New Moon

On Saturday I caved. I hadn't planned on seeing New Moon since I didn't think Twilight was particularly good. But my curiosity got the better of me so I ended up seeing New Moon with a couple of friends.

My thoughts? I was planning on writing a review, but I read Eric Snider's review instead and found that I agree with him 100% and he says it so much better than I ever could. The only thing that Eric doesn't mention, possibly (and hopefully) because he doesn't feel this way, is that seeing Taylor Lautner (Jacob) run around in half of the movie without a shirt makes the movie worthwhile. No, I'm not 17 or a 40-year-old bored housewife who reads the Twilight series like it's the Bible; but I do have eyes, and let's face it–tan and toned looks good no matter what.

I also agree with Eric that his rejected Twilight and New Moon screenplays are more entertaining than either of the movies so if you need a good laugh, check them out. My friend thought acting these out with sock puppets would be fun, so there's a good idea for Family Home Evening.
