My Thoughts!

Speen and I went and saw New Moon last night. His suggestion, which was impressive. Probably cause we rented Twilight a couple of weeks ago and so we were kind of in the mindset.

Anyway, the movie surprised me. I didn't love the books until book 4. I thought the first three were a little slow. And I didn't like Jacob in the books, I thought he was annoying. I was surprised at how much I absolutely loved him in the movie last night. He was so charming, enduring, and real. I felt a way stronger connection between him and Bella than Bella and Edward. At the very end of the movie when Edward said "Marry Me" I didn't really feel any passion when he said it. Maybe because he's "cold" and all that, but I felt when Jacob was begging her not to go with Alice, I felt way more passion and love from him.

I also thought the movie was extremely well made. Trust me, vampires and werewolves aren't really my thing (I never liked Harry Potter), but I thought they did such a great job with the transformations and making everything extremely believable. If you are on the fence of whether or not to go, I would definitely say go, I was pleasantly surprised.

What did you think?


And I gotta say, one of my favorite parts of the movie was seeing the preview for this. It looks amazing. Spence and I both shed a tear during the preview!


(Letters to Juliet)

loved it! went and saw it this morning. everything about it was much better than the first movie. and i actually liked jacob in the book, but i have to agree with you, before seeing it i wasn't sure if i was team jacob or edward still. and now i'm leaning toward team jacob b/c i totally agree with you on the passion jacob has for bella, he is just so sweet. and his chiseled abdomen puts edward's to shame, too!

LOVE LOVE LOVED it!! Can't wait to see it again. I agree that Jacob did an amazing job! I have never hated Jacob in the books like some people do but he really bugs me at certain times. I still love him at times in the book too and feel sorry for him and I think Taylor Lautner really did a great job. I love Edward through and through though! I thought the preview for the Juliet movie looked really cute too! I'm excited for that one which surprised me cause that girl really bugged me in Mama Mia.

Oh and I forgot to tell you that I always put Beckett to sleep in his swing for the first half of the night and then I put him in this thing called a snuggle nest that can go in your bed or you can put it in their crib and it has an incline at the top of it. I think it really helps him. Good luck with Tallie!

I didn't see the preview for Letters to Juliet, I'll have to check it out! And I did love New Moon too. I am definitely an Edward fan from the books, but you're right, Jacob is not too shabby in the movie! Yum.

Okay so first off, I have pretty much always been a Jacob fan. Their relationship is more real to me. Edward is a drug to her, it is too obsessive and unnatural to me. Bella is a little too whinny for me as well. So needless to say, I loved the show. Jacob's muscles were an added bonus! I thought the movie was overall just better. The quality!
I will say that when Bella and Edward kissed on her birthday, at the truck, the moaning was so awkward for me. I cringed! But it was fun and was worth seeing!
Happy Thanksgiving!

I agree with you, I ADORE Jacob, too!! He is not only so much better for her, he is incredibly hot. (It had to be said, hahaha)
