I actually really enjoyed myself, watching Twilight.
...I know, right?! I went into it expecting abject dissapointment. The previews looked corny, the posters hardly looked promising, and yet... I had a blast.
Though I would never recommend it to someone who hasn't read the book. It kind of felt almost more like a visual guide to the text, you know? Even though practically everything (with the exception of like, Charlie, and maybe Emmett) didn't look the slightest bit how I pictured it in my mind. Can anyone explain to me why I was so positive Bella and Charlie lived in a cabin?
But I really did like it. Some parts were kind of awkward, of course. I didn't really like the whole way they did the "leik zomg ur a vampire rn't u" scene, but I guess they didn't exactly have time to do the whole hunting around for the meadow bit. Also some of Bella's acting skills near the beginning left me a little meh.
The baseball scene? MADE OF EPIC WINZ. Love love love. And Billy was totally cracking me up, as was Esme. And, am I remembering incorrectly, or was Mike never that freaking adorable ever in the book? Because I kind of wanted to hug him and pat him on the head and adopt him. Along with Jacob. Whom I adore (okay okay SSH, I still haven't read the last two books!).
...And omg, Carlisle. Want. Now plz.
So all in all, the experience was definitely a positive one, much to my shock and amazement. I want to see it again. Preferably sometime soon. I do love me some dark fantasy sappy romance, I will not lie.
Did I mention I'm kind of madly in love with Carlisle? No? Because I kind of totally am.
