I think I am going to hate the next movies, and I'll tell you why: They are going to be half-assed and horrible. The press release stated that the time constraints were too harsh for Catherine Hardwicke to give her full effort. Therefore, the search for a new director means that the studio is going for quantity and a rush job over quality. They want someone to churn out the next movies as quickly as possible, with little to no regard for whether or not it's actually any good. They want it to come out in late 2009 or early 2010; that's less than a year to find a director, film, and finish production!! In addition to which, the special effects in this next one were always going to take a TON more effort with all of the werewolves constantly changing. The first thing my non-Twilighter, technical-theater-major friend said after seeing the movie was that Catherine Hardwicke did a phenomenal job with movement in the film, and she really did. She captured things that I was not expecting from the book, including the sense that it's just a story based in the real world, where there happen to be vampires, instead of just-another-movie, and it was 99% due to her use of movement in the fim. To see anything less in the next move, movement wise, will be a huge disappointment. With her enthusiasm for the story and characters and her clear understanding of the plot line and undertones of the story, I already know I won't like the next movies under a new director. Most directors would not have had her vision for the first one. Summit's in for a rude awakening when they churn out a sloppy, hastily done piece of dreck and all of the fans rebel and refuse to see it.
