Twilight

Never read the book so i couldnt compare. The movie didnt make me want to read the book either.

This Movie was OK

I'm not really a fan of vampires and this movie didn't make me a fan. Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) scared me. She didn't show much emotion throughout the movie, which made me suspect that she's a robot. Edward Cullen is just creepy. That is all I have to say about this movie.

Funny

I hate to write another bad review of this series, so I'll try to be more positive on this one. I think it has really good cinematography and the soundtrack is edgier than expected. And it has its own humor to it if you're looking to just laugh at something incredibly cheesy, in my opinion. But it's still a disturbing "love" story with zero respect for its own female protagonist.

A Fan

As an adult watching this movie I was transported back to high school and teenage angst. I could relate to Bella's character. She was withdrawn and moody and understandably so. Not knowing how she fit in to this new world she is drawn to another withdrawn and moody character, Edward. Complications arise, as expected. Enjoyed watching with my daughter. The movie gave us much to talk about.

OK

The movie was OK. The book is much better. One of the biggest problems is the acting.

Awesome Movie

This movie is very romantic, but I liked it very much, because
the book was pretty addictive and I'm not sure, but I was just DRAWN
to the movie.. How come EVERYBODY who tagged here all hated it?
I'm pretty sure everybody here just tagged cause they want to get some
points for their summer games and didn't care about wat they said.
I REALLY ENJOYED THIS MOVIE AND I RECOMMEND IT TO YOU
AND YOU SHOULD WATCH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Overrated

If you want mind-numbing entertainment, go ahead and watch it. But be warned, the acting (especially by Stewart) is bad. She actually ruined the movie for me. I would have mildly liked the movie if it would not have been for her horrible acting. Other than that, vampires? Meh. It's just an overrated high school love story.

it's fine...

the love story harken back days gone as unfolds I've take only as a single film & it's a style to it enjoyable, but dialog involved fore shadows most serious issue the series this tempting usually uplifting subject matter such as love once again, but for physical & implied material wealth you'll blah or it's basis against many hazard!

bull

this movie is crap

Improves upon the book, IMO

I am not exactly the target audience for this movie or the book it is based on, but I enjoyed both. I feel the movie improved upon the book, if only because it had to cut down the bickering between Bella and Edward to fit in the allotted time. A fun bit of fluff with a side of eye candy.

Enjoyable Movie

I thought this movie was entertaining. I think the book was better, but they did a good job following the book. It would have been nice to have more of the book included in the movie, but to keep it from getting too long they did a good job.

what joy thinks

this movie was good. it made me want to see the rest of the series

Baseball

I like the baseball scene becuase it was so intense and interesing!

Bad

Totally predictable, poorly executed, and based on a mediocre book, Twilight the movie is your typical heart-throb movie. If you want a really good series about vampires, watch Hellsing, not this junk.

Twilight (movie)

I read all four books before watching the movie. The movie was good, but at times it was a little boring because there was only soft music and talking. I think that the book was so long that in the movie, they couldn't add enough details. Basically it was a good movie. And I highly recommend the books to anyone who wants a wonderful adventure.

From a Non Fantasy Lover

I never read the book and put off seeing the movie for quite awhile, even after friends who know my tastes suggested it to me. Well, I finally watched it and I loved it. The "making of" documentary is a huge bonus as well, and after watching it I wanted to watch the movie again. I enjoy movies that are fun and light, and while there certainly are some dark moments, overall this was the perfect movie for me. And while I often get accused of having tastes that are too "girly" I have male friends who liked it just as much!
