We went and saw Twilight again. I have to say I still love it. I so enjoy the characters in this book. I am a little amused by the reviews I am reading online. I just don't think they get it. First of all, the budget was very small for making this movie. It was not full of special effects and expensive technology. But still conveyed the story very well in my opinion.
Second it was not full of well known actors, but relatively unknowns. For me I liked this, I found it much easier to relate them to their characters.
Third, I enjoyed the little bits of humor, suspense, anxiety, self-suffering that the movie did offer.
Sure there were parts that were a not completely true to the book, but not so far off it aggravated me. Then I also felt like we got to know Charlie a little better in the movie than in the book. At first when I saw the cast announcements (before the movie came out) I was a little concerned Rob Pattinson could not live up to Edward. I was happy it didn't turn out that way at all. I could not imagine anyone else playing Edward now. He totally became Edward. I really don't want to wait months for it to come out on DVD, so I am contemplating going to see it again one more time in the theatre. Now we have to wait till 2010 before New Moon comes out. I think this is going to be sheer torture. Oh and Stephanie, thank you so much for "Twilight, the score" soundtrack. I am totally loving it. I can close my eyes and be back at the movies:)
In other news, Bre and I put up the Christmas tree yesterday. We did not get it decorated so that is what we will be doing tomorrow after school and work. I will post some pictures after we finish. I am so not prepared but here comes December.
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and enjoyed. It was so nice to see our family even if it was a short visit. I am so grateful for all the special people in my life.
