I saw "New Moon" this afternoon.
(I refuse to call it "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" because that's a stupid name).
I have this to say about the movie: It. Was. Amazing.
It doesn't even compare to "Twilight" -- which if I'm being totally honest, now seems like a bit of a train wreck.
Chris Weitz, the director of "New Moon", should be very proud of the finished product.
The movie was beautiful.
And, surprisingly, the script stayed true to the book.
There was no Buttcrack Santa or "compost tea!" to be found. (Thank goodness for that).
Time and again I was shocked to hear Edward, Bella or another character saying THE EXACT THINGS that were written in the book.
Oh, and the werewolves!! [UM, SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK AND DON'T WANT TO KNOW ANY MORE].
Holy hairy scary werewolves.
When they first appeared on screen, coming out of the woods (and if you've seen the movie, you KNOW what scene I'm talking about)...I looked at my friend and said "Holy. F**K." Yep, that's right. It was THAT amazing. And that incredible. And well...wow.
I laughed. I cried. I was stunned.
All in all, it was amazing.
And I cannot wait to see it again Monday night.
And maybe Thursday night.
And several times after that.
[I suppose it's time to remove the "New Moon" ticker over there....and replace it with one for "Eclipse" ... June 30, 2010.]
