Team Jacob

When I entered the midnight showing of NEW MOON, I was an Edward Fan, always had been...but NEW MOON transformed me - into a Jacob Fan. Blasphemy! How could I so carelessly switch sides so fast!?! Easy: Jacob is simply hotter, nicer, less awkward, and more alive than Edward. I never picked this fact up while reading the books, but after seeing the movie, I finally realized why the Team Jacob existed. I was pleasantly surprised with Taylor Lautner's performance and accomplished exactly what the NEW MOON novel wanted: you should want Jacob as much as Edward, if not more. The movie was faaaarrr better than Twilight, although I still say they need to tone down R.Pattz' makeup...its making him less attractive to me. Anywho I cannot wait for eclipse to come out - its supposed to be this summer!
What did y'all think of NEW MOON?
Here is my New Moon playlist - songs about moons, werewolves, blood, and twilight:
1. Full Moon – The Black Ghosts
2. Werewolf - Cocorosie
3. Fresh Blood - Eels
4. Blood Bank – Bon Iver
5. Moon - Sia
6. Twilight – The Raveonettes
7. Moonlight Fantasy – The Golden Filter
8. You’re A Wolf – Sea Wolf
9. Twilight – Vanessa Carlton
10. Exit Music – Vampire Weekend
**Also check out the OST for the movie, it has some really great new indie music on it

^^^ HOTTT (literally and figuratively haha)!!!

I've always been "Team Jacob"! Ever since the books came out. There's just something so rugged and kind about his character! *sigh*

I had the exact same realization while watching the movie last night! I used to be an unwavering member of team Edward, but after seeing the movie it completely changed my mind.

I Seen It Last Night And I'm Still Team Edward. I Must Admit, Jacob's Six-Pack Caught My Eye More Than Once. Still, Team Edward All The Way!

Cara said...

I've always felt equally about Edward and Jacob. However, after the movie I think I like Taylor more than Rob!
P.S. OST is amazing! I'm particularly obsessed with the Thom Yorke song.

Erika said...

I've not read the books, or seen the films, so I feel like I'm Team no one. Scratch that - I read about 200 pages of Twilight and liked Edward quite a bit, but I can't say that I'm all for him, as I was hardly introduced to Jacob. the playlist. I heart Vampire Weekend! :)

LAUREN said...

I can't wait to see the movie! I enjoyed Twilight more than I thought I would... but I haven't read New Moon yet. Should I see the movie or read the book first?
And Jacob Black beats Edward Cullen any day!

oo glad to hear it was good!

Miri said...

Team Jacob! Heck yeah!!!! Edward is creepy and pale and a big stalker. I can't wait to see that movie!

By the way, I looove your blog! I've actually been reading it for awhile and now I made an account so I can comment! Woohoo!! I love the fashion posts and all that jazz.

Jacob is everything a guy should be and more, I've been a fan since the beginning and the movie just made me more sure of it :)

Jazz Kate said...

I wasn't converted completely, but that's probably only because I don't consider the movies much of an authority compared to the books. If we're talking purely movies... mmm, Jacob.

I couldn't help laughing at the slow-mo scene when Edward takes of his shirt during his suicide attempt... it was very suspenseful... and then.. disappointment. Must say I liked RPattz better in Harry Potter. :P

And yes, this one was much better than Twilight was!

little mermaid said...

I read the 4 books already and always felt way more drawn to Jacob than Edward... I'm totally a Jacob girl.. and once the movies came out and saw Jacob in the flesh.. WOW!.. I don't regret my past choice.. he's so much hotter than Edward.

I went to go see the midnight showing when it came out here in the UK, and I really liked it, but some parts were soooo awwwwkward.
The whole cinema was laughing at some pieces of bad acting, and the moment Alice had a vision of Edward & Bella running through the forest had everyone in giggles.
My favourite part? Marcus' giant man hands. Try holding your hands in weird claw-paws, saying "You already know what you are going to do, Aaaaaaaro"

Team Jacob!! I've always been one and I'll never change that but I couldn't say why I was one. While reading your post I was nodding and thinking "That's WHY I'm team Jacob!" :)
