Twilight Movie

Russell and I went to see Twilight saturday morning with 2 other couples from our ward/apartment complex.  

Now the 4 of us who had read the books (Me, Russell, Christy, and Lisa) loved the movie, and the other 2 (Ben & Justin) thought it was entertaining, but cheesy and really rushed.  I would have to agree with them that the movie felt rushed.  There just wasn't enough time to get all the great scenes from the book in there!  There were some pretty cheesy parts, but I didn't mind them at all.  Justin made the point that it seemed they made the movie for people who read the book, and I think he is right there.  
My only real disappointment was that they didn't have the part where Bella gets woozy at the sight of blood in biology class and Edward takes her to the nurse.  That is one of my favorite parts of the whole Twilight series because it helps develop their relationship and it shows the humorous side of each of them, especially Edward.
I thought all the Cullens were pretty close to perfect (especially the good Dr.- hubba hubba)
So, except for that one part I was waiting for that never happened, I thought the movie was pretty darn good.  Can't wait for the next one!

Totally Agree! I had forgotten about the biology blood part until my sis in law reminded me about that and then I was bummed :) But all in all I enjoyed it!

I agree! Reed and I just got back from the movie and we both thought it was really well done! I really enjoyed it! It had a lot more humor in it than I thought there would be, but that made it all the better! :)
