My buddy's wife saw it and loved it, he didn't really care. She was rambling on about how she had read the books, so she knew what was going on. I don't believe she can read, so I'm thinking she's full of shit.

Same here...had to get up at 10:45 and go to the 12:01 a.m. midnight showing...

Is sex in return for being dragged to a girly movie a good trade?

Yay. Another fucking movie about shitty ass vampires. We have vampires in the old days (Interview with the vampire, Bram Stoker, etc), modern day vampires (Blade), vampires with contrived accents (Van Helsing) and now fucking young adult vampires. Next I'm gonna make a movie about the struggles of paraplegic vampires. "Wheels of the Night" I'll call it.

Fuck this shit, I'd rather see a movie about lumberjacks.

Just more poorly written teenage romance novel crap given way more publicity than it deserves. As the author puts it, "it all came to me in a dream!"

There have been some excellent vampire films over the years. Several of my favorites include Near Dark, John Carpenter's Vampires and Willam Dafoe in Nosfaratu (sorry if misspelled)

Twilight just looks like some lame shit you'd see on the WB or UPN...

We went and saw this movie last night. It was okay, but coulds have been much better. Looked like a low budget movie.

BUT, the cool thing was that the High School they used for all of the exterior shots was literally my high school. When they first showed it I leaned over to Leah and said "that looks just like my high school".. Then a couple minutes later I realized it actually was.

It's in a really small town in WA, just north of Vancouver, WA, called Kalama. The parking lot they filmed in was one of the teacher lots. It was really trippy.

Well... let's put it this way, it's a movie about vampires, who don't actually have fangs, or drink blood. It's a "love story" between a vampire who's 200+ years old, obsessed with a 15 year old girl. 200+ and he's still in high school, by the way.

Oh, and what happens when the vampires go out in the sun?

That's right!

They SPARKLE!

It's a pre-teen newstand pap romance novel turned into a movie. Don't bother.

Lol.. The main guy is 100 or so, not two hundred, and the girl is 17. Other than that you are correct. Although near the end they do physically tear apart another vampire, including decapatating him.
