Ignore me at any time, girls. I'm addicted and I love discussing all the books, so I tend to ramble in case ya can't tell. *how embarassing*
I don't know if it fully explains it, but in one of the books it is mentioned that Victoria has a talent for aversion, which could explain why Alice didn't see her coming. And no need to be ignored at all, I tend to ramble on myself far too often...my friends just laugh at me and let me go, but I have given them permission to physically stop me if I go on too long

I soooo agree! I tried to watch the movie with the commentary but had to stop, Hardwicke just drove me nuts! I'm sure she's a perfectly wonderful person in her own way, but I have never wanted to smack someone so much. I really enjoyed the movie myself (saw it eight times before it was released on dvd), but there are so many things she left out and without good reason.

Ahh...all the b.s. left out scenes. WHAT THE HELL was she thinking? NO mention of the Volturi? The most key part of the entire sequel? The culmination of the WHOLE moviehuh.gif New Moon is going to come off as being formula; like they just threw these badass royalty vamps in to stir up controversy for the sequel.


I mean, they didn't even mention Jasper's ability at all. How on earth can you go an entire film and mention nothing of what one of the key players in the sequels is capable of? It's not like Twilight (the book) glazed over Jasper's gift. It was discussed AND utilized more than once, so I don't see where this chick even came from just leaving it out entirely.

Not to mention, the meadow scene...oooye, my meadow scene. W.T. EFFFING EF??! lol Why the hack job? Could she not have taken that ten minutes, put them on a hiking trail...a real one, NOT 100 yrds from the damn school grounds, and let it just HAPPEN? The way the first movie treated their relationship, people who haven't read the books are likely going to go into the sequel not understanding the girls devastation when he leaves because it came off as flippin puppy love in the first film. She spent so much time adding crap that wasn't in the book, thinking it was going to entertain moviegoers, that she left out huge chunks of what needed to be in there.

I'm done. Thinking about this ditz is givin me a headache. I'm off to look for a TTD online....that's my current happy place...la la la la laaaaa!

LOL! I think you just covered all the things that bothered me the most. Oh, but I forgot, I was so upset she left out the Biology scene and replaced it with the field trip and the little dance in his room. Cute, but so not what the book felt like.

At least she cast Alice right. If she had gotten her wrong I might not be as forgiving (and I have been very forgiving in regards to this movie, I'm just a sucker I guess).

I totally agree with Savannah and Jenn! I still don't know why she changed Bella's whole "going to Seattle" thing alone and replaced it with "going to Jacksonville" that irks me EVERY TIME I watch the movie...still! angry.gif

OOoo, I do love Ashley Greene/Alice. She made Maxim's Hot 100 list a couple week's ago, and the pics were stunning! I think she makes a cute lil' Alice with just the right amount of pixie. I think I may have a girl crush...sshh..don't tell FI. Wait..he might actually like it, so nevermind. hahahaha!

I agree, Alice is perfect in the movie!! I also think Jasper was well casted. And Charlie! He was great in the movie. I also agree with you Savannah, I was annoyed with everything they left out, but I guess it is always like that with books to movies.

 

I am wondering how they are going to make Bella search and search for the meadow when in the movie it was right beside the school!?!

I'm so/so on Jasper/Jackson Rathbone. I LOVE him as an actor and think he's hot. But for Jasper...I think he's too small. Still, I can get past it.

 

They could have done better regardless of it being made from a book. Ofcourse, they had to condense. That's expected. The script for New Moon is BRILLIANTLY condensed and it doesn't leave out any key elements or information. Going into filming Eclipse, the audience will be well prepared because New Moon is gonna do a kick ass job of covering the bases that need to be covered AND compensating for the missing info in Twilight. It just pisses me off cuz it shouldn't have been necessary. Twilight could have been SO much better than what it was. Now we have so many people not understanding what all the fuss is about, because they saw this shitty movie after all the hype. lol That grinds my gears.

 

I'm off to hunt down Hardwicke's address:)
