Finally, after so many long months,it's here! I was lucky enough to see it at 12:01 AM on Friday morning. My girlfriend and I went to see Twilight first, then New Moon.
A total of 9 hours at the theater, but well worth the wait.
I thought the movie was phenomenal! Here's a list of what I loved, and what I wasn't thrilled with.
The acting by the 3 stars, Rob, Kristen and Taylor was absolutely breathtaking. Even Taylor, who I am not a fan of, made me weep for his his pain.
Rob was so moving in not only his expressions, but his voice and his eyes. The pain, the longing, the restraint, and the "uptightness" that is all Edward was PERFECTION.
Kristen's portrayal of Bella still left me wanting a little more emotion, but I was really pleased with her performance.
Billy Burke is a total scene stealer as Charlie.
The humans were great...Jessica was a crack up.
Chris's directing and vision was beautiful.
The volturi were scary!
The wolves were amazing!
Things I did not like:
The wolf pack; bad acting...all the way around
The editing was terrible. They jumped from scene to scene so quickly that it ruined not only the previous scene, but the new one.
I hated the beginning of the movie because they started it with Bella running through the crowds in Italy.
So many pivotal scenes were left out, and I'm not talking about not enough Edward. I thought there was enough...but what really pissed me off is after they return from Italy (which btw, there's no trip home, they're just there).
No confrontation between Charlie and Edward, at all. That was a major FAIL.
After they are home and back in Bella's bedroom, and Edward tells her there's no hurry to change her-BOOM, they're in the Cullen's house. No discussion at all about putting it to a vote. Major FAIL there.
Victoria-bleh..did nothing for me.
Will I see it again??? Oh hell yes. Going again tomorrow and Monday. Am I disappointed? A little, but not enough to ruin it for me.
Bring on Eclipse!! I thought the ending was brilliant.
