warning there might be some spoilers but not on purpose
I just saw this movie tonight (i know you are so jealous of me & no it was not the midnight showing- thank you very much Sommer) & it's too late to really get into it so I'll leave you with;
Okay so I should have brought my pen & paper to the movie because I'm way too opinionated. SO, the things I liked- the cinematography & scenery- I need to move to Washington state
I was not willing to like the casting but I ended up not minding the actors who played: Esme, all the forks friends & I know Nic didn't like Eric being Asian- I didn't picture him that way but it worked, Emmett was okay, and I actually didn't mind Alice & if it wasn't for some of the acting which I am going to blame on the director Edward was alright. & lets see hmmmmm- oh *my testosterone showing* the stunt driving was pretty cool they should have had more of that.& I liked the Cullen home but just because I like that modern style it is not what their home is like in the book hello could we stick to the book?
Now everything else: Bella- annoying surprise surprise, Carlisle & Rosalie- supposedly the most beautiful of the bunch- not in the least (I'll get to her clothes later) & bless Jasper's heart. Charlie & the Renee- no thank you. I'm sort of on the fence with Jacob- there is no way they can use the same actor for the future movies- no way unless in the next year he hits his growth spurt. & Victoria was dressed way too nice & just not "wild" enough- they put that stupid fur cape on her to probably make up for that but it didn't work it just made her look like a fashion victim. Oh the wardrobe- who was in charge of that? they need to be fired all they had to do was turn on Gossip girl to figure out what to dress people in!(but of course it wasn't that great in the book either ie: byu zoobie style from 1996)-Rosalie the '80s called they need their acid wash pegged jeans back, bella- when you're that poor I'm sure you can't afford Hunter rain boots and pull down your dang HAT!!! PULL IT DOWN!!! & nice prom dresses why the boob reference? Also nice cameo ms Meyers (did you get that thesaurus I sent you?) Alfred Hitchcock & M. Night Shyamalan did it better- stop trying to fill their shoes your feet are just too small.
Now my biggest beef- Did NO ONE directing, acting in or working on this movie read the book??? I realize that sometimes movie people feel the need to change things from the book to make it a better "movie story" but come on! You added parts about the other vampires that weren't necessary. The acting at some parts made me wonder if you understand what being "upset" means. And Edward actor you are attracted by Bella's smell not repulsed, it looked like you were smelling a decomposed skunk laying on top of a pile of poopy diapers in the dead heat of summer. there were just too many discrepancies to name- OHHHH!!
But at least I did get a good laugh at the end and apparently I'm the only one who thought it was funny- the awkward couple in the gazebo- I don't know why but I got the giggles after seeing them- oh good times
Now I'd like to apologize to everyone who was sitting around me, I'm pretty sure I ruined it for all of them.
Next time I'll buy the popcorn & try my hardest to keep my "ughs & blahs" to myself
