The Twilight viewing
Last week Mr. Rochester took me to see the movie Twilight. I really enjoyed reading the books and was looking forward to seeing how the movie compared to the first book in the series. After seeing the commercials for the movie and hearing different reviews from friends and co-workers, I wasn't really sure if I would like the movie. Most women I know that saw the movie enjoyed it, but I thought the commercials made everything look really cheesy. Sure, books about teenage romances probably are pretty cheesy but at the time you are reading them, they don't seem that way. So, when the movie is made, the people making the movie need to be sure to remove the heavy "cheese" factor and replace it with romance minus the "cheese". Anyway, I did enjoy the movie, and it wasn't as cheesy as I thought it would be (although there were still a few cheesy parts). When I asked Mr. Rochester what he thought of the movie, he said, "It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be."
