A town finding a way to survive? V1.00, 23 October 2011
Author: annevejb from UK

After the first Twilight series feature I considered that the highlight, for me, was the scenery surrounding Forks. This was mostly not filmed in the real area, so what is the countryside around Forks really like? I found that the net showed a bit and that this showed an interesting little bit more.

I found the first 20 minutes of this DVD, the fan interviews, to be interesting and okay. The rest of the feature also included a bit more of what I was looking for, but not much scenery.

First viewing, Forks as a village, USA speak city, that had depended mostly on logging for employment and the logging industry has scaled down its employment needs. How does the community survive? The rest of the feature covered several different areas that fans of the novels might want to consider but it was this aspect that coloured it all for me.

I read the Twilight series as novels for those who have their feet on the ground as far as reading skills go. To me they call for a reading ability in female fiction of circa age 15 plus and many school kids and older are undented enough to be able to happily cope with that. That suggests that fan stuff can benefit from being at that level too.

First viewing, I got the impression that many fans are likely to be disappointed by what this shows of fan attractions that have been appearing in Forks. It seemed more like fifteen year old girlie. Second viewing, for when drafting this review, much of that impression changed and it was mostly just the tour choice for the Cullen house that felt weak.

This is a fairly low cost DVD and in some ways I found it worthwhile, if easy to misinterpret 180°.
