Now that I have seen the movie. The question is: did I like it? On the one hand, a lot of my favorite parts were in the movie. It was great to see them portrayed on screen. I liked many of the characters and particular scenes were great. On the other hand, some bits of the movie were WAY cheesy, and it wasn’t the book. I know, I know. Books are always better than the movie (except in the case of Princess Diaries…in which I would just skip the book and head straight to Blockbuster). However, in the Twilight Saga, one of my most favorite parts of the book is being inside Bella’s head. Every time something happens, Bella thinks through a reaction. The reader knows Bella better than Bella knows Bella. In the movie…you don’t hear Bella’s thoughts at all. In the movie you are watching Bella and only know the reasons behind her reactions because of having read the book. If you haven’t read the book….you just miss out.
Plus did I mention that some parts are just super cheesy? It was good for what it was. It wasn’t the book. Do I like it? Do I not? (Should I pull out a daisy and start plucking petals here?) But I think I need to see it once more before I decide if I really liked it…or not. I guess I am still just processing….processing…processing.
