Twilight- the movie
That's right boys and girls, I was able to see Twilight last night at the Gateway. Sure, I had to get my tickets a few weeks ago, and even then they only had good seats in one of the 2:30 am showings (I am now at work and have been up since one... thanks Full throttle) but it was definitely worth it. I will try to give you all my best review without spoiling anything. No worries, I hate it when people ruin movies for me, so I wouldn't do that, not that I am going to give away any plot spoilers to anyone who has read the book. When it comes to that I can say they did a great job of keeping all the main plot points intact. Yes, they had to cut some of it down, and they meshed some parts together into one, but I didn't feel like I was being cheated at all. They really did a great job of putting an entire book into a two hour movie. I thought all the characters were really well cast, even Bella who I was not so sure about. I honestly think that any fan of the books will enjoy the movie a lot if they go in to it knowing that it's going to have spots taken out entirely, and that there are going to be some changes. They still kept very true the heart of the story, and did a really great job of visualizing such a great book. Enjoy!
