"Breaking Dawn" Movie Release Fever

OK. I have to admit I am neither pro- or against Twilight. The first time I read the book, I finished the series in flat 4 days along with the first two movies. (Yeah, I forgot I needed to sleep as well. I literally adapted our beloved vampire lifestyle! LOL). I enjoyed the books thoroughly and loved Edward. Jacob was mostly irritating to me butting in to their cute love story. But that doesn't mean I liked all the books.

"Breaking Dawn" for one was a disappointment for me. I kept feeling it was written because it "had" to be written. For most part, especially Bella's pregnancy (did I mention how difficult it was for me to go through the cruel pregnancy stage?) was a stretch. The only thing which saved the book for me was Jacob's narration in the first part. It was funny to say the least with noteworthy chapter titles! I am sure I would have not completed it if it was Bella narrating it. It would be too much of self-pity! 

But I liked the movies. Partly because I could get to see Robert Pattinson and I really liked the last movie "Eclipse". I think it had some good action. My husband actually watched the movie breaking away from his dozing routine for these movies! I was looking forward to "Breaking Dawn" to see what other good things they did with it. 

But two movies for one essentially "no-story" book? I mean to think of it, there is hardly any story! Bella-Edward get married. She gets pregnant (:O). She won't abort. She struggles. She gives birth and turns in to a vampire. Then all happy. Till the baby is reported to Volturi. Then the marketing to gain to support for Renessme. And then the fight! There are other tid-bits too but two two-hour long movies??! What are they going to show us?? 

I for one isn't too excited and my husband gave a relieved sigh when I told him I am not going to watch the first day first show (which I do for every HP and Twlight movie!).  AMC is already doing a month's advanced booking for the movie! I mean, really? Are the fans that excited? What do you think about it?

  1. Personally, I couldn't read the first book and haven't even attempted to read the others (unlike my 22 year old daughter and 22 year old niece). Both have children of their own and are planning to get baby sitters (their husbands...lol) to watch the kids while they go to the midnight showing. Me? I'll be glad to wait until it comes out on DVD or my husband can download it :)

    For once in my life, I can honestly say that the movie is much better than the book...

  2. LOL...I feel the same. The fact that the movie is more a milking cow than anything else is a bit offputting. For HP 7, it needed two movies cos the book was huge! But this one? Glad to know I am not the only one feeling this way! :)

  3. Umm...*hangs head in shame*

    I'm excited. I mean, I'm not going to go watch on opening day or anything, but I do want to check it out Thanksgiving weekend or something. LOL

    I'm looking forward to seeing how the no story plays out. :P
