I've only seen the movie once, but as soon as I get the chance I'll see it again (aka in January...)
So, I've been saving my "review" for the end of the evening, knowing I wouldn't be able to concentrate before everything else was done (got nothing done, but bought a ticket for the Eternal Twilight con...) Loved!
Bella/Charlie - they felt so real together.
Charlie - He looks and acts just like my dad did before he got sick and passed away <3
Bella/Jacob - lol, they are even goofier than in the book.
humans - they were all great
Emmett - I finally like him now, I don't know what my aversion was before.
SM's cameo - I was the only one to notice in the whole cinema, everyone stared as I squeeled like a schoolgirl. That was the only squeal in the movie by the way, not even the hot boys got any...moments:
the Edward/Jacob stare-down before prom, that just made the entire movie for me, seriously!
Billy chasing Charlie with the wheelchair <3
the Jessica/Bella "boob"-thing at prom, so exactly what me and my friends did in that age.
Tyler kissing Bella's cheek and stealing Mike's chair
Rene's note "you're being safe, aren't you?"
all the remarks that would have passed a non-reader bystill considering:
what's with the Cullen's driving separate cars to school? they should only do that after
the Port Angeles trip, and then it's still only Rose's BMW.
the Vampires in general - they didn't really do it for me (Emmett being the exception)
the meadow, what's with ditching school to go sparkle? Not Edwards style really....
Why a tennis shoe? hello, Alice would never let her out of the house like that... Oh, right, they left from Bella's
house... and again, why? Disliked the leggings! (they belong to the dress, therefor here)
The kiss. I'm just not sure! And where is her pajama pants?
I miss Bella's "human moments"Dislike:
The whole "spider-monkey" thing. And what about the running up the trees? No.
Rosalie. I expected her to be full of sarcasm and snickering inputs, not downright rude to Bella's face.
Port Angeles thing, especially the diner, but most of all, where is their discussion in the car on the way back? It was one of my favorite parts of Twilight -the book.
I also miss Bella's sarcasm, it gave her character a well needed spark in the book.
I dislike that Billy drives a new shiny truck, not for the truck itself, but in the books he doesn't
drive! Jacob drives him everywhere...
Why didn't Bella flirt with Jacob to get him to go walking with her, telling her stuff? That was what sparked his interest in the books and made for the whole triangle drama later...
I didn't like the way Bella woke up and saw Edward in her bedroom, that just made the whole thing feel creepy, and I never got that from the book.
In general I still think the movie was well made, it was worth the total of 6-7 hours traveling. I believe it had more to give someone who had read the books, since I found a lot of comments/lines that made references to the books. I think it will grow on me as I watch it more.
