Some times people astound me...

Let me start this blog post by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The quality of the film and effects were so much better this go 'round and I was also equally pleased with the adaptation of the book. I'll not be going into details because I have a pal who I am currently trying to convince to be part of the fabulous world of Twilight.

Also I should probably say that this rant is a little more on edge than usual because I had 2 hours and 20 minutes of sleep last night. I did take a nap, but I've gone soft in my old age because apparently I need my sleep. Who knew? All those all-nighters in college seem like major crazy talk now.

Now that the niceties are over, I'll talk about the ridiculousness that it was to get into the movie.

We show up approximately an hour before the movie starts.I know my commitment level isn't what it should be, but we wound up with good seats. How that happened, I will never know because there was a serious lack of organization. People went inside when the plan was for the people to be in the line for your movie time OUTSIDE of the theater. I know this makes me sound like a cry baby, because people cut but seriously, the management should have enforced this rule. We all payed money to be there. Let's have a fair process.

Also, can someone PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE explain why it is okay to take your 6-8 year old to a midnight premiere?

I don't think I am being old school on this.

If my 13 year old brother and sister can't go to the premiere b/c my parents reason that it is a school night, then there is no reason why your sweet little girl with her cute Team Edward t-shirt should be up this late.

Hear me?


There is also no reason why you should have an INFANT at the premiere.

I wish I were kidding really I do but I couldn't make this up if I tried.

I realize that you're a fan like I am.


It is called a baby sitter or if you're fortunate enough to have family in town then call them!

BUT do NOT bring your infant child to a movie theater.

So what they won't remember seeing the movie, the point is that they could CRY! Remember that part about all of us PAYING to see the movie?

I realize this might make me a meanie head but so be it.

I did not pay to hear a kid cry, thankyouverymuch!

By the way, the kid never cried. BUT STILL.

There were also multiple 6-8 year old kids that I saw at the premiere. They all looked so cute in their Team Edward/Team Jacob shirts, leggings and skirts and for a moment I was distracted by how they looked by mini teeny-boppers.

And then my mom's school teacher that is ingrained into my body for all eternity kicked in and I came to my senses.

FOR THE LOVE, why are these little kids at a MIDNIGHT premiere??

And then, can someone tell me why you want to dress like you're going clubbing to this deal?

I wasn't there in my pjs, but I was there in jeans and a hoodie. I had little make-up on because it was late and obviously Rob Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner weren't going to be making any appearances other than on the screen last night....;)

Seriously, I really do think that all the girls in their cute t-shirts and leggings were darling.

Really I do.

And as juvenile as it was, it was cute when all the girls screamed when Jacob had no shirt on and again at the end of the movie when Edward does what he does.

But the lack of common sense is astounding in this world some times.

I know they say it takes all kinds to make the world go 'round, and it is even more so evident in the Twilight fan world.

And now, I've stepped off my soapbox.

Thank you for listening to my rant and now if you'll excuse me, I've got a real night of sleep ahead of me.

Yeah... I'm your first comment, well, because I'm still up. I took WAY to long of a nap today.

Line was crazy. People are stupid.

It was nice to meet two people with as much of a sense of decency as us!

Yeah, my nap was way too long today too! The Hubs made several comments about the children at the movie premiere last night too. Age range 5-11. We were unimpressed. The content isn't really age appropriate for 5-11, but hey, whatevs.

I still can't get over this! Poor infant with her movie-blown-out ears!

Taking an infant to a midnight movie actually makes more sense to me than taking a 6-8 yr old out on a school night. I know if it was my baby she would've gone right to sleep as soon as the movie started and slept through the whole thing since she's always asleep at that time anyway.

Gonna step out on a limb here... I don't get the Twilight hubbub...I just don't. I'm probably the only person in the world who hasn't read and/or seen the movies. Don't hate me please....

I'm with ya on taking young kids to late movies. What gives?
