I'm off to see it in a mo with a huge crowd of 14/15 year old girls plus my 13 & 16 year old sons (they're likely to be outnumbered :) ). I can't wait - I love the books 8)

Saw it last night and the general reaction seems to be that it is awesome, and I have to agree!
Cinema completely packed and even though we were there about half an hour early, there was a massive queue to get into the screen and we ended up having to sit at the front!
I dont know about at other places, but at our showing the majority of the audience were doing a heck of a lot of screaming (and with good reason- its a film with Taylor Lautner AND Rob Pattinson :D :D), which did mean that some bits of dialogue were missed, but at the same time, it really added to the atmosphere .

Of course little bits of the book were missed out, but overall they did a pretty good job with it, and its a bit of a must see if you ask me :D

I enjoyed it but couldn't say it was brilliant but there were some very good parts. :D

Edward was a wee bit too tortured (oh Rob where did your smile go?! :( ) but it made the break up scene all the more heartbreaking

The 11-12 yr olds liked it but weren't too dazzled.

It stayed true to the book and there were some good laughs too

Will have to see it again though! ;)
Maybe sneak out on my own... :-$ :oops:

Well I really enjoyed myself - and we were fortunate that the girls kept pretty quiet - barely any screaming at all (thank goodness) - just a bit of cheering when the lads first came on screen. A bit of giggling in parts tho :lol: - for some reason whenever Aro spoke... he did come across as a bit amusing rather than a bit scary as I felt he was in the book.

I have now seen this! I loved it, i thought it was really good, maybe because i went in with low expectations or maybe because it really was good. Either way i think it was better than Twilight, and the acting is considerably better. What a difference a director makes huh?
And Jacob looks amazing!! :)

The Twilight films are strictly for fans of the books.
Both books and films can be enjoyed many times over by all ages.

I went with my 18 yr od DD - we are both fans of the book. We thought it was very funny in the cinema when Jacob took off his shirt - you could hear a sharp intake of breath from every female in the audience :lol: :lol: :lol:
