I don't get the hype. I didn't really think it was all that great. I have not read the books. but I did like the scenery in the movie, beautiful woods and coastline.

Blasphemy! OMG, my stomach actually started hurting when I read that.
I refused to suffer thru the horrible writing that is those Twilight books, but I figured I'd give the movie a shot since my dad said it was so good.
Um, no. Most horrible movie I've seen in a long, long time. I was amazed that they could transfer the horribleness of the writing into movie format like that. Their ability to do so was the best part of the film, IMO. I was hoping I'd like the movie and it would inspire me to suffer thru the books, but no.
My four-year-old likes it, tho. That seems about the right age group for it, too.
. Atrocious acting! And what about the stupid nasal canula up by her eyes in one shot then down on her cheek the next. Up, down, up down.
LOVED the books. Ate em up.
I have mixed reviews about the movie. It was ok as a stand alone movie but I didn't feel it. I was constantly comparing the book and the movie and everything they left out. I also didn't get the feeling in the movie that they really expressed how hard it was for Edward to be around Bella. And then the love, it didn't feel that deep to me in the movie. When she flips out at the end saying never leave, it felt more like she was a lust crazed teenager rather than a more mature than usual in-love teenager. It just didn't feel "real" enough. It was also slow as heck.
I watched it twice, I really wanted to love it. Unfortunately I felt like it was butchered compared to the books. I kept thinking "If I didn't read the book this wouldn't make sense to me."
