As much as I like the book and the movie, my thoughts on the Blu-Ray were
average. I didn't get the intended “WOW, OMG HD” factor as I usually do
when watching a Blu-Ray movie. Nonetheless, I do enjoy the movie, just probably
think before you buy “..is it reeeaaally worth it on Blu-Ray-”
I don't know what I expected. The books are being snapped up by teenage
girls around the world. Being a huge fan of vampire movies such as Blade,
Underworld and being a proud owner of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer boxset,
I was not about to let the “teenage girl” thing put me off. And I am glad
Without saying too much, the movie offers little action for blood and gore
loving movie goers…and yet the atmosphere is intense. You could possibly work
out from the cover-art and the Paramore hit Single “Decode” video, that this
is a love story so that's not giving anything away. Twilight really is a moving
and yet torn tale between an immortal and a human, with new "vamp” rules added
to the mix (as mentioned in a previous review; the skin sparkling in the
sunlight instead of burning…because THAT's a true story folks and this is
made up…hello this is a MOVIE people!) this is new material and worth a watch.
Each character is important to the story and the two main roles Bella Swan
(Kristen Stewart – Zathura, Panic Room) and Edward Cullen (Robert
Pattinson – “Cedric” in Harry Potter) are played out perfectly, each
actor fitting the roles like a glove. Bella is your typical teenage girl with
self esteem issues, just moved in with Dad, and embarks on a new college in a
new town, and on her first day finds that she seems to repulse this mysteriously
pale student. Little does she know…
I watched this with a fellow male friend and he was expecting an action
movie and therefore was a little disappointed. I hesitate to call this a chick
flick simply because it takes things slowly. You have to remember this is the
first, in a series of (potentially) four movies, so the characters need to be
fleshed out fully for the next instalments to make sense. Trust me, I have read
ahead (sorry but I have) and there is plenty of action on the way.
If you are like me, and enjoyed the Buffy and Angel relationship/tension
more than the Buffy and Riley standard boy/girl stuff, then you will enjoy this
movie. I am a straight married man, and Kristen Stewart is attractive in every
sense…but I am sorry to say; Robert Pattinson stole the show with his
brooding intensity and ridiculous good looks.
If the movie does nothing but gets you reading Stephenie Meyer's Twilight
series, then that's more than most movies I've watched have achieved.
Whatever the merits of Twilght as a movie I cannot recommend this movie in
Blu-ray. The sound problems have been documented (DD5.1 not True HD) but the PQ
looks like a poorly upscaled DVD.
This seems to be borne out by the format of Menus with about 30% missing off
to the left of my 16×9 TV.
Buy the DVD instead
Although the disc's case and the website indicate that this Blu-ray disc has
a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, the disc does not in fact include one. The only
audio tracks, apart from a director's commentary, are Dolby Digital 5.1 and
PCM stereo. There is no lossless (TrueHD/DTS-HD MA) or uncompressed audio to be
found. I doubt this will be a significant concern for the film's target
This is going to be a classic for the modern times. It will be the new Romeo
If you liked the movie you must read the books. This is a collection for all
Recommend to all but guys remember this is based on a love story so dont
expect to much violence. That should be in the last two.
This is a Horrible book Twilight by Stephenie Meyer She is a horrible writer
all twilight is a horrible Romance book
The story has no depth the romance is questionable firstly he falls in love
with a plain simple not very beautiful character why? I don't know either
there seems no connection and no Reason for the two to be in such a
relationship they hardly have any romantic gestures in it.
it doesn't follow the idea's of Vampires Edward shines in the sun instead of
burning up into flames which is ridiculous.
Characters aren't introduced properly and the whole story is Idiotic
One of the worst vampire movies ive ever seen I highly recommend not seeing
it if your a fan of a “good” vampire movie
