Buzz Kill

I picked up the Twilight movie yesterday at Target. I could NOT wait to get home and watch the movie. I am a huge fan of the whole series, read it twice through and Midnight Sun as well. I just cannot get enough of those two crazy vampire kids.....until I watched the movie and it totally killed my Edward-Bella-Twilight buzz. Totally killed it.

I think if you have only watched the movie and have not read the books you owe it to yourself to read the books. You really don't get the depth of the relationship and much detail is lost in the movie. The movie was a huge disappointment for me. I mean other than Rob and all that.....the storyline was too vague. You don't get Alice's powers or her friendship with Bella, you don't get the whole Edward reading minds thing, you only get bits and snatches of the whole story.

You are doing yourself a huge disservice if you do not read the series. Seriously.....it's THAT GOOD. the movie however.......notsomuch

So if you watched the movie and you just don't get the hype, then you haven't read the books.

I'm holding out hope that deleted scenes and interviews and extra stuff included will be better.....

I saw the movie a month ago and was thinking, "typical teen flick"...granted I just started Breaking Dawn for the first time, movies never live up to the hype, although Edward was still hot!

I felt the exact same way...
the first time i saw the movie. second time, it was better. Third time, i enjoyed it. sure its not the book, not even close but it is just a movie and they are never as good as the book. and Edward/Rob is so damn hot.
i really hope the focus more on the relationships in the ones to come.

I actually agree... I do really like the movie, but it does not do the books justice at all. I have high hopes for New Moon...new director/producer... and all!

Thank you for posting about your buzz kill! I was afraid to see the movie because it would kill the books for me. Which I loved by the way. You just saved me some cash! THANKS

Yes, books are always better but I never have time to read anymore. As soon as I get some money and some free time without kids screaming at me I definitely want to read these books. :)
