'New Moon' Review

Oh, you maniacal "Twilight" fans. I know Taylor Lautner looks dreamy without a shirt, but surely there's a better way to occupy your time than by watching this ridiculous sequel. A step down from the original (which isn't saying much), "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" is pure pop trash of the lowest order. Even the CGI is of Sci-Fi Channel quality.

Poor Kristen Stewart, whom I truly enjoy despite her seeming indifference toward the craft of acting. Matched only by the comic relief of scene-stealing spitfire and probable 2009 Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick, Stewart's angsty, nonchalant performance seems to whisper, "people actually like this crap?" Yes, Kristen, apparently they do. So, please, thank your new moons and lucky stars for this career-making role, then leave it safely behind you and move on to work more deserving of your talents.
