BuddyTV has come up with a list of 10 things they feel will make New Moon a great movie.

Ok, I do agree with most of those especially showing how close Alice and Bella are and having Charlie in it, I think he had some of the funniest bits in Twilight. However, I do not think they should find ways to have Edward in it more than he’s in the book. I know many people will disagree with me, but, even though I love Edward, this story is not about him.
Debra- I agree with you 100%!
I completely agree with you too, Debra. Establishing Jacob’s role in Bella’s life and his essential role in the story as one of the wolves is really important. They’ll probably try to fit face time in for Edward/Rob but I just hope it doesn’t interfere with the importance of bringing Jacob to the forefront in NM.
In addition to establishing the role of the Jacob and the rest of the pack in the Bella’s life, which is very important, I think that Edward being gone is essential because to me his absence is what solidifies their relationship. It is only because he is completely gone from Bella’s life that they both realize that they simply can not exist without each other.
I totally agree with the above comments. I do hope they put more Charlie in—I absolutely loved how Billy Burke played him in Twilight and I loved all the humorous scenes/lines they gave him. His bit part kept the movie from being a total bomb for me. More Charlie please.
Everyone is concerned about not enough Edward time and I don’t see the concern. There are so many details w/Edward and Bella that they could really spend time on that I don’t see Edward being left out very much at all. I could see it broken down like this:
If the movie is 120 mins, the first 15 mins could be of The Birthday Party and The End.
The next 45-mins of Jacob and Bella’s time together.
The last 60-mins could be of Rosalie’s phone call to Edward, Alice returning to Forks, all of Italy (w/scenes, as Alice and Bella head to Italy, of Edward going to the Volturi), The Truth, The Vote and Treaty.
There is, actually, a lot of Edward time that I think we’re all forgetting about. I’ll have to reread Bella and Jacob’s time together, but unless they plan on putting in ALL the Bella and Jacob details, I don’t think they need to focus more than half of the movie on that time as long as they can make it clear how close Jacob and Bella become (show how Jacob is, clearly, falling in love w/Bella) and also make it clear how helpful Jacob was in helping Bella carry on, to some degree. If they decide to add it Edward’s face during her hallucinations, there is more Edward time.
So, I think it’ll be fine – if they do it MY way…ha ha.
I really hope that the NM people are listening to us fans!!!
Twilight was sooo choppy to me. They need to get the relationship between the characters right this time. Go by the book – please!!!!!!!
Ditto to all the comments above. We want the book to come alive. If they listen to what the fans need from this movie then it should turn out awesome. If it needs to be 3 hrs long that’s fine with me as long as they can focus on what the book is really about. Then we can leave the theater saying “OMG, could it have gotten any better?”.
Natalie – maybe you could do some writing for them!!!!
I totally agree with Natalie, they should do it your way!

I wanted to say that I also agree w/Amy’s two points. Specifically, the pack’s developing roll in Bella’s life and Edward being gone as an essential element so they can both see how much they belong together.
I still stand by my thoughts that Edward’s away time can be done in approx. 45-mins. But, Pattinson over-kill would compromise the whole story.
We’ll get plenty more Bella and Edward time several months later in Eclipse!
