Twilight Tuesday

Amazing isn’t even the right word for it. Beyond amazing doesn’t describe it well enough either. Saturday I spent the afternoon and evening watching New Moon. Twi-Whore and myself decided that we were brave enough to throw ourselves amongst the throngs of screaming fangirls and tweens to see New Moon twice in one day, because just once wouldn’t suffice. Our first showing was at 4:00 and I got there at 1:30 expecting to need to walk around the mall for a bit before getting in line. Boy was I wrong! A line had already formed and was only 4 people long, but join them I did! It didn’t take long for it to grow either. While in line I read a chapter of Tropic of Virgo, and listened to my iPod to pass the time. Twi-Whore showed up not long after and we waited for another hour before they let us in.

The squeeing began when the previews rolled, then subdued a bit (for us anyways). And when we were cockblocked with an extra preview I almost got mad till I realised it was for Remember Me! We squeed so loud and nearly hyperventilated, and the ladies next to us gave us the stink eye. Finally it started. Twi-Whore and I held hands through probably 3/4 of the movie, just because we were so excited! It was ridiculous and silly and my hand cramped and she cut the circulation off of my fingers, and I made her ring gouge her thumb, but we were just so crazed. 

I can’t say enough good things about the movie. The effects, the acting, the direction, the screen play. They were all amazing, and put together with the cast, I just don’t have words to describe it. We got to see Jasper and Emmett a bit more this time which was so nice ’cause I heart them hard, and Charlie. I loved Charlie in this! Billy Burke was exceptional! His parts were funny and touching and just all around great.

I’m so glad we didn’t see Stutter Bella this time, and Smell the Fart Rob. Taylor was exceptional, and played his role extremely well. I walked in expecting to leave feeling extremely angry with Edward but surprisingly wasn’t. It ended up being Bella I was mad at, for hurting Jacob so badly. And can I just say I loved the cliff hanger ending? We all know what happens in the end anyways, and if you haven’t read the books shame on you you deserve to not know how it turns out till you see Eclipse.

After the first movie ended we went for dinner at Pita Pit, and the guy working made fun of us a bit for going twice and tried to rub it in that he went the night before. Whatever, I’m a good Twi-friend and waited. That says a lot about me, I think. After dinner we went back to the mall and were going to browse for a bit, but I had a feeling there would be a line up so we headed back to the theater thankfully to stand in line. I was right, there was already a huge line forming, with about 30 or so people ahead of us. So we stood there for another 2 1/2 hours. The line ended up forming a huge loop around the inside of the mall, and we later learned it had sold out. We didn’t hold hands that time but were still just as excited to see it start (and for the Remember Me trailer). All in all we had a great day! And the effect of seeing it twice in the same day was a definite plus! We caught things we had missed the first time, and were able to absorb more without judgement. I can’t wait to see it for a third time, and a fourth, and a fifth….


Twilight Tuesday

As I was reading Twitarded the other day I came across this meme. I thought, what the Hale, I’m going to do it even if I’m not tagged, and it would be a fun Twi Tues.

1) What is the craziest/most stupid thing you’ve ever done (that you would be willing to share!)? One thing? Going to a birthday party, getting high and dressing up like hookers and trying to get in a bar when I was 16.

2) One my personal favorite games: Fuck, Marry, Kill. With the Twilight cast. Fuck – Edward. Kill – It’s a toss-up between three, Mike Newton, Jessica Stanley and Lauren Mallory. Marry – Jacob. Especially after reading New Moon recently, I’ve fallen back in love with him. Sigh.

3) What is your favorite band/type of music? I do love pop music but my favourite band would have to be the Killers.

4) What is your favorite movie besides Twilight? Dare I hope for New Moon? Time Traveller’s Wife at the moment.

5) Do you RL life family/friends know you’re addicted to Twilight? A blogger? My husband and SIL’s know, and of course Twi-Whore. But other than them I don’t think so. My mom and some friends know I blog I think though.

6) How many hours a week do you spend doing Twi related things? You know, blogging, looking at pictures of the cast, reading fan fiction, etc. Maybe a few hours? It’s hard to say, I’ve never really thought about it. Oh wait that includes reading. Does that include reading? Then I’d have to up the hours to a lot!

7) Any random fact you might want to share. Big or small, it doesn’t matter. Random fact hey? I honestly didn’t like Twilight the first time I read it. I actually didn’t even want to read the second book because of it! Thankfully I soldiered on because New Moon is what made me fall in love with the series!

Twilight Tuesday

In anticipation of the movie, I’m reading New Moon again, for the third time. I am extremely excited for this one to come out, especially because my boyfriend Jacob is in the majority of the film. As I’m reading it though, I’m hoping for some differences from Twilight. One – I hope we don’t see RPattz’s “smell the fart” acting like we did so often in Twilight. As much as I love him, his pained expression was just too often shown. Two – The cheesy special effects of the Vamps, like running, jumping and such. It looked like bad 80’s movie effects. Three and Four – Jessica Stanley and Mike Newton. Please don’t let them be in the movie that much. Other than the scenes at the theaters in Port Angeles first with Jessica, then with Jacob and Mike later, and maybe a scene or two at Mike’s store, I think they can basically cut them out of the movie all together. That being said, I’ve got my ticket to paradise, and that paradise includes a certain werewolf and a very sexy vampire.
