|Aro made me laugh out loud AND he's strangely hot in this film!|
Why? I can't remember.
I guess it's partially due to the abundance of books available today to that age group. I mean, seriously? If Harry Potter was available when I was in middle/high school...I probably never would have gone outside. Or, if I did make it outdoors, it would have been with a book in my hand.
Dare I admit that I didn't leave my house all that often as a grown-up because I was reading so many young adult books?
As soon as I read the first page of Twilight, I was hooked. Ask my husband. I walked around with that book, and all the books after it, all over my house with my head down. For a few weeks, not much else was getting done.
I had the advantage of being able to read one book, watch the movie, then move on to the next.
Until Breaking Dawn.
I rented the first part through the good ole Red Box. I liked it. A lot.
The movies were vastly improving over the years.
Then I started seeing Facebook statuses and tweets about how all these people were going to the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn 2. I tried not to show my jealousy.
Last Tuesday, I was sitting in my office. The day was beyond slow. I picked up my phone and texted my boss that he should let me go to the movies. I said it was like a calling. He responded with like 20 minutes to spare until the movie was set to start. I drove over 100 MPH to get to the theater. But I made it. Take THAT!
Once the previews were over and the movie started I got butterflies. No, seriously, I did.
I don't want to ruin the film for anyone who hasn't seen it. Let me just say I didn't want it to end. You know, because it was the actual end. An end of an era.
I didn't find a lot of cheese factor to this movie, like the others.
The beginning and middle were riveting.
The END though is where it's at. And that's all I'm going to say.
For Twihards everywhere...you will not be disappointed. And if you are? Then you have no soul. HA! I'm kidding. Well, maybe I'm not. Not everyone can be pleased.
Once the credits started rolling, people all around me were getting up to leave. And I was all, "You idiots! This is the last movie...you're going to miss shit!" And shit they missed. Yes...the credits were even fun.
So yeah...I recommend the movie. Very highly. What I don't recommend is seeing any of the movies without reading the books. The movies cannot hold their own. Not even a little. Of course the books are better but the twists on the final film are worth the $7 I paid to catch a matinee.
I wonder what Edward is doing, right now...
