New Moon - I have seen it!!!!

Wow! What else can I say??? Wednesday night at 11pm my daughters Samara and Courtney and myself headed off to our midnight viewing of New Moon. The cinemas were buzzing, there were Twilight T-Shirts galore and lots and lots of excited people, eager for the next installment of the Twilight saga...

Now, I won't say too much as there are many out there who haven't been able to see the movie yet and I don't want to give anything away. But I will comment on a few things!

1. I was very impressed with the quality of the film. The bigger budget has allowed a more polished look to the movie with some awesome special fx.

2. I felt the perfomance of all the actors was more believable than in Twilight. Maybe it was that they were more comfortable in their roles, or that they knew they had such a huge fan base with such high expectations. Whatever the reason, I felt that the personalities of the characters was more noticeable.

3. I loved how true to the book this movie was and that the parts that differed from the book, worked well in to the story. Obviously it is impossible to work all parts of the book in to the movie.

4. I LOVED VICTORIA!!! Her stunts were awesome, I am sooooo sad that she is not to be in Eclipse. To me, this IS Victoria, and in her Eclipse the focus is on her alot more. That has certainly tarnished Eclipse for me and I am not looking forward to the movie quite as much as I would have been.

5. I loved all the stunts, special fx, fight scenes etc... It seemed to have the right mix of action, romance and humour to allow the movie to appeal to a wide range of people. There were plenty of guys at the screening!!

6. The Volturi were spectacular! Dakota Fanning did a fantastic job as Jane! The scenery in Italy was magnificent and I am SOOO glad that it was filmed there. Made the scenes so very authentic!

I am off to see New Moon again tomorrow night and am just as excited as the first time I saw it. I had been questioning my sanity, going to a midnight screening after flying in from Queensland at midnight the night before! But I am so glad I did it and would do it again and again! Yesterday was a little difficult as I was SOOO tired, but had a good nights sleep last night and am rearing to go again.

Hoping to post some all new stuff on etsy in the next few days, so be sure to check it out. I am really happy with how the new stuff has turned out!
