Molli (step-daughter)went to Borders at midnight this past Friday with a few of her friends to buy a copy of this movie. She read the first book and loved it, so she wanted to see the movie. So Saturday night after I got home from work, Elise, Tina, Molli, Chelsey (friend of Molii's), and I watched Twilight... it felt like "girls-night-out"! As I have said so many times before, I'm a traditionalist when it comes to my vampires. I had heard that in Twilight that these vampires were able to be out in daylight... albeit, not direct sunlight because it lets us humans see them for what they really are. Interesting twist, I guess.

I'm sitting there watching the movie and I realized that I am being sucked in to the whole Twilight phenomenon... I was stunned! I could not believe that I had succumbed to its power. I have to admit that the character of Edward Cullen was the most intriguing character in the movie to me. He reminded me so much of Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows fame. It is no secret that I love the show Dark Shadows and that Barnabas is my favorite vampire. I love the whole reluctant vampire theme. It is almost like a "good guy/bad guy" theme where the character is basically an evil person but tries to do good. I felt that Edward was that type of character. He wanted Bella, but he was afraid he couldn't control his desire for her blood. The Cullen clan did not feed on humans, they got their blood from animals. There is a fair amount of tension in the movie and because it is PG-13 there is very little violence shown. All in all, it was a very good movie... I look forward to the follow-up.

(2008) PG-13
Based on Stephenie Meyer's best-selling novel, Twilight follows the saga of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who moves to a small town to live with her father.
