TWILIGHT (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

—craftily made—completely wins due to the casting choice of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. That onscreen duo combine to form a uniquely electrifying effect that surpasses Clark Gable and Elizabeth Taylor in Gone With The Wind and Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart in The African Queen.  This romance completely defies the ordinary and runs to prove its originality. It’s a BRAVO for Director Catherine Hardwicke’s directorial debut.
