In my heart of hearts, I want this movie to be good. While I haven't read the books (yet!), I like vampire-y love stories as much as the next girl. And from what I've learned about the books and the author, the whole thing is pretty intriguing.
So this second look at the Twilight movie confuses me a little bit. As someone who's looking at it without the background of having read the books, the whole thing still has a made-for-TV quality about it. It isn't stirring or taunting, and the supposedly evil one is so not scary. So what's the deal? Why aren't they luring us newbies in with mystery, dread, a sense of longing, and that heady feeling of teenage lust? This trailer should make our romantic bubbles boil while scaring the bejeezus out of us.
Is this what you were expecting? Or are you a bit underwhelmed? The good news is, we have quite some time to be enticed by probably countless more trailers and clips before the movie opens December 12.
To see this new one for yourself and let me know what you think,
