Not So Special Effects

Photo: still from Twilight

Over at NYPost I saw Lou Lumenick's write-up re: Michael Phillips' write-up re: the not-so-special effects in 'Twilight'. Phillips says:

5. If "Twilight" performs below expectations at the box office, it may have something to do with...the special effects, which are not special. They are, in fact, on the cheesy side.

Agree. I noticed that from the first trailers. Effects are very low-end -- what you would expect from a shoe-string budget movie. Of course, nobody will care. 'Twilight' is a sweeping romance for today's kids. It's about desire, pursuit, the rules of attraction, and surrender. Audiences will not be watching the effects, they'll be falling in love.
