November 22, 2008: Twilight

  Sooooooo, we went to the movies last night.  Deena had told me earlier in the week that they were going to go out Friday night and see a movie with the kids.  I was thinking we could go see "Bolt", but they told me the kids wanted to see Twilight.  I had no clue what this movie was about, who was in this movie, or that it wasn’t "just" a movie, but a movement.  lol

  Apparently, this movie/book has a HUGE following among several groups of people.  One of those groups would be teeney bop girls – as we were surrounded by these girls at the movie – the second group must be middle aged women.  Perhaps the mothers of all of these teen girls?  I don’t know.  All I know is that the movie theatre in Paducah had a ton of middle aged women with "Twilight" shirts on.  They were screaming – ooooing  – and awwwwing throughout the movie.

  I assume this is what it was like when the "Beetles" came out on stage?  Elvis perhaps?

  I felt like I was sitting in the middle of a 90210 episode.  Girls where chatty about how to break up with their boyfriends through text messaging on cell phones – their latest boyfriend at school – how cute the vampires were going to be in the movie.  It didn’t take me long to figure out that Deena had invited us to a classsssssic teen movie.

  To make matters worse – we arrived early.  Before Deena and Tony.  Before Tyler and Danielle.  There were only a few seats left.  Deena wanted us to save them five.  That wasn’t going to happen.  We ended up sitting all the way on the top row – surrounded by about 10 teen girls.  Deena and them arrived later and didn’t get to sit anywhere near us.  (note to self – next time wait outside for everyone else)

  When the movie started the majority of the movie theater erupted into screams and cheering.  That continued on and off throughout the movie.  I honestly don’t ever remember being in a movie quite like Twilight.  Then there were the "kissing and snuggle" scenes between the main vampire and his "human" girlfriend.  I thought some of the girls in the theater were going to pass out.  lol    PLEAAAAASEEEEEEE. 

  Deena mentioned something about "being part of history".  lol  Apparently this "Twilight" movement is quite large.  Dione and Mariah missed out – they decided at the last minute to rent a movie.  I guess they will just have to read about the "historic" moment on my blog.

  I will say this 🙂  – we did have a good time and I have to admit it was an "interesting" experience. 

  Perhaps next weekend we can go see "Bolt".
