Mrs V speakes out about New Moon and TayTay!

Sweet little TayTay: First I have to apologize that I have been so mean to you in all my last posts, but please you are still under age (Are you? I dunno..) and I’m in and out Team Edward. But, you won a little piece of my heart in New Moon. Don’t grab too much, but yes I’ll give you a piece of my heart. You ask what the Heck happened? Ok let me tell you ….:

Yesterday I saw New Moon again. After my last post about KStew and Bella and all the lovely comments from you girls, I saw New Moon with a tiny different eye. I never expected soo many comments, thank you all from the bottom of my heart! I love you all and I enjoyed reading them.

Thank you : fragile little human, Stan, Stoney, Erikasbuddy, Snarkier than you, Honolulu Girl, Anonymous, Amy, Susi, Bella, Annie, uhyesplease, Anonymous, Spellbound, Smuttier Than You, TwiNabler and Alice.

But I digress; we wanted to talk about TayTay. Yes he surprised me with his passion for this role. In Twilight I really gave a shit about Jacob, Jacob who? I mean, this wig was horrible but they really didn’t do any better in New Moon, just saying. I went into the theater ready to not like Jacob and after I saw New Moon the first time all I had in my head was KStew with her wonderful performance and well Edward … Yesterday sweet little boy TayTay won that piece of my heart.

I was honestly a bit confused why he came to Bella’s school on her birthday, normally they are not real good friends at this part but when he gave Edward THIS look it was awesomeness and great! However, the wig is still ugly!

I really felt his joy when Bella came to see him, sweet! The scenes were they are working on the bikes were sweet and nice.

I won’t go into a detailed New Moon discussion I’ll rather focus on the scenes that are prominent in my mind.

What I liked most on the bike scene was not seeing his naked chest (under age, remember?!) it was rather his ability to bring a weird situation back to normal with a tiny joke and a smile. “How hard did you hit your head?” .

Really good was TayTay in the “break-up”, he performed this scene with such a passion and despair it was wonderful. Really great!!

Should I mention the scene when TayTay climbs or better jumps into Bella’s room? Awesome!

One of his best scenes (for me ) was in Emily’s house were he leaned cool on the door and waves his head to Bella to follow him! There, I totally forget this under age thing!!!

What I really liked is that Chris Weitz changed a bit the scene at Bella’s house when Alice comes back. I never liked that Jacob just went away without seeing that everything is fine after he realized that there is a Vampire. He didn’t do that in the book but I always thought Jacob would have to make sure Bella is safe. The kitchen scene and this almost kiss was wonderful and in that scene I really wanted them to kiss!!! Yes I’m still Team Edward but TayTay would have deserved this kiss. When he said in Quileute “Stay with me forever” it was all heartbreaking and sweet. The despair when he begged Bella to stay was perfect delivered!

Damn, and I felt so bad for him in the very last forest scene when he realized he will have never have a chance to get Bella back, that she will always choose Edward over him. I read people complaining that Bella said “ I love you” to him but I found this very appropriate to be honest. She does love him, not like a lover but she loves him more than anybody else apart from Edward.

And this Mr Weitz was simply genius!!:

TayTay: That is all why I love you now, you did a wonderful performance in New Moon and I wish you a happy ending from the bottom of my heart. But, be aware you will always be the dog for me because I know you want to take Bella away from Edward!

So girls, now it’s you. Were you surprised by TayTay’s performance? Did he also get a piece of your heart although you are all Team Edward? To all the Team Jacob peeps do you now love me now a bit more? ;)

MrsV speaks out about New Moon and Bella!

Wake up from the New Moon coma, it’s time!

It’s been now more than two weeks ago since New Moon finally hit the theaters. We waited so long for this and now I have the feeling that we are all sitting in a black hole. The excitement slowly went down and now we have to wake up.

I expected that I would read reviews, opinions’, screaming’s all over in bloggy world but it’s been fairly quite. Annie at the Danger Magnet gave a really cool review and slowly the other blogs come out now of the black hole and start telling about their experience at the premiere and what they like or dislike about New Moon. I already told you about my New Moon weekend with my beautiful Twincé Betti but I now want to tell you what I think about New Moon itself!

Yes, I woke up! I came out of the coma and left the black whole and now I will tell you!

I start with something all of you would probably not expect from me but I will talk about Kristen Steward and Bella first. Hu???? Read on please, don’t leave me now!

When I go back to our Twilight Book vs. Movie discussion it became clear that most people really don’t like KStew, don’t like her being Bella and dislike her acting skills. Well, I came out of New Moon and one of the first things I said to Betti was : “ I love KStew in here! Period!! “

First of all, she got older and she’s super gorgeous and beautiful. In Twilight she was a girl I wouldn’t even recognize on the street because she was just not shining. Apart from her lack of glow the stupid makeup she had in Twilight, this ugly blue eye shadow was so unnecessary! One had the feeling she was still trying to find the “Bella” inside her, in New Moon she IS Bella.

The way she showed Bella’s grief and despair was heartbreaking, when you looked into her eyes you saw the emptiness, at least I saw it! One scene will always make me cry and breakes my little heart is when she is sitting in the chair and we go through October, November, December. I even have goosebumps now while writing it and thinking about it. Together with the song “Possibilities” it gives me exactly the feeling I needed to have in this scene!

I heard some people complaining that she didn’t cry during the breakup scene, but for me there was no need for it. She was beyond being able to cry and when she’s lying in the wood rolled inside her it was all how I pictured it while reading the book.

I saw the happiness coming back into her eyes when being with Jake and I saw her anger when she punched Jared in his face! I saw her attempt to show Charlie that she’s willing to try and start living again, you know in the scene when they are standing besides her truck and Charlie tells her that she has to go back to Jacksonville!

And, I believed her despair when Jake who told her that he’s not good for her.

I loooooveeeeeed how she told Edward to shut up during the voting scene!

When talking about Bella, one more thing comes into my mind what I found super clever and perfect, the emails to Alice. You get two things with that, First how close the relationship between Bella and Alice is and Second, Bellas desperate feelings and grief. Something you always deal with while reading the book but in a movie one can’t get that so it was clever to do it that way, I loved it and how excruciating it is that all those emails come back …

The only scene where I’m not sure about is the Meadow scene! First, it was a perfect twist to make the Meadow all sere – great idea!!! It matches perfectly Bellas feelings when she arrives at the Meadow, before you see the beautiful Meadow and then all is gone and sere… But I’m not sure if I got the right feeling about her heartbreaking, maybe I would just have to see it again.

However, to conclude once more: I love her in New Moon. She finally became my Bella and I can’ wait to see her in Eclipse and finally as a beautiful and breathtaking Vampire in Breaking Dawn!!

So my lovely girls and guys, tell me all about it:

Do you love Bella or still don’t like her? Was she better in your eyes than in Twilight? What did you like and what not? Was there a scene where she surprised you ? Was there a scene where she totally annoyed you ?
