I could have COMPLETELY done without the monkey movements up a tree and ultra fast running that looked a little, well, I feel it apropriate to use the word again, COMPLETELY FAKE! I mean when I was a kid Interview with a vampire was my favorite movie...they didn't have freaky wierd movements like that in it. I mean half of the audience laughed everytime Edward ran or went up a tree...kinda took away from the movie for me.
My advice for the next movie...no more running and climbing trees like a monkey, but more stopping wrecking cars with your bare hands...HOT! Ok, and I heard a lot of complaints about the casting...since I didn't read the book, I've gotta give my "what I think about the casting" review. At first I thought Edward was soo ugly yet vampiresche. By the end, I thought he was hot and wished Jase was a real vampire. Bella, I loved her. And I read on someone's blog that they could never be friends with her. I'd love ot be friends with her. Of coarse, I went through a bit of a dark/goth stage in life. I'm one of the weirdies.
Now I will tell you what I liked about the movie....cover your children's eyes....the sexual tension! My gosh people! Seirously, for the first hour of the movie it was just Bella and Edwards with their amazingly longing eyes starring at each other at different venues. Then, THEN when they finally start speaking and stop hating, it's like they have to have their lips an inch away from each other's everytime they talk, which, you know, usually leads to something. AND THEN, THEN, when they finally kiss and he shoves himself against the walll......AHH! I wanted to scream....get it on! So that part did leave me longing for more. And I was reasurred by someone that they do finally get it on in part 4 or something? Can someone tell me when so I can know which other one to watch. Not that Like porn, but I do want to make sure they break that intense tention. Did anyone else feel a lot of majorly hot sexual tension during this movie? AHH! oH, and I agree with Amy....although I don't know how much she was involved int he book, there should have been more Alice in the movie...she's adorable...but the creepy guy that she was with...he shouldn't have existed...weird.
Ok, and there you have it, a movie review from a non vampire book lover.
