Even without fangs, ‘Twilight’ movie sucks

November 24, 2008

I’m sad to report that even with low expectations for Twilight, I was really disappointed by the movie. First of all, the casting was all wrong. The only characters who came close to what I’d imagined were Billy, Mike, Jessica, Alice, and Esme. Kristen Stewart as Bella was pretty but incredibly awkward. Not awkward in a Michael Cera (of Arrested Development and Juno fame) sort of way, but in a painful to watch sort of way. The movie followed the book very closely, which I usually appreciate. Twilight, however, would have benefitted from some changes. Reading Meyer’s often ridiculous dialogue wasn’t nearly as bad as hearing it on screen and then watching Kirsten Stewart’s deadpan face. 

Edward was appropriately good looking (though the Edward in my head had more muscles, grace, and better posture), but boring. So boring that I didn’t even realize until reading about the movie that he’s the same actor (Robert Pattinson) who played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I love Cedric. Edward was forgettable. And that hair… Edward’s wild rat nest hardly screams “class” or “style”.

There was also no chemistry between Edward and Bella, just a lot of intense stares and stutters. 

The movie was creepy, but not in the way we would hope – only in Bella’s lack of reaction when Edward tells her he’s been sneaking into her bedroom for the past couple of months to watch her sleep. It makes a me a little sick to my stomach thinking of all those tween and teen girls out there swooning over Edward’s possessive, stalkerish behavior. 

I suppose I still enjoyed the movie, but I can’t imagine how anyone who hasn’t read the book would. The movie assumed too much of its audience, and even having read the books, I thought it was choppy, bits and pieces strung together.  

The special effects were also sorely lacking. Edward scampering up and down trees looked absurd, and the blurry movements of the vampires – while meant to convey their inhuman speed – were just cheesy.

Well, it’s clear how I feel. What did you think? Were the characters as you imagined them? Did it live up to the book, and the hype?

    I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who found Bella’s lack of reaction a little strange when Edward confessed about his nightly visits. It kinda makes me want to double-check the locks on MY bedroom window. I don’t remember it being quite like that in the books, but it HAS been a few months since I’ve read the first one…

    No kidding! I thought it was creepy in the book, too, but for whatever reason, actually seeing Bella’s lack of reaction on screen (vs. reading the part and imagining that Bella has any semblance of sense) made it worse.

      Wow… did you, the person who obviously doesn’t know how to spell, nor knows proper grammar and speaks like a retard (no offense meant to the mentally retarded kids) tell the author, on who’s page YOU are on, to go to school and stop giving her opinion.

      What country are you from? (If you’re not from the US, then sorry for this, but even if you’re not, it’s called respecting another persons opinion)

      Go look up the constitution or the bill of rights, because the most important ones include:

      – freedom of speech
      – freedom of press

      Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

      I also THOUGHT (as in, my opinion, because we’re allowed to have them) that the author had backed up her opinion on the “hatred”(I use that term lightly, because it’s more a mild distaste for the movie) of twilight with actual facts and such. While you just ranted and raved while your spelling exponentially grew worse.

      About that bit on creativity… that’s why we read books. That’s the mark of creativity. Movies based on books, are for people who have so little imagination that they can’t picture the story that the book is trying to tell (that and to earn money, but the former helps my case).

      By the way… what does school have anything to do with her opinion on the choosing of actors/actresses?

    I’ve made the other way around. First I watched the movie. I didn’t like it, but that usualy happens when it’s based on a book.
    Then I decided to give a chance to the book. I just finished. It’s not my kind of book, but somehow I end up loving the story. It’s simple, distracts and you don’t have to think too much. Great for the moments we need to forget about ourselfs.
    Now, with sympathy for the characteres, and as I already had some kind of sympathy for the ones in the big screen, the movie is not bad at all. I cannot imagine anyone else to play it but them (Pattinson and cia.).
    Oh, and that guy who plays Jasper is perfect for the part. “the blonde one who looks like he’s in pain”.

    Okay Ms.Awesome, your totally awesome! I couldn’t agree more! Twilight was the best movie in the history of mankind, I saw the movie before I read the books and it was still amazing. Then I went and bought all the books, and read the whole series twice! Then I saw the movie four more times… AND DON’T BE DISSING ROBERT’S HAIR!!! It’s totally hot and we all know it!

    Obviously, most of you probally didnt read the books before the movie. Which is sad because the movie was crap as well as the acting. Robert Pattinson was a good Cedric yet horriable edward and they tried to play Bella off as sexy instead of the down to earth, clutz she is. People are allowed to have opionions, just because not everyone was awwed by this crappy overated chessy romance dosnt mean there dumb.

    ok, the twilight movie was not great. i read the books and thought they were fine. but the movie in comparison was really not good. Kristin Stewart had 2 expressions: blank, and ‘oh crap im dying’. the special effects were way cheesey. the makeup was wierd. and i feel they cut out some vital pieces of the story. i was really hyped up for this movie; and i left the theater sadly disappointed

    On the plus side:
    I can’t think of any…

    On the BAD side:
    (Let’s start from the beginning of the movie)
    *Bella wasn’t supposed to meet Jacob Black until they got to the beach.
    *She was supposed to lead him on the get information about the vampires
    *When he told her about it, he called them the pale faces while it was supposed to be the COLD ONES
    *Claire de Lune was supposed to be playing in the car, not in his bedroom
    *Their kissing scene was supposed to be nervous, not as if they were getting it on
    *She cooked a lot for Charlie, and she never cooked one time in the movie

    I could go on and on forever and a day on how the people(who obviously didn’t even read the book) screwed it all up. I feel bad for people who have not read the books, but I feel worse for the people who have but had to sit and watch this piece of garbage. It was an AWESOME book(better than Harry Potter in my opinion) but an ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE movie.

      Actually, you should get some facts straight before ranting the way you did. Bella did meet Jacob before the beach.

      1) She knew him from the summers she spent with Charlie in Forks

      2) She reunited with him when Billy and Jacob came over, he told her all about the truck and how he had rebuild the engine and yadda yadda yadda.

      That being said, the movie was a let down, I really enjoyed the book series, and was hoping for a better cast. The acting was… ok, not great by any means, but I also admit that I am looking forward to the second movie.

      i think harry potter is awsome,i never saw twilight but i have saw pictures of edward i still like cidric better every time he would appear in the goblet of fire i felt like i fell in love with him so i was sad when he died

    I saw the movie first, and didnt get what was so great about it. But both of my sisters had ranted and raved about how great the books were, so i read them. Surprisingly i finished all 4 of them in 5 days, so needless to say i loved them. After reading the books i rewatched the movie and i liked it alot better, but it doesn’t do the books justice in my opinion. However, i was still one of those people who bought the movie at 12:00 the night it came out last week…

  19. March 29, 2009 2:21 pm

    If you say that the movie follows the book a lot, then you’re absolutely wrong or you haven’t read the book properly. There are many differences that I find important or rather strange that they didn’t follow.

    In my opinion the characters were well chosen. If you realy read the book than you should have realised that Edward is strong without that he looks incredibly strong with muscles that make you scared. That’s the task of Emmet.

    His whole attitude gives him flair and class. And you should have looked more into ‘Edward’ his eyes than to his hair. Above that his hair gives him that wild touch. It’s far more diffult to put his hair into that ‘ratnest’ or whatever you called it than the Cedric-haircut …

    No chemistry? You cleary didn’t see the eye-contact and how the electricity sprung when they were inches away from each other… I mean… he’s a bloody vampire, what did you expect? That they were constanly grabbing each other? He’s thirsty for her blood, remember?

    I guess you really didn’t get the book… Look, Bella is totally addicted to Edward, she’s so addicted that that’s the most scary part of the movie… So it’s pretty obvious that she doesn’t care that he follows her like a prey. She wouldn’t want it any other way. Love is a drug and it makes the strangest, freakiest things absolutely normal.

    I saw the movie and got the whole picture without reading the book. I bought the book and also loves it. But getting around 400 pages in only 2 hours is pretty damn difficult. There are always things that get lost or that need to be changed. The story is fluent enought but ofcourse not as fluent as a book. A book doesn’t have boundaries but a movie inspired on a book has.

    I found the blurry scenes rather well found. It makes it really clear what they mean. And the special effect were pretty good. Okay, I didn’t really like the tree-scenes but I’m asking myself if that could have been better… People are no monkeys or climbers. Vampires aren’t too.

    So now you know what I think 😉

    i think the books and the movie are awesom and if they could keep making books i beg they do, because i’m a big fan of harry potter and twilight and i think Rober looks awesome. And Bella and Edward make a good couple i think they look really cute.

    I agree on this review wholeheartedly! I was a fan and read all four book before the movie came out. but after seeing the movie it kinda ruined the whole thing for me. I hate to say it because as a fan myself i really wanted and prayed for this movie to be good, but unfortunately it isn’t. It’s just plain bad! people saying the movie is good (presumbly teen girls, die-hard twilight fans, or both) either have no taste in movies or are completely blinded by their devotion for the books. Although i had very low expectations for this movie beforehand, it still managed to disappoint me. There are some nice moments but as a whole the movie fails. It’s awkard, pretentious and cheesy to a point where it became painful to watch. I hope new moon will turn out much better than this one, but i’m doubtful.

  22. April 1, 2009 7:55 pm

    I thought the movie could have been better. But the whole point in a movie, that has a series of books, is that the movie is supposed to leave out details. Bella cooking for Charlie in the book was supposed to be left out, cause no one even cares about that part. Oh my god, she can cook! How amazing, so can my mom!

    Edward/Robbert, was a great actor, and yes, I will agree him running up the hill kinda made me laugh, cause it looked like he was flaoting.
    And as always, the book barely had any lovey-dovey scenes. Basically, its like a first date. You dont want to make out all of the time. Sure there going to stare, and stutter, and do other stupid things teens do. Probably only Bella, since Edward is 110. But the book and movie, both conincided with eachother. They left un-important things out, and mainly stuck with the important things. And a reference to the music playing in his room and NOT in the car, the author (Stephenie Meyer) probably left that out. She might have wanted the mood to be different. Authors, and producers some times mix up the scenes every once in a while. Its not anyones fault the movie had flaws in it. But it sure is everyones fault who messes with EDWARD CULLEN BITCHES!!!!

    Rob was good as Edward but Kristen was completely ridiculous as Bella. In the books Bella’s face is “expressive” – everyone comments on it.. whereas in the movie her face and voice was deadpan and monotonous… it was WAY awkward watching her onscreen… they should have chosen someone else to play Bella

    This. Is. Why.
    I enjoyed the books and had no desire to see the movie. I don’t hate twilight. I would not recommend it to a friend, however.
    It’s the fans that really ruin it for me, such as “Ms.Awesome”-
    a) She attacks the critic for saying negative things;
    “If you aint gon say sometin nice about him, then dont say anything. Keep you dang rat mouth shut you dweeby gumba.”
    Do you see the hypocrisy? Ms.Awesome should take her own advice and keep her attacks positive if she expects others to do the same.
    b) She assumes that everyone who reads the book will love it, when there are many exceptions to this, including the one right in front of her.

    As well, I saw this comment:
    “Love is a drug and it makes the strangest, freakiest things absolutely normal.”
    No. Just, no. Just because you love someone does not mean that they are suddenly excused from being a creeper. That’s how you get hurt.

    Okayy first of all who do you think you are?
    Yeah sure everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but why are you so against? What did Stephanie Meyer ever do to you to put your granny panties in a knot? Cause for your info Twilight’s amazing, which is why so many people LOVE it, How old are you anyway? You must be about 60 and have no life if you think that twilight wasnt good, because this is a TEENAGE book, so go run along and read your cook books. And who the hell do you think you are to critise it? No one forced you to read the book or watch the film. As for Edward’s “Wild rat nest” Stephanie Meyer uses words such as “tousled” and “untidy” Stephanie Meyer never used the words “class” or “style” so I don’t know where you got that from. And what did you expect? A pageboy bob? Also I’m sure YOUR image of Edward would be different to everyone else’s since he’s supposed to be the most gorgeous boy in the world, so everyone’s image is going to be different, but everyone but you accepted that. Also “boring” doesnt make someone not see the similarities between Edward and Cederic. And how the hell can the casting be all wrong? Just because the characters used didn’t fit your expectations, doesnt mean they’re “wrong” because they can’t be if they’re how Meyer describes them in the book. Also on your comment about Kristen Stewart? She’s a brilliant actress, you mentioned her as “incredibly awkward” That’s how she’s described as in the books! Bella is not a confident character, she’s a very shy quiet person, which is how Kristen plays her, proving her to be a remarkable actress because she plays Bella so well!
    There was INTENSE chemestry between Bella and Edward, what did you expect? Fireworks and love hearts to start bubbling up on the screen everytime they looked at each other? And how were the special effects “sorely lacking”? You try and create a movie in which vampires exist I think everything about the film was brilliantly done, which is why it has so many FANS!

    Wow I can’t believe so many people found this movie amazing… it was far from it. Having read the books beforehand I was so looking forward to seeing it on screen and it just didn’t live up to expectations. Bella was awful, I totally agree it was just awkward to watch her blinking, head shaking and stuttering her way through. For anyone who hadn’t read the book I think it would be hard to comprehend the love these two supposedly have for each other, as in the film there is just nothing, they fall in love in like 2 minutes, end of… it leaves all their best conversations out, their getting to know each other. yet it put in stupid scenes of Edward jumping around in trees. I actually cringed when he said ‘hop on spider-monkey’ i mean wtf?oh and those stupid scene changes to the ‘bad’ vamps..sucked.

    I also saw the movie without having read the book (although I plan to do so as soon as possible!). I had no trouble following the plot, the dialogue was just fine, and loved the haunting sound track. As for chemistry — WOW! I had to remind myself that I am WAY to old for Mr. Pattinson, and had absolutely no difficulty understanding Bella’s attraction to Edward. This is a very romantic love story, made more intense by the fact that the only way these two young people could ever be together would be if Bella also became a vampire. Since Edward considers himself a “monster,” this is something he will always try to protect her from. Can’t wait for the additional films to come out, and I hope they get the rights for the 4th book too.

    I thought the twilight books were amazing, i read them all in a week!
    I watched the film before i read the books, and i couldnt wait to watch it again when it came out on DVD.
    When you watch the film and study it closely there are bits that are cheesy, and seem wrong. But nothing can be perfect and personally i think that no film should be watched looking for the bad bits.
    As for Robert Pattison .. I think he is totally gorgeous, as cedric as well as Edward (more as Edward though) and that was a big part of why i watched the film 6 times in the first week i got on DVD.
    I agree that some of the casting is different to what i imagined and therefore slightly disapointing but everyone’s imagination is different and so for some people the cast would be perfect.
    I can’t wait for the other films to be made, twilight is brilliant !!!

  30. April 19, 2009 3:15 am

    I too think Twilight was cheesy, Kristen Swan was awkward (wayy too much!) and the lack of response about the bedroom stalking thing creepy, BUT i think that all of the cast was well chosen. I hope that i the next movie Kristen Stewart will be less awkward tho..

    I have to agree with Mandy. When a book is transferred to the Big Screen, not everything can be brought to “life”. This is just an adaptation! I did not read the books before watching the movie, but had absolutely no problem following the story line. Since then I have read all four books and really love them. The chemistry between Bella and Edward is intense in the movie. They share a lot of intense looks, its not like they can have their arms wrapped around each other and be lovey dovey all the time, he is a vampire who is thirsting for her blood.
    As for Edwards hair, I think it suits the character well. I am old enough to be his mother but I think Robert Pattison as Edward Cullen is HOT!

    First let me say I was one of those that chose to watch the movie before they read the story. Which I am glad I did, because the movie is never as good as the book. I couldn’t wait to see the movie and I was happy with it. The story is every girls fantasy and sucks you in. So I went and bought the books and read them in a week. It is hard to make a movie from a book and not leave anything out…though I think they should have included some specific details that lead to New Moon…but maybe they will do that at the beginning of New Moon.
    About the acting, I wasn’t convinced at the beginning with Edward(Robert) but he grew on me and I thought for the most part he did very well and his eyes are memorizing. Of course being a young actor and still fairly new to acting he had his moments that weren’t very good. People you need to remember that Robert Pattinson is not Edward, no where near him. Edward is a character from a book that most girls dream of….Robert just played him. Im not hating but even he made comments about this.
    Bella I thought did very well, I don’t think she gets enough credit because the majority of the fan base is girls…and they are all googly for Robert. She of course had her moments too…but for the most part I was happy with their choice of Bella.
    Now Jacob (Taylor), I think he is going to take us by storm in New Moon…this is where you see so much of his character…and I can see that he is a good actor. Although I am curious to see how they make him fit his character as Jacob starts growing and looking older….because what he is.
    Anyway, let people have there opinions and stop being so infatuated with these actors that play these roles….it’s not healthy and they aren’t who they play.

    YOU CANT COMPARE , its THE book, and a movie…
    I have few friends who doest want to read the first book (and start with the second one), cos they saw the movie. but from 1 to 10 , the book could have a 11 and the movie 2 ..
    also, the movie its really good if you didnt read the book first.

    I agree with you on some points. the casting was not great, (Kristen Stewart was totally wrong) but we all know that the movie is never as good as the book. There is no way the movie could have been as amazing! Also Robert Pattinson would have been perfect for that roll but he and Bella look to awkward together! If you haven’t read the book it would have been an enjoyable movie but it is so different that I thought it kind of sucked! That is just my opinion though!

    P.S. I think New Moon will be better now that the actors have experience as their characters.

The way that they look at each other makes you long for a love like theirs! I do agree that Bella seemed very “Needy” and it was annoying. But I found the acting quite well, and Robert Pattinson did an AMAZING job! God Job Guys!!! I’m looking forward to New Moon!

    How can you say that about twilight? I suppose it is down to opinion on the film and the way they adapted it from the book. However you shouldn’t criticise the acting skills of Robert and Kristen. I read the book and think they played the characters to perfection which is why so many girls have fallen for Edward, in my eyes Robert brought that charcater to life and you’ll find that if the characters couldn’t act and the film was rubbish it would not of won 5 MTV awards, for best breakthrough performance for Robert and best girl for kristen, best fight, best kiss and most icredible of all BEST movie! We can all have our own opinions but its not kind to criticise the Actors who have worked hard and brought the book so many of us love to life.

    I “used to” love the books and everything Twilight, but the movie sucked so bad that it actually ruined the whole thing for me and made me realize how stupid I was for thinking the whole Twilight crap was good. Sometimes you just need a slap in the face (like the movie) to help you finally see what something truly is, instead of what you think it is.

    i do agree with you that the characters didnt seem to look like anything i had seen in my head. but i think casting kristen stewart as bella was a HUGE mistake. Watching her on screen made me want to vomit!

    I personally didn’t care as long as I was watching Robert Pattinson on screen. I hate Bella and Kristen Stewart for the most part so it was hard for me to fully enjoy the movie. Or the book series for that matter because I’m just ecentric like that. I do have to admit, Rob was a bit too…dead for Edward. Neither one of the starring actors had any bit of inflection in their voices. Robert was a better actor though, and that was not a bias because I don’t like Kristen. Or Bella.
    I just watched The Goblet Of Fire for the 60th time the other night and Robert’s acting was better as Cedric Diggory. It was better in Little Ashes too. But Rob eclipsed Kristen Stewart. I even think Carlisle was a better actor and he was just plain…creepy. I think that look on Kristen’s face is just permanent. I’ve seen Into The Wild, Adventureland, and some horror movie on Lifetime where she never got that I-have-a-stick-shoved-up-my-butt expression off her face. I just can’t wait for her to ruin Joan Jet (who I love). Or Jett. I don’t know.
    I had just finished the book one day before the movie. It was my favorite book and I had serious expectations that only Robert, Ashley, Jackson, Taylor, Kellan, Nikki, and the three bad vampires met. Taylor’s wig was horrible.
    I love Twilight. And Robert Pattinson. Definatly Robert Pattinson. But the movie was cheesy and Rob & Kristen had ABSOLUTELY NO CHEMISTRY (which I didn’t mind, by the way.)
