Soooo, in less than 5 1/2 hours "Twilight" will be released on DVD... is anyone planning to purchase it?

I certainly won't be standing around Wally World at 12:01 a.m. with a bunch of teeny boppers, but I would like to see it. If my daughter wants it when I'm done, I'll have Mr. W. buy it for me this weekend. Otherwise, I'll just wait for Netflix. Cheesy

Saw it - won't buy it. It was OK (scenery was wonderful) but the book was much better. Bella was perfect but I thought they miscast Edward and Alice was not what I expected at all. Funny how you get these preconceived ideas when you read the book first. scratch

Heh. It was filmed in my neighborhood. Literally. The high school exteriors were of the h.s. in our itty bitty 1200-person town.

It's been so long since I read the book that I haven't held onto any notions of who looks like what... and I haven't read the rest of the series yet. I sure wish they'd put it in audio book format - I read probably 20 a-books to 1 print book. :angelic:

Tracy - that H.S. is really something to brag about. With the following that's grown up after these books I'm surprised you don't have an increase in tourism & teens stealing bricks off the building!! lol!

I "read" all 4 of the books on CD from my local library so they are available.

I skipped the filming, but kids from the high school were extras. As I understand it, they're actually building a replica of the h.s. & parking lot up in British Columbia so that they can "keep" the school but be able to shoot when they want to (not close school, streets, etc.). Well, that and it's cheaper to film in Canada. :char-129:

Mr. W. says it was not a mob last night (Wally World stayed open until 2 a.m. for the DVD release), but there were a LOT of teens and tweens. I told him to wait until Monday to pick up "my" copy, and he said this morning that he's not sure if there will be any left on Monday (before restocking).

Go figure. :roll:

I read the series and could hardly put them down. Not my usual reading material, but DD said it was good and insisted I read them...she had the whole set, so I took them and reluctantly started reading.... finished the total set in 4 days!!! Was disappointed when I finished the last one....wanted more....was very good, I thought. azn

I listened to the first three.... and was on the wait list for the fourth but I HAD to read it as soon as the third was done. HAD to! LOL! So I went and bought it. LOL! Of course, now, my request came up. LOL! I have the fourth one ready to listen to next week at work. HEHEHE I went today to see about the movie... I was wondering if it was going to be on Blu-Ray. It is, but not for a little while. I decided that since I had waited this long to see that movie, I could wait a little longer and get the version that I want. But, it will be hard, knowing that it is out there...... calling me..... hehehe

Well, I watched the 'Twilight' movie yesterday. I was disappointed Undesided there was so much that was left out of the book. I didn't like the actors, except Jacob...I could see where he would be a good wolf. I did not like Bella or Edward actors. The other Cullin's were okay.
Of course they only did the first book for the movie. So, I am sure they will try and do another movie as a sequel, especially after the ending.
Had I paid high $ to see this at the theater, I would have been upset. Just my opinion. big sigh

Woot! Based on this, Kris, I checked one of my libraries online catalog and found that they do have the Twilight books on CD! :yahoo:

I've put a hold on book 2 - I might get caught up after all!!

LOL! I am glad you found them! The wait list for the fourth was very very long! I was 64th in line when I requested it from the library. But I have it now. YAY!

Laura is in pig heaven, daddy bought her Life of Birds with David Attenborough, its a 3 DVD series and she is a documentary junkie, she wants to be a naturalist like David is she reckons, she also wants to be a gardener like Peter (well known garden identity here), she loves watching these 3 gardening DVDs we have too. With her being full up with this cold the Bird series is wonderful, she is loving it

Just last night the "big city" news ran a story about how there are 15-20 people visiting the High School every day - some from as far away as Germany. Of course, all the station did was show the stock footage from "Twilight" - heaven forbid they actually send someone to the town to talk to someone in person!!

I haven't noticed anything/anyone different in town - no obvious tourists with cameras hanging 'round their necks. :lol:

Of course, with the weather we're having that might not be so surprising. I wonder if the tourists will be 'as impressed' when it's not gloomy and all atmosphere-y in the summer... lol!

Yeah, it is funny how fans of movies or books don't let the real world be real...i.e. the people tht didn't like JR in Dasllas wouldn't even be nice to Larry Hagman when they met him in person....
