'86 Rabbit

A FANGirl's Forkstress of Solitude

New Moon

I dunno how I feel about the movie. I didn’t stay up after the midnight show and write a blog post about how angry it made me just so I could get some sleep, so it’s going that going for it. It still didn’t wow me. It felt like a video book report to me. I can’t wait to see what you all thought, but it will have to wait, and so will a more lengthy review from me. Until I’ve gotten some sleep and seen New Moon for a third time…

A Twilight Kind of Day

I don’t get to geek out too often anymore. Today was a good day. I played Twilight Trivia (NTN) at Pranksters Too and won! I ranked 59th in the Network, too! Then I went to see Where the Wild Things Are and got a reusable Edward Cullen New Moon cup, which gives you get one free refill. Guess when I’ll be getting my refill.

VMA Goodness

Thanks to My Favorite Unicorn and Peanut for reminding me about the VMA’s. Of course they didn’t remind me until today, so I had to watch everything online. That’s ok. I probably would have been annoyed sitting there waiting through endless teasers of, “Coming up…New Moon!”

Here’s the trailer. I don’t know how I feel about it. They pretty much showed us everything didn’t they? I don’t like the reappearance of Carter Burwell’s western Twilight showdown theme. It bothered me at the midnight now of Twilight, and it bothers me knowing I’m about to be bothered again. At least the production values look better…amazing in fact. Anyway here’s the Cliff’s Notes version of New Moon.

And here’s Death Cab For Cutie’s Meet Me on the Equinox. I think I like it. I don’t picture it playing during the movie, but I could be wrong. It just seems like a credits song. Nothing wrong with that.

Thanks, YouTube.  I appreciate you letting watch all these things that I miss when I’m away from the boob tube. And I’ve already forgotten where I got these particular vids. Sorry. I imagine you can figure it out somehow if you need to.

EDIT 19Sep09: Thanks TwilightSaga for the new Death Cab For Cutie vid. The other one got taken down.

New Moon on Monday

I still think MTV missed one heck of an opportunity there. Last year they had Twilight Tuesday. Who else but MTV could pull off ‘New Moon on Monday’? (Thanks Tonicfan!)

Almost Kiss?

Almost Kiss?

Does anyone know, do they really kiss? Will this be the next Best Kiss? Would an almost-kiss be considered?

Anyway, thanks to MTV for posting this video, story and photo (he’s only 17…he’s only 17…he’s only 17…). Viewers, be sure to stick around for the pop-up video-style commentary.

Ah, Duran Duran, how I’ve missed you. Let’s have some more New Moon-appropriate musical genius, shall we ? (thanks Gallard0o!)

Thoughts on the Eve of Comic-Con 2009

Dear New Moon,
 
Are you worried that you won’t be given the same attention Twilight was given at Comic-Con? I am. Sure, I felt I had already seen Twilight by the time I saw Twilight, with all the video that was posted on YouTube, but spoilers aside, it was fun feeling like I was part of the process. New Moon, you are my favorite of the Twilight Saga. It’s so unfair that they have kept us apart the way they have these many months, being stingy with their news, withholding video from the set, and in general being all closed off and selfish. There are even fewer and fewer blurbs about you in Entertainment Weekly (I bought a subscription just for you) and the folks over there are whores for all things Twilight. I can only hope that at this week’s Comic-Con there will be some great videos of you posted online, especially of the panel, with which I can SQUEE vicariously. I won’t be there again this year, so vicariously is all I have.
Counting the days until we’re together,
Rabbit

The New Moon Trailer

 

I went to see The Proposal with OMB and a bunch of friends. I’m so glad the girls were with me! None of us knew the New Moon trailer was playing before the movie! Talk about involuntary SQUEE! All we needed to see was the water and the rocks. There was a collective gasp at shirtless Jacob the likes of which I haven’t heard since we first saw Cedric Diggory jump out of that tree in Goblet of Fire. The theater was packed, and just about everyone seemed excited. Even one of the guys with us said, “Whoa! What happened to him?” I kept reminding the girls, “He’s only 17. He’s only 17…” I mean clearly I didn’t need reminding, being firmly on Team Edward. Don’t worry. I let everyone know that if they didn’t calm down that Chris Hansen would be showing up. That being said, can I just say how hilarious I think it is that you hear Laurent say, “mouthwatering,” and then the next thing you see is shirtless Jacob. What a clever subliminal message. I’m just sayin’!

The preview looked even better on the big screen, especially the fur-sploding wolf. I do hope that Edward doesn’t stop at, “This is the last time you will ever see me,” and actually does say, “It will be as if I never existed,” like he’s supposed to.  But all in all New Moon looks like it may be good, definitely better than Twilight.

We were all ready to go after the preview, but were pleasantly surprised that for the price of $9.50 they were actually going to let us see a movie, too. The Proposal was a lot of fun. We expected it to be good, but it was a lot funnier than any of us expected. It’s one of those movies that when I’m flipping through the channels I know I will have to stop and watch.

The Trailer

Caroolee7 was the first one to come up on YouTube, so I grabbed this there.

It gives me hope.

New Moon Poster

spunkransomreveals

 

Reasons I hesitate to believe:

  • Has anyone else seen that picture of Robward before? It looks familiar to me.
  • It looks like a lot of the wonderful fanmades we’ve seen in recent months with the coloring and mistiness.

Reasons I want to believe:

  • Summit might have actually listened to the fans and taken a page out of the fanmade book. It gives me hope.
  • Instead of a crescent moon in the background, it looks like an eclipse. That’s something I haven’t seen in fanmades.
  • While the pose is weird, I like that Jacob is getting between Bella and Edward.
  • Edward is eclipsing Jacob, much like the moon is eclipsing the sun above them.

Hello Vancouver!

I can see from my traffic feed that someone in Vancouver visited my humble blog. Thank you for coming and making me feel that much closer to the New Moon set!
