I know movies are never as good as books, and I tried not to get my hopes up but I was soooo disappointed! I have heard from a few people who loved it but I don't get it! Even the critics said it was better than the books! Better than the books?? The only reason it was somewhat entertaining was because of the books. As a Twilight fan I was able to enjoy parts of the movie but here are my reasons for not liking it:
1. It was so cheesey! I think the characters were good actors but it almost seemed to me like the director was making fun of it!
2. It didn't develop characters, or explain things well enough. I think that people who haven't read the books would be lost and confused and think the whole story is just dumb. I don't think anyone will be reading the books as a result of seeing the movie. (which is sad because they would love the books).
3. It seemed way too much like a low-budget movie. Tip: if you aren't going to spend the money to make special effects look somewhat real, then don't put them in (especially if they are not even in the book-like with the hopping from tree to tree sceene.) Which leads me to my last complaint...
4. "You better hold on spider monkey." Like Edward would ever say anything as dumb as that!

Let me know what you all thought!

I haven't seen the movie or read the books, so I won't comment on that, BUT:
Thanks for the recipe on your sidebar. It was a HUGE HIT at our Thanksgiving dinner.

Hey! Good to see you alive again! : )

I haven't seen the movie yet, I'm hesitant....

And I have to comment on the recipe too-one of our absolute favorites! We usually skip the pecans on top, but it is still just heavenly!
