I love this game! Which Director Got the Characters' Looks Right?

New Moon Movie has this cool poll up where you can vote on whether or not you like the look of the cast from Twilight or New Moon better.

I couldn't decide, but am leaning towards Chris Weitz's vision 7 out of 11 times. Love Victoria's flaming hair in New Moon, but kind of think Alice's quirky clothes and spiky hair from Twilight is more true to the books. And Carlisle? Well, I think his make-up in New Moon is definitely better (bye-bye red lipstick), but what up with his hair?

What do you think? Weigh in here.

  1. I definitely like Carlisle's look much better in the New Moon pieces that we have seen. Remember the hospital scene in Twilight? His color was way off there. I'm leaning more toward the New Moon looks for most of them.

  4. I'm glad they finally fixed Esme's hair. It was so distracting in Twilight... Overall, New Moon is so much better!

  6. I agree with most of your pics, but I like Emmett in Twilight and don't like either of Rosalie's pictures- She just doesn't come off as the books decribe her.
    I think Bella looks better in NM, but she is supposed to be pretty/simple at the same time and become beautiful in BD.
    I agree not sure about Carlise's hair??

  7. I think everyone, except Esme, looks better in New Moon. I'm just confused with Bella; I like her look New Moon but it seems like she's supposed to look the same way she did in Twilight.

  9. I think it's two very distinct stories and I like that they'll be noticeable differences.

  11. Thank you for saying that 'Alice's' quirky clothes and spiky hair from 'Twilight,' were more true to the books.

    I so loved 'Alice's' hair in 'Twilight.' And so far, so don't like Alice's hair, in "NM." :-( And the outfit Chris put 'Alice' in, in the Italy Reunion scene... Yuck!!!! What was with that heavy looking, frumpy gray striped top? And why the awful head scarf?

    Yes, guess the book says she pulled on a long red glove, to give money to the policeman. But really! Our 'Alice' would have pulled together something more classy, for the trip.

    Sure they were in a hurry, but our 'Alice' wouldn't even have had that gray top and horrid scarf, in her wardrobe!

    I kind of hate to say this though, because I like Chris. Only heard nice things said about him as a director, by the cast. But! This is "My Alice"!!! ,-)

  13. I don't like NM's Jasper's hair. At all. It doesn't matter if its in set's fan pictures or in studios's posters or in the teaser trailer. It's kind of ridiculous in my opinion.
    Alice, Bella, Esme and Victoria are more beautiful and more stylish. I adore Rob's face anytime, but he looks older (and so sad :(.
    Clothes for Jasper and Edward are too old-fashioned. Do they borrow from Carlisle? I hate Edward's trousers. No wonder he's depressed.
    Taylor's wig in Twilight would do better in a pony tail. The shorter hairdo is true to the book and fits him. I can't believe it, Rosalie was better tinted! Was so hard to improve that with a wig? I hope all of them look better in the movie than in the pictures!! (Sorry for my English!)

  14. twilightislife, I think the same as you about Bella, she's prettier but I suppose that this is photoshop for all of them just for the marketing sake. That's why I hope that all of them would be better in action. Jasper's exception. He looks like a clown with those curly hair. I'm afraid of Robs eyes. They aren't golden but yellow and it's too shocking for me.

  15. Its weird cus I was just thinking about this... Its not bothering me the way Robward looks in NM but I am missing the hair.... I dont know what it is.... His eyes are so much better and HE is just wonderful to look at no matter what, but i am missing the boufant hair from Twilight.

    ReplyDelete
  16. haha i agree -
    bring back the boufant!

  17. I think Esme Bella and Emmett also looked better in Twilight.. and I'm going for Catherine's Carlisle. I think the hair looks too fake in New Moon.

  18. I agree with bella. 6 out of 11 are Twilight, I think. Esme, Bella, Edward, Alice, Carlisle and Emmett are better in Twilight, I think. New Moon's just too fake.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Too fake. Maybe they try to do them perfect. But there's no perfection in perfection. And with this perfect Robward hairdo they compromise the boyish look. He no more look like 17. And the Carlisle's wardrobe borrowed clothed don't help at all. Anyway I expect to enjoy a lot of scenes!

  20. has anyone else noticed that they were all way paler in Twilight. I think that was better

    ReplyDelete
  21. Bella, i could honestly not agree more, i picked exactly the same :) x

  22. I prefer Twilight Alice and Jasper, because New Moon Jasper's hair is really weird - Alice's New Moon hair is lovely, but it's not as "Alice" as it was in Twilight.

    Rosalie is still pretty much the same, Nikki is gorgeous but Nikki as Rosalie not so much - but, she does look better in the actual movie than she does in pictures, photoshopping makes it look worse. (Although her NM hair style is better) I almost wish they had just vamped up Nikki's natural look instead of having her change to fit the part because she's much more gorgeous with her own hair colour.

    As for everyone else, I prefer the New Moon versions. :)

  23. I miss Edward's boufant, too.

    I am 1000% grateful that it doesn't appear we'll be distracted by the make-up issues Twi had (obvious lipstick, Esme's forehead foundation line, chalky-pale that just looked TOO fake - - people around the Cullens would've noticed that).

    I like Alice's NM hair *much* better, even if it isn't as the book describes. Her NM hair seems 'sleek' and fashionable, the way it would probably be on a woman who dresses the way Alice does, or, 'is supposed to.'

    (Really, movies ARE Hollywood - - do the wardrobe people not understand haute couture or something??!!!)

    Rosalie's wig is terrible, but at least we don't have the distracting roots issue this time. I don't know what it is about that hair style, but I wish they'd chosen a wig that doesn't look so . . . fake.

    I HATE Jasper's NM hair.

    Esme's NM picture looks too photoshopped to tell how she'll really look.

    Carlisle was waaayy too pale in Twi and in NM it seems he won't look that way, which is great. I'm still not a fan of his NM hair, though. It looks too brassy. I noticed it most on the video of him getting out of his car at daybreak to greet fans who'd stayed there all night waiting for them.
    But, maybe 'on film' it will look different/better. But I think his 'overall' look will be better than it was in Twi.

    Interesting thoughts, though . . .

  24. I think that for the most part, the New Moon looks are much better, to the credit of a much-expanded budget. It's hard to tell much from these pictures, though; I think the lighting and the Photoshop jobs are much nicer here. It also looks like the makeup is vastly improved.

    Rosalie's hair looks much better to me. The actress is very pretty, but I didn't think so when I saw her in Twilight. Hopefully New Moon will be better.

    Although I agree that Alice's hair was truer to her character in Twilight, I can't agree on the clothing count. I'm looking forward to seeing her bigger-budget wardrobe in New Moon. I hated most of her clothes in Twilight. Alice's look should be glamourous but quirky, with some definite vintage styling. I thought a lot of the Twilight clothes were just ugly and too trendy.

  25. I like Twilight Edward and Carlisle better. Other than that, they've all improved IMO.

  26. I like NM a lot more. To begin with, the eyes are wayyy better (not only the contacts, but that " I HAVEN'T SLEEPT IN A CENTURY blackish thing they have too). I loove Esme...and I like how they all look more like VAMPIRES and less "human"? XD
    These people you WOULD look at if they passed right in front of you, but the ones in twilight I wouldn't really notice...(except carlisle, I would jump his bones XD)

  27. I think New Moon Emmett looks kinda like Spock from Star Trek, haha. Anybody see it??? His ears are kinda pointy and his hair is gelled like Spocks.

    Twilight Bella looks more innocent than New Moon Bella. I like New Moon Jacob, Rosalie, and Victoria much better

  28. Jasper looks better in Twilight but he's still hot in the other pic.
    Alice looks perfect in both.
    So does Carlisle and Victoria.
    Laurent looks better in the New Moon picture.
    Esme looks beautiful in both but i prefer the Twilight one.
    Rosalie looks horrible in both, nothing like the Rosalie that was described in the books.
    Emmett looks great in both but i prefer him in the NM one.
    Jacob deffo looks better in New Moon and so does Bella.

  29. They all look better in the new moon pic !!!
    Ohmygosh its amazing , how they changed from Twilight to New Moon !!
    NEW MOON ALL THE WAY !!!!

  30. I think everyone looks better in NM. I agree Bella is not suppose to be absolutely beautiful yet and I do like Alices hair better in Twilight. But I don't like Edwards hair in either. I like the NM pic but prefer the Twilight one. They should do Edwards hair the way Rob actually wears his in real life, that is actually how I picture Edwards hair in my head. They try to control it in the movies and it is suppose to be everywhere. But I am siked to see it.
