        Hmmmm....not overly impressed I must say. But like I said before, I dont usually like the movie after I've read the book.

          The movie is a tough sell for a lot of people. I'll admit there are parts I roll my eyes at, but there are enough parts that still make me get all excited (cafeteria scene; baseball; pretty much anytime Charlie is on the screen, he's so funny; fight with James) that overall I really enjoyed the movie. I still prefer the book to the movie by far, but I loved getting some visuals to go along with the written. That way, I can work them around to suit my purposes when I go back and re-read for the sixth time.

          Now if New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn could just hurry up and be released in theatre I'd be a happy camper.

              Jen, what do you think about the controversy over Breaking Dawn? I've read that Setphenie Meyer thinks it needs to be 2 movies to cover everything but the studio will only approve 1.

                Ugh - I think they cut too much out of movies as it is! If they try to cram two books in one movie it's going to be a disaster!! Especially with EVERYTHING that happened in the last two!!

                  Each book will get a movie, but the author is saying that the last one needs 2. I can totally see that or it will be a 3 hour movie, not that Twi-hards will care! LOL

                      I think the studio should listen to Stephenie. If the last Harry Potter can get split into two, I don't see why it's so hard to do the same for Breaking Dawn.

                      HOWEVER...

                      There is a lot that can kinda be skimmed over in Breaking Dawn...not necessarily cut out, but do we really need to have the entire Jacob section filmed? Don't get me wrong, I laughed so hard reading from Jacob's point of view, but a lot of it is just his thoughts, his wonderings, and that can't really be filmed.

                      In a perfect world, the first part of Breaking Dawn would be a movie, and then the second and third parts would be a second movie. If that doesn't happen, well, we can cross our fingers that whatever screenwriter gets the job (likely Melissa Rosenberg since she's done the other three) will be able to condense Breaking Dawn properly.

                      I guess we'll just have to wait and see. There's no word on whether Breaking Dawn will be done yet, which concerns me since we knew about Eclipse very shortly after New Moon was made official.
