So, as many of y'all know, I love to read. It has always been hard for me to see a movie after I read the book because the movie is usually never as good as the book. The only exception so far has been the Harry Potter movies. They are awesome! So, a group of us went to see the long awaited Twilight. Now, I loved, loved the books. But, I kind of knew that I shouldn't get my hopes up. So, onto the movie. I honestly have to say that during the first part of the movie I was ready to get up and walk out. In my opinion, the movie started out slow. Also, in the first part of the movie I felt like they didn't really stick to the book too much and that drives me crazy!!! Now, onto the Cullens. When I first saw them, it was so obvious that they were vampires because their faces were so WHITE! I think the worst part about seeing a movie after you read the book is you have already decided in your mind about what the characters look like and then when you actually "see" them it kind of disappoints you. Well, that was me last night. Especially with Jasper. He was just weird! The second half was much better. It followed the book better and wasn't as slow as the beginning. I loved how they left it open for another movie. So, all in all, an OK movie and it has definitely made me want to reread my Harry Potter books before the new movie comes out!
