…feeling the need to read

Get Thee to a Theatre!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on November 29, 2008


If you haven’t seen Twilight yet, you simply must rush out and see it NOW! The movie was better than I expected, as I am rarely pleased with movies based on my favorite books. They never quite live up to the original. In the case of Twilight, though, the script was true to the novel in virtually every detail, so if you loved the book, you’ll adore the movie. Despite some negative reviews from those who have not read the Twilight series, the movie did what it was supposed to do–it transferred the book into film beautifully, including the characters. Prior to seeing the movie, I was not sure I “bought” Robert Pattinson as Edward, although Kristen Stewart seemed perfect as Bella from the start. After seeing the movie, however, Robert Pattinson is Edward. He was as gorgeous as Bella described him in the book; even though I’m old enough to be his mother, I could still detect the hotness. Peter Facinelli was a bit too pale as Carlisle–maybe if his hair hadn’t been so white, too–he was like looking at a blizzard. Carlisle’s albino-ness aside, the movie features breathtakingly beautiful scenes of the Pacific Northwest and an honest interpretation of the book that will have Stephenie Meyer’s fans clamoring for the release of New Moon. Oh, didn’t I tell you? Summit Entertainment, the producers of Twilight, announced this week that they are planning a movie based on New Moon. No release date has been set. So we still have something left to live for, Twilight fans!
