Following Bella Swan's ill-fated 18th birthday party, Edward Cullen and his family abandon the town of Forks, Washington, in an effort to protect her from the dangers inherent in their world. As the heartbroken Bella sleepwalks through her senior year of high school, numb and alone, she discovers Edward's image comes to her whenever she puts herself in jeopardy. Her desire to be with him at any cost leads her to take greater and greater risks.
With the help of her childhood friend Jacob Black, Bella refurbishes an old motorbike to carry her on her adventures. Bella's frozen heart is gradually thawed by her budding relationship with Jacob, a member of the mysterious Quileute tribe, who has a supernatural secret of his own.
When a chance encounter brings Bella face to face with a former nemesis, only the intervention of a pack of supernaturally large wolves saves her from a grisly fate, and the encounter makes it frighteningly clear that Bella is still in grave danger. In a race against the clock, Bella learns the secret of the Quileutes and Edward's true motivation for leaving her. She also faces the prospect of a potentially deadly reunion with her beloved that is a far cry from the one she'd hoped for.
The story is about how Edward dumps Bella and how she deals with it. Which is not well at all. I know I'm going to sound like a hater but oh well. Now I didn't care for Twilight. I didn't really want to watch New Moon but I was convinced to give it a try. I did enjoy New Moon more than Twilight but not by much. Stuff bothered me. Like:
1) The paper cut. I've never had a paper cut that made me bleed like that. Was there a razor blade hidden in the present?
2) Bella being depressed for months. Ok, I've been dumped and I've been torn up about it. But I didn't isolate myself from my family and friends for months! The nightmares were ridiculous too.
3) The werewolves. Now they were nice to look at. Jacob was just yummy. But a bunch of guys hanging out together in cutoff jeans and shirtless. Odd dont you think? Especially when it's raining. My first thought would be a gang of strippers or something. At least the vampires were doing good trying to fit in. Shouldn't the werewolves try to fit in too? Maybe throw on a wife beater or something?
Those were the main things and I know they are minor. For the most part, the movie was just meh for me. Will I watch Eclipse? I don't know. Especially since the book pissed me off.
