Daily Dish: No Love for New Moon

Fans may flock to the theaters, but critics aren’t loving the “Twilight” sequel.

The critics have spoken, and they think New Moon is a disappointment.

“Their charisma is by Madame Tussaud,” Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times said of the film’s young actors.

Team Edward, avert your eyes: The Boston Globe’s Ty Burr isn’t kind to your hero.

“When he’s onscreen, Pattinson’s Edward is all emo posturing under a trembling bouffant – the actor suddenly seems to be embarrassed to be here,” Burr said. “Lautner’s performance, by contrast, has the warmth of an actual human.”

Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times said the chemistry between Bella and Jacob just isn’t there: “The connection between these two is so self-evidently non-romantic that it turns out not to be much of a diversion.”

Variety said Edward plays a major part in a huge cliffhanger scene, but his presence is otherwise minimal in this film.

  1. I remember skipping huge chunks of the New Moon book. I think they were at a disadvantage because of the material. New Moon was the least interesting of all of the Twilight books.

  2. I agree @ mk_ultra: this was the worst book of all – it was a lot of blah blah blah teen angst. I am still excited to see the movie this evening, though – I bought my ticket a month ago!

  3. bah humbug…New Moon was my fave book of the entire saga! And I think Taylor did a great job at portraying Jacob. Plus, New Moon was waaaay better than Twilight. Everyone’s acting improved greatly. Not the mention how closely the story line was followed.

    Boo the critics!!!
