For those of you that know me, you know that I am a lover of the Twilight Saga. Loved the books. Loved the first movie. LOVE New Moon!!
Tanner and I went to see it Saturday in KC and I was beyond excited to see it. I couldn't wait until I had another opportunity to see it in the theater. Today, I get that opportunity... with some of my mom friends! When we saw it in KC, the theater had a pretty even mix of young girls and older moms. I, in no way, felt out of place. In fact, I may have been one of the younger moms there.
I loved the movie. It had been such a long time since I'd read the book that I'd forgotten several of the details of the story, which was probably a good thing, that way I wasn't too critical of the things they did differently for the movie. I loved Mike and Jessica in the movie. They had some really cute, funny lines. Mike's character was a hoot and I loved the banter between him and Jacob. But let me say, throughout the book series, I was wholeheartedly on Team Edward. No swaying over to Team Jacob whatsoever. Even after Twilight came out in the theater, still my loyalty was for the vampire. Then I sat in the theater and watched Taylor Lautner portray Jacob... I do have to admit that my loyalty was swayed for a good hour and a half. Mercy. But then.... there was the last 30 seconds of the movie. Oh. My. Gosh. If ever there was a scene in a movie that screamed there would be more to follow, that, my friends, was it! I'm pretty sure my mouth hung open for a good 5 seconds before I realized where I was and that I was not Bella and Edward was not..... Well, you'll just have to watch it to really get it.
I'm off to see the love triangle on the big screen again. Can. Not. Wait!
