Dear Twilight the Movie,

Dear Twilight the Movie,


I wish you well on your opening day. I hope you crank out enough ticket sales to warant a sequel or two or three. I shamefully admit, I am dying to come and watch you. Me, the 28 year old amongst the sea of screaming tweens. I am dying to experience the chemistry between Edward and Bella, to watch the action scenes unfold and point out parts of the book. I feverishly pray that my heart will twist and jump just as it did while reading the books. I want to compare and contrast you to the books. I want to observe all the details, take in every inch of the scenry and commit it to memory so when I re-read the books I can picture it all.

I would love nothing more than to sit down in a cold dark room with you, snuggle into the plush velvet seats and wrap myself in a thick sweater. I want to gorge on candy and soda while losing myself in your plot. I feverishly wish I could cry with emotion you and gasp in suspense when you surprise me.

Regretfully, I don't see this happening anytime soon. The absence of a trusty babysitter and lack of funding prohibits my wishes to see you in person. I pray I don't get antsy and search you out on the internet. I hope I have the reserve to wait to see you in all your glory, on a 20 foot screen.

Please, be patient with me.

Thank you,
SuZ


P.S. I swear I'm not obesessive with you, I just needing a little excitement in my life that doesn't revolve around snot, poop or tamper-tantrums.

The good news is that given the anticipation and the legion of fans... I think you'll be ok. I think Twilight will wait for you. And unfortunately I think you're right that this is not a movie to take a small child to ;)

Mandy said...

I have not read these yet...I want to read them before I see the movie.

I think I may be renting it when it is out on DVD!

Karol said...

Oh, how I hope that you get your moment to 'throw' yourself into the movie. That whole babysitter thing, yeah, that sucks!

Lump said...

I won't be seeing this movie this weekend either... :(

Ohhhhhhhh, 28 is nothing...there are "girls" who work with me (47 & 55) who can't wait to see it! I, had never heard of it before so now I have a lot of reading to do!

M ^..^

As one crazy person who braved the tweens and the late hour, I can tell you...it's not as great as I had hoped! I blogged about it but you might not want to read what I thought...Sorry!

Rebecca said...

HAHAHA! Love it! I am right there with you!

That is a great letter. We have a lot in common.

1. I am 33 and not scared to go sit in the middle of all the tweens to see Edward and Bella.

2. I can not yet go see the movie. I am just on the first book and not done with it yet. I am afraid I will be waiting for the DVD.

3. No babysitters and in much need of some excitement having nothing to do with kids.

Take me with you! I'm a 28 year old mommy without a babysitter as well. :( I would LOVE to be able to go to a movie spur of the moment!

Holy Crap..I couldn't agree more..as much as I'm dying to see this movie...I just don't think it's possible with a teething baby on my hands. I might have to wait until this one is available to rent...I'm totally obsessed with the books!

Pink Ink said...

I went and saw it yesterday and it stayed pretty faithful to the book and the tension between Bella and Edward was palpalable (spelling?) Ad yes, the tweens squealed in the background!

I SO feel your pain on the babysitter thing. We never did have one, and finally our son is 15, the other is 14 and my daughter is 8 and we go out a little as money allows. So, there will come a day, and just hold on to the thought that Twilight on DVD with SPECIAL features will also be awesome!
