I have a lot of news to post about this awesome past week, but let me get this out of the way.
I finally have an informed opinion...
Could it be the worst movie ever? There are SO many things wrong with this film, I don't even know where to start. That script! That acting! That direction! Those bad cameos and inside jokes! What ever were they thinking? *sigh* It was even worse than I had anticipated. Once or twice it seemed like they were trying to actually make these bland, one-dimensional drips into interesting characters, but you can only do so much when the source material is so rubbish to begin with. So many times my jaw just dropped and my eyes were wide at the artlessness of it all. And I know there's a lot of bad cinema out there, but what concerns me is the hype and undeserved attention this particular franchise is getting. Even the demographic of swooning fangirls must have some sense of good artistic taste! Here's hoping that New Moon will flop miserably before the dismal final two stories ever are transferred to screen.
The company was good, though, and honestly, that's the only thing that could possibly have persuaded me to watch it, although my morbid sense of curiosity would have to have been satisfied eventually. I'm still a little embarrassed that I even saw it, but I guess it's now or never, I sort of thought to myself. Turns out never would actually have been better.
And no, it wasn't even worth it for any possible LOLz it could have provided. Sad story.
