    haha, don't feel bad. You're not alone there, I know a lot of people who don't re-read books. It's not something to be concerned about.

      I think the problem they're going to run in to with the BD movie is the (small) sex scene and the birth-giving scene. I mean they want to market this to teens and tweens so they're probably going to want to tread very carefully around those two things, which I think it's a shame since it's part of the book and I think it should be accurate in the movie as well. Just my humble opinion though. :)

        I'm with you Kathy. I'm usually a purist when it comes to making movies from books.

        I hope they make Breaking Dawn! I would be majorly pissed if they didn't complete the series. I guess a lot will depend on sales and if the Twilight Fever stays around. I'm kind of surprised that the movies isn't out on cable yet. I think I read that Showtime acquired the rights but isn't planning on releasing it until spring of 10. That seems a little silly, especially since New Moon will probalby be on DVD at that point!

          See this is where Stephenie was smart...her sex scenes are very subtle, with some fierce kissing then a sensual fade to black, leaving the imagination to run away with itself (which mine did, haha). So there shouldn't be a problem there.

          The birth scene, no way around it, it has to be bloody to be accurate. I think teens today can deal with far more than adults give them credit for, and a bloody birth scene should be okay. We'll have to wait and see. They could always do some clever camera angles focusing on faces and not on what's going on south of the abdomen, in an attempt to not traumatize the overly sensitive. I know my brain probably went way further with the blood factor than anyone aside from Rob Zombie could go.

          I just want Isle Esme and the wedding filmed, anthing else is icing on the cake.
