I had to do a presentation for one class and I did it on reading and the one that I remember the most is: "don't judge a book on its movie." or something along those lines. Getting inside the characters head is what I love the most about books.

I do hope that they keep in Bella seeing Sam and co. cliff diving, and than having her want to do it, have her dive, have Jake save her, and most of what happens after that. I do think most of the sleep over can be cut down to one night and than have Harry's funeral in the morning, have Edward call and than have Bella and Alice rush off to Italy to save Edward. Anything after Bella's cliff diving adventure is what I can't wait to see.

I'm going to be really really angry if the whole Edward leaving is done wrong. It was the one of the few scenes in the entire series to rip my heart out.

Exactly. I want the full experience that I had when I was reading the books. Of course, the movie definitely won't be as good as the books, but that's another topic.... I want to feel the emotions that Bella's feeling. I'm wondering how they're going to do that part. Because in reality, Edward still loves Bella, but she's blinded by the impossibility of the situation, combined with the feelings that she knew this was coming and that she always thought his love for her was impossible. Because of these she doesn't realize that Edward is still in love with her. As readers, we are free to interpret her feelings and Edward's actions as we wish. But how are they going to translate this into a movie? Are they going to make it seem completely obvious that Edward doesn't love her, which would definitely be heartbreaking to us as an audience? Or are they going to slyly show us that Edward is still in love and doesn't want to leave, which would change our entire perspective on the movie? That is where it gets difficult translating a book to a movie... any thoughts? (Sorry if this is off topic, but I thought it was kind of related, since it's a scene we want to see done well in the movie.)

As book readers we know what will happen, and so I do think that it should come off as it being Edward doesn't want her in any way, shape, or form. We will know better, but I'd rather have full impact of the scene that we can get because we can't get inside her head without a voiceover; which I think would kill the scene. Showing that he still wants her went he says goodbye may only ever noticed by us, but I'd rather have it done so it looks like he doesn't want her. There are some songs that come to mind, but really can't pinpoint a song that would fit there.

I just want as much Edward as they can put in :D ...like who needs the Jacob parts? really?
While I was reading the book I was practically banging my head on the wall til they mentioned something about Edward then I started breathing again when he was back in the story.

I think that whatever they do to have Edward leaving will leave most of us in tears through the movie, maybe it will be like the book where we have to see the movie twice just to pick up the stuff we missed while bawling.

I really hope that they keep Edward out of the film and no flashing back to him, as much as i love him this book isnt really revolved around their relationship (until the end) it revolves around Jake and Bella.

I want to hear his voice though when she hears it ... with that effect they use to make it sound ... "foggy".

I also would love to hear Edwards speech that everyone else wants to hear ... of course :)


Me too! im just starting to re read it and im still all for Edward and find that Jacob just irrates me.

edward: i can see where you might confuse me with a nightmare. but i cant imagine what you couldve done to wind up in hell. did you commit many murders while i was away?
bella: obviously not. if i was in hell you wouldnt be with me.


bella: you were hunting victoria?
edward: not well. but ill do better next time. she wont be tainting perfectly good air by breathing in and out much longer.


well on second thought i want to see everything after the cliff diving!


Yes, everything after the cliff diving better be perfection.
The one scene that I REALLY want is when Alice appears in Bella's living room. I want that verbatim! It'd be cool if they included that whole time passing part as well.

Well, OF COURSE they need to put the passing of months in. It's practically essential to everything. That is probably the one thing from the book that if they didn't put in...well, I would be very very mad. And when Edward purposes to Bella and she freaks out and he's like "You're wounding my ego" or something like that--sorry, my NM is out on loan to my sister, so I can't quote it exactly. Actually, any part after they get back from Italy would be great. My favorite parts have Edward in them-- I basically hated life from the time he left until he came back. Oh by the way, I have two sisters--one is on Eclipse, the other on NM--they just started reading them on Saturday night...the one who is on NM hates her life right now--she is obsessed with Edward and already read Midnight Sun. I think we have some new fans!
