Twilight was better than it had any right to be.

Movie!Edward is way better than book!Edward, too. The whole "I sparkle omg" reveal in the movie is better, and the Cullens may spend too much time with their grease paint, but they're totally a fun group of people. Doc Cullen was bouncy. Hilarious! All the scenes with just Edward and Bella were impossibly horrible, but when anyone else was around, the movie was surprisingly watchable. Seeing it in a theatre full of squealing teenage girls? Priceless.

Also, the Epic Thunderstorm Baseball Scene is a montage set to "Supermassive Black Hole". I don't know what spaceships melting in the dead of night have to do with vampires, but I'll go with it. I leaned over to [ profile] nevalent after I'd finished chair dancing and suggested that the better Muse song for Twilight would be "Stockholm Syndrome". There is, however, something perfect about a falsetto croon of "Oh baby I'm a fool for you" applied to Edward Cullen.

After Twilight, we went for the double bill and saw the Swedish vampire movie Let The Right One In. It was by far the better film: low-budget indie, darkly funny and casually gory. Speaking of Stockholm, heh.
