I used to be sorta in the closet about my love of Twilight, but since the release of the movie I've decided to just go ahead and embrace it. Jenny has been a catalyst, since she has read the books 4 times and is still an interesting and intelligent person. We decided to go all out and have Twilight Day last Thursday. We made Twilight-inspired food: Vampire Cupcakes and Irritable Grizzly.

And Coagulated Blood to drink.

We looked like vampires, too. Well, we tried. I ended up looking more like Stephenie Meyer. Isobel should totally be cast as Renesmee.

Jenny's eyes are red because she's not hungry.

And here's Isobel moving superfast-

That night we went to see the premiere at 12:01am. We were excited, but tried to retain our vampiric cool.

We met some friends there. Here are Maren and Marelyse looking like Jenny's movietime snacks:

Ha ha ha, you do look like Stephenie Meyer on that photo. Wow, that's weird! ;)

What did you think of the movie?

I loved the movie, though I can recognize that it's not a great cinematic feat. I've actually already seen it twice because I am OBSESSED.
The only thing I really hated was the music they chose for the more intense scenes. Cheesy electric guitar movie-of-the-week type stuff. Uuuuuuugh. But I thought the actors were good and it was very true to the book, all things considered.
Have you seen it? When does it come out in Europe?

Shineah said...

Yes, I've seen it! It doesn't come out in Finland until January, so I flew over to Stockholm because they had an early screening on Nov 20th. That cost me a lot of money, ha ha, but it was all worth it! What did I think of the movie? It was good, different, but good. I posted a review on my blog. :)

Oh, and by the way, Isobel does look a LOT like Renesmee. You should curl her hair, it'd be perfect! :)

Shineah said...

Oh, and I forgot to say: yeah I agree about the score. I thought the music was actually pretty good, except for the score they used during the intense scenes (was that supposed to be scary?!). And guess what, it's in the running to be nominated for an Oscar. Buahaha.

I've also read the books a few times and hope to be listed among those who are intelligent and interesting despite that fact. :)
