Today was the day that my girls and I have been waiting for...the release of Breaking Dawn-Part 1!!! The three of us really hate this picture, but since it looks like we are a part of the Cullen clan with our vampire eyes...we thought it was appropriate for the occasion :-)
So yeah...do you see those big ass glasses of wine of in front of us? We were able to sip on those while we watched the movie. And we may have ordered a second...you know...just because we could. I'm pretty sure we will be seeing EVERY movie here from now on :-)
So speaking of the movie...I have to say that overall, I loved it. Yes, there were lots of things missing from the book and I didn't really care for a lot of the werewolf scenes. I thought some of the special effects were a bit corny and it was tough to watch Bella in her gruesome state towards the end.
BUT...after I got done complaining about all that, I realized that I had to look at the movie for what it is. Movies rarely live up to the book and after waiting a year and a half for this movie to come out...I think my expectations were too high. I also had to remember that this movie was PG13 so the honeymoon love scene could not compare to my imagination. Haha! In fact, when it was over, Tara and Linsey and I looked at each other and said, "That was it?"
But on a bright note, the wedding scene was fantastic. I didn't care for Bella's dress, but she looked gorgeous and so did Edward (and Jacob. Ha!) I loved that they used the same song they danced to at the prom in the first movie for their wedding song. I almost got a little teary eyed at that part :-)
Okay...I realize that all of you non-Twilight fans like my hubby are making fun of me now, so I should probably end this post. I will say though that I'm a little sad that we have to wait another YEAR to see the second part. But judging by how fast this year went, the three of us will be in our Twilight shirts before we know it :-)
