I brought the DVD the day before it came out officially (BIG W put them up early) and watched it when I got home. I had already read all four books, which I fell in love with but not as much as Harry Potter.
I think the actors chosen were fairly good, though I agree with the comments on Rosalie to an extent. Robert did a good job as Edward although when he first speaks in class it was like he was talking for the first time in his life; it was bizarre. I actually love Jasper, even though he didn't get to say anything and had a funny look on his face! Alice was awesome too I thought, the actress Ashley was a great choice!
The baseball scene was one of my favourites. Overall I think it did do justice to the book and included the important moments but it would have been nice to see some extra bits and pieces from the book.
I am really looking forward to New Moon!
In regards to HP versus Twilight... HP all the way, I think J.K has a much stronger writing style and develops her characters really well compared to Stephenie.
