Twilight!

Well, Pia and I went with a bunch of other girls and saw "Twilight" this weekend... So I figured I'd write about that since I did nothing else except work and clean the house this week.

Overall, it was much better than I was expecting - I was kinda figuring it was going to be wretched, since I had such a soft spot in my heart for the book and it was made on the cheap with basically no-name actors and director. But it turned out to be funny (perhaps unintentionally at times, but that was okay with me), cheesy, sweet, and a much better-paced story than in the book which was good... They changed quite a bit of the rhythm of the story which was much-needed. So I'd give it a thumbs-up and will probably see it again... And the boys are all ridiculously hot (even if the guy playing Jasper - one of the vamps - looked like he was either trying not to cry or take a dump the whole time)... :)

I have nothing to say re Twilight, but do love your K Pilk quote, and also agree with your opinion re Office Season 5, it is so funny this year.

Laurie said...

oh also, the book you are reading, didn't I give that to Rotch a couple of years ago? Need to know if it's as funny as the title sounds!

Katie said...

it is pretty funny, i don't think Rotcher has read it yet... and i LOVE that Karl quote, it is classic K.Pilk! :)

for sure, that is exactly why I love the man. And if I ever do move to England, I am going to find a place in his neighborhood so we can be bff.

The top guy, what's his name? Is so NOT hot. WTF people... guy on bottom looks pretty cute. I haven't seen his pic yet.

Pia said...

The picture doesn't do him (Robert Pattinson) justice Lis. The guy on the bottom is incrediably hot though. He is one of the new Christmas Gap ad models. So beautiful.

You did not give me that book mom, but I do want to read it.

Laurie said...

well I meant to, does that count?

Katie said...

oh yeah Lis, "guy on the bottom" is ridiculously hot- he plays the bad vampire in the movie. his name is Cam Gigandet (or something like that) and he is SO hot in the Gap ads...

Is this the book where the last chapter is the first chapter of the next book?

That question was unintelligible unless the answer is "yes."

(ps - sorry i txt flaked the other night, phone died...)
