I have seen the movie 4 times so far and just love it. The midnight show screening seemed to go really fast and while I was happy with it, I also missed a lot in my excitement. I always go twice on opening day. The second time I watched the movie I caught a lot of what I missed. I felt the movie is well paced. Is it just me or does anyone else feel like Bella has the most likable parents on the planet? The scene with her mom was so touching, Charlie is hysterical and steals every scene he is in.
I finally got my Bella and Edward moments. I felt you could really see the love they have for each other. I'm glad they didnt follow the book to much regarding Bella and Jake. But I did not like how they made it like Bella really wanted Jake to kiss her at the end. Jake manipulates her into that kiss! And she kisses him so he doesnt do anything stupid like get himself killed. I know she realises then that she cares for him, but I think the way they played out that scene is confusing to those that havent read the book.
DS finally gave us a meadow to remember. Loved both the meadow scenes. The buildup to the fight was stressful even though I knew nobody would get killed.
What I didnt like: Esme's changing hair color in the same film.
Rosalie's black eyebrows?
The shakey camera in Jacobs garage-makes me dizzy. Why is the camera bouncing around?
Emmet grabs Victoria and gets thrown off??? This is Emmet we are taking about.
Bella getting on the bike with Jake wasnt so bad...Bella yelling at Edward over Jacob finding out she's getting married is just unbelievable. Bella would never do that and it doesnt make sense. Did MR change her mind mid script? Like MR couldnt figure out whether Bella kisses Jake because he manipulates her into it, or because she tries to trick him into thinking they have some chance, or because she's pissed at Edward. MR should have read that chapter before writing that scene.
What I loved: Everytime Edward was on screen. Rob nailed Edward again. Love him!
Every Charlie scene.
The new Victoria.
The tent scene.
The training scene with Alice and Jasper.
The background stories of the Quilette tribe, Jasper and Rosalie.
Kristen Stewart's acting=amazing. I love her.
Bellas ending speech. (because I always felt from reading the books that Bella was always meant to be a vampire)
The movie is just incredible and I plan on seeing it at least 3 more times (as I have seen all of them 7 times.)
