The Twilight Movie

Twilight is a young adult vampire-romance novel written by author Stephenie Meyer. It was originally published in hardcover in 2005. It is the first book of the Twilight series, and introduces seventeen-year-old Isabella "Bella" Swan who moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to Forks, Washington, and finds her life in danger when she falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen. The novel is followed by New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.

Twilight has been adapted into a film by Summit Entertainment. The film was directed by Catherine Hardwicke and stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as protagonists Isabella Swan and Edward Cullen, respectively. The screenplay was adapted by Melissa Rosenberg. The movie was released last November 21, 2008.

The Plot- Seventeen-year-old Isabella "Bella" Swan moves to the small town of Forks, Washington, to live with her father, Charlie. There, she finds herself drawn to a mysterious classmate, Edward Cullen, who is revealed to be a 108-year-old vampire, but is physically seventeen. Although Edward discourages the romance at first, they soon fall deeply in love. When the arrival of three nomadic vampires, James, Victoria, and Laurent, puts Bella's life in danger, Edward and his family, Alice, Carlisle, Esme, Jasper, Emmett and Rosalie, put their lives at stake to save her.

*I've watched the film with my kid, we both enjoyed the movie. Although some say that the book is much better than the movie version. I still give it a 3 star for my rating for the effects and the story-line. Maybe the actors' (both Bella and Edward)performance would improved on the next movie.

I loved reading the book. The movie wasn't perfect but I enjoyed watching it. Edward stole my heart the moment he entered the cafeteria. :)

Two things: if one has read the book, chances are there are disappointments.

If one has not read the book, then there would be endless questions about the storyline.

One thing is sure for me though, Rob didn't disappoint :)

i don't understand what is the appeal of Robert Pattinson (Edward); he has an unusually shaped nose
