Oh Edward! .....or Jacob

Yes, I was one of the crazy people that went to the midnight (12:20) showing. Here is my review with very small, if any spoilers. I give it 3 out of 5 stars. I was expecting more of it. I will admit, it didn't look as low budget at the first one, and the special effects weren't as awful.

In fact, I really liked the wolves. Some of the camera angles of them were a bit ridiculous, but over all, they were pretty good wolves. I really liked Jacob in this one, I was routing for him secretly, even though I've read the books and know what happens. I think he looked a lot better than Edward!

I hated hearing the screaming girls everytime Bella and Edward would kiss, or when the wolf pack would walk in to scene with their shirts off. Probably my favorite part of the teen girls though, was when Edward took his shirt off and had hair all down his chest and stomach, they all screamed "EWWW", that was awesome.

Overall, here is my rating. I LOVED the books. I read them right after Jarren was born and I couldn't do a whole lot because it was in the 6 weeks of recovery from my c-section. I couldn't put the books down. There is a lot of hype over these movies, a lot of people going crazy and a lot of promises that the next will be better than the first. I think because of those two things combined, I didn't like it as much as I could have. Everyone that I know, that hasn't read the books, really likes the movies. But I also have friends who have read the books and DO like the movies, saying it was exactly what they pictured in their head. Well it wasn't what I pictured, and I think that's why I didn't absolutely LOVE the movie(s). But it was a good movie overall, ignoring those facts.

(For Journal Purposes)
My new favorite things Jarren does:
  • He can count to 8 by himself, keeping the numbers in order, he does this almost all day long.
  • I LOVE to hear him say tickle. It comes out "tea-ckle", it's the cutest!
  • He says his nightly prayers, and my favorite part is when he says Jesus. He says it so well and I love it!
  • He loves to draw and he's pretty good at it! He concentrates very hard when he's doing it.
  • His new favorite game to play is "war" with Uno cards with his dad. He does it all by himself when Jake is at work, but gets soooo excited when Jake will play it with him.
