But there's a part of me who secretly wishes Chris Weitz would take Twilight and redo it, just for sh*ts and giggles. Hardwicke is great, but I personally think her style is for indie movies rather than blockbuster franchises. Sure, it gave the first installment personality, but we are talking about a major book series here. I can't picture an indie Harry Potter movie. And I think Twilight is pretty much on the same level.
I haven't really seen any of Catherine's movies. And I'm sorry, but I don't think I will in the future either. She is just too "far out" for me, with all her "coool", "yeah"...If I had known more about her before, I might have seen that she is good director, but now my opinion of her is just so colored with Twilight. I don't hate the movie, at all. It's okay. But nothing more. And it has some serious disappointments. So in my opinion, CH was all wrong for Twilight. It was, like you say, just not her thing. She brought to many of her own visions to the movie.
So I am so happy that Chris Weitz is doing this.

However, (at least in my opinion) they should hold out for once she is changed, so that the before and after is a great difference. That's minor, too, but I think we all are picking apart that trailer for every minute detail. =P
That's the only way will survive until november. We have to pick this trailer apart and discuss every single detail
I personally think Bella looks alright. At least she's not too pretty in the forest. She looks natural. At the party she has a lot of makeup on, but it was a party. And they probably imagined Alice dressing Bella up and doing her makeup for the party.
