Howling at the New Moon

The 'Twilight' movie that came out became an occasional topic of conversation (at least for my group of friends) all the way up till today. Usual banters about the movie would always be how good it was and how crappy it was. It was always the feud between the 'Twilight' fanatics and the anti-'Twilight' group.
Amongst my group of friends it was either you hate it or you love it.......except for me.

I really don't know what to feel about the movie because after watching the show, I'm left with a sense of confusion. Not that I'm confused about the story itself, but rather a conflict of feelings within me. But I guess I can say, that it's a movie that I enjoyed watching.

What I loved about the show was that it wasn't like your typical vampires and werewolves type of movie. Somehow, it's a really unique type of vampire movie. Your usual vampire movies would consists of either Action, Horror or Drama.
Twilight however, was a different brand of cattle. Although it does fit in the drama category, but I also have to agree with the many girls who told me that it was a really romantic movie which not many vampire movies put emphasis on this element.

Also, the storyline of the Twilight Saga is most intriguing. Aside from the romantic-ness of the story (which by the way, why it was a really romantic movie was because of the true love that it manages to stir up that feeling within you) the detail about vampires evolving to a much modern approach is something new to me. And to top it all off with a vampire graduating over and over again? And a vampire that glitters in the sun? That's the most unique thing I've ever heard. The old legend we're normally used to would be the vampire would die if they're exposed to the sun.

And now with the new movie of Twilight called New Moon coming out, I actually find myself eager to watch it. I'm sure girls would be going gaga over the release of the movie.

Ok, ok, I admit, the part I hate about the movie is actually the jealousy I had for the lead actor Robert Pattinson who plays Edward Cullen >.<

I love the sagas, but not the movie. Am still contemplating if I should catch it New Moon in the cinemas.
