Is anyone else excited about "New Moon" coming out today? I know I am! I must admit, a while back, you wouldn't have heard me say this. I actually do not like giving into the "hype" when music, movies, etc.--comes out. For some reason, when I see everyone going crazy about something to this nature, I actually wait a while to see what I think of it. Case in point I love many artists who are mainstream, but most of the artists that I listen to are well known, but have not yet blown up into MAINSTREAM SUPER-STARDOM.
I have a interest in vampires and things of this nature, having been into Ann Rice novels when I was younger. Finally, I gave into my curiosity and I watched the movie Twilight last night, which is the first installment of the Stephenie Meyers saga. I actually LOVED it! I have heard mixed reviews on this movie. Of course, I hear many "teeny-boppers" going coo coo for cocoa puffs over the two main men in this movie, Edward Cullen and Jacob Black , played by Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, respectively. I have also read reviews where people bashed the movie for being to mainstream and not sticking exactly to the book. I have not yet read the books, so I cannot vouch for that. What are your thoughts?
What I know is this: I am truly intrigued by the story between The Cullens, The Wolf Pack, and The Volturi, and I cannot wait to see "New Moon" this weekend! I am also planning on reading the books as well and catching up to the awesomeness that I have been missing out on.
