I made a deal with myself that I was permitted to watch New Moon yesterday as long as I wrote my paper today. Which I did! I mean, it still needs some work, but hell, I wrote a paper two whole days before it was due. Who would believe it was possible?
In any case, joy. The goddess is back.
New Moon was a million times better than Twilight. It was actually a relatively impressive rendition. And by that I mean that Taylor Lautner has better acting skills than Rob and Kristen put together. Yay Team Jacob. I'm a Team Jacob girl. Even though I think that real men sparkle.
The best part about New Moon was that it actually far surpassed the book. There's something about nightmares that can only really be conveyed onscreen. The depiction of Bella's sadness, her nightmares and how lonely she felt came across through the film much better than it had through the books. Although Bella's "Kill me," moment fell very flat. Kristen, Kristen, one day you will learn to be passionate about something.
In terms of the previews, I"m so seeing Remember Me! Rob Pattinson doing something other than crumpling cell phones in destructive rage is a fascinating prospect.
