So I saw Twilight 3 times this weekend. Thursday, Saturday, and tonight. Each night I noticed something different each time.
For example: I noticed that James says to Waylen “Nice Jacket” and after Waylen is dead, James wears the jacket for the rest of the movie.
I noticed small things: things on Bella’s walls, Edwards moment of vulnerability, and so on.
It was interesting. While I think the movie is horrible in the technical sense, like the book, I still love the story and the characters are played well. Bella could be a little more dynamic, but K Stew is K Stew and well not that great.
I love Rob though. I think he does a good Edward. Especially because he chooses to use facial expressions to convey Edward’s feelings. Edward is not very good at expressing his real feelings. It’s interesting. Edward’s character is something I would like to encounter in real life. I want to be amazed at his mere personality. There’s a line in the movie that sticks with me. Bella has just revealed the fact that she realizes he’s a vampire. He shows her all the things that make him the world’s greatest predator. Bella tells him she’s not afraid. The following conversation ensues:
Edward: I can’t read your mind. You have to tell me what you’re thinking.
Bella: Now I’m afraid.
Bella: I’m not afraid of you. I’m afraid of losing you. I, I just feel like you’re going to disappear again.
Edward: You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you.
Unreal. I can’t fathom it. And it happens. I have friends who can prove that something like this happens! Not vampire human love, but love in the purest sense. Love at first sight. Love love love.
And I wonder…How long will I have to wait? How many decades? I’m not immortal. So how long?
