The Twilight Saga: New Moon Extended Edition Blu-ray review

New Moon

Lionsgate Films / Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13
130 minutes
Release Date: October 23, 2018

The opening dream scene in the meadow gets me every time as Bella sees herself as old with Edward. I think it is a beautiful concept as Bella (Kristen Stewart) worries about aging while her true vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) stays forever young at seventeen, and will not turn her. It’s Bella’s birthday, and as much as she “doth” protests, everyone reminds her of the celebrating. She really doesn’t get Edward’s attitude, until her disastrous birthday party at the Cullens where she almost becomes dessert that Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) explains it all to her.

Catherine Hardwicke‘s Twilight started the craze in 2008 with teens everywhere taking sides as either Team Edward or Team Jacob. Based on the books by Stephenie Meyer, young Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) was the envy of every girl, to have the heart of sparkly vampire, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and abs-olutely hunky Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).

One And Two Movie Header

Going to the theater during the summer can become fairly overwhelming with the release of multiple superhero blockbusters. These powerhouse movies tend to take the spotlight away from the modest, character-driven films that grace the screens; however, it looks like IFC Midnight has managed to find a compelling and unique way to incorporate the use of superpowers into a small-scale, powerful family drama with One & Two — and it looks very promising.

You can check out the trailer for One & Two here below.
