The folks over at Twilight Lexicon wrote up a nice piece on the best moments of the Twilight Saga from book to screen!
#10: The first cafeteria scene in Twilight:
Ok, so in the book Edward is already sitting in the cafeteria as opposed to just walking by, but let’s face it, it still works. It was our first glimpse of Edward… which changed everything. It was also our first glimpse of Rob… and a star was born. Add in Jessica’s banter and Bella’s claim of not being interested and you have a great movie moment.
#9 The wedding scene:
Again, we have a change from the wedding being inside in the books to outside in the movie. But did we mind? Nope! The dress was old fashioned, the decor was over the top amazing, and the mood was perfectly romantic.
#8. Rosalie and Jasper’s flashbacks:
Eclipse is a tough story with all the side stories going on and flashbacks, but we think both Jasper and Rosalie’s stories were done so well! From costuming to characterization, the flashbacks were an integral to the film as much as they are to the book.
#7. The newborn battle:
We’d had some build up to battles with the dance studio scene, which was great. But add in the wolves to the mix and you’ve got an amazing action sequence! Top it off with Victoria and Riley taking on Edward and a bleeding Bella and it gets even better!
#6. The tent scene:
Given that Fire and Ice is one of the most popular chapters in Eclipse, the expectation for this scene was huge. They reshot the scene to make it more tense and to get Bella and Jacob closer to each other. The final product was well worth the trouble… and even gave us a great line that wasn’t in the books.
#5. The baseball scene:
Personally, the baseball scene wasn’t that monumental for us in the books. But when we saw it on film, it was spectacular! The baseball scene is possibly the most popular scene from the first film… and a popular choice at costume competitions!
