Since the filming is completed by now (or so we're led to believe?), I may as well quell my fretting! But one scene which was particularly heartwrenching for me - which no one has addressed here - was the one in which Bella is working through her feelings for Jacob, whether she could be happy with him, how bad would it be to live a life with someone who loves her and to share what happiness she could with him ... how she was on the verge of opening that door... and then they drive past the house and Carlisle's car is there. I was so happily excited! the heartbreak is over - they're back! ... but, oh... how it must have torn at Jacob's heart to see it; and yet he gave her back ... That was a scene for me. Joyful and heartrending at the same time. I didn't know whether to cheer or sob. It seems a small thing in the greater sweep of the tale, but it made a tremendous impact on me when I read it. I hope they found some way to incorporate it.
And on the topic of "funny" ... New Moon is decidedly a sad and dark episode in the series. But it's more dramatic to portray that darkness against brief moments of brightness. So, for that reason, I hope they do allow some humor into the movie. Just for contrast.
I have the same hopes and fears as many of you, but from the brief clips I've seen, it's not likely to disappoint me to the point of hysteria. I'm looking forward to the movie -- and the rest of the series too!
Every time I hear thunder, I wonder where the game is... ~xo~
