Movie Review – Twilight – The Love That Dare Not Bare Its Fangs – NYTimes.com

http://movies.nytimes.com/2008/11/21/movies/21twil.html

I lurve the NYTimes’ chief movie reviewers, the squeeful AO Scott and delightfully bitchy Manohla Dargis. At the best of times, their reviews can feel like equal parts history lesson and literature discussion, as well as a bang-on movie review. This Twilight review is no exception, though it also adds a touch of WTF-dom with this very un-Manohla-like first paragraph:

It’s love at first look instead of first bite in “Twilight,” a deeply sincere, outright goofy vampire romance for the hot-not-to-trot abstinence set. Based on the foundational book in Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling multivolume series, “The Twilight Saga” (four doorstops and counting), this carefully faithful adaptation traces the sighs and whispers, the shy glances and furious glares of two unlikely teenage lovers who fall into each other’s pale, pale arms amid swirling hormones, raging instincts, high school dramas and oh-so-confusing feelings, like, OMG he’s SO HOT!! Does he like ME?? Will he KILL me??? I don’t CARE!!! 🙂
