Re: Edward Cullen #6

I think what bugs me the most in the movies is that Edward seems irritated with Bella most of the time. A Twilight Movie example is in the greenhouse scene when he tells her to try to be a little more careful when she trips over something -- in a rather ugly tone. Edward would never have reacted tha...

Re: Edward Cullen #6

Yes, film does have it's attractions; as a visual learner, I love to see what I've been imagining. Watching Twilight's creation was a blast (my daughter was an extra in the film), but my enthusiasm has waned a bit more with each film. The plots seem to reflect less and less what I hold dear in the b...

Re: Edward Cullen #6

I try hard not to consider what happens in the movies when analysing the Twilight characters. Melissa Rosenberg is definately not Stephenie Meyer. I don't like what she did with the first three films, and I dread to think what she's done to Breaking Dawn.

Re: Romance in Literature and on the Screen

As I think about this, more dimensions of what translates into a truly romantic relationship come to mind. Something my husband and I have been talking about recently is communication. He has a hard time believing that when I ask him a question, I really do want a straight answer. I'm not beating ar...

Re: Edward Cullen #6

I agree, LateToTheParty ; even though Edward makes mistakes like anyone else, he has a great deal of integrity (well, except he's a very smooth liar! ... and engages in criminal behavior ...) and lives by high principles (except when he doesn't!). BTW, welcome to the Lex! I hope you enjoy your time ...

Re: Edward Cullen #6

This morning I was reflecting on my favorite "Edward moments" -- they all come in the last half of Breaking Dawn . There's a reason for this . . . During the rest of the Saga Edward is consumed by fear. He's never relaxed and free from the worry that "the reason for his existence" is safe and secure...

Re: Edward Cullen #6

. . . concern about the cumulative effect on our imaginations of lots and lots of similar portrayals. That is: even if in each instance, we can shrug off (say) the portrait of a high-handed romantic hero ("for heaven's sake, he's 107 years old and a vampire!"), if that same type recurs in book afte...

Re: Edward Cullen #6

I think it's interesting how different people apply what they're reading to their lives. I live in the worlds of the books I read -- while I'm reading -- and some of what I have thereby "lived" does bleed over into my real life; but at the same time, I am able to read stories in fantasy and science ...

Re: Romance in Literature and on the Screen

I don't dispute Harry's love for family and friends, but I remember many times when his getting the job done was more important than relationships: a classic red characteristic. The example that comes most readily to mind is when Ron was such a brat over Harry's name coming out of the goblet of fire...
