To me, it did look like Victoria was
tearing up some. Maybe from angry, and her mate did get killed. But I just LOVED how they showed her. i was NOT expecting that.
And when I saw the midnight showing, there were a lot of people there who hadn't read the books (yes, I was eavesdropping on conversations!), and I could hear gasps and stuff at the end when Edward leaned down to kiss her neck. haha I giggled on the inside.
Yes, I, too, was disappointed in the bedroom scene was Edward flies her out of the window instead of tackling her when Jasper and Alice walk in. I liked when Jasper and Alice walked in and she had her cute little line in the book.
I thought the "graduation cap collage" was VERY funny.
I loved when Bella went to meet the Cullens, and Emmett waved with the knife (SO FUNNY), and Rosalie broke the bowl.
I was sad that the Cullens' parts were cut out so much. My boyfriend has just started reading Twilight, and he has even noticed how cut out they are!
A few other scenes kind of disappointed me as well, but overall I liked it.
The so-called "meadow scene" really let me down. But my heart was pumping when Edward saved Bella in Port Angeles! hhaha
OHOH!! and, i was VERY SAD that the biology scene (blood typing) was not in there. that about broke my heart!!
I was also very sad there the airport scene wasn't in the movie. i was all looking forward to Bella racing through throngs of people, glancing over her shoulder to make sure Jasper and Alice weren't following her, and then showing a clip of Edward walking off the plane...with no Bella to be found. MAN, I wish I coulda seen that!!
My boyfriend has never read the books, and he thought the movie was pretty good (He's an Laurent, Emmett and Jasper fan, haha). He's not a big reader at all, and never really reads for fun (and if he does, he ends up not finishing the book). And he started reading Twilight the day before yesterday! He LOVES it so far.
I thought the humans were PERFECT. Mike was adorable. Angela was EXACTLY as I imagined her.
I about had a heartattack during the baseball scene was Jasper. he was SO HOT. Flipping the bat around with his little ball cap on. OHMYLAWD HE WAS SO FINE!!! haha
Maybe it was just me, but I feel like in the movie, they really just suddenly popped Edward and Bella into being so close. It showed them talking and all, but I really missed seeing all of those lunchroom conversations and the elongated Port Angeles Diner scene. I know in the book it took more time, and the movie, to me, it just seemed like 1) They meet, 2) He ignores her, 3) He saves her, 4) They're in love!
The while time I was sitting there, I was following along with the book. I went in knowing it wouldn't be like or nearly as awesome as the book. They had to combine scenes together and changed them around, and I realized it was hard to condense that book into two hours. So I have hopes for New Moon; maybe since Twilight did so well, they can afford to go all out on New Moon and maybe have it be longer. Hooray for the wolves! Hooray for Italy! Hooray for the Volturi! Hooray for Edward lookin' all fine! hahah
Overall, I did enjoy it, and I am going to see it again later today....after I finish a paper for my Sociology of Race & Ethnic Minorities class...EEK!!
