When I read the first three Twilight books I thought they were decent enough and I enjoyed the time I spent reading them. I was excited about the fourth one and went to the midnight release party. However, I was sorely dissipointed in it. There were many aspects of Breaking Dawn that I disliked, but I am not going to discuss them right now. I saw the Twilight movie when it came out and was unimpressed with both Kristen Stewart’s acting and Catherine Hardwicke’s directing. I enjoyed the movie overall because I had enjoyed the book. I realize that the movie can never even come close to the book.
There has been this on-going argument between Harry Potter fans and Twilight fans that occasionally makes me mad but most of the time I just find it hilarious. If I had to pick I would without a doubt pick Harry Potter, but I prefer to say that people can easily be fans of both.
I saw New Moon a few days ago with a few of my friends. Being the die-hard Harry Potter fan I am, I decided to wear my Team Lupin shirt, which was clearly designed after the Team Jacob shirts. I felt somewhat rebelious as I sat in a theater full of teenage girls wearing Team Edward and Team Jacob shirts. However, no one besides my friends noticed it.
The movie itself was far better than Twilight. The scenes were less choppy, everything flowed together, and the fact that Taylor Lautner was shirtless throughout most of the movie just made it all the better. There were also quite a few funny and witty lines, something that Twilight was severely lacking.
