A-twitter About Twilight!

I don't know if it was the hundreds of girls screaming every time Edward, (The Lead Vampire Guy) came onto the screen; or perhaps it was the fact that I was so ready for a new and exciting movie; either way, Twilight Delivered. The lamps dimmed and the stage was set. First, we were greeted with the new trailer for J.J. Abrams Star Trek. This of course was incredible. After a few flashing trailers, the lights went out completely and the tumult of females screaming filled the cramped and crowded theater. It was like Star Wars, or Lord of the Rings but hundred times more energetic.

At first, I didn't understand the infatuation. I didn't understand why this story was so compelling. I still don't but apparently, Edward is such a seductive character he somehow leapt off the page and had come to rest in the heart of every bubbling little girl. In short, it was an experience. I know this is a little late as the movie has been out for a while, but I am entering finals and haven't had time.


  1. Sean - this movie was a kick, I found myself thinking about old Edward this morning. The author has taken all vampire weaknesses and eliminated them. (They aren't supposed to be in sunlight) Every girl in that theater would have become a vampire on the spot if Edward chose them. I think Edward could have given Elvis a run for his money.

  2. I'm going to have to see this movie, I hear Kasey is one of those screaming girls...

  3. Drew loved it. Gennifer and Drew read the entire series and loved the books too. I tried to read the first one, while at Bass Lake, but couldn't get it findished. It isn't that I didn't like it. I dropped it in the water a couple of times, and every time I picked it up to read, I immediately fell asleep.
    I want to see the movie!
