Just got in from the 12:25 showing of Breaking Dawn.
Don't worry--no spoilers in this post. I'm only going to write about my experience seeing the movie.
I am SO pleased with the movie. I know I'll have to see it again to get my emotions under control to be able to really think clearly about it.
I can't believe I even hesitated going to a midnight showing. I'm glad I didn't wait.
The reasons I considered not going to a midnight showing were because I didn't want to wait out in the cold for hours in line to get a good seat (like I had to for New Moon and Eclipse), I didn't want to go by myself nor did I want to get just anyone to go with me that would not share my fan girl enthusiasm, and I didn't want to sit in a theater full of noisy and in any way obnoxious people.
All my hesitation was overridden by my inability to wait until the daytime or even the weekend to see it. I also had to go to it as soon as possible so I could talk about it with Lydia. HA! I also told myself that I would see it more than once so if I missed out on anything, I wouldn't the second, third, fourth, fifth......time I saw it. Double HA!
I made my final decision when I saw that there were multiple screenings at my Regal theater and did some reconnaissance. Two 12:01s were sold out. I figured all the loud people would be in there. I opted for the 12:25. Before I made my final decision, I drove by the theater at 7:30 to check out the line situation. There were people lined up, but I figured those people were in line for the 12:01 thinking that they needed to be there that early to get a good seat to the sold out showings. I also decided to take my 15-year old and 13-year old with me. Yeah, I'm a bad mother..... They promised me that they wouldn't fight me on going to school and they both went to bed at 9 to catch a couple of hours of sleep. I also asked my husband if he minded me going and he told me to go ahead!
We left at 11:15. When we got to the theater, they were already seating. No waiting outside! Yay!! Our showing was in a smaller theater, but it was fine. We got to sit right where we wanted.
We all loved the movie. I did find the music obtrusive at times. I felt the movie was the best adaptation. Any "extras" in the movie played well and weren't distracting to me. More soon.....
I can't wait to see it again!!
I can't believe everyone, but a couple of groups, of people left as the credits were starting. Idiots! You always stay through the credits of a movie series. Duh!
I know it's fabulous marketing and all, but WHY WHY do we have to wait an entire year for Part 2?! HP people....I feel your pain!
