I've watched it twice since yesterday. It just gets better every time I watch it!

My main complaint is the way they made them look.

I ordered it on MOD yesterday morning when I realized it was released the same day as on DVD. I watched Twilight when it came out on DVD, and thought it was good, though Stewart drives me BONKERS in it. I think she did MUCH better in New Moon, but still has a ways to go. My husband actually sat with me and watched it from about 1/4 of the way in (He didnt know I "ordered" it, and really is not a movie person at all, therefore doesnt know about the frenzy behind it) He was actually asking questions and seemed genuinly interested. I had to keep myself from DROOLING at Taylor L a few times. YOWZA!

I have a couple of problems with the storyline though, and since I didnt read the books, maybe I am just missing something.

The Voulturi (sp?) were impressed with Bellas immunity to their powers, HOWEVER, it would appear she wasnt immune to Jaspers "mood changing abilities" in the begining of the movie, or Alice's ability to see the future of the choices Bella has made (i.e. she has already choosen to become a vampire, therefore Alice saw her as one).

Is this a discrepancy from book to movie, a blip they were hoping no one would notice, or is it actually addressed later?

My kid was screaming at me to come in the living room last night. I seriously thought he'd cut his arm off or something.
I get in there and he says, "LOOK!!!! EDWARD IS IN HARRY POTTER!!!!! I KNEW YOU'D WANT TO SEE HIM!!!"

Is it something that addressed fully later. I can explain it if you like but I don't want to spoilt anything if you don't want to know!

Sure, PM me if you don't want to spoil it for anyone else either. Thanks!

Thanks for the hug Ard. Dh went with me to the theater to see it and was fine with it, but once I start watching at home, it's like a nonstop commentary from all three of them, dh, ds#1 and ds#2.

I've gotten to watch it twice now.

I really try to keep the books separate from the movies as much as I can, so I can enjoy both for what they are. Same thing with LOTRs and the HP movies. It's like the movies are "inspired" by the books, they never get all the detail and nuance, but they are still so much fun.

I agree some of the wigs were awful and distracting. I thought Jacob's wig was better in NM, though. Rosalie and Alice's wigs were really bad.

Everytime I watch the scene in Emily's kitchen I get hungry for a muffin.

Oh, and I LOVE her earrings.

Rosalie's wig was THE WORST. So awful. Jasper's was pretty bad too. I thought Alice, Bella and Jacob had decent "fake" hair this time!

Why has no one mentioned Carlise's hair? Because its AWFUL!

And anyone else notice Bella had alot more color in her face this time around? In Twilight, she was just as pale as the vamps. This time, she was in between the weres and the vamps. And I will say it again, Stewarts acting was so much better this time around. All her twitching and awkward hair-through-the-fingers routine was getting ridiculous in twilight.

OMG the wigs and makeup were horrible in NM. I thought the makeup was much better in Twilight. The Eclipse making-of and whole scene on the ultimate fan edition from Walmart was well worth it! I really think they will do a good job with Eclipse! I know I'll miss Rachelle Lefevre as Victoria, though. It also came with a second dvd of a documentary of Forks and how it's changed since Twilight. It really made me want to visit on Sept 13th (Stephanie Meyer Day).

no, it is consistent with the books and has to do with the type of power used against her and her shielding ability which is explained in later books, as it comes to be realized.

My complaint was with how they made the volturi look I did not even recognize Aro for example based on the book description. He didn't look or move like described at all.

I thought I got the special edition, but I got it at Meijer...I have the two disc Special Edition. There is ANOTHER version of the DVD???

ARG!

I haven't watched my 2nd disc yet.

It sounds like only Walmart had the ultimate set?

I'm not sure how many different DVD versions there were but there were at least 3 different blu ray versions. The 1 disc version, and at least 2 different 2 disc ones, one that had deleted scenes and one that had the 7 minute Eclipse preview. IIRC Walmart had the preview version and Target had the deleted scenes.

Yea, I've been Googling and Barnes and Noble has a "special" set, too.

I am a little miffed.

But I'll live.

And it sounds like the deleted scenes I found are not THE deleted scenes. I'll have to borrow my friend's daughter's set...I'm sure she got whatever set was THE set with the most fun stuff on it.

I should have done my research more carefully before I purchased.

Live and learn.

I really should not have watched that. I cannot wait to see Eclipse!

I think there are about a dozen "special editions" of the DVD release. Every store seems to put something else on them. I got the two disc set that only has the documentary "making of" which is fascinating. I watched all the other deleted/extended scenese on www.newmoonmovie.org I think she has them all!!

I went for the cheap version since it's the movie I'll watch over and over and I'll fork out the big bucks for the deluxe set when all the movies have been released.

I so want to visit Forks!! Some friends of mine and I are planning a trip out there in the next few years!!! DH also has the possbility of winning a trip to Vancouver next spring. We'd have to hop on over to Forks if he won that!!
