Twilight

I have not read Twilight and I did not see it in the theaters. I am however secure enough with my masculinity to watch it once it was released on DVD. I tried to approach it with an open mind. I knew very little about this story except for the fact that it's about a vampire named Edward. That being said here is my review.

First of all I have never seen so many pasty pale complexions in the first 10 minutes of any movie in my life. When I saw Dr. Cullen, all I could see was Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire. I wondered it the makeup artist for this movie intentionally did that. The family baseball game with the sister vampire pitching was too much for me to take. If you are a vampire with superhuman powers you should at least be able to throw a baseball.

I'm sorry but Twilight just didn't work for me. I don't want to be mean or rip on it but it felt more like watching a television episode on the WB than a movie. I'm sure if I was a girl and in Jr. High I would have related to it better. I'm sorry this is so short but that is all I have to say. I give it 5.6 out of 10 stars. At least I was able to add an evil twin to my collection as a result of watching it.

Dear blogger:

Because I'm mean, I've chosen to tag you for the Favorite Film Characters meme.

Why you? Because you're among the newest five members of the Large Association of Movie Blogs. Yes, that's quite arbitrary.

Here's where I tag you:

The book made me pray for death so I haven't mustered up the will power to watch the movie. But even friends who loved the book said the movie was just sort of medium.
