ITA! I liked the movie the 2nd time around (even though I still want to punch someone in the face [Hardwicke? Rosenberg?] when it comes to all the things you mentioned...and more) but I learned to enjoy it as a movie. Like you said though, compared to the book it sucks hardcore. :roll:

I mean really, her hair...and a boob tattoo? Come on! Out of all the choices, I want to know who picked her. FAIL.
HAHA! That waitress was ALL WRONG! She wasn't even pretty.

I agree about the waitress. Her hair looked like a throw back to the 1940's pin-up girl.
No her hair looked like two loaves of bread and a chia pet gone wrong. She looked like a low budget version of Amy Winehouse two point no.

I was a bit diaspionted it wasn't as good as the book, but I still loved it as a movie. I think they did a geat job.
However here's one thing that stood out to me-
The Cullens have like a lot of money right? So I was expecting the house to be a little more grand.... and wasn't there supposed to be a giant curving staircase? I don't know. It looke a bit cramped and messy and....cheap. So not what I was expecting. I had hoped they would have made it a bit more spacious.

Yeah the house was kind of disappointing, i was expecting something much much bigger. Not only that but Edward's room hardly fit that sofa they put in there, how are they gonna fit a bed in there in Eclipse?

^^ That's a good point. And how are they gonna fit in the DJ booth thing in the party in BD?
Yeah, i imagined the house MUCH MUCH bigger than what was in the movie and I thought the house was supposed to be ancient? I forgot how Bella described it...I shall consent my book later. And Edward's room was MESSY, which is weird. I imagined Edward as more of a control freak and since he has so much time in his hands, you'd think he'd clean up more, right?
and, totally irrelevant but I don't see how non-readers who have watched the movie would like it, and would be encouraged to read the book after they see it. Because the charm of the book is not only Edward and Bella's love for each other, its about the Cullens too, and their mysterious ways, and they didnt really show that in the movie. Edward only described bits of his family like how they were vegetarians and how Alice is psychic and how he can read minds and stuff but what about the other Cullens and their enhanced "abilities"? And what about their backgrounds too? The mystery of Alice's "creator" and Carlisle's story about his transformation. That was really disappointing how they didnt put that in the movie.

yeah and I will never understand why they didn't edit that out or re-shoot the scene. What an easy fix.
Another fail.

Someone should get a screen shot of him eating and put "FAIL" on it, like all those "FAIL" pictures out there. ie failblog.org
Haha that's what I pictured in my mind

You know what? People who have never read the book before would have no idea why it's called Twilight.

I noticed that too. They didn't even mention why Twilight was important. Seems like they missed a lot of obvious things that needed to be included in the movie. Makes me wonder what people thought of the movie if they had never read the books. Would they have been able to catch on to everything or need help with some of the back story?
