While we were waiting outside the theater to go in, we met up with some teenie boppers. The girls were so excited about the movie, that it was oozing from them. Heath played up to it. He said "Aren't you sooooo excited to see this movie?"
The girls all smiled and said something like "Oh my gosh!! I've seen it, like, twice already. It is sooooo good!"
Heath: "The books are so great, aren't they? I mean...so cool. So who do you want Bella to end up with more? Edward or Jacob?"
Girls: "Oh, totally Edward!"
This went on for a little bit and I was trying not to laugh. It was so funny.
When we got in the theater, and the previews finished...the movie was about to start. I nudged Heath and dared him to, when the movie started, to stand up and start screaming for Edward. I don't think there were any other men there... It wasn't a packed theater, but we could hear all the teenagers behind us.
So, when it started, I hear Heath say with a major swooning voice: "Oh, Edward!" I don't know how many people heard him, but I thought it was pretty funny.
Then, after the movie (I'll talk about that in a minute...) the clean-up guys came in to get the room ready for the next showing, and he said to one guy "Dude, you totally missed the best movie ever! It was so great!" Then he gave him a big thumbs up and held it, with a huge smile on his face. I don't think the cleanup guy was very much interested in the movie.
Sometimes, my husband can be pretty funny. I loved it.
Ok, so the movie. Here are my quick thoughts for those of you who haven't seen it.
-Jasper's character was totally terrible. I mean...so bad. Just terrible.
-The actor who played Carlisle was awful. I think he was trying to ooze beauty and failed miserably. Also, he was really overdone with the makeup.
-Many special effects were severely lacking in quality and realism.
-I loved Victoria. I think they got her spot on. James did a great job too.
-The movie wasn't terrible. Just underfunded, I think. It could have been so much better.
-All the actors portraying high school students need to go take more acting classes.
-So, Heath liked it pretty well. I went into it with low expectations, and just enjoyed the movie for what it was.
-I hope future movies will be much much better.
