AND. IT. WAS. AWESOME.
I am by no means a fan of Twilight. I like my vampires deadly and hot--not chivalrous and pointy. (Damon, anyone? Hellooooo, Elena? Wake up!!!). I'm Team Jacob and wish that Edward would have just stayed in Alaska after book two....lol. But alas, my opinion is the lesser of the two and Edward won out. Poo. But watching each movie yesterday--all in a row--I began to enjoy Edward more (plus, Robert grew up a little and filled out better by the last movie). As a character he grew more commanding, and had less fear of "hurting Bella" every five minutes after she became a red-eyed demon. I also liked Bella better as a vampire--she was right, she must have been born to be one. As a human she was flipping annoying.
Another high point was that I'd never finished the books. I got so annoyed at them that by the first third of Breaking Dawn I was totes done-ola watching Jacob be tormented (poor sweet doggie). So I went into Part 2 of Breaking Dawn the movie, as a virgin of "the point of it all." Which made the whole thing LOADS more entertaining. Especially listening to the audience as the "alternative ending" unfolded. LOL...the loud gasps and NOOOOOs were priceless (go see it if you wanna know what I mean; no spoilers here).
So, all-in-all I was quite pleased. I watched all the drama and drank Margaritas ALL DAY LONG. A story-lovers dream day. :) And I promise: to lovers of the Saga, or those like me that were, like, meh....you will thoroughly enjoy the final installment of The Twilight Saga.
Happy movie watching,
