Movie Review: Twilight (2008)
The movie Twilight is based upon the number one best-selling sensation by Stephenie Meyer with the same name; Twilight takes us into the world of Bella swan, played by Kristen Stewart, who is sent to live in the dreary Forks of Washington with her father. As the new kid in school, Bella is intrigued and attracted to one of the school’s outcast, Edward Cullen, played by Harry Potter’s own Cedric Diggory, Robert Pattinson. After Edward saves her life in a superhero-ish way, we find out Edward is a vampire but Edward and his family are good vampires, drinking only from animals, like deer, rabbits and homeless people. Just kidding about the homeless people. They’re the equivalent of “vampire vegetarians”. In Stephenie Meyer’s vampire world, the vampires don’t have fangs, they do possess great speed and strength, and they can walk around in daylight, but if they end up in sunlight, they sparkle like tin-foil in a microwave. I know lots of people have complained about these differences between real vampires and vampires within the movie but this is what makes it so unique because it isn’t anything you would expect. For instance, a movie with vampires in it, gives off the impression it is going to be full of blood and gore in every scene but Twilight is for anybody to watch because it is completely the opposite. There is no Dracula hunting down his next victim to re-quench his thirst, or anything as horrifying. Twilight is pretty much aimed at females more than males due to how surprisingly romantic it turns out to be. But it doesn’t matter if you are female or male, if you like a relaxing romantic film; this is one to watch on a dark winter’s night, next to the fire. I kept hearing from people that this is a great movie for teenage girls, now I don’t know what that says about me, because I liked it. I was completely unaware of the world of twilight, and once you find out about it, you discover it’s everywhere, with millions of fans...
