  1.  A Real Visual Feast for TRUE Twilight Saga Fans...

    Posted: 

    I have just written almost the same review for New Moon so I thought I better come and say my piece about Twilight too, as I feel the same about this film as I do New moon!

    By True Twilight Saga fans I mean the folks who have read all the books more than once BEFORE seeing the films .... like me! I really hate to see the films berated for not being as good as the book ... a film is never ever going to be as good as the book - so stop expecting it to be so!!!

    As a massive & avid fan of the books (read 4 times each!) I absolutely loved Twilight (as I did New Moon!) for the simple fact that all the characters I had imagined, the world I had imagined came to life in front of me, and showed me a different perspective from my own imagination.

    Of course you can never fit everything in a film that is in the book, so you must forgive this! The film makers have stayed very true to the story, these are films that stay very close and true to the books - admirably so! The only holes are some parts from the book, nothing major, these are due to the fact that you cannot fit everything in - it would be impossible, as I said before! They got all the most important things from the book in the film, it was portaryed so, so well!

    This film is amazing, the effects are amazing, they have truly captured the raw emotion, the feeling, the angst of teenage love, true love in the face of adversity. It really has been brought to life in front of my eyes. The casting is unbelievable, Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson were born for these roles!

    I cannot wait for Eclipse and for my favourite... Breaking Dawn!!!

    I know all TRUE Twilight Saga Fans will agree with me completely and appreciate these films for what they are.

    Well done all round and thank you for making these films :o)

    Of course you can never fit everything in a film that is in the book, so you must forgive this - also please forgive the fact that Edward doesn't appear as much in New Moon - he does not appear much in the book!!! That is the whole point ... the angst of Edward leaving Bella, how she deals with this and turns to her friend Jacob for comfort and in turn discovers a whole new world she knew nothing about.

    This film is amazing, the effects are amazing, they have truly captured the raw emotion, the feeling, the pain, the confusion and the action of the book. It really has been brought to life in front of my eyes. The casting is unbelievable, Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson were born for these roles!

    I cannot wait for Eclipse and for my favourite... Breaking Dawn!!!

  3.  I am the newest Harry Potter fan...

    Posted: 

    My Husband or I have never been Harry Potter fans, have never been into the genre of fantasy books or films. Never read Harry Potter or seen any of the fims. My 9 year old Niece has always been a fan and when I saw the films 1-5 on Play.com for £14.99 I thought, at that price we might aswell buy it and see what all the fuss is about!

    We have absolutely loved the first 5 films! I expected to hate them as I usually hate anything like this - but I have thoroughly enjoyed the films, I found them exciting with excellent special effects and I can now see why adults and children alike love these films and books. JK Rowling has got some imagination I tell you! Just brilliant.

    We are planning to see the 6th film at the cinema very soon and my next project is to buy the books and read them all! I never, ever thought I would hear myself say that lol!

    Top marks!

  4.  Absolutely loved it !!!!!

    Posted: 

    I watched this at the weekend with my 9 year old Niece and I have to say I was expecting to hate it and was only watching it as my Niece wanted to see it, but I absolutely loved it!!! It was such a wonderful mix of adult and kids entertainment, with something in it for everyone. I found it really funny too, laughing at the jokes meant for the adults and also the jokes meant for the kids too! I really liked how it explored the comparison bewteen the wanting a fairytale life and "happy ever after" and the cynical view that there is no such thing. It was really refreshing actually and on some level makes you realise that you can have a bit of both in life and come out with a happy medium! After this film I felt happy and uplifted and I didn't stop smiling for an hour! :o) And by the way I am a 26 year old "Total Cynic" lol !!!

    You won't regret watching this and at play.com's prices, you'd be mad not to!! Buy it, sit back, open your mind and enjoy!
