New Moon or Eclipse

If you watched the opening scene of New Moon, you'll notice the moon getting smaller and smaller. As my astute daughter pointed out, that's an eclipse, not a new moon.

Frankly, I didn't get the movie. My daughter's a fan like countless thousands of young females like her. She didn't think the movie did the book justice but it didn't stop her enjoying every minute of it.

In retrospect, if I were a news reporter, the headline would go something like, "Suicidal teenager obsesses over 109 year old man who can't commit". In the end she gives up the buff-body of a teenage werewolf for bushy-browed vampire.

Based on the number of fans out there, the sequel is sure to be a hit. I wonder if Shakespeare would have got the same reception for Hamlet if he lived in these modern times.
