One Thumb Down, Very Down: Vatican Says New Moon is a Must Miss

Reviews can be scathing for new movies, but the producers of New Moon, a vampire film, are being accused of not just robbing viewers of their money, but potentially their souls. The critic in this case is the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture and gave the film one thumb down . . . way down.

New Moon is the sequel to Twilight and opened last week in Britain.

Monsignor Franco Perazzolo of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture warns Catholics that the film offers a “moral void more dangerous than any deviant message.” Wow, I thought these past reviews were bad:

Ruthe Stein, reviewing Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2
“Spending an hour and a half inside a uterus might be more entertaining than this tiresome sequel.”

Sean O’Connell, reviewing Garfield: The Movie
“It’s marginally better than The Cat in the Hat, though that’s like saying suffocation is mildly more amusing than drowning.”

The Day After Tomorrow
“There’s a disaster hurtling toward Earth, and it’s this movie.”

Anthony Chase, reviewing Dirty Harry
“Don Siegel’s latest film, Dirty Harry, is an elegiac, necrophiliac, fascist love poem.”

Of course, those critiques generally left your with your soul intact.

  1. BIL, Paxton once said in an interview that the day of shooting the roadhouse scene his sinus’ were giving him trouble so he was wired on de-congestants… uh, huh, right. LOL

    It’s an overlooked gem because that year there were two vampire movies released, Near Dark and The Lost Boys. THB’s won the boxoffice and ND became a cult favorite. The plot resolved badly (a transfusion, srsly?) but the vampires were outstanding.

    Vince, so did I. I just took a guess you would based on your avatar 🙂

    Oh yea, Lottakatz is a pop culture fan.
