I will definitely stay away from the boards before I see it so I can form my own opinion in case people are saying it sucks and have nit picky reasons so I'm not searching for those the first time I see it. I also don't read reviews until after I see the movie because I don't want it to ruin the movie experience.


Yeah, no reviews for me either, although I will watch as much little extra clips they release as possible, to prepare myself, it helped a lot so I didn't completely lose it when I first saw Twilight. I like it now, but at first... Oh it was bad.


i dont fully understand how people thought the movie was horrible at first or at all. of course it wasnt as good as the book. i dont think any movie ever is. i didnt like the meadow scene and some other parts could have been improved greatly, but i enjoyed it. i luved it actually. was it bcaz u had high expectations? or did u think everything was just awful?


Well, I think despite preparing myself, I had high expectations. And I love Twilight more than anything else (not including people) and I wasn't used to it ever letting me down!

Plus, I have to say, I think it is a bad movie, but I was so angry it wasn't Twilight to me, I couldn't appreciate the little things that make the movie worthwhile.

I mean, it just isn't Twilight.

I have said this before, and I will say it again.

The book is about a love story, and happens to include vampires.

The movie is about vampires, and happens to include a love story.

That is how I see it anyways.




I agree with your statements: " The book is about a love story, and happens to include vampires. The movie is about vampires and happens to include a love story".

I wanted more of the love story in the movie (as it was in the book). It would have just made it more...satisfying. I didn't think the movie was bad, just left me wanting more. I think the more I read about the making of the movie, i.e. Rob's preparations in the mindset of Edward, the more I enjoy it. But I'm still hoping they bring more of the "story" to NM.

I will probably watch as many clips as I can and read as much I can on the making of NM! (Just like I continue to do with HP! :D ) I want to be prepared on what's been changed/added before I go.


Yeah that's exactly how it is fro me. I want the love story more in there! I think it came off soooo wrong in the movie. One second they had had three conversations, the next they were in love with each other. I just felt like I had missed some huge section of the movie with the entire courting process and an explanation on how MUCH they loved each other.

I have said this before too. But honestly, I don't think the audience that has not read the books will understand HOW it could be SUCH a dramatic loss and HOW she could be in SO much pain when Edward leaves her. They will need to do some major back-tracking if they want them to understand that, and not have them think she is being over-dramatic.

Did you guys notice this bit of news on the Lexicon's news blog:

Shock Til You Drop has an article about director James Mangold possible helming Eclipse.


Does that mean he'll be co-directing or replacing Chris Weitz for Eclipse??

And has anyone ever heard of him? What movies has he done?

CrazyObsessed: I agree with you. I think that there may have been too many long looks artistically shot but not enough dialogue to support them in the movie. And due to the lack of exposition, Edward's "guardian" behaviors come off much more creepy than they do in the book. I was watching part of the beginning of the movie on my ipod this morning with Edward telling her how he had been following her. And it just came off as being more stalker than guardian.

Rob, you rebel you -- not wearing invisaline braces when they asked you to, cutting your hair -- dude, you're playing Edward -- gotta be working toward perfection, not against it.

Oh well, gotta love ya anyway ;)


There is a thread about his hair. I just forget what forum it's in. But you said you "read" he got in trouble for cutting it. Where?! & can you link it??




Here's your link:

Thanks!! I couldn't help but laugh. Wow, he actually got in trouble for cutting his "edward" hair. Poor Rob!! I hope his hair grows back before filming. :?: Do you think he would have to wear a wig? Hmm...

Thank you. And I totally agree. It was sweet and romantic in the book, but in the movie I was like "Stalker!"

It comes off totally creepy.

Staring at her while he is all sweaty-looking and she is basically convulsing.

And the whole watching you sleep thing is not explained because in the movie the whole talking in her sleep thing is never mentioned.

:cry:

Everything that makes Twilight Twilight is totally absent in the movie!

Sleeptalking, Cullens History, Edward and Bella's love, Jasper and Alice and all their powers explained and present a lot, Courting process, Bella's hate of blood...

There are so many more but I am getting mad, and I am going to stop.

About Rob's hair. Since New Moon is more Jacob/Bella anyway, maybe if they push Rob's scenes back a bit and concentrate on Kristen and Taylor's stuff first, that'll give him time to grow it back. I bet he'll never do that again. :lol:

Anyone else see the EW article that says the only characters that have been cast are Edward, Bella and Jacob? Are they recasting the rest?
