the end of the Twilight Saga (2): New Moon

Two movies in, and it is going downhill.  The second movie wasn't as good as the first.  That said, the best bits of the second movie were better than the best bits of the first one. Also, I love Michael Sheen, and I was thrilled to see him in the movie as one of the most badass villains featured.

Look at him.  He's just so badass.  Unfortunately, his lines weren't awesome, and weird phrasing frequently took all the wind out of his awesomeness sails.

The romances are arguably getting even more creepy and abusive in this one, and I'm very unclear on whether Bella was just hallucinating Edward when she was seeing those visions, or whether he was actually projecting himself into her mind when she was in a hightened state of danger or something.

I'm starting to think it would be fun to write my own version of the Twilight narrative -- completely change basically everything, but keep the basic character outlines and roles and settings.  Like, I would definitely add fairies.  And more lampshades.  So many lampshades.

I will report back after Movie #3 of the Twilight Saga.
