Twilight Drains The Box Office

Oh man was that title cheesy enough for you? I read these headlines and groan. But maybe i'm too picky.

I have a teenage daughter who has been counting down the minutes for Twilight and I have to admit her enthusiasm was catching. She begged to go to a midnight premiere but I knew better. I would not have dealt well with crowds of teens making a lot of noise so instead I took my daughter out of school early and we went before the high school ever got out.

Perfect timing.

The theater wasn't even half full and was fairly quiet. And I enjoyed the heck out of the movie. I haven't read the books so I didn't have to go in worrying about if the movie could live up to the book. I just got to enjoy the movie for what it was. A teen vampire flick.

Oh Edward Cullen where were you when I was 17? Or Jacob too...

Yes it was angsty but it was supposed to be. It was funny a lot too. The imagery was incredible and makes me want to pack up and leave the south and move right now to the Pacific Northwest. I love even more that it was directed by a woman on a shoestring budget (37M is shoestring to Hollywood anyways)

There are not enough paranormal romance movies out there. More often than not they might have a slight romantic element to them but they are far more horror than anything else.

If by chance any Hollywood types are out there listening...True Blood is a success...Twilight is a huge hit...Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series is patiently waiting for that Hollywood movie. Hurry please, make me some more, okay?

Hi! Eliza
I will admit I'd never heard of Twilight until the last couple of months. I decided to read the novel in anticipation for the movie. I could not put it down. I loved it. As for the movie ... OMG! Could I have some Edward please? I really enjoyed the movie, unfortunately I had the giggle/sigh crowd, but besides that it was wonderful.
Thanks for your blog.
Take care

Big Hugs,
