All these people giving the film 1 or 2 stars should be ignored (and sent to bed without any supper) as it's quite obviously not anywhere near that bad a film. I enjoyed the first film much more than I expected to possibly because of the stupidly low rating and I enjoyed this one almost as much. The dialogue that everyone says is cheesy is no more cheesy than most of the films in this genre. The performances were all fine believe me I've seen some truly bad films with terrible acting and dialogue and this is a masterpiece compared to them. I'm starting to really mistrust the ratings as I'm just a likely to enjoy a film rated really low as not enjoy one that's rated high.
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.I have now started finding better movies through www.flickstree.com. It not only suggests great movies to watch, it also tells where you can watch the movie online.. Highly recommended.*
After watching the first film in the Twilight series I decided to take a look at the IMDb credits for the second movie,and I was surprised to discover that it was directed by one of the main people behind the first American Pie,which led to me getting ready to have a slice of Twilight Pie.The plot:Celebrating her 19th birthday with boyfriend Edward Cullen, Bella Swan gets a paper cut,which leads to Edward's brother Jasper attempting to kill her.Saving Bella from his brother and fellow vampire,Edward begins to fear that he might not be as lucky a second time. Taking charge of the situation,Edward tells Bella that he is leaving the city and her due to wanting Bella to be as safe as possible.Sinking into a deep depression ,Bella stays in her room for months until her dad Charlie pushes Bella to go out and catch up with her friends. Knowing him casually at high school,Bella finds Jacob Black as a kind shoulder to cry on.As Bella and Jacob start to get close,Jacob begins to fear about Bella finding out his secret,which is that he is a werewolf.View on the film:Sending the main couple on their separate ways in the opening,the adaptation by returning writer Melissa Rosenberg turns down the brooding light Gothic romance for quirky indie Drama vibes.Whilst the lack of Bella & Edward sharing scenes does lead to their romance lacking the passion that made it the focus of part 1,Rosenberg gives the title a wonderful set of funky fangs,thanks to sinking a light comedy into the movie,which leads to some surprisingly funny character moments,as Rosenberg slowly casts a charming warmth over Bella's relationship with Jacob.Given only a year to make the film, (which led to part 1 director Catherine Hardwicke turning down the chance to return) director Chris Weitz & cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe deliver an impressive blend of eye-catching romance and an epic-scope horror crunch. Backed by a jangly score from Alexandre Desplat,Weitz & Aguirresarobe open up Bella's depression with long dazzling,circling tracking shots,which along with displaying the passing of time in an expert manner,also reveals how lost Bella gets from the world.Unleashing wolves,Weitz punches action thrills into the horror animals,as a tense werewolf fight stomps across the screen,as the vampires are revealed in a dazzling sea of red.Licking up every drop of boiling horror romance, Anna Kendrick, Dakota Fanning & Michael Sheen give delightful performances as Jessica,Jane and Aro,with Sheen biting into Aro's boo-hiss horror villainy with a superb relish.Taking on the challenge of being the main romantic lead in the title, Taylor Lautner gives a very good performance as Jacob Black,due to Lautner keeping away from given Jacob signs of brooding by presenting Jacob as a humble,down to earth guy who is struggling to tell a girl he has feelings for a secret,which just happened to be that he is a werewolf!,as the second chapter of the Twilight saga ends.
New Moon is the first film that shows us the Werewolves which they are cgi many people brag about how they look at least they look like werewolves and not like some skinny dog from Harry Potter anyways the 2nd film in the series is more Drama than the previous one i think Stewart did a pretty good job in this one as for Pattinson he was good the scene when he stars sparkling is the most hated scene for many but think for a second if the dude died from the 1st film or from this one it wouldn't make any sense at all. Anyways Twilight Saga: New Moon is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be and for sure it has some entertaining moments.
