Wow, it's sad this has been up for over a month and no one's posted. So I guess I'll start!!
Step up was really good. Rosenberg was definitely able to catch the right chemistry there. It was really interesting and had funny lines in it.
And my mom liked Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. We watched it when I was little, so it's kinda vague and I can't remember it very well. But my entire family liked it, that I do remember.

Dr. Quinn was one of my favorite shows in highschool- never missed an episode! Ok, I didn't read the info posted about her, because I've never seen the other shows she worked on.... don't throw stones!

I have seen the interviews she gave about Twilight, tho. I must say, that judging from the trailers and behind-the-scenes stuff I've seen on YouTube and Mtv, she did an excellent job of condensing Tw for the screen. So much attention has been put on this movie, and the fans are so hard-core, that I hope people aren't too disappointed in some things being added, left out, switched around, or not as they are in the book. I REALLY like the trailer; my favorite line is where Edward tells Bella to say "vampire" outloud. This doesn't happen in the book; it's kind of "morphed" from Bella's thoughts to verbal acceptance in the book. I like that MR added stuff about the nomads to give us some background for them, too! I surely hope that she gets to add the other books to her Credit List!!!

Melissa Rosenberg totally doesn't get enough love in here. SO LOVE TO YOU, MELISSA!!! :)

I was thinking - she's so perfect to write this. I mean, she's a writer and executive producer on Dexter - you know, the show about a good guy who is a serial killer... but kills only those who have killed and gotten away with it. It's such a great show, and really examines a guy trying to come to grips about maybe being a monster and having a dark side.

Sound familiar? :)

YAY MELISSA!

I like some things about what Melissa wrote but some I just thought "WHAT?!?! :? " So far from the trailers that I have seen I think she did do a good job of trying to keep Important parts in the movie... Some things that I did not like was when she made Edward say "Adrenaline rush- You can google it." Or something along those lines. :D I MEAN GOOGLE IT?!?!? SERIOUSLY!!!!! :roll:

Also I heard that they got permission to do NEW MOON, ECLIPSE, and BREAKING DAWN...... AND that Melissa was going to be the screenwriter..... HERES THE LINK TO WHERE I READ THIS:
http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx/?news ... lentchk=1&

Overall though I think that Melissa is okay and that I havent seen any of her previous work * WAITS FOR PEOPLE TO GO INTO SHOCK* but I am looking into it...... :D :D :D :D * HEARS PEOPLE SIGH A BREATH OF RELIEF* :lol:

Yeah I really don't see the point in changing lines from the book if they were including the scene in the movie. I mean what's the point of changing it for???
