I am in a dream world today… partially because I got home from the midnight screening of New Moon at 2:30 a.m., and I’m exhausted. But also because my mind is full of lovely New Moon images!
It was much, much better than Twilight. There were cheesy parts (Bella and Edward running through the forest in very cheesy costumes), of course, but isn’t that true of all romances? I had been worried about the film, because honestly, of the series, New Moon and Eclipse are my least favorite books. New Moon because Edward leaves, and hello? I’m totally Team Edward. And Eclipse because nothing really happens except emotional turmoil. But the film captured Bella’s depression and worry and defeat so well. And of course, who doesn’t love Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black? I mean, come on.
Anyway, I’m sure I’ll be back at the movies this weekend to watch it again (hopefully sans screaming fans), and I’ll be listening to the soundtrack on repeat for a while. And waiting, waiting for Eclipse to be released next year. It’s so much fun… I haven’t been this excited about films since the Lord of the Rings series. (Yes, it’s official, I’m a dweeb.) 🙂
Happy Friday, everyone!
