Went to see New Moon the other night. The title appears on the screen one letter at a time. For a moment, the title read "Ew Moon." I'm afraid that was a subliminal message.
At one point I saw my friend, an admitted Twi-hard, checking her watch. As soon as the first credit appeared on the screen, a woman* in the row behind me said "That was terrible." A woman in the row in front of me said, "I should've waited a few months and picked this up out of the $1 bin."
I didn't think it was all bad, though it's never a good sign when a movie has unintentionally funny scenes (Bella and Edward running through the woods). It also had some nice if gratuitous abs. But I wouldn't recommend paying to see it in a theater.
Then again, I now hate watching movies in a theater. I want to get up, move around, stretch a bit, do something, rather than sit still for two hours.
Besides, I tend to make fun of any phenomenon that has tons of rabid fans because I have
Well, except the Beatles.
Then again, again, a better review would be: New Moon: the LolCats review.
*Most of the audience was made up of women in the 20s and 30s. Very few teenagers.
Exercise du jour: Couch to 5k Week 3 Day 3 Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following:
* Jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
* Walk 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
* Jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
* Walk 400 yards (or three minutes)
Done. Sorta. Okay, actually it would be more accurate to say 'half done' because I only did half the scheduled jogging. But on the other hand, I just spent two whole solid friggin' hours (and 14 minutes) on the phone with my mother trying to figure out why her all-in-one printer-scanner-WonderMachine wasn't working. And I think I deserve some kind of damn medal for that, so I'm putting the star up and don't you look at me like that, you'd've done the same. So there.
