For months now, even close to a year, there has been a sort of frenzy about the movie Twilight. Girls are swooning over Edward Cullen, played by new heartthrob Robert Pattinson, and teens and adults alike are hopping on the Twilight bandwagon. There are so many marketing strategies used to promote the film, and everywhere you look, t-shirts, posters and many other knick-knacks are available. At first, I was skeptical about the film; I thought of it as a wannabe Harry Potter and wasn't willing to read the books. But recently, my friend brought the DVD over and we really enjoyed watching it. The special effects are amazing; its so cool how they can make the vampire's lightning speed seem so real. Also, the lighting in the film is really unique and contrasts the character's skin color well ( the vampires are supposed to be really pale). Overall, the movie was excellent, and I would recommend it to anyone teenage and above!
