New Moon - Finally!

New Moon was amazing!

I finally got to see it tonight, and it was worth the wait.  I went all the way ... big popcorn (okay, a small, but it was still a giant bag for one person), big Coke Zero (which I regretted near the end of the movie, but I was NOT leaving the theater for a bathroom break) - the whole theater shtick! 

I completely loved New Moon.  I didn't like the first Twilight movie nearly this much... I thought it was good and enjoyed seeing the story come to life, but I thought the book easily topped the movie.  However, with the new director, great CGI, and some new additions to the cast, I absolutely loved New Moon.  I think it did a great job of representing the story, and I actually thought the movie did a better job of showing an understanding of Bella's depression, how the relationship between Jacob and Bella developed, and I loved the way they used the non-deliverable emails to Alice to narrate Bella's thoughts.  Now, I'm rereading Eclipse in anticipation of June!

I really want to go see it again ... wonder if I can convince Saunders to take me?

I agree wholeheartedly. I was planning to make Billy take me to see it again this week, but now I want him to take me to see Precious intead (for which he broke out in hives).
