The end of the movie, the scene in the meadow, almost made it seem like Bella was saying she wanted to be a vampire more than she wanted to be with Edward for eternity. What was that about???? Biggest disappointment for me was right there.
I agree w/both of your points here. While watching the tent scene I was waiting for Edward to talk about that.
I didn't like it sounded like Bella wanted to be a vampire more than she wanted to be w/Edward. That's not true!! I think even in the book Edward brings that up & Bella says no. (It's been about 7/8 months since I read th book so I can't remember specifically.)
So for the most part I really liked it. I just got done seeing it so here's my initial thought/reactions. At first I was worried when I heard that DS was going to direct it. Especially because I haven't seen any of his other movies & that the previous movies were pretty much horror.
I wish they had the scenes w/Alice trying to convince Bella to let her plan the wedding. And then when Bella tells Alice she can & Alice already has a dress for Bella. Those are my two favorite Alice moments in the whole saga!
I liked the NM wolves better. I had read in some reviews that they were better here. I don't agree.
I wish Jacob was more cocky after the first "kiss". And that he "attacked" her more like in the book. That was one reason I hated Jacob in the book.
Loved the newborn fight. It was pretty awesome. (Except why didn't Edward tear Victoria apart? Just cutting off her head shouldn't have killed her. Oh well at least he burned her.)
The proposal was pretty good but I felt like there was something missing. I'm not sure what since it's been a while since I've read it. Hmm......But I did love how he talked about in his time he would've courted her.
Loved Rosalie's & Jasper's backstories. Although Rosalie's seemed kind of short (especially in comparison w/Jaspers.) Except that it didn't have Jasper's "I felt hope" line. That is just wrong!!!! Rosalie's really made me feel for her, I almost cried. It was good & terrible that the same time. (Does that makes sense?) And I was glad the wolf legends were shortened. I always have a hard time reading that in the book & usually skip over it.
Billy as Charlie was awesome like always. He had some good/funny lines/scenes like he usually does. I think I like Charlie better in the movies than I do the books because Billy is so awesome!
I was happy that there seemed to be a lot more direct/very close lines from the book in this one.
That's all I can think of right now.
