Here's how the day went down... One of my very bestest friends in the whole wide world, Tigerlillyrose, and I had a Girls Day Out on Sunday, and if I do say so myself, our day ROCKED!!
We started out with some margaritas...mmmm....margaritas...oh yeah, and lunch. Feeling as if I didn't have a care in the world (I assume she felt the same), we made a brief stop at the mall to check out washing machines as mine went tits up on Saturday. At this point in time, I really didn't give a shit about looking at washers, I just wanted to get to the fucking movie already. We did have a long conversation on the benefits of the spin cycle, though. There was mention of a 2 x 4, bolts in the wall, and a strap to hold you on...but in the end we decided that the spin cycle "O" is mostly hype. *sigh*
Aaannnd...off to the movie we went. I have never, ever seen that many people in the theater on a Sunday afternoon, ever. I am sooooooo glad I went ahead and bought the tickets online last week. My peace of mind was worth the extra three bucks.
I have to say, I was surprised at how many guys there were in the theater! There must have been A LOT of men getting some "Thank you for taking me to see New Moon" sex on Sunday afternoon, lemme tell ya! We sat in a little section where no one could sit by us...two seats all by themselves...because we didn't want to share our experience with anyone else. Yeah, we're selfish that way.
TwiWeasel and Tigerlillyrose at New Moon. Really. We're in there. Betcha wish you could be such a fucking great photograper too.
I let out my first squeak when I saw the fucking Summit logo. I’m not kidding. Tigerlillyrose either didn’t hear, or chose to ignore it…not sure which. There was a lot of eye rolling on her part, directed at me throughout the movie though.
I thought they did a really good job on sticking to the book…loved how they showed showing October, November, December. Had wondered how they would do that. I really liked the idea that she emails Alice all the time, too even though they are undeliverable. Otherwise, we might have missed a lot on what she was feeling.
OK, I know…get to the half naked men…W.O.W. I have to say...Jacob is HAWT!!!!! I haven't switched sides or anything, but OMG, he is some mighty fine eye candy!!! MMMM mmmm Good! Yowza! I lost count of how many times I groaned out loud when Jake was on the screen. But I was nowhere near as loud as the Team Jacob group down in front. When he took off his shirt…it was the most noise that I’ve ever heard in a darkened theater! (Aside from laughing in an appropriate place, that is.) Even I let out a small whoop (then giggled and blushed even though no one could see me.)
The humans were kick ass funny…and Charlie stole the scene every time. I LOVED his ladies man line, and his Porn Stache looks so much better this time around! (Right, Mama C?) The fight scene at the end was awesome although not quite true to the book, but it made for a good visual. I thought Kstew did a much better job with her stammering and blinking in this one, but she needs to take screaming lessons.
Hey, Kristen…give Jamie Lee Curtis a call…really.
I know, I know…I haven’t even mentioned Edward yet…because my heart is still up in my throat!! His groan during the kiss, and those pants *moan* oh those pants…waaaaaaaaay down low…treasure trail…sparkles…and when he says “you can go to hell…” it’s too much!
So yeah, um, I really liked the movie.
