Okay, so it was really Tuesday, but I've been singing the song (I love you Simon LeBon) since I decided to go see New Moon. :) I swear I think I'm one of the last females on the planet to actually see New Moon. My neighbor and I went and we LOVED it. LOVED. So. Much. Better. Than. Twilight. It's amazing what a difference the budget can make. The SFX were waaaaaaaaay better and the acting was even up a notch.
I feel rather sorry for Esme, Emmet and Rosalie, who didn't get much screen time. And Jasper. Oh, Jasper. He looks so crazy I just can't help but laugh when he's on screen. It's a tragedy too because Jackson Rathbone (isn't that the coolest name?) is such a cutie pie. I think it's the hair in Twilight. I can live with the crazy eyes, but the crazy hair is too much.
Carlisle also didn't get enough screen time. Carlisle is one one my favorite characters in the entire series and Peter Fancinelli portrays him wonderfully. He so warm and kind. It doesn't hurt that Peter Fancinelli is some serious eye candy. I like him even better with his own natural dark hair. PLUS, he's the same age as me.
Once again Billy Burke did a fabulous job portraying Charlie Swan. He looks a bit like Billy Bob Thornton, which I find disturbing, but I can look past that. I'm gracious like that.
Bella still irritated me. She's so whiney and moody my eyes were spinning around in my head like cherries in a slot machine. OMG, you've got 2 gorgeous guys who want you and all you can do is wah, wah, wah. Oh, oh, oh. Poor me. What shall I do? Shut it. Of course some of this may come from my dislike of Kristen Stewart. I think she does a good job on screen, portraying Bella and all her whiney-ness, but she's just such a tool IRL (at least from everything I've read or seen of her). It seems like she does her best to alienate fans and look as craptastic as possible at all times.
I know everyone was all googly-eyed for Jacob (there were a few cat calls at our showing), but he will forever be Shark Boy to me and I just can't find that hot. It's way too creepy to me. I do appreciate the amount of work he did to get that body, but I just can't have lascivious thoughts about Shark Boy. He did a good job on screen, but he's not the one for me.
And finally to Edward. My Edward. I don't understand why they insist on making my poor, sweet,
lickable utterly gorgeous Edward look like such a dork. He's not a dork in the books, but on screen they portray him that way (I blame it on the cinematography and all the slo-mo). I really liked how they handled Bella hearing Edward when she did something dangerous.
Now Edward is....delicious. Give me a slim pale boy any day over a tanned muscled tween. It does helps that I'm not old enough to be his mother. Granted I'd have been a teenage mother if Jacob was my son, but still the possibility exists. And that's just icky. Oh, but Edward. Le sigh. I am NOT old enough to be his mother, so just call me Cougar. He can bite me anytime. Plus, he drives a Volvo, and we all know that Volvo drivers are super cool.
In summary: Movie good. Vampires hot. Werewolves...eh. Edward...mmmmmmmmmmmm.
