Okay, to start I hated Twilight: The Movie. I loved New Moon: The Movie.
Catherine Hardwick is easily the worst director I know. The whole blue thing in Twilight was stupid. Their "running" was ridiculous. The acting was awkward and basically Twilight made me feel ashamed of being a Twilight Fan.
Rob and Kristen are not really two of my favourite actors. I think Kristen's looks are fairly close to Bella's but seriously you cannot mumble on screen and ugh. I liked Rob as Edward but hey that's just me.
The campfire was supposed to be in Twilight for whoever ^^ mentioned it. I think there is a campfire in Eclipse though that is similar. When Edward drops her off at the boarder.
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?
From the moment Twilight blew box office figures into the sky, New Moon was not going to be a independent film. Chris Weitz was the director, and he is not an independent film director. The Twilight Series has a VERY wide target audience, you have everyone from the teeny boppers to teenagers to the Twilight Mums. Soft core porn? LOL
Anyway I can't way to see Eclipse since like Wild Spot it was my favourite book, and Im not even considering seeing Breaking Dawn unless there are MAJOR script changes.
