Finally....its over! It's done! WOOT WOOT!

Don't get me wrong, I do like the Twilight movies. I do like the books, but I can't be more happy that it is finally done and over with. I had started on this journey many, many years ago when the book first came out. I read the first three in now time at all. By the time I put down the third book, I realized that the Twilight book was gaining momentum in the world. It was all the rave! Then finally they announced they were making the movies. I was as giddy as a Catholic girl finally graduating and heading to a big name college and joining the sorority.


The first movie, Twilight:
Gahhh. I nearly gave up on the movies. I did announce to my friends I would not see anymore if they allowed that director to run the scene. To my luck they changed directors.

New Moon:
Much, much, much better. Though some of the acting was to be desired. *cough* Kristen Stewart *cough*. Plus I nearly threw up my popcorn when good ol' Robbie took off his shirt. Gah. However, the fluffly werewolves made their debut and I couldn't be happier.

Favorite book and favorite far...I of course love the werewolves.

Breaking Dawn part 1:
Not too bad. Slightly bored through it. Click THIS to go to my review. I did give it four stars though. ^.^**

The moment I walked out of the theater, my first thought was, "Wow...that was a great fight scene!" Who comes out of a romance movie and thinks that first? Ha. But it really was amazing. The effects were fantastic I loved how well the snow and the grey sky added to the feel the fighting. Even though a couple times, the wolves seemed very fake, but oh well. Besides for that I applaud the special effects team!

The acting took a left turn entirely. Kristen Stewart actually expressed emotions and give fluctuations to her voice. It was nice. Though she's suppose to be a vampire and void of normal human emotions and she had more emotions then when she was a human. Funny, eh? She still should go to acting school though. Mhmm. Everyone of the rather large cast did a fantastic job. I also give credit to the script-writers...they did a fabulous job. I should label this as a comedy, because they had many jokes that made me hoot with laughter.

Though the cast was rather large, the writers did a fine job incorporating them into the story. Its very difficult, but they did well. They also did well with having a side-romance bloom and blossom. I don't recall that in the book, but oh well. It was a cute add. ^.^

Okay, time for the opposite side of the pillow....

It was extremely choppy at bits. It was rather annoying and I feel bad for those that had not read the book, because they would be lost. I found myself lost at a point or two and had to ask Sarah or Jessica what was going on. It's been a while since I've read the book *hides*, so don't hate me! Haha.

*SPOILER ALERT*I was rather upset at how they down-played Bella's powers of protection. It rather annoyed me! In the book, she was able to protect anyone within a five foot radius (or something like that) and they made it seem she could only protect one person at a time. Also, the scene where she learned how to control her power lasted five minutes. Quite literally. However, it took her until the arrival of Volturi. * SPOILER ALERT*

In the end, I feel like it was the second best out of all the movies. I feel like they sent some of the actors to acting camp. I'm so glad they included Stephanie Meyer, the author, in the movie. I feel like her influence helped the film. I would recommend this to those that have read the books or seen the past movies. Out of five stars I grant this four stars.

Would I Watch Again?:
Like the first part...if someone wanted to watch it, sure; on my own? No.

Favorite Character(s): Jacob, Sam Uley, Benjamin (^.^ yummm), Emmett, Alice, Kate, Garrett (hilarious) and Seth (such a cutie)
Not-so Favorite Character(s): Bella (she was better, but still gah), Edward (again...better), and Jane (I hate that bitch).
Favorite Quote(s): "The Red Coats are coming. The Red Coats are coming" - Garrett

I've not read the books or watched any of the movies. I don't know why, but I have no drive to. I think it's all the hype over them. But so glad to see you enjoyed it. :)
