The Book vs. Movie Discussion Recap Pt.3


Let me thank you again for all your wonderful and epic comments on this subject! It was a great discussion this week although it was tough because of Halloween, I truly appreciate that you all took your time to comment here. Big Big hug for all of you !!! And I need to apologize that I’m so super late this time with the recap, I had some busy and rough days.

Smuttier Than You, SBGDT, Honolulu Girl, i wear Alice Cullen pjs, itsjustme, bierbeck,Call of Duty Widow, FireCrotch, First Blush, Annie, uhyesplease

Love you all, but now please read what all the people had to say about the third part of the movie:

Everyone's staring...no not that guy...oh he just looked... or Robward looks different in every single scene!

The arrival at the school the first time together was really a funny and nice scene,

Although again he looked completely different here.

But I agree with Annie here who said:


Annie And also I thought it was a bit silly that Robward was wearing glasses in the scene where they arrive at school together for the first time, but I think Hardwicke was trying to go for the whole Robward-as-James-Dean look.


Definitely the James Dean look here! But yeah the sunglasses were not necessary but just looked cool! soon


Smuttier Than You I'm thinking they must have had multiple make-up artists because if you look, its almost like completely different techniques throughout the entire movie.

The book explains his going to hell statement in that he feels like he has no soul and thereby has no chance at an afterlife let alone heaven. Whereas the movie, not so much.

itsjustme: Well, you started out with Edwards sexy ass strutting around in the parking lot smirking and went straight to wetrob so I'm pretty sure this is the best thing I ever read already. Holy crikey.

bierbeck Yes Edward does look very different in almost every scene of the movie. Rob even comments on this in the narrative version of the movie. He is gorgeous in every scene so it does not really matter, but it is weird!

Fire Crotch One of my favorite parts of the movie is when Edward and Bella walk into school. "Everyone's staring...no not that guy...oh he just looked...heh." I loved it! Plus Edward had on his sunglasses. Sexy!.


But I guess we all agreed that he just looks smoking hot!!!


uhyesplease OK - I think the going to hell line is hilarious - but I really like the line where B goes, "Everyone is staring at us." E says, "Uh, that guys isn't. Oh wait, he just did." Kills me. And yes - he looks hot and is FINALLY smiling!


Right, I missed his smile in the movie he acted all tortured most of the time but here we really see that he also has a lighter modd and a adorable smile!!

Billy drives? and Robward has a British accent?

I have to say I never noticed the change of his accent but since I’m German I don’t count here! I’ll try to get that when I watch it the next time.


Smuttier Than You

Ahhh, lighthearted Edward! But I'm curious if they may have overplayed that part just to show the change in his mood when Billy and Jake were about to pull up.

Billy driving *shakes head* and not only that but he as driving a truck. In the book, it's a car. And I'm sorry, I'm not battering fish with something in a paper bag. Don't they know about ZipLock?

Honolulu Girl from Trueblood Twilight I do like this and think Edward is adorable in this part. For the life of me I could never understand what he says in the end (is it just me or is his American accent sometimes bad?) but he says Complications? Duhh.. And then yes, the infamous Billy driving and giving wolf evil eyes. Exactly. How??

itsjustme: I never noticed that Billy was driving before. Silly me always gets dazzled by Edward.

bierbeck The Billy driving thing is wrong. In the book they explain the reason they are selling Charlie the truck for Bella is that Billy is now in a wheelchair and can no longer drive.

Fire Crotch Oh, and another favorite part...when Edward jumps off her truck, pulls out the dent, and then forgets he's supposed to be an American vampire and slips into his British accent. So yummy! And yeah, Billy driving? That whole scene was just all sorts of messed up and forced.

Annie I looooved when Edward jumped onto her truck and then fixed the dent (although I didn't catch that second part until after a couple viewings of the film -- I was too fixated on Robward to notice precisely what he was doing, lol). I do like that Edward shows his lighter side here as it helps Bella (and we as audience members [and Bella wanna-bes]) see the more "human" side of Edward.

While I didn't catch the Edward fixing the dent thing the first time I saw the film, I did note two things of importance:

1. Robward's British accent slips into his pseudo-American accent when he tells Bella the line about her being not being worried to be invited into a house full of vampires. Watch that scene to hear what I'm talking about! It's adorable! :D

2. Billy is totally driving the car when he should totally not be driving the car. Oops! But who cares, really, when you have Robward in the same scene? ;)

"What did you expect, dungeons, coffins and moats?.. "Not the moats."

Although the house was totally different from how it was described in the book, nobody really cares. Honestly I would love living in that house!!! The Cullen cooking scene really rocked and specially Emmet was great in this scene. I’m glad I was not the only one how found this thud from Alice disturbing. But we all seem to adore Alice… sigh Oh Alice, I would love having you as my friend!


Smuttier Than You While the house was beautiful and the inside what I imagined in the book, the outside was all wrong.

I LOVE Emmett in this scene! Gah! So effin cute!

*side note* really digging Fanny's eye rolling Edward!

Honolulu Girl from Trueblood Twilight As for The Cullen House: I thought the movie house was great, had no issues with it. The Cullens cooking, cute. I actually didn't notice Emmett wielding his knife around till I watched the DVD commentary with Catherine and she pointed it out. I will keep my mouth shut about Rosalie and the jeans again but Alice *sigh* that's when we meet her. I just adore Alice. I didn't notice a thud but now I will look for it.

i wear alice cullen pjs i would love to live in the Cullen's house even though they digitally added the third floor. i thought this was one of the best/funniest scenes in the movie the lines "get a whiff of that", alice drops in and says

* heart flutters* "oh she does smell good" " its ok jasper you wont hurt her" and also the graduation caps cracked me up.

It was really lovely how she looked at Jasper when she said that, sweet sweet Alice!


Fire Crotch "Not the moats." Heh...another good line. I was suprised about the house because it was not at all what I pictured from the book. However, I do think it was pretty cool. And I especially liked the graduation caps...for matriculation...sounds so dirty! And the line where Esme tells Rose to, "clean this up, NOW!" was awesome!


Esme really showed that she’s the mother here trying to educated their people!


bierbeck I love the scene where he shows Bella his room. I love how Edward seems nervous and shy. Have you seen the version where Bella talks about making rainsticks? I am glad they cut that out.

Call of Duty Widow Everytime I see the cooking dinner scene I get hungry. I wish someone would make me italiano like that!

And again, Rosalie's ass isn't huge, it was just the stupid wash on the jeans. Not a good wardrobe choice for anyone. The makeup thing was very variable. I think the one thing I noticed most was how red Rob's ears were in some scenes. Mucho embarassment I guess makes the ear's turn red! …… The whole bring Bella to Edward's house to meet the family scene was good. Edward acted exactly like a regular 17 year old would. He was totes embarassed by his family!


Actually you are right, this exactly how every 17 year old would feel when introducing the new girlfriend to the family. But his family is just super sweet.


Annie Another great scene. Loved the shot of Rose, Emmett, Carlisle, and Esme cooking for Bella like the good little domesticated vampires they are. The part where Emmett brandishes the knife at Bella when she first enters the room always makes me giggle. Kellan is just so Emmett. I thought Carlisle and Esme were great, and so was Rosalie. Was she extra bitchy? Yeah, but that's how I see the character, so it works.

It also bothered me that Alice makes a very audible sound when she lands on the floor. I was like, um, I thought vampires are supposed to be stealthy? Like ninjas, you know? But that was brushed aside by the more immediate concern of Jasper looking constipated. What was up with his expression in that scene?!

And Edward's eye-rolling was priceless. (As is Betti's gif!!!) They should have had more eye-rolling in the movie as it's one of Stephenie Meyer's favorite ever things in the books. No lie, it happens at least five times every chapter.


I agree, Rose was bitchy but this is her character, she has to play her that way, although did you see her tiny smile when Bella said: “If I would become the meal?”

"You really shouldn't have said that"

Edward just looked so adorable and shy when he showed Bella her the room.


Smuttier Than You

Interesting little fact, Melissa Rosenberg was part of the writers strike so Catherine Hartwicke is the one who came up with the spider monkey line. I missed the whole growling and springing on her part soooo much! Huge disappointment for it to not be included.

I'm thinking Edward would definitely take Bella up in the treetops. He knows even if her clumsy ass slips, he will catch her. The real question is, would book Bella let him? Remember how scared she was the first time they ran in the woods? She kept her face buried in his back out of fear of hitting a tree.


You are right, she should have been super scared and not looking so peaceful and as if she has fun. The real Bella would have fainted :)


Honolulu Girl from Trueblood Twilight Edward and Bella in his room. Remember when he spins her around to dance, her hand does some weird thing and her boney fingers curl up. ARGH! That part always creeps me out. Spider Monkey. NO comment. Just a stupid line. That's all.

i wear alice cullen pjs i'm glad i wasn't the only one that noticed Edward soaking wet and Bella extremely dry what is she water repellent. no way in hell can you be that dry sitting under a tree while its raining. i can just imagine some smug asshole (jealous cause he cant be edward) standing right over rob with a fire hose. lol

Then it goes from best lines to the lamest line in the movie. "better hold on tight spinder monkey"

*rolls eyes* speaking of rolling eyes fanny's drawing is hilarious *winks at fanny*

itsjustme: I agree that Edward would have never said spider monkey, but I love it just the same. I loved the house and the scene with the family. The eye roll is priceless. My fave part is when he's all nervous and says, "Umm..yeah..this is my room" and he looks so beautiful! *swoon* The jump out the window sucked. I'm sure it was Catherine's fault and not Rob's.

bierbeck I love the scene where he shows Bella his room. I love how Edward seems nervous and shy. Have you seen the version where Bella talks about making rainsticks? I am glad they cut that out.


This scene was super stupid, I never got that one and the truly did the best and just cut I out!!


Fire Crotch Okay, when I first saw the scene in the room and Edward dashed off out the window with Bella I thought he was going to crash through the windows. I didn't realize that the doors were open. Kind of weird, but at least now I don't freak out every time I watch the movie. The dancing thing was awkward...pretty much everything about this scene was awkward, so it was good that we could laugh about the spider monkey thing and the crazy bad special effects.

Flying squirrelward...epic genius Fanny!

Annie I love this scene so fricking much. His room was amazement -- I really feel it captured the essence from the book. The part where Edward takes Bella flying (really, we can't call it anything else) from tree-top to tree-top wasn't exactly what I expected from the film, seeing as we don't have anything like that in the book, but I do like the part where the two of them are up in the highest tree looking at each other instead of the awesomely awesome natural beauty around them (though I can't blame Bella for being distracted, lol).

But my absolute favorite part of this scene was the part where Edward tells Bella, "You really shouldn't have said that" prior to taking her flying. Why? Because we have our first (if I'm not mistaken) instance of the famous "crooked smile" in the film. ::swoon::

uhyesplease Fanny - I loved that part too - "if I were drinking your blood, for instance.." LOVE IT! And the cute look on his face too (YES on the teeth!)

The Kiss!

The super turn on hot kissing scene, I always love to see it and I can watch it over and over again. I think it really worked better than if this kiss would have outside.


Smuttier Than You

*sigh* I loved this, even though it wasn't in alignment with the book. THIS part of the movie, they did right.

itsjustme: The kiss. Wow! The only way this could have been better is if he had been kissing me. The twitch in his jaw after the first peck gets me everytime. So damn sexy! But I gotta complain for just one sec. When he pulls away from her and 'flies" to the wall. He says, "your stronger than I thought" she responds by saying, "I wish I could say the same for you" Bella would not have said that and it's a bitchy thing to say to my Edward and I don't like it one bit.

bierbeck Kissing scence- swoon! I love all the kissing in the book but it does not compare to seeing Rob doing it. It is so steamy. I have been known to rewind and rewatch that part of the movie over and over:)

Fire Crotch I can't talk about the kissing scene...it was incredibly awkward watching it with my mom and my 12 year old niece because you knew we were all putting ourselves in Bella's place. And the panties...too bad they weren't Pattinson Panties. But really, I was a little shocked because Edward is supposed to be so prim and proper...can't believe he was okay with having her around in just a t-shirt and panties...I thought she wore sweatpants in the book.

Annie And speaking of swooning, oh em gee, the kissing scene. It was just perfect. They both really captured the awkwardness mingled with the excitement of the first kiss between Bella and Edward. I wasn't too fond of the spesh effects of Edward flying backwards (Hardwicke really likes seeing Robby fly, I guess), but as it leads into my second favorite thing in this scene -- the post-coital snuggling where Edward lays in bed watching as Bella sleeps. Awww....

uhyesplease Oh the kiss....I giggled like a schoolgirl. In the theater, I had jr high-esc flashbacks. Like I briefly wondered what it would be like to kiss someone like that - like i was some kind of virgin or something. WTH was wrong with me! Seriously - I turned 13 or something watching the kiss!

i wear alice cullen pjs So the make out scene was hot, but it creeped me out a little. Edward (jumps through window) "do you do that a'lot?" "just the past couple of months" admits to watching her sleep????? STALKER who the hell does that? and whats he doing while watching her sleep? i recently read a lemon where Edward caught Bella in a compromising position fantasizing about Edward i think it probably should have been the other way around... Edward the peeping tom...

Hmmm, I know you have a point here. I mean yes “..the last couple of month” it really sounds like a Stalker. But well that is Edward and although it is totally embarrassing I find it rather sweet because it shows how fascinated he is with Bella, how deeply in love he is with her. Rofl, Edward the peeping tom..


Charlie – The Pepper Spray Rambo

Well, we all love Charlie but in this scene he was priceless!! Fannys drawing would actually look super cool on a T-shirt. We should upload it on Cafe Press hehe.. We should make a giveaway...just thinking..


Smuttier Than You I really love Charlie, 70s porn moustache and all

itsjustme: Charlie's "bring him in" line is one of the best in the movie IMO. Such a good dad.

bierbeck Billy Burke is awesome in all scenes- nuff said.

Fire Crotch I need to have the Charlie Pepper Spray Rambo pic blown up into a 8.5x11 so I can frame it...hilarious! I almost peed my pants Where the hell did I put those adult diapers?

Annie Yay for Charlie!!! Billy Burke is amazing. The to the End.

uhyesplease : Fanny - Billyburke aka rambo! classic!

Muse, Jasper and Edward *flipping the bird* rocks!

When I think about the Baseball scene I hear muse in my head and I see Jasper! Actually, I hear the song every day from home to work in my car and I have it as a ringtone for my BFF. But again, the dresses for the girls were just a super bad choice. I don’t get it really!


Smuttier Than You -Supermassive Black Hole AKA Supermassive Whack A Mole

Jasper spinning the bat, the man has magic hands, I'm just sayin...

I wish Rosalie and Esme had put a lil more bend in the bill of their hats. This is Mr. NSS's favorite scene because of Rosalie's ass in baseball pants. GAWD, Jasper after he swings the bat, sweet baby Jesus, his mouth *fans self*

Honolulu Girl from Trueblood TwilightThe Baseball scene. MY FAVORITE SCENE. I love Muse. I can't say that enough. I love Muse and paired up with The Cullens playing Baseball in slow motion. Awesome!! "My monkey man" Love it!


I love it too when she says that, super proud of her lovely Emmet…


i wear alice cullen pjs finally the baseball scene. it must have been cold cause the make up couldn't cover Alice's red nose.

or the fact Esme is wearing mittens??? i love rose in this scene she actually smiles while playing around with Emmett, then turns fierce when Bella calls her out HOT STUFF!!!!! i agree with Mr. NSS's. Rose in baseball pants :).. i'm not sure why a'lot of you criticized her for having a fat ass???(most men i know including myself like a little junk in the trunk.) in my opinion Nikki reed is very pretty i like her as a brunette better though.


Rose’s ass, a topic for itself. I think we are not complaining about the size of her ass but more abut the wardrobe. I mean, Rose is undeniable nicely in shap but they just choose always the wrong pants for her! She is gorgeous and I think she also has a great ass, one just doesn’t see this.


itsjustme: Jasper does steal the baseball scene, swinging that bat around. I love Edward flipping off Emmett-shows real brotherhood. And the Muse song is perfect!

bierbeck The first time I saw the movie I thought the baseball scene was really hokey. The second time I watched it i even skipped over it! But now after seeing it several more times I can appreciate it for just being fun.

Fire Crotch The baseball scene...the girls hair all looked so bad. The hats didn't help. The music was awesome. I need more Jasper bat tricks. The growling was epic fail, but I think this has been covered multiple times. The monkey man thing...I think you need to keep monkey quotes to 1 per movie unless the movie is about monkeys.


Actually I think the hats were the biggest problem, either you wear a Baseball hat or not, but the way the girls wear them was just wrong. I guess this was probably to be still able to see their faces, god knows..


Annie Another awesomely awesome scene! I loved it, of course, and as testament of how truly cool this scene is, my own ever-loving boyf who hates Twilight (true story), loved this scene. It is just that cool.

And Jasper is amazing when he says, "Oh, I think we can handle that" to the nomad vamps. His southern accent is on full display and I love the little glimmer in his eye as he says that. Sorry if I'm getting a little ahead of myself and the discussion here, but I just had to bring that up!

uhyesplease MrsV - oh yeah - Jasper totally took that AND Edward flipping of Emmett is hilarious.

Exhibit:

Call of Duty Widow Since this movie obviously focuses on Edward and Bella getting together, I'm really looking forward to New Moon, then Eclipse. I'm not sure how much of the Cullen's and their personalities will be shown in New Moon except for Alice's. I have high hopes!


I have the highest hopes too, but I’m pretty sure they do it better. I can’t wait to se New Moon. But hey!!! It is November!!! Which means, 16 days for you and 18 days for Betti and me!! jumps up and down* !!!

And go and show Artsie some Love, she’s doing a great recap on her Lullaby post, if you haven't seen it yet, go the music she choose was wonderful!

SBGDGT said...

I got lost on my way back over here. I'm sorry :(

Quickly then:

I loved the lighter side of Edward. I didn't even notice the accent. (I really need to watch it again!)

"Not the moats" Yup, a great one-liner. Loved the whole family!!! And I hated "Spider Monkey"

The KISS, was so HAWT. I am all about the drawing it out and how the sexual tension is so heightened... *fanning myself* Yea, well done!!! Then he stays! Awww :)

Charlie w/ his shotgun. That performance cemented BB as Charlie!

Baseball- I LOVE MUSE PERIOD! Jasper was the best part of this, though the whole thing was fun :) And I thought Rob was doing the whole finger snap thing that guys are doing now. I didn't think it was the bird!? Lol how funny...

Great recap!

Fire Crotch said...

Yes, please please please make the Charlie Rambo Pepper Spray shirt on CafePress...I will totally buy one!

Team Six Pack said...

So I've been following all these post of book v movie and I've been loving every minute of them! (Sorry I'm a bad commenter lol) but anyway, yea I agree about the Cullen house... one of my favorite scenes and I don't care that the house was nothing like the book, I loved the modern look!

Charlie is the best always! He was awesome in every scene he was in!
