I'm an addict.

OMG THIS IS THE MOST HORRIBLE THING EVER. I DIDN'T GET TO THE BOOKSTORE IN TIME TO BUY NEW MOON! BUT I WENT AHEAD AND READ THE FIRST CHAPTER AT THE BACK OF TWILIGHT ANYWAY! AND NOW I DON'T HAVE ANYMORE AND NOW I'M GOING THROUGH WITHDRAWAL! AND THEY KEEP SHOWING THE TRAILER ON TV AND famouslyso LINKED TO THIS INCREDIBLE PICSPAM AND NONE OF IT IS HELPING MY ADDICTION. ALSO I DON'T HAVE ANY REAL FOOD IN MY HOUSE AND HAVE BEEN CONSISTING OFF OF MOSTLY COOKIES WHICH IS ALSO NOT HELPING. I MADE A GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ME!?

Okay, clearly I've finished reading Twilight and clearly I've gone insane. lyndasty is tempting me with PDFs of New Moon but I must resist! I have so much to do before tomorrow! So much wrapping to do! I can't bring myself to do it... my hands... are like... I don't know. They are stiff and hurt and my manicurist is going to kill me tomorrow I'm pretty sure when she sees them. But yeah, not feeling wrapping anything with them right now. I'm sort of dreading washing my face for bed... even though I need to go to bed because I need to sleep because I have so much to do tomorrow!

So since I finished Twilight... the movie. Yeah, I think they actually did a pretty good job representing the book. I mean, the book is better than the movie, but they always are. I think the book is more romantic, more emotional, more intense than the movie. Which is kind of surprising because I really do think the movie tries to overdo it with the intensity which makes it all sort of comical. I think the key to enjoying this movie is to not take it too seriously... but really how can you with Carlisle strutting about. *g* The movie is flawed, but Kristen Stewart is so beautiful that I can forgive that. I think she's a spectacular Bella. However, I think they could've found a better Edward Cullen. Or written him better? Or he could've been acted better? I don't know, Edward is just so charming and *perfect* maybe it's not possible to find someone to play him. He was usually coming off as either wrist-cutter emo, mildly retarded, or constipated. Not really charming. But do I have this insane desire to go see the movie again? Absolutely. Did I ask my boyfriend today if he would change his last name to Cullen? You betcha.

Yep, I have a problem. And I think I should probably just go to sleep now before I incriminate myself further. Later, skaterz.

*insert maniacal laugh* But you love me!!!

As far as Edward in the movie...I think a lot of that has to do with how Rob was directed and how the character was adapted into the screenplay from the book. I have serious issues with Melissa Roseberg's adaptation of Twilight and I'm hoping she doesn't completely butcher New Moon but I'm not holding my breath.

I agree, I don't think it was Robert's acting. I really do think that overall they did a decent job of the book, better than I can say for most adaptations I've seen anyway.

Overall the adaptation of the book to the movie was good...my issues are nitpicky ones. Plus, I've heard scary tales of Melissa Rosenberg's plans for adapting New Moon so I'm scared.

I just watched this movie yesterday but didn't know anything about it beforehand. I really liked it and I'm so excited to hear there are books!!! Is there a pdf available for Twilight? I'm off to search.

lol! If it makes you feel any better, I wasn't quite obsessed enough to get up at the crack of dawn, out of bed earlier than I had to to buy the next book.

Oh, Laura, I so love you! <3

As far as Robert's portrayal of Edward goes, I do think a lot of that was very probably in the direction he was given but I have no way of actually PROVING that. And of course there is that whole 'nobody could ever be as perfect as Bella percieves Edward to be', because really, his perfection is completely filtered through Bella's lense as far as the book goes.

Oh I agree that a lot of it seemed to be from the direction. I don't think that Robert is a terrible actor at all, I think he portrayed Edward the way he was told to, I just don't think it was good. lol But, so very true... we don't get as much of a Bella filter in the film. Good point.

Yeah, I don't know, some parts I really liked him and other times it really bugged me so *shrugs* I think that lack of seeing everything directly through Bella's eyes probably has something to do with why he comes across as so different, too, though... because from the outside, objective perspective the constant telling her what to do and stuff comes off as what I hope is a lot worse than Meyer ever intended. Bella's hopelessly in love so she blindly trusts him, right or wrong. I've put WAY too much thought into this now that I'm working back through the book after seeing the movie. The fact that we're not seeing him exactly as Bella sees him in the film version definitely can't be discounted, though.
