The New Moon DVD:
Because the US Postal Service is 10 kinds of fail, I didn't get my New Moon DVD until Monday, the 22nd. I had to try and not watch the special features that were posted on-line because I wanted to see it on my large screen TV.
Anyway, I had ordered the 3-disc DVD from Target and I'm pretty satisfied with it. It would be 100 times greater if Kristen, Rob and Taylor were on the commentary but oh well. I guess they didn't want to sell too many DVD *shrugs*.
The Target 3-disc DVD came with a collectable "cell". Now, I'm a really big fan of anime (japanese animation) and when I would go to conventions and comic book stores and would sell "cells" it's usually a scene of that particular show but without the background. They usually use map paintings or layer another cell below it. So just imagine a clear plastic page with some hand drawn and colored picture. That to me, is a "cell".
So that's what I was expecting to see, just a smaller version of it, in the DVD package. What was really inside was a tiny 35mm piece of film inset in a card. So disappointing. The one I have is the beach rescue scene when Jacob is hovering over Bella after just pulling her out of the water. What am I supposed to do with a 1"x1.5" piece of film? I don't own a dark room so it's not like I can blow it up and develop it. Maybe put a flashlight behind it and project it onto my wall? Lame.
Robsessed has some clips from the press junket in Japan that's on their DVD. Check them out here.
The Eclipse Movie Companion is going to be released June 29th (amazon.com). Which freakin' sucks because what am I going to have the cast sign at the premiere which will probably be held a few days earlier (official date still not announced). Didn't the New Moon Companion come out way ahead of the movie?
Eclipse is coming out in paperback on May 25th. I own the hardback but I think I'm going to have all the paperbacks as well because I'm getting my hardback signed by any of the cast and crew I can find and don't want to lend them out to people to spread the Twilight love so I'll get the paperbacks to spread the Twilight gospel.

Chris Weitz is a rugged hottie. :0)
