Do you dare to experience the world’s most addictive vampire-human romance? Check out the movie Twilight, as Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling teen novel comes to life on the big screen.

Twilight, the Movie

Whoever says ‘don’t judge a book by its movie’ can certainly do so with Twilight. Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling book tells the story of a vampire and a human girl struggling to survive a deadly romance. And the movie could not be better. The film is jam-packed with action, from thunderous baseball games to violent vampire battles. And best of all, they didn’t use a green screen, so all the amazing stunts and special effects are real.

Naturally, there are parts of the book that didn’t make it on screen, as well as scenes in the film that never happened in the book. But these changes only make the movie that much more exciting. The intense action, the dreary setting and most importantly the casting were perfect.

Casting Pressure

When the movie was first announced, Twilight fans put a lot of pressure on the casting directors to find the perfect characters—specifically the perfect Edward. And when Robert Pattison landed the role of the bronze-haired beauty, most of the fans were angry. But it didn’t take long for girls to warm up to his uniquely chiseled bone structure and his cute, yet fake, American accent.

The Perfect Actors

Pattison, best known for his role as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, is everything Edward Cullen should be: mysterious, dangerous and irresistibly attractive. And his co-star, Kristin Stewart, plays a brilliant, yet perhaps too pretty, version of Bella. The chemistry between the two actors is undeniable. They capture every feeling, every emotion and every bit of death-defying passion that Stephenie Meyer created in her story.

The Ultimate Question

It all comes down to the ultimate question: which is better, the book or the movie? The answer, after a long, thoughtful pause, is “I can’t decide.” The film has every ounce of magic, danger and passion that the book has. And just like the book, the film will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. You’ll want…no, you’ll need to see it again because that little taste of undying love will leave you craving more.

Twilight Rating: 5

I watched Maze Runner today. I gotta say, I was pretty impressed with it. I have watched the Hunger Games as well (this IS the movie section, after all). At this point, I prefer the Maze Runner (movie-wise), but both books were amazing too!

Honestly, that's quite hard. I've watched both movies and loved both of them equally. Maybe Divergent a teeny bit more. Still, Hunger Games and Divergent are both trilogies, so there's plenty to look forward to, movie wise!
