I went to see "Twilight" last night with my sister Fire Eagle and felt so happy about the way this movie was filmed in Forks, WA; where my family owns property and we vacation often. It was simply fun to learn how many vampires visit the old ma-&-pa-owned restaurant that I've eaten inside many times on the big screen. :D
Beyond that, I felt this was a a pretty good vampire flick (I'm still basking in the sexiness of this movie, the next day). I realize those who have read the Twilight book series feel disappointed at how the film deviates too much from the original text. Yet for those movie-goers who just want to see really sexy vampires confront not-so well-intentioned invading vampires (giving the residents of Forks Washington a lot of grief) then this movie might go on the "must see" list.
The movie's promoted plot line: "A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire" doesn't really seem to fit the movie as Bella Swan (main character) actually has the opportunity to stay young forever, increase her physical powers and to live forever with the hottest bad-boy ever seen on screen. What's there for her to risk? (aging, disease and dying?). Cough!
* Kristen Stewart ...as Bella Swan * Robert Pattinson ... a most charming vampire: "Edward Cullen" * Billy Burke ... Bella's dad: "Charlie Swan"
If you love vampire movies -- then I hope you go see it!
