New Moon Last Night

UGH....we got home so late yesterday and had to get up at 4:15 am to get ready for "the show" today, that we couldn't really post anything on here. So here goes.....

Our "before" picture.

New Moon was incredible! I don't want to give away too much, but I wanted to say something about the movie. If you are worried about "spoilers" then stop now, because I can't guarantee I won't spill too much. Luckily you have all read the book, so nothing is a complete surprise.

The BEST part of watching New Moon last night was that Stephenie Meyer came to watch it with us. When they introduced her, she said this was the first time she was seeing the complete movie. She sat 5 rows in front of us. How cool!!!!!! We were p.o'd cause we almost sat in that row where Stephenie sat, but then we spotted 2 seats by themselves at the very top and grabbed those.

Anyway, New Moon the movie was very close to the book. You know how you sooooo miss Edward while you are reading New Moon and cannot wait for him to come back? Well, you totally miss him in the movie too. The same feeling comes across on film. I really thought I would cry during the break up scene, but I guess after seeing it so many times on the promos, I've become desensitized. I'll tell you when I almost cried.....depressed Bella. Kristen did such a fantastic job. It was so sad. She is amazing. Chris Weitz did a really great job of getting Bella's thoughts a feelings across that you would normally only get by reading the book. I don't want to say how, but you will love how he does it.

Rob of course looked gorgeous....sigh. You've seen the part in the Volvo commercial where he is walking toward Bella in the school parking lot? The whole audience did a collective "sigh". He looked so HOT! Again, Rob was beautiful, but just not enough of him. That's just the way the book goes. Taylor was smoking.....literally. Whenever he is standing in the rain, steam is rising off of his 108 degree body. It was so cool. And yes, everyone lost it when he took his shirt off. He is easy on the eyes :)

There is so much more that I want to say, but I don't want to give it all away. I will say that I think Chris Weitz did a great job with New Moon. I thought Catherine Hardwicke changed too many things in Twilight, but Chris did not. There were a few things, of course, that had to be left out to fit a book into a 2 hour movie, but it was stuff you really don't miss at all. He got all of the most important stuff. I can't wait to go see it again. I will not tell you how the movie ends.....I mean I think you have idea, but you will be surprised....that's all I will say.

Here are some videos of me and Barb driving home last night. These videos are rated PG-13 for language (I just thought I'd give you a heads up! LOL)

Barb's video review of New Moon:

Yes....before you say anything, we are idiots!!!!! LOL
