So I'm pretty new here to the Lex (as in, I joined yesterday), and this is my first time posting on this thread, and I'm very happy about it! ::claps and giggles for myself in excitement:: *Ahem* anyways...
I agree with a lot of what has been said so far. One other thing I'd really like to see in the NM movie is how Edward kisses Bella very passionately (and unexpectedly) in her bedroom following the birthday party scene where Jasper almost attacks her. Though in the book this kiss makes her think back to the way he kissed her in Twilight right before she leaves for Phoenix with Jasper and Alice (which wasn't in the Twilight movie) and she remembers how it was the way he kissed her when he wasn't sure if and when he'd see her again. But in NM after he kisses her, he says something to the effect of "That may have been out of line..." (something like that). And even though this type of kiss wasn't introduced in the Twilight movie, if you can see the struggle on his face/in his words in the NM movie when he kisses her, you'll still be able to get a vague sense of how he's undergoing an internal battle of wanting so badly to be with her, but also knowing that him being in her life is not in her best interest.
And I also agree that they HAVE to get the break-up scene just right. It's rare for me to tear up when reading, but literally, that part ripped my heart out and I flat-out cried
. Especially because (at least for me) you could see the break-up coming... and I feel like Bella's intuition was telling her that the break-up was coming, but because of how exceptionally traumatic it would be for her, it's like she couldn't even let her mind go there. So she let herself believe that Edward's distance and strange behavior leading up to the break-up was because he was going to ask her to leave with him, and not that he
was leaving her
, because that's not something she could deal with. And I totally got that while reading the book too, because I vividly remember the experience of being in a relationship with someone, and seeing the signs of a break-up coming, but because it would be too dang hard to deal with, you convince yourself that it's something else; something easier to live with. Something that wouldn't devestate you. So if they screw this scene up in the movie, I will feel livid. In fact, I may make a special trip to Summit's headquarters and punch those responsible in the face
Haha, I'm kidding, I'm not *actually* a violent person, I swear! Although, saying that just made this conversation run through my head...
Emmett: Fall down again, [CiaoBella
Me: No, Emmett, I punched a [Summit Executive
] in the face.
