Now…onto the movie.

Blurb from IMDB:

As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob

So, you had to know we’d review this one, right? It’s the latest craze. We quick saw it before I left for England so we could review it on CSO for ya!

My Review:

Oh boy. This breaks my heart to say, but I was somewhat disappointed.

I’m sorry. Really. I am a total Twilight fan, you know that. But, what the heck was up with all the corny wigs? Really. Even Bella Swan. . . looked like her hair was a wig. And Victoria? Ugh, first they have a different actress playing the part, but the hair is just too far gone. . . The worst, though, was Jasper. Why can’t he just have normal hair? His scene was just…well…stiff.

Total bummer.

I liked how they did the back story into the tribe and the wicked-awesome fighting scenes. Nice CG. Loved the wolves. Edward still looked constipated pretty much the entire movie which totally bummed me out. You know who I really liked, ALICE. Yep, she was wicked-awesome this one. Despite the wig….LOL.

Overall, I have to rate it pretty high still because the story was pretty true to the book and, well, I just really love Twilight.  It’s kinda like the books, I was able to overlook the over writing (come on, the books were WAY longer than they needed to be) because I was so invested in the characters. To me, that’s the most important thing while reading.

My rating:

4 tickets — See it and share it with a few friends

Okay, so what’d you think of the movie?

Now run on over to KM Wilsher’s blog and see what she thinks of it!

Musical Monday

Hi. Adrean here. Lynn writes about me and Lexi in The Mark of the Heir.

I’m glad to be here, but I think I’d rather be hopping around the globe like Lynn. She checked in with us all over the weekend and said she’s having a blast over in England. Paris is the next stop and she’s so excited.

~~~

I’m not much into country music, either, but ever since my stint in juvie, I’ve kinda been into it. The guards pretty much controlled everything, including what music could be played at what time.

I guess one of the guards had a thing for country….You’d think I’d hate it since I heard it mostly while in jail.

The first year out I hated it, but then I came around a bit. And this Lady Antebellum group is actually pretty good.

So, here you go. Enjoy Stars Tonight . . . and don’t forget to get your contest entry in. Click here for details.

See ya WEDNESDAY. I hear Lynn is making a visit on the blog tomorrow to go over the movie ECLIPSE in Cinema Sound Off. So stay tuned.

Meet-Cute

HI. Mandy here.

Boy, Rachel’s post from yesterday got me thinking, you know? The whole dating thing. What attracts people to each other.

In my case, I usually repel guys. That tends to happen when you can potentially freeze their lips off if you kiss them.

Yep. I’m lucky to have a wicked-crazy power. Freezing things I touch. Oh, and not to mention, I can lift a car over my head.

You’d think that would leave me pretty muscular, right?

So NOT the case. I’m impressively wimpy looking, actually. So that doesn’t help with the trying to find a boyfriend thing.

Needless to say, I usually keep to myself. It doesn’t help much that I have these freaks from The Center trying to find me so they can dissect me to figure out why I can do what I can do.

Enough about that.

I thought it’d be fun to talk MOVIES today.

It’s called the “meet-cute” when the situation/circumstances that the couple is thrown together that will span the movie.

Like, in Twilight. The first time Bella sees Edward. It’s in the lunch room. But their meeting was at the class, right? He totally freaks on her, doesn’t say a word, but still, they meet.

I like when they finally talk much better. His eyes are shimmering, and he’s asking her about the weather.

Oh, and not to mention when he stops the car from slamming into her.

But enough from me.

What’s YOUR favorite meet-cute between some movie characters??

OH, and I have to ask, did you go see ECLIPSE?  Did it rock? Haven’t seen it yet. I know, I’m lame.

Musical Monday

So, I watched New Moon again this weekend.

I needed some time to relax after a long week of work, so I vegged out, watched the movie for the umteenth time, and rested up.

It was perfect.

I had to Google this song, Possibility, by Lykke Li to check it out. The music in the Twilight series isn’t really my style, but a couple caught my attention.

It’s so sad sounding, though. But then again, the Twilight movies are filled with emotional turmoil, right? LOL.

What is your idea of the perfect way to relax?

Oh, and are you getting ready for the June 30th premier of Eclipse?
