Finally, I can put aside my hatred towards this whole crappy vampire title because now, almost the whole world agrees that New Moon (the movie) sucks; and maannnn, it feels good. Makes me feel that my friends and I aren’t the only ones in this world that are able to see why the Twilight Saga sucks (in fuckin’ matrix code, muthafucka).
I didn’t watch or even read the novel, but I did watch Twilight and judging by the trailer of New Moon, I knew that it’s gonna be yet another teen girl money-sucking mainstream emo romance fantasy crap. But then again, I said “almost the whole world” which means there are still some sad fangirls and gay dudes who still thinks that the show is one of the best movies ever this year. And I’m pretty sure it’s only because of the good looking poor actors in it. No offense, girls, but this is usually why you have bad taste in movies: Emo romance plot + charming good looking (good or bad) actor = Very Good Movie.
“Based on 187 reviews collected by the film aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, New Moon has received a “Rotten” rating of 30%, with a weighted average score of 4.7 out of 10.
Mick Lasalle from the San Francisco Chronicle responded with a more mixed review, stating, “[E]xpect this film to satisfy its fans. Everybody else, get ready for a bizarre soap opera/pageant, consisting of a succession of static scenes with characters loping into the frame to announce exactly what they’re thinking.” Digital Spy gave the film 2 stars out of 5, praising Kristen Stewart for “carrying the film on her shoulders and, once again, bringing plenty of soul to a character who might otherwise come across as self-indulgent”, but was critical of its lack of action, ultimately calling it “a draining experience”. Roger Ebert gave the film 1 star out of 4 and said that it “takes the tepid achievement of Twilight, guts it, and leaves it for undead.” Richard Roeper graded New Moon with a C- and called it a “plodding, achingly slow, 130-minute chapter in the saga.” Source
