I'm sure most of you have read or heard of this book series...which I decided to read to prove how silly it was- I didn't like Bella's attitude...but liked it enough to see how it ended. Now, in no way was I CRAZY about this book. But I knew a lot of people who were... in fact, one family member bought out a theater to see the movie, and another took her kids to the midnight showing! I never did see the movie while in theaters. Mostly because while talking to a friend I was told that they didn't stay as true to the book as I would have hoped. (for time's sake I guess...) and when I saw who they'd cast as actors I was a tad disappointed in a few choices.
Well after all the rave I decided I'd see the movie when it came out, and my husband and I jokingly decided I should go at midnight to walmart to get it. (I also did this with batman) THERE WAS A LINE! A billion teens stood in line for this movie, and since I've never really done so for anything, I decided to join in- knowing walmart surely wouldn't run out of the film. An hour later after hearing all sorts of feedback I purchased my copy and headed home a little flabbergasted. I couldn't think of many things that were that trendy in my day that I actually bought into... maybe a boy band or too... but this was like T-shirts and jewelry and all kinds of swag... I am amazed still at how much money a few parents ahead of me dropped on twilight crap for their kids!
Anyway- I had to find out if it was the rave as soon as I got home... and I had one thought: would I have known what was going on if I hadn't read it? I mean they never even introduced the names of 1/2 the friends...or more about his family... am I thinking of later book material?? Idk.
Oh. and another funny thing. You know how you really don't know how you sound to everyone else? Well during the movie, I mentioned that Bella had a non-femine voice, to which my sister and husband looked at each other and started laughing. Thanks. I guess I have a dude voice. Lol.
