Good for the hardcore Twilight fan and for others
13 April 2010 | by AngieeeBabayySee all my reviews

This is good for hardcore Twilight fans, but it's also good for those who are interested in Twilight and are more curious about what's real and what isn't in the Twilight saga.

I'm not going to say it's horrible, because it's not. It's better not to have expectations before watching because that can throw your whole attitude of it off. Yes, some people in the documentary are just a little too crazy when it comes to Twilight. But, there are some people on that documentary that are just so happy and at peace with where they live, and the beauty of the place itself along with all of that happiness almost makes you want to live there.

I do think it's kind of moronic for Summit to be making money off of all aspects of Twilight (by having a documentary where the movie takes place). However, it's kind of amazing to see a blur between reality and fantasy, what's in the movies verses what really happens in Forks is not so much different and it's kind of interesting to see.

If you have an hour to kill and you're curious about this or if you're just a die-hard fan- I'd say go for it. But if you're pessimistic on the whole saga or just have small but decent interest in Twilight, it's better not to see it. I personally somewhat liked it, it gave me a new insight on the saga and it wasn't too boring. I gave it a 5.
