Elaboration

There will be no spoilers for the movie, so you can feel confident in your decision to continue reading my brief review.
Because we all know my review is the only one that really matters.

I really enjoyed the movie. I felt it was a bit slow in some parts. The actors took too long to answer a question, or stared into the camera longingly for a little bit more time than they should have.
The score, while better than the first one, was used a bit too much to cover up the fact that CERTAIN actresses *cough*kristen*cough* can't act past the whole "pouty" face. That's seriously her only face.2 1/2 hours of that face did wear just a little bit.
That being said, the quality was much higher than the 1st movie's.
You could tell the budget was higher, and you could also tell that the director actually knew what he was doing.
Chris spun the camera around a little too much. I got dizzy during a few scenes. Catherine Hardwicke did that a LOT during the first movie. He at least lightened up on it.

Things didn't feel as awkward during parts that were awkward in Twilight. It flowed just a bit better. There was more comedy. ACTUAL comedy. Not an awkward chuckle.
Instead of feeling it had to be this "edgy" movie, like the bane of my existence Catherine HardICan'tDirect, Chris made this the romance that the books are.
Oh, and he followed the books a LOT closer than HardISuckBad. A couple things were tweaked, but other than that, it followed extremely close.

See? No spoilers in sight.
And that was my opinion.
I hope Chris gets to direct the 4th one. Just please, cut back on the long awkward stares. It gets annoying.

As much as an unfan that I am, this does look much better than the first one. We'll see. I'll still see it, but it won't be for a couple of weeks.

I'm glad to hear that it was better! I was kind of thinking it had to be though, since the first one was so bad and at one point things have to get better...I don't know when I'm going to get to see it but I guess I'm looking forward to it. :)

Looking forward to seeing it too, but I imagine I won't get there until it's out on DVD.

Very good review, I'm going to see it tonight so now I know what to expect. I heard it is really sloooooooow at the beginning too(Which I remember the book was slow too after Edward left, at least for me)


Can't wait!

Love your new blog look!
Seems like a fair review - I didn't LOVE the New Moon book however, so I don't think I will like the movie. I did like the third book though, so maybe I'll enjoy that one more.

I don't think Kristen every could act. I've seen a few of her other movies and I really want to slap some talent in her...

I really need to read the books someday...
