Personal approach to Breaking Dawn Part 2 and Twilight in general.
-I came across Twilight across 2009, my first time traveling to USA. And also the first movie I ever saw in an american cinema was Twilight because my cousin and her cousin wanted to watch it. I tagged along because I had nothing else to do and because I didn't know what I was going into. Result? Hollow movie, didn't make me a fan and didn't understand why I felt empty inside after it. I really want to say it was shit, but it's still the first movie I ever saw in american ground... let that sink for a second while a part of your soul dies.
-I started hating Twilight and then mocking it after all the over-hype of the female demographic. Hating it was also becoming mainstream, so I decided to be indeferent to the whole movement, ans subsequently I didn't watch any of the following.
-That is until last year when I finally said "It's finally over, I'm going to the movies to see Part 2". Now, don't think otherwise. My reasons were three big ones: I was boss' new title card artist and I became a fan because of his Twilight reviews, so I'd rather know what I'm painting. 2. I knew all the reviewers were going to maul this one, so I better watch it to understand better the vlogs. It really was that gloriously bad, cheesy and hollow as the first one. And 3. I didn't care about the movie. I was more into people's reaction to it. I really wanted to live the "Twilight theatre experience" and see for myself if the girls and moms really squeed in the theatres. I went to 2 screenings looking for that reaction. The first time was a matinee, so there wasn't a decent crowd for the theory (that one was with my mom. She thought it was the most hollow of the films ever), and the second time was with my best friend: We only drooled by the beefcake, mocked at everything and I was the only one laughing loud at one scene to the point I feared if the staff was going to throw me out XD. Well, yeah. I was dissapointed, none of my screenings had fangasms from the Twihards... but still I heard the dissapointment laughs at the cop out of the climax. Watching the people was fun, the movie not so much.
-Bella went from being a selfish bitch with no personality to a selfish bitch with violent tendencies. I was more interested in the Super-Vampires, who would have made BETTER and more interesting stories than the one I watched. I cracked when Bella went into the sun to sparkle (everyone in the audience was watching me like I was crazy). And I can resume my sliding reactions for each act: Act 1, I was hysterical with laughter, everything was SO stupid (and I was also creeped by the CGI baby... brgh...). Act 2 was the most boring part, I had no reaction whatsoever. Act 3 gave me a bit of hope. The final 10 minutes: The movie ended jumping the shark and turns out it was a faux-jumping... I couldn't care any less.
I can see why teenage girls like it, if the story was better thought and better written, it could have been a decent young adult adventure, the supporting characters are interesting enough, but the downside is that the main characters have the personalities of cardboard and they have motivations as strong as paper foundations.
