. But what will Edward and Bella do when a clan of new vampires--James, Laurent and Victoria--come to town and threaten to disrupt their way of life?

I'm not into vampire or teen movies but went in with an open mind ... and hated it!

It was really boring and the acting wasn't very good.

I found the vampires creepy rather than beautiful.

I couldn't wait for it to end.

It was funny hearing the response afterwards of the female teens who were in the audience saying it was amazing!

Definitely not my kind of movie.

That sucks you didn't like it. I've read the first 3 books. Loved the first one, didn't care for the other two. I would love to watch the movie but alas no one to go with. I'll wait for netlfix.

Thanks for the info about Twilight. Too Shy to Stop just published two new reviews of the film, one from a young man who didn't read the book, and one from a young woman who did. You can read Adam's review here and Samantha's review here.
