Cinema Sound Off

Welcome to Cinema Sound Off!

My good friend, KM Wilsher, and I are heading out to Harkins Theatres each month to watch a choice movie.

We’ll let you know if it’s worth you spending your hard-earned money or not.

Now…onto the movie.

Blurb from IMDB:

As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob

So, you had to know we’d review this one, right? It’s the latest craze. We quick saw it before I left for England so we could review it on CSO for ya!

My Review:

Oh boy. This breaks my heart to say, but I was somewhat disappointed.

I’m sorry. Really. I am a total Twilight fan, you know that. But, what the heck was up with all the corny wigs? Really. Even Bella Swan. . . looked like her hair was a wig. And Victoria? Ugh, first they have a different actress playing the part, but the hair is just too far gone. . . The worst, though, was Jasper. Why can’t he just have normal hair? His scene was just…well…stiff.

Total bummer.

I liked how they did the back story into the tribe and the wicked-awesome fighting scenes. Nice CG. Loved the wolves. Edward still looked constipated pretty much the entire movie which totally bummed me out. You know who I really liked, ALICE. Yep, she was wicked-awesome this one. Despite the wig….LOL.

Overall, I have to rate it pretty high still because the story was pretty true to the book and, well, I just really love Twilight.  It’s kinda like the books, I was able to overlook the over writing (come on, the books were WAY longer than they needed to be) because I was so invested in the characters. To me, that’s the most important thing while reading.

My rating:

4 tickets — See it and share it with a few friends

  1. Not a Twilight fan but I did go to see the movie. After New Moon I was expected to laugh and roll my eyes through most of this but I actually got into the story and mostly enjoyed it. A bit of clunky acting and the wigs were atrocious but neither of those were deal breakers. If I was in the mood for something quick and easy to watch in the background, I think this movie would fit the billl.

  2. Although it is ideal to have a space for your home theater, you can still enjoy the best of the movie house a small room in a picturesque home. The trick is to define the characteristics of your room to be used for fusion with electronics home theater in a comfortable position with the rest of the institutions. Here are some tips on how best to enjoy home theater in a room that resembles a spacious lounge.

  3. I too had issues with the movie, but not enough to dislike it entirely. I make concessions when I love a story as long as it doesn’t totally bomb on screen. Funny, I thought they tried to make Edward look more relaxed – he smiled more, had more facial expressions – looked handsome in the tent, imo. The inconsistencies btw movies are due to different directors for each. It is interesting to see the different visions flesh out on screen. Anyway, I’m rambling, and could go on forever since it’s one of my fave topics. 🙂 If interested, more on the subject on Dry Ground, my blog (then see sidebar). Have a great Tuesday!

  4. I’ll have to see the next one (or did they split that into two?), just to sate my curiousity. Curiousity did kill the cat, though. 😛

    I liked that one flashback about the girl vamp, but Jasper’s was pretty strange.

    After Eclipse, I like Edward less, and I agree that he still looks slightly constipated. haha

    Great Cinema Sound Off, guys!

  5. Whoo. Did you see what Jilll said? 🙂
    Well, Lynn, I agree with the wigs!!! I sure hope they do something about that for the last movies!

    And yes, Victoria, I am disappointed 🙂

    Great review, Lynn!

  6. I’m a Twilight fan as well but haven’t seen the movie and don’t plan on seeing it. I’ve read many reviews similar to yours that will keep me reading the books, but staying away from the theater. Happy Tuesday!
