On Fridays I wanted to do something a little different then what I normally do. I decided that on Fridays I'm going to do movie reviews. I'm hoping to review mostly movies adapted from books, but I'm sure other movies that were not based on books will pop up every now and then. Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of chillin with the girls.
So what was everyone doing approximately two weeks ago...if you were like me you were analyzing Breaking Dawn Part I. I'm going to cheat a little and instead of writing a true review of the movie I'm going to ask you some questions. Have you seen the movie yet (why or why not)? Did you like it? What changes from the book did you like and which ones were you upset about?
Of course since I'm asking you these questions I should probably answer them myself as well. Yes I did see the movie (otherwise this post would either be all crazy talk or none existent). As for my opinion of the movie, I have to say that I genuinely did like it. I did not enjoy the first two Twilight movies. As many of you know as cute as Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart are, I don't believe they are the most talented actors. I was pleasantly surprised by the Eclipse movie, but I wonder if some of that has to do with my expectations being so low. Breaking Dawn Part I was fun and fresh. Of course there was the tortured, brooding vampire thing but other than that it was lighter and more full of life than the other movies. I must say that I loved Jacob in this movie. Taylor Lautner brought Jacob to life in a way that hasn't happened before. I felt his pain and his compassion. He made the movie for me.
The movie itself was gorgeous. The settings were brilliant and I wouldn't mind a husband who brought me to a private island for our honeymoon either. The costumes were to die for. They were completely gorgeous (well at least for the first half).
As for the changes I loved that they made fun of Renesmee's name. It was so funny that they were joking about it. For everything else I'm not quite sure how I felt about the changes. I think I need to see the movie a couple of more times before I decide if they worked or not.
