SO I SAW BREAKING DAWN
twilight lolcat

...and it was pretty much what I expected, everything a Breaking Dawn movie had to be and could not help but be, etc. Given that 1) the book is what it is and 2) the filmmakers have always been under order to be scrupulously faithful to it, it's... it just is, okay? It is a filmed experience of the book, which says pretty much everything you need to know about it. Also, maybe I just feel such monumental pity for the kid that I didn't even think Taylor Lautner was bad. The imprinting itself was somehow as tasteful as Melissa Rosenberg could think to write it, and my audience was, as Twilight audiences in Birmingham have always somehow been, worshipfully quiet, so I didn't get the enjoyment of listening to the entire theater freak out. The closest they got was some knowing "Ohhhhh, here we go"-type laughter right as Jacob approached the baby. They didn't even have an audible reaction to the vampire caesarean.

Also, stay for an extra scene in the middle of the credits, because Aro is my spirit guide.



@cleolinda: All right. Time to chagrin my dazzle. Pray for me. #leavingthehouseomg #breakingdawn #sparklemas

@ladonnapietra: @cleolinda And yea, though you walk through the valley of the reflection of sparkles...

@particle_person: @cleolinda Best wishes! May you not see anything unseeable or hear the unhearable!

@cleolinda: Oh, I've seen leaked stuff. It's too late for that.

@particle_person: I meant the audience, actually. ;-)

@cleolinda: HAAAAAAAA

@cleolinda: Well, my purse and I got the front row, at least.

@cleolinda: (I will not be live tweeting. The lights haven't even gone down yet, we've got a few minutes to kill.)

@cleolinda: Wtf? RT @alierakieron: My SiL had someone faint on top of her at last night's show. Usher said it was the second one of the night.


...


@cleolinda: Well, that happened. You guys, I think I can do this. #thatofwhichwedonotspeak #breakingdawn #sparklemas



So I'm going to be writing as fast as I can for the next couple of days, because I think I can do this, possibly, in a semi-timely fashion--I basically sat there thinking a Fifteen Minutes the whole time, although, fuck my life, I forgot to bring any paper for notes. Well, I may be seeing it again tomorrow, so. I have thought of--I won't say a "gimmick," exactly, but a unifying, running joke, like the Viking saga in Eclipse, that will probably help me through a lot of it. You don't have to have one, but it helps you approach a scene you get stuck on from a different perspective. AND GOD KNOWS I WILL NEED IT.

Jesus, my head hurts.

SPARKLE OUT.

If I had been sitting closer to the back of the theater, I would have been more tempted to live tweet the entire thing. I wanted SO BADLY to comment on the heels Alice had Bella wearing (they looked so 80s!), the dress (OH GOD, BELLA'S WEDDING DRESS), and that nightmare she had before the wedding (that... was kind of delightfully creepy). Instead, all I did was talk about the trailers (I squealed out loud when The Avengers trailer came on, and for some reason we got the trailer for the first RDJ Sherlock Holmes movie) and listen to the audience reaction.

There were some people next to me who were laughing at various points ("There are things I haven't told you." "What, you're not a virgin?") and were "Eww"ing their way through the birth scene. I have to say, the pregnancy parts were appropriately creepy. Scary-skinny Bella? EEEEEUGH.

(There were some lovely close-ups of Kristen, though. Maan, she is pretty.)

The trailers were BADASS. I cried through The Hunger Games again. THE WOMAN IN BLACK OMG. We didn't get the Avengers, but we got the second Sherlock Holmes, and Man on a Ledge actually looks kind of good in an "I will totally throw up the whole way through this" kind of way.

I was SO MAD that my theater did not get Hunger Games. I would have probably had my other cry moment at that.

i didn't got trailer. :(

cause the theater i go is the small independent theater that also shows big budget movies, but never gets trailers instead we get car oil comercials and the like.

I would have LOVED to see the hunger games trailer in the big screen, as well as the BRAVE one (which apparently was also in for some reason)

the woman in black.... while DanR looks fantastic in it, and it looks like it could be an incredible movie.... i didn't want to watch the trailer and get nightmares (again- possessed dolls= my nightmare fuel)

speaking of nightmare fuel Not one of my friends warned me about Bella's pre-wedding nightmare where she and Edward kill/eat/stand on the pile of bloodied corpses of all of bella's friends/family.

i had to bite down my tongue not to scream because i was not expecting that and it was disturbing.


You got the Hunger Games? I hate you. I got Man on a Ledge, something avbout random energy aliens, and a bunch of stuff I wasn't interested in.
