I watched the movie yesterday and i agree with EVERYONE on this page. Even though the movie was a not bad movie.. like it had its good scenes and parts but then overall... I found the movie rushing...They didn't focus on teh relationships between EVERYONE...>.< For example, They didn't show ant relationship between Alice and Bella. They didn't show any of it at all. I think that relationship is pretty importatnt because their relationship IS shown throughout all four books. You don't get to see much of bella's relationship with the cullen family actually. I knoe these are small details but during the car ride after meeting James, Emmett was suppose to try to comfort Bella in the car that everything will be ok. Those small things shows a lot of reltionship between Bella and the family. They didn't even show anything about Carlislie. His history reflects a lot in all four books. I thought it would be an important part that they'll have it in the movie. I think Jasper did play his role quite well though. He was able to kinda put himself in pain and alert when he's around Bella but then you don't even get to hear anybody saying anything about Jasper's abilitiy. Edward only talks about Alice seeing teh future and nothing about Jasper. I think Jasper needs more credit...LOL SO DOES ESME! hahah... She was suppose to explain how she died to bella during the baseball scene... but then there was like only two or three shots of Esme throughout the movie. They didn't explain anything about her as well. And Emmett... he actually fits into the role quite well but barely got to show and KNOW him. I can see that relationship between Bella and Rosalie but I don't think they SHOWED ENOUGH. I don't think they showed the cullens enough actually! hahahah It seemed like in the movie.. it was just trying to introduce EVERY CHARACTER from teh book but they didn't SHOW ANY RELATIONSHIPS between anyone cept Edward and Bella...IT seemed TOO RUSHED to just get all the characters out all at the same time.. like one after another. I think they should show the relationship between everyone so the actors and actresses develop MORE into their character.... That something i think they shoULD strongly WORK ON FOR THE NEXT MOVIE.... the relationships of EVERYONE ESPECIALLY EDWARD AND BELLA.
You couldn't really feel the love between edward and bella. Bella seemed too strong-willed in teh movie. Isn't she suppose to be more gentle.. i don't know what's the right word. But then throughout the movie.. i think Kristen didn't really protray bella's character that well. Bella is suppose be really clumsy and fall alot but she falls like two times in the movie. There were so many scenes where she was SUPPOSE to fall...(sorry.. i might have like memorized her tripping scenes in teh book.. LOL) But it LOOKED like bella WAS afraid of edward in the movie too. When you read the books it seem like Bella is MORE fragile right.. but it seemed that her strong-willed attitude took over Bella. Even though i think i saw some scenes where she was able to protray her kind welll but i think she gotta trip more! LOL haha it's like triggering the love spark between edward and her! LOL
But then, when you watch the movie.. it seems like edward and bella seems WAY too awkward with each other. I knoe they're kinda suppose to be awkward at the beginning but then it was shown throughout the entire movie.. I think she needs to show more love in edward though too because there were some scenes where it had these funny pauses and a lot of awkwardness. Somehow i just can't feel much love in the movie. It felt like they were FORCED to love each other and they don't knoe what to do. Even though this is like a first love thing and there SHOLD be awkwardness but then somehow you can FEEL that they REALLY love each other. They shold have like SMALL little details.. cause small details acutally makes a BIG difference...>.< When you read the book... the love with edward and bella EXPLODES love at you. I'm sorry i just couldn't really feel much in the movie. I think they might need to work on the love in every scene they did because the book was kinda mainly BASED on teh romance between them. It was based on teh first love, unrequited love, romeo and juliet love but I think the movie was too focussed on the action, the comedy they were trying to pull, and the introduction of every character.
The music was not bad fitting into the scenes but then somehow in some of the love scenes like the prom scenes where it's just edward and bella on teh gazeebo... i found that scene ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! i think that was my favourtie scene throught eh entire movie. It was very romantic and sweet but then somehow i think teh music toned downt eh romance between the two of them. I don't reember if it was playing bella's lullaby or another song but it seemed that it DID tone it down. Although i must say that bella's lullaby sounded very pretty! LOL i actually really like that tune... Althought I WOULD LOVE TO LISTEN TO ROBERT'S VERSION! LOL haha his random-playing-on-the-spot version. I like to see how that sounded actually..>.< if only they used it!
Even though i knoe the producers tried to make the movie seem close to the book but then having the scenes go out of order makes it harder to like the movie a lot! Yes, they DO have like major and popular scenes in teh movie but i think that fans would love it if it was SHOWN EXACTLY the way it was written in the book for example the meadow scene. I think it started off when bella walks past edward and he follows her into teh forest and they do that talk about... "ur pale white and strong speech.." and then he brings her to show how he looks in the sun and then does the breaking tree root and throwing it across the forest and like running all over the forest... ALL of that is suppose be in the meadow scene.. yess but then how they started it was kinda werid.. it didn't set the mood of their relationship. The meadow is suppose to be like an important scene to show the REAL love relationship between those two. Oh i must say this.. if this was a movie that's suppose to show the love between edward and bella.. hoe come they barely had kissing scenes?? they had only TWO... the intimate one in bella's room and the prom scene. Each kiss in the book shows how much love they give to each other like bella fainting in i think second one but i can't remember...>.< it's like saying... how he tooks her breath away or something..>.< but they share a lot of kissing moments in the book. And one or two shots of edward in bella's bed as she sleeps... it was like a flash in teh movie... and it doesn't even show her them communicating much. The movie only shows them being together... but no actions. It hard to prove the love if they don't show any actions. But i really think they should improve on showing the love for them. They're so important in the storyline. They are why there's a plot too...>.<
But i must say some of the actors and actresses DID capture their character such as Jasper, Alice, Emmett, rosalie, Carislie, Esme, Charlie (he really did well on protraying a protective father) haha basically the entire cullen family.. edward does capture the feelings and emotions but he's not showing the love in it.... and some scenes were done well..LOL i did enjoy teh cullens playing baseball even though they were missing some stuff in it like esme talking about her past.. and the prom scene... VERY SWEET.... i love the setting! LOL i actually really love the scenery that was taken in the movie! it was absolutely gorgeous!
I'm soo sorry that i wrote like an ESSAY critizing the movie...>.< I'm sorry if i said too much and you don't agree on some things that i wrote.. but this was just my opinion on the movie....>.< i still liked the movie it's just that i think they have some things they shold fix on if they continue with teh second movie. ESPECIALLY on relatinoships.. i can't emphasis how much they need to improve on that...>.< i hope they can put the movie IN ORDER....>.< BUT after watching the movie.. i couldn't get the movie out of my head.. LOL there were scenes that i would not mind watching over and over again... like that prom scene... sigh... GOOD ONE!
i just hope they'll improve and do well.. really well in the upcoming ones! But you knoe what! even though i'm somewhat dissapointed in the twilight movie i have faith they might be better and improve.. and i still continue to support them!
