The One with Breaking Dawn Part 1


Friday, November 18, 2011

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?

  6. I was going to ask why no Breaking Dawn countdown on your blog. (It was my favorite book because it is closest to my stage of life.) Okay, maybe Edward isn't your cup of tea, but Jacob has one of the funniest looking faces I've ever seen!

  7. 1. i TOTES would have told that kid off too. besides, everyone knows the previews are half the fun of going to movies in the first place.
    2. i can't believe you are a team jacob girl. i'm a bit disappointed, ha
    3. what part does the movie end? i could have sworn it would have been right after she gave birth or something.
    4. you're giving me all the details that you can when you get here.
    5. i love that chris went to go see it. there is no way eric would do that. i'm going to have to drag him with me for sure!

  9. I was at the early 8:00 showing here! I loved the movie too and loved even more the ending. Did they show the preview for Hunger Games? They did here and it's another one I can't wait for!

  11. oh man guess I'm outnumbered cuz I have zero interest in the Twilight series (tried reading the book, got halfway and had no desire to continue) which is funny cuz when people say they aren't Harry Potter fans I look at them like they are certifiably insane which is probably what people think about me and Twilight... HAHAHAHA. but man it looked like so much fun and I'm so glad you guys all got to go together! fun times!!!

  12. TOTALLY team Jacob myself! Yes, Robert Patterson just doesn't do it....I agree with Louella I'm going to wait until it comes out on DVD, I just really DID NOT like the book....sounds like you had a great time!

  13. You guys are so cute!! I read the books, but I just can't get into it too much. But what a FUN girls outing! Would totally get into that!

  14. Glad you liked it! The awkward Charlie moments are always fun! :)

  15. Very cool! I'm surprised that I wasn't banging down the theatre doors to see it....what's with that ? I'm glad that you liked it..helps to get a review :-)

  16. First off... Oh.My.Gosh... Chris went and saw it with a friend?! SO funny! LOL!

    I haven't seen it yet, but I totally want to. I, also, have zero expectations. The other movies... the acting was SO bad in them, but I still loved them (in the theatre... hated them at home and couldn't even get through them! LOL).

    And this one, also my least favorite book (didn't even finish it), but I still totally want to see it. LOL. :-p I really want to know *when* in the book it ends. I thought it ended the second she has the baby, but now that you said that Jacob imprinted, it means it was after she had the baby, so now I'm super curious!

    And a whole year? Are you serious?!?! Ridiculous! Harry Potter was only 6 months... thank God! LOL. :-)

  19. Team Jacob all the way. When I read the books I found him to be a far more interesting character than Edward. All Edward seems to do is clench his jaw and grind his teeth. He's too angsty for me. :)
