Hi all! I haven't been here since Wednesday, and we're on page 4 of a new thread.
Welcome to the newest newbies! The Gutter is extremely addictive. Prepare to lose sleep, have starving spouses and children, and piles of unwashed laundry. Movie Spoilers Below:
My thoughts on the movie change from day to day. Overall, I loved it. Some scenes made me cringe (ie. Ballet Studio when Rob & Kristin go cross-eyed when he sucks the venom from her arm and Rob's gaggy face in biology). Also, why did Kristin sputter erratically whenever anyone asked her a question? Bella didn't do that. That was seriously annoying. Other things I didn't care for:
Carlisle's face and neck never matched.
Bella was just as pale as any vampire.
Mrs. Cope wasn't given her props.
No background on Esme. She's important, dang it!
Rosalie was wearing gloves in the kitchen --ohh wait --were they oven mitts? I noticed when she broke the glass bowl, she was wearing gloves.
The meadow scene. It was seriously lacking. I didn't feel the love between Edward and Bella.
The glitter wasn't so dazzling for me either. I'm not sure what I expected, so this part I will let go. Things I loved:
Cafeteria scene when the Cullens are first introduced!!!
The Humans (Jessica was awesome. Eric was hilarious, geeky, and perfect. Mike was adorable. Angela was sweet and geeky. Tyler was cute and pathetic.)
Jacob and Billy *sigh*
The Nomads. James. Mmmm
Charlie was fantastic. He felt more real to me than almost anyone else.
The Kissing Scene.
The baseball scene was my second favorite scene. It wasn't exactly like the book, but it was still enjoyable and captured the essence of the characters.
I loved the entire kitchen scene. It was dead-on perfect. I wouldn't change anything. Well, perhaps the gloves.
I squeeed and pointed when I saw Stephenie! I was surprised at how many people didn't recognize her.
The soundtrack fit the movie perfectly. I was so excited to be able to silently sing along with the movie.
There are plenty other things I enjoyed or loved about the movie, but I don't want to go that into it here. As I said, I loved it. I've only seen it twice, and I can't wait to see it again.
