"Those words much more subtle love that develops lowly and has everything to do with the personality of the person much better suits with Edward not Jacob."
-- Actually no it doesn't. Meyers has made it extremely clear that Bella and Edward had an instant attraction to each other. Yes Edward initially ran away and tried to avoid her, but the connection between them was still instantly there. Same for Bella in her declaration that she was irrevocably in love with Edward, she knew almost nothing about him as a "person". YES I do agree that Edward and Bella spend time together and develop a real love sharing their hopes and dreams, etc. But there love was not developed slowly it was dramatic and life altering for Edward and Bella both.
It is very possible to be in love with two people at the same time and examples of that can be found over and over again in real life and in books or movies.
Maybe, but in that case no one would call them 'stars crossed lovers'...
First off I have never heard them called that. Secondly, why couldn't they be called that?
Whole Twilight is about that.
From very first pages you get that Bella and Edward will be together. I know Jacobs fans think otherwise but there really are no another scripts.
I am fine that Bella and Edward remained together and I do agree that there was never any doubt that they would be together.
One more thing. Twilight is romance. If Meyer wanted to create a psyhological novel about girl who was capable to be in love with two at once, she should write in such way from very beginning. She should describe girl's feelings, embarrassment... she should give hints! But no, Twilight is pure romance ABOUT STAR CROSSED LOVERS. The same (and more!) is New Moon. Even Eclipse where finally Bella realises her "love" toward Jacob does not give any doubts about Bellas fate and decision.
New moon movie indeed developed relationship between Bella and Jacob but it was the greatest moviemakers mistake. Audience did not forgive them such twist.
"New moon movie indeed developed relationship between Bella and Jacob but it was the greatest moviemakers mistake."
Sometimes I think that you forget how active Meyers is in the production of these movies. IF she was not satisfied with the development and portrayal of her characters I believe that we would know that.
We know that Meyer was not happy with Eclipse movie. It seems that was the reason why she became producer of Breaking dawn - and BD movies indeed were about Bellas&Edwards relationship again while both New Moon and Eclipse movies were shot with Jacob as a central character and told us about Bellas relationship with Jacob more than about Edward.
Twilight Movie critics
Twilight received mixed reviews from critics. Based on 204 reviews collected by Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an overall "Rotten" rating of 49%, with a weighted average score of 5.5/10. In describing the critical consensus, it stated: "Having lost much of its bite transitioning to the big screen, Twilight will please its devoted fans, but do little for the uninitiated." On Metacritic, which assigns a weighted mean rating out of 100 reviews from film critics, it has an average score of 56 from the 37 reviews. New York Presscritic Armond White called the film "a genuine pop classic", and praised Hardwicke for turning "Meyer's book series into a Brontë-esque vision." Roger Ebert gave the film two-and-a-half stars out of four and wrote, "I saw it at a sneak preview. Last time I saw a movie in that same theater, the audience welcomed it as an opportunity to catch up on gossip, texting, and laughing at private jokes. This time the audience was rapt with attention". In his review for the Los Angeles Times, Kenneth Turan wrote, "Twilight is unabashedly a romance. All the story's inherent silliness aside, it is intent on conveying the magic of meeting that one special person you've been waiting for. Maybe it is possible to be 13 and female for a few hours after all". USA Today gave the film two out of four stars and Claudia Puig wrote, "Meyer is said to have been involved in the production of Twilight, but her novel was substantially more absorbing than the unintentionally funny and quickly forgettable film". Entertainment Weekly gave the film a "B" rating and Owen Gleiberman praised Hardwicke's direction: "She has reconjured Meyer's novel as a cloudburst mood piece filled with stormy skies, rippling hormones, and understated visual effects".
