I personally could watch Twilight over and over again. It’s just one of those stories that I don’t seem to get bored with, no matter how many times I see it. I’ve been thinking about why someone wouldn’t like this fantastic move. I can only come up with 5 reasons you may not like the Twilight movie, so here they are:
5. It Isn’t Solely from Bella’s Point of View
The book is written from Bella’s point of view, but the movie had to include more speaking parts for other characters, in order to make it fit together better. It’s one thing to read something in first person and a completely different feeling to try and make a movie solely from a first person point of view.
4. Scared of the Outcome
There have been some movies made off of books that have been a huge success. Sometimes I don’t want to see the movie at all, due to fear of a botched job being made of the book. I can’t stand to have a good storyline ruined, just because Hollywood thinks it needs to be spiced up a bit.
3. You Didn’t like the Book
Chances are if you didn’t like the book, then you’re not going to like the movie either. It’s very rare that the movie is better than the book. The only example I can think of is Princess Bride. The book is extremely long and boring, but the movie is tons of fun!
2. Missing Parts
The book is always going to be more descriptive than the movie, no matter what. I did have my doubts when it came time to see Twilight the movie. I’d read the book and had all the details in my head, just the way I wanted them. I was leery about watching the movie, since I knew all the images I already had would be instantly replaced with scenes from the movie.
1. The Actors
Not everyone feels that the actors in the movie look close enough to the way the characters are described in the book. I think the actors in Twilight fit the descriptions in the books very well. I did picture Edward as being taller, Jacob as being more massive, and Alice as being tinier. Other than that, I think the actors were well chosen.
I’m sure people who strongly dislike Twilight in general will have other reasons, besides the ones I’ve listed. However, please feel free to leave a reason on what you didn’t like about the movie. Did you think all the actors portrayed the characters from the book correctly? Was there anything missing that you hoped would be in the movie?
