yes we can discus everything in here but i think we should keep away from the twist/end of the movie. it will spoil everything for whomever reads this. We can talk about it but I think all our dutchies agree that we shouldn't talk about those details just yet. I'm okay with it if you do talk about it,. it's your choice but I'm going to stay away from that bit.
Alright my thoughts: again massive spoiler warning!!!
I start with that I told my mom at least a dozen times that I hated what they have done to me with this movie. It was difficult to watch, especially towards the end. I know I loved the movie but seriously this movie isn't suitable for heart patients.
I didn't like the start, it was too rushed I think. I wished that had set the pace of Bella's adaption into being a vampire a bit slower. I know it only takes 4 chapters in the book but I missed the real feeling of it in the scenes. Yes we get a bit of everything but I wished that had taken the time to show Edward's reaction to Bella's resistence to human blood. I wished they had shown Carlisle asking Bella all these questions. I missed that the Cullens were all there to help Bella through that first hour. and I greatly missed all Emmett's jokes. They did a few but I felt that it wasn't enough
Also I missed that Bella challenged Emmett in armwrestling. it was done a bit strange.
A big script mistake that they made was that the Cullens left Bella alone to deal with Charlie. At first Jacob, Edward and Carlisle are there but then they just leave. A newborn with a human. Jasper would be dead and burned before he let that happened... not to mention Edward.
I absolutely loved Billy Burke... that man deserves an oscar for his work as Charlie. He was so good, so emotional and perfect timing... he made me cry...
The new vampires... I loved them all...
I didn't like that they spend so little time with them and that they didn't show much of Peter and Charlotte. I love them, I love that they are Jasper's only friends from his former life and they just gave them a few screen shots but no lines.
The guy that played Benjamin nailed it... he was the best new cast in that bunch. I had imagined him a bit younger but he was perfect. Such a good actor.
Garret was so good... he was good I loved his first scene with Emmett and Rosalie. I'm sorry that they took out his speach and gave it to Edward and Benjamin (sort of).
Alistor!!! Seriously, I´m in love with that guy... he is good...and stunning...
The Amazon´s were as I expected but they only ever showed 2 of them where as I remember there were 3 in the book.
Mackenzie was good as Renesmee. Sadly she only got a few lines but her acting skills are so good. She had me cry once.
The only time you could see that she was much older than Renesmee was when they shower her gift. Her hand was too big for being Renesmee´s age.
A few things I didn´t like:
- I didn't like how they did Bella's shield. I understand why they did it like that but I think it could have been done better is it was done completely from Bella's POV.
- Aro and Caius, I just thought their part of the script wasn't good.
- the last 25 minutes of the movie!!!!! I just can't explain how much I wanted to burn the book and pull my hand of the complete Saga never to look at it again... Thankfully they explained it properly in the end... it made it easier to live with. (I still can't believe I survived that!!!!
Seriously the last 25 minutes had me in utter shock. I can't remember how many times I said "No" during that part of the movie. I was shaking like crazy and I was sick. I can't believe SM and Bill did that to their fans... I mean do that really want us dead???
I do have more thoughts and comments but I'll post them after I see the movie again tomorrow. Maybe I'll think of more during the day...
