TWILIGHT: Book vs. Movie

Post Number:#1  Postby jenchocolate » 23 Oct 2008, 20:33

Twilight the Movie. Coming November 21. I'm excited to see it despite the worry that many scenes in the book were altered in the movie. Have you seen the final trailer? There are dialogues that are supposed to be in a particular scene, but in the movie, they were said in another scene.

I love the series. Honestly because I'm a vampire-story fan. Can't wait for Twilight in the silver screen.

What about you, guys? What do you expect in the movie? :?:

From the other movies that I have seen adapted from a book, books are far more better than the movie.

I agree. Just like what happened to "A Walk to Remember" and "Harry Potter"... But I have high hopes for this movie... That it would also give me the feeling I've felt while reading the book.

Given that Stephenie Meyer has helped out with the screenwriting, I think it's safe to say that the movie will stay pretty true to the book. :lol:

Vampire Stories

Post Number:#6  Postby KatKennedy88 » 02 Dec 2008, 01:19

I read fantasy novels but somehow I missed out on the fun of Twilight. But yeah, books are more in-depth than movies cuz movies have a time-limit. There is this one online novel I am OBSESSED with tho. It's called The Phoenix Warrior by Emorah Slaytron. You guys should google it or follow the link given. It has vampires too by the way...

I just saw the movie and seems contented with the flow. But for me, still the book best illustrates the whole scenario.

I think the movie could have been longer... maybe added more parts that were left out, but that's just me. I think the best thing about the movie that couldn't be put in the book was the baseball scene :o The music that went to it was spectacular! Muse is awesome and its also one of Meyers' favorite bands (thought I'd add that little tidbit). As for the over all movie, it wasn't as spectacular as the book; I hope New Moon is better because they'll have many chances to put in lots of emotion :D

The movie was a complete disaster. The refernces to the book were taken and adapt to what ever they felt like making. I hope to God that the other movies that they are coming iut with will be better than that crap i went to see, it was a total waste of 8 bucks. The lighting was good for it being a vampire movie and all, but th character choice was all wrong for the frieand she had in high school. The part with Edward taking off his shirt and everything complete foolishness.

I think the book is better than a movie created by this book

Read the book. Skip the movie. Simple equation.

i like the book as compared with the movie, as the book has certain details that are not included in the movie, though i like both versions :D
