I think it was great to be in a theater with a bunch of fans. I loved that the group of 13 year olds behind me squealed when Edward came on the screen. One yelled out, "I love you, Edward!"
An older, obviously more jaded fan responded, "Get over it, Honey."
I liked the "movie." Was it great cinema? No. But it sure was a fan pleaser.
My problem was that the intensity between Bella and Edward was turned up to a 10 from the very beginning. The intensity had no chance to build.
I will say that I was pleased with Bella and Edward's onscreen chemistry. Their still shots did nothing for me, but Edward, live and in action, has a charisma that is undeniable, even for this Jacob fan.
Will I see the sequels? Did Jasper look constipated? The answer is, oh yeah!
Aubrey said, in her characteristic lower case style:
"i was just thumbing through the new VS catalog
and thought they should change these
from the boyfriend pajama
to the bella pajama.
frumpy flannel pjs?
don't they remind you of bella?"
I agree with Aubrey on changing the name from the "boyfriend pajama" to the "bella pajama." I don't know any self-respecting man under the age of 75 who would wear those.
"Look, Grandpa, I got you some new pajamas. I'll put them in your top drawer so the nurse will know where to find them."
Grandpa unable to voice his displeasure due to the stroke, wets his bed in defiance.
