Thanksgiving night I was able to check out the latest Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 movie and I’m SO glad I did! :)
Had you of asked me a few years ago if I would be a fan of the Twilight Saga, I would have said no…however…I’m addicted. :) My sister got me to watch the first movie a few Christmases ago and I believe I was hooked instantly. I then read every book, caught up with the movies, and then I was able to watch the last 3 movies in the theaters.
It’s hard for me to decide if I like the movies better than the books or vice-versa. I like aspects of both that make them both worth looking into. The books are very well written and I like the actors that portray the characters in the movies.
While I wasn’t a huge fan of Breaking Dawn Part 1, I LOVED Part 2. :) There were too many “cheesy” parts in Part 1 that I wasn’t a fan of, but Part 2 was very well put together. In the books, I didn’t like the idea of the whole Jacob and Renesmee *thing* because I thought it was too weird, but in the movie it was played out very well that it made sense and didn’t seem too creepy. It had been a while since I read Breaking Dawn, so I don’t completely remember the minor details to compare it to the movie, but there are some obvious parts that they changed in the movie to make it better than the book!
And hello…the ending was AMAZING! :)
When people ask me if the Twilight Saga is too “vampire-y,” I say no. However, I do not think the last few Twilight movies are made for young children. There are some scenes that are questionable and I wouldn’t even think to take a child to see the movies, but the movies aren’t too graphic by any means for an adult.
I’m kind of sad it’s over, but now it makes me that more excited for The Hunger Games! :)
Did you see Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2? If so, what did you think of it?
