New Moon Movie Review

Well, New Moon was about what I was expecting. I went with my sis and a friend, and we ended up laughing through quite a bit of the movie, even though most of it wasn't meant to be funny. The whole thing is just one big cliche. And I seriously weep for any teen girls who think Bella is a wonderful role model. She's just... nothing. She keeps saying that she can't believe Edward would fall for her, because he's so hot and has all his mad vampire skillz and she doesn't have anything. And frankly I can't believe it either. What on earth does he see in her? She has no defining characteristics other than that she's supposed to be a bit of a klutz and kind of beautiful, but other than that she's not really funny, smart, or athletic. She doesn't even seem like she's that fun to be around. There's this one part in the movie where one of the Volturi tries to read her mind and he says, "I sense nothing", and I leaned over to my sister and said "That's cuz there's nothing there!". Bella just sits there and lets her life and the men in it take her wherever. At one point sis leaned over to me and whispered, "Can't she even fucking drive her own truck?" Because either Edward or Jake was usually chauffeuring her around in her own vehicle. And the guys seemed to spend the majority of their time with their shirts off. At the end we decided that the best worst part (cuz there is no "good" part in this movie) was when it showed the vision Alice has of when Bella will become a vampire, and it showed her and Edward running gaily through the woods, and Edward was wearing this weird pants and vest with a white shirt that looked somewhat effeminate, and it was soooo bad. Just about everyone in the theatre laughed at that point. So, did anyone else watch this movie? What was the best worst part for you?
