The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

New Moon TV Spot #1

OMG!!! I totally love this!!!!! It released a couple of days ago, its sooo good!! Even though it's only like 30 seconds long, its so AMAZING. I know i say that about every piece of new footage we see, but it's true.

It starts of with the break-up scene, so it's nothing that we haven't seen already. The next part is new, its a shot of Jacob in Bella's bedroom, when he sneaks into her room in the middle of the night. I love this, Jacob tells Bella that" I [Jacob] know what he did to you [Bella]" I love this because Jacob feels so guilty for having to stay away from Bella because of he transformed into a werewolf, and he recognises that its going to kill Bella. Jacob is very perceptive, and he knows what it does to Bella, even when he just says Edwards name. So, that quote fits perfectly. Also, i love the low, golden dim lighting of the room. It makes it looks really late, but also that it tries to help portray that its a very intimate situation. The golden tones are very present around the wolves, so having Jacob there, the tones of the room, and the clothing are going to be golds, browns and other very warm colour, to symbolise the wolves warmth. Love it. The shot after it we have seen before; its just Jacob hugging Bella.

The next part begins with "A New Legend Begins," which is obviously hinting at the werewolves. This is palpable because directly afterwards, is a shot of Bella standing in the meadow, looking really freaked out. You can tell because the grass of the meadow is completely dead, and she is wearing the same jacket and backpack as in the trailer. Then after that we get to see what she is looking at; Jake in wolf form. Wow, the wolf looks beautiful. It's so detailed and real, its crazy. You can see the individual hair, and the movement looks perfect!! Omg!! Then, my favourite thing in the entire trailer, you just see a very close up shot of the wolves eye, and you can see the reflection of Bella. Wow, this is amazing. Plus, Chris Weitz uses Taylor Lautner eyes, and put them in the wolves, because in the book, Bella remembers looking into the wolves eyes and being reminded of Jacob. She didn't know it at the time, but she remembered Jacob, because she was looking into his eyes. Awwwww. Jacob as a wolf was looking at Bella in the meadow too, because Sam snarls at Jacob to pay attention to Laurent. It love this shot, because it shows the eye contact between Bella and Jacob. Love it.

Following afterwards, is just that show of Jacob running, and mid-air transforming to protect Bella from the approaching Paul. But, they changed the wolf so much. I like the initial wolf that was shown in the teaser trailer, but this one is SO much better. Well, for starters, the wolf doesn't look cartoon-ish anymore. The old wolf wasn't exactly russet brown and had a white belly, but that didn't bother me because it was close enough. However, this new wolf its brown all over. The first wolf was fluffy, cuddly and not very scary. Unlike that, this new wolf, has lost all of its fluff, and its facial expression, its snarl and its body language looks more aggressive and fierce than the first. However, in the beginning i don't blame them for not getting the wolf perfect, but i think that did an amazing job, because that shot had to be done VERY quickly to be released. Now that they have had time to work on it, its crazy good.

Next is a shot of Bella on the beach at La Push. She is obviously talking to Jacob because she says, "You've killed people, Jake." This is the confrontation scene on the beach where Bella thinks its the wolves killing people, not the vampires. Jacob replies to her, "We only kill what we are trying to protect you from; vampires." While Jacob is saying this, we get shots of the wolves killing Laurent, however we don't get to see the entire scene, and then some more shots of the wolves chasing Victoria through the forest. Then at last but not least, the Bella, Edward and Jacob confrontation at the end of the novel. Yes!! I'm so excited for this scene, however here it looks like it has a little more action. Edward shoves Jacob backwards when he comes too close to Bella. Then Jacob flies backwards and mid-air transform again. WOW, that looks cool!!!!! Bella shoves in between Edward and Jacob, just as Jacob is charging forward to attack Edward. The last shot is Jacob's jaws opening up towards the camera, and a paw outstretched as if he is going to try and claw Edward's face.

OMG!! This is totally cool, i love it sooooooooooooooo much its crazy!! My favourite two shots would have to see the close up of Jacob's eye, and the reflection of Bella within that eye, and the shot where Edward hits Jacob and he flips, mid-air transforms and goes to attack Edward. I guess they wanted to make the confrontation scene at the end a little more dramatic, which is totally fine by me, because it looks cool!!! LOVE IT, Chris Weitz, you're the BOMB!
