    I wish I could have been in one of the cities that had stars from the show. But I bought the DVD, and it’s amazing. I can’t wait for Eclipse.

    I’m not surprised it outsold Twilight. It’s a way better movie, the director of the first one should never be hired to direct anything again.

    Not surprised at the sales of New Moon. The second one was better than the first!

    Too bad none of them came to Canada! I would for sure have gone out to that. Instead, I had to wait until Saturday afternoon to get mine, thankfully they still had some left.

    I hope this DVD is the best selling for 2010, it was really good, I watched it three times so far.
