I feel that New Moon is a vast improvement over Twilight. A lot more happens over the course of the film, and it kept my interest all the way through. Once again, the soundtrack was excellent, with not one single dull or out of place tune on it. As far as acting goes, I was particularly impressed by Lautner, fanning, and Sheen. They seemed like they really put forth the effort in bringing their characters to the screen. I also think that Stewart's acting has improved since the first film, bringing more of the realism of the character (which I enjoyed in the book) to her performance.
