Synopsis


The Twilight Saga: New Moon
The supernatural tale of star-crossed lovers continues as the Cullen family flees Forks in order to protect Bella (Kristen Stewart), and the heartbroken high-school senior discovers that vampires aren't the only creatures in town. Realizing that Bella will never be safe as long as he's around, Edward (Robert Pattinson) makes the difficult decision to leave his beloved behind shortly after her 18th birthday. Reeling from her loss, Bella embraces self-destruction after being comforted by Edward's image during a moment of mortal peril. But as heavy-hearted as Bella may be, her old friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner) distracts her from her sorrows by helping her renovate a weather-beaten motorbike. When Bella encounters a former adversary with a sizable grudge, she's rescued from harm at the last second by pack of enormous, ferocious wolves. Subsequently delving into the history of the Quileutes, Bella discovers the secrets of Jacob's tribe while looking forward to a reunion with Edward that may have deadly consequences. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Why did I watch this?!

    Let me make this review as clear as possible. If you are male, you're NOT going to like this movie! If you are a mature individual and above the age of 17 years old, you're NOT going to like this movie! My wife and I watched the first film and thought it was just terrible. We only watched this one because we heard it was better. It was a LITTLE better, but it's still a terrible movie. I was hoping New Moon would be geared more towards adults or even a male audience at that. No such luck! These movies have a pointless plot with no conclusion. Let me get this straight, a girl is caught in a love triangle between a teenage werewolf and a 109 year old vampire who looks and poses as a teenager. Right?! Regardless of how he looks, why would someone with the intelect of 109 year old be dating a teenager? The plot just doesn't make sense, it's more humorous than anything. Not to mention, all the actors in the film are between 16 and 20 and look like they walked off an Abercrombie and Fitch photo shoot. Like I said before, these Twilight films and Blood and Chocolate (which is the exact same movie minus vampires) are geared only towards teenie-boppers, teenage girls between 10 and 17 years old. That's it! Unless you actually like silly high school drama and lots of shirtless teenage boys running around. So, if you find yourself in that category, by all means you'll probably like it. For all the adults and males reading this, I don't recommend this film!!! Also, I don't understand the PG-13 rating. For all you parents, this could pass for PG or even G, if your little daughter wants to watch it. (I'm suprised Disney didn't slap their label on it.)

    New moon is fantastic and is so much better than Twilight (though I do love Twilight) the effects are amazing and the acting has improved a great deal.The only downside is that I missed seeing the Cullen family in this one and though that cant be helped as thats the way the book was written.The Twi-saga is like marmite..you either love it or hate it. And I love it...for the Vampires and the romance and the good-looking guys. ;) New Moon is a great movie and well worth buying. Bring on Eclipse in June!!! The Blu-ray presentation is whats key in this review... The image qaulity, sound and extras are all top notch and are perfect examples of the format and why it is better than DVD... If you have the option buy the movie on Blu-ray and you won't be dissapointed...as for the film it really does depend on your tatse...

    I am not what you would call a die hard Twilight Fan, but this film was definately worth seeing. The acting was pretty great...I'm not into drama so much, but they definitely have the right people in the parts. The special effects are amazing!! I thought that it would be hard to pull off the Wolves...and they did it; not only pulling it off, they made it look easy. My hats off to the special effects crew. The only scene I thought wasn't done the way I thought they would was the scene where Bella and Edward are reunited. Thought it was a bit rushed, but that is really the only complaint. I saw a ton of guys in the theater and they all seemed to enjoy it right along with the ladies...so I have to say this is a good movie for the guys to enjoy with the ladies.

    Went to see the movie at theatre and missed several parts due to young whiny nephews. I was excited to purchase the DVD. I actually thought this director stayed closer to the book. I noticed when things were edited out from the book version, the director found a way to bring it back in, in another way - maybe through another character, but you didn't feel like you were missing something the way you did with Twilight. The special features weren't as great with this DVD though. I would've loved to see more ouittakes - bloopers - - discussions by the characters, etc.

    I love Twilight the second movie way better then the first one. I actually hate Bella with Edward and Jacob for that matter. She is no good for either Edward or Jacob. I am not a big fan of the books. I hate the books more then the MOvies. I would Say everyone is a big Twilight Fan Buy the movies there great to watch and you all will enjoy them to, I love Edward and Jacob there both are pretty hot. You all go buy the movie you"ll Love it and can't get enough for it. I can't wait to see the last 2 of the Twilight Movies. I just Pre-Order the second one at Best Buy.

    I love the twilight movies. I like the New Moon movie better than the first. I don't have time to usually read books so I prefer to look at movies instead. Even though I didn't "read" the twilight books I did read the synopsis for each book and I'm not looking forward to the end of the story. At least when you have a movie that's not based on a book you can work with the storyline a bit as each movie is made. That's not the case here. If you already know what the ending will be and you don't like the ending what's the purpose of buying the movies that follow?

    This movie was not as good as the first. With that being said the movie was still a great film. At parts the movie seemed rushed and jumpy. If you read the books you will find that this film leaves alot of details and events out. It also doesnt follow the book completely since Edward was barely in the New Moon book (that wouldn't go over well in the movie). There was pletty of action in the movie for the guys to enjoy and plenty of romance and shirtless Jacob for the ladies to enjoy. This is a definite must have piece for any twilight fan!

    Decent - if you've never seen another film

    New Moon is what it is: a page to script adaptation of a less-than-stellar novel. Stephenie Meyer makes Stephen King look like Shakespeare, and this film makes Interview with the Vampire look like The Hurt Locker. In an age of Avatar and Lord of the Rings, the special effects are particularly disappointing. The wolves in New Moon are clunky and unrealistic; Donkey in Shrek looks more lifelike. There are some genuinely laugh out loud moments that the filmmakers never intended, so grab your popcorn and your 15-yr old sister and enjoy!
