SPOILERS AHEAD! PLEASE DON'T READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED NEW MOON. THANKS. Hey everyone, I wasn't sure if anyone had put up a section on the reviews to New Moon. I saw it about two weeks ago on a Sunday morning at an 11 a.m. showing. After watching it I'd have to say I was actually disappointed with whoever directed it. I'll admit the story was there but they left out a whole lot in my honest opinion. Yes they did get the main highlights of the book but I don't know. To me the 'new' meadow wasn't the same. I liked the original meadow. To me the acting of Kristen and Robert was good but I thought Jacob needed a lot of work. Sure we all knew he 'worked out' for the part but I thought he needed to put a lot more emotion into his acting. I felt as if he was just repeating the lines he read over and over again. The wolves when they transformed was well done but I thought they were a bit too big in reality. When I pictured them in my mind I figured they be about the size of a full grown moose and not as big as a tree. I thought that was blown out of perspective. The motorcycle scene was excellent. Just what I had pictured but I was hoping we'd see more of Bella and Jake fixing them up. Bella seeing Edward was freaking but somehow cool. I loved the way they did it. Whatever they did to have Edward talking with her and being a ghost nobody but she could see was sweet. In regards to Bella and Alice going to Italy, I personally wanted to see Alice steal the Yellow Porsche but no, we just see it suddenly going down the road. The meeting with the Volturi was done very well. Dakota Fanning who played Jane did an excellent job. Most scenes to me were too dark, so dark I could hardly tell what was going on. I think the director needed a lot of work. Whoever directed the original one should have come back and kept on going with this one. I enjoyed the scenery in the first movie and the score. The soundtrack to this one was pretty good but I'm not sure about the score yet. I haven't bought it so I cannot grade it. Above all I'll get the movie when it comes out and I'm very curious to see how they workout Eclipse. Very curious indeed. I hope they don't cut out the part where Bella punches the Jake in the face because he breaks her hand or wrist or whatever. Thoughts?? P.S. – Food and Drink should be banned from theatres. Especially popcorn. I had a group of people behind me who were too noisy with their popcorn and the bag. Throughout the movie I’d hear that noise at the part where the talking was the quietest. Stupid people.
