Movie Monday

New Moon.

Yes, I watched it. I couldn’t help myself. It was on pay preview and I actually had to make no effort at all so I went ahead and watched it.

And I was surprised. It is not nearly as bad as I thought. Yes, they butchered the story. Yes, I still feel if I could just shake Kristen Stewart a little bit…she would be so much better as an actress. Just a little shake.

Robert Pattinson looks even paler and the dark under eye circles reminds me of Bill on True Blood. Oh, Bill.

Most irritating is the way Kristen and Robert deliver the ‘I love you’ lines, as a rushed sort of mutter. You are willing to die for one another, at least sound like you mean it.

I have to admit that I like Taylor Lautner much more this time than the last. He is improving…and those abs don’t hurt. I feel slightly dirty now.

I also love the rest of the Wolf Pack. Who could help it?

Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen (Lucian, what have they done to you?) were examples of perfect casting. This was actually the best part of the movie.

I would have to say overall, I enjoyed the movie and was not quite as angry afterwards as I was the first time.
Could I be mellowing?


  1. LOL! I'm so ready for True Blood to come back on TV!!

    The part I always laugh at in the movie is the way Bella and Edward are almost grunting when they kiss. LOL. So funny!! *grunt, grunt* LOL!!

    I would love the movie, regardless, because I'm just crazy like that. But I do feel this movie was a lot better than the first, though I love that one too!!

    And Jacob, I mean Taylor, I mean who cares, abs... sigh.... : )

  2. LOL, Kimberly. You sound so much like me.

  3. I can see Fanning and Sheen. The rest of it sounds dubious.

  4. Oh I'm going to get this from Netflix I can't wait! I thought the first one was horrible ;) I suppose I'll think the same of this one too. Must C though.

  5. I preferred New Moon as well.

    I thought all the ancilliary vampires were cool. It's a pity they don't get much of a role after this.

    Taylor Lautner is pure yum! And no longer jailbait :)

  6. Happy Tuesday!

    I just wanted to let you know I have an award for you over on my blog today. : )


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
