New Moon (and Personal Finance Links)

Written by

Today, I made good on my promise to take my wife to the Twilight / New Moon Saga. I'd put the first 25 or 30 minutes of the movie up there with the most boring of any I've seen. At least it picked up from there almost edging into being an average movie in my opinion. In fact, it's not up with other Kristen Stewart movies. The very underrated Adventureland, for example, blew it out of the water, in my opinion.

Here's a couple mostly spoil-less thoughts. Those who have seen the movie (or I'm told read the books) will know what I'm going with these.

  • The highlight for me was this Alice quote, "Leave it to you, Bella. Anyone else would be better off when the vampires left town." The real quote is longer, but gives a little more of the story away.
  • The whole concept of the movie - seemed somewhat lifted from The Real Ghostbusters - Episode 38 - No One Comes to Lupusville. Click through for some subtle hints there.

Also in the previews we saw Letters to Juliet - really the whole movie - in about 3 or 4 minutes. After it, my wife and I turned to each other and said, in unison "And that was a good movie." The screen then flashed to show "Coming Soon", and three other people in the theater commented how it was already out and they just saw it.

And now the personal finance links:

    Can’t believe you gave into the whole New Moon craze. I’ve refused to go see it, and I don’t care if I don’t get any for a week because of it, it’s the principle of the thing.

    From the Twilight (w/c many has a disappointments) to the New Moon, having it same with the books, the movie has always been a problem (even from the other books). For me having it played in the theaters somewhat caters other people to experience the story even from a glimpse on it from the book. A not bad adaptation for me.

    Lazyman, you are a great husband – hope she appreciates it. I refused to go.

    I’ll be spared the movie. My wife is taking our daughter to see it. Thought the first one was dull and could have been a TV mini-series. Ah well. Love the Real Ghostbusters reference! Loved that cartoon.

  5. Those of you who have wives, daughters or girlfriends are required to see this. LOL! Okay I heard about what a big deal this was but when I saw the previews, I was not that impressed, so I skipped it. My tastes run elsewhere: I’m waiting for the next Korean horror movie that makes it to the big screen.
