10 Scenes from New Moon That Should "NOT" Be Cut!!!!

Everyone.....Please don’t misunderstand; we’re not angling to be on the 'Twilight Sucks' boards. Like you, we think that every bit of New Moon should be in the movie. We don’t want to miss one minute of the undead goodness. But if we were forced to make a choice about which 10 scenes make it - say someone was holding a stake to our heart- these are the scenes we absolutely, positively think should be included in the film.

Bella’s Bloody Birthday Party
Stephanie Myer really knows how to start a story off with a bang, or well, a crash... and pools of blood, and glass shards, and crushed presents... and lot’s of uncontrollable vampy blood lust. It’s a very unhappy birthday with a nice mix of gore and frosting that sets up Bella’s many problems to come. Plus, we get Edward’s back story from Carlisle’s point of view.

Edward Says Goodbye
This doesn’t need much explanation. It’s totally crushing and the pages of our books are now tear-stained. But, this moment might need a rewrite in the movie. Should Bella still be lost in the woods? Maybe she should run after Edward? Do you think it works as is?

Bella and Jacob’s Reunion
To those of you who aren’t Twi-hards, this might seem somewhat inconsequential in comparison to the larger action in the book. But this is the point where Bella and wolf-to-be Jacob see each other again after eight months. Eye contact is made, Bella remarks on how tall he is and the spark of friendship (and maybe more) is re-ignited.

Laurent Materializes in the Forest
This scene is important for so many reasons. We learn that the fiery vampire Victoria is planning to avenge the death of her mate and turn Bella into vamp food, but not before torturing her for a while. We also find out that Laurent has fallen off the veggie bandwagon and Bella is looking like a big slab of human bacon to him. We get the satisfaction of hearing the now-departed Edward in Bella’s head again and our theory that werewolves are real is finally confirmed.

Bella’s Cliff Diving Catastrophe
In the scheme of all the life-threatening things that Bella does in New Moon, this is the one that’s most over-the-top. She’s basically fish food when Jacob finds her and although she doesn’t realize it at the time, she is also vampire bait for the eager Victoria. Is Kirsten Stewart going to be able to pull this action scene off? How can she not? It sets up tension with Victoria and Jacob. Without it we wouldn’t have the next un-cutable moment in our line-up.

Jacob and Bella’s Near Kiss Experience
We apologize 'Team Jacob' fans. We know it must break your heart to even think about this moment. Bella and Jacob are so close to wolfing out, but in the end, Bella is a one vampire woman. Plus, it’s the major turning point in the story! It wasn’t totally Bella’s fault. How could she have known Alice would see her drown? And for that matter, how could she know that when Jacob answered the phone, it would be Edward and not Carlisle on the other end? Well, she did watch Romeo and Juliet about a thousand times. That might have given her a hint as to what was coming next.

Bella and Alice’s Race Against Time
Would the Volturi kill Edward? Would Edward kill himself? What does ‘formidable gifts’ really mean? All of these things are in question as Bella and Alice travel to Italy, steal a Porsche, charm the police and almost mow down some tourists in their race to save Edward from his doom. This is by far the most suspenseful moment in the film. And just when it can’t get any worse, Bella has to convince Edward that he isn’t dead, or rather, he’s just - undead. If this is done right, this scene of Bella running through a square filled with people dressed in capes and vampire fangs will not only have you on the edge or your seat, it might actually be...funny.

Bella Meets Jane
We welcome a good old, blood-loving Nosferatu-style vampire here at FEARnet. So we can’t help but love the Volturi because everything about them - from the ancient Caius with paper thin skin to the cape wearing guard - is so traditionally vampire-y and evil. But, the best member of the clan is unquestionably Jane. With just one look tiny Jane sparks uncontrollable fear in the hearts of vampires the world over. She smiles, she skips, she tortures. (Everyone except Bella.) But, can Dakota Fanning live up to her sadistic tendencies? We have our doubts.

The Volturi Get a Tourist-y Snack
Bella, Edward and Alice may escape the jaws of the Volturi, but some unwitting tourists aren’t so lucky. There’s no need to show the gore in this part, the sounds of their screams ought to do it.

The Cullens Decide to Turn Bella
After putting it to a vote Bella finds out that she will get both the boy and the family for eternity. And what girl doesn’t wish that someday she’ll grow up to be a vampire?

It feels so much better now that we have this off our chest. Have we done New Moon proud? We think so. Now you need to tell us, what do you think should or should not be cut out of New Moon?

Nice article!

I think I would like to see the beginning when Bella and Edward watch Romeo and Juliet and Edward whispers Romeo's lines in her ear. There is some major forshadowing there because Edward tells Bella that if anything were to happen to her that he "find a way to provoke the Volturi".

I agree with your selection. I think all of them should be in the movie! I think that the part where Edward leaves Bella it should be just the way the book depicts it. Cuz i dont know about you but that made me feel like my heart was being torn apart.

I also agree with Aimee on how they should put the Romeo and Juliet part in.

And if they dont explain the romeo and juliet scene we couldn't accuratley do the run for Italy When will they let everyone know about Jaspers power as well.
