I know I'm probably going to piss a lot of Edward
obsessed fans off with this but you know what? It's my blog and I have an opinion about this.
I like all kinds of books and movies. I'm pickier about my books than movies, but when all is said and done, if it ENTERTAINS me, I'm happy.
I, like millions of other women waaaaaayyyy out of their teen years, read the Twilight saga.
All four books.
And, it was.....eh.
The storyline has a punch but the writing was quite frankly, juvenile.
However, it IS after all, a teen book. It was not written for adults.
So, I can forgive that and say in all honesty, I was entertained by the books.
Will I consider them in my top favs?
Nope. Not even close.
I did like them enough to want to see the movie when it came out.
However, due to lack of all encompassing interest, I never saw it in the theatre. And I was fine with that.
I did buy the DVD on Saturday. But not at midnight on Friday like millions of others.
More like 8 pm on Saturday night. There were still about 100 copies in the specially made bin that was placed ever so cleverly in the junior clothing department.
I did take it home and watch it that night. Started it around 11 pm or so but had to stop it and watch the rest in the morning as I was too tired to continue.
That should tell you something right there.
As far as movies go, it was fine. Not great, not horrible.
Kristen Stewart is a horrible actress. Robert Pattinson is not hot at all. At least not in the movie. I preferred him as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter movie. There was NO emotional connection between the two. I blame Kristen for that.
They underutilized the character Jasper and the guy playing Jacob was a disappointment.
And as far as vampires go?
is NOT a vampire.
And, really, who encompasses a vampire spirit more so than the one below:
Need I say more?
