Forgive me for a play on words but the Movie version of Stephanie Meyer's supernatural romance book "Twilight", just plain sucked. The two main actors were incredibly bad, both in talent and emotional range.
New Moon, however was done somewhat better. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that Kristen Stewart is depressed for three quarters of the movie. Really really depressed. Kristen Stewart, who lacks the ability to make a single facial expression, does depression better than anything else.
Adding to the improvement train is the fact that Robert Pattinson's character Edward is absent for most of the story. If anyone beats Kristen Stewart in the bad actor's award, it's Robert Pattinson. Thankfully, Tyler Lautner, apparently on steroids, has more talent than the two main actors combined, which isn't a compliment exactly because 0 plus 0 still equals 0.
I had to endure the moans of annoying teenagers bound within the theatre with me to see this flick, on top of having had to find a babysitter who was willing to watch a teething four month old. Seven year olds behind me were heard to distinctly whisper "Why isn't Laurent sparkling in the sun? Because he's Black" which made me even more annoyed as the audience proceeded to text each other throughout the movie. Come hell or high water I was determined to see New Moon. Was it worth the effort? Meh.
