twilight-groupshot-bigPlot: Bella Swan was not expecting anything out of the ordinary to happen when she moved to live with her Dad in Forks, Washington. But this where her life truly begins. There she meets Edward Cullen, a mysterious and captivating student at her new high school. Bella soon discovers that Edward is hiding a secret, after he impossibly saves her life from a van with his super-human strength and speed. 

Ok, I am just going to say it…I liked it.  Yes, I am embarrassed to admit that I enjoyed this film.  

However, despite the fact that I enjoyed it, doesn’t mean it was a fantastic film.  Lets start with the lead actress Kristen Stewart…totally wrong for the part.  Secondly, the graphics were seriously bad.  I don’t think the film had a high budget, so hopefully this will be fixed for the next film.  Lastly, some of the acting was seriously bad, seriously over the top, and seriously disapointing.  I guess this should have been expected though, the book was just as sappy and silly.

twilight-462-largeIf there is one thing I learned from this film it is the following: Robert Pattinson really is the sexiest man I have ever seen.  I never saw his appeal, well, after this film…I sure do.  I am officially in love with him.

Overall though, the film was really fun and exciting (just like the book) and I recommend it to people 12+ who either A. like sappy romance movies and/or B. have read the books.  I give this movie a 3/5 stars. 

Ps. His “brothers” are hot.
