new moon preview question

so I will admit I don't know much about this movie--not really interested I guess. But I have seen the preview on TV and every time I am bothered when Bella tells Jake "you've killed people." Mostly because I don't think it is accurate at all, but also, if you think about it, Eddie has killed tons of people and she doesn't care about that.

am I alone in this?

9 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I picked up on this, too. I think this is initially when she thinks that Jake (and the other wolves) are the ones killing all of the hikers in the forest. She doesn't know it's Victoria yet.

And I think the whole Edward thing doesn't bother her b/c when he fed on people, he hunted down the scum of the earth (I don't necessarily agree with her, but I just got that from the book!). That still doesn't answer why she's OK with Jasper, though...

She doesn't really find out about Jasper until Eclipse though, right?

Ginger said...

Um Alison.. what do you mean you don't know much about this movie??!! haha You better get pumped up b/c in 2 weeks I will be there! and we are going to see it!!!

Back to your question though.. there's a lot from the previews that I am confused about. Like why is Jacob in wolf form in the forest with Bella and Edward? and he charges at Edward while Bella is screaming No! Maybe I am forgetting something.. but Bella doesn't find out Jacob is a wolf until AFTER Edward is gone.. and I don't remember this happening at the end :\

I didn't exactly answer your question either.. I just threw another one out there lol.

Any time I see a commercial that doesn't really make sense (and is especially dramatic like this one) I just figure it is a way to make people (who have not read the book) think the movie will be filled with drama and stuff like that.

And of course movies are always different than the book for some unknown reason. Why can't they just keep it the same?!

Ya, you're right. It doesn't make much sense.

And Ginger, I'm pretty sure that what you're talking about was one of her dreams. I haven't seen the ads yet, but from what you're saying it sounds like the dream Bella has a few times.

Because it's Edward. And Edward can do no wrong, right? Whereas Jacob, by trying to take Edward's place, is a scourge on all existence.

What the ******* is wrong with Bella??? Seriously???

*Not actually cussing. Just random asterisks to convey my irriatation. Edward is a homicidal stalker, and I'd dearly love to slap some sense into his stalkee.

Oh Peacy, if BELLA went for Jacob, that would leave no one for you! ;)


As for the Question, I agree with Erin and Maggie, I think they are splicing what will make for a DRAMATIC preview and also I think it's before she realizes WHO is killing in the woods. If I remember correctly she not really OK with what Edward did, but what can she do? Besides it was in the past, and he ISN'T doing it anymore. Don't we ALL accept faults in the one we choose to love?

I don't know, I'm finishing up the Book I'm on and then I'll be re-reading NM in prep for the movie

Peacey said...

Yeah, yeah, you're right Heather... Pfft, no you're not. Like I'd let that stop me.

It's discussed in New Moon briefly.
