Movie Review: The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Eclipse lolcats are go! head over to

http://www.popsuede.com/2010/07/twilight-saga-eclipse-with-cats.html


Well, the latest installment of the Twilight series is breaking box office records all over the place. I contributed to that as I saw it with a packed house on Saturday afternoon. How could I resist, after having so much fun at the first one last year? It was an interesting experience, as my audience had a maniacal cackler who almost provided more entertainment than the movie itself.

Before I get to my detailed review (I am educated in film so expect serious criticism), I want to mention the movie's soundtrack. I think a lot of indie rock fans were up in arms over some of the bands on there. I don't know, I don't put much stock in the whole "selling out" concept, and I've been listening to it and there really are a lot of great tracks. Thom Yorke, BRMC, Grizzly Bear, Editors.... um, uh... oh geez.

Keyboard Cat? Waitaminute... my review has been hi-jacked! I guess we're doing this again...

New Moon!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Eh, it was ok. I really do HATE Bella though. What a terrible "heroine" if that's what you want to even call her. She whines constantly and is so dependent on Edward. *Sigh...*

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well now I don't have to watch the movie... not that I was going to anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The months going by with the Peanuts window view absolutely killed me. And truly no more ridiculous than what we saw in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Would it be wrong to say that I absolutely cannot WAIT for your review of "Breaking Dawn"?

    ReplyDelete
  36. waiting for "Breaking Dawn" *mope* . (LOVE the eyebrows.) Hey, have you thought about tv--the possibilities are ENDLESS for things like LOST, Grey's Anatomy....

    ReplyDelete
  37. Loved your version. Don't be too hard on Bella. She is a teenager after all and don't they all whine? :>)

    ReplyDelete
  38. This was way better than the actual movie -- at least the laughs here are intentional.

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is fantastic!! nicely done!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Awesome - so exactly the movie I saw!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  65. Brilliant! Unfortunately I'll be having to watch this movie soon with my wife. Hope there's some part of it that will be entertaining, but after seeing this I'll at least have something to privately laugh about. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh and for all of you who don't like Twilight, and even those of you who do, I made a list I think you'll enjoy. It's called "5 OTHER Twilights You Should Know (And Love)."

    ReplyDelete
  67. Thanks for the awesome comments everybody! So glad you like it.

    I've set up a new website for this and my other lolcats and entertainment themed posts.

    www.popsuede.com

    Go check it out and make sure to become a follower or bookmark it. It will be fun for all!

    Right now it has old posts from this blog but I will update it regularly with new bits of hilarity. You'll definitely want to be there when Twilight Saga: Eclipse comes out.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  71. This was too funny.

    My favorite line: "I fordet, dont need shirt no mores".

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think my favorite part is Edward Cat's Eyebrows!

    ReplyDelete
  73. O.M.G!!!! I seriously had tears reading this! SO FUNNY! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  74. This is pretty much the most provocative, insightful, creative, artisitic, thoughtful, erudite & sophisticated review I've ever read. NYT's MD would be proud.

    Oh, did mention that I'm on the way to the ER for a ruptured spleen? I laughed so hard stuff flew out of my nose.THANKS!

    ReplyDelete
  75. WAY better than the movie - thanks for the big laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I don't know what's worse, the fact that you watched twilight or the fact that you parodied/reviewed twilight using lolcats. I feel like hitting myself just for looking at the first image

    ReplyDelete
  77. LOL! I love Edward's eyebrows! Hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Sorry, this is probably apropos of nothing but is lolEdward a Pallas or Pampas cat? Or the European wild cat?

    And LOL. Especially the shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  79. @B. Thanks for the quick compliance, much appreciated. I think the site is hilarious btw.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Truly the best use of lolcats ever.

    ReplyDelete
  81. New fan of yours now. Love the TwiSaga, esp. the books. My 15yo daughter will be mock-offended, but will also find your review irresistable.
    thx!

    ReplyDelete
  82. BWHAHAHA! Luf it! Linked and facebooked.

    ReplyDelete
  83. AHH THIS IS PERFECT!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  90. The fact that you closed it with the Three Wolf Moon shirt almost KILLED me.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Hailing the awesomeness, oh the great and incredible awesomeness, of this.

    ReplyDelete
  92. So great! Thank you for making my day.

    "teh deads" is now my new favorite way to address death.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  98. Yay! Now I won't have to go see the movie, and I'll save $ and I bet I'm more entertained by this than I would have been by the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Oh my gosh, freaking hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  100. As someone who saw the movie I can verify that seeing the movie isn't really needed after viewing this. To be honest, this was more entertaining and I am glad I didn't pay to see New Moon.

    ReplyDelete
  101. absolutely frikkin' brilliant. now i don't need to go see it

    ReplyDelete
  102. You're the funniest guy I know.

    ReplyDelete
  110. THIS is the whole movie? I'm glad i didn't join my friends when they were to watch it.... Thanks, you saved me a ton of time and money. :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. that was pure perfection.... So Bloody funny.... I am a huge Twilight Saga fan, but can definatly appreciate the quirky humor when it comes to the inevitable jabs @ the aprkly vampire/naked werewolf love story... Genius... Laugh out loud funny, with tears streaming down my face like a crazy lady... with nervous on lookers,clients and co-workers alike, wondering if Im about to go postal... Too funny, Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Cayla: HAHHAHAHAHAH! that was so cute. my mom sent this to me

    SO CUTE XD

    ReplyDelete
  113. Yay! Another way to get my bff more Twitwarded - can you believe she's never touched a thing to do with the Twiverse? Maybe my fault...I concentrated too much on making my bf into a unicorn.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love Twilight , I love LOLcats & now I love you. This was absolutely hilarious. XXX

    ReplyDelete
  115. you missed the part where he asks her to marry him.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Totally just linked this on Facebook. It's the awesomesauce!

    ReplyDelete

  129. Much too fantastic to be read this early in the morning, now I have no hope for the rest of my day to live up to expectations.

    ReplyDelete
  130. well done. I hate lol cats. but this is sooo funny! Haven't heard someone make fun of twilight in such an awesome way before!!

    ReplyDelete
  131. My gosh this is the funniest thing i've seen in a long time. Haven't seen the movie or read the book but now i've seen everything i needed to know.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I don't think that was the right photo choice for Bella. The cat needed to have its mouth hanging open *the entire time*. Bella is a mouthbreather.

    Otherwise, brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Loved the books. First movie was okay--decreepification of the prom plotline made up for the lolarious scenes of staring at each other in the grass. Hated the second movie.

    This was way better than the second movie. (This is actually good. As opposed to the second movie, which, if I had not been with my best friend, might have been slightly more fun than a root canal largely because of the lolarious dialogue.)

    ReplyDelete
  134. My daughter said you forgot
    BLINK
    BLINK
    BLINK
    and
    BLINK some more
    for Bella

    ReplyDelete
  135. I saw the first one too and thought it was much better than this one. Only interesting thing in the whole movies was the wolves. Bella needs to grow a pair and stop letting a guy run all over her and then leading another on. She has no regard for her family. Just the person I want to be.

    ReplyDelete
  136. The feline leading lady perfectly captured the entire range of Bella's subtle and nuanced facial expressions.
    Wolf t-shirt = inspired genius.

    ReplyDelete
  137. ahahahahaha this literally made my day. MADE MY DAY. haha

    ReplyDelete
  138. "so sad. i jes stare out windo fer thfree monz"
    "(october) (november (december) " - PEANUTS XD
    "pour me sad fourever" - SO TRUE

    The T-shirt bit is my favourite.

    ReplyDelete
  139. average. superficial guy is way better than this

    ReplyDelete
  140. Are the movies really like that? Cause if they are, I'm gonna see the next two for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  141. Do you think Stephanie Meyer or anyone involved in Twilight has seen this?

    ReplyDelete
  142. Bloody funny! Makes me wish I would have seen the abridged version sooner so that I could have saved my movie money for something worthwhile.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Tragically this is much much funnier if you've seen the movie and so we'll all go see it.

    ReplyDelete
  144. OMG I think this is hilarious. I haven't seen Twilight, but it's exactly what I think Twilight is proably like. LOL. Thanks for the entertainment!

    ReplyDelete
  145. lol lol lol lol LOL!
    I couldn't have put it plainer!
    I actually enjoyed this more than the movie! =D
