THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON (2009)
“New Moon” is the second constellation of Twilight Saga which is written by Stephenie Meyer. The movie is still played by the regular Actors from the prequel such as Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart. Plus brand new Cast members like Taylor Lautner and Michael Sheen. Pattison plays as a charismatic vampire named Edward who falls in love with a girl named Bella (Stewart). We have seen Pattison few years ago in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” (2005) as Harry’s competitor. The former Director of “Twilight” (2008), Catherine Hardwicke is now replaced by Paul Weitz. Hardwicke’s version of “Twilight” was filled with more romantic atmospheres. She was undoubtedly success to build the chemistry between two main characters. On the contrary, Weitz doesn’t get into the right track to create such emotions. At the beginning, I think whoever the Director of thiz second movie should have more chance to create attractive plots, considering the conflicts will become intense based on original contents. The other weakness of thiz movie is on the action sequences. The actions sequences may be supported by more Special Effects but the actions are clearly too brief in most of the times and it surely doesn’t create even a single memorable thrill. We remember the first “Twilight”, the scene when Edward came to save Bella from a bunch of bad guys or the fight scene in a baseball field. The only scene that I like on thiz movie is when Bella has a dream about her grandmother in a beautiful forest. In that scene, suddenly Edward appears and Bella realizes later, that is not her grandmother but it is herself getting older in Edwards’s arms. It’s a good metaphor to reflect the problem that they are facing.
