I know some (should I say ALL) of you will not like this article. And I'm pretty sure I'm going to get hate reaction in writing this. But this is my OPINION and I really don't care how people will react to this. Especially Robert Pattinson's and Twilight fanatics. I will say what I think about the New Moon trailer and will explain to you WHY. People, don't get me wrong I'm a HUGE fan of Twilight and Robert Pattinson, huge fan. I watched the trailer over and over again in youtube. I'm a type of person that will clap my hands if I think the movie trailer is a real show stopper, even my kids thinks I'm weird doing it. But I tried really tried to get that overwhelming feeling and sad to say I didn't even flick a finger. I did that when I saw the trailer for Twilight, really clapped my hands with gusto and said "WOW". But New Moon - the words that came out of my mouth was "What the?". So here it is...
1/ Kristen asked Robert to kiss him. REACTION: Well the scene is alright except Bella's reaction while saying "kiss me" she looks like she's not only flirting but drooling over Edward. Edward's reaction well he's cold alright which is a good thing. I thought the scene will be better executed without Kristen's eyebrows arching like that, makes her look like a slutty girl instead of a simple girl which the book describes. Remember Bella was supposed to be simple, shy and weird at the same time. After all that's what Edward Cullen liked about her right?
2/ Birthday scene - this is where Bella got a paper cut. Though the scene is very simple it doesn't mean Bella's reaction to be stone cold!!! Well actually even Edward had no reaction whatsoever, he's just standing there, c'mon!. She did say Ow! then "papercut" like it's the worst thing happened to her. What would you think of this scenario instead: Bella got paper cut she says "Ow" Edward or Alice reacted, concern came to her rescue and ask "are you okay?" then she said "yeah just a paper cut, it's nothing". Alice will say "l'll go and get something for it" she's out of the scene. The blood drop, then Jasper attack. Tell me would you react to a papercut like that? Hell no! you would probably swearing your head off right? Her reaction to the paper cut scene was very dull, very dry. I like the part where Edward slammed Bella on the floor though, that really got me, lol!
3/ Still with the papercut scene, you can see Emmett and Rosalie reacted when Edward was slamming Jasper. They both turn their heads a bit. But if you watch carefully, notice that when they are showing the scene where Jasper actually flying across the room. They are both just standing there no reaction at all, duh! Should it be better if they turn their heads a bit looking at Jasper flying across the room, shock look on their face. Problem is they didn't do the scene properly hence if your not observant you will surely miss it.
