“The wolf’s out of the bag now.”
Just got home from seeing New Moon. I really liked it, and as a very big fan of the books, I still think they did a great job. I feel that all critics should think about the restrictions that a VERY-popular-book-made-into-a-movie has to stick to, before casting a judgment. How many fans of say Lord of the Rings, would have a major hissy fit if Frodo really didn’t look 50? Oh, but if you stray even a hair from the original when it comes to the Twilight books, it had better be a very impressive and appropriate stray, lest you want to be devoured by werewolves or sucked dry by vampires. Well, you never know, some might like that. I really don’t think producers really believe that at least 80% of the fans would literally sit through a 6 hour, true to the book, version of each Twilight book. Really, just give us a few potty breaks, but give it all to us, we’ll take it, and we’ll even pay more for the longer theater time it would take. The screen writer of these movies has to be so careful to include all of the necessary things lest she receive hate mail, and I’m sure by now she’s probably grown a whole new weave of gray hair over the process. I won’t say much more other than, the wolves were AWESOME, loved Voltera, and so much more! Go watch it for yourself and beware of the squealing girls in the front row who nearly hyperventilate when Jacob takes off his shirt.
