I also didn't care for her dress.

Glad I wasn't the only one that hated her dress. When I saw it from the back, I thought it was pretty, but then saw the front and changed my mind!

I agree about the voice-overs but don't know how else they'd do them. The part where they were all saying Jake wasn't bad but maybe that's because they weren't all looking at each other. I thought some of the stuff was just int here for shock value and I hated her dress. It was fit for a porn star in the back and, though simple, too mature for an 18 year old in the front. Plus, it didn't match the book. The imprint scene was good but not the totally made up fight scene. I think the next one will be the best because it'll have so much action!

I just got back maybe 30 mins ago. It was what I expected. I appreciate when a movie follows the book pretty well. I giggle bc some of it cant help but be cheesy but I am overall pleased!

We just got home from seeing it and I really didn't like it. I've read the books which I really liked, I just thought a lot of the way they did this movie was sort of lame (especially the wolf voices) and that they probably could have just made it into one movie instead of two. I guess the positive of nothing really going on in this movie is that the last one should be good. Oh, a funny thing - as we were walking out this lady and her daughter said, " how do you feel about having your baby now?" LOL.

I saw it on Sunday and I liked it as well. I've had a hard time with the other movies because Kristen Steward drove me crazy with her acting, but I really liked her in this one. I did think some of the wolf voice over stuff was really cheesy as well, but overall I liked it. I hate waiting another year for the next one though!

I went last night~ really liked it. In most ways it exceeded my expectations but I had a few issues. The wolf voice over scene was a little cheesy, and they took a few liberties with the story line toward the end that Iwasn't a big fan of...but I loved the wedding/honeymoon stuff totally lived up to the hype for me. And the last bit with the pregnancy and delivery etc was done really well IMO. (also really liked how they did the Jacob imprinting thing)

all in all, loved it and I hate having to wait a year for the second half!
