So ECLIPSE was released on DVD today.
Did you run out and get your copy?
Oh... I have mine ordered...
But the whole 'midnight' release thing isn't my cup of tea...
Nor is going to Target on a Saturday morning.
I'm kinda lazy that way.
Yeah, I probably won't get my copy until Monday...
But I'm OK with that.
I've watched Eclipse so many times already
the only thing I'm anxiously waiting for is listening
to Robert and Kristen giggle and flirt
and have inside jokes on the commentary.
It's kinda weird to see how much the characters have changed
Especially Jacob... Thank God.
I guess outside of looking a bit older
Bella looks pretty much the same.
That first Edward...
That was the picture of Rob
where I KNEW that he was going to be close to *my* Edward.
It's still my favorite, I think.
I'm kinda grateful that I read the books before the movie came out.
And that I have a version of Edward in my head...
A version that I see whenever I read his words
Whenever I imagine him in my mind.
I like that he is mine...
and I don't have to share him with anyone.
Robert does come close though...
So very close.
|Yes... We actually get PAID for doing this ;)|
Just thinking about the movies makes me
realize how much my Twilight obsession has waned.
Twilight was ALL consuming for me.
I saw it 3 days (out of 5x) in a row in the theater.
I couldn't stop just STARING at Rob.
I watched it online almost everyday there for a while.
I couldn't get enough of it.
When it came to buying the DVD...
I ended up with three copies.
Of course some of the blame lies at Summit's feet for
letting everyone and my grandmother have their own version.
I'm sure it was the fact that Edward was going to be
someone I could now watch... instead of just imagine
that made Twilight so intoxicating for me.
That the world that Stephenie Meyer created
would actually come to life.
It was endlessly fascinating to me.
My stomach does flip-flops just remembering how I felt.
|I love you, Kristen... I mean Bella!|
Then came New Moon.
Yes, I was still interested
(I always will be... let's face it)
I was eager to see Edward and Bella actually share
some real intimacy...
the one real complaint I have about Twilight.
After seeing it the first time in the theater
(and this time it was only 3x)
I remember driving home and thinking...
that I felt differently about this movie.
That I didn't get that flip-flop in my stomach...
that it wasn't the same.
|I don't care about any wig... you always look beautiful.|
And finally Eclipse.
(Damn "E" key is still broken... I should do something about that)
My favorite book of the series.
Edward and Bella
Bella and Edward.
And oh yeah... Jacob.
I love this movie.
I saw it 3x in the theater
I know 3x is nothing compared to the people
who saw it a zillion times.
But 3x for me... is a lot.
There were a couple of scenes that bothered me
(Yes, the motorcycle scene was ridiculous)
It was good.
I think the bloom is off the 'rose'.
Well... silly pun but true.
Once I knew how Edward would look onscreen...
Once I got to meet Bella
and the Cullens...
And see Forks High School...
That anticipation was gone.
And of course we have been saturated with all things Twilight
for over 2 years now...
That might have a play in my feelings.
Needless to say
(and of course I'm going to say it anyway)
I still love and adore Robert Pattinson.
I'm still intoxicated with him.
Maybe just not Twilight as much.
I doe no.
|Of course I'll marry you!!!|
So in parting...
A few thoughts.
1. Enjoy the hell outta Eclipse.
I look forward to getting my copy.
But I think I might just wallow in Twilight this weekend.
2. The best part of the movies to me?
A. Edward was brought to life.
B. Rob and Kristen fell in love.
3. Outside of the Eclipse release...
News has been painfully... absent.
Now I just sit and wonder
when Rob and Kristen will make their way to London
for the holidays.
It's been a while for Rob.
You know he needs to go back there.
You know he needs to be with Kristen.
I guess we shall see what happens... and when.
|I love you like Rob loves Kristen...|
This post is brought to you by the letter *E*
E for ECLIPSE!
E for eeeeeeeeeeeee
Everytime I try to fix my broken 'e'.
I actually thought I did it...
But that sucker keeps popping off.
E for Edward
I love a fictional character.
Seems weird to even admit that...
But I do.
And I will be forever grateful
because Edward brought me to Robert.
And I love him... too.
" Love Begins At Tome."
Bye for now
