Well, I didn't really get to watch it last year, since it was a really busy time for me. I was hoping to watch it in the cinemas, but unfortunately I was too late. So just recently I decided to torrent it, and it just finished. Alright.

As to continue my ritual, After every twilight movie, I always post a review. Yes, I'm still continuing it. Luckily, there isn't any fan girling to make my review biased but only respect. So yeah.

* Well first off, the first parts of the movie, were awkward. Maybe it's just KStew and Rpattz that makes the whole scene awkward which may have answered my question as to why it feels quite different from the book. Although I DO appreciated the fact that they put in "Bella's lullaby" as a soundtrack in the movie. I'm quite fond of that song actually.

* Next. and this is probably the most painful of all. Why is there no Tanya  lovin'. WHY. WHY. They didn't even show how nervous Bella was in meeting Tanya. Tanya practically had a history with Edward. SHE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE ATLEAST TWO LINES. oh and I spot Stephenie Meyer in the wedding scene. Holla!

* The soundtrack for the movie is gorgeous, yes.

* It really showed Charlie and Bella's relationship well. I have to admit it got me a little teary-eyed watching Charlie say goodbye to his daughter.

* The movie picks up great from the whole after marriage thing. Lines straight from the book too. huh. expect no less from a franchise who want the movie to be exactly like the book!

* I'll have to be honest, i'm really sorry for what i'm about to say... but the whole wolf confrontation scene, with the dubbed voices as their thoughts...while the scene was great, the whole thing felt like a disney movie to me :XD: I'm not sure, I don't know why.

* Seth is as adorable as ever. One of my favorite characters. Booboo stewart delivers.

* I must say though, they really did make Bella look horrible during pregnancy. It really did creep me out. good job make-up crew.

* I'm really glad they didn't take much emphasis on the whole jacob's-point-of-view part in the book. just some parts that are essential.

* Let me just say, that in the book, one of the grossest thing ever to be written (don't take this the wrong way) was the birth scene. Now imagine that being on-screen. double gross. oh god that was gross. gross. gross. good.

* the imprint scene. so powerful. although did the teenage Renesmee have a wig on? because that was such a terrible wig.

* Kstew did look beautiful after her transformation. not sure where the make up came from though :XD:

And there ends my review. And yes, Aro is still as britishly adorable as ever in the credits scene. I'm looking forward to part 2 and how they'll portray the next events. Mostly i'm excited about Renesmee, but eh.

My mom, my friend, and I had to sit in the second row, so that much sound and moving and growling almost gave me a heart attack lol! I don't mean to, but I laugh every time I watch that scene.

Fact: Booboo Stewart is amazing.
Nothing more can be said on the matter.

The make - up after Kstew's transformationmade me wonder too :D Yep, the birth scene was incredibly gross, the older Renesmee looked not as beautiful as i expected aaand the thing that bothered me most was that, before Edward translated Jacobs thoughts, the wolfes and the vampires had a fight! That never ever happened! :S But anyway, I think the first part was a bit boring. NOT bad, just not as exciting as I'm expecting the second part to be :)

YES. oh my gosh, you're right, the fight did not happen at all. That was so strange, in my head I thought "is this even in the book?" but then i ignored it and thought that it probably is, because they put every detail in the movies. Yeah, the second part will no doubt be more exciting than the first one.

if you photoshop the baby belly off of KStew/Bella towards the birth scene, she looks like she'd been in Auschwitz during WW2

Well i was great, I guess. I watched part 1 in two parts (PARTCEPTION!) so it wasn't that flowing for me.
I agree, it was a bit rocky in the begining.

I agree absolutely and completely with everything you just said!

Film really picked up after the honeymoon. I didn't think much of the first bits (except Charlie/Bella and Bella/her mum, oh, and Alice and Jasper dancing at the wedding!) BUT the pregnancy, Jacob's defiance of the other pack, SETH!!!, imprinting, Edward's feelings about the baby (tension really came through there, thought it, for once, displayed a realistic relationship) and little Nessie were brilliant!

I wasn't sure how they were going to show the depth of imprinting, but the whole flash-forward I thought was excellent.

And, I had fantasied in my fangirl days that they would end the film on Bella opening her eyes and them being red....and they DID!!!

But, you are right - not enough Tanya, wolf-talking-in-head scene was cheesy.

P.S. The makeup came from Alice, of course!
