New Moon Logo Revealed

newmoon

I like it. The color is different, and there has been some speculation that is to show the contrast of this movie to Twilight. The Twilight logo was blue (I thought it was silver, but whatev) signifying coldness (read: Edward Cullen) and the New Moon logo is a warmer yellow to represent heat (Jacob Black). Kinda clever, I guess.

“The Twilight Saga” part on the top was added for people that aren’t hardcore fans of the series so they know this is the sequel to the first movie. To that I say, even people who aren’t fans should know the name of the next movie unless they live under a rock in a cave in the bottom of the ocean.

The sliver of the moon at the bottom is a little confusing because technically a new moon phase isn’t even visible. It’s just all black. There would be no sliver at all to see.

Nevertheless, I’m still very excited for the movie. 268 days to go!

Chapter Discussions: Twilight, Chapter Four – Invitations

 

Oh so conflicted...

Oh so conflicted...

It’s time for another Chapter Discussions post over Twilight. This time it’s Chapter Four, Invitations. These questions come from the hilarious blog Lauren’s Bite and the Twilight Lexicon forums.

1. Why do you think Bella doesn’t want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, “Let’s just go as friends”. Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her?

I know none of the boys appealed to her because she had seen Edward the first day of school. After that, who could compare to him? I don’t think she could even have gone with anyone else even as friends because she was so attached to Edward even at the beginning.

2. Bella asks Edward if he has multiple personality disorder because he either seems to be overly friendly or sarcastic moments apart. To what did you attribute Edward’s odd behavior?

I knew Edward was treating Bella that way because he was having conflicting feelings about her. He wanted to be around her, she was all he could think of, but he also knows for sure that to give in to what he wants and be with her would mean bad things for Bella. He’s trying to decide to keep her close or push her away.

This is almost a two part analysis.  Bella was way more mature than any of the children at her school.  Edward and she were on similar maturity levels, and it only makes since to like him, and not the other boys.

Being a boy, I know why guys play like they hate y0u, then also a few minutes later, they like you.  It was pretty simple to me why he was acting like that, even though i thought it was pretty childish… like something i would do. He didn’t want to admit he liked her.
