Well that was an experience....

So, I just got home from the midnight showing of New Moon.  It was CRAZY.  Let me tell you.  I took a teen girl from church (Jessica) with me.  She ordered the tickets on line a few weeks ago - good thing, since all the theaters in our area were sold out by this morning.  The particular theater we went to was in a close by "rich" town.  The movie was showing in 6 of their theaters!  They were all full of, you guessed it, mostly teen girls.  At midnight.  On a school night.  Did I say crazy?  We got there around 10:30ish and there was a huge line already.  I had expected that.  I did see a couple of mom type persons there but only a few.  They started letting people in the theater around 11:15 P.M.  We got in, found seats, went to the bathroom (we didn't want to miss any of the movie once it started): then the movie started.  Yahoo.  Let me begin by saying I am not a fan of the first Twilight movie.  It is my opinion that books are always better than the movie but that movie was just horrible due to a combination of over dramatic acting and horrible makeup.  They took gorgeous people and made them weird.  (Just my opinion).  If I hadn't watched this movie with a crowd of teen girls I probably would have been bored to tears or just annoyed. was great.  If you remember when I was all gaga over the books - Edward is the vampire.  I loved him.  I am so over it.  He annoys me.  He made me fickle with all his melodrama.  He apparently did not have that effect on the teens.  Hahahaha.  When he was first on the screen I heard drool hit the floor.  And the first time Jacob took off his shirt - there were gasps.  I may have been one of them.  Gross since he is a 17 year old.  Seriously.  Then there was the gigglies.  The girls were laughing at everything.  Edward kissed Bellla - giggle, giggle.  Edward and Bella running through the forest - giggle giggle.  Bella's dad says something corny - giggle, giggle.  I laughed a lot.  It was a good time. 

So, here is my official review....It has been a while since I read the book so I don't really remember how it all went down but I am so sure the movie skipped most of the good stuff.  If you watched the movie and read the books please tell me how New Moon left the Victoria story line in the book.  They just dropped it in the movie.  If you are not a big Twilight series fan I am pretty sure you will hate this movie because it is pretty bad.  The actors are not good.  The makeup is just freakish.  There isn't really any development of the story.  And the ending....It ended so abruptly.  Again, there were gasps and shrieks of horror by the crowd.  How could they????  Now we have to wait until June 30 to see what happens....  I'll be there.  I wonder if you can order tickets already?

This is the line to get in.  It is from my phone so it isn't that great - plus it was raining and dark.

This is the parking lot at 2:30 A.M., when we were leaving!

I hated Twilight as a movie. They left out sooo much stuff plus they got things wrong that I thought were important. I'm not really all that excited to go see New Moon. Well, except to see Jacob without a shirt! If it makes you feel better he will be 18 in February! LOL

i had so much fun. thanks for taking me!! :) i know this was so crazy
"do you know we have to get up for school in like 5hrs??" thats what all the teen girls were saying in the bathroom when it was over.
maybe the twilight would have been better in theaters than watching it at home.
i think Victoria was after Bella. I dont think they ever showed her, but i could be wrong.
when Edward was first on the screen i couldn't eat my snacks.
do u want to go to Eclipse?? if we do we could invite more people.
i just realized i really don't remember most of the stuff from Eclipse.
