Twilight

Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and was directed by Catherine Hardwicke. It has many supporting actors including Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene. The screenplay was written by Melissa Rosenberg and based on the book by Stephenie Meyer.

The plot consists of a young girl, Bella Swan, that moves to the small town of Forks, Washington. She finds mystery in the form of Edward Cullen and is instantly in love. Edward finally decides he can’t stay away from her, and Bella finds out his secret, he’s a vampire. Just as things are going great, they meet James, a sadistic vampire that wants Bella’s blood. Will Edward be able to stop him or will James kill Bella? The game begins.

I thought the relationship between Edward and Bella could have been brought along better. In the movie it’s pretty much, they meet, Edward saves Bella, they talk a couple of times, he saves her again, she finds out he’s a vampire, they fall in love. Instead of spending so much time with the hunting part of the movie, they should have spent it on developing the relationship between these two characters.

The acting in this movie is a lot better than what people gave it credit for. This being Rob and Kristen’s first major motion picture, I thought they did incredibly well. The book goes into such detail of the characteristics of the characters, that it would be hard to display that on the big screen. And, you can just feel the chemistry these two actor’s have with each other.

All-in-all a good movie worth seeing.

  1. My fiancee and I saw this in theatres and I thought it was just “ok” when I saw it then, We watched it on Blu-Ray as soon as it was released and the film actually got better and I actually appreciated Hardwicke’s direction more. Also, the cinematography stood out a lot more. It was a weird thing; a movie being better at home than in a theatre. If anyone didn’t care for the movie, I highly suggest giving it a second shot on DVD or Blu-Ray.

  2. I’ve given the movie 2nd, 3rd and 4th shots and still it fails to impress. I really like the books, and was more impressed than I’d expected to be by the New Moon movie. But, no matter how many times I watch it or how many Twilight fans tell me it’s brilliant, I just do’t see it.
