So yes, I was part of the insanity that is Twilight and New Moon. Last night was no exception to that insanity. After discovering these books a good while back, I have done nothing but count down the days to this movie…The book was fabulous and I don’t care to admit how many times I have actually read—er re-read— the book–all of it, let’s just say I really know my stuff on it. So, last night we (as in myself, my sissy, and several of my awesome girlfriends I work with) hit up the theater for the 9 pm showing of Twilight–which was as exciting for me because even though I know this movie line for line and again, will not admit how many times I have seen it, I have not seen it on “the big screen”–that’s right, I was a normal girl living a normal life when this hit theaters in November 2008. Now, I am not as normal….ok, let’s just face it, I am delusionally obsessed with anything and everything remotely related to this series. So, I got to see it on the big screen and I was not disappointed. Edward is even finer when he is 10+feet tall. 🙂 ha. After that, the moment we had all been waiting for…drum rolls ensue…yes, New Moon. Oh.My.Edward was it FABULOUS. I loved it. I thought it was perfect, they kept all the main key points and I thought the CG Animation was brilliant. I loved everything. I don’t think I would have changed a thing about it. I like the soundtrack played through some of the scenes. My heart ached each time we had to see Bella screaming in her bed from a nightmare…sadness. Jacob was really spotlighted of course in this book and I really enjoyed seeing more of him and his transformation. He was amazing. I almost want to be team Jacob, but who am I kidding..I read the books, I know who gets the girl ;). The Wolf Pack was not to disappoint either…those boys did an amazing job. I loved them all! I don’t think I have one bad thing to say about any of it. It was funny, it was touching, it was sad, it was emotional, it was…perfect. It was all I hoped it would be. My favorite part (s)–I had a hard time narrowing it down– I think would be 1) when Jacob transformed in front of her for the first time, 2) when they had to cast the vote and 3) when Jake and Edward started to fight and she stepped between them and told them that neither of them could fight without hurting her…aw my heart! I am even more excited that I have tickets to see it again on Sunday! YAY!!! This is one I will be watching over and over and over again when it is released on DVD. What a fantastic night!
