Whooo, may first movie review through bloggage!
I'm going to start off a with the much hyped about movie Twilight. I've heard many
odd tales about how awesome Twilight is and i've been getting many recommendations
from various randoms to go see it over the past few weeks. Today I finally got a
Now initially, I thought that Twilight would be overated and a bad movie. Later on I
began to think that maybe i'm being a bit hard on Twilight (what judgeing it before
watching it) and I figured, it's a VAMPIRE story it shouldn't be that bad right?
However not only was I right about it being a terrible overrated movie, but it was
WORSE then what I expected it to be. The first hour was like torture, basically all
at that happened was Bella got a highschool crush on Edward and wanted to "figure him
out" by staring at him/thinking about him 24/7. The 2nd hour was slightly more
tolerable with the action sequences. But still extremely medicore
The dialog was the worst I think i've ever heard in a movie. I found myself shaking
my head in disbelief at it's sheer stupidity of what these characters were saying
many times throughout this film. Espically at the scenes that were attempting to
"humor" me. The two lead actors (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson) had good
chemisty. But did not play into there characters personas (Kristen often appering
indifferent/bored in the entirety of the movie)
In addition, there was very little plot to the movie itself. The climax being when
the "Nomadic" vamps try and hunt down Bella because she has this somehow amazing
herion-like blood and is somehow special in ways that are completey unexplained in
Oh and of course Bella and Edward get there happy little ending...or do they? Damn
this chick fell for this dude hard and fast. I'm just like "wtf?" through all of it.
They hardly bonded yet suddenly there smitten in love with eachother? The character
devolpment was poor...piss poor. The only character that any depth at all/didn't
annoy the fuck outta me was that blonde Cullen chick who didn't want Bella in her
"family"- she's the only one who didn't seem to have a one-dimensional personallity
like the rest of them (I could 2 sworn to of the Cullen lads were pretty much Props.
They got very little/no dialog whatsoever. Not that i'd care about them anyways)
In conculsion: What they did was suck everything that was cool about vampires and
pussed it up. There was no deep seated "mystery" to the Cullens. Right from the
beginning you could tell they were vampires. The movie was pure cheese. It could of
had potential to be a very dark deep seated romantic movie (something I could enjoy)
but instead of moving/entertaining me. I sat there the whole time thinking: "i'm
gonna walk out, any minute now. I'm gonna do it" but, out of courtesy for my cousin I
sat firmly (but umcomfortably seated) watching this disaster of a film.
