I like my men immortal and cold...

That's right fans, I was priveledge to see the movie at a PRE SHOWING. Last night at 7!!! I must admit that I loved the books, loved Edward, loved everything about them. Then I went online and saw who was cast and was so disappointed. Needless to say my expectations for the movie were extremely LOW.

We loaded in our vehicles, went out to dinner (Texas Road House), and then headed to Jordan Commons. It was packed. There were 3 pre showings last night. One was a PROM themed showing. You would have been blown away by everyone dressed to the nines. It was crAzY. When entering the theatre we had our bags searched, we were scanned with metal detectors and if you had your camera you were escorted out to return it to your car. CRaZy. I had my camera, I didn't drive, it was cold, I am stubborn, so I threw my batteries in the trash so that I wouldn't have to do the stupid song and dance for security. Once in (sigh), we were given lanyards. When everyone was seated they did a HUGE prize giveaway. Book marks, gift cards (I won a gift card... thanks Gina), candy, etc. If your lanyard said EDWARD you received a sparkling blanket, ICE gum, and glitter body spray. If your lanyard said BELLA you received a red blanket and Bella perfume. If youR lanyard said JACOB you received a brown fuzzy blanket and Frebreeze Meadow spray.


Now for the movie... lights dimmed - the audence went screaming mad. Charlie was PERFECT, Jacob was darling but has a weird shaped nose, Bella was PERFECT, Jasper was icky, Alice was PERFECT, Rosalie was PERFECT (so mean), Carlisle was PERFECT (except for the 1st scene... his make-up was horrible... too caked on). Edward grew on me and by the end of the night I wanted the lady behind me's tee 'save gas, ride a VAMPIRE'. I loved the movie, I was not disappointed and I think it is because I expected NOTHING.

Ladies... how was that first kiss? AMAZING!
Because I threw the batteries to my camera away I wasn't able to get any pictures of my sweet friends. Hopefully they will send some to me so that I can post them. Until the next movie (which they have already started filming)...

And enter Debbie Downer...Hi! I did not love this movie. I thought Bella was great. Edward grew on me. I didn't really like anyone else. And Jacob? Come on. That little boy was definately not Jacob. Why did they choose all those dark skinned/dark haired actors and try to turn them into blonde/fair skinned characters. The makeup was horrible. I really didn't think they spent enough money making this movie. The special effects weren't so special. HOWEVER...I still think everyone has to go see it. You just have to. If you read the book and loved it you must. Sorry for the rant:)

I saw it last night at midnight and thought it was "so so". Very low budget and some bad bad actors. The book is MUCH better, didn't you think?

I had a blast at the pre-showing, even though I only won a bookmark! I am not a big Edward fan, but by the time the movie ended, he had grown on me. I had a great time and cannot wait for the second one to come out....especially because Jacob will have a big part since Edward disappears.

I have to say "AMEN" Jessica. I felt the EXACT same way about the casting, and had horrible feelings about the movie. I fell in love with the Edward choice by the end, and seriously had goose bumps when he kissed her neck at the end. Your review could have come directly out of my mouth. I should copy and paste since you put it so perfectly! I might even link eveyone to you... " I loved it- See Jessica's blog for my thoughts...

I took Arrie and 2 of her friends to the 12:20 am showing. I think it was worth it. It was really fun seeing it with 3 silly teenagers.

I felt exactly as you did about the movie. It makes me want to read the first book over again. I saw this movie with Jon and Kaia, Friday night then we went back to my house where Kaia's water broke in my kitchen. I told her it was all because of Edward.

Amen. I didn't go until Saturday afternoon, but I enjoyed it as well. There is something about Jacob that just didn't sit right with me. And Carlisle, when he comes into the room, UGGGGGGHHHHH! He looked wrong. But throughout the movie his makeup was much better. As for Jasper, well, the only thing I could picture was a blonde Edward Scissorhands, that look on his face was horrible. The movie itself was good, I don't consider it a must have or a must see again, though.

Ummmm, YEA! I felt like I was 15 again watching that first kiss. It was the best part of the whole movie. I'm with Darci on this one.

Elise said...

You guys are really into this really DUMB movie!!! I would never want to watch something like that. Oh vampire I love you now I dont at all, kissy kissy.

I liked the books but wasn't a freak about them. I only read them once. I liked the movie. I had Low expectations as well. I am with you though Carlisle's makeup in the first scene was awful. I only wish I had a tissue to wipe it off for him.

I agree w/you on everything. Down to Jacob's nose. Too funny. Sometimes it's just nice to see an exciting love story...especially for us married gals.
