It seemed like it was just a short time ago that I met up with Claire and Rebecca T. to see a little movie called, "Twilight." The film, based on Stephanie Meyer's best-selling series went on to become a pop-culture phenomenon. However, it's been a few years since then. The fifth and final film, "Breaking Dawn: Part 2," was released last week soared to become the number one film last weekend. Did the film live up the sales and the hype?
Eileen: "Breaking Dawn: Part II was definitely the best of all the movies. I had higher hopes for this film than the others because it was my favorite part of the books, but i was definitely blown away. Kristen Stewart actually did well this time, and the twist at the end was perfect."
Grammy T: "I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Yes, I screamed at the appropriate times and my daughters laughed at me. I would go see it again . . . and probably scream again."
Jess B. "I thought it was the best movie out of all of them. The ending had me yelling at the screen. I think Jasmina, Joanna, and myself almost killed half the theater when it happened. Thank goodness for 81mg Aspirin or my heart condition may have actually taken me out. All in all I think it was very well put together, and to top it all off Kristen Stewart actually did a good job!"
Rebecca: "I don't want to give anything away, but the twist toward the end blew my mind and I thought was really well executed. It was a fun movie and a good ending to the set. I think it was my favorite of them all so far!"
The twist near the end blew me away too! I was enraged but then the twist made so much sense that I believe this film was better than the latter half of the novel which it is based on. My favorite film in the "Twilight" series was "New Moon," but I loved this one. Not only did it have action and romance, it also had humor. The scene where Jacob reveals his secret to Charlie, will have you laughing out loud.
Speaking of laughing out loud, Alan shared his summary of "Breaking Dawn: Part 2" with us. "These shiny guys continued getting in fights with these hairy guys over this morose chick that one of the shiny guys knocked up and stuff. And it snowed."
As you can see, we all enjoyed "Breaking Dawn: Part 2." Did you see it? What did you think?
