Ramblings: New Moon Bites Then Sucks

Final Proof: 1½ Shots

You know how you drink with vampires? A new one comes into the Bar None every minute and there are so many of them because people will always want to be accepted and they figure if they join a vampire clique they’ll be automatically cool. What they don’t realize is every group has losers and leaders, the ins and the outs, the cool and the cold. An ass in a vampire costume is not hip, just an anemic in a black suit. Some vampires suck and others suck. The Twilight Saga: New Moon sucks, even if it is a vampire movie.

Have i told you i’m a vampire? Yeah, i don’t talk about it much but i’m among friends here. i’m not the kind of vampire that puts on makeup, drinks Bloody Marys and wears my dead heart on my sleeve as i sulk around twisting my soul all day. i’m the kind of vampire that’ll get you drunk and suck your innocence right out of you. Point being, i’m more generous with vampire movies than any other genre. The problem is, New Moon isn’t a vampire movie, it’s a teen romance. Twilight School Musical without the music.

Even Miss Demeanor hated it, and she never hates movies.

i’m not gonna drive a stake in New Moon. Making fun of the tragic script, crappy special effects and acting that basically boils down to one facial expression shot at different angles for over 2 hours is just too easy for my mad skills. Instead, i’d like to address all the younger vampires who have just walked into the bar.

Kids, vampires are alcoholics. They both need to drink to live, live mostly at night, are social outcasts labelled as monsters, feel like crap in the morning, have difficulties in relationships with those who are not of our kind… If you really want to be a vampire, the best way to start is to step up to the bar and let me pour you a glass of blood red wine.

Before we go deeper into the Den of Iniquity, i’m gonna have to card Dakota Fanning here. At 15, she’s jailbait so there won’t be any slips or see-throughs. She is a cutie, though, and does a better job with her brief appearance than any of the others she shares the screen with.

Finished the first song yet? Here’s another from the juiced-box and the OST: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Done All Wrong

Sex: 2 Shots

No nudity in the movie. Nothing even approaching nudity. Nothing even thinking about having a layover in the same country as nudity. Honestly, the hottest thing about this movie is knowing that Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning kiss each other in the upcoming film, The Runaways (due out next year).

The New Moon talent is in the beauty, not on the screen. So go ahead and enjoy these pictures for free instead of shelling out 10 bones to see 2+ hours of crap.

There were some brief shots of Kristen Stewart’s butt in jeans and one scene where they have her running in slo-mo. She has this great mouth with Cupid bow lips, and i also like her voice, which is pretty raspy for a 19-year-old. Imagine how cool she’ll sound when she starts smoking and drinking whiskey older than she is…

Kristen Stewart Comments On My Review

Anna Kendrick plays Jessica, Bella’s high school friend. Kristen Stewart is 19 tears old, playing an 18-year-old. Anna, however, is 24 but looks cute dressing up like a teenager.

The other high school friend is 19-year-old Christian Serratos:

Ashley Greene (22) plays a Cullen kid vampire, Alice.

Rachelle Lefevre (30) is the badass vampire Victoria:

The fact that i don’t remember her or her character (Rosalie Hale) neither prevents Nikki Reed (21) from being in the movie or me from posting pics:

Ready For The Bar None

Finally, a silken butterfly. Model Noot Seear makes a brief appearance as Heidi, a chick who leads tourists to slaughter. Here’s to hoping we see lots more of her:

A Smoke

Drink: 0 shots

The word ‘beer’ is pronounced once in the movie, when a motorcycle hood tries to pick up Bella.

Rock & Roll: 3½ Shots

The soundtrack is pretty decent, though the two songs i’ve posted here are the best. The entire soundtrack fills out something like this…

  1. Death Cab For Cutie – Meet Me On The Equinox
  2. Band Of Skulls – Friends
  3. Thom Yorke – Hearing Damage
  4. Lykke Li – Possibility
  5. The Killers – A White Demon Love Song
  6. Anya Marina – Satellite Heart
  7. Muse – I Belong To You [New Moon Remix]
  8. Bon Iver & St. Vincent – Rosyln
  9. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Done All Wrong
  10. Hurricane Bells – Monsters
  11. Sea Wolf – The Violet Hour
  12. Ok Go – Shooting The Moon
  13. Grizzly Bear (with Victoria Legrand) – Slow Life
  14. Editors – No Sound But The Wind
  15. Alexandre Desplat – New Moon (The Meadow)

The trippy thing is, i’m not a huge Robert Pattinson fan because the only gift he has for acting is his good looks. Imagine my surprise (and chagrin), then, when i found out he’s an extremely talented singer. On top of that, i love the style of song he sings. It makes me feel like a teenage girl to say i’m a Rob Pattinson (he bills himself as ‘Rob’ when it’s for singing) fan, but there you have it. We can’t choose the music we like… Here, i think we have a couple tunes of his on the juiced-box…let me know what you think.

  1. Dakota Fanning made the Runaway’s cast?!? I guess she’s reached an age she wants more “mature” roles (not that The Runaway’s were ever Mature, but the subject matter might be). If she’s playing Currie, then I don’t know why she and Kristen would be kissing, because while both experimented sexually, I thought they were rivals as far as the band direction goes (ie; Jett was the leader until record exects brought Currie on). I’ll have to go back to the bio’s to check this. Yeah, I’m looking forward to the movie anyway (wonder who’s on THAT soundtrack?)
    Speaking of mature roles, did Pattinson’s other movie Little Ashes open there yet? Having seen him brood as a 90 yr old teenager, I’d like to see how his acting skills compare playing a young Salvidor Dali (I’ve heard the movie itself could have done better, but I just wanted a comparison of Rob in another role).

      • “We’re playing Joan Jett and Cherie Currie and they’re best friends in the film and became really close in real life,”
        Maybe, I’m gonna chech some old cream and rolling stone interviews, maybe I heard wrong way back when, maybe I’m confusing Currie with Ford. It was a shame that the marie and cherie currie thing didn’t work out afer the split up of the runaway’s as I think they did a really killer version of the smith (not the smiths) song Since You’ve Been Gone (and HEY, twins, yum)
        I had a really killer runaways ep from before currie joined that had the best cover of the beatles Eight Days a Week. They slowed the tempo down to ballad with angry, loud guitar. I don’t have any of sandy fox’s solo work and wonder if it will be hard to get after her passing. I’m blown away by what I’ve seen on viral vids.

        Oh, but this post was about other kinds of night creatures than teen rocker girls wasn’t it?

  2. “The word ‘beer’ is pronounced once in the movie, when a motorcycle hood tries to pick up Bella.” Hahahaha! Oh that’s stretching it, which this movie definitely did.

    Ohhhh, it *was* horrible, but look at what a grand excuse it was to post so many chicklet photos!! 🙂

    Thank you for including that sentence up there about me hating the movie!

    Maaaaan, that model, Noot, not only needs a pseudonym/screen name, she needs a sandwich, too. Someone feed her!!!

    The best thing about this movie is the soundtrack, especially the Death Cab for Cutie song, which was played right at the END of the movie, lol. It was appropriate to save the best song for the end, as I was celebrating its being over!

    • Yeah, i must admit my favorite thing about the movie was looking up all the chicklets on the net. i agree, too, about the soundtrack’s being the best thing about the movie, but even so, the soundtrack isn’t all that. Oh well, at least we can say we saw it and survived.

    • Not to worry!

      If even us vampires don’t like the series, then it’s not a question of age.

      Besides, do you *really* wanna be 13 again?

  3. I’m glad to hear Miss D has enough sense not to get swept up in the miasma that is the Twilight films. I’ve done my research and actually read the books, which are a load of utter rubbish IMHO. Sot he films weren’t exactly ever going to light my fire, so to speak. True to form, New Moon improves on Twilight, but still manages to suck ass regardless. This is tween-romance interspersed with some effects and cool music tracks to keep the boyfriends of the girls watching happy.

    • Total teen romance…makes me miss Hairy’s Potter, and i HATE those except for Hermoine/Emma Watson who i would do if she were old enough…
