Twilight Talk

(Jillian, Mary Beth, Me, Jessica, Sarah....and you're welcome for the blurriest picture of all time)

Have you seen Breaking Dawn: Part 2 yet?  I did, and I LOVED it!!  So let's talk Twilight....

  • I have never been more animated in a movie.  Throwing my hands up in the air, attempting to throw my Coke cup at the screen, the whole thing. 
  • You can say all you want to about Robert Pattinson (ahem..Noel) but he was really fantastic in this movie.
  • They made KStew look as good as they possibly could...so she did look better...bless her heart.
  • The girl who plays Irina (the blonde vampire who rats out the Cullens) is the same girl who plays the daughter in Taken.  Suppperrr annoying in both films.  
  • The guy who plays, Aro (leader of the Volturi) is dating Rachel McAdams.  I thought that maybe he was a ton cuter in real life.....but no.  I'm confused about Rachel's decision on this one.  Especially considering her past relationships.  I'm confused, Rachel!!!  Call me and let's talk about this.
  • I really liked seeing all the vampires come together and thought they were cast really well.
  • After the movie, they did a yearbook of sorts and gave credit to all the characters who had been in the Saga.  Great idea.  When they neared the end, and showed Taylor Lautner, I literally yelled out "wooooo!!!".  (Refer to bullet point 1)  I have no clue where that came from...but I'm glad it happened.
Was this one your favorite of the series?
Hope you all had a great weekend!

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm totally excited!!! I love Robert Pattison, and all things involving hot vampires. ;)

Megan said...

I haven't seen it yet and won't be until it comes out on Blu-Ray on Netflix, but I'm still totally beside myself with excitement. Robert Pattinson an Taylor Lautner - just hot hot! Plus - I love the story. :)

Heather said...

I saw it on Friday and LOVED IT! Aro was so flipping creepy - yes Rachel... what are you thinking!?

OH my word! I'm glad I was not the only one who thought the daughter in Taken was SO annoying!

I've been so back-and-forth about going to watch it. The movie theatres here (UAE) are so hit-or-miss. There is either a ton of talking or they blast the speakers (and your ear drums) to discourage all the chatting.

I may wait for it to be released on iTunes...or I may negotiate with hubs during one of our last doctor's visit drives to Dubai...maybe the theatres there are better than Abu Dhabi.
Considering I was there opening night for the other ones, it only seems right to finish the series...especially right before our little munchkin arrives next month!

EWWW Rachel McAdams, what are you thinking?! Gross.

Just saw the movie yesterday and I have to say it was not my favorite. I think I liked 1 and 2 best - this one just seemed like the acting and dialogue was really cheesy and forced. That said, Edward looked SMOKIN.

anna lizbeth said...

i am excited to see it.. but i am more excited now about the hunger game series!!

Ashlyn said...

I am cracking up over this recap. Especially the first two bullet points and shout out to Taylor :)

Seriously Rachel McAdams? What is going on?! She is the cutest girl and he...is not the cutest guy...

Brave Brooke said...

My little sister and I went on opening night and I was very pleasantly surprised. I love they stayed true to the story while still keeping us on our toes! I was very loud yelling "That didn't happen!!!!!" :)

Katie said...

Michael Sheen is awesome and an amazing actor. You have to see him on 30 Rock to appreciate him. He did Twilight because his daughter with Kate Beckinsale is a big fan.

Now you know that Twilight is not my jam, but even I can admit that was the end was wicked cool. And Aro's laugh was made of win. He looked like he was having the best time.

I also liked it when Bella beat up Jacob--actual emotion from KStew, I could not believe it!

TheTinyHeart said...

Going to see the movie this coming weekend! I had no idea Rachel McAdams was dating Aro and all I can say is EW.

So far my fav is still the original Twilight! Braking Dawn was my least fav book so I don't think I'm going to love it as much but at least there's good eye candy :)

rooth said...

Hah you crack me up! Thanks for all the celeb gossip

Brittany said...

I loved the "surprise" ending--probably the best part of the movie :)

The Aro/Rachel relationship kinda grosses me out...could have done without that info. Also, KStew needs to never be cast in another movie ever.

Have you read The Host (Stephanie Meyer) yet?

Baze Days said...

Did you know that Rachel McAdams boyfriend is also Kate Beckinsale's baby daddy? No joke. He must have a good personality.

Yesi said...

Glad you loved the movie <3 Have a great week <3

Haley W. said...

Ahhhh I haven't seen it yet!!! I think I'm gonna try to go on Saturday...I need R. Pattz back in my life. The first movie was on FX last night and naturally I watched the whole thing like I haven't already seen it 13098742 times...

Oh, oh, oh...had no idea Rachel had gone off the deep end. Yikes...dat ain't cute, honey :(

Hahaha, so glad you had a good weekend! xo

Elizabeth @ Southern Color said...

I haven't seen it yet, but clearly I need to jump on that bandwagon! Did you read the book first?

Krista said...

I get all hyped up when watching movies too :) I need to catch up on my Twilight and start the Hunger Games movie. If only my kids would nap longer!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

i haven't seen it yet, but another blogger had the same enthusiasm as you did. so glad you had a great time!

Emmy said...

Yes yes and yes!!

She is dating Aro? ewe that seems wrong. And yes totally wanted to scream and throw things at the screen at one point- what a roller coaster ride. And I thought this was the best of the movies of the series by far. Love loved it. I want to go see it again!

Elsha Bodily said...

You are correct, the girl in taken is really annoying, but she's not blonde? How did that happen? And I heard about the digital baby...weird?

Helene said...

ok now I want to see it sooo badly! everyone is saying its sooo good!

Amanda @ Eloquent English said...

OK, I didn't read your post b/c I haven't seen the movie yet and I felt like it might spoil it for me... I did read the books though. lol xoxo

Kayla Peveler said...

I am going with a bunch of co-workers next Tuesday to see it! CAN'T EVEN WAIT!! :)

you and your couple sisters look so alike!! Adorable!

smk053078 said...

I think I just need to jump on the Edward train...I at least need to see the Twilight movies, right? I heard this last one was soooooo good!

Theresa said...

I'm one of those nuts that waits until ALL the movies are released, then I sit down and have a back to back movie marathon. I have to read the books first. My husband bought them for me 2 years ago, and sadly, I still haven't found the time to read them, so I haven't even started on the movies yet. I'll probably have to wait until this one comes out on dvd, then watch them all. I have heard very good things about this last movie though. I am really excited to see them!

Gentri said...

It was so so exciting and horrifying! I was sobbing... and that is NOT an exaggeration. I didn't think I would react like that... but i did, and it was confusing. haha! I don't think they could have ended it better. i loved it!

Annie said...

Haha - loved reading your recap - I can't wait to go see it!

Breaking Dawn was my favorite of the books and I loved the part 1 movie version. I haven't seen this one yet (I have plans to go soon!) but I'm so anxious to see how they did it. I can't wait to see for myself!!

Danavee said...

Can't wait to see it! You were brave to hit it up opening weekend!!!

Emily said...

Karen said...

We went to see it on the Thursday night lol. I thought it was good, I felt they could have elaborated on certain parts a little bit more, but in the end, I'm very happy with how the "Saga" ended. I'm also a little bit sad now, I don't have another series to read/watch the movies lol. Glad you guys had fun seeing it :)

Caroline said...

I've never been into Twilight, but can def understand how you feel... I was like this and more probably during the last Harry Potter film!

Pharr Away... said...

What did I tell you Ashley, AMAZING!!! I too, was overly dramatic during the movie...especially during certain "deaths".

I must say, I thought Edward was quite handsome in this one but I'll always be Team Jacob!!!

And really Rachel?!? She is one of my favorite actresses but she just lost some points for that one...ewww!!!

Head to Toe Chic said...

So you aren't going to like this...I've only ever seen about 5 minutes of a Twilight movie. All I know is that they sparkle in the sunlight. Everyone seems to love these movies though!!

xo,
Angela

I LOVED this one. It was by far my favorite, (then again, there was only one way to go after how terrible the first one was..) Seeing it at midnight was insane because every girl in the audience was gushing and screaming and gasping in all the right places. At the ending, one girl even got up and acted like she was going to leave because of how outraged she was. During the credits, some of us took the liberty of yelling "CHEATER!!!" when KStew's mug showed. I also hated how much I loved her hair throughout the whole movie.

Shaylynn, They Let Me Blog. said...

oh no.

Emily said...

I finally saw it last night and oh my GOODNESS! Everyone had been freaking out about this movie so much and I didn't understand how it could be that great, but I was shocked! I think theaters need to have candid cameras set up to get people's reactions to this movie because I know everyone in my theater was screeching, screaming, and gasping with their hands over their mouth (myself included to an extreme). So good!

Carrie said...

OMG, everyone is saying that this movie was extremely good! i cannot wait to see it. oh and that "twist" everyone's talking about. :O i cannot wait to see it!

haha...this post made me laugh! I LOVE Twilight! I haven't seen BD part 2 yet! I actually think Rob is a pretty good actor. KStew is the worst thing that happened to Twilight...glad she is tolerable in the movie..haha.

i read all the twilight book because my dearest and oldest friend begged to me to read them with her . . . i have to say my past as domestic violence shelter director kind of left me with a biased "ahhhhh!" feeling. needless to say i was on "team jacob" ; )

Mrs in Training said...

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm dying to! I'm glad to hear you loved it!

stephanie said...

fun fact: I'm a twilight virgin, I've never read the books or seen the movies.

Allyssa said...

I saw Breaking Dawn Part 2 on Sunday! I loved it!

I don't understand Rachel McAdam's decision either. Maybe he's super awesome? I guess we'll never know.
