The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

Just released more New Moon Stills!!

This picture of Jacob, he jumps of his porch, runs and phases while in the air as, Bella falls down, he leaps over her. This is played in all of the trailers! It happened in the books, on the side of the road where Jacob and Bella rode bikes together. Jake only mid air transforms because he is trying to protect Bella was Paul. However, i don't know if that is the scene or they combined two together. But it still looks pretty cool. I'm a little confused and don't really know when this scene plays out in the film. It will be different from the book, so I'm not sure. However, the clothes that Jacob is wearing, he is also wearing them in another shot, where he is asleep in his bed. In the book, the only time that Bella sees Jacob sleeping is when she discovers what he is and goes to see him bright and early. Billy warns her that he is asleep, but Bella is so mad that she doesn't care. Jacob looked so innocent and peaceful that she couldn't stay mad at him. That's the only place i can think off. Well, maybe Jacob wears the same shirt twice, because Bella walks on the beach and waits for Jacob to wake up. Then you have the whole Bella and Jacob confrontation on the beach, so i don't know where this would fit in. I don't know why Jacob is wearing the same clothing, i guess i will need to see the film to make it make sense.

This is obviously the movie scene where Mike, Jake and Bella get stuck together. Ouch, i love this scene. This is where Jacob places his moves of Bella. But man, they do look very close. Almost like Jacob is going to lean in and kiss Bella. In this shot, Jacob does look younger than Bella. I don't know why, maybe just the way he is sitting, or the clothes he is wearing. I love that wig so much, too!! Plus, the mirror adds to make the shot interesting. It makes the room look a lot bigger, but it makes the shot allot more visually dynamic, rather than a close up shot of them talking. Maybe, the mirror has some significance, because everything in a film is fabricated. From the sets, to clothes and shots. So, maybe it's symbolic of Jacob seeing Bella exactly as she is, but he still wants her anyway. Or maybe Jacob can see the reflection of the mirror, basically implying that Jacob can she the reality of the situation, whereas Bella can't and she is living in her own little world with Edward haunting her, drawing her out from reality. I don't know if that is right, but it just the way i saw it. This shot is very film nior!

I'm a little worried for this scene, its either going to be really good or really bad I'm a little scared because of the one shot of Bella cliff diving in the trailer, that was awful. It's the shot where Bella is floating underwater, when Edward is there upside down, and Jacob's arms just pulls her away. I laughed at that because it was so bad. It just didn't look real, it looked so fake that it was funny. Anyway, i really hope that when Jacob rescues her, it's like the book. We didn't get much as Bella was unconscious. But i think this scene with Jacob and Bella on the beach is going to be pretty short, and the cliff diving is going to be longer.

Again, the Mike, Jacob and Bella date. Except i kind of imagined in my head Mike of Bella's left and Jake on Bella's right. However, for film it makes sense. Bella is literally caught in the middle of these two guys, both equally. Just for visual composition and dominance, Mike is on the left hand side of the screen, which has more dominance over the right. However, Jacob is dressed in black, which has more dominance over the green that Mike is wearing, so it conveys this sort of battle for dominance. Which is perfect as it ties in with the plot, both of these guys are trying to get Bella. I love that Mike is in green, because you know when someone is sick, you say "you look green." Which is funny, because it could be foreshadowing Mike getting sick. I also love that Bella looks seriously uncomfortable, and wants nothing more than to get away and go home. Plus, I'm pleased that Chris Weitz added Mike and Jacob having their hands turned up, just like it was in the books. Awesome.

I know that this is the scene where Jacob talks with Bella on the beach. I'm almost positive that it's the scene after Bella has discovered what Jacob is, and meets him on the beach to try and talk him out of killing innocent people in the woods. I'm really excited to see this scene because it's the point in the film where all of their cards are laid out on the table. Jacob and Bella are best friends, they this shows when even Jacob's transformation cant keep them apart. Although it isn't romantic, like Jacob wishes their friendship is strong, despite that. Plus, i love that Bella is wearing in the scene, i would totally wear it!! And, that colour looks really good on Taylor!!
