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!
