I KNOW! I was watching the movie the other day, and this time trying to focus on the motion picture alone, without any expectations from the book. Almost like a person who had never read the book were to watch it for the first time with no previous information. The part where Bella confronts Edward in the woods and how he is clearly trying to convince her he is dangerous to her is just PLAIN ODD.mind_over_matter286 wrote:Wow, I don't know what to say it was like a boom of comments .I didn't really hear the accent, but he does talk weird. Well anyways, I was thinking and had this really wierd question just pop up in my head. It's kinda gross but so true. O.k, lets be mature about this.....o.k hear goes. What if Bella has her period around Edward? I mean seriously!!! Just think about it.edwardlikeshaystacks wrote:I couldn't agree with you more. They just focused on the, "I'm a vampire and I can kill you" part and didn't even bother to add the little things that show their growing romance. :/ which is probably why the line "I'm only afraid of losing you." came off as corny for me. But then again I should be yelling at the script writer for this...mind_over_matter286 wrote: Thanks, but I don't get why she stutters so much. And how they have music throughout all there conversations and Edward never eats at the lunch table with her just aggravates me. It doesn't show the stages of love that her and Edward have. Like when drive up to Seattle in the book, Edward just stares at her the whole time and Bella gets nervous. How everytime she looks at Edward she just smiles and her heart stutters. And at the beggining how she is scared to make a promise to Edward because he might ask her to stay away. They just did'nt capture the love that Bella and Edward share.
Did anyone else catch a hint of Robert's accent during the hospital scene where he says, "Was I supposed to let her just die?"
I mean, what would you do if some guy you met in biology stared at you like you killed his puppy, then disappeared for a few days? Next thing you know he's telling you in plain English "stay away from me, I'm dangerous". He's warning you, be afraid. What do you do? Personally, I would run as fast as I could. I would not let some guy drag me through the woods, off the cloud banks, where no one could find me, I don't care how hot he is. But that's just me.
And this is how the movie seems like. No chemistry, no sparks flying, no connection. Just a weird, intimidating guy and a "stupid lamb"of a girl who doesn't seem afraid of anything, even though we have NO IDEA why she is so attracted to TROUBLE.
Ok, I feel better now.
ABOUT THE PERIOD QUESTION, from mind_over_matter286:
I read on http://www.stepheniemeyer.com on the FAQ about either Twilight or New Moon, something along those lines came up. Yes, it would be difficult for Edward to hang out with Bella during those days, but one) he would be too much of a gentleman to say anything about it and two) she's just too embarrassed to talk about it with him. Although "technically" it's just "dead" blood, not the real thing. So there you go.
That was also a burning question for me!
