New Moon = Excellent

Guess what I saw this evening?

The restaurant adjacent to the theater offered some tasty Twilight specials.

Fortunately, me and Hil arrived early because the place was packed! (Just kidding, it was a ghost town. I guess not even a Twilight movie can bring out a crowd on a Monday night.)

New Moon is excellent. It is ten times better than the first Twilight movie ... the acting is better, the dialogue is better, the pace is better, the makeup is better ... it's all good. Before I saw the movie I wasn't sure Taylor Lautner was right for the role of Jacob, but as it turned out he was perfect and had great chemistry with Kristen Stewart. The director did an outstanding job bringing the story to life and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Can't wait to see it again!

I was surprised at how empty it was. Glad to hear it was better than the first because I wasn't all that impressed w/#1. Daughter 1 saw it in a sold out theater on Sat. Other daughter is seeing it tonight!

I knew it~I knew it~I knew it...I knew your blog today would be about New Moon! I am so glad you loved it so much. I fell in love with Jacob in the book and know I will love his character in the movie. Yes, definitely let's go on the 13th. A must! I was going to go see it by myself in GV but won't. Much more fun to see it together with you. A perfect way to celebrate the Holidays! And, of course, we must go out and eat!

Have a perfectly silly Tuesday!

I think my blogroll is playing tricks on me. I did not even see that you had posted this until just now.

Glad you enjoyed the movie. I'm sure I'll see it at some point since my daughter is a fan. But she didn't even go to see it in the theatre yet, so probably on DVD.
