The Movie and Other Twilight Ramblings

My Twilight Story....

In 2005 I had just finished reading Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and the Mayfair Witches, and need something more to read. So, I went in search of more vampire related novels. I did a search on Amazon where I found a great number of books to read, among them Twilight. Once It arrived, the book sat on my shelf for a good while. I finally got around to reading it February 2006. By the second chapter I was hooked, I had a hard time putting it down. I couldn't believe how good it was and how easily I was sucked into the story. Immediatley after finishing it, I read it again. I have read it several times since... I don't dare open my hardcover of Twilight, I'm afraid it will fall apart. LOL!

The Movie... [no spoilers]

When I heard they were doing a Twilight movie I was very hesitant at first. I thought "oh god they are gonna ruin it" cause well Hollywood has gotten it wrong many other times. But then the trailers started coming out, they were just brilliant. That's when I started getting my hopes up thinking, maybe they got it right this time. From then on I couldn't wait to see this film.

I just got back from seeing the film. Now I don't want to go all fangirl... but that was just so frikkin awesome. I loved every mintue of it. The did change a few things, but they were minor. For me it was perfect, I wasn't disappointed at all. They did an amazing job. I loved the instrumental background music.


Most know this already, but on November 22nd Summit Entertainment announced they are moving forward with the production of New Moon.

  1. I feel so left out!!!! I gotta get my butt to the theater to see it already!
    I'm happy you loved it :)

  2. I knew you'd like it :)! I think going from book to movie, they did an awesome job! Not everything can be exactly the same, but they did a great job keeping it as close to the book as possible.

    What did you think of the Harry Potter preview? Didn't that look totally awesome on the big screen?? I'm so psyched to see that movie, but sad also because of what happens at the end.

  3. I went over the weekend to see it. I hadn't read the books, so I had no expectations, and I actually liked it quite a bit. It was a little cheesy, but overall pretty entertaining.

    Now I'm reading the first book, and I'm liking it a lot, and thought the movie was pretty accurate, at least as much as it could be.

    The HP trailer was fab.

  4. The did an amazing job. I was highly impressed. Can't wait for the dvd to come out. LOL!

    I love loved the HP trailer. I didn't realize I was going through Harry Potter withdrawls unitl I seen it. LOL! I can't wait to go see. Sucks that we have to wait until July to do so.

    They also preview a movie called "Push" looks like it might be good too.

  5. Twilight is the book that brought me to adult paranormal romance over two years ago... and I love the series very much, Twilight being my favorite. But I was really disappointed with the movie. Maybe when I see it again on DVD I'll like it more.

  6. That's too bad, hopefully you'll like it when you watch the dvd.

  7. I absolutely love the experience of watching movies in theaters; it is just so much fun! But, which do you like better: the books? Or the movies? In my opinion, the books were so much better: they had depth in it...they were fun to read. I was a little disappointed with the movies, but I still get a thrill when watching them. What do you think about Harry Potter? They are similar in the way that they are both fantasy novels turned into movies, but so different. If you have a chance, check out my blog about Harry Potter. I will be talking about how it has changed my life and I feel like you can relate with it a lot. Nice piece! I really enjoyed it! http://blogs.micds.org/mhabib/tag/nonfiction/
