okay…so im a big fan of the twilight saga…obsessed really 😛 i’ve seent the movie twilight like 5 or 6 times purely because it was twilight, not because it was good. I counted 30+ things that were wrong or missing in the movie, and so many things were just done differently! I was so dissapointed. Then I heard there’s going to be a new director, and I thought, that this might make the New Moon movie better. But now I’m not convinced. I don’t think dakota fanning should play Jane for one, and I heard rumours about Vanessa Hudgens being involved with the movie? Please please don’t do that….it will ruin the movie….I have nothing against these two actors, both very talented, but I dont think they would be best for the twilight series. Also, dont cut out stuff in this movie! leave things the way they were explained in the book. I also don’t know if showing edward and like where he is and what he’s doing while he’s away from Bella is the best idea for the movie. I think the best thing to do, is to try to be as accurate to the book as possible. I would hate to see the second movie be a disspointment too. Of course these are all personal thoughts, but I am a fan, and I have friends that share the same thoughts as I do. I’m positive that there’s A LOT of twilight fans out there that feel the same way I do, especially with the whole point of keeping it like the book. I hope you take my thoughts into consideration.
Thanks you for reading
