New Moon review

New Moon was finally premiered last night and the turnout was absolutely amazing. The theater I went to packed out 12 theater rooms for the midnight showing and they even offered more showings at 3 am! Twilight and Stephanie Myer really has some hardcore fans.

Before seeing the movie, the only expectation I had was that I hoped it was not going to be as cheesy as twilight. I also hoped the dialogue was not going to be overshadowed by all the screaming and giggling middle school girls. I do have to say that New Moon definitely exceeded most all of my expectations. Keeping in mind that they are mostly made for their fan base, they do a pretty good job of making the story line understandable to those who have not read the books.

I was really worried that the computer generated images of the wolves would look completely terrible, but I have to say they were my favorite parts. The pack looked so good when they shape shifted and my favorite scene was when Jacob jumped off the edge of the balcony and turned into a wolf. Since I am totally, 100 percent team Jacob, I loved that the whole movie was practically about Jacob and that his character was able to be developed into Bella’s kind, warm and caring best friend (should be boyfriend but that’s a different subject). I would have liked to see more family scenes with the Cullens because I like to be able to see their family dynamic. The action scenes were amazing and Jane (Dakota Fanning) was better than I could have expected. She was enticing yet terrifying all at the same time. The Volturi just blew my mind. I can’t wait ‘til they depict Imprinting on the big screen.

Overall, New Moon was so much better than Twilight (minus Edward and Bella frolicking in the forest in farmer clothes) and I hope they can keep up the good work for the next movies.
