Although I had not finished the book, I went to see New Moon on Saturday anyway because my mom...and, okay, I...couldn't wait! Can I just say that I absolutely loved this movie?! I'm not going to go in to an extensive review or anything. However, I will say that before this movie, I was totally Team Edward, but by the middle of the movie, I found myself playing for both teams...LOL! Of course, I ended up staunchly back on Team Edward by the end of the movie, but I still have to throw some cred at Jacob (Taylor Lautner). He can really hold his own. I thought the effects in New Moon were much better than Twilight (big surprise...larger budget anyone!) The werewolves were amazing! And I also enjoyed the edition of the Volturi characters. Michael Sheen (Aro) was spot on, as usual. And Dakota Fanning (Jane)...genuinely creepy with the red eyes. As the final words of the movie were spoken, I said to my mom, "Now I really can't wait to finish the book!"
