I agree, I think there were a few things that didn't sit well with me with camera angles and such. And New Moon has an entirely different feeling that wouldn't benefit from shots like that. I think as long as the script stays as closely to the books as Twilight did, we're in good shape.

I didn't like hardwicke's use of extreme close ups and just some of her shots didn't sit write with me. Which i know is more the DPs problem but as director she has final say. I think she did i good job and i admire her for the continuing the promo tour around europe even after the new broke. It was the highest grossing movie EVER for a November release and i know it got alot of credits for Hardwicke been one of the top gorssing movies for a female director. I'm just hoping they find someone to bring NM and Exclispe to life. As their filming them back to back the director will have to do both. Who are you guys thinking? As summit has a history of finding new talent it could be an amazing break for a new director especially now it'll be the cast and story that carry the movie rather then a big name directors as happened with Titanic and Jurassic park.

The original reports, the first ones out, said she was fired. Now the newer ones are saying it was a "joint decision" between Hardwicke and Summit. They are covering their butts because they fired a female director and don't want the backlash from the fans and feminist groups, which would totally happen.

I also agree that it is a good thing they are replacing her. I really like what she did with Twilight, and I hope they don't change the sets and things that she used. I just think that a better person could bring the new movies to a different level. I can not wait to see what happens, even though I do not want to see the second and third movies because they made me rather upset ha but really It is exciting to think about the new direction the films are going to take.
