I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

About three things I was absolutely positive:
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him–and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

I finally did it! Heidi (Adam's brother Austin's girlfriend) and I went to go see the Twilight movie last night. We have been trying to arrange a date for while now with Amanda (Aaron's wife), but schedules have been crazy. Heidi and I were finally able to go yesterday! People told me that it was important to remember that the movie is not the book. As is the case in any book turned movie, they change some things and they cannot include every detail, so if you go into it thinking "That is different." and "That isn't how it happened in the book", you will be disappointed. Overall, I really enjoyed the movie. It did make me want to read the books again; however, I won't be able to do that until April when my class is over!

Things I liked about the movie:
Rosalie-I could not get a good picture of her in my head in the book and I think she was perfect in the movie
Emmett-Same as above. I couldn't get a good picture of the big burly handsome vampire in my head and the casting was perfect.
Carlisle-At first it didn't sit right with me, but by the end of the movie I totally bought him as Carlisle.
The scene in the dance studio-I think that was done very well. Except it freaked me out when Alice tore James' head off.

Things I didn't care for in the movie:
Jasper-I thought he was a bit creepy. What's with the hair? And his facial expressions were weird, especially since they didn't explain that he feels the feelings of people in the room.
The scene in the baseball field-I thought when James said, "You brought a snack" and they all crouched down, it looked a little lame and not as intense as it should have been.
Esme-During the movie I was having a hard time buying her as Esme. All I could think about was she seemed weird, but I couldn't remember where she was from. After the movie, Heidi reminded me that she was weird Rebecca from Grey's Anatomy.

Here is the extended trailer if by some chance you have been hiding under a rock and haven't seen it yet!

I enjoyed the movie too. If you compare it to the book, it's no good. Just like Harry have to think of the books and movies as two different things.

I had trouble with Esme too, but I thought Jasper was funny.
