Breaking Dawn: Best Ever

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!

  1. thanks for your comments. I've felt kinda sad that there have been several bad reviews:

    Cheezeee, and gross? really?
    I'm an oldee/moldee (59yrs), so I rather wait and enjoy it in the theatre with few people. I doubt that I will have bad feelings about it.

    I even liked the first one...and, I know it wasn't the best. But, I did like it anyway.
