I've been out of town for the last two and half weeks and didn't plan far enough ahead to have lots of interesting posts scheduled for my absence. I returned to a fairly clean house (had enough time to plan to clean before leaving) but am now catching up on all the laundry. Wow, two weeks worth of laundry plus the entirely full hamper that I left for later and it's still not done. Rather than attacking it non-stop I took a little bit of a break to check out the Twilight movie.
I've read the first two books and will get to the third one soon. You know it's always interesting to see a movie based on a book - especially if it's a book that I really enjoyed. Somehow I'm always a bit disappointed. Oh, don't get me wrong, the movie was pretty decent. It's just that I didn't feel the same intensity between Bella and Edward that you get from the book. I'm undecided whether this is purely on my part or whether the actors weren't 100%, or if they didn't have enough of the movie's time to devote to that before getting to the action of the book. I still walked out of the movie theater with an overall good feeling about the movie so it's not all that big of a deal. Still, when it comes to movies based on novels, my first love will always be the written form.
The soundtrack was enjoyable to hear. Oh and they did an outstanding job with the ballet studio scene. That did live up to expectations very well. If you're a fan of the series then go and see the movie. Let me know what you thought. Perhaps I'm being a bit too harsh. I do wonder if they already have plans for the sequel?
Okay, it's time to attack the laundry again so that this weekend can be devoted to more enjoyable pursuits. Maybe I can finish Verity now? :-)
