It was good enough, not great, but good enough. The first 30-45 minutes were seriously cheesy. I laughed in places that I’m sure were not intended to be funny. But, as the movie progressed, it got better and I look forward to a sequel. The movie was pretty low budget so I am hoping that New Moon has more money to work with. I went twice this weekend…Friday night with a bunch of girls, which was way fun. Saturday night with Blaine, who really wasn’t a fan at all but a good sport to go with me. He said that if it was done by the same people who do Harry Potter, it could have been good.
Here is my rundown of the characters:
Edward: Hot, hot, hot, except when he looked slightly, well, um, retarded, to be less than PC.
Bella: In the book she is dull, pessimistic, and boring. She did not disappoint in the movie. Kristen Stuart appears to be dull and boring herself so she did a great job being herself.
Carlisle: Hot, hot, hot…no exceptions.
Esme: Small part, good job.
Rosalie: Did not cut it for me as an amazingly beautiful person.
Emmett: Great job.
Alice: Cute girl and I liked her small performance.
Jasper: What was up with Jasper? He seriously looked like a constipated Edward Scissorhands. I laughed every time I saw him.
Three bad vampires: Great performances, especially James!
Charlie: Played the role very well.
Jacob: Worked for me as Jacob but how are they going to beef him up for the next movie?
So, what did you think?
