Are any of you actually as excited as I am to see this movie?







I've never read the book, unfortunately, but I'm a sucker for movies with fantasy characters such as vampires, warewolves, etc etc. I loved the Underworld movies, and have heard nothing but great things about "Twighlight" the book, so one can only hope the movie will be twice as good. The previews look fantastic! My only hope now, is that they make a movie out of the Alice Borchardt books "The Silver Wolf", "Night of the Wolf" and "The Wolf King".

Thats true, but sometimes in movies, the 5 min trailer shows the ONLY good parts in the movie, the rest of it is crap. So you spend your money to only see the parts that you already saw in the preview. Leaves me a bit pissed off.

A co-worker of mine has read all the books and can't wait to see the movie. She tells me the books are excellent.

Looks pretty good, but I'm ready for Quantum of Solace tomorrow. I'm not sure if I'll like Twilight anywhere near as much as I like the Underworld series.

i dunno if you can really compare twilight to underworld...just two totally different types of story. if i thought it would be just half as cool as underworld i would be there. seems like twilight is a love story. with vampires. not bad, just not for me...


just sayin....

There are 3 girls I know that are unhealthily obsessed with Twilight. Not as bad as the fans you would find on fan forums for it, but pretty bad. So, it's really gotten on my nerves. I have no desire to see this because it's purely a love story, and if there is anything I hate more, it's love stories. Love stories bring out a bitterness in me that I cannot even begin to explain.

I think the thing that annoys me the most is, one of these girls who is obsessed with it is one of my friends, and when normally she is very intelligent, it's like her IQ drops 50 points whenever anyone is talking about Twilight.

That's not true. When I get "excited" about "something" my IQ definately doesn't drop - my mouth just can't form words any more :p

I saw it last sunday with the wifey, not too bad of a movie, kinda cheesy. It was her third time seeing it, and she read all 5 books or something, shes lame.
