Twilight - A Review

What exactly is so great about this movie?
Seriously... I swore I slept through half the movie...

Ok, I watched the movie just now. I know, way later than most people... After the movie, I understand why I didn't get caught up in the whole Twilight-Edward-Cullen-Bella-Swan thing...


The plot spells PREDICTABLE all over it (No, I didn't read the book). This story tells of a new girl, Bella Swan (Kirsten Stewart) arriving at a new town and falling in love with the local vampire, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) Then another vampire wanted Bella for dinner and the whole Cullen family protected her by racing her out of the town, only to have her running back to the villain to save her mum. Bella got hurt and here comes the hero... Edward saved the day and the movie ended in a very unsuccessful hanging cliff where Edward and Bella were kissing while the other vampire watched in silence, probably planning for a revengeful sequel.


The whole movie was set in a very gloomy environment. It looked like a thrashy imitation of The Covenant, minus the coolness. And seriously, Edward Cullen looked way too pale to be walking around and not arousing suspiscion. Bella must be seriously blinded by love. How can she go out with someone that looks like a walking corpse, with messy hair and pale, cold skin. But the movie did give ideas that took dating to a whole new level. Imagine laying on the wet grass while it is about to rain, or admiring scenery from a very very tall tree top, playing baseball in thunderstorm at inhumane speed, having the guy sneaked into your room and spent hours with you without daddy noticing... But the dialogue was a bit too cheesy for me...


And the soundtrack is pretty good too... Except that they miscredited some people. Robert Pattinson/Edward Cullen didn't write Bella's Theme. It was an original piece by Yiruma called River Flows In You. Shame on you, Robert. First you plagiarise Yiruma, then you wana record an album under the name of Edward Cullen, which is techinically a copyright of the Twilight's author.

Ratings : 5/10. Either you are so bored that you have no other movies to watch or you are in love with Robert Pattinson, or not, this might not be a good one to watch...
