Earlier this week, I received a text from my friend Kevin Winston who runs a technology & media networking group called Digital LA, saying "Are you by any chance a Twilight fan, and would you want to see an early private screening put on by Time Warner Cable?" ..... "And would you admit to it on twitter?"
Unlike a vampire, who is constantly trying to bury his hunger for destruction and while brooding and handsome, a wee bit whiny and likely manipulative, a werewolf has two very hunky sides. While he might be a little bit cautious of his own power, he isn't really afraid of it.
If you still aren't sure what I mean, here's a comparative list.
A quick non spoiler review of the flick....
A lot magical, a bit of hot burly shirtless Jacob, a little terrifying, a tad cheesy, a heavy dose of questionable stereotyping, heart pumping kissing and tail kicking..... Basically a perfect fairytale.
It was great fun to watch the movie in a room full of passionate fans. We cheered, we laughed, my seat mate (a long lost friend from high school) cried. There really is nothing to replace the experience of watching a movie in a theater.
Of course, watching the other ones at home On Demand, curled up on the couch in front of a fire in nothing but blankets sounds like a pretty good plan for this rainy LA weekend.
