this one didn't suck as bad as the other two!!!!!!!!!!
and i'm not kidding! i mean.. normally, the girls and i are in the theatre laughing because the acting is SO hard to watch... and the makeup is SO ridiculous looking.. and bella is SO annoyingly whiny (among other things).
but at last nights midnight eclipse viewing.... THERE WAS NO MAKING FUN OF LAUGHTER DURING THE MOVIE!!!!! i don't think at all. (okay maybe a little at times cause sometimes the acting.. ugh)
i really have to say that this movie was better than all the other movies in almost every way possible. from the moment the movie started, i wasn't sure if we were watching a preview for a new movie coming out, or if our movie had started. and after that scene completed, i already felt like i was watching a whole new series. i turned to my gf sandi and said "um.. that single scene was just better than both the other movies put together."
in all honesty, i think we have the director of this movie to thank. so david slade, whoever the hell you are, THANK YOU. you made this movie watchable. you made it enjoyable. and you made it better than the other two in every way possible.
the makeup on the vampires was a thousand times better than the other ones. they didn't look like freaks in clown makeup. rosalie actually LOOKED like the gorgeous girl she's supposed to be. her hair looked so much better (and those of you who read the books and watched the other 2 movies know what i'm talking about here) in this movie.. more natural. the acting was bearable to watch. there were really good scenes where the actors got to really use their acting ability and it didn't make me want to stab them! this is progress people!!! the way the movie was shot and directed flowed better... it felt better... everything worked and went well together. all the characters got to be more than just background characters- and it made the entire movie more interesting.
now this isn't going to win any academy awards or anything. all i'm saying is that this one made me feel like we were watching an entirely new movie, with actors who flowed more naturally, acted better, and simply WORKED this time around. it made me wish we could go back to the first one and start over- because i feel like this movie has made such a huge difference. this movie felt like a "real" movie... where the other ones felt like (as my gf sandi put it) student films.
cause this one totally didn't suck as bad as the other 2. and well, that's excitable!!!!! that and the fact that we made new friends in line!!!! HI DRIA! HI JAMES! HI LATANYA!!!! (i have also now named my booty latanya. you're welcome)
