A story of Edward the vampire and the humane Bella. Mixed reactions were present, either loving the movie or dreading it. Edward Cullen's performance felt dry, Kristen Stewart's display was decent and the cast did well. I enjoyed the Cullen more than the main protagonists. The basis of their love seemed shallow and the action was just there to remove the boredom. Some of the cinematography was pleasant, if only the script was improved. There were entertaining moments, the director could have improved Bella and Edwards foundation for love. The sequels had more action and sense, unfortunately, my feelings for this film is in between.

Doesn't work as a romance, horror film, or thriller. The characters are mainly pedestrian, mostly staring at each other in faux emotion. Does nothing to enhance the mythology of vampires or bring anything original to the table. In essence, boring.

Unnecessary and generic.

I hate this movie not because I am a man or because I have two well-functioning brain halves, but because it's just BAD filmmaking.

There are so many reasons to hate this movie. It has gained notoriety as being the most hated movie by boys and most loved by girls (not all).
If you're going to make a romance, do it right. Nobody wants to see a bad romance, it's just awkward.
The actors in this film have zero chemistry. I cannot buy into the fact that Bella and Edward are in love. They look more afraid of each other than soul mates.
Vampires are a very good genre for a film. A vampire romance has been done before by Francis Ford Coppola, showing his take on Dracula in his eponymous 1992 film.
This movie leaves a stain on that genre by introducing the most wooden actor ever to play so...

I Heard the Book Was Better...

Well, after being forced reluctantly by some friends into watching this movie, I gave in. It might effect the review, the fact that I was surrounded by oggling, drooling, dumb-founded fangirls through-out the whole movie that is. But I'll give you my opinions anyway.
Now, I have never been a fan of the books, I noticed the book of this came out years back, and now the fangirls have only just been catching on. I myself, have always read books such as 'I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, Dexter, Shogun, and the Resident Evil series' and so, I think you may get it when I say 'Twilight' isn't really my thing. So, I can't help but review the movie without help from knowing every fact from the book. Sorry.
So anyway, the movie starts with us meeting Bella, played by Kristen Stewart, she move...

Twilight, a Mr. E Movie Review

Twilight, a Mr. E Movie Review

(Run time: 122 min. - Directed by: Catherine Hardwicke - Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner)

I told myself 1. I wasn't going to ever watch Twilight the movie and thus 2. I would never have to review Twilight the movie. BUT, after hanging with a group of my friends, most of which happen to be girls that night, they insisted, know I wrote reviews for movies, I see it after they found out I was the only one not to see it. I tried to resist my prejudices about the films genre that was focused on tween girls but they over powered me. Now, after seeing the movie I have to admit...I liked it.

The story is about a girl named Bella, played by Kristen Stewart, who moves to Forks, Washington to live with her Dad. There she meets Edward...

Twilight, twilight, I was a lottle bored, this movie to me was pumped up to much. It was an ok movie, I couldn;t watch it twice. It is the same ole kinda vampire fall in love story with a mortal person. The only good thing was it was a modern day story and setting. There were really no action and fighting scenes. I really didn't like it. I will give it a 2/5. But again that's just my opinion. you will probably be better off reading the book.

wow, its kind of depressing that so many people are lowering their standards nowadays.
i mean, really?
like, really? people actually like those books, AND that stupid movie?
i just dont get it, are people really that boring and lonely?
i could understand it if the book was well written, or if their was great acting/ writing/ directing/ anything... but their wasnt.
& i think its safe to say that the little girl in Let The Right One In could TOTALLY kick all the vamps/ werewolfs/ d-bags from twilight's but.

I'm surprised no one's written anything since last year about this movie. LOVED IT! Seen it too many times already. Read all the books in the series & am excited to see the next ones on the big screen. Not too sure if the directors will do it justice, but it's nice to see it go from book to screen. There are some scenes in the book that I wished had been put in the movie & then there are some scenes in the movie that I liked better than in the book. But overall, great movie & can't wait for the DVD.

If you haven't read the book, you probably will think the movie is cheesy and over dramatic.
