1. For New Moon not to be rushed
2. For the werewolves to look amazing
and 3. For it to be as close to the book as possible. Do you think we'll get any of that now?
With Hardwicke out, then yes, we just might get a better picture. The only probelm I see is that unfortunately Summit is still involved and with that idiot Feig stating that, rather stupidly, The Twilight world was realized and that since it was with the budget they gave out, then there will be NO changes in that area. How idiotic can one guy be!!!!
Even SM was upset with the special effects. Her story was NOT realized either by Summit or that terrible excuse of a director and screenwriter - PERIOD!!
What we got was a half-a** movie with close ups so bad that I could see whether there was a booger in Kristin's nose or the contacts that Rob wore and that hideous make-up. I mean, a mortician could have applied that better than whoever they hired.
Summit is in a bad way financially and they are hoping that they can create a great movie for a buck-fifty.
Dream on, Feig, dream on!!
I am still asking "Where is Stephenie Meyer??" She has been very
quiet since the movie. Maybe, resting and/or writing, but still she has been quiet.
You can not make a great movie when you alter the story and remove the essence from the creation and suit it to what you(Hardwicke) thinks it needs. If this was an Original
screenplay, well, then yeah, maybe, but not an Adapted
screenplay with a story so beloved and original as the Twilight Saga.
Someone made a comment that these were not great stories in the literary sense - well they were not made to be Pulizer Prize winners, these stories were from a dream SM had and she wanted to share them with us and as far as I am concerned not every piece of writing has to have a "Pulizer" base to be a great book for me.
The Twilight Saga is a wonderful series and well written.
If we have to wait for New Moon just so we can get an excellent director and possible lose that sorry excuse of a screen writer in Rosenberg, then so be it, I'll wait. New Moon needs to be the one to make up for that horrid film Twilight and give us hope that at least someone in the movie industry understands the saga and SM's dream. - and ours.
