Twilight Saga: New Moon*

I realize that this post is like 2 weeks late, but I'm going to write it anyway.

So, 2 weeks ago, I forced asked B to watch the latest installment to the Twilight Saga, which is New Moon, before that I forced him to watch Twilight first, so he'll at least have an idea about how the story goes. I have been wanting to see this movie ever since Shemah showed the trailer over at her blog, Just Press Play. I loved the trailer, I loved how Jacob Black turned into a wolf and all that, it seemed amazing. You wouldn't believe how long the queue was for the movie, B and I saw it the day after it came out here, I was that anxious to see it, that I was actually willing to stand in line, for hours just to get tickets and then stand in line again just to get good seats. Luckily for B and I, we caught the last full show of the theater, so we didn't have to line up to go inside the theater, although the queue on the ticket booth was loooong, here take a look.

Although I must say, I was a bit disappointed with how the movie turned out, somehow, I expected so much more. You know the awesome trailer I talked about earlier? Well, that was it, I mean a trailer was supposed to show what you should expect in the movie, and I must say, the trailer was way better than how the movie turned out. You know the awesome scenes from the movie? That was it. It doesn't get any better than that, that was, well, that was it. Nothing more, which was kinda disappointing because I thought there would have been more, you know?

Anyway, the movie was definitely better than the first one, although for me it lacked something. I totally didn't feel Bella's pain. Kristen Stewart didn't really show how much it hurt Bella when Edward, if you haven't read the book, you'd think she wasn't that affected, but I have read the book and Bella was more than devastated when Edward left, I just didn't feel that she channeled that emotion well enough. As for Jacob Black, I think Taylor Lautner could've used more scenes, but he didn't get enough exposure, but that's just me. As disappointed as I was with the film, a topless Taylor Lautner made up for whatever it lacked, and let's be honest, he's the only reason why I wanted to see the movie in the first place. As for Edward, WTF?! Am I supposed to find Robert Pattinson sexy after going topless with that kind of body? I mean seriously? I've seen pictures of him before I watched the movie, but then when I saw the movie, I was like, "was that it?". I didn't see any abs on him, did you? I mean not like Jacob's, you can tell Taylor Lautner buffed up and was sexy as hell in the film. I didn't think Robert Pattinson gave Edward Cullen, some justice in this second film, let's see how he does in Eclipse. Sorry, but that's how I feel. As for the other characters, I expected Emily, her scars, I mean, to look much worse, cause in the book, it described it this way,
The right side of her face was scarred from hairline to chin by three thick, red lines, livid in
color though they were long healed. One line pulled down the corner of her dark,
almond-shaped right eye, another twisted the right side of her mouth into a permanent
in the movie, Emily didn't look at all that bad, and it didn't look like the right side of her mouth was pulled into a permanent grimace. I expected it to look a lot worse, but oh well.

By the way, have you noticed that Peter Facinelli, the actor who played Carlisle Cullen, looks so much like Tom Cruise? They even sound alike. I wouldn't have noticed until B told me. The Volturi was awesome by the way, I loved how sinister they looked, I love their eyes, I can't wait to see them in the big Battle scene on Breaking Dawn, it'll be really interesting to see how the director would interpret that scene from the book, I hope it turns out as awesome as it did in my head while I was reading the book.

So anyway, I can't wait to see the third installment in the series, I am hoping that it'll be much better and hopefully Robert Pattinson will be able to give Edward Cullen some justice.

In as much as I love Jacob Black and Taylor Lautner, I still haven't changed my mind, I AM STILL TEAM EDWARD, ALL THE WAY. Why? For the simple reason that I believe that Bella and Edward are meant to be together, I believe in their love and even though Jacob is sexy and everything you'd want in a guy, the heart wants what it wants and Bella's heart is screaming for Edward.

How about you? Have you changed your mind? I can't wait to see Eclipse!

Oh no I am still not enticed by the Vampires Ane lol!!! I tried watching twilight but B finished the movie alone LMAO! =-X =-X :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[

You and I share the same sentiments about the film ane.. Bella a.k.a Kristen Stewart didn't look devastated enough. She looked like she was in a daze, is all. Emily could've had worse scars, definitely. Plus, i mean, since this movie is more about Bella and Jacob, they shouldn't have made Jacob look so pathetic.. like he was the only one pining for her.

In the book, she was looking forward to each outing and had much much more things going on.. They should've took advantage of the beach scenes and how great it was to be with Jacob outdoors when she really couldn't do that with Edward. Like made it mind blowing or something.. but that's just my opinion.

Shemah said...

But at least they made the volturi scene more interesting.. after all, in the book, they just went in, talked and left, right?

OH and about RPatz's abs! YEAH! I mean come on.. if taylor lautner had to work so hard to put on 30kgs for his part.. RPatz should've had put in some effort to get at least a pack or two in there.. URGH! so unfair.. just coz he's the bigger star, it seems. He really doesn't do edward justice at all.. he is so not the hard marbled body edward that looks like a greek god.

Ane said...

I totally agree Shem!

Ane said...

I Know!! RPatz should def work out more! and should work on looking like an actual greek god like Edward is supposed to be! and he shouldn't look like he's going to lose big time if he and Jacob got into a fight, right?

Ane said...

Hehe.. :-D it's an acquired taste Marzie.. :-P
