New Moon

Last night a co-worker and I went to see the 12:01 showing of New Moon. For a little bit in the afternoon, there was panic when we realized the movie theater we wanted to go to was actually sold out. We scrambled a bit, but finally found one.

I really enjoyed the second movie. I thought the visuals were nicely done.

Things I liked:
* The way they shot the three blank pages of the books
* the way Jacob changed in midair
* the Werewolf Clan
* the awkward date
* the chat (above) between Alice and Bella
* Jacob's hair becoming normal
* the relationship between Bella and Jacob
* Charlie
* Dakota Fanning was really great her her evil part

Things I didn't like:
* The wolves seemed huge to me and I thought they were normal sized when reading the books, but I don't really remember
* Bella saying "You're like you're own sun"

Things I wished happened:
* Another Stephenie Meyer cameo (I did look for her, but maybe I missed her)
* more Charlie - he's wicked funny
* more Dakota Fanning

What about you guys? Have you seen it yet? Did you like it?

I enjoyed it better than the first one too. Something I didn't like was I thought Bella and Edward were so boring together.
Kristen Stewart was much better in this one and, to me, seemed more like the Bella I read in the books.

Loved it! Thought it was better than the first movie - loved the ending with the Volturi. And I agree - more Charlie please! He is hysterical! Can't wait for Eclipse...
