So I have the greatest Husband and he took me to Twilight, (note: without any prompting he just knew I really love the books) anyways I didn’t hope for too much just cuz’ I know the movies are never as good as the books and all in all I thought it was pretty good. At first Edward and Bella’s relationship was portrayed so awkwardly I was feeling awkward, but that was pretty true to the books and their relationship at first but for someone who hasn’t read the books,(my husband) I can see how it can just come across as bad acting, but as it carried on and they got more comfortable around each other it was great.
My biggest complaint was the music– It was terrible! Instead of building up tension or helping with the emotions in the film it felt like someone was sitting beside you playing their radio- distracting and annoying! And Bella’s lullaby holy crap they couldn’t have done worse I was expecting something just amazing with the piano as in how Stephanie describes Edward to be at the piano, something similar to the piano music on Pride and Prejudice where it is just jaw dropping amazing. No instead we get to hear clunking chords and randomly hit notes, made him look like he was just learning how to play, and the fact that it was carried through out the rest of the movie was horrible, during the Kiss scene it so ruined the moment when in the background you hear stupid clunking notes. The baseball scene music by muse fit well though I must admit, I just hope for New moon they get someone who actually does movie music that enhances the experience instead of trying to put together an album that has a lot of known artists so it’ll make good money on top of the movie.
The only other thing that bugged me was Edwards (Robs) teeth, what can I say I’m a teeth person and that’s usually the first thing I notice about people, and his were crooked and weird, Please get your teeth fixed and than you’ll be pretty much Edward to me:)
Holy super long post but I gotta say this.
Ya I’m a nerd *-already admitted it-* and I’ve been following the Twilight Lexicon, and so many of the news stories have labeled this as a tween fixation, just for 13 year old girls blah blah blah blah blah, And it really shows how horrible corrupt this world is when a movie that doesn’t have sex in it has a story of unselfishness and sacrifice, and shows a guy as being a protector, caring, loving, supporting, not just wanting action is labeled only appealing for tween girls. hmmm.
What do they think that older woman want to see people sleeping around, the pain of that, stupid men that are selfish and just care about themselves/jobs/or other woman, slutty fashion, or the sad things of this world in our love movies? Like it’s more grown up to sleep around, and be selfish, and career oriented, ect. ect. ect. Argh it’s frustrating to me, How Hollywood and these critics and newspapers and what else tell us what to think and what to like and what’s mature and better in their view, one of the reasons I stopped watching much T.V. is because of how much they are tearing down men now days in all of the shows. They are portrayed as selfish, stupid, lazy, just care about sex, unfaithful, not good dads and it goes on and on, and this is what the boys now days are shown, these are their examples of what they are suppose to amount to, it’s no wonder we’re having problems.
It seems like nowhere is it portrayed the greatness that men are and can be and how strong, smart, protective, caring, and unselfish that men are/can be. I mean obviously they are pretty special when Heavenly Father trusts them with the priesthood, His power here on earth! Its just sad to see how much Satan is attacking our men and boys.
Anyways now that I’ve totally went off on a rampaging spill back to Twilight, I liked it thought it was good, hope they change the music on the next one and that Rob gets his teeth fixed
