Last night, I broke my personal rule of not seeing a movie adaption without reading the book first. Yes, I am talking about the Twilight frenzy. I joined my bestfriend saw the movie on its first day of showing.
My sister promised to give me the entire set of the series as she wanted me to read the book so badly. According to her, the series is that good, and I should not miss the chance of not reading it. Awww... that's so sweet of her.
So I won't look like a clueless fool, I researched a bit about the story, and the characters. In the moviehouse, Neyza and I were surrounded by teenage girls swooning over the lead actor, Robert Pattinson. I just braced myself for what I was about to see on the big screen.
There had been mixed reviews about the movie adaption. My dearest sister phoned just before to get my assurance that I would still read the books even if I find the movie disappointing. She saw the movie ahead of me. She's a diehard Twlight fan.
Well, the movie did not disappoint me at all. I was instantly a convert. I could not wait to get my hands on the book. Hmm... I think I better hold the reading off until I get settled in Cebu as there is no way I'd get to finish packing if I do start with the series. I hear it's a page turner.
Twilight brings you into the world of vampires. While many people are misinformed that the movie is a gory one, it is a love story between a vampire and a human.
Do not get me started on the character of Edward Cullen. The character took me breathless.
Scruffy gorgeous men have always been my type. Let's just say that Edward's character is what I used to dream about when I was younger. Twilight brought back the feeling of giddiness, or the very apt Filipino word is kilig.
Now I have been persuading those I can to go see the Twilight movie.
