Dad & Hodgie clearly did not know what they were getting into when they agreed to see New Moon with us on Saturday night. They seemed genuinely surprised that we had to arrive an hour in advance to get in line for the theater. They also noted with wonder that many of the girls in line were wearing Twilight shirts - including Mom. When the previews finally ended and the first glimpse of the title screen appeared, the whole theater erupted into ecstatic screams - and Hodgie & Dad looked at us with both fear and disgust in their eyes. I guess we kind of tricked them...
I managed to re-read about 300 pages of New Moon during my LGA-JAX flight earlier in the day, so I was impressed with how close this flick stayed to the book. And aside from all that, Jacob's abs were worth the price of admission. Honestly, I didn't think I could be swayed on this... but I might be a little more Team Jacob than Team Edward these days. I know, right?
The countdown is on... Eclipse in June 2010!
