Remember the days when people were OBSESSED with these two (on and off screen)? I remember checking the Lion_Lamb community for updates pretty much every day. A pic of Rob and Kristen looking dazzling at the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Premiere ~

Still wondering how they could remake this series and make people happier?

Whenever people bring up the cast, you still get haters saying "the problem was also Stephenie Meyer's writing" So... What's the solution? Because the story itself can't change.

My take ~ if people like Bella/Edward they'll like it no matter what. Same with Bella/Jacob or any other couple in the series.

If you don't like any of the relationships, if you don't like that vampires sparkle in the sunlight... Just let the people who DO like it discuss it.

There are many other vampire movies that all follow the same set of rules. I admire that Stephenie tried to increase the romance and the INNOCENCE of the main guy. There are many Edwards in popular television shows... The Vampire Diaries (Stefan), True Blood (The Bill) and of course Louis in Interview With The Vampire.

If you can embrace them then why not Edward?

Well, this hit me in the feels

Kellan and Ashley were besties during the filming of the series and made a movie together called A Warrior's Heart (2011). Looks like they're still bonded today

^ I swear, it's as if Catherine Hardwicke lives under a rock when it comes to acknowledging the response to these films.

That sounds a lot grittier and more daring. Yeah I don't like films taking too many liberties with source material but given the story's inability to engage with a male audience in a lot of areas, I think Hardwicke missed out here on recognizing the potential. Sounds as if Bella was a lot fiercer and more self driven, which probably would have helped viewers embrace her romance with Edward a lot more. He's always saving her in the movies, and that didn't go down well with a modern audience who fail to see the equality or substance of their relationship until Breaking Dawn.

Not sure what I think of them killing off the two dads that soon, though. Guess the writer wanted Bella to stand alone and grow up quickly, aka Tris in Divergent.

But Melissa Rosenberg did NOT write these films well. His version sounds like it would've been action packed, which... If they got the right balance of that and the love story, it could have been GREAT.

Feels like a missed opportunity. Damn it, Catherine.
