  45. At this level the one actual cause Edward is so interested in Bella is as a result of he loves her odor a lot. He actually simply desires to drink her blood. I really feel like there ought to have been some extra improvement right here about them falling in love for like, regular causes?

  59. Edward watching Bella sleep when she willingly invitations him to take action is 100 p.c cuter than when he was creeping in. Glad we’re previous that section.

  70. Uh-oh, Bella obtained bamboozled.
  71. Pepper spray on a vampire. Good transfer, Bella.
  72. The entire film, Edward is all the time like, “Vampires are INDESTRUCTIBLE. INVINCIBLE. NOTHING CAN KILL US.” After which they kill James in like, .0005 seconds.

Characters? Visionary. It has its cringey moments, nevertheless it’s such a enjoyable and entertaining journey down reminiscence lane. What extra are you able to ask from a movie?
