OK, I went to the movie for a second time, because I wanted to compare it with the book fresh in my mind. I think they did a very good job of translating the story. Some things I liked better in the book was how much Edward and Bella touched. They were constantly touching each others arms, faces, and Bella was in Edwards lap frequently, but they did not incorporate that in the movie. Also, the meadow scene was lovely in the book, quite hokey in the movie.Originally Posted by Hygena;3242787;
I think the movie did two things better than the book. The scene where Bella says "I know what you are." I think that was much more dramatic in the movie, whereas in the book, it was in the car on the ride home from Port Angeles. I also think the movie did an A+ job of the final battle scene.
Hygena, what did you think of New Moon? I enjoyed it very much, mainly due to Jacob. Bella was a tad to much for me with her attitude. Of course, I loved the excitement at the end. I borrow Eclipse tomorrow from a friend, can't wait.
