Are you Mooning over "New Moon?"
Are you a Fan?
The Twilight Saga: New Moon had the best open of 2009, beating out last year’s The Dark Knight for highest opening night, though it did not beat The Dark Knight’s weekend numbers.
Our review of the film wasn’t especially favorable, but we’re curious what you thought. Much has been made of author Stephanie Meyer’s devout Mormonism and the manner in which her worldview, especially that of abstinence until marriage, has become a crucial (if unconscious) theme for the series.
Do you let your teenagers watch Twilight? Perhaps you are a fan. Do you take issue with the world Twilight has created—like many who find Harry Potter unsavory—or do you find Twilight resonates with a greater spiritual dimension like the universes of Tolkien and Lewis?
