After watching Twilight, I knew there was no way I could stop there, which meant I had to start New Moon as quickly as possible (check out my thoughts on the first movie here). Honestly, I didn’t think anything could compare to the first movie, but this one held up pretty well. I had a million thoughts as I watched it, of course, but these were the top 10.

What is up with the opening sequence?

I was so confused. It took me way too long to realize it was a dream sequence.

Rosalie, why are we still having problems?

Rosalie, Bella almost died. Can you please be two percent less hostile?

Taylor Lautner can actually speak!

Unlike Eddie, Lautner’s Jacob speaks like a normal person who understands English.

Is this… a little racist?

The more I learn about the Quileute tribe, the more concerned I get with Stephanie’s depiction of it.

Bella, why do you want to be a vampire so badly?

I don’t think I’ll ever understand this one. She’d literally be dead and have to live off of blood. I personally can’t imagine something I would want less.

Eddie is obviously lying about why he’s leaving Bella.

I guess a hundred years of lived experience can’t teach basic acting skills.

Jacob has abs.

And he’s not dead, so he’s already infinitely better than Edward.

She’s just leaving Jacob for Edward?

He doesn’t even have any abs!

I’m not team Edward or Jacob.

Team Alice all the way!

What’s the point of the Volturi?

They’re introduced in the second half of the movie, and, while they’re supposed to be scary, I cannot for the life of me figure out what their significance in the overarching saga plot will be.

This movie was definitely a riot to watch. I can’t wait to watch the rest of the movies and try to figure out what in heaven’s name is going on.
