Warning: If You Love Twilight, then turn back, you have been warned.
Yesterday I was looking for something to watch, so I turned on "Twilight" the first movie of the series. It stars Bella and Edward (a vampire). So I watched it and frankly, I wasn't impressed at all, infact, I wish I hadn't wasted my time!
Here is my sarcastic summary.
Bella moves from Arizona, goes to school, meets pedophile vampire, stalks him, he stalks her, and in two seconds they fall in love. He meets Bella's dad, she meets his "family" and almost dies. Edward has to save her by sucking venom out of Bella, or else she becomes a vampire. He saves her and then she wakes up in a hospital and her mom tells her she just fell down the stairs.
So after much disgust, I thought "Perhaps it gets better in the second movie." Then Edward dumps Bella, telling her "I shouldn't have let this go on for so long." Um ok, what the hell is wrong with you? She gets all sick in the middle of a forrest, gets carried out of the woods by Indian Fabio boy, and then falls in love with her other friend Jacob.
This would make sense if they established Jacob's character alot better, like give him more screen time, or atleast some backstory. When he cut his hair, I didn't even recognize who he was. Anyways, when she was attacked by that Jamaican vampire, and rescued, I just couldn't watch anymore.
Sigh. You know, this had the potential to be a very good movie; however, I think the actors killed it. "Interview With A Vampire," a movie I watched when it first came out, was much more enjoyable.
My other beef, there is only one scene in the first movie explaining Edwards origin as a vampire. There is no story showing how he got to the hospital after being sick. As far as I am concerned, it would have made more sense to write him as a brain dead zombie, because I couldn't tell he was a vampire if I knew nothing about this series.
Or it was just the horrid acting. I am not excusing anything.
