    I went and saw Twilight the movie a 3rd time. I have the greatest story ever!

    I hope no one finds this offensive. Have you seen the Lonely Island music video, "Jizz in My Pants"? I think it's done by the SNL guys. Link here:
    Well someone put the music to a certain Twilight scene:
    So, as you know if you've seen the movie, that particular scene, when Edward first smells Bella, is a very serious scene. But I'm thinking "Jizz In My Pants" the whole time so I start to giggle a little. Then the girls behind me break out laughing, and I know there's only one reason they could be laughing, so I start laughing hysterically too...

    The other people in the theatre must have thought we were crazy. It was such a great moment. After the movie ended I turned to them and confirmed they had seen the internet video. Small world!

    Unfortunately I didn't like Twilight the movie. I was so excited about it (bonus, I get to see movies free since I work at a cinema) but I was sadly disappointed after having seen it. I thought it was just too unbelievable and their deep love for one another happened too fast. Maybe blood = ultrastrong pheremones for vampires? But I don't really understand how Bella could love someone that wanted to kill her at the same time, a little foolish if you ask me. Then again there are lots of customers that come and see it repeatedly and dress up in costumes (or maybe they really ARE vampires...), good for them. I'm waiting for Underworld 3 cos 1 and 2 were awesome.

    A little while back we had a thread named "worst movie you ever seen!" In my personal opinion I'd put Twilight there, along with The Spirit but that's another story.

    I found the movie to be about as stupid as the book--with the added bonus that Edward looked like a neandrathal clown. And the scene where Bella is studying vampires on the internet....ugh. I got dizzy! Surfing the web does not look like that! *gets queezy from the flashiness and abstractitude*

    The special effect with Edward's glittery skin was very cool, though. I also appreciated that, unlike most big-name American movies, it actually had a specific setting, instead of "generic somewhere in Americatown." This stuff is happening in the Pacific Northwest, and it matters.

    If I had not read the book, I would have thought Twilight was wretched. I was already in love with Bella & Edward, so the movie - despite it's flaws, was just a bonus for me.

    Despite what the reviews any my friends have said, I really enjoyed the movie. While it wasn't MY interpretation of the book (I read it before over 99% of its readers had even heard about it) it was a good one, and one that didn't ruin the book for me.
    I don't think I'll go and see the other though but that's purely 'cause I like Twilight as a standalone. New Moon bored me, Eclipse too...And I've been put off from Breaking Dawn after what I've heard about it. But we shall see.
    And I agree that the love developed WAY too fast, and that some was overdone...I found the first 30 minutes odd the first time I watched it 'cause the way the others at school treated Bella just seemed freaky, but I didn't find it as bad on the 2nd viewing.

    I wonder how many repeat viewers Twilight had. I don't think there's anyway to track that.

    I don't think I've spoken to anyone who's liked the movie and only seen it once...except for the friend I went to see it with.
    Obviously those who hated it have no reason to watch it again. :p

    I actually liked the movie. It wasn't as good as the book but the important scenes were very nice. And the soundtrack was brilliant. =)

    I love the soundtrack. I listen to it all the time. By far one of the best soundtracks!

    I did finally watch the movie and I have to say it wasn't horrible and I actually enjoyed it. I really think Rob pulled it off and really made the movie. Though, I still prefer him with is natural accent, Edward's accent did seem a bit forced now and then. He was really the one big reason why I even decided to read the book or watch the movie. I think he is a brilliant actor and musician.

    I have the Twilight dvd in hand - I never got around to seeing it at the pictures as the queues of giggling school girls put me of the idea. So what to expect? A teen-flick with a passive vampire twist? Sounds.... great :)

    I think I'm sort of neutral about Twilight.
    Read it once. Saw the movie once.
    Didn't hate it.
    Didn't love it.

    Maybe because there are no elves or fairies????


    I think the movie was an improvement on the book, simply because it added the killings by the 'bad' vampires. It was the only real suspense and made the 'bad' guys danger more believable.

    At first I thought the movie also improved the dialogue in places and I was giving credit to the screenwriter.

    But then I read 'Midnight Sun' on Ms. Meyers webpage and discovered that much of this manuscript was included in the movie screenplay.
