Don't know how or why blogger picked that exact moment to inflict its wrath. But it did.
And I was angrier than a power hungry Strigoi about that missing post. (See what I did there? Eh?) *slaps head* See?? See what you get since my original post was lost to cyber space? Stupid humor. Just pay that one forward.
Now really moving forward and away from that rant ...
Let's get to the real issue at hand here. The Vampire Academy teaser.
First, let me just point out (which you've probably already figured out) that I love the VA series. Team Dimitri all the way (I mean come on that Russian accent... *sigh* ) Erhmm...anyway, I did not realize the first teaser was out till I stumbled upon it yesterday.
And a total internal fangirl freakout happened in my kitchen. Internal because nobody else in my house understands the awesomeness that is Richelle Mead.
|Zoey Deutch will be playing Rose in the movie.|
First Reaction: What the heck was the that? THAT is nothing like the book!
Yea, I was upset. Quite a bit actually.
Everything just felt wrong.
After a break, I finally convinced myself to rewatch the trailer.
And guess what, it actually grew on me.
Second Reaction: That wasn't as bad as I first imagined. Okay, okay, I admit I still cringe a bit when Rose gives Lissa blood and then says, "What are friends for?" But that aside, I realized that scenes showcased sorta DO parallel the book. The fight scenes might actually be pretty B.A.
But overall, the teaser made me excited for the movie.
And *gasp* that means that it is doing its job.
Do I think they could have chose different music? Chose a different scenes? Portrayed the book in a bit of different light? Sure. But at the same time --- and this is key -- it is just a short teaser.
And that is what I need to remember. I was judging short clip too harshly. I am still excited for the movie in Feburary. Maybe a bit nervous, but pumped to see all my favorites on the big screen.
Who knows? I may watch it a third time and move from acceptance to fangirl agian.
Come on VA, don't let me down.
edit-- The trailer has now officially grown on me. No, it wasn't what I first expected, but that doesn't mean that it is bad. In fact, it means the director and writers had some new inspiration, interpretations, and thoughts about the movie then me. And that's okay. This movie still promises to be awesome and I cannot wait till February 2014.
Have you watched VA teaser yet?
