Hardwicke did not stick with the book in my opinion! Nowhere in the book did they kill off Charlies life long friend. Nowhere in the movie did they show Edward walking Bella to class. Bella EARNED seeing Edward in the sun, it was not forced on her and the meadow is where they fell in love, it could have been more by the book .. if she and the cast had read the series BEFORE they started filming.....
Morgaine Chya said:They don't have to show nudity to make a hot love scene.
SM didn't grahically explain their nudity, so I thnk it could be filmed so it wasn't explicit.
The scene I'm concerned about in NM is the feeding-on-tourists scene at the Voluri's. SM didn't go into great detail but she let us know the gruesomenes going on, anyway,
Hardwicke was able to stick with the book, cut out enough soit could come in under 2 hours, and still made a great movie. We'll see if the NM director can be as effective.
I want to know what was Bella doing when Edward took apart the Head Board, PG-13 has pushed the envelope a lot with sex, I would rather have this movie rated R for us grown ups, who understand what's going on in the book.
