Now that I have seen New Moon I have to say that it exceeded my expectations in every way. It was visually stunning and the performances were outstanding. I know that most everyone was looking forward to Taylor’s performance of Jacob and he did not disappoint. But I have to say that for me Kristen was the one who stole the movie. This is not to take away from Taylor who was equally as great, but for me Kristen owned that movie.
Kristen took me from beginning to end on an emotional roller coaster of highs and lows and I just felt everything that her character felt. I was just stunned by her portrayal of Bella. Now most people would expect to cry during the Breakup scene between Edward and Bella, which I did but not as much as I would have thought. My moment came when they were reunited in Italy. I just cried like a baby. I did not expect that to happen.
Overall this movie did not disappoint at all on any scale. I know there are many critics out that that spend time reviewing movies and have been very harsh on New Moon, but I have one thing to say about that. This movie is more important to the fans than them. The fans are what matter not the critics. I for one never read reviews or what critics say about movie I go on what I like.
I won’t say much for those who may not have seen the movie yet. The wolves are outstanding and the imagery in the film is spectacular. I hope everyone gets a chance to see the film. I do have to mention my Rob before I forget. He did a fabulous job again as Edward. I know when he took his shirt off in the Italy scene I squealed like a school girl. That was my favorite moment in the film, but I had others. If I had to give this film a rating it would be A+, 5 stars, any rating that goes off the scale. Now I just can’t wait to see if Breaking Dawn will become a reality. Cross our fingers.
