I'm still confused about the movie, myself. I felt like if I had seen the movie without reading the books beforehand, I would have hated it. That being said, I had three friends, all very different personalities, that watched the movie without reading the books and loved it. Two out of three read Twilight afterward and also enjoyed it (except Adrienne who roles her eyes and points out to me every time SM writes "chuckle"). I saw the movie trailer before I even dreamed I'd read the books, and it looked really dumb. Maybe it was because I was very anti-vampire before? But SM's vamps aren't your typical coffin-bound, goth makeup, fang bearing vamps. And they are oh so sexy. If you liked the books, you will like the movie almost certainly. If not...who knows.
