~Kate~ (katesbooklife) so this is my fave book and the film is up there in my top 5 films. i was pleased wiv the film but i was a bit gutted that sum of the best parts of the book was missing from the film like the blood type testing and the way edward carried bella 2 the nurses office was my best part of the book and i think it wud have worked well in the film.
i cant wait 2 see how new moon turns out as supposedly its close 2 the book!

I LOVED those scenes and was so upset they weren't in the movie too! I did however like the scene in the kitchen with the Italian food......"Is she even Italian?" "Her names Bella!" LOL I love that part. And the way they all react at the same time when Bella's scent hits them. Did you check out the deleted scenes on the DVD? I wish they would have left in the "wanna taste?" one and the scene where Carlise and Esme discuss how good Bella is for Edward.....sorry long comment...I LOVE TWILIGHT!

Shawn Mcmullin | 4 comments OMG I have read all the books and own the movie...I watch it every 2 days or have to watch it. yes the book is better...always is, but Im glad I watched Twilight first...because it really gave me a great visual of the characters while I was reading.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ รђ๏รђคภคђ  (shoey924) | 68 comments I thought the movie was kinda cheesy! It was painfully obvious how low budget it was and some stuff didn't hold true to the movie and should have (such as the circular meadow where Edward reveals what the sun does to him). That was disappointing! But, of course I loved it all the same simply because it was TWILIGHT! LOL, it could have been animated and still would see it. I can't wait to see all the rest of the films. My one real disappointment in casting was with Jacob. Taylor Lautner has turned more manly looking it seems for New Moon-Thank the Gods! But, I really hoped for Steven Strait to be cast as Jacob-he's just so beefy and beautiful! LOL! Oh well, can't have everything! :-)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) am like u i wud have seen this film ne how it was made and i still luv the film (big huge crush on rob pattinson) but i think taylor was perfect 4 jacob as at 1st jacob was just a human afterall and ohmygoodness does he look hot in new moon that body swoon

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ รђ๏รђคภคђ  (shoey924) | 68 comments LOL, I know he has definitely improved! It's just that I'm 32 so I have this image of Jacob in my head and he is more of a MAN! I think if Taylor and I see sharkboy! LOL!! But, he's pretty hot now, I must confess!

message 19: by ~Kate~ (new)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) lol, even being 23 i still feel like i shudnt be drooling over him but.....

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ รђ๏รђคภคђ  (shoey924) | 68 comments But... so what! LOL! Drip, drip!

message 21: by ~Kate~ (new)

message 22: by Shawn (new)

Shawn Mcmullin | 4 comments How funny...dont feel bad about being 23...I'm 37 and I think Edward (Rob) is the hottest thing ever !!! But to me his character and mannerism makes him extremely powerfully sexy

message 23: by ~Kate~ (new)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) i luv rob 2

message 24: by Shawn (new)

Shawn Mcmullin | 4 comments He actually makes my heart race...I think Rob is fantastic...but Edward is amazing...the character is so intense and powerful...I just love how devoted he is to Bella. The passion ugh...I have never cried so hard when he left her....I couldnt stop reading because I kept thinking NO NO he has to come back...It made my stomach hurt.

message 25: by ~Kate~ (new)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) i cried wen he left and am actually dreading seeing that in the film version i hate crying in public, i 2 read it quickly just so he was back in the book i missed him wen he was gone i bet that was wot stephanie wanted 2 happen 2 her readers

Oh my gosh I missed him too...I kept waiting and waiting and wondering when is he coming back...please let him hurry back and it made me hate Jacob!! I was so angry...I will definitely take tissues to theatre.

message 27: by ~Kate~ (new)

~Kate~ (katesbooklife) me 2 but hopefully i wont cry i will hopefully hold it in however i think i might get away wiv it as its at the beginning of the film, i didt hate jacob i thought bella was stupid tho if edward is the luv of her life y wud she need 2 choose it wud b a no brainer 2 me. i never thought he wasnt cumin back i read the last page 1st lol
