So last night I finally managed to make the time to go see Twilight. I've read all four books, quite liked them, and couldn't wait to see this movie.
I absolutely wish I had never gone to see it.
This is potentially one of the worst films that I have ever seen. Instead of a fully fleshed out story, it felt like a weak outline (and the people I went with who haven't read the books thought this as well). Except for Charlie, Bella, and Edward, the entire film was horribly miscast. The script was dreadful. The direction was somewhere between, "If I force myself to choke on my popcorn, this will all be over faster" and "Gnawing my own skin off would be a bit more pleasant."
The only two positive things that have come out of the existence of the film: (1) Pictures of Robert Pattinson plastered everywhere; bad movie aside, he's still gorgeous (2) Lots of pretty fashion (hello Gucci boots!!) in magazine pictorials for promotion.
