New Moon


My last couple of book reviews have been quite negative and to prove to myself and to you that I do occasionally find things I really like, I'm happy to report that I saw New Moon Saturday morning and I really really liked it. Everyone kept saying, "It's way better than Twilight." and in the back of my mind I was thinking, "That's not that hard." It's not even on the same planet...heck same universe as Twilight. Gone was the weird uncomfortable stares and parts that were glaringly out of place. The movie stuck to the book so closely, with only a few parts that were all out invented. I felt like they moved the story along with good transitions. Bella was likable, Jessica and Mike hilarious, Jacob so adorable, Volturi very scary, and wolves spot on to my imagination. I must say I felt like such a cougar because if the guy that plays Jacob were 12 years older I would run away with him! His shirtless moments were of course my favorites and sadly made Edward look a little on the wimpy side. I'm excited to see what they do with Eclipse which won't be a long wait because it comes out in June 2010.

  2. Hey, you stole my idea! I was just about to do a New Moon post! =)

    I also enjoyed this movie a lot more than the first, I still liked the first one though. I didnt mind Edward at the begining of the movie, but he looked AWFUL at the end. Maybe because we've seen nice tan, buff Jacob and then we see Edward who looks pasty, sick and not as buff. Also, I think Edward is portrayed all wrong in the movies. In the book he is tough, confident, talks more. In the movie it seems everyone can beet him, he is always putting himself down and is always broody. I like book Edward much more.

    Good movie, already seen it twice!

  3. I agree that book Edward is much more likeable. The actor portrays him as too stormy and weak.
