The more that Ithink about the movie, the more that I really do love it. I just have to keep reminding myself that Summit has only had, what, liek 5 movies out before this? I wasn't expecting a big budget film, so I wasn't as disappointed as some were with the special effects. I think that they could have done without the 6 Million Dollar Man running shots, and just shown them from another angle, maybe the front, and it would have been better. I also didn't really care for them running up and through the trees, but I can live with that, too.
Highlights for me:
Jasper... Oh my god. Jackson is beautiful. I was kind of iffy at first, after seeing the photos of him, but he was PERFECT. He reminded me so much of Edward Scissorhands, and it made me love him even more. The baseball scene was almost too much for my already over-reactive heart. lol
Charlie was great! I think that they did a great job casting him, and they brought out just enough personality to make him seem believable. I loved the Halo he was ringing around his head.
The whole baseball scene was great! I especially loved how Edward and Emmett were laughing and joking with each other after crashing into each other.
Bella's Lullaby! My heart stopped altogether.
Edward popping the dent out of Bella's truck.
Edward in general. I thought that Rob did a really good job with the script that he was given. You could tell that he had read and studied Midnight Sun. Some thought the smoldering looks were too much, but that's exactly how I had pictured it. And he had the crooked smile down perfectly. <3
Alice was great! So pixie-like and sweet!
I actually liked the flashback scenes. Them all decked out in their old fashioned clothes was nice.
The girl that played Jessica did a great job, I thought. Just the right amount of annoying!
The fight in the ballet studio! If only the other special effects were as good as the ones here! I thought it was great. Especially the floorboards flying up.
When it came to James - let's just say I'm happy they decided not to go with what the book had said about him not being remarkable looking! Cam is gorgeous, and I was all for that!
There are so many more things that I'm sure I'll think of! I need to see it again!
