    Dailymail Article

    Getting a little more gropey with that upshirt action, Edward. Stay classy!

    Ahh scary! His chest is horrible... He was half naked in the book though... Ew. *proceeds to poke out mind's eye*

    Oh, oh dear. I saw a huge poster for New Moon at the theatre yesterday, and since it had Taylor Lautner on it with his own hair (thank God), I had at least a little hope for the film. But now... all gone...

    Anyway, that article took on a little too juicy a tone for me. Ashley Greene in a bikini? wat?

    Actually I got the link from Elanor. :P Reddit has informed me that the Daily Mail is a horrid source for facts. It is rather more a tabloid than a newspaper, eh? I like the Guardian and the Independent okay though.

    I heard rumors that the wolf pack is hot, though. And there will be less Edward (hopefully). Even more of an excuse to Kristen Stewart to sit around looking listless, though…

    Kristen Stewart is gearing up to be my least favorite actress ever. Huzzah.

    That pretty much sums it up. It is such a sensationalist newspaper, I hates it.

    That scene was pretty terrible in the books too, so it’s no wonder it’ll be bad in the film as well. Just like the Meadow Scene in Twilight.

    Well, the special effects couldn’t be worse than they were in Twilight…

    I'd watch it just to have an actual moving-picture visual of Bella throwing herself off a cliff. ^__^

    I forgot that she throws herself off a cliff in New Moon! I wonder how many hate glares I'll get if I cheer during that part...

    I should bring all the girls in my choir class who hate Twilight to see it and we'll all sing 'Halleluiah' in a very operatic loud way right when she plunges. And hit crazy high notes to drive everyone even MORE crazy.

    Sounds like a plan.

    Video it and put it on youtube.

    No, seriously, you should do it.

    Is it the actress or the part? I’m not sure there was much for her to work with in the first place.

    Echo what steph and Ari said. We’ll all chip in for your bail too. Heck I’m sure you’d get half a dozen marriage proposals from this site alone.

    I'd definitely be behind a hallelujah chorus. ^__^

    Can’t wait to see her plunge. ^^ If only that was the end of the series. Spectacular and satisfying.

    What really happens in New Moon?
    There must be more to it than just "Edward runs away, Bella turns suicidal, Bella loves Jacob, Edward comes back."
    And what should I look out for apart from the cliff-diving?

    I read the Wall Street Journal.

    @Moldorm: well, there was a long and drawn-out section in the beginning where Edward breaks up with Bella and leaves. And then he’s out of the picture for over half the book. It’s awesome. The rest of it is mostly Jacob and Bella becoming friends, which only really starts to get weird right before he turns into a werewolf. Then there’s all that ordeal, werewolves and things. Then Bella jumps off a cliff because she’s hearing voices in her heeead. And Jacob saves her, of course. And then Bella goes to save Edward, who’s committing suicide in Italy, a most romantic location. There are a couple of kickass vampires there, and several not so much. That’s all I can remember. I chopped most of the bits with Edward out of my mind. With an axe.

    Oooo! I heard there was a Vampire Pope! Can anyone confirm this?

    @Spanman: Thanks for your recap! Now the movie will probably make sense, maybe!

    Speaking of Vampire Popes, do any of the books mention vampire/werewolf religion or similar spiritual stuff? You'd expect them to have different beliefs to humans, if any at all, and, Meyer being a Mormom, would be more likely to include things like that.
  11.  

    I thought they were ‘Native American’-esq, and are just regular hoomans until the sparkle gang shows up. To be fair, I’m getting my knowledge 3rd hand from the girls I work with.

    Nrr, there’s very little talk about religion in any of the Twilight books. If any. Except Carlisle apparently believes even vampires have souls, though I don’t remember him ever expanding on everything that is associated with the word “soul”.

  12.  
    Yeah, all I can recall is that the werewolves sound kind of animist, but it's not really looked at in any detail.

    You forgot the most important part of New Moon! Not only does Bella jump off a cliff, but she does so (and crashes on a motorcycle earlier in the book) solely because she thinks she hears Edward’s voice. That’s right, she commits near-suicide purely because she’s hearing voices!!

    I said she was hearing voices, but I figured it might be too much o a turn-off/giveaway to say she was hearing Edward’s voice. >>

    Not that turn-offs aren’t great when it comes to Twilight.

  13.  

    To be fair, If I heard Edward’s voice, I would also topple off of a cliff. :P

    Yeah well, she jumped off it because whenever she put herself in harm's way, she heard Edward's voice bitching at her about how stupid she was to try to hurt herself. So she jumped off the cliff in order to hear him passionately tell her not to (with his glorious voice, of course). Before she died. Or she would have, if Jacob wasn't such a lovesick kid. Sigh.
  14.  

    Funny, because I hear my dad’s voice yelling at me every time I do something stupid myself.

    Bella clearly wanted to stalk Edward herself. The two deserve each other.

    See, it was all actually an elaborate conspiracy by everyone else- they hated Edward and Bella so much they got the two of them to get together and go away so they could have ordinary lives.

    Sadly no, I've only read what's available on the website. I had no money when I found it, and since then I keep being distracted by shiny new things. I hope to get around to buying it soon, though.
