The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 - May I interest you in the history of this particular saga and I? Too bad. Okay, so back when the first movie came out (I was 13, just starting high school), I went to go and see this movie because I had nothing else to do and I was pretty curious about it. I thought it was average. I told a few friends about it. They went and saw it. They (as well as I) read the books. They dragged me to the cinemas to see it twice. I still liked it. Then it came out on DVD. Me and one of my friends got quite excited when it turned up at work. The week that it came out I watched it five times. This was because I had a huge crush on Dr. Carlisle Cullen. Anyway, I started thinking that it was terrible. Every time I picked up a magazine, it would be plastered with Twilight stuff. After that week, I was over the movie. And every thing else that came along with it.
I watched New Moon. It was my least favourite book, and my least favourite movie (thus far). I watched Eclipse. It wasn't terrible (and that was my favourite book), but it definitely wasn't good. And now comes along Breaking Dawn. In two parts, too! I'm actually pretty excited to see this movie (I'm not paying to see it, though), because a) I'd love to see how the sex scene turns out (in a non-Michael Fassbender in Shame kinda way), and b) I'd love to see this vampire pregnancy. How do humans get pregnant to vampires?!
I guess you could say, that if someone asked me to choose between Twilight and Harry Potter, I'd pick Harry Potter. And I haven't even seen, nor read, any of the Harry Potter's. But I can promise you that anything is better than Robert Pattinson looking pasty and sparkling and Kristen Stewart walking around all mopey.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II - So, it's all ended. And I feel like I've missed out on the biggest party of my generation. If there's anyone to blame, it's the local newspaper (who I could probably blame for a lot of other things, but let's not go there). Back in 2001, my mother and I went to the cinemas in town (back when they were still open and didn't show movies that were already on DVD) to go and see the first Harry Potter. But no, the newspaper stuffed up the schedule and in fact, Lord of the Rings was playing. So we went and saw that instead. Now, I've watched all of the Lord of the Rings (I actually did that last year, as I would have been too young to understand them while they were playing in cinemas), but none of the Harry Potter's. This shall be rectified next month, as I promised like, everyone that I'd watch them all once the last one came out on DVD. And I always keep my promises.
Super 8 - This shall be reviewed tomorrow (because it was so awesome), providing that I don't kill myself while revising for my science exam on Monday. It's been a while since I've done a review. And to think that this whole site used to be based around reviews as I reviewed everything I watched. I wonder if you lovely people like the new direction I'm taking? Or shall I revert back to grammatically incorrect one paragraph reviews of every movie I see, just like this one?
To think that reviews like these used to get published in the local newspaper.
So, what do you think of these movies? Are you a Twilight fan? Or a Harry Potter fan? Or a Spielberg/Abrams fan? Discuss.
