My mom was reading your post over my shoulder, by the way. She just laughed.
I caught the "What happened with Jasper was nothing, Edward!" thanks to the Quotes that Sound Dirty thread.
I can see I'm one of the first haters on here (spicey
I love you right now), and I hardly hate it. My overall reaction? Vaguely surprised. I think I came into the theater with such low expectations, it turned out to be a lot better than I thought it would be. At the very least, it was infinetly better than Twilight.
Some basic things I liked:
Music- Wow. They did an awesome job with the music. I particularly liked the flute (?) theme when Jacob was running around his house. Annoyed that Meet Me On The Equinox wasn't until the end of the credits, so I had to wait to sing along, but I Belong With You was playing and I could sing then!
The Old People Dream- super triptastic. I'd have peed myself if I were Bella.
At school- I figured out who Mike reminds me of! Shia La Beouf! They don't look alike, but they have similar facial expressions. Mike's just chubbier and not as hot. Jasper got actual lines too, woohoo! The R+J scene was okay, I still liked the couch in the book better.
Birthday- Emmett made me lol. 'Bout the only thing I liked there. Besides the fact that Alice is finally properly perky. And there was gore! YEAH!
Jacob's long hair- Am I the only person who would rather have Taylor with long hair???
Charlie- Oh, Charlie, how I love you. He's a good actor, that man is. So is Harry, for that matter, he made me laugh.
Time Passing- that was well done. The one downer- It doesn't snow in Washington!!!
Jacob Ab's- I think this is getting pretty thouroughly discussed so I won't say much, but I heartily enjoyed all of the butt shots. He wears his pants pretty dang low... "makes the girls go woot woot!"
Jessica- I LOVE how she just blabbers on and on and on and on and on... if Forks had cheerleaders, she'd be their captain. Also enjoyed the title of the movie they watched, zombies FTW.
Motorcycles- GORE! Now, where are the zombies hiding?
Movie Date- Super ROFL! "Marshmallow." was definetly an awesome line. And the movie they were watching?
Like, 20 dead people in 5 seconds, sounds hillarious! They had the Wilhelm scream, too!
Breakup #2- *headdesk* At least Taylor did it amazingly well. Jacob needs a hug. Big, giant hug, and I'll drag him away from the... dirty word!
The Pack- Not as hot as I expected, but still funny. In particular I love Embry, cuz HE has long hair (at one point). Don't you think Quil should have the longer hair, though, since his gramps is a tribe elder?
Jacob vs Paul-
That was beautiful. Here, I cried, and no where else. And I cried out of jealousy.
Emily- I liked her. They did a good job with the scars, and even if she doesn't talk a lot, she still sounds like Emily.
Volterra- The city is beautiful. I think they did a good job with the castle and stuff. The red cloaks and the planquin were a weird cultish touch, but I'll blame that on Chris Weitz. I'm making an assumption he has a similar mindset with Phillip Pullman, but I am probably wrong.
Save The Robert!- Okay, the glitter is still gay. At least its not as bad as it was in Twi. And I'm almost okay with "I love you, I can't live without you" thing happening then. Almost. It shortened up the movie, thankfully.
Shirtless Robert- When he took of his shirt, UGH. I'm surprised I didn't puke. All of my friends and I were yelling, "AGH MY EYES! THEY BURN!". He's almost as hairy as my dad.
The Volturi- Was expecting Demitri to be the tall one, but no biggie. And Alec was HOT, holy crap! Caius still reminds me of Draco Malfoy, Aro is most definetely the spawn of Denethor and Voldemort, with all their ugly and pedo-ness. Jane- super scary, yet I laughed at her.
Robert vs Felix- ROBERT GOT PWNED! And that's all that needs to be said. Ha. Ha. Ha.
The Vote- Robert's sooooo whipped. But I was looking forward to the big screen getting ripped in half!
Robert vs. Jake- ROB GOT PWNED AGAIN! HAHAHAHA! *sniffs* Taylor was so good, I'm now in desperate need of a Wolfy!Jake plushie. They HAVE to make one.
Bad things: There were a lot of bad things I didn't like, but I'm going to have to see the movie again before I remember them all, because there was a LOT and this post is huge enough. I'll take extensive notes and make a Bad post after I see it again.

Actually, it is in Romeo and Juliet. They use it in the Leonardo DiCaprio version, which is where DarkMuse
saw it. Verona Beach is set in Rio, I believe. *drools* I love that movie.
Nikki-- wrote:Ah, same here. I went to the midnight showing so I expected everyone there to love the story, but there were many people who were laughing all the way through (including some very emotionel scenes that I loved) and making rude comments. I tried to ignore it but it did bother me.

I apologize. I may not have been in the same theater as you, but I was still among the group of annoying people across the nation who wouldn't shut up. But I can't help that it was so ridiculously cheesy, I had to snort!
