I’m going to try and make this as coherent as possible. I’ve had four hours of sleep.
I saw the midnight release of New Moon last night and WOW! Let me start from the beginning. We arrived at the theater at 9:30 and found out that they weren’t letting people in until 11:20! They never do that at our theater. We had to stay outside in the freezing cold! If only I had Jacob then. Luckily we were some of the first people in line. They started letting us in finally but they looped the line around so we could go in a side door. Here was the problem that almost made me kill someone. I bought our tickets online. You have to take printed tickets to the front desk to be scanned. We had to lose our place in line! I was irate! Thankfully we got it all worked out and still got good seats. Now on to the good stuff! I felt like a little kid again! Midnight premieres always do that to me. I get so giddy! The opening New Moon graphic had me almost bouncing in my seat!
I can understand why some people were disappointed or disliked the Twilight movie. I myself enjoyed it but I can see the flaws in it. If there are people out there that didn’t or don’t like New Moon, I will never understand it. It was simply amazing. It was everything I wanted it to be x 1000. I’m really trying to not make this review a bunch of OMG’s and WOW’S but Chris Weitz and the cast are making that awfully hard on me.
All of the actors were superb. Kristin Stewart improved in this movie immensely. I’m not sure if she was really doing anything that different but she actually felt like Bella to me in this movie. Robert Pattinson was…Robert Pattinson. He was brooding and dark but sweet at the same time. Taylor Launter was…..phenomenal!
Phenomenal! That’s the only word to explain him. He really showed all those people that had doubts about him. His transformation from Best Friend Jacob to Werewolf Jacob was incredible. I read a quote from him in EW that said something like “Going to the gym was only part of it. I really studied the books.” It most definitely paid off. His acting is spot on. He is the most talented of the three in my opinion.
Last year when they announced that they were definitely making New Moon and Eclipse into movies my first concern was the wolves. Werewolves are always so laughable in movies. My concerns were unfounded. They were awesome! That’s the only word for them. The first time I saw them, even though I had saw them in countless previews, almost took my breath away. I was also worried that they wouldn’t look big enough. They did! The fight scenes were gorgeous. The wolf sounds alone were incredible.
New Moon stayed amazingly true to the book. I’m pretty sleepy but I can only think of one actual whole scene that they changed and it made prefect sense. Sure they added some more action in at the end but I’m not complaining! I thoroughly enjoyed that action. I was wondering how they make us understand how devastated Bella was. I won’t tell you how they did it but it was genius! All in all I can honestly say that I thought this movie was perfect. I don’t think they could have done a better job. If you were skeptical because you didn’t like the first movie, go see this one! I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
I so very very happy that I’m going to see it again today with my sister. I don’t think I could have made it through the day without seeing it again. I might have to drag my husband again tomorrow. Please allow me just a moment of fangirliness. OMG! OME! OMJ! New Moon was amazing!!!! I can’t wait for Eclipse!!!! OMG! Sorry I had to get that out of my system.
GO see New Moon! Please do it for me!
