Hooked...

I've never been the type to get hooked on certain "hyped up" movies such as Harry Potter(no thanks), Star Trek(not.so.much) Etc... you get the picture. I have always been a sucker for a good love story or love/comedy; like Hope Floats, The Notebook, How to loose a guy in 10 days and all the other mushy, the girl gets the guy, make you feel all good kinda stuff.

So when all the Twilight hype started I took my usual "who cares" approach. I had no desire to watch it, not into vampires and wolves, bla bla bla.

Well... a few weeks ago I caught the last half of Twilight because it came on Showtime and the curiosity to how the movie started was born.

This brings me to this past weekend(Friday to be exact). The family went out to Buffalo Wild Wings and we ran into some friends. OF COURSE we crashed their dinner and we all sat an caught up. During dinner, I asked if she has seen any of the Twilight movies. She not only seen them... she has them ALL on DVD. Hello!

Long story short... we stopped by her house so I could borrow the movies.

That night both the kids wanted to watch... with a little hesitation on the matter, I agreed. The first movie was Great. I kept thinking that I should have watched that a damn long time ago. After it was over... I put the kids to bed and was like... shit, my ass is wide awake... I just throw in New Moon and even if I fall asleep... I finish tomorrow.

FALL ASLEEP MY ASS!!! Though New Moon is not my fav... at the end... I was left ready for more.

So there I was... should be sleeping because I don't get a whole lot of that and its like 2am... but NO! I HAVE TO KNOW! And at that point... wide ass awake... I slip Eclipse into the DVD player.

Yes! At this point I realize that I have serious issues :/

At the end of Eclipse, I was still left wanting more. I seriously can't wait until the next one comes out. And, at this point, if I had to choose, Eclipse would have to be my favorite of the three so far. However, don't forget that the first one had me hooked so it is pretty up there in the "that's a good movie" category.

Definite intense love story that makes you want more.

I leave this post (that came out of left field) with these words of admittance...

Hi! My name is Lora and

Team Jacob here, and I have to say the books are fantastic! I loved the last book the best, so I am totally looking forward to the last 2 movies! Go read the books, you'll find out what happens at the end before the movie comes out and you'll get even more detail and more love story-ness from them! Enjoy.

Oh Alexis...LOVE YOU...LOVE True Blood!

For both, the BOOKS are better!

The last Twilight book is by far the best! Not really an Edward fan here...he creeps me out, not a Bella fan either. But definitely a Twilight fan!!

Meri said...

LOL! We are on the same team!

I was going away on a quiet retreat for a few days and my mom gave me a book my sister left when she was visiting. I DEVOURED it that weekend. Turns out it was Twilight, before all the hype. Seriously a good book, and it gets you...in the mood, so to speak. :)

Misty said...

Oh no....now you are making me want to watch them!!

Stephanie said...

LOL! I love it. You have to read the books - they are SO good. I finished all 4 of them in like 2 weeks (this was well over a year ago, pre-D). SO GOOD! You must go read Breaking Dawn right now. :)

Donna ((Sweet Momma)) said...

Woooohooooooo - you are on my team, then. Jacob can be such a punk.
Read the books - they are WAY better than the movies, and the way Breaking Dawn goes down will have you riveted. =)

Pam said...

I'm with everyone else in saying that the books are WAY better than the movies! I was SO Team Edward when I was reading, but... HOLD ON! I didn't picture Jacob being quite so, um, chiseled. Hottie!

Amy said...

Yes, yes Lora. You MUST get ahold of the books (or even the audio versions if you don't care to read) because there is so much more to love!!!!! And I am definetely on Team Jacob ;)

Laura @ Houston We Have A Problem! said...

I read the books like you watched the movies! I could not put them down. Luckily, it was before Nate's dx ---- cause I totally abandoned my family and went all Team Edward!!

I haven't even seen the movies - - maybe I should check them out!
