A few weeks ago V and I went and saw a scary movie and while I was buying tickets the cashier asked if I was interested in purchasing tickets for an 8pm 1-day early showing of Breaking Dawn? That's like asking if I'm addicted to scrapbooking - a big resounding yes!!! So together we got 16 tickets for us and our friends - goodness knows there are some major Twihards around here!
At long last the night arrived. Not wanting to end up in the front row, V and I left at 5:15pm to get in line. We sat outside on our bums until 6:45 and chitted and chatted and got super psyched for the movie.
Once they let us in the theater we literally dove into two rows and practically stripped off all our clothes and belongings to save 16 seats. There were sweaters and purses and shoes and snacks all over!
Some kid was shining a stupid laser at the screen during the previews, but V stepped it up and told him to put it away or else. You go girl :)
After what seems like an hour of previews (though, there are some hopefully great movies coming out soon!), the show began.
I went in with zero expectations. Breaking Dawn is definitely my least favorite of the series so I didn't have high hopes for the movie. But I must say it was super entertaining. I laughed a lot (Charlie's reactions to things and Jessica's wedding speech). I almost cried (Bella and Edward "hearing" the baby and Jacob imprinting - which I thought was going to be super awkward but it was actually awesome) and I thought WTH a few times (the wolves "talking" to each other - SO WEIRD!). I was super impressed with Kristen Stewart's acting. She really nailed the feelings and emotions of pregnancy, even though hers went ultra fast. The way they made her look so sick and emaciated was brilliant. Edward is still fugly. I'm sorry, but Robert Pattinson just doesn't do it for me in the slightest. I'm totally team Jacob in the movies. I love how it ended and I love how graphic they got during the birth. I'm all about the supernatural :)
Afterwards we all lined up for a photo op with the display boards.
Twas a fun evening with the gals!
Now we just have to wait an ENTIRE YEAR for the second half!
PS - Chris totally ditched me this morning at 8:45am to go see it with one of his buddies. Is that hilarious or what?
