I got to go see Twilight last night and I actually liked it! :) In fact, I can't wait until I can go and see it again! Sort of lower-budget than I had expected, but what can you expect from a newer director and a smaller production company? I think they did a pretty good job considering that they were trying to fit 498 pages worth of content into a 2-hour time slot. The wierdest thing for me was not hearing Bella's thoughts and instead watching things happen without the narration that you get in the book--so it seemed a little lacking to me because of that. All in all, I recommend it. The baseball game is really cool, and of course the ballet studio scene is pretty realistic. I even will applaud them for the job they did when Edward shows Bella what he looks like in the sunlight. Rob Pattinson as Edward wasn't as bad as some people made him out to be, and I think he and Kristen Stewart did quite well portraying our favorite characters. Some stuff was downright corny (like Carlisle's make-up job and some flashbacks we see), but I guess you even get some of that in the book when I really think about it. I definitely got a lot of laughs out of it, but there were also times where I was on the edge of my seat. Not all that I had hoped for, but I went into it knowing it could never be as good as the book, and I really wasn't disappointed!
