Yesterday Russ and I did end up going to see Twilight at the $2.50 theater. It never ceases to amaze me how Hollywood can take a best selling book and totally ruin the whole thing. The movie was awful. Slow, melodramatic with bad acting and even worse special effects. The characters in the book are so vivid and alive! What happened to them in the movie? They were boring. Half way through the movie, I started laughing at how bad the special effects were. Maybe if I was thirteen and in love with the actor who played Edward (who incidentally also played Cedric Diggory in the fourth Harry Potter...and played that role badly, also) I would have enjoyed it. The only thing that salvaged the date was the popcorn and candy. I have no intention of seeing the second one that comes out in November and this is definitely not a movie that is going to be in my library...unless I buy all of them off the shelves so no one else will have to endure two hours of horribleness.
