Any time a film comes within a few days of its theatrical release and we still have yet to see any official review for it, I can only assume it sucks. While I don't want to upset anybody, this happens to be the current case for Twilight , which has yet to release a single official review.
To substitute, how about a screening report?
Twilight Screening Report
The good people at AICN have posted a screening report for Twilight so full of spoilers I could only get through the first couple of paragraphs before looking away.
As a fan of the books (yes, I’ve read all four and did so in less than a week. I know, I have no life), I knew that a lot would have to go to make the movie short enough to fit into a teenager’s attention span. On that, I believe the writers, directors and other staff of the film succeeded. There were some problems with pacing, but I’m getting ahead of myself.
Oh, and just to warn you, I’m liberal on spoilers, so fans and non-fans alike: BEWARE.
Firstly, the casting department did their duty in finding people who captured the essence of the characters, if not the exact look every person who read the books concocted in their own minds.
Kristen Stewart reads like a dream. Her inflections during narration and voice over never come off as though she’s reading a script. Rather, you feel like the confession flows off of her lips before she can properly retrieve and destroy it.
And that's when the spoilers begin. For those of you who don't mind having the film partially ruined, read on.
