Our date with Edward...


Will and I went and saw Twilight Saturday night. I told Will, it was important for him to go, so that he could learn to emulate Edward. I have to say he's been such a good sport, and doesn't even mind me wearing my special shirt, or me telling him that I'm looking for a vampire to bite him.

And surprisingly, he loved the movie, while I was disappointed with it. The books have made millions and millions of dollars, could they not have given the movie a bigger budget, afford actors that could act, and spend a little more on the special effects? Seriously, sparkle skin, what was that? And Jasper... I wonder what the script said for his character (must portray that you look constipated throughout entire movie, speaking parts are secondary). On a nicer note, I was actually ok with Robert Patterson as Edward, although he is far from the ideal man I had pictured. I was thinking Heath Ledger. Of course, I cast Heath Ledger in every part, curses that he died.
update (Nov.29,2008): well this is just a side note, it has always pleased me that my friend Becky always makes mention that she thinks Calvin reminds her of a little Edward. Well today, we were at a cool little play place in town called Rafiki and I had a group of women all tell me how they all thought that Calvin looked like a mini Edward. Well tickle me pink, I couldn't ask for a better compliment!

AGREED AGREED! Edward was okay, but hello? His acting?! Bella looked like a good Bella though. And Jasper's constipation was hilarious and where were his scars! I hate when they don't follow the book. I laughed outloud at the sparkle skin! Couldn't it be more subtle with some good makeup? Actually, ALL the makeup sucked. And they wasted tons of time at the beginning of the movie.

Oh my gosh! You are right, Calvin is totally a little Edward. He will grow up to be strong like Will, too. How cute. I havn't seen the movie yet, mostly because Dane says he'd rather die but I think I'll ease him into it soon.

I am so with you! Why couldn't they have made a better movie? I only hope they get to redeem themselves with a 2nd movie.
