As you know by now, the latest installment of the Twilight movie franchise, The Twilight Saga: New Moon opened to beat the opening day record of The Dark Knight, earning $26 million on its first day, and then moving on to conquer the third spot on the record debut list earning $141 million on its first weekend. Here are some of the movie’s best moments.

#4 The Paper cut and the Break Up
Mush aside, there would be no New Moon without the break up. I think that this scene was handled quite well in the movie. Teenage girls had their fill of tragedy, confusion and true love with this scene, yet it was not overdone and overly saccharine.

It is one testament of sacrifice and true love, vampire style. The rest of Hollywood surely have exploited this formula before, but not in the way Stephanie Meyer and New Moon did it.

This pivotal scene was made even better with Kristen Stewart’s performance. Admit it, being in a room filled with vampires and you get a paper cut. It defies all logic that all these supposedly refined vampires would start attacking you; much like being naked in a crowded room of men could make them start raping you. But the movie tried to stay true to the book and the scene was made truly magical by Stewart’s acting.

#3 Meet the Wolves, Bella
One should note that the computer graphics done on the werewolves were really breath-taking and top notch. They were gruesome, big, and completely scary (but kinda cute), almost like how Meyer depicted them in her book.

This scene deserves mention because it introduces us to Laurent’s evilness and holds a surprise when Bella is saved by… another werewolf. This is one of the few times the movie changed what was written in the book. In the book, a pack of werewolves saved Bella, but here we only have one. Maybe it was to give more importance to Jacob’s character and would build into the next scenes where we find Jacob again saving Bella from sure death from diving off a cliff into dangerous waters.

#2 Romeo and Juliet: Redux, Well Almost
One of Shakespeare’s greatest love stories ended in tragedy when Romeo thought that Juliet had died and killed himself. Meyer actually took that ending and stretched it into New Moon’s plot.

After seeing that Alice was gone and hearing from Rosalie that Alice thinks Bella’s dead, Edward calls Bella only to get Jacob on the line. Edward asks for Bella’s dad only to be told that he was at a funeral.

Thinking that this was Bella’s funeral, Edward decides to end it all for himself by asking the Volturi to kill him.

Most fans wondered what New Moon would do with Edward’s suicide plan since the Volturi were not in any way mentioned in the first film. Still, New Moon introduced them by segueing from a portrait of the Volturi to the characters themselves. The introduction was gallantly pulled off. In other words, it was really cool!

#1 The Fight with the Volturi
The Volturi are supposed to be the meanest, most evil bunch of vampires around and they all get to brandish supernatural powers. In the book, Edward gets into a fight with Jane, one of the Volturi. In words and the imagination, all Jane has to do is cast a spell and look at Edward and he would double over in intense pain.

In movies, however, that just would not do. It is going to be difficult to translate mental images of pain and it would leave viewers wondering why Edward is suddenly keeling over in pain. Besides, Dakota Fanning plays Jane in New Moon, and it would be at best anticlimactic to have her pin down Edward Cullen.

So what happens? The people behind the movie come up with Felix who whips Edward around like a piece of paper, giving us the best fight scene reminiscent of the fight scene between Fairuza Balk and Robin Tunney in The Craft.

This fight scene was well worth the admission price.
