Hmmm...AWKWARD!

Just watched TWILIGHT.

Was it just agonizingly awkward for anyone else?


Also, could they have possibly found a glitter for Edward that looked slightly less gay??


That is all.

I'm gonna watch it, but I'm afraid I'll hate it...

I spent a lot of time laughing. I don't think they intended for it to be a comedy. Awkward lines. Awkward acting. And don't even get me going on the ~*~glitter~*~.

Wait, are you saying it wasn't an *intentional* joke? I laughed the ENTIRE time.

Plus, nice–um, livejournal quasi-illiterate here. Is that thing called an icon, where Buffy is staking Edward? Because awesome.

No self respecting gaiboi would have worn that crappy glitter. ;)

Worse than the glitter, was the tinkly "I'm shaking my car keys" sound effect WHEN he glittered. ^_^

I was 100 percent agonized. But you already could have guessed that. ;-)

Awkward is a great word for it. I totally understand why they went with another director for the sequels.

That was the best worst line ever!

I still love the movie, even though it is hilariously awkward. Any time biting or sucking is depicted, I laugh really hard - and I think they were going for "intense", not "ow - I pulled a side muscle laughing" during the fight scene, but it is what it is.

Haha, that line, and the line in the forest where he's like "say it! I want you to say it, OUT LOUD!" were just... oy. And the "you know your mood swings are giving me whiplash." Wow there are a lot of bad lines in that movie :-P

The acting is like...the same.

If not better.

My friends and I giggled a lot. We were with a lot of screaming teenagers and I felt bad, but I couldn't help it; it was SO funny. Sometimes unintentionally.

My friend and I giggled.

Of course, we also giggled at Hero. I don't think that was a comedy either.

"I can read every mind in this room apart from yours. Just money, sex, money, sex...cat."

Total Twilight gold, Mandy! But I do agree with you on the glitter...

If you check out the commentary on the DVD you'll find Rob (Edward) very much in agreement with you.

I felt awkward for the first 5 minutes, until they got to the scene where we "meet" the vampires for the first time in the cafeteria. Then I couldn't stop laughing.

The glitter was ridiculous, though. I mean, the concept in the book is ridiculous, too, but there was just something about seeing it on a movie screen...

I LOVE the movie. I can't even describe HOW or WHY (OK RPattz is HOT), but I can't stop watching it.

Oh yes, the glitter scene was hilarious. And the flying scenes. And the fact that Edward and Jacob are both weird looking. And the "We shouldn't be friends" thing... then get the eff away from me! Oh, and Bella is even more annoying in the movie; if I went to school with her I woulda punched her.

I'm going to watch it again tonight. All I know is I thought there was actually no chemistry between them at the beginning of the movie. I asked some eleven years olds what they thought. They agreed.

This is absolutely hilarious. I just finished watching the movie and I check out your blog and you reflect my thoughts exactly. I never read Twilight but both of my sisters did and they both kept talking about the glitter scene. When I saw it though, I thought it looked more like he was twitching than glittering.

Mr. Jen and I tried watching it last night, but we shut it off in favor of sleeping. I didn't want to laugh at the movie, but I did, especially during the woods scene where Edward glittered.

Yeah, I didn't love the movie-but then again I didn't love the books either. I thought the glitter/sparkly thing made him look icky and sweaty-it was so gross and not at all attractive. Also, there were times that the pale makeup stuff was too pale-especially on Carlisle!

It's got some shmaltz to be sure... but it IS true to the book- I think it's funny how some of the Twi-hards of the world complain about how cheesy the movie is but seem to believe that Bella fainting in Edward's arms when he kisses her in the book is some pretty serious stuff. I personally don't think the movie could have been done much better... I LOVE Catherine Hardwicke. But to each their own.

I think the problem is that they were afraid teh cult-like following of TWILIGHT books would revolt if they changed much.

When you think about the most successful movie adaptations, they typically change a lot to make it more suitable for film. Things that sound fabulous in books simply dont always translate.
