*So I just got back from watching the movie, Twilight. I thought I would write a review while everything is fresh in my mind. What did I think? Hmmmm, I would have to give it a 5 out of ten. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't spectacular.
Warning: There are some SPOILERS.
*Things I thought were awesome-
-the actor who portrayed Charlie did an excellent job
-the scene where Bella leaves Charlie is probably the most emotional
- jessica stanley was good
-I liked the Cullens. Their part in the movie made it exciting.
-the baseball scene was wicked cool. Very entertaining, but wished it was longer
-the fight scene was cool, wished it was a little bit longer, but the whole scene was fun
-overall the cinematography was good. showed the beauty of that area
-the look on Jaspar's face when Edward saves bella from the crashing van.
-there was some good humor in the film, funny lines
-the soundtrack-the various artists' songs added to the movie
-Bella's Lullaby-very pretty melody
*Things that could be better
-the portrayal of Edward (the way Edward was portrayed was awkward. They made Edward kind of seem dumb at first and they tried to portray Edward's tension too much on screen like how he considers himself a monster. It seemed it little over the top. The story is very internal and trying to externalize the character's thoughts is hard.
-cheesy lines. I know there are defnitely some cheesy lines in the book, but would someone really say some of these things.
-the pacing-some scenes went really fast, too fast like the scenes with the Cullens and then some were really slow
-the biology scene-seriously the big fan and edward twitching and covering his nose. I know they were trying to make it visible to non-twilight fans that edward was addicted to her scent, but doing that made the scene unintentionally funny.
-overacting-trying to be a vampire when you are really human was a little bit visible in the movie
-for the amount of publicity and promoting/interviews with all the cast of the Cullen's you would think they would be in the movie a little bit more. They had small parts.
-the special effects-trying to make the vampires really fast was hard to do so that part made it a little cheesy. Its a low budget film so u can't expect perfect special effects.
-the emo score- the lullaby incorporated in the soundtrack was good, but the rest was a little cheesy.
-carlisle's chalk white makeup-why was his so white? He may be immortal, but try and not make him look dead. what were the makeup people thinking?
*Overall, I thought this was OK considering the low budget and a first of a series. I just wished they showed more of the other vampires. I watched it the second time and my perception of the movie is a little harsher. It got cheesier.
