The simplest way to put it – these movie adaptations continue to annoy me. I just feel like they’re so…forget-able. There’s no easy way to say it, but they’re weak. Really weak.
And I want to say, so badly, that this is the movie makers fault. But honestly, I think I’m just lying to myself. Because in the end, who was the writer of this dialogue? There was no scriptwriting from scratch…this movie is an adaptation. And I’m sorry to say, it was Stephanie Meyer who did a bad job at the dialogue.
I wish I could say otherwise, but this is the easiest way to explain: the dialogue simply isn’t strong enough to stand up on it’s own. And on a final note, I can’t help but feel that if this movie had been more heavily based on Bella’s inside thoughts…it might have been a lot more relatable.
Have you watched New Moon? What did you think compared to the book?
