The Twilight Saga: New Moon

It's okay to be in a bad Hollywood film.  Just tell yourself your doing this for the money.

Why do I feel that this film is based off a "Chip N Dale" club than a book series?

Another Over hyped Film of 2009

"The Twilight Saga: The New Moon" is one of the most boring movies, I've ever had the displeasure of seeing. Not only does movie come off as a bad teen soap opera, it also has some of the worst acting performances, I've seen this year. Based off the hit novel series, where a young teenager, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), copes with the loss of her vampire boyfriend, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), when he dumps her, in fear that the other vampires will find out about their relationship and try to kill her. Unfortunately, she doesn't take the news too well, as she constantly tries put herself in harm's way through various thrill seeking stunts, just to see him again. As it seems, Edward's spirit shows up whenever she's in danger. To add to the drama, Bella meets a younger man, Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), that comforts her, in her hour of need. However, like her last boyfriend, this one has a secret to hide as well. As it turns out, Jacob is part of a werewolf clan that hunts the vampires. Needless to say, this only adds to the bizarre love triangle, in the movie. The acting performances, in this film, were too over dramatic at times, as each actor felt the need to over act the hell out of this movie. Or do a mediocre job, like Robert Pattinson, whom spends most of the time, during the film; showing very little to no emotion at all.  However, I guess that's fitting as it almost makes up for Kristen Stewart's over acting, where she acts emotional every time she's around Jacob and Edward. The storyline was drenched in cliches, as the viewer could see what was going to happen from beginning to end. Plus, the pacing of this movie was just so freaking slow. Even though the film was about one hundred-sixty minutes, it felt like it was a lot longer, due the film's constant need to have all its actors do various model like poses, throughout the movie. The storyline came off feeling like a bad teen soap opera, as it showed Bella mostly whining about how she misses Edward, yet loves the attention that Jacob gives her; not to mention he saves her butt several times too. The only thing positive I will say about this film, is that I thought the special effects, and the costume designs, for the vampire elders, seemed very well detailed. Unfortunately, that doesn't make up for this film's various flaws. Overall, "The Twilight Saga: The New Moon" is one of the most overrated films of the year.

Agree with you completely. For a movie that cost $20 million to produce, they could have invested some of it into acting lessons. I got more laughs out of the guy sitting behind me with his comments than I did out of the show.

I haven't seen these Twilight movies yet, very curious tho. I actually knew a hippy boy in the early 70s who called himself "Twilight" which I thought was really dumb! He was no vampire though. The heightened awareness and ability to leap about has always attracted me to the vampire world. But its better reading about it, so far. I am glad you reviewed this - now I'll wait for the dvd instead of the movie. Been nice chatting with you. (flinging words about on the forums)

@mega

yeah, i would probably wait to see this on tv or something as this film is so not worth renting or seeing at a theater.

@beth

yeah, i agree with you there. personally, i think its a bunch of b.s. that they promoted this movie with team jacob and team edward as a ploy to promote a love triangle.
