okay, i keep posting all over the place what i thought about twilight, and i dont want to keep writing everything again and again. the movie. it was okay. i started getting really excited a few days ago, but i knew if i kept my hype that high, it would be no good. i chilled down.
i thought all the characters were great EXCEPT:
angie. not what i pictured at all, but she was okay
bella. omg really? eew. not at all. kristen cant even act, not convincing or talented.
rosalie. in the book, she is written to be strikingly beautiful. that chick? not so much. also, crappy acting .
no blood typing in class. i was really looking forward to that.
it bothered me how bella's realization was out of sync. in the book, she researched vampires and then talked to edward about it at the resteraunt, instead of buying a book, going out for dinner, reading shit online and then piecing it all together.
and that scene in the woods? was i the only one laughing my ass off? didnt like any of that at all. i thought them in the field was much more intimate, rather than edward pretty much freaking out, saying how horrible he was. and those cheesy sound effects when he was in the sun? OMG kill me know! i was practically in the aisles, rolling around in the smelly carpet!!
edward and bella were having such intimate conversations in public, like standing in the middle of the lunchroom? i dont know, its been awhile since i read twilight, and i cant exactly remember where that conversation took place... who knows, maybe it was in the lunch room. either way, it seemed like he was very unsecretive about his shit, the way he's talkin about it with people close by
the birthday party at the end, you have to have that! i dont know, there were so many things that wouldnt have been that hard to change about the movie. i do like how they introduced jacob at the very beginning as soon as she got her truck. (edit: okay, i thought this was in new moon, but my friend only read twilight, and she was asking where the birthday scene was. im guessing the book she had included the first chaper of new moon or something. lol, i dont know. still confused.)
nomad vamps. too much screen time. no need to have them throughout the entire movie. them making their first appearance at the baseball game would have been just fine. i do like how victoria was at the end at prom, but that shit would not go unnoticed by edward, or alice for that matter, so kind of off. in the book they didnt kill anyone in forks.
bella escaping from jasper and alice.... yeah, not dramatic at all. they never even went to the airport!! and no special little cellphones that they all communicated to each other with.
it was amazing when stephenie meyer was at the diner! (second time, when the waitress talks to charlie about the murder).
what happened to bella cooking dinner every night? i guess the diner has better food.... but every night? seriously?
loved jasper and emmett. what cuties. alice-- yeah, i knew she would be awesome :)
too much running around, and dramatic staring in silence with pretty scenery. there was too much time building up the woodlands of forks that could have been time spent on edward and bella.
i think jacob is adorable and couldnt be more perfect for that role. all ackward and shy, hahah! LOVE it.
when edward couldnt stop from killing bella. that was dumb. also, i liked it better when she blacked out in the fight scene.
at the car accident, wasnt that other dude supposed to be all bloody and shit? yeah, one drop of blood on his forhead. ahem.
and that glare between edward and jacob at the end! omg i loved that shit! i was laughing so loud! haha. im glad that jess, mike and eric brought so much comedy to the movie. yeah, it was cheesy shit, but you couldnt help but laugh.
yeah, i dont know. i think thats it. im exhausted, and its time for bed.
