I'm so involved in the Twilight world that now that the moment was finally here I was a little bit scared to actually see the movie. My expectations and hopes were set so high and I was afraid that I would be disappointed. Luckily my fears were laid to rest- I really enjoyed the movie. Are there things I would change? Of course! But overall the movie was fabulous!!!
~The cast: I am so impressed!!! There were a couple of people I was a little bit worried about. Jackson most of all. I hadn't seen that moment where he became Jasper in any of the footage I had seen so I was worried. He was amazing! He portrayed that desperation to control himself to perfection! There was not one cast member that I was disappointed in. They all hit their characters dead on!
~The music: I've really enjoyed the soundtrack since I purchased it but seeing how the music fits into the movie made it even better. I wasn't a huge fan of Bella's Lullaby but now it makes me all gooey inside. I even enjoyed Rob's songs in the movie. My favorite music moment was the placement of Muse's Super Massive Black Hole. When you see the movie you'll understand why.
~The special effects: Without spoiling anything I'm just going to say that I was dazzled!!! There were a couple of really big special effects that I was a worried about and all my worries were in vain.
~The kiss.... gah!!!!! Just don't forget to breathe!!!! (seriously, it's that good!!!)
~The adaptation from the book: As with any movie made from a book there are things that were left out, things that were added, and things that were changed. You have to go into any movie expecting that. To me an adaptation is successful if the spirit of the book is present in the movie. So based on that criteria in my eyes the adaptation of Twilight was a success.
~My favorite scenes (subject to change after another viewing)
- The Baseball scene- this was hands down the coolest scene in the movie! I was so sad when the nomads entered the field because I knew it was coming to an end. I wanted it to last longer!
- The hospital scene (entrance of Dr. Carlisle Cullen!!!) Oh my Carlisle!!!!! I am in LOVE with him. He is my favorite character in the entire movie! *thud*
- The scene where Edward brings Bella home to meet his family. I won't elaborate but it was funny and I loved it!!
- The ballet scene kicked butt too! I loved the action, the emotion and the way it ends almost had me in tears.
Ok, that's enough rambling for tonight. I really wanted the movie to start over as soon as it was finished so I could see it again. I was so anxious the first time that I'm sure I missed tons of stuff.
I just have to add one more time before I go to bed- I LOVE Carlisle!!!! I know I've said it before but Peter Facinelli blew me away!!!
