The next movie saga will be here before we know it, and Iím not sure if Iím ready yet to watch the flick. Of course, I have every intention of seeing the movie with my friends, but I donít want to waste the opportunity by not being fully prepared Ė and I encourage you to do the same.
Buy Tickets NOW
If you plan to see the movie in the first day or two that itís out, you need tickets now. Today. Right this minute. Go online and buy them ahead of time so that your spot is reserved. Unlike so many of my friends that want to see the movie in the first nanosecond that its released, Iím going to wait a few days and see it when I (hopefully) donít have to literally rub elbows and shoulders with every vampire fanatic in the area. But then again, I might give in and go to a midnight showing if I can still get tickets.
Read the BookÖ.Again
Iíll make the bold assumption that youíve read the book. If thatís the case you must absolutely read it again. If you havenít read it the first time Ė stop reading this and read that instead. You only have a small amount of time to get it read, so grab your copy of New Moon
and take it with you everywhere to be sure that you get it all read and know every nuance of the plot details. Iíll admit I reread it just last week, and Iíve already noticed a major discrepancy between the book and what Iíve seen in the trailersÖbut Iíll let you see what you can find. Itís possible I just need to read it a third time to check again.
Since New Moon
picks up just a few months after the end of Twilight
, you need to watch it again, too. Reading is, of course, the best course of action, but if you donít have time to read Twilight
again, you can cheat and watch the movie. The best option is to do both. Read Twilight
. Watch the movie. Read New Moon
. Watch the movie. Itís fun to watch Twilight
again looking for leads and hints about how things will go in the movie. There are a few I picked up on while I was watching the movie a few days ago.
Get a Movie Buddy
If you havenít already, be sure you have a movie buddy who is just as prepared as you are. For something this big, you donít want to have to deal with someone who just doesnít get it. You need someone there who can understand whatís happening without extra explanations. After all, you donít want to be disturbed during the showing and you certainly want someone to rehash the experience with after the show. Nothing is more frustrating that trying to talk details when someone else is stuck on basic plot pointsÖ ďSoÖwas that guy a werewolf or something?Ē Be sure your friend is as prepared as you are. Youíll regret it otherwise.
