"I really loved Twilight, maybe not the best acting. But it wasn't that bad and i loved the storyline. I was really nervous for seeing New Moon. I actually expected it not to be that good, because it was just a boring part of the story. I still liked it ,just not as much as Twilight.There were a lot of funny scenes and the background is beautifull. I love the connection between Bella and Edward. And í'm definitely team Edward. Most of the girls choose Jacob just because of his body. I just think Bella and Edward are made for each other. It is also very cute that they're also married in real life. I was very relieved when i saw Eclipse ( the thirth movie)that was much better. And really promising, i can't wait to see Braking Dawn Part 1 (the fourth movie).

I've actually seen all 3. One being the best b/c it took viewers back - those of us who recall highschool days. This one was a bit rushed, and you could see that. This movie played out as if they filmed it "ad-lib" Just let the actors do whatever - in the hopes of getting it back out there. Teens love it. The cute kids can blow up a building and teens are gonna drool b/c they're fairly good looking actors. But let's be honest, there are VERY FEW - and I mean VERY FEW - actors and actresses out there who have the double package - LOOKS and EXCELLENT acting skills. The kids of twilight DO NOT. Most of them are looks and that's it. The werewolf boy seems like a bit of a snowflake. His voice and lines are just WAY too soft. Edward looks like he's suffering from a serious case of painful diarrhea and Bella is okay. I guess. This storyline was crappy and thankfully 3 picked up. This one was also drawn out WAY too much. But hey - kids love it so....
I loved this movie! It was ten times better than Twilight. Here's why:
1. There was more humor. It wasn't so serious and dark and the quirky one liners had me in stitches.
2. Jacob chopped his locks. What a relief!
3. Jacob's body. One word: HOT!
4. Jacob's body!
5. Jacob's body!
6. And did I mention Jacob's body??
Something about it was just better. It was much more gripping and I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. 5 stars for sure!
Do not get me wrong I really liked this movie however it was no where near as good as Twilight. I expected a lot more, there were to many love scenes and not enough story. The movie followed the book well. With that said I will not tell friends not to see New Moon, but I will tell them it could have been a hell of lot better.
The quintessential vampire movie, yes, because the life has truly been sucked out of this vapid, vacant corpse of a film.
Kristen Stewart's empty characterization made me want to howl, "Who cares?!" Robert Pattinson, though beautiful, was about as substantial as a puff pastry. Only Edward had any appeal whatsoever, but I'm not sure if this was a result of his abs, the special effects or his blinding white teeth. I kept waiting for something interesting to occur, but sadly, the only fun I had was watching the credits roll at the end so that I could flee.
So why would I want to go see a movie like this, the biggest chick flick of the year? Why would I go see a movie that has two guys shirtless and a girl stuck in the middle who doesn't know what to do? Well, because "Twilight" wasn't bad and this one, "New Moon," turns out to be good. Guys, I'm serious. It's really not terrible.
The story is a love triangle between Jake, Edward, and Bella. Bella is a normal (i guess) girl who is just turning 18. Edward is a vampire dude who leaves her because he wants to protect her. Bella starts crying like a little baby and starts sulking in her chair while staring out the window for four months. Then she finds Jake who is able to turn into a warewolf. Jake basically replaces Edward for a while until Bella misses Edward and tries to save him from killing himself because he thinks Bella is gone.
The main reason this girly vampire flick is actually good is because Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson are so good together. They have great emotional chemistry throughout and help fill the movie with depth. I'd have to say Pattinson is a little better than Stewart because when she is acting by herself her real talent doesn't show as much. She's always shaking her head and blinking her eyes really fast. Taylor Lautner is good as Jake even though he can over emphasize his words at times. The special-effects are way better than they were in the first of the series. The way the warewolves transformed really caught my eye. In fact, almost everything about the movie is a notch or two better than the first one. The writing, especially. It's not as "mushy gushy" or "lubby dubby" and I wasn't rolling my eyes as much. I think this film is a lot more mature along with the supporting cast. The entire ensemble was still trying to figure out how they should act in "Twilight" but in "New Moon" they finally sink into their roles.
The first 30 minutes of the film are pretty slow and depressing. Especially when Bella is at the window and there's that creepy voice singing "There's a possibility." Again, when Stewart is by herself a lot towards the beginning of the movie her acting is not as good as it is with other people supporting her. The actor who plays her dad is terrible. I felt like like I was watching a badly made for T.V. movie when he was on screen. The atmosphere of "New Moon" isn't intriguing until after the first half hour when emotion starts to build up and a interesting conflict starts.
You've got to hand to Pattinson here as he is the key actor in this series. He knows his role well and really helps flesh out the movie. I thought the Volturi at the end of the film was intense and smartly written. Dakota Fanning is surprisingly good along with Michael Sheen despite their roles being relatively small. All in all, any guy or anybody who hasn't seen this should give it a chance. If you don't try to fight the fact that it's a chick flick you'll probably end up liking it.
