Buzzsugar has an interesting article on the 5 reasons they think "New Moon" might be good:
Last year's film adaptation of Twilight was a bit of a critical disappointment despite being a box office hit. The faithful flocked to theaters, but some folks new to the story left wondering what all the hype is about. I'm hoping the next movie in this saga, New Moon, will be an improvement over the first one when it hits theaters later this year. While I'm sure it'll be huge no matter what, I'd rather it be good! And already, there's some evidence that might be the case. I see some signs that this movie could be a leap beyond the first one both in quality and in entertainment. Here are five of the biggest:
1. A Freer Adaptation of the Book
2. Two Words: Wolf Pack
3. Cool Special Effects
4. It Might Be Scary
5. Quality Casting
