Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I had a great birthday on Friday and it ended perfectly by going to watch the premiere of New Moon. I've had a few questions on what I thought of the film, so....
In one sentence: I loved it!! When I saw the trailer, earlier in the year, I was a bit "worried" that the wolves didn't look like they were described in the book. As in, they did not look very big. However I was really pleased to see that in the film they did indeed appear much bigger than a normal wolf :)
The story was great. Of course. As we all know who love and have read the books. So there's not so much to comment on that bit. I think it was pretty close to the book story. But there were a few little details/parts where I found myself thinking "hey that's not in the book!"
One thing that I always find myself wondering about though (and the same goes for the Harry Potter films too, maybe even more so) - how much sense would the film make to someone who's not read the books? How many little bits do you not pick up on or get? But then again, I guess most people who would go and watch it are fans of the books anyway :)
Another thing that I keep thinking about though... You know how you read a book and picture the characters in your head and they look a certain way? Robert Pattinson just isn't Edward to me!! Don't get me wrong. He's a great actor and acts a very good Edward... he just looks all wrong to me :( Everyone raves about how great he is as Edwards so I must be the only person in the world who thinks this. LOL! Taylor Lautner on the other hand - great, great Jacob. Both the acting and the looks - perfect fit to my imagination :)
I definitely loved the film and I'll be there getting my copy when it's released on DVD :)
Right I'm off as I'm busy working on my Christmas journal. Putting together all the pages and making the covers from scratch. Quite a task.
