RE: Twilight
I bought the books about two and half months ago and since then, I read them about three times. They are just too good and finally, some vampires that are different and described with an original point of view. I have to admit I was one of the lucky ones who saw the movie at Leicester Square at the Premiere and to be honest, I was a bit disappointed at first.

Twilight
Having read the books, i'd say that the film is a severe dissapointment. Although for those out of you out there who haven't read the Twilight series then you're in for a treat. Some of the acting by Stewart was bland and robotic however on the whole she played her rold resonably well. The chemistry between the two actors only reaches skin deep and some of the special FX were poor, especially the part where Edward is running up the hill.
