Get Ready for Some Twilight Talk!!







Ok just a little review of the Movie......







To start off with...I liked it and the second time I saw it I liked it even more. Definatly better the second time. Now I know what some/most people are saying out there,..but like I said before this is my review.






Favorites:





-Charlie....they did a great job on picking the perfect Charlie. He was everything Bella's father was in the book and more.






-The baseball scene.....I LOVED It! I wish they could have spent more time here. One fav part is when Edward and Emmett are both jumping up in the air and they collide and hit the ground and they both just start laughing...I loved it. Second fav when Jasper is flipping around the baseball bat. Can we say talented? Third fav when Bella calls Rosalie out at home plate...If that was me I would have been like ...uh no you are safe, completly safe...no outs for you. (With a cheesy scared grin on my face.)






-The kiss scene....mmmmmm yess I loved this scene. Fav part when (giggling while writing) Edward says to Bella ..."Just Don't move......Don't Move" Something about that line just gives me the giggles. Second fav is when they are kissing and he says "No" and flys back ward and she's just sitting there all stunned.






-Esme...( I know some people didn't like her that much but I loved her) I thought she did a great job playing the motherly role and how she was just so excited for Edward to have someone he loved. It definatly showed in her performace.






-The Port Angeles scence was great, I thought that the way he whipped his car around to get out of there was awesome.






-Emmett......need we say more? Yes...he was perfect.






-Mike Newton and Jessica Stanley were great characters in this movie. They definatly added more comic relief.






- The Van Crash scene was done beautifullly. The pain and shock on Edwards face was pricesless. Fav part is when they are in the hospital after and Charlie comes in and is all protective over her and doesn't even give Tyler Crowley a chance to say he's sorry. So cute!






*** There are plenty more favorite little scenes and I know I could write them all down but I won't. Now lets get to the Not so Favorite Parts.....( these are only the parts that I truely just had to close my eyes because I just couldn't handle watching.)






Not So Favorites:





-When Edward is sucking out the Venom out of Bellas arm...uhh I just couldn't watch, not because it was gross by any means, but because it was just awkward and wierd to see Robert Pattinson acting that way. I just didn't like it. It was much better when I could just close my eyes and listen to it.





-Edward and this Shimmering sweating diamond face. I did not like how they did this at all. I think it just just made him look funny.





-The whole Meadow scene....not that I hated it, but I just felt they were quickly telling us everything that we needed to know in this scene...it was not gradual and it was awkward to see them laying there without touching and just staring at each other. And then some where in there they just have a random scene of Edward playing the piano for Bella...it just seemed to not quite fit in.





-The "I know what you are" scene....like I said before, it not that I hated it, but I just didn't like how he went from yelling to all of a sudden saying " and so the Lion fell in love with the lamb" and all of a sudden they were professing themselves to one other. It just felt odd...they had no development of there relationship.





-No Character development of Alice, Jasper and Emmett. There seemed to be more Rosalie than Alice which is difinatly not the case in the book.





-And one final thing...did anyone catch this....There was NO mention to Twilight and why twilight is so important to there relationship. I know that in books and movies they usually put in at least once. That just seemed odd to me.





**** Anyways I think I could go on for days and have this whole movie completly broken down but my fingers are going a little numb and I still have more to do on this blog...so I will save it for later. All in All I think it was a good Movie...and that is what it is...a Movie. They did a good job following the book with the budget that they were given. Now lets just hope that they get a large budget for New Moon and do this book Justice the way we all would have liked with Twilight!

We had the best seat...right smack dad in the center. In the picture from left to right...Christina, Sima, me, Sierra, and Cheryl. Kim Joined about 10min into the movie. We are so glad she got to make it.Just waiting in Line. We had a blast just hanging out and chatting all night.

We just had to sport our Forks Sweatshirts! The best part was that no one else had one!

You hit it. I totally agree with your feelings on it all. Including loving Charlie's character. I didn't really "get" him in the book, but the movie made it come together for me. Definitely wanted more Alice in this one. Loved who they cast for Bella.

Can't wait for New Moon! Thanks for feeding the Twilight obsession around here!

I know I am Jimmy's friend, but we are Twilight friends at heart and I agree compeletly with you on everything you liked in the movie and everything you didn't. I the meadow scene was totally weird and that their legs looked broken the way they were laying there.

I totally agree with all the goods and bads of the movie that you listed. One other awkward moment I would add is when they are at school, Bella is at the salad bar and Edward comes over... can't remember what exactly was said but they are talking and she says one thing and he says, "Tell me some of your theories"...awkward, she didn't say anything about having theories. :)
But like you said it is a movie,and it was pretty good...hopefully the next one does the book justice!

I'm so sad I wasn't here for the big movie watching!! I did watch it in Utah, though. It was funny reading your comments, because they were almost exactly my own thoughts. I LOVED the baseball scene - probably my favorite part of the whole movie!! I have always been a Jacob fan, but this movie brought back all the old emotions with Edward before Jacob became involved. I wasn't so sure of who they chose to play Edward, but by the end of the movie I was definitely in love!! He did an amazing job with his facial expressions - he portrayed the tension soooo well!! I thought they did an amazing job with the cast - with 2 exceptions. I didn't like who they chose for Jacob or Rosalie. Jacob just wasn't cute at all, and Rosalie was not drop dead gorgeous like the book portrayed her. One of my biggest let downs was also the way they showed Edward glittering in the sun. His skin was supposed to just emanate with radiance - they didn't quite capture it. Anyway, this is too long already, but I really liked the movie and was more impressed than I expected.
