Facebook comment: Diana “absolutely LOVED it! My husband went with me and he enjoyed it as well. The special effects were awesome! I just hated the way they ended it. I know it was a good way to get everyone waiting for part 3!”
Facebook comment: Kathleen “loved New Moon. It was much better than Twilight including the acting, script, soundtrack and the backing colour. Chris Weitz is a utter genius! I actually liked the way it ended…It was like a cliff-hanger but it wasnt like it said to be continued…which i totally hate in movies. So I think iChris Weitz ended it smoothly :)”
Facebook comment: Lara from Denver: “Chris Weitz … please be my boyfriend! ;-} He’s a super-genius to take my least favorite book in the series and make it such an AWESOME movie! I hope he gets to direct Breaking Dawn. I even felt a little tinge of pity for poor Jacob at the end ;-< so I KNOW this was good!!
Website comment: Luxie: “Wow Melissa, Christen… you girls are dedicated! And we love you for it!!! I too agree that the vamp makeup was a bit clownish/technicolor at times. I agree too ’bout the Volturi scene…..
Why couldn’t Alice fight back (a little at least?) And damn… did Edward get his @$ handed to him or what? Maybe it was due to him being weak from not feeding regularly when he was in hiding, away from Bella. In the book doesn’t Bella mention (on the way home when she thinks she’s dreaming) that ‘her Edward’ was usually more well fed… she was taking about his eyes being black….That reminds me…. what color were Edward’s eyes in Voltera? Were they golden? ‘Cause they shoulda been black, right?
