"Twilight" Series and Movie Discussion--WARNING! Spoilers!

Recommended Posts

I'm an absolute Twilight junkie...it's sick, it really is. lol I'm more of a Rob Pattinson fan actually, but Twilight is a close second.

 

The more I watch the movie, the more pissed I get. They left out way too much information that is going to be needed to make the sequels work. Not to mention, they downplayed and screwed up Edward and Bella's relationship...the way the movie played, it almost seemed like he just had an allergic reaction to the girl, took some Benadryl and got over it in two weeks. Ugh. I better stop...I get crazy.

 

I've read all four books, pluse the unfinished fifth book the author started from Edward's perspective..it's on her web site for anyone who doesn't know about it. I also have complete pdf files for all five novels if anyone wants a book they can't find. Just pm.

yea im there with you on the downplaying.. she was always gasping for air *maybe breathing him in* but I wish they did more with their love story.. all in all, I enjoyed the movie bc I liked the book so much.. but Robert Pattinson..wow. He's the hottest pale guy ever

Haha, I agree. The movie was decent enough but they should have had more details that were in the book...oh well. I finished reading Eclipse and Breaking Dawn a few weeks ago. Eclipse is awesome, so soap-opera-ish haha. The entire series is so great...and so addictive. I read Midnight Sun too, soooooo good...I actually prefer reading from Edward's perspective rather than Bella's. I hope Stephenie Meyer finishes it someday. :)

I agree about the movie. I was having to explain a lot of it to DH. He was like why is he holding his nose? I know it was a lot to put in one movie but they just left out soooo much.

omg these books were soo great. i cant wait to see the movie, but i'm a cry-er so ill wait to rent/buy it wink.gif

 

i ALWAYS like the book version better than the movie tho, so we'll see how i feel about it.

 

the only thing i didnt like was in the 4th book, it kind of got out of hand with the whole marriage and baby thing, i was worried it was getting too hokey. but i guess it worked itself out in the end. i liked how jacob ended up imprinting with nessie, because im totally team edward, and i wanted jacob to back off the whole time! haha. i think i gotta go read those 12 chapters now, but man that will suck if she doesnt finish it! ill be craving it forever :)

just some FYI she is going to finish the fifth book bc the demand was so high. And they fired the director of the first movie bc of the bad reviews and special effects. So hopefully the new director will do better with the next one.

Abbie - you aren't a bad friend. I still haven't mailed Christmas gifts to MOH. I think her kids will out grow the stuff by the time it ever gets to her! I wondered if you finished them. I read each book in about a day.

 

I still haven't seen the movie. I figure I'll watch online or wait for DVD. I keep hearing that if you like the books, you'll like the movie, otherwise it is a little cheesy.

 

As much as I love the series and did sit at work and read Midnight Sun one day, I wasn't the biggest fan. I love Edward's perspective but it was a little to angst ridden. A finished copy should be much better. I do wonder though how far teh book will go. It pretty much parallels Twilight, but so much happens in the other 3 books, it's almost like we would need each of the others from Edward's POV.
