"Twilight"

It's almost 3:30 a.m. -- we went and saw "Twilight" (Marilyn mistressmarilyn, Jessica pb_n_jam and me, that is) and really enjoyed it.

I think the casting is EXCELLENT. I loved Bella and Edward, adored Alice and found Carlisle fabulous... (Carlisle is one of my fave characters, actually.)

I'll avoid spoiling, but say that I felt it followed the book really well and was very engaging. One of the things I loved was the environment! I felt delighted to see the forest and hills and so on that are such an amazing part of living in the Pacific Northwest. Rain and fog and it was so 'homey' for those of us who live here. (smile)

I'll actually say that I'd recommend the film, whether you're a fan of the book (books) or not.

Well, I guess it's time to get ready for bed now!
