Sometimes the director's cuts come out later, so I wouldn't be worried. Isn't that what happened with The Outsiders movie?

I just got back from my 4th viewing... haha... I am obsessed I guess.

This time it was IMAX! I didn't know they had it formatted for it, but they did! And it was digital... so this was the best viewing I've seen :)

But, I still think the only reason I like the movie is because I can fill in the blanks with what I know from the book.

I've also decided that I don't like "movie" Edward nearly as much as I like "book" Edward. Kind of odd, but I just don't see him as the "gentleman" that he was in the book.

I like the movie kiss more than the first book kiss, but I didn't like that there was only one kiss (well, two kisses if you count the kiss in the hospital, but I don't) as opposed to... *counts in head* three kisses in the book.

Wow. I just said 'kiss' seven times in one post.

I wasn't sure where to put this, but can you believe that they were going to cast Daniele Panabaker if Kristin Stewart didn't get the part as Bella?

Oh My GOD?!?!?! Not to be rude but I am beyond glad that we have KStew as Bella. I don't care if she didn't show enough emotion. Whatever. As long as she's Bella. I can't imagine Twilight with Danielle. It would've ruined the movie for me, infact the whole series. And she doesn't look good with RP at all. KStew and RP. That's how it's meant to be. :D

That girl looks more like Bella, in my opinion. I can't say if she would have acted the part well, but I definitely think she has the look going.

i actually think she would have made a good bella. she looks more like her in my opinion, and she's a decent actress (which is more than i can say for kristen... no offence, but the girl has like one emotion..) plus she was one of SM's picks for bella. i would have approved.

I guess I should add that at this point, even though I wasn't completely ecstatic with Kristin's performance, she is Bella to me now. But if the movie hadn't been filmed yet and the role of Bella was still open, I think some of the other actresses considered for the role may have been better. "May" being the operative word.

Also, though SM created the characters out of thin air, I thought some of her suggestions were ludicrous. I heard one of her early suggestions for Charlie was John C. Riley. Wow. I am so glad who they chose in the end.
