Eclipse!

I did it again! Went to the midnight showing of a Twilight movie. With the same friend even!

This time we met for dinner first and harassed convinced another friend to meet up with us. Even though she completely refused to attend the movie with us. Courtney apparently has something against my Edward! Can you believe it?

Dinner included a couple of drinks for each of us. And was followed up with me convincing both Kait and Courtney that Starbucks really wasn't that far and we could totally walk for coffee. Ummm yeah, it was a lot farther than I thought. Not that we could have driven right then anyways after a couple of really strong martinis. Many many blocks later, we had our lattes and were headed back to the theatre.

Along the way I forced both friends to take more than a few photos with me. Courtney thought it was hilarious to do something silly in almost every photo, something I didn't get the full effect of until I loaded them onto my laptop today.


Kait and I settled into the theatre and waited for the show to begin after Courtney headed home. I was so excited when the previews started. I have a slight obsession with movie trailers, it's one of my favorite parts of going to the movies. I now have to see Easy A, it looks absolutely freaking hilarious! I just watched the trailer again, and I really can't wait to see this one. There were a couple other good previews and finally the show began!

I LOVED Eclipse! Seriously it was that good. Sooooo much better than New Moon was. You might remember I was pretty disappointed after that one. If you don't, Kait definitely does because she had to ride home with me that night and I bitched the whole way about how they'd ruined it. This one was completely different. They did a really good job of sticking to the story and not going overboard. Plus they played down the pastiness of Edward which made him look so much better. It was just a million times better! Although this time I didn't reread the books before going, so maybe that helped. Either way it was good!

I am dying to see it again!

I watched it at midnight, too! I agree that this one was better than New Moon and that Edward looked better. (Team Edward!!) However, I reread the book this time (didn't in the past) and it did frustrate me when things were different or out of sequence from the book. And I kept thinking about how much they skipped. So maybe I won't reread Breaking Dawn. Okay, so now I have to go blog about Eclipse, lol.

I love movie trailers too. I will never get to a movie late because I will freak out if I miss the previews!
