Movie/Book Review: Twilight
I don't like to make blanket sweeping statements, so I won't overstate this: Robert Pattinson is the hottest vampire in the whole entire universe of vampires.
One of my gifts was a book called Twilight by Stephanie Meyers. It's a 4 part saga about a vampire who falls in love with a human. The tension between the two of them is palpable. The writing is mediocre at best but because of this electricity between the two, it makes for a most exciting read. I gobbled it up in about 2 seconds and was thirsty for more - more blood!!! (No, there's no real amount of blood in it at all, but it's still a good book).
Last night I went to see the movie. Watching movies after you read the book is like seeing the characters you imagined in your mind coming to life - it's awesome! The other way around, not so much, because the book is always better. I know it's a cliche to say that, but it's true. The movie was beautiful and I loved it.
I don't know about anyone else, but my wish for the new year is for a 35 yr old Robert Pattinson vampire to fall in love with me. There, I said it. You heard me. I'm sure all of you out there who saw it or read the book are thinking the exact same thing, so, yeah - don't be hatin'.
Really that was it for my post, to tell you all how much I loved the book and the movie. I'm going to start book 2 immediately and will be ordering 3 and 4 from Amazon forthwith.
I leave you with the trailer to wet your appetite:
