I don't know if they do and i just wasn't paying attention to that detail in the book but I always though they didn't have blood...
The reason i'm saying this is because in the fight scene in the movie, when Edward is holding James up and sort of rips off a side of his neck, it shows blood coming down james' lip, I was just wondering if anyone else noticed that, or am I losing my mind?
Nevermind, I just thought about it and it must be the blood from bella's arm when he bites her.. yeah i'm obviously not the brightest haha..

If you've read Midnight Sun, you can see exactly what he's reacting to and when. I also read that when they were shooting, Rob had made notes as to what "feelings" he was reacting to so his portrayal would be accurate.

I was in shock when I realized it and blown away! (here's the song on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Op4xCixZrOs)
okay so now my review of the movie after my third time seeing it (and forth time reading the book):
It is the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life!!!!!! I was completely blown away!
I went with my sister who not only has never read the books but she knew nothing about the movie (if it helps I'm 19 and she's 33). All she knew was that it was a love story and it had vampires, she hadn't even see a preview for it. So that was my mind set going into watching it for a third time. As I was watching the movie trying to imagine how my sister would be watching it and taking it in, with no pre judged thoughts about the movie at all. And I was completely blown away and awe struck, and my sister of course loved it too. I got freaking goose bumps from the baseball scene!!! I completely forgot about the book and just enjoyed it like any other movie and in my opinion it is the best movie ever! I fell in love all over again! And the acting was phenomenal!!! Above and beyond!
And a lot of thing's that I may not have liked from before, and that I know some of you didn't as well, I now love. Like I actually think the make up was phenomenal! The Cullen's skin and lips were amazing! I kinda wish their eyes were a nicer gold but I still loved it. It didn't even bother me that the character's weren't exactly like the book, before I was a bit annoyed with how the Cullen's weren't inconspicuous enough or that Mike wasn't like his book counter part at all but none of that bother's me anymore. I really can't find anything wrong with the movie -when I just think of it as a movie, of course if I compare it to the book I will get pissed off but I don't do that anymore cuz I want to love the movie.
oh and I noticed a little something that might be a mistake but I think it might have been done on purpose. So after Edward and Bella walk into the prom there's a few shots of the like the crowd and other people at the prom and for like a second there is a shot of the back of Victoria at like the punch table or something. I think they may have done that on purpose but I don't think it was a good idea cuz Edward would have known she was there, like he would have known see was watching them dance.twilightsagaaddict wrote:I read on another post that the reason Edward is making those faces is a reaction to his thoughts/feelings.

Yes, I spent a lot of time on youtube watching interviews of Rob taking about his role before I went to go see it a third time - Rob gave a lot of thought about the role and cared a lot about it - and I also reminded myself of how Edward feels in Midnight Sun and that Rob focused on that a lot. And wow was Rob phenomenal! I always thought Rob was great in Twilight but after seeing it a few times and really seeing all the little details in his acting he got even more amazing! and same goes for Kristen, the first few times I saw Twilight I thought she was good but it wasn't her greatest work and now I think Twilight might be her best work! She was great!Asalie wrote:Again, I loved the books and I just wish that the movie would have been truer to the fans and not so much about the general public who probably didnt get half of it anyway if they have not read the book.
See that's what I thought as well about people who have never read the books but everyone I have talked to who didn't read the book before watching the movie say they totally got it. Just watching it tonight I would turn to my sister to explain something and she'd be like yeah I figured that or yeah I got that, she didn't have any questions for me, she totally understood everything and loved it.
