Happy Thanksgiving to my American siblings! And Happy Thursday to everyone else!
Was planning on being here earlier, but just spent an hour speaking to SiL#1 on the phone LOL. Interupting my lexing time!!
So, last night at BD was, of course, really great. The cinema was heaving
! We had to sit down at the front, but it was actually ok. Meant that everything was bigger LOL and made you feel more like you were there, almost like an IMAX experience.
Anyways, if you are up for it, here is more of my BD gushing
! LOL (although I also have a few questions & stuff for people too!). So, from my notes I took (think my bf was embarrassed by me a wee bit for that LOL!):
Wedding kiss -
This is just simply...epic. I love it; I love that Flightless Bird
is playing (btw, why is the original playing & not the Wedding Version form the BD soundtrack??), and I love that the world disappears from them. The kiss itself is so deep that you almost feel as though you are intruding in a very private, very real moment. But you simply can't look away, as it takes your breath away with the beauty of their love.
Question: after the kiss, Rob says something - did anyone catch it? I don't know if it was Edward, or actually Rob, as it is very low & very fast.. maybe he was talking to Kristen??
Wedding speeches -
Again, completely hysterical!! Since the cinema was full, the audience was pretty good, laughing at all the right moments. Charlie of course owns this scene, but the look on both Rob & Kristen's face when Jess refers to Edward as "The Hair" makes me think that she may just have made that up there and then on the spot. They are just adorable!
Mike dancing at the wedding -
This is actually how he dances in real life!! LOL!!! Of course, I am guessing that he can dance regular too, but at the UK TwiCon, he danced like this. It was one of the funniest & sweet moments I have witnessed (remember the story of how he danced with the wee girl?? Too cute!).
I love how relaxed looking they are in the taxi. Again, Rob says something to Kristen while walking through the streets..any idea if it is real, or something Edward was supposed to say?
Turning Page & love scene -
I can't explain how perfect I believe this song is during this scene!! I love that it continues througout Bella's memories of the night before. The whole scene is gorgeous & truly perfect. During the close ups of the night (especially cos we were really close to the screen LOL), you could see that Rob & Kristen just.. fit. What I am trying to say is that, for example when they kiss, their faces fit together perfectly. My shipper heart & my Twilight heart is exploding with this thought! I LOVE THIS PART OF THE MOVIE! Beautiful!
Also, when Bella wakes up in the morning, and sees the destruction of the room, do you see her facial expression?? She is proud
LOL! Very sweet I think!
I have actually kinda mentioned this below to SuperJen
, but there IS some sparkling! Not nearly as much as you would have expected, but defo some (during the waterfall jump).
Imprinting scene -
This is something I meant to mention after my first viewing. To someone who hasn't read the books, I really don't think it came across that Quil had imprinted on Claire. I asked my bf about it afterwards (who hasn't read the books) and he said he didn't even notice that he was sitting with a toddler. I am guessing they showed this to both explain imprinting & also to introduce the idea that adults could imprint on people much younger than them. Do you think people would get this, who hadn't read the book beforehand?
"C'mon! C'mon!" -
Broken Edward = sad sad me!
Again, this part truly sticks in my mind. The devestation in Edward's eyes and the emptiness of Bella's... Some of Rob's finest acting in this scene for sure. And Kristen's, espeically when you do get to see that she is indeed burning with the pain (affect me more & more every time!). Such an intense & powerful scene.
Renesmee biting Bella -
Again, to someone who hasn't read the book, I don't think this was clear. I again asked my bf after the first viewing & he didn't realise it. Surely this is an important part, so that they can tell the Volturi Renesmee is not venomous? I don't think it helps that fact that it is out of screen & you just kind of hear that... why do you think they didn't show it? Too hard to do with CGI, or something to do with the rating?
Red eyes -
AAAGH! Seriously, this is how I feel at the end, like I'm going to explode or something!! I love that it ends like that, and even though we knew it was going to happen, and obviously I defo know now I have seen it, but I still am so "WOW!" when it does. Very powerful ending I think. LOVE IT!
So... think that's enough for tonight?? LOL. I just really loved the film, and I know you guys won't mind me going on and on about that fact.. I hope anyway LOL!
To the posts!
I'm glad that all 4 of you are back together for Thanksgiving - I hope you all have a lovely dinner together! Are you going anywhere, or staying at home?

I said something was missing! How could I not notice that? How could they skip it?
Actually there is
! It was very sutble, I only noticed it at the part where they are jumping off the waterfall. I forget to check when they are sitting outside playing chess... I really liked how they did the sparkling in Eclipse
though..thought it was quite perfect to how I imagined vampires sparkling in my head. I assume that they will have
to show Bella sparkling in part 2, as surely she would want to see herself??
Anyways, I hope your food you cooked for your parents thanksgiving was tasty! Yum!
Yay for reaching 1000 posts!!
Erm. Yes. Definately. I would LOVE to come to Australia!!!
I am sure I saw a new still today as well, one that wasn't in the film. And I really want to see the "breakfast scene" from Isle Esme... stills were released showing that ages ago. I really want to see all these on the dvd!! Keep our fingers & toes crossed!
I hope your thanksgiving went well! Did you help your mom cook?
EDIT: Sorry you aren't feeling too great!
AWESOME!! I love that you met up with Christina
!! Great pic of you 3!
Is that the first time you have been to HP land? I will have to check out your photos on fb!
Aw that was so sweet, I love what you wrote! Is BabyBoy's journal for him to read when he is older?
Ok I am off. Should go to bed, but really don't feel like it yet! Maybe I'll check out some ff updates for a wee while - and then regreat it tomorrow when I'm knackered! But at least... it's FRIDAY tomorrow! Best day of the working week
Anyways, I really am away now. Bye folks!!
