Enough said: I watched it already. One of my most awaited movie that on the list. Received an invitation from Ray to watch and reviews about this movie make me feel so excited to joined.
Dont forget to catch up the latest romantic movie on your nearest screen.
TWILIGHT tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen, a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together...even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. Their unorthodox romance puts her in physical danger when Edward's nemesis comes to town and sets his sights on Bella.
Memandangkan english aku terlalu boombastic for you guys to understand, i think its better for me to review about this movie using my own simple word, rite? Have u seen The Covenant? If u do, u might think that this movie has some similar parts..the hidden family, the bad side..the good side.. super power, super strenght and sort of things. But reality, its totally different. If The Covenant about the family of witches who kept thier secret strongly, but Twilight is about the family of vampires who like to live as normal human being but indirectly still wants to keep their secret from reveal and try to live by their own. No human blood..No human meat. I just excited to quote a sentenced that has been told by Edward Cullen to his girl Bella, "we drink animals blood not human, same with human who like toufu, got the energy but dont feel that satisfaction" (if i'm not mistaken..)
Twilight has given me a different point of view. For the first time i heard about this movie, i thought its about a group of banshees or vampires who struggling to live and combat among themself to get thier own desires. In other hand, they falling in love with typical girl-next-door and try to control their desires. But, i'm totally wrong! Eventhough the movie is about vampires, but the facts is, it's about a love story. A true love. Seriously i kinda like this movie becuase the storylines and the plots was grabbed it nicely and beautiful. We might feel bored at first because surely we will expect Twilight should be more energetic. But, just remember its a romantic love movie and you wont spoilt the mood if there's to much battles.
Dont review about the acting because they already played well. Bella Swan, a daughter of divorced parentage who get confused with her own family problem and have to live with his father suddenly drawned to a boy named Edward Cullen, who is so mysterios was acted well by both Kristen Steward and Robert Pattinson. Not to forget, each characters also contributed to the succeed of this movie such as Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Ashley Greene as Alice and Kellan Lutz as Emmett.
Twilight is originally based on hits best selling fantasy novel written by Stephenie Meyer. And for me honestly, Meyer's did well with her own novel-turn-movie and showing us how beautiful this movie really are plus she also bring viewers to a great scenematography through this movie, and i adore it so much...
But the question is..is there any TWILIGHT 2..?? i do hope for the sequal soon..
- All of the actors playing the Cullens wear topaz-colored contacts.
- Taylor Lautner had to wear a wig for his role as Jacob Black.
- Over 5,000 actors auditioned for the role of Edward.
- Kristen Stewart has naturally green eyes. She wears brown contacts for filming because Bella is supposed to have brown eyes.
- The actors who played vampires needed to be pale, so it was written into their contracts that they had to stay out of the sun.
- Before casting, Robert Pattinson had never heard of the Twilight novel. He only attended casting because he liked Kristen Stewart'd perfomance in Into The Wild.
- Cameo: [Stephenie Meyer] The author of the original books can be seen next to a laptop ordering a vegetarian salad in the diner at the beginning of the scene where Charlie asks Bella if she likes the boys in town.
I Honourably give 3.5 stars for this movie. Congratulation!!
