I liked it because if showed that making a movie is not just all fun and games, you have to be serious and get stuff done, but you defintly play around too :) New Moon was a great movie and it made me change from team Edward to team Jacob.
I bought this companion at Waterstone´s because it was very cheap. It was in the section of the books that are damaged. Damaged meant that it was dog-eared which didn´t matter to me. I was surprised to see the photos inside. There were so many of them! And the so lovely, so clear, BIG and nice! If you´re team Jacob, the book will surprise you with many, many photos of Jacob´s chest:) I looked up the actors, and was surprised to find out that Aro was actually played by Michael Sheen. I found inte...more

Basically to some the whole book up Bella which is Edwards girlfriend is wanted by The Collins which is Edwards family Enemies which are vampires as well as the collins family because in the first book and movie edward has to kill Victory's boyfriend because he wanted to kill Bella make her into a vampire. and Edward doesnt want that to happen so he had to kill Victory boyfriend before he could even get any closer to Bella and her family as he threaten to do so. Soo the new moon is nothing but t...more
I have to say that after reading this book and scrutinizing every GORGEOUS photo, I am -- dare I say -- even more excited for the movie than I was before! And if you know me, you know how excited I've been. It appears that New Moon is going to be so much better than Twilight, in so many ways. (Remember how awful Rosalie's hair was in Twilight?? Well, it's a wig this time around! Thank goodness! And the red and yellow contacts look amazing. Plus, the "sparkle in the sunlight" effect sounds like i...more

I enjoyed this book as I did the Twilight Movie Companion. It is facinating all the work that goes into making a movie. I love learning about the attention to details required to make a good movie. I also enjoyed reading some of the thoughts of the cast and crew. There are lots of great photographs in the book.

U need this book!

I member seeing it at our schools book fair and thinking " Holy ****, I NEED this book!" and then I got it. I read it all within one hour. after I thought " Wow, every Twilight Saga fan will want this!"
I always love Movie guides and this is no different.

This one wasn't much better than the first one. This one does talk about how they made the wolves, which was interesting. I love the pictures of Bellas' birthday party, when Edward leaves her, and the beach scenes. All of the pictures are beautiful!
I think the pictures are better in this second book. The pictures of Edward and Bella are more romantic. The pictures seem clearer and more professional. Maybe it's just me.
One thing that is better about this book, more seems to happen in the seque...more
This book is as good as the movie...
The love triangle starts to begin between the beautiful and sexy vampire: Edward Cullen, the fragile human-bella and the protective bestfriend-Jacob.
How will Bella survive once Edward leaves her to suffer alone?
She soon finds her bestfriend Jacob Black who reveals hes a ware-wolf she starts spending most her time with him...She suddenly notices, if shes in danger she can hear Edwards voice...Is it worth it all?
She decides to jump off the cliff for extreme fun...more
New Moon: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion (that's what it says on the spine of the book :)) is the second book Mark Cotta Vaz has written about the making of The Twilight Saga movies.

Like the Twilight companion, the book takes you behind the scenes throughout the making of New Moon. It was really interesting to learn about how the new production staff (as well as the new director) scouted locations that would be comparable yet different from the locations in Twilight. The making of the...more

The New Moon illustrated movie Companion gives us an intimate look at the creation of the film. Written again by Mark Cotta Vaz who gave us the original Twilight companion, this one in my opinion is even better. Crammed full of lavish, full color and never before seen photographs (okay, yes most are available on different fan sites but isn't it nice to have them all together here?)

Inside we get; exclusive cast and crew interviews, personal quotes, behind the scenes...more
In New Moon, fragile, human Bella Swan is deperately in love with indestructable, vampire Edward Cullen. He feels he puts her in the way of danger everytime he is with her, so he leaves her in Forks, saying it is for the best. Bella cannot cope with his departure though, and resorts to putting herself in the way of danger so she can hear his voice again. One day though, she goes too far. She tries cliff diving. While on her motorcycle with her bestfriend Jacob, she sees the cliff and the other w...more
I know- I have some kind of Twilight sickness. This movie was so much better than the mangled version of Twilight they made last year.

It was interesting to read how they adapted new sets and locations, since they filmed "Forks" in Canada instead of the US. I'm glad they fixed the clown-like make-up from the first movie. I thought they might explain why Edward's hair looks shorter in New Moon (and why Jasper's bad wig made him look like Beethoven), but not much is mentioned. Lots of references to...more

I love reading about the reality of turning a book into a movie. It is fun to see the process of finding sets and locations, how makeup and hair are done, and especially how the stunts are put together.

The writing was easy to read and well put together, although in the beginning there was a plethora of descriptive seemed a bit overdone. gotta love the pictures!

One goof...a picture is labeled "part of Bella's dream" when it is really the scene Aro sees of Bella as a vampire...more
An insightful and detailed look behind the scenes of New Moon. I loved Twilight, but I am convinced that NM will exceed above and beyond the first film. Visually, at least. The makeup is better, the cinematography is warmer, and the special effects will (hopefully) look professional and seamless instead of cheesy. The creative processes explored in this book are well worth delving into.

There is also info about re-creating locations seen in Twilight, who created the wolf motif tattoo for the pac...more
this book was very good ..its about this girl that two boys like and she likes both of them but she doesnt know wthat to do ..she ends up going out with edward but he brakes up with her.because its not safe for the other boy wants her but all they become is good reads .her and edward gos out again in the end.i learn its not good for tow people to like the same person because at the end it all comes out favorite part is when its bellas birthday party and this person atacks her out...more
Ahh, yes. The Twilight series; my (not so) secret guilty pleasure. If you're a fan of this series (or a fan of Rob or Taylor) then you'll love this book.

The photos on their own are stunning as it shows how some of the scenes were shot (cliff diving, motorbike riding etc) and how the stunts were done. But not only that, there is commentary from the cast and crew and details about how the locations were chosen, how the scene was shot etc. If this had been a picture book alone I would have loved i...more

This is a collection that shows what went into the production of the movie "New Moon." From actors to scenery - this book shows some of the more complex aspects of film making.

Students might fins this book entertaining because it focuses not only on a popular movie, but the movie making process in general. Students might like creating their own make believe movie and writing up all the processes that would go into the movie.

One of the few informative texts that I had prior to this class and one...more

The making of the movie and the pictures and cinematography are the best part of these books. No, really. Pretty good.
this book shows how not even miles away from each other and time cannot beat love i think this book was amazing

I love how it delved into the characters. I love the love triangle and stories.

Recommends it for: Twilight fans
Lots of good pictures, but they can't compare with the living, breathing people I watched on screen yesterday. The movie gave tantalizing glimpses of the sense of family felt by both the Cullens and the werewolf pack. Pictures just don't recreate those heartwarming scenes.

A detailed account of the filming would have been enjoyable, but Vaz and Summit Entertainment have withheld the most interesting stuff. No on-location vignettes, mostly generalities. I gave it 3 stars because even the generalit...more

It is interesting to read about the back story of the making of New Moon. At this time, I am still sitting on pins and needles waiting for the movie to come out. This is a good filler until the release date. One of the problems I had with it was the flow of the writing. It was a little choppy and didn't flow well at times. There were times, within the same chapter, one paragraph to the next would be a completely different subject, so when I started reading it, I was like, What? Did I miss someth...more

Recommends it for: Those interesting in film making
Another great book from Mark Cotta Vaz for understanding all the technical manipulating, choreographing, designing, editing...the list goes on - that went into to making this engaging and entertaining film. I particularly liked detailed explanation of all that went into creating the wolves.

That being said - really a book for those who are interested in film making. It reads a bit like a text book. If you are looking for a book to give you details on how the cast got along, you might be disappoin...more
Rosie Ehle
really cool tells how they made the movie
I absolutely love this; it gives a more detailed and complex look at the movie New Moon, and answers all the questions one might have: why did they put that in the movie? Who's that new character? Why was that scene left out? Why did they dress the characters like that? This guide is a way to get the inside scoop on the making of the movie, and the decisions of the crew- and of course, why those decisions mattered.
This is a must-read for all twilight fans. I must admit I´m yet to read it all. (i´m such a child looking only at the pictures :) But for what I´ve seen it looks pretty interesting. Something I remember seeing that caught my attention was the adaptation of the wolves to the movie. The images were so graphic and the final effect that´s brought to use of the wolves to the movie is fantastic. Very nice.
I'll admit when the talk got too technical I just looked at the pictures b/c it does go into a lot of movie making talk that means nothing to me. What I really liked is this book did answer some questions on how certain scenes were handled in the movie b/c a couple are so important in the book yet might be difficult to film. It sounds like that were handled correctly. Ask me again Nov. 20th.
