I saw Breaking Dawn with my 14-year-old daughter and friends at the midnight movie premier on November 18, 2011. Well, technically we arrived at the theater on Thursday, November 17 for a 12:05 am showing. The theater we went to was very crowded and it was showing the movie on multiple screens at midnight. Some of my friends went to a midnight premiere at a different theater here in Little Rock and all of those showings were sold out too!
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1
Brief Description: The Quileutes close in on expecting parents Edward and Bella, whose unborn child poses a threat to the Wolf Pack and the towns people of Forks.
Leslie's Notes: After seeing all four movies in the "Twilight Saga", I thought this movie was definitely the best one so far. Although I've always thought that Robert Pattinson is a very good actor, his portrayal of Edward in this movie impressed me so much during the dramatic scenes. I can just stare at Taylor Lautner all day long and Kristen Stewart didn't annoy me as much in this film as she has in the other Twilight movies. I just made sure I didn't watch any of her TV interviews!
As someone who has read all four books written by Stephanie Meyer and has seen all four movies so far at midnight premieres, I liked this movie the best, with the exception of a graphic scene toward the end of the film. I won't give it away, but it was featured on an episode of Entertainment Tonight earlier this year. And I should mention that my daughter Lauren actually went to Forks, Washington this past summer while she and my mother were visiting relatives near Seattle, Washington. She brought back a t-shirt for me that says Team Jacob!
