#3 I find it hard to believe you actually read the books with comments like that. #12- I thought the opposite about KStew- I always found her to be a horrible actress and found her role in New Moon a lot better then Twilight and even better then Adventureland. #1 I agree with you- if they opened on a Wed. like the other top 2 movies it would have been #1 for the records and not #3. I loved it and can't wait to go back and see it again!

Just shows that there is no accounting for taste.

I totally agree with #31 You all knew it was dark and the book/movie was mostly about Bella and Jacob. And of course the loss and pain she feels.

I really don't get those who say the movies have not been as good as the books...I read the series, love them as a guilty pleasure and can still admit the books are not well written. I loved the movie, and plan to see it again. I was annoyed that it seemed like Bella led Jacob on a little, but that is more realistic. She JUST lost the man she loves and she has a hole in her heart, so she gravitates to someone who makes her happy. Real life does tend to work like that.

I'm so excited that new moon broke some box office records! I loved the movie it stayed true to the books as much as it could for a 2 hour movie! Bella does love Jacob but not even close to as much as she loves Edward.Edward is her everything and always will be, but Jacob helped heal the hole in her heart (as much as possible) while Edward was gone and in the process she fell in love with him too, its definitely not a brotherly love IMO.

I really really enjoyed this movie! having read all the books, I loved that it stayed so true to the book in terms of scenes and speech. Taylor did a good job as Jacob, funny-cute! not to mention he obviously worked very hard at the gym, so more credit to him! :) I also really loved the soundtrack and the story time advances-well done!! I want to go see it again just to really absorb it! Overall much much better than Twilight the director is great! loved it!
