Film.com: Twilight DVD Astonishingly Perfect *Can't Wait!*

Film.com has a glowing review of the Twilight DVD, which Film.com says "has been suffused with love, and such care and attention for detail that even the most critical fan would be hard pressed to find much to complain about":

Some DVD commentaries have only minor characters or a screenwriter and editor bantering back and forth over the film, but not Twilight. They’ve delved straight into the collective mind and produced the three people you’d want to hear from most. The audio commentary is beyond hilarious, as director Catherine Hardwicke, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tease each other, discuss filming problems and improvised moments with the sort of insider glee that’s truly delightful. Surprisingly, Pattinson himself leads the mockery, and his comments show a remarkable amount of self-awareness, as well as some bitingly witty observations, and offerings of alternatively sly dialogue, which tends from minor brilliance to laughing out loud hilarity. In addition to the commentary, worth the retail price alone, there are several music videos from bands that appeared on the soundtrack: Muse, Paramore and Linkin Park. The extended scenes, introduced by the director, offer us a few more glimpses into the world of the vampires, and the day to day existence of Bella and Edward as they learn to love each other.
