Bite Me Please




Okay, peeps.  I saw it!  I don't know who talked me into this, (Emily) but I got home at 3:00 in the morning from our midnight viewing of Twilght. Besides all my crazy friends in celebration of Shauna's birthday, we were in a sold out theater of out of control screaming females and 2 screaming men.  I counted.  Hilarious.  I went in with low expectations and came out pleasantly surprised.  This is my review...

It was better than expected!  Yay!  I was a little worried from the trailers because it looked like it might be  a little cheesy in some parts but I think they pulled it off.   I am now looking forward to the next one.  For one,  it will partly be filmed in Italy and second because the budget will hopefully allow for them to hire a real hair and make-up person.  That aspect of it was a little disappointing.  Jasper had way cute curly permed hair with lots and lots of hair gel.  I know they're supposed to be pale but they also need to be beautiful.  And Rosalie was another disappointment.  Poor thing.  I guess who do you choose to be the most beautiful woman in the world?  That's a lot of pressure.  

On to the good stuff.  Edward was excellent.  EXCELLENT!  And Bella was good too.   There was hot chemistry between them.  Edward is delicious.  My favorite line is, "You don't know how long I've waited for you."  Are you kidding?  Ditto. (Love you, Dave.)  Edward was so lonely.  I was happy for him.  And our little Shark Boy, Jacob, was precious.  They'll have to do some CGI in the next movies to make him a little taller because he looked 4 feet.  But what a great smile.  

The bad guys were good.  The shirtless black vampire with dreadlocks was cut.  That was fun.  Victoria is beautiful,  (maybe she should have played Rosalie?)  James was a good bad guy.  

So to sum up, I liked it.  It was fun.  I give it 41/2 stars.

Did I ever tell you that growing up my mom owned a cookie business called Bite Me Cookies. Fun.

Anyway, I agree with your review. I thought Carlisle needed some serious makeup help. Yes on Jasper's hair and Rosalie. James was an awesome bad guy.

That kiss... THAT KISS! Holy crap, I was dying. It will for sure win Best Kiss on the MTV Movie Awards.

Let's see... what else. I liked Charlie... the fast cars... when he rescued her in Port Angeles... running through the forest... Alice pitching the baseball...

Let's go again! I was sad I missed dinner with the girls.

As one of the few men in the world who've read all four books (yeah, I said it – jealous?), I'm just hoping there's more action than Edward-gazing.

And having a wife who reviews films is kind of hot for this movie fanatic. Reserve some private time tonight, Steph . . .

4 1/2 stars out of what? That's pretty vague! :) Yes, lets all go take the hubbies to it next week. Oh wait, you'll be gone Steph! Dang!

What? I never heard of this movie. Is this the one by Al Gore? Oh wait, that's something about "truth" not "twilight"; wrong t-word. Anyway, glad it was fun and glad I can be conversant about it without actually having to go see it.

Yep! It was great!
So, Dave, you aren't the only man to have read all the books. In fact, J-dog read them before I did. (Maybe I should let him be the one to confess that! Oops.) Being a Jacob lover, I have to say, I was disappointed with their choice - they should've asked me for help on that one. HeeHee.
Definitely worth going again and again and again. . .

Hi Stephanie. I didn't realize you had this blog. I had only seen your Mac photo website. I like your review of Twilight. Unfortunately I haven't seen it yet.

It was good to see you and your cute girls!
