Mindy's Movie Reviews

A blog that went from discussing about the writing life to reviews of movies


I have always loved seeing how novels are turned into movies. Well to be frank, I love movies period, whether they're good or terribly bad. I will always find some sort of love for every movie. I still don't know why I do that but I do.

Anyways I am so excited right now and had no clue what to write for this weeks blog except for me blabbing about Eclipse.

Yes...Yes....I'm a Twilight-a-holice...or a Twilighter....or whatever you call the fans of the ever so popular series. Just a small note though, I'm not one of those CRAZY fans. Sure I have a poster of Edward aka Robert Pattinson in my room (and boy it's a creepy yet yummy poster) and I have the poster for New Moon upon my door. Oh I also have postcards of the cover from each book on the side of my movie shelf and I also made sure the first thing I did when I woke up when The New Moon dvd came out, was head straight to Walmart. I think I went in my pjs too but I'm not obsessed at all. Oh how can I forget about my New Moon collector cards! I should take pictures to share with you all!

Anyways I'm going to the movie tonight at midnight and I'm excited! I'm going with my mother, my neighbour and my neighbour's friend.

As a writer myself I always wondered what it would be like to not only have your entire series on the best seller list, or have crazily devoted fans of your work but also have big time movies being made about your literature which is like a baby growing up for the author. It brings me so much inspiration and I would LOVE to have something I wrote be put into a movie some day in my lifetime.

Anyway I'll let you know what I think of the movie without giving any details at the very end of this post, tomorrow morning.

Edit: Okay so I went to see it and I thought it was pretty good. A little gruesome with some of the fights but still barely managed to keep it's rating of PG here in Canada. The people I went with and I noticed all the wigs all the actors were wearing and yes they were that noticeable. That would've been a great drinking game. Take a swig if someone in the scene is wearing a wig. Of course Robert Pattinson wasn't wearing one but the amount of body hair he's growing else where is almost making him look like a wolf. (Don't get me wrong I love that guy to pieces!!!) The fight scenes with the werewolves were great!

The best part of the night was when I bought my Twilight Saga: Eclipse Collector's Cup!!! I was afraid there weren't going to be any left as there was two theatres sold out and everyone was in line to get one. Here's a picture of it...Ha you can see my bird Rocky staring at it. He thinks I'm crazy.

Enjoy the movie Mindy.

I've seen the commercials and I've read a few things on the internet, but I've not read the books and I won't be seeing the movies. Guess I'm definitely in the minority on this one, eh?
