It felt like forever waiting to see this movie. However it was worth the wait and I was super hesitant to see how it measured up to the book. Overall I was quite happy. Obviously they leave out a lot of detail in the movie, but they stayed very true to the book and I imagine that reviews would have ripped it apart if they changed the story line too much. To my surprise I thought Robert Pattison and Kristen Stuwart were great for their characters. I know everyone has them cast in their mind already and maybe they weren't the right depiction of Edward and Bella for them, but they work great for the movie. If Stephanie Meyer approved I can't argue too much becausse inevitably it is her dream and vision they brought to life.
So none the less I am overall happy and I was sad to hear it is getting some poor reviews.
I won't spoil anymore except to add that Edward IS Dreamy! Nothing will ever change that! Let me know what you think when you see it.

I'm on the same page as you! I mean, yeah you could definitely tell it was low budget, but I think they did a good job with what they had! I thought there were a few scenes with poor acting, but I wasn't too worried about that. I'm sure by the time they get to the 4th movie it'll be better! I thought Kristen and Robert did pretty good... but I was sad my favorite lines from the book weren't in there! They changed the heroine one, missed the "friends don't let friends drive drunk" and my ALL time favorite... in the hospital when he kisses her and the machine speeds up... I was sad that didn't happen! :( But I thought it was good. Most of my friends disagree but I agree with youu!

I agree!!! I loved it! I went knowing that it would never be as good as the book and because of that, I totally enjoyed it! I loved Bella, Edward was okay, I just think Robert is ugly! But I will definitely be seeing it again and making Jeffrey tag along!!!

I liked it too!!! Though, after seeing the movie... I think I'd pick Emmett over Edward! :)
