Midnight showing of “New Moon”

So I went to the Jackopierce acoustic concert (awesome) last night and had every intention of going to the midnight showing of New Moon.

But I was too tired after the show ended.  And I went to the early one.  How sad is that?

I know.  I’m a bad fan.  I do have advanced tickets to join all the tweens and their mothers after work, so never fear, I will continue my Harry Potter and Twilight Saga tradition of seeing the new films on opening weekend.

I’m actually getting a bit nervous about it though.  I hear it’s really bad acting.  Fortunately…I have no problem with bad acting or movies that don’t encourage me to think on a deep level.  (I’m sure  if you checked out the DVDs I have in my collection, you probably would come to that conclusion on your own.)   But I’m going to persevere for this reason alone:

Have I ever mentioned that I’m Team Jacob?

Anyway…

I figured we all needed a place to share our feelings about the movie.  Sound off below and let me know if you liked it in an “oh-my-awesomeness” way, or if you knew it would be lame and you are just embracing the cheese because that’s your nature.  Have fun!

I am glad to see American adults embracing their “inner nerd.” I’ve always been a nerd – welcome to the party.

I am one of the mothers that will have my tween (and her best friend) at a showing tomorrow. I’m actually more excited than she is, I think. My 12 year old daughter actually called me “insane” this morning as I was jumping up and down in the kitchen begging her to do the same with me. TEAM JACOB!!!!

As far as the bad acting, that’s to be expected. The first one was full of that. I don’t care, the wolf pack is what I’m there to see!!!!!!!

Om My Awesomeness! That is some intense acting…and as cheesy as that is and Twilight was…I still have every intention of seeing all of these movies in the theatres with the screaming teenagers…along with my other 30 something friends! I embrace the guilty pleasure that is teen highschool vampire/werewolf/witch entertainment – I include Twilight, Harry Potter and now, sadly (or happily!) Vampire Diaries! I expect some more New Moon entries before yoru month of blogging is over! :0)

A real-life conversation between my cousin and I…

Cousin: So, what do you think about the Twilight books? Should I read them?

Me: I think they are badly written, angsty, emo, teenage, vampire drama.
Fortunately I happen to really like badly written, angsty, emo, teenage, vampire drama.

I fear that I have such high expectations for the movie, based on the book and Taylor’s hotness, that I might be disappointed. I so hope not, though! =.) I will be enjoying the bad acting tonight with three other 26 year old women, and we’re all SUPER excited! =.) TEAM JACOB…how can you like the pasty vampire after looking at Jacob? Enjoy whenever you get the chance to see the movie! =.)

Two words come to mind when I see Taylor Lautner in his “oh my awesomeness”…..JAIL BAIT…then I realize that when I was 17, guys just didn’t look like that so I wipe up the miniscule drool, slap myself and repeat…JAIL BAIT…good grief, he’s young enough to be my kid.

I’m getting out of work early today so I invited a couple of co-workers to go see it while the kiddies are in school. Will let you guys know if it’s thumbs up or down. I’m not goo-goo ga-ga over any of the actors in it, it’s entertaining to me though. I do think Kristen whats-her-face is kind of a lame actress though. Here’s what I’ve heard so far: the cinematography (sp?) is MUCH better than the last one, looks less fake, etc. Both friends who saw the midnight showing said it was great. I honestly haven’t heard anything bad thus far (i.e. friend’s facebook statuses, etc.).

Well, I saw the movie at midnight last night. I must say the acting wasn’t as cheesy as it was in Twilight, but it does have its moments. The Taylor Lautner trailers, don’t do him justice. I mean, seriously?? Wow. Again, it is much better than Twilight and a lot more believable.

I embrace the cheese. I know it will be cheesy but don’t care. My 13 year old and I will be there this weekend. She is Team Edward to the core, I am Team Hot Guy (meaning at 40 years old I just like to look at the hot young guys and dream about when I was younger, is that creepy?). And you are absolutely right, Debbie, 17 year old guys DID NOT look like that when I was young.

I know I embrace cheesiness because I spent four hours of my life this weekend watching Sixteen Candles… twice. Love It!!!!!

Totally Team Jacob. I say go for the ‘visual effects’ alone! Who cares if the acting is no good!

I generally embrace cheesiness so I will be seeing this movie. However, I must say I was a little put off at the fact that poor little Taylor is just that…”little”. Serioulsy! I think I could break that kid like a twig! I get that Jerry Rice is a big football player…but c’mon…Jay Leno has to be normal size like 5’11” and he was TOWERING Taylor.

I saw it at midnight and honestly was a little disappointed, but then again my expectations were very high. The acting was terrible, especially Kristen Stewart, watching her in the movies and in interviews she’s exactly the same; no smile, no quick wit, nothing, just there. It’s definite redeeming qualities are the wolf pack (I think Taylor Lautner should be shirtless ALWAYS) and Jessica, they definitely give us some laughs. I am looking forward to your thoughts Lincee!

I, myself, will probably not be seeing New Moon until it comes out on DVD. I was greatly disappointed in Twilight. The movie didn’t do the book justice. Although it did give us Robert Pattenson (and for that I thank them). #12 KT- I agree with you that Kristen Stewart is a terrible actress. Just poor casting there. I’ll admit that Jacob is hot but I am still team Edward all the way!!

I must admit that I was far more fascinated on this post with the fact that Jackopiece is still performing than the cheeiness of the New Moon cast’s acting skills!! I loved, loved, loved JP and went to every concert they played in Lawrence when I was in college, just Jack and Cary on their guitars rocking it out. I still even have my original concert t-shirts packed away – for some reason I just can’t give them up yet. Then they had to go all “mainstream” on the fans and added a bass player and drums and lost all their awesomeness. So to hear that they are still playing accoustic sessions is the best news ever. I am Googling their tour schedule immediately.

Oh-my-AWESOMENESS!!!! Went and saw it this morning at 10:30 at the Northeast Mall in Hurst. All the crazy women went nuts. So much fun and Taylor could be a Greek god. It seems like Kristen Stewart got some acting lessons, still not great but much better than in Twilight.
