Which Twillight Scenes Would You Reshoot

Kara Warner from MTV put out a request on Twitter yesterday asking “If you could have any scene in any of the previous films re-shot, which one would you revamp?” There’s a really great write up on MTV with the results. Two of the items that the Lexicon tweeted were also covered by others: The Meadow Scene in Twilight and Bella and Edward’s reunion in New Moon.


In light of the news that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are headed back to the “Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ set for a few re-shoots, this week’s Twilight Tuesday posed the question: If you could have any scene in any of the previous films re-shot, which one would you revamp? (Pun intended!)

As always, the members of the knowledgeable and passionate “Twilight” fan community responded to the query with gusto. Some folks want to see extended versions of their favorite scenes, some are still displeased with the book-to-film adaptation in certain areas and some requested they re-shoot entire films altogether. But there are two scenes that a majority of fans agreed could use a makeover: the meadow scene in “Twilight” and Edward and Bella’s reunion in “New Moon.”

Check out the details on MTV.


  1. Christina says:

    I would reshoot the scene in Breaking Dawn where she turns into a vampire. I still REALLY don’t get the incredibly poorly done CGI vein scenes. The entire scene would have been more effective had Kristin been simply reading from that part of the book, or having some sort of internal dialogue about not screaming, or overhearing all the dialogue around her with a clock ticking in the background…the way they chose to do it, with the “venom” moving through the “veins” was so poorly done I lol’ed.

  2. Twilibrarian says:

    Who knew? When Twilight was first filmed, did you think it would be the juggernaut it became? I sure didn’t. Now, here is how you refilm it: make it “Midnight Sun.” Tell the story from Edward’s perspective. Tell it to Renesmee. Sort of a bedtime story, how I met your mother.

    I agree, the backstories could have been much stronger, but directors and screenwriters twist things we love about the books to try to make the story flow on screen. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I missed “blood typing” (“You can smell the blood?”) and hated the field trip. (“You can Google it.”) I missed the paralyzing desperation Bella feels when Edward leaves, but I also missed the devastion he feels when leaving her TO PROTECT HER, not abandon her. Jacob needed to fight harder, like he does in the books.

    I missed Alice’s & Bella’s relationship. I would have loved to see “the sex talk” between the boys: compassionate Carlisle, emotion-controlling Jasper, Emmett being himself. BD1 needed some humor. Charlie’s reaction to the engagement was a huge hole. While the wedding was all I’d hoped for, I would have played up the naivete of Bella’s human friends. Nobody notices the eyes, the buff wolf-pack or the cold skin?? Jessica’s pregnancy comment was priceless.

    The critics have ripped all the previous films for whatever reason they can think of. Let’s hope and pray that with some critical reshoots Condon succeeds.

    Oh, and while we’re on the topic of movies…..a little film series called “Harry Potter” gave us Rob Pattinson. (Thank you, HP!) C’mon, admit it. You read and watched all the HP books/movies; you wouldn’t be a TwiHard if you didn’t. It goes without saying, we TwiHards have gotten on the Hunger Games bandwagon, too. So, wouldn’t it be spectacular if the Twilight Saga gave XAVIER SAMUEL (Riley Beers in Eclipse) the “Rob Pattinson treatment,” and helped cast him as Finnick O’Dair in “Catching Fire” and “Mockingjay?”

    That’s the opinion of this 61 year old magical, hungry high school “twilibrarian!!”

    • JustMe44 says:

      I have to say I agree with everything you said except the thing about Xavia Samuel. I thought his acting was horrible in Eclipse. I cringe everytime I watch it. And to cast him as Finnick O’Dair… oh me, oh my.. just no. I could not handle that.

      • Twilibrarian says:

        I’ll agree to disagree. I liked Xavier Samuel in Eclipse. But again, Riley is a much stronger character in the books (thanks Stephenie) than in the movie (boo Melissa.) If you aren’t given the right words to say, and the right scene in which to act, you cannot blame the actor. The screenwriter & director share some of this blame.

        • Christina says:

          Riley was HOT. He should totally play Finnick–though I always pictured him with blonde hair? I can’t remember if it says what hair color he has in the books or not, that’s just how I personally pictured him. Dye Xavier’s hair and let’s go! Lol!

        • JustMe44 says:

          Okay, I can agree with you about the screenwriting and directing. And I’ve also not ever seen Xavier Samuel in anything else to base his acting off of. I think my expectations were kind of high for his part b/c I didn’t get to see the movie until a couple weeks after it had been out, by which time I had already heard all this great stuff about how good his part was played. I just couldn’t really agree with that. I wouldn’t mind to see him in other parts in other movies. My concern is mainly due to the fact that I want Finnick’s part to be played by an actor that has impressed me in something else. But more than likely I will not even know the actor they cast as Finnick and just hope for the best. If Xavier can pull it off, then I’m all for it. I just wouldn’t want to choose him based on his acting in Eclipse.

  3. A few more things that have come to mind after reading all these great comments: The thing that bothered me the most about Eclipse is the FAKE SNOW. Poor Bella was shivering like mad in the tent, and then, the next day, they are hanging out in the snow waiting for Victoria to show and she doesn’t even shiver, even though she’s not even wearing a heavy jacket.

    In Breaking Dawn, I am still mourning the loss of the “Fido” dog bowl scene, and the whole dynamic between Rosalie and Jacob. It was so beautifully done in the book and I laugh out loud every time I read it.

    The one thing I think of when the first movie comes to mind is “purple”. It’s so PURPLE.

  4. Twilight – The scene where Bella slips on the ice. You can see Kristen’s knee pads under her jeans and it kills me. I also hate when Edward is talking with Bella in the hallway at school and he mutters something about the fluorescent lights and LITERALLY runs away.

    New Moon – Didn’t love Bella crying in the woods. The rest of the movie, I love.
    Eclipse – Obviously anything with Kristen’s wig. It is particularly bad in the scene with her mom when Renee is giving her the quilt. I also like BDH, but not as Victoria. I absolutely hate the part where Victoria dies and her face breaks like a porcelain doll and then Edward pulls out a lighter and there is a huge fiery explosion? Are vamps flammable or something?

    BD – I really loved BD. I didn’t like the scene at the beginning with Edward and Bella talking about cold feet and Edward remember his days at the theater.

  5. I want the part in New Moon where Edward gave ths speech, “Before you Bella, my life was like a moonless night…” you know readers what I mean. It’s just the speech was so beautiful I was sad when they didn’t show that on the movie.

  6. I also miss the Charlie – Alice friendship. :)

    • Yes!!!! I loved those moments. Alice and Emmett were my favorite characters and I feel like the makers of the film only wanted to focus on the love triangle than to let us in on the Cullen family more…. Hopefully they are going to make it better in BD2…. :D

  7. radiowidow says:

    Ok, I know this is a minor thing compared to the other things discussed here, but I cringed looking at what they did to the character Carlisle’s hair in Breaking Dawn.

  8. I must admit for me it was the wolf pack scene in BD 1 when Jacob says ‘I- will-not-fight. I am the Grandson of Ephraim Black…’ CRINGE!!!! apart from that i loved BD (incidently I regularly think of how I would reshoot that and im not sure i have come up with a better alternative (yet) but that sequence makes me cringe.

    Also i love Chris Weitz but the costumes in New Moon were awful (yes Alice the world best dressed vampire looked terrible) and I also would reshoot when alice comes to bella’s house after bella cliff dives, i would have loved to have seen Bella cry and better interaction between jacob and alice.

  9. Lynne Stringer says:

    Motorcycle scene. Enough said.

  10. For starters, and this would be behind the scenes, fire Melissa Rosenberg and either hire someone that can remain neutral or is Edward biased since MR, SM and Summit seem to be Team Jacob. And fire the charming marketer/suits that decided to really push the “love” triangle”/teams.

    Any vampire scene post Twilight except the scene with Laurent in NM to get consistent hair and makeup as each film seems to progressively get worse for the Cullen’s, especially the wigs for Nikki, Peter, Jackson and Ashley. I would also insist that either Rachelle Lefevre returns as Victoria or someone that looks like her instead of Bryce Dallas Howard as I think she was only hired because of her name to play Victoria in EC. (Personally, I don’t care if she was the original choice for the character, she turned down the role of Victoria. If Summit really wanted her in the movies once she voiced interest, she should’ve been cast as like Tanya or one of the BD vamps.)

    The meadow scene in the first one as that was my absolute favourite part of the book and what inspired the entire series; I think what we saw is one of the biggest reasons the general public mocks the series. I would also drop the sound when Edward sparkles in the first one, and tone down the sparking a bit.

    Add in the Alice/James subplot to the first one, even if it was just in passing by James to give another reason as to why he wants Bella dead and doesn’t like the Cullen’s.

    Add more scenes in the first one that follow canon as to how Edward and Bella came to be. And really, if Bella is going to have a Mac, find another plausible reason as to why she’s going with the girls for dress shopping rather than for a book to look up a single word before going back to Google and searching that word. Add more of the reunion and following scenes from NM in.

    Make Bella’s wardrobe slightly more feminine by having Bell wear a proper dress shoe to prom instead of the sneaker she wore even if it were a ballet flat, and wear more girly tops. Absolutely no plaid whatsoever.

    Drop the motorbike scene from EC unless a slightly more canonical one is used instead of making Bella look like a two-timer by getting angry with Edward before jumping on the back of Jacob’s bike.

    Don’t have Bella telling Edward to shut up at the vote scene in NM. Additionally, make Bella’s speech in EC follow what was present in the book more rather than making it seem like the only reason she wants Edward to change her is because of wanting to be a vampire.

    Make references to the book titles like they did in the books for EC and TW in the movies.

    Either find Rob a razor for the first and third movies or insist that he keep similar facial hair throughout the series.

    Make more of Jacob’s book personality shine through rather than whitewashing,IMO. Especially in BD. I felt that part of his anger at not being the one Bella chose wasn’t present. Much like I would have more of Edward’s book personality present since he’s seen as an angry, overbearing jerk where as Jacob is presented as the sweet underdog that Bella should’ve chosen.

    An actress playing Bella that doesn’t constantly have a sour look on her face since the only time that Kristen seemed to fit Bella, IMO, was in NM. In BD when Bella and Edward were going on their honeymoon,Bella shouldn’t’ve looked so upset in the car.

    A reason for the voice over like in NM where we see Bella writing emails to Alice.

    Bella’s Lullaby. Aside from expecting something epic, it should’ve been something that each different score composer used to tie all the scores together much like they could with Hedwig’s Theme for HP. I was kinda disappointed with the EC score since it was Howard Shore (who did the wonderful scores to Peter Jackson’s LOTR), and NM score by Alexandre Desplat (who later went on to do the final two HP movies). Additionally, I loved the indie band feeling that was present in TW and felt that the last three soundtracks have been too commercialized. These might not be cause for reshoots, but they still bother me to no end.

    Find a way to make the mountain kiss between Bella and Jacob less cringe worthy in EC, even if what we got was the reshoot (that SM reportedly wanted because the first one wasn’t steamy enough for her liking).

    There’s probably more, but I honestly cannot think of them right now.

  11. Gay Bunnell says:

    For sure the Meadow scene. Twilight in general needs to have a remake. I love Catherine and I’ve even met her, but they missed on Twilight. Also, I never understood why they didn’t use more from the books and just increase the time on the movie length. Gosh Hunger Games is 2 hrs & 22 minutes long and those books aren’t nearly as long as the Twilight books!!!

  12. You all are wrong lol. The part in New Moon where they randomly brought up Jasper’s ability. ( didn’t read all the comments so I don’t know if anyone mentioned this scene) Here’s a list though.

    Re-vamped (not in any special order or anything, just as I think of them):
    1) Meadow scene (Twilight)
    2) Hospital scene after fight with James (T)
    3) Intro to Edward and Bella meeting in class (T)
    4) Scratch from 1-3… Why don’t they just re-do the first forty five minutes of Twilight. All the acting in those forty odd minutes sucked major you know whats. After Bella finds out about Edward being a vamp, things get better. However, they should re-do the intro to the family scene with the awkward cooking.
    5) I for the most part think that New Moon is the best movie they made so far. HOWEVER, the scene where Eddie gets his ass kicked at the end…. Bella describes him in the book as pretty much indestructible…. he’s her protector, if he gets beat up all the time, it makes him look bad.
    6) The awkward fight (?) can I even call it a fight? In Eclipse where Jacob gets punched and Jacob and Edward do this awkward hug type thing, where they claw at eachother’s shoulders…. That seems like bad acting to me. Kristen was halfheartedly like, (barely touches Eddie’s shoulder) “Edward, no….. don’t harm Jacob….. please. Don’t….” lol not really quoted but I don’t know. In the book, she mentioned that she kinda would like them to get into a fight cuz Jake would deserve it…. so maybe that’s what KStew was trying to depict.
    7) In Breaking Dawn they need to re-do how Renesmee looks because I thought she was supposed to have longer curly hair. I like Mackenzie a lot but I think she’s too old to play Renesmee.
    8) CHANGE THE WHOLE part with Jake leaving the pack in BD. It made me laugh the first time I saw it….
    9) Look on Bella’s face when she breaks her spine from Renesmee had me almost rolling laughing. They need to have KStew re-do that scene. lol Her belly just kinda pops up and her spine goes in an awkward place….. cracked me up. Don’t know why, just bad acting I suppose.

    Stuff they needed to add!!!!
    1) In Twilight they left out the whole James and Alice bit.
    2) Bio/ Blood typing scene
    3) They left out major convos with Eddie and Bella…. they had loud music instead of letting us in on what they were talking about. I’m really sad that they left out the convos that had when he was driving her to school.
    4) Jasper’s ability shoulda been in Twilight but they threw it in New Moon for some stupid reason.
    5) Alice getting to be the maid of honor in Eclipse. This part made me smile, was the end of Eclipse where Bella tells Alice that she can be the maid of honor and such.
    6) I can’t remember, but I do believe they left out Emmett’s story from the movies.
    7) The before car in BD.
    8) Bella telling Charlie and Renee about the proposal. Greatest part in the book!!!! lol
    9) The psycho kids who wanted pics of her car.
    10) The Rosalie and Jacob parts in BD…. “FIDO!” lmfao, my favorite parts in BD centered around it.
    11) Bella’s dreams about the kid in BD were missing.
    12) As happy as I am with Melissa for leaving this part out, I remember in the book that Eddie wanted Jake to offer pups to Bella lol as long as Bells aborts Renesmee. I’m glad she left it out…. but it was in the book nonetheless.
    I may have missed a LOT but I couldn’t think straight. These are just my opinions so hopefully I haven’t offended anyone. Have a good day EVERYONE!

  13. I agree with most of the above comments, but what got me was how depressing New Moon seemed. Yes they were going through tough times in the books, and it was necessary, BUT there were way more happy, loving, and joking times. Edward looked like he had diarrhea in most of New Moon, it was like he wasn’t capable of being happy, or they showed only most of the depressing scenes. I was always team Edward in the books-no question about it, but as far as the movies he just seemed (most of the time) depressed.

    AND the kissing scene in New Moon after her birthday party was awful, and it sounded awful.

  14. Does anyone every question why Edward was made to look like such a weak fighter? In the boots, he was protracted as being a mind reader that could anticipate a person move and react so quickly, he couldn’t be caught or fought.

  15. Vampire-girl says:

    The Meadow scene in Twilight looked like a field, not enough flowers. Eclipse was lovely meadow.
    New Moon better reunion.
    Eclipse – Bella would not have left Edward standing there.
    Breaking Dawn – Edward’s back story was misplaced. I loved how in the wedding everything disppeared when they kissed like Bella says it’s just Edward and herself in a bubble.
    What did they do with the sparkles in BD just before they jumped off the cliff into the waterfall, I really hope they don’t use that for BD2 as the sparkles were better in NM and Eclipse.

    I don’t agree with they should fill the entire series because then different actors would be used and people would be bashing them before it started.

  16. Melissa Rosenberg butchered these movies. They had all of the ingredients for a well done, if not juvenile, series, and boy did her presence destroy it. I’m sorry, but the dialogue in the films is beyond bad. It’s embarassing! Eclipse… dear goodness. That was just painful to watch. BD1 was better, but the sappy bedroom scene just sucked the life out of the characters. And that is what we loved about them. Their humanity. Instead, we got poorly written, one dimensional mush factories. Stephanie should have paid her way out of that contract.

    • I agreed. I have always always said that Melissa Rosenberg should have been fired after the first movie. People who have watch the movies only think they are bad because of the source material. It is not true. The books are so beautiful and unforgettable. Edward is one of the greatest characters to come along in the last 20 years and we who have read the books will never forget him. What Melissa has done to him should be a crime.

  17. Don’t know where to begin. Everyone above, have done a perfect summary of the problems with the meadow, blood typing, reunion scenes, fights that never happened, etc., so I won’t repeat those. Instead, I tell you all of the above mentioned problem come down to two things; Writer and Director.

    Catherine and Melissa, hated Bella. They have said before, that they thought she was whimpy; That Bella was not an independent feminist, because she took care of her dad (cooking, cleaning), was too clutzy, quiet, and let people walk all over her. She was not a good rolemodel.

    The Bella from the book, was kind, thoughtful, very intelligent, independent, morally strong, loyal, brave, and humble. Sounds like a fantastic rolemodel to me. Yet, Catherine and Melissa decided those traits were whimpy, and not those of a modern woman.

    THAT was where all the problems started. They did not understand the character. They didn’t like her, and decided to rewrite Bella into their own ideal teen protagonist. She doesn’t cook for her dad, she talks back to Edward, blood doesn’t make her woozy, and she doesn’t have 2 left feet.

    As a result, movie Bella lost her relatability. She looked like a pathetic, flustered, little girl pining over an angry guy who dumped her. Very opposite of the book character.

    Book Bella was mature for her age, because she grew up with a flaky, irresponsible mother, who couldn’t cook, forgot to wash clothes, and was nothing but a big kid herself. Bella HAD to grow up fast – she learned to cook, clean, make adult decisions, like paying bills, and take care of herself and her mother. How is that not independent?!

    You know what else, she didn’t do any of those things grudgingly! Where some would whine that they had a tough life, she did it out of love and concern for her mother. THEN, Bella chose to move across country, to an unfamiliar place (it had been years since she’d been there, because she hated the rain), so that her mother could be with her new husband.

    If you’re going to have a problem with someone, let it be Rene, NOT Bella. Rene was the crappy mom, but compassionate Bella, doesn’t look at it that way. And, she doesn’t even stop to complain or think about it, when those duties move with her to Fork’s. Charlie proved he couldn’t cook, and so, to prevent starvation, she took over the job. Oh, and what’s wrong with a kid doing chores? When did that become whimpy?

    The Twilight movie lacked the bonding moments,which Melissa and Catherine didn’t think were important; blood typing, discussions at the lab table, talks in the car and in the restaurant, talks in the cafeteria (Edward Cullen is looking at you!), hiking to the meadow (their outfits matched and they didn’t plan it!), back in his room (“I don’t sleep, but if I did I’d dream about you” – tell me your heart didn’t skip a beat when you read that line!). These, and others, were the moments where Bella and Edward were falling in love, and we missed all that. Instead, we get a few choppy scenes of them chatting, and then we jump to the “Meadow” where he gets mad at her, and we are expected to believe that they’ve fallen in love.

    Know why those were left out? Catherine said, that no one wants to see people sitting around talking. Yea, those type of scenes in movies never work out, and end up as failures. Hmmm… The Breakfast Club, The Notebook, 16 Candles, Pretty in Pink – should I go on? I can name much more serious fare; 12 Angry Men and A River Runs Through It. All movies where people spent large amounts of time, sitting/standing around and just talking. But, apparently, no one likes to go to those type of movies, so Catherine and Melissa knew those scenes had to be scaled down or left out, to keep the momentum of the movie going. Sigh.

    Ok, I didn’t hate the movies. I was disappointed in Twilight, but I’ve watched the movies get better and better. The problem is, the writer hasn’t changed. Melissa, is a woman who preferred Jacob over Edward, can’t relate to either Edward or Bella, and as a result, can’t do a decent adaptation of what the characters are truly all about.

    What do I want redone? The entire first movie would be a good start, without the handcam, blue tint, and music video style quick editing. Also, a screenplay which shows the characters from the book, as we love them; Quiet, smart, but pretty Bella Swan, never really fit in living in Phoenix, but a move to Forks, WA, causes her to meet Edward – a shy, intelligent, and extremly handsome young man, whose looks and mannerisms seem from another time- perhaps even otherworldly. After he saves her life, they slowly fall in love, but can their love overcome Edwards huge secret- that he’s a vampire. That’s the basis of the movie. That’s what I want to see, but this was missing from the movie.

    Instead, we got a poor summary, of their version of the book.

    I don’t get it. Why can’t people just follow the book? Is that so hard to ask?

  18. It’s odd, Twilight seems to be the movie least liked by fans, and yet for all it’s major flaws (meadow scene is a given, as is the lack of blood typing) isn’t this the movie we’ve hyperventiliated over the most? I know it’s the one movie in the franchise that could legally claim squatting rights inside my DVD player, that’s for sure.

    I think CH really nailed the atmosphere, and a chemistry between Rob and Kristen was extremely evident. It kept that movie in the machine for a long time. None of the other movies have really done that for me.Though I would add that I loved the wedding prep in Alice’s room and the ceremony itself was beautiful. Kristen in particular was amazing.

    I would change the New Moon reunite – there was a magic missing from that moment when she sees him with the white shirt at his feet. Despite admitting that she may have been able to make a life without Edward, that was the moment when you knew she needed him.

  19. - Twilight: The ‘I know your a vampire meadow scene’
    - New Moon: The Bella/Alice reunion scene for reasons mentioned by numerous others.
    - New Moon: Edward getting his ass kicked in Voltera (he is a mind reader for crying out loud that was pathetic)
    - Eclipse: The completely butchered scene of Edward confronting Jacob after she broke her hand on his face for kissing her.
    - Eclipse: Again Edward getting his ass kicked by Victoria and Riley. The book version was action-packed enough, the chance was completely unnecessary.
    - Eclipse: The weird noise and look when the newborns were killed, it looks more like ice thought that looked horrible.
    Breaking Dawn: I HATE the Edward flashback with a passion, it feels forced, awkward, unnecessary and about 4 movies to late.
    Breaking Dawn: I really miss them telling Charlie their getting married.
    Breaking Dawn: The incorrect nightmare; why not follow the book?
    Breaking Dawn: The extra 2 wolves (Colin & Brady?) introduction should have been mentioned.
    Breaking Dawn: All the Cullens getting their asses kicked by the wolves was a bit over the top. The knowledge of fighting styles goes both way’s and the Cullens should have been able to adjust to even the odds.
    The fight should have been hard but not like this.

    While I liked the idea of getting more fighting scenes; I was disappointed by how they did it.
    I feel like the Cullens ability’s and experience were mostly ignored which is sad.
    Especially Edwards and Alice’s fighting scenes could have been more, well more; you know?

  20. I wished we also could have seen Bella cooking for Charlie, it showed that she cared for and loved him. When my husband finally watched the movie with me, he thought she was disrespectful to her dad.

  21. Isabelle says:

    My sister said she would revamp all of twilight and the pack scenes in breaking dawn.

  22. “Hollywood” hated the books because they are pro-life, family oriented and about love. Hollywood includes Melisa Rosenberg–that is why she felt the need to change up the storyline, and also why the films got such bad reviews.

  23. I actually completely disagree about the meadow scene in Twilight. I thought Catherine Hardwick, Rob and Kristen nailed it. No, it wasn’t exactly like it was in the book, but those two had incredible chemistry, incredible tension, and the “lion fell in love with the lamb” line made my heart melt. Just like it did in the book.

    The scene that I would reshoot is in Eclipse when Edward says “Bella Cullen” or something and she goes “don’t I even get to keep my own name?” SHUT UP. Bella would NEVER say that. I was also angry that they left out the “extra” where Edward says how he understands why Bella kissed Jacob. That was totally essential. Another scene that was completely left out was the bedroom scene at the end of New Moon. VERY KEY, and not even in the movie in any way, shape, or form.

Another scene that they completely screwed up was bedroom scene at the end of New Moon. VERY KEY, and lasted like 2 seconds. This would have been SLIGHTLY forgivable if they had the plane scene, but they didn’t have that either.

  25. Hands down all I want is more Cullens!

  26. Firstly, I would hire a new screen writer!! MR is awful!! Also, get rid of Cathrine Harwick….that women drives me bonkers…in every interview I have ever seen. And I really don’t get the whole Bella is a vegatarian stuff in Twilight. As for re-shoots. Twilight…Definately the meadow scene, the tree jumping scene. Oh, and the restraunt scene where Edward reveals he can read minds..”money, sex, sex, money…cat” UGH! New Moon….the breakup scene wasn’t nearly emotional enough, and the scene in Volterra, when Bella meets the Volturi. They made her very assertive/aggresive..and in the books she was truly terrified!! Eclipse…I am not sure where to begin (new director, maybe) More Edward and Bella couple time, more ‘conflict” with-in Bella, I would add the Alice kidnaps Bella part, and FCS…that meadow scene at the end..ugh, it’s awful!!! BD1…I miss the relationship with Edward and Seth. I felt it was pivitol in the wolves protect the Cullens part. More of Leah, Jacob and Seth as actual wolves patrolling the Cullen land, and More of the calamity in the house (Rosalie/Jake…Alice’s headache and relying on Jake to cancel it out…Esme’s whole part (she was the only one to actually carry a child). I expected more of all that since they split it into 2 movies. BD2 has me a little worried, but I was very impressed with the job Bill Condon did…so there is hope.

    All that said…I still watch them over and over :O)

  27. in the first movie, i’m fully willing to blame the crap-tastic-ness on Catherine hardwicke. a lot of the key stuff (i.e.: bloody typing) is in the bio class, but she believed that any given location should only be shown twice – huge mistake. also, she should’ve included the bit in carlisle’s home office – his back story, and the volturi’s intro – much better use of time than the ‘spider-monkey’/tree-jumping nonsense. the makeup sucked in that one too – bright white faces, with obviously pink/otherwise non-matching skin tone on necks and ears. they should’ve also thrown in alice’s back story – james leads them to it in the end, but the movie skips it.

    in other movies – i missed the ‘telling charlie’ scene, and the showing of renee and esme getting along in the planning stages of the wedding. i also missed rosalie’s apology for the mixup that led to ITALY in the end of new moon. there’s more, but i can’t quite think of what at the moment.

  28. tockica says:

    Eclipse – when Bella has the talk with Jacob at his home, after the big battle and their kiss and she tells him she chose Edward. In the book after the talk she breaks down completely. I missed that so much in Eclipse. It went from her breaking Jacob’s heart to her and Edward in the meadow all lovey dovey. In the book I suffered with her and I loved that Edward was there for her during the whole night..
