How to See New Moon and Not Kill Yourself

Okay ladies and gents, I know most of the people who read this blog are in their 20s, early 30s, and that age group that consists of our parents, BUT-

Don’t pretend like you’re not interested in seeing New Moon. Don’t even dare to play that “Too Cool” card. Because you will lose. So instead of delaying the inevitable, I’ve devised a pain-free way to see the cinematic equivalent of ripping off a bandaid. A very well-toned, awesomely scored, hello-kitty bandaid.

I took the kTrain to New Moon.

#1 Bring a Friend

This seems like obvious advice, but really, it is the most important thing on this list. Without the guffawing of a friend, you’ll feel pressured to take this movie seriously.

Vampire Stuck in a Tree

I encourage all of you to see the movie “Twilight” because its was first 11 bucks I spend in a theatre not regretting the purchase in an eternity. It’s very romantic. It’s not scary but its shot like it is, pale and anemic like a vampire. I think you should see it in theatres, it’s shot on 35mm. 2:35: 1

Big, blown up, awesome.

37 million dollar budget

69 million dollars in bumps the first weekend!

We have to talk about the soundtrack too– I’ll get to that later.
