On Loving New Moon

A number of people seemed to be excited that the Twilight Saga: “New Moon” movie came out in theatres Nov. 20th. After waiting a year since “Twilight” came out, I was personally excited that the books are being made into screenplay. I haven’t read all the books yet, but I have read “Twilight” and “New Moon”, and I’m into “Eclipse” now. I think the books are more detailed than the movies. The series are a perfect category for “young adult vampire romance” novel. I think people who don’t enjoy the movies but are interested in the story line should read the books, or vise versa. In “New Moon,” the story line is it all starts out with Bella’s 18th birthday. She gets terrified with getting too old for Edward and his family, so she wants to turn into a vampire as soon as possible. At the little party that the vampire family throws for Bella, she is opening a gift and gets a paper cut. Jasper, the newest “vegetarian,” couldn’t control himself. He attempts to attack Bella. Edward acted quick enough to stop Jasper and push Bella out of the way. With Edward’s strength, Bella ended up crashing into some glass and got an even bigger cut. Even though no one was too physically hurt, Edward was emotionally distraught by the possible outcome. He promised no harm to Bella in the first story, so they all took off and left Bella behind. Bella doesn’t know what to do with herself because she is so depressed. After a few months she finds comfort in a childhood friend Jacob. Soon enough she discovers that her unpredictable storybook life continues. Not only does Bella discover something new, Jacob is surprised by his new life also. Jacob joins his new werewolf pack, and their life is dedicated to destroying vampires, particularly the Cullen family, also known as Bella’s almost family. They had made a treaty a long time ago not to kill each other as long as the Cullens stayed away from their land, so that instigates a conflict, especially when Jacob develops feelings for Bella. She doesn’t feel the same and it really shows when she doesn’t listen to Jacob and leaves him to go save Edward from making a mistake from a big misunderstanding. There was never a quiet moment in the movie. I think the story line is great and it caught and kept my attention throughout the movie. I am pretty content with the choice of actors and actresses, but the producers could have chosen a different Edward and Bella. I don’t know what it is about them, but they just don’t seem to fit the part. Other than that, I personally thought it was an interesting movie and it’s worth seeing if you enjoy the books. But I am not a huge fanatic that goes all out with it.
