Because I Think I'm A Teenager Like That

Last night at book group, one of my friends said, "We've got an extra ticket. So how about it, huh?" So at midnight last night . . . .



The last movie opening I went to was one of the Pirates movies a couple of years ago. I vowed that I would never do it again as it was me and plantboy and 100 slutty pirate girls. (Their dates were just weird, not slutty.) Still, last night I found myself in a theatre crammed with screaming teenage goths. Some of whom were very slutty. Good times.

What about the papers you say? Oh, I just picked them up and delivered them on the way home from the movie. I'm going for nocturnal this week. It is really not working for me.

i think i'm going tomorrow night. what did you think? i really wonder if it will be any good at all.

Amy said...

I fortunately didn't get hooked on the books and the advertisements don't appeal to me at all! Was it worth the slutty goth girls?!

In response to your comment, I have also NOT spent the whole morning watching interviews with the actors and searching YouTube for clips from the movie. That would be silly.

Or rereading Midnight Sun.

And yeah, when they pulled back the shot and I realized she was wearing underwear, I was like "OH PLEASE!." But the actors couldn't hear me.

So I have just spent the last little bit going through your blog...I saw you post the link on Chris's facebook wall. I love the blogging world, so i thought I would check it out -- what a cute family! Fun to see what you have been up to. Loved the Aussie reference of whinging, because we have come to love and use that word.

Hope things are good -- BTW, you look totally different with long hair.

I just read the title and I KNEW what your post was going to be about. I went to see it last night. Houston is a bit more conservative I guess. Not many goths, but I think I counted 6 guys in a theatre that was sold out. Wow. I'm impressed Plantboy went.

I wish it was coming here but I don't think there is a big enough pull.

Plantboy definitely DID NOT go. I went with my book group buddies. In fact, that was the reason that I went. If I had not gone I would have had to either go myself or talk Plantboy into it. I think it is safe to say that dragging him to it would have ended my marriage.

I'm not sure I'll see it until it comes out on DVD, but it sounds like your experience was memorable, to say the least. :)

Forget about the movie...I'm impressed you delivered papers on the way home.

This is the 3rd blog about Twilight that I've read in the last 10 minutes. You didn't mention if you liked it or not...

I took my three oldest to see it on Monday afternoon.

I'm immensely thankful for matinee pricing. It would have hurt far more if I had to pay full price to sit through it.

Even my Twilight fan daughters couldn't control their laughter in certain parts. We were surrounded by some serious teen girls who never once broke their intent countenance to have a chuckle even when the movie was completely ridicuous.

PROS:
I loved the soundtrack. I loved the scenery. I loved the first half of the movie. I think Alice Cullen was completely adorable.

CONS:
Carlisle Cullen looked like he went to work with his Noxzema facial scrub on.
I also thought the flashback of him turning Edward looked vaguely Brokeback Mountain-ish to me. :)
Edward has suction cup lips as seen when he smooches Bella on the forehead in the hospital. Lauren couldn't stop giggling about it.
I'm STILL amused at the google page Bella pulls up showing "The Legend of The Slapping Beaver" and that they ate at a joint called The Bloated Toad.
Did we really have to have a 3 minute interlude of Bella and Edward laying in a meadow staring at each other? Weird.

I know a few people who have gone to see Twilight 3 or more times already. Voluntarily.
