I'm going to be completely honest here. Gotta get this off my chest. Promise you won't think less of me?
I am absolutely beyond excited to see New Moon. Really I am. I am a Twilight fanatic. No doubts about it. I even reread the books, you know to prepare for the movie coming out this month. I wanted to make sure that I remembered every detail, every single one.
I'm kind of dreading the whole experience. The lines. The wait. The packed theatre. Mostly though, I'm just dreading the movie. It will be good. I know it will. And I love me some Robert Pattinson. But it's just not going to measure up. It can't possibly be as good as the book. They are going to leave things out. They are going to change things. Things that I love about the book.
Then I keep coming back to Twilight the movie vs Twilight the book. There really wasn't even much of a comparrison. The book kicked the movie's ass. It was pretty pathetic. The two really shouldn't even be compared to one another is was that big of a difference. Is New Moon the movie vs New Moon the book going to be the same thing?
There's this small part of me that wants to spare myself the disappointment. I look at the other movies opening this weekend and think maybe I'll just see one of those instead. Like The Blind Side. This one looks really good too. Maybe I should just buy a ticket for it instead. Avoid the crowds of New Moon and hold off what is sure to be a slight disappointment when compared to the book.
Then I watch a preview and I remember why I'm going to be there opening night in the theatre that is playing New Moon. Even if it's not as amazing as the book it's still going to be good. I'm still going to like it. Like it enough that I'll probably want to see it again. And if it's not and I don't, well at least I got to stare at this for two hours.
Oh Edward, take me now!
