    Oh and I still don't think the actress who plays Bella fits her very well, I think the actress Kristin Stewart is alittle too "punky-rock-y" and from the book I thought Bella was suposed to be softer and shyer

    LOVED IT! Eeeeee!

    I'm one of those people who attaches themselves to a series and doesn't let go. Haha.

    I was Team Edward when entering the movie theatre but came out Team Jacob.... or rather.. Team Taylor Lautner. Haha

    I thought the whole movie was a lot better than the first. Because...
    1) Edward wasn't gray like he was last movie
    2) Taylor had a bigger part.. .and he looks exactly like Jacob in my head
    3) The director was so much better
    4) The whole thing was a lot less cheesy

    I love Taylor Lautner so much <3

    I thought Aero was the best out of the Volturi. I was excited to see Dakota Fanning as Jane but I didn't think she was that great.

    I am going to go against all of you and say that New Moon was by far more cheesy than Twilight. I saw it yesterday and actually felt cheated!! It was a waste of my time, money and excitement.

    Dialog SUCKED! Seriously? "You better get outta here or something really bad is going to happen" They couldn't have come up with something better? The dialog in the book is SOOOO much better, why take away from that?

    New Moon was a COMEDY?! I thought that they tried too hard to make this relate-able to far too many demographics. The one liners really put it all over the top. This is supposed to be a DRAMA! My friends and I were laughing SOO hard that we actually got told to shut up! The book tugged at my heart strings, it did not however tickle my funny bone.

    Score SUCKED! I thought the score in Twilight better suited the over all film and the mood they were trying to achieve. The soundtrack to New Moon ... wait... what soundtrack? L.A.M.E...

    Missing key points! What happened to the camp fire where Bella learns about the past of the tribe and their quarrel with the vampires? Was that all in my head, or possibly another book? I felt too much like they were trying to hit the point home too quickly, we see Jacob and Bella develop a relationship, but what we don't see in this movie is how DEEP of a relationship they have. Again, very disappointing.

    Bella and Edward are mythical creatures?? The one scene where Arrow is reading Alice's mind, and he see's Bella and Edward running through the forest... Wow.. All that was missing was fig leaves in their hair, a centaur (half horse/half man creature) and Edward playing Pan's Flute!

    Too mainstream! I felt as though they tried to push New Moon in it's making far to quickly to capitalize on the popularity of Twilight. Also, I felt that Twilight had more of an 'independent' type mood to it, where as New Moon was just another tweeny drama.

    THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED THIS MOVIE was Jacob's half nakedness, and even that was a bit too much. Yes, we all know that Taylor is hot, but I felt that the skin, coupled with the muffled moans of the actors made more of a soft core porn than anything. One lady actually told my friend that she had ruined the movie for her daughters (due to the laughing), who looked to be no older than 8!!!!!! FOR REAL!?!?!??!?!!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?! Why would you bring a child to such an 'adult' type movie?

    If I remember correctly, all of these movies have different directors. I hope against hope that the next director does a better justice to this series. Granted Twilight was not a masterpiece by any means, it was, in my opinion far better than New Moon. When eclipse comes out, I WILL NOT rush right out to see it and I will do my homework before investing time and money before watching.

    New Moon is just a classic case of how a book series is just so much better than the movies, and yet another reason why they should not be made into movies to begin with; unless of course you're going to put forth the time, money and effort it takes to actually do the book justice.


    *rant over*
