"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?
