My Review: If you liked the movie Twilight and have any interest at all on how the movie was made...BUY THIS BOOK! The pictures are amazing and so cool. It gives you the basic lowdown on how Twilight was made...from costumes to why 2nd unit filmed what they did. My only real complaint is that it was so small. I think it should have been larger like the Twilight: the Complete Illustrated Movie Companion. It's also an insanely fast read. i had it done within 2 hours. All in all, a great buy.

Sorry it's a short one. Comment if you've read it or plan too.

Great review, but I don't think I will get this one. Not that big of a fan (at least of the movie).
