Disc 1 contains extended scenes not scene in theaters, audio commentary by director Catherine Hardwicke, Kristen & Robert, plus Music Videos from Muse, Paramore, Linkin Park & others.
Disc 2 contains a detailed 7 part documentary that gives you the ulimate insider's look at how Twilight was created - from book to script to screen - plus never before seen deleted scenes.
Disc 3 contains a revealing conversation with Stephenie Meyer, intimate journeys with Robert in "Becoming Edward" and Kristen in "Becoming Bella" and more on the music from the film including Edward's piano concert.
This is the ultimate edition available of Twilight!
The dialogue is horrendous, the effects cheesy, the music (not the soundtrack which is great, but the score) indescribably awful. It looks like a made for TV movie.
However- I can't stop watching it. i saw it 3 times in the theater and pre-ordered my own copy. It entertains me. Plus, Edward is nice to look at... oh, James too. LOVE James.To me this movie is absolutely hysterical- where it doesn't intend to be. The scene where Edward first sees Bella in class and he looks as if he may throw up on her??? Great! The look that Billy Black and Edward exchange as they pass each other in their cars? Priceless. I love the baseball scene! But the crouch down and prepare to fight stance they take at the end... Can anybody say Power Rangers? But just mentioning all this makes me want to watch it again. I know it makes no sense. It just has that power.
I should be embarrassed to like this, but I'm not. I will watch it over and over again proudly. I will recommend it to anyone I can. Watch it and love it. But know that it's terrible and know that it can't compare to the book and that all of it's charm is due to it's cheesiness.
If you haven't read the stories, I encourage you to do so. Regardless, this film will be a treasured part of your movie collection and one you'll be sure to watch several times before you'll feel satisfied.
Not only are there plenty of extra interview materials, but there are extra scenes not included with the 2 disc. Remember the infamous Biology scene where Edward seems repulsed by Bella? Imagine if he suddenly attacked her from behind and drug her from her seat, biting her and doing what he so desperately wanted to do. Well, that was an alternate idea for that scene, and you'll get to see it on the 3rd disc.
Maybe most importantly, we feel it was a horrible idea to change directors, feeling Catherine Hardwicke had done her homework and by far had the best grasp on the romance of the books and film and the subsequent directors have done a horrible job, getting away from the romance and changing the films into an action series. Like Titanic, it's a romance series at heart. While the boat sinking was a big part of Titanic, it would not have been nearly the hit it was without the well told romance between the main characters. Since changing directors, the series has greatly gone down hill due to forgetting that the romance is the true basis of the series.
Having realized we were not going to enjoy the subsequent films as much as the original, we have made a point to collect as much as possible from the original film. If you love Twilight, you will love this 3 disc collection. Thank you Catherine Hardwicke for such an amazing job on bringing Twilight to the screen. We ache that the fools who came late to the party didn't get it but had their way. Jim & Stephanie Patton

I agree with tammy. This is supposed to be a special limited edition collector's item and I am thoroughly disappointed with the ultra-cheap quality of the contents!

|why this movie sucks||
I have to agree with Faith. I don't think that they're going about it the right way, and to just come in and say "you suck, you jerk. waahhh waahhh waahhh" is really not the best way to act. But, I agree with the fact that the movie was just plain and simply, not good. I'm not trying to... Read More

|Are Twilight vampires even technically vampires?||
According to folklore and Bram Stoker's novel DRACULA vampires can walk around in the day time, they are just not as powerful then. The idea that vampires cannot tolerate sunlight was invented by the film industry, which has popularized false vampire lore. Hooray for films that ignore this false... Read More

I wasn't going to reply to you at all because it's obvious that you just hate the movie, but I did want to comment on the "sheeple" comment. I want you know first of all though, that I in no way want to bash you for your opinion. You are 100% entitled to it. While I am a fan, I also... Read More

I loved the movie, but did anyone notice that Billy Black was driving when he and Edward had the stare-off? Um hello, he can't drive in the book because he is in a wheelchair and thats why Charlie buys his truck for Bella. That made me laugh. Especially because Edward's expression was probably... Read More
