"Twilight" was a great movie! We waited in line for an hour and I couldn't believe the number of people that came out to support/see this movie! The energy (in line) was incredible and I enjoyed the style of this show. The leading man (who is a vampire) has so much inner conflict - do I bite, do I love, do I tell her what I am, do I ...?! Poor thing! I think that's what makes love stories so appealing ... that inner conflict. All the famous love stories have it. Conflict. (Say that outloud - CONFLICT).

I've been bitten by the "Twilight" hype and am going to start reading the books!
Cheers to Stephenie Meyer for writing such a captivating story :) ....

It was pretty great, wasn't it!
How were your seats? I'm glad I let you know about the hour early thing. I wrote that as soon as I got home.
The books are even better than the movie and I just finished the third after reading the first last Friday. I held off reading them because everybody was doing it. I didn't want to be a follower and the blurb of the book doesn't sound as good as it is.

NaDell, we had great seats! My son, Kade, and I met Tory out at the theater - he had class last night (Back to being a student) :)!! The hour wait was a good move. There were SO many people there... very fun!! I love a crowd!! I read so many books this one just didn't fit into the 'line-up' but I'll find time for it :) ...

I didn't really care for the book, but I still want to see the movie. I hear that it's quite an experience because the audience gets very involved. Kind of like Rocky Horror.

Rebecca - The gals in our writer's group don't care much for the book. I've heard mixed reviews. I need to just grab a copy and make my own opinion of it :) As for the movie - it was FUN! Sold out and lots of audience involvement. I love that aspect of going to the theater. Laugh...jump...cry... all together!!

Sorry, I can't go yay too since I'm not into the series, but it sounds like you had a great time!

I just stumbled upon your blog when scrolling through Blogger and I needed to comment. :)

You should most definitely read the rest of the Twilight series, it's captivating!

I love your blog!
