  2. >I think Claire was overly critical. I wasn’t surprised, exactly, because my expectations were unrealistically high going into the movie, but I was impressed. I thought the movie was really Fine. Real actors, really acting! The fact that Pattinson could have hair that stupid and still pull off his role speaks volumes for his talent. I enjoyed the scoring, and thought that the big reveal of sparkles was delightfully anti-climactic. OMG Bella, he. . . he . . . sparkles! There were so many things that were spot-on that nontheless didn’t make me gag the way the book did. I have to give it up for Hardwicke.
