Thank Goodness for Redbox

Dear Summit Entertainment,

I understand that you wanted to make the Twilight movie as close to the book as possible.

Still, you didn’t need to leave those spaces during dialogue for Bella’s thoughts. We can’t hear them, so...thanks....but that really wasn’t necessary. Maybe you were trying to build tension... (?)...but it seriously made me want go all George Lucas on you.

“FASTER with MORE INTENSITY!”



(Surely such a plotless book could have been made into a movie UNDER two hours?!?)

Sometimes I wonder if seeing the movie first ruined the book for me...nah! :)

That's funny, I was wondering if the book ruined the movie for me....apparently not, lol. I probably could have....almost enjoyed it if I hadn't known what was going to happen next.


Edward Needs: Less make up, deeper voice, more intelligence

Bella Needs: Less depression, higher voice, occasional sped up speech!

Jasper Needs: A new look on his face (I laughed out loud almost every time I saw him!)

Rosalie Needs: to be an unearthly blonde beauty, not a pretty Hispanic girl in a wig. (I WAS okay with her acting though)


KELLIE L? You were right! AWKWARD was a great descriptor for this movie.

I was disappointed with some of the actors chosen to portray the characters; I didn't think they were the models depicted in the book. The movie is good enough, but the book is so much better!
