Great movie, go see it!Now for the other reviews above - what a bunch of wan*ers! I have not read the books and I only saw this flick today by a fluke of timing. The midnight viewing had only one ticket left when I asked, so I thought why not. I had been told it was just a chick-flick and I wouldn't like it, but I'm glad I did see it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm predicting it will make a truck load of money for all involved. Judging by the reaction of the audience, I'm sure I'm not alone in saying this will be considered the number 1 movie of 2009.True, it isn't <more>
really my kind of movie - True Blood is better, but the prior brainless comments prompted me to give my honest opinion, because IMHO they didn't!I haven't mentioned anything about the movie New Moon, because I don't wish to spoil anyones viewing pleasure, but if you liked Twilight this sequel will drive you crazy - it is a lot better!
Exeedingly Better Than The First (by werstnightmare2002)
First off, I don't understand all the bashing for this movie. It was beautifully made and was FAR better made than the first movie. Then again most of these reviews don't have proper spelling or grammar so I can't take them very seriously. They also don't have clear understanding of the book and are not judging the movie on how its made and how the movie sells the story line to someone who has never been exposed to the Twilight Saga.To start off, the beginning of the movie was sweet and slightly painful. Kristen Stewart's acting with Robert Pattinson is horrible but then <more>
has the best chemistry with the rest of the characters. The moments with Jacob are touching and heartbreaking and I was damn-near brought to tears a few times because of it. Bella was actually sarcastic this time and what do you know, even the Cullen's had their own personalities that 'sparkled' perfectly! The story line was very true to the book, other than a few instances where I have no issue giving concessions since what they did helped the story line. There was only one major continuity issue, Harry Clearwater's death, and some minor ones, the last scene was backwards Edward was supposed to propose to Bella and then have the confrontation with Jacob and I'm pretty sure I saw a sandy werewolf during the Victoria chase scene which would have been Seth who wasn't introduced in the movie at all though he was in the book. The Werewolves and the Volturi had the perfect amount of screen time each in correlation to the book. The Werewolves were the band of brothers I always imagined and the Volturi were just as terrifying. Charlie, as always, made the movie even more perfect and even the little bit of Harry Clearwater we saw was brilliant. All in all, there isn't much more I could have asked for from this movie. I only ask that those who don't like the Twilight Saga, to which I have no issue with seeing as I live with three people who hate the series so much they leave the room when I say the word 'Twilight', see how well done this movie was made, especially compared to the disaster that was Twilight.
I'm reading through these comments and I am just... I don't even have a word. People upset about the long opening of showing the title... wth? What did that matter? It's quite a petty point. The eyes that they changed, which I had noticed from the trailers, I actually really liked. It was more of what I pictured in the book... and at least they didn't show any closeups that literally showed the contact lines like Twilight. Yes they went through things a bit choppy and quick relying a lot on the readers of the book, but they tried to put in as much from the book as they could. <more>
I found it extremely easy to follow and felt it completely put Twilight to shame which I love so don't go down that road. I don't know anyone that walked out of that theater disappointed. I found the acting very well done, so I don't understand that either. Kristen pulled me into every scene... her devastation was obvious and her transformation from zombie to some what normal as she hung out with Jacob was very apparent. Her screaming from her sleep was quite realistic. Robert's dialog was emotional... which is what the whole book was about. The character Edward chooses his words wisely because he doesn't know what Bella thinks and knows she usually comprehends it the completely opposite, hence the pauses in between lines. The conversations in the movie were word for word from the book. Some people complain about Jacob taking off his shirt... saying they just put that in there... but that's what he did in the book. Some people didn't like the ending... but that is how the book ends. I just don't understand what most of you are talking about. I went into the movie with High Expectations and found the movie exceeded them. Most of the comments I'm reading are from people that didn't even want to GO to see the movie. I feel like they don't like the actors that play the part for whatever reason and their opinion of the movie is bias. Perhaps my opinion is bias since I read the script and knew exactly what to expect, but I LOVED the movie. I LOVE the books. I LOVE the story and I left that theater euphoric. If you want to see a movie with bad acting go see 2012... which is all CGI and nothing else.And just in case someone wants to go down this road... I am 27, I read a lot of books most vampire based. I'm not some 12 year old that will swoon over any hot guy. I watch and read for the story which I love and I am just baffled by these people complaining. I just don't understand.Add On Next Morning: Okay now that I have sleep and I'm no longer illusive... I still say that the movie was unexplainably fantastic. I take back absolutely nothing I've said, but there was one thing that I realize in my sleep that they cut too short. And this is NOT a spoiler because 1. if you read the book you know what I'm talking about and 2. it was in the trailer. The one thing, and it is pretty obvious, that they shortened was the race to Italy. They go from Forks to Plane to Porshe in literally seconds... even cutting out the line from the trailer when Alice is warning Bella about the Volturi. That is the one and ONLY thing that they messed up and I will admit it's a pretty big mess up... but by no means did it ruin the movie in anyway.ROUND 2: Took my mom to see the movie today and tried to go in with the perspective of all the people that said they were disappointed trying to scrutinize the movie to every last detail, because I want to understand why you guys were so disappointed and why you were thinking about all these petty things. Well with as much of a bad attitude I could find to go in to see this a second time in less than 24 hours. Do you know what I came away with... the disbelief to how so many people could find so many unrealistic and unreasonable reasons to not only be disappointed but to not even enjoyed the movie. I can honestly say that I don't know a single person that came out of either of the showings unhappy or disappointed in ANYTHING except that it came to an end. In conclusion... I just don't get it. And so this ends the best to my ability a very complete review.
Thought Chris Weitz was a far better director than Hardwicke. Enjoyed the film, set up for Eclipse quite nicely. This review is probably more of a response to others negative reviews:Yes, it is cheesy, and goofy at times, but hello! The writing in the book isn't that great either! And I'm a fan! This is not a vampire movie in the sense of, "I've come to suck your blood!" This is based on a fantasy book whose main characters are vampires, and gives a different idea of what that mythical creature could be like. I think given the story they did a great job. It is definitely <more>
a bit different than the book, but if you don't expect that by now, you need a reality check. There were a few scenes that seemed.. choppy. As if they were missing something. I would definitely watch it again, and look forward to owning it on DVD.
I loved the books and first movie flaws and all. New Moon is not without flaws but enjoyable for a die-hard fan.The movie is long and rather slow paced but if you love the world of Twilight then you don't mind. Kristen Stewart holds the movie together. Luckily there's a strong actress for the part of Bella otherwise this movie would fail miserably. She truly delivers the pain of losing Edward. There were tears in my eyes during the break up scene.As for the wolves - Taylor was decent but the rest of them need to take some acting lessons.The Volturi - Michael Sheen and Dakota Fanning <more>
were fabulous! I adore Robert Pattinson but his constant look of pain in the movie is overdone. I wish he'd stop scrunching up his forehead. It became distracting after awhile. He isn't on screen much but he was pretty good.Overall the effects are better in New Moon than Twilight as well as the acting. But I enjoyed the story in Twilight better than New Moon. Of the four Twilight books I enjoyed New Moon the least. Maybe that's why I didn't enjoy the movie as much.Definitely go see the movie though!!!!
The new director did a magnificent job of making New Moon portray the book accordingly. It was a fabulous movie that any Twilight fans should go see. All the characters correspond to the book version amazingly. The story throughout the movie keeps the audience involved, and the special features used are also fantastically put together. Every actor deserves an immense amount of credit, and the director especially thank you so much for making the movie like the book, us twilight fans really appreciate it. Also I know in my experience when reading the book i was all Team Edward however the way <more>
Jacob was portrayed in the movie gives him more character and he grasps the hearts of a lot of viewers.GO SEE IT....cause it really is amazing
Wait--what? People are upset?? (by leaderoftheelves)
Ahh, what a fickle bunch Twilight fans are. I remember the release of the first film last year, and the incredible backlash from fans of the series--can't even remember the number of comments saying "Stick to the book!" Incredible liberties were taken with the plot or did we all forget the butchering of the much-beloved meadow scene in the first movie? , and too much of Hardwicke's own film-making style was imposed upon a story that was not hers to fiddle with.Then New Moon comes out. Obviously, the screenwriter and director went to great lengths to painstakingly recreate <more>
the second book in film form, undoubtedly due to the response to Twilight. I am hard-pressed to think of any really pivotal plot points that were excluded from this film and, no, the flights to and from Italy don't qualify as "pivotal" . But suddenly fans come out in droves to complain on the Internet that the dialogue is cheesy? Hello, have you READ the books? Any actor is going to choke on the ridiculous dialogue that Stephenie Meyer came up with I doubt even Robert De Niro could sell that tripe . Her dialogue only sounds remotely reasonable on the page. At least this movie didn't include such horrendous lines as "I hated you for making me want you so much" . And people saying it's slow? Again, take a look at the book--the vast majority of the story is devoted to Bella moping over the imaginary hole in her chest. It wasn't exactly an action-packed thrill ride.I for one thought this movie was a vast improvement over the first, primarily because it stayed so true to the book. And Weitz, unlike Hardwicke, wasn't itching to impose his own style on the story by using crazy camera angles and other weird stylistic elements that were nowhere suggested in the pages of Twilight. New Moon was fittingly glossy and stylistically neutral, appealing to a wider range of tastes. It was filmed beautifully and, to my great relief, had a much wider color palette than the first film.As for the acting--let's face it, Kristen's never going to be an impressive performer until she realizes that scoffing doesn't qualify as "emoting." And Rob just seems flat-out wrong for this role, but I think he did tap into Edward's inner turmoil better than in Twilight. I thought the performances were, overall, a huge improvement over the first film, especially from Taylor, who fits the sunshiney role of Jacob to a T. The Cullens were, yes, sadly underutilized, but making the movie longer just to give them more screen time isn't going to appease complaints about it being boring and slow as it is.Hopefully this film will get the credit it deserves after the initial tsunami of unreasonable outrage. It's obvious that the filmmakers are trying incredibly hard to please the fans of the book by staying closer to the text. Here's hoping they don't throw up their hands in frustration upon discovering that loyalty to the book is apparently not good enough either.
We were fortunate to get to see a premiere of New Moon in Knoxville. Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart were there to help raise money for Regal cinemas Variety children's charity. I'm proud to say that it was a great success as over $400,000 was given by Twilight fans.Now for the movie! I would imagine that most fans of the series would have two questions? Did the movie follow the book and how many minutes of the film included Robert Pattinson. As most readers will know, its impossible to get a 500 page book into a two hour film. I think that the Twilight and New Moon movies have <more>
done a much better job of following the books than did the Harry Potter films. Robert is in at least half the film which is more than I would have thought from reading the book. There is a lot more action in this film and it sets up well for the release of Eclipse next year. The film has already set records for advance ticket sales at Fandango and with two more films remaining could well become the best selling series of all time.
Watch it, don't scrutinise it. (by hulahoopwounds)
I'm not a serious 'twi-hard' fan, I only got into the whole thing in the summer. I put off reading the books because of the hype, I didn't want to jump on the band waggon. Four or five days and Breaking Dawn later, I can sympathise with the hype. The books after fantastic, even as a 22 year old female, they take you back to childhood fantasy, romance, lust and love. I of course watched Twilight, pretty much after I'd finished reading the book and loved it, it was fantastic seeing the pages of the book come to life. Yes the acting wasn't great, and some of the direction <more>
and script didn't really fit, but it was good. I watched it for what it was, a film, not a scene by scene take on how much it fitted the book. For New Moon I did exactly the same, went to our midnight showing with an open mind. I didn't think "I hope the put this bit in, or this bit or this". The film is derived from a book, a book and a film are two completely separate things, this is something I think a lot of people are forgetting. Bearing this in mind, I was extremely impressed by New Moon. My first big thumbs up was the direction, Chris Weitz has done a fantastic job. The cinematography, the locations, the colours, the soundtrack in particular were all just brilliant and fitted the film superbly. I actually think it stuck to the book a great deal more than a I thought it would and b Twilight did, but I do think you have to have a prior understanding of the whole thing. I can totally understand why somethings were left out, and some added too, like I said before if it was done page by page, it would probably be long, slow and un- enjoyable. I think New Moon is a more mature film, as in Twilight was a younger more inexperienced sibling, while New Moon is the well developed older brother. I honestly loved every second of the film, and couldn't believe when it was finally over. I don't think I've ever sat through a film with such a roller coaster of emotions, my heart pounded and bled, I shed tears and held my breath, which proves that all aspects of the film came together, flowed and captivated the mind. The actors I think have matured, especially Kirstend Stewart, she was just totally brilliant and I really connected with her, as I did with Bella in the book. All in all, I loved New Moon and am slightly annoyed it has only received 4.2 on IMDb. I know for a fact the people who gave it such a low rating will be the sceptics who hate Twilight. Also, I cannot wait for this to be released on DVD, watching it with in the comfort of my own room, as sitting in a theatre full of serious Twilighter going ooooo and ahhhh every time Edward was on screen or Jacob was topless ruined it slightly.
