Twilight Night

Yes, I went to to see Twilight last night. I went with a group of what seemed like 2000 14 year olds. Just the thought of all the texting possibility in that place was enough to make my head spin. Before the movie began we were shown a few previews that filled all of their hormone-filled teen hearts with lust and desire, and then they brought on the Harry Potter trailer, and all them cheered. I have to say that I pretty much wanted to cheer with them but thought that I might embarrass my date, who just happens to be my husband. I kept wondering if I was the only Grandma there, and I still think that's a possibility. But there are some things you just want to do, and it was worth it. All through the movie the teen girls giggled, and sighed over Edward. I'm just glad that I'm not as silly as those girls. I didn't giggle at all. I only sighed.

I enjoyed the movie. There are a couple of things that I wish they could have done different, but all of those things would have cost more money than the movie makers had to spend on Twilight. Some of the special effects were a bit lame, but I thought that the acting by Robert Pattenson and Kristen Stewart was pretty good. I also really liked Bella's Dad and felt that he nailed the part. I'm hoping that they will make a ton of money on this film so that they can sink more of it into the next one.

Well that's all folks. Have fun at the movies.

One good thing about Twilight is it has upped the hormone level of a lot of menopausal women. I'm going on Monday because I don't want to watch it with all the noisy, giggly teens. I'm going for the more private and personal one on one experience with Edward.

This movie brings out the noisy, giggly hormone-driven teen in all of us (women)! So, no matter when you see it or who you see it with, you will giggle and sigh with the rest of them/us!

So the latest weekend reports have this little vampire flick earning a cook 70 million in its first weekend. We'll take it!

I agree with you that the movie was enjoyable and mostly due to Edward and Bella - well played!

Gotta love a little vampire baseball too - and that kiss, well I won't even go there!

I'm a happy woman! Will go see it again with the Queen tomorrow!
