They are both important in her life, and would always be no matter what happened.

K, off my soapbox on the Team side of things...onto New Moon!

Our theatre did a 10pm showing last night, in 6 of the 16 theatres, and they were all packed. My mom and I showed up at 7:30 to wait to get in, and the line was already twisting outside the doors from the inside. An hour and a half later, we were let in. I later found out there had been girls waiting since 8 yesterday morning...crazy!

Needless to say, I loved it. Really loved it. I have a love/hate thing going on for the movie version of Twilight, but none of that for New Moon. It's amazing how a different director can make such a completely different impact. Bravo Chris Weitz is all I have to say.

Alice is so my favourite character, Ashley Greene seriously has the part down to a Tee.
The wolves were all perfectly cast, I don't think they could have done a better job casting wise if they tried. Loved them!
Also loved the Volturi, especially Aro. He really nailed his delivery, part loveable part creepy. Just awesome.

I know I could go on and on but I won't, you don't need to hear it all. I'm already planning on going again Monday night with my mom, she's dying to see it again too!

Now...just seven months-ish until Eclipse!
SOOOO excited. Im going on Sunday yayayayay! Thanks for your review!

I am waiting until the lines die down....but I also can't wait to see it so I might cave and go Sunday. I am dissapointed that they don't talk about imprinting as that is a HUGE theme in the books! The special powers too. Thanks for the reviews!

 

BTW, I voted team Edward!

oh she was great. Never doubted she would be though, that kid has some crazy acting skills. I saw her in an episode of CSI when she was like four and her talent then was just incredible. She's the perfect Jane.

Yeah, that disappointed me a bit, I was hoping for more of her. Kinda adds to the anticipation for the next movies though, we know they'll be back, and what they are capable of.

Jenn, what did you think of the fight scene? I wasn't really a big fan. I don't know that we needed more action and it didn't further the plot. I would rather those 3 minutes been spent at Sam's house explaining imprinting!

So DH and I went to see New Moon this afternoon and I thought generally it was done much better than the first movie. I felt it followed the book a lot more closely, minus the imprinting which I wish they explained but I have a feeling they're saving that for Eclipse maybe.

 

Anyhoo, here are some of my observations/thoughts from today's outing:

 

- Kristen Stewart is better in New Moon but that's still not saying much, I feel like she over acts certain things. Like when she's having nightmares after Edward leaves her and she was screaming like someone was stabbing her in the stomach. That's just not how I imagined that when I was reading the book.

 

- Edward's makeup just looked AWFUL, imo. I thought they made him look pretty ugly in this one, he looked much better in the first movie.

 

- Taylor Lautner's performance as Jacob was pretty damn good, he definitely did the character justice and the other wolves were so perfectly cast. There were many points in the movie where I smiled and thought to myself that they portrayed it exactly as I had envisioned it in my head when I was reading the book, so yay! :)

 

- Though it was a small part, Dakota was perfect as Jane...loved it!

 

- You girls were right, Rob Pattinson has some weird nipple-age going on there rofl.gif wtf?

 

- When Edward first appeared on screen at the beginning, girls were cheering out loud! lol Some screamed in unison "We love you Edward!" Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the books but that gave me secondhand embarrassment lol. I was really happy when some guy shouted loudly "shut up!" after that haha.

 

- More hooting & hollering from girls in the theater when Jacob takes off his shirt to wipe Bella's blood from her forehead lol.

 

- Did anyone else notice that in the first Twilight movie, Jasper speaks with a plain accent and in New Moon he all of a sudden has his "Southern Gentleman" accent that he should have had in the first movie due to his backstory of coming from the South originally? I'm glad that they made the change but it irked me that they didn't do it for the first, wtf? I did a double take when I heard it today!

 

- I thought the old lady dream scene was well done, so that pleases me.

 

- The girl they cast to play Emily was perfect.

 

- They cut out the part about how Bella ends up with the motorcycles, not a big deal but still, I don't see why they couldn't keep it...oh well.

 

Hmmm, I'm sure I had more stuff but it's late so that's all I have for now.

 

Totally unrelated but I just picked up this book called Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and I am really liking it so far....if any of you are looking for some new stuff. wink.gif

To be honest, I could take it or leave it. I didn't hate it, but didn't find myself saying, "oh yeah, this is great" either. I would have rather had more time with the wolves, or the scene from the plane ride home. But it didn't take anything away from the movie, and it did let us see what Felix and Dimitri could be capable of. I guess they threw it in there for the boys in the audience wink.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
