Twilight...


So, I went with Carly and Becky to Twilight on Friday night! All the anticipation... I actually really enjoyed it! Now, of course, after reading the book like 5 or 6 times, I knew it pretty well. So, I knew before hand that I could either pick the movie apart and ruin it for myself or I could just enjoy it for what it was worth. So, I enjoyed it.



Now, you have to know that for a book that's 500 pages long, to put it in a 2 hr. movie is going to be pretty darn difficult. So, OBVIOUSLY they are going to leave a lot out, and change quite a bit to make it work. I was actually surprised how much was the same.

Now, about the characters. Everyone pictures the characters in their own way. So, I will say that I was a little nervous about some, (Charlie, Charlile, Esme, Rosalie, Bella, & Jasper) but most grew on me... well all but Rosalie. Now, don't get me wrong, she's still really pretty, but she just talked a little too much. She would have done better to just keep her mouth shut and be ornery. Also, the white makeup was a little extreme at times. But, all in all I was really entertained and really liked it. Besides, even if it sucked we would have had a blast!

I liked it too! I was pleasantly surprised because I was a little nervous that it would suck. But I liked it!

My sis and her husband said they thought it was better than the book. That kind of surprised me. I haven't seen it yet. Hopefully all the hype doesn't make it a disappointment for me, eh?

I'm trying to remember if I already knew that you knew Carly. I'm pretty absent minded, so I'm guessing I did. I love ties between old friends and "new" friends (even though I've known you both for over 10 years (but haven't seen Carly in that same amount of time)). Tell her hello for me!
