I did it. Not only did I go see New Moon opening weekend, but I also saw it opening day. In fact I saw the first showing in theatres ever. That's right people I was one of those crazies at the 12:01am showing Thursday night/Friday morning. It was insane! The theatre that we went to sold out all ten theatres that they were playing it in. There was a little bit of a crowd.
Kait went with me, in fact it was her idea to go to the midnight show. Yay for Kait being as fanatic about Twilight as me! Of course being that staying up until all hours is something that we haven't done in a while, we also made a mandatory stop at Starbucks on the way to the theatre. It was a necessity to survive the night.
I'm not going to lie there were some crazies there. Not that surprising really when you think about the fact that you have to be a little bit insane to decide to go see a two hour movie that starts at midnight. In fact some of the people were so crazy that they were taking photos with this cardboard cutout of Edward, Bella, and Jacob...
I know, I know...it's just a cutout don't embarrass yourself people. There is no reason to be rubbing up against a piece of cardboard. I was just so embarrassed for them.
Oh wait, it looks like me and Kait were some of those crazies. Hello Edward! If only the picture wasn't so crappy.
Then it was time to head on in and enjoy the show. It was packed. We got so lucky and happened to score two seats in the center in the row behind the bar. Not too far forward and not too far back. Even better was that when I had to use the restroom (all THREE times, thank you Starbucks) all I had to do was hop the bar.
Now the movie. Hmmmm...what to say. I've got some mixed feelings on that one. I left the theatre furious. I'd just reread the books so everything was nice and fresh for me and every change that they made was just so freaking obvious. I'm sure it didn't help either that it was like 3am. Eeek! But the more that I think about it the more that I liked the movie. They really did do a great job covering all the key points of the book and not changing things up too much. I'm dying to see it again. I just know that it will be even better the second time. The first time that I watched Twilight after reading the books, I noticed all the differences and hated it. But everytime after that first time I liked it a little more and more. I finally stopping seeing all the differences and just focused on the movie. Now all I have to do is figure out when I can see it again!
