Eclipse Movie Night

It’s been awhile since I blogged…I haven’t written anything about the Eclipse Opening Night. I went with my family and my friend, Patty. Yes my husband, Mr. Monkeygirl went with us. We had planned on meeting up with my friends from work there too.

When my daughter and I went to New Moon we arrived at the theater around 9:30 and there were maybe 50 people in front of us. So we planned on getting to the theater around 9:00 for Eclipse. We should have arrived at 6 or 7. The line outside of the theater went around the building. I dropped Lil’Monkeygirl and Mr. Monkeygirl off to get in line while I found a place to park.

My friend Chris was already in line and she saved us spots. The line for the IMAX show was inside. Patty and I got my family and went inside. The IMAX theater holds around 350 people and the there were most likely 200 people in line in front of us. Anyways hanging out in line was fun. Lil’Monkeygirl found some of her friends and we hung out with them. The time went by fast. We spent the time talking and being silly. They let us in to get seats our group end being split up. Lil’Monkeygirl and Mr. Monkeygirl and I ended up in the last row on the end. It’s better than the front row.

Anyways here are some of our pictures in line.

I love Mr. Monkeygirl in the background listening to his Ipod.

My workbuddies and me. I orderd the Team Edward and Team Emmett shirts from Cafe Press. The sizes run small so if you order from them order 2 sizes bigger than you normally would wear.

My gal pal Patty and I (not the best quality picture)

Lil'Monkeygirl and Me. She loves Emmett.

As far as the movie, I thought it did capture the spirit of the book. It’s been awhile since I read Eclipse but I remember that Edward was really an Assward in the beginning of the book. The way he was controlling over Bella kind of pissed me off when I read it. Maybe that is where Domward came from? I don’t think controlling Edward came across in the movie. Also in the book when Jacob kissed Bella after the tent scene, didn’t he kind of trick her into kissing him? That was also when Bella saw in her mind what her life could have been like if she chooses Jacob with her little black haired babies. I heard/read on a blog that that scene might be one of the deleted scenes on the DVD. I did like that they did include the back story on Rosalie and Jasper. I loved every scene with Charlie. He was great!

I also loved the way they made Edward looked. I’m glad they didn’t have the ugly red lipstick like in New Moon. You could really tell that the acting of Rob and Kristen had improved greatly from the first movie. They have really evolved as actors.

So far I have only seen Eclipse two times so far. Mr. Monkeygirl wants to go and see it again and we will most likely go this week. I saw New Moon four times. I didn’t see Twilight in the movie theater because that was before I really knew anything about the phenomenon of Twilight. As you know I have only been in the fandom for a year now. What a year it has been!
