I am a huge Twilight fan! I have been since 2008 when I picked up the first book and was HOOKED! I started them in August of 2008, a few months before the movie came out in November 2008. I had never heard of Twilight and new nothing of the movie being made. I would literally stay up until midnight reading and wake up at 5 a.m. and read before heading off to work. All housework ceased to exist and all I did was read. This was about the time we had a hurricane pass through southeast Louisiana, Gustav, and I was hunting down Eclipse as I was winding down on New Moon. Knowing I could possibly be with out power and businesses closed for at least a week or so I could not go into this hurricane without knowing what happened next! So while most were gathering water, non-perishables and batteries, I was hunting for Eclipse!
New Moon the book was my least favorite, mainly because *spoiler* Edward leaves Bella! Only for her own good... but there was so much Jacob in the book and lets face it, we all want her with Edward! (I'm obviously Team Edward) But the movie was really good... just enough Jacob and they kept Edward present. Of the books made to movies, this one is the closet of them all with the exception of how Edward described being away from her as a moonless night and the vote. I wanted to see Edward destroy the flat screen!
Twilight the book is probably my favorite, the movies is one of my least favorite. There are so many things left out and things that were added that it just kind of made me sad. There were so many things I felt they did right and looked great, like the baseball scene being my favorite! But they left out one of my favorite scenes, the "blood typing scene" and how James was the reason Alice is a vampire, because she has no memory of how she came to be. But the movie sill conveyed the same thing and elicited the same feelings I had for the book with the movie.

The imprint scene was wonderfully done! I loved how they did the sequence of her from baby to adult, it was perfect to me! the way it ended was exactly how I thought it would... to line up with the second Bella point of view from the book. Really the movie was great and I understand the reasoning of breaking it up into two separate movies. The book encompasses so much and there are really two climatic events, so they dealt with one in part one and the other will be dealt with in part two. So, if you haven't seen it, go see it and stay until the credits role... If you have seen it, what did you think???
