The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Saturday, November 26, 2011

I don't know how to react on this movie simply because I haven't read the book so when I get to watch the movie, I don't know what to expect. All I know is that Bella (Kirsten Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) will get married and eventually, Bella will have a baby. 

When I get to watched it, soon after the opening credits, Jacob Black's abdominals made a disturbing appearance. Of course, there are a lot of people who are looking forward to this scene, any scene that shares Jacob not wearing anything at all. Fortunately, I'm not one of them. :) He was mad upon receiving the wedding invitation of Bella and Edward. Alice, even from the start has always been there to support and help Bella, this time around, she helps Bella in the preparation of the wedding. 

Then came the wedding, nothing much happened, some drama involving some of the Cullen's relatives irritated because they invited the wolves pack into the wedding. Soon enough, scenes shifted to Brazil where Bella and Edward will have there Earth Shattering honeymoon. Well, not really, it's just that they made a complete havoc on their bedroom. Kudos to the cinematography simply because Brazil is really an amazing place. I love the sceneries, the beach scene, the falls, the forest. I'm quite disturbed with the Bella and Edward playing chess all the time. Do honeymooners do this all the time? :) I'm not sure though :) 

Soon enough, Bella started having signs of pregnancy, of course, I think, Edward is just plain stupid not to realize that this is inevitable. But on the contrary, is it possible that cold blooded creatures like Edward can make a human pregnant? He's a vampire after all. Since I haven't read the book, I don't know the answer. They packed their bags and went home straight, Bella not telling her parents so that they will not worry about her. They are clueless that Bella is pregnant with a monster that is literally sucking all her blood. It was quite funny when Alice often calls the baby "fetus" and Edward calling the baby "IT". This is the time when Edward and Jacob started to argue. Jacob told Edward that is Bella didn't survive the pregnancy, he will kill him. 

After much agreement, Jacob agrees to protect Bella from his werewolf pack because these they are out to kill her. For some reason, the werewolves are afraid of her baby monster. 

Let's fast forward to the main event since some of the scenes are really, not that important. After giving birth to an infant which is Renesme, Bella dies but not after her husband stab her with an enormous needle filled with his venom. He also bit him several times to make sure she regains her life. Bella wakes up.Looking very much like Dakota Fanning or a Volturi then the end.

Although I didn't like the movie that much, there are some points that I like. 

1) the wedding gown, because it has gorgeous details,
2) the Brazilian island resort house, because it has gorgeous architectural details, and
3) the wedding nightmare of Bella, because it looks like a grotesque wedding cake with gruesome details.

With the acting parts, Lautner continues to squint whenever he is making a point or delivering lines in the middle of an important scene. Stewart still tucks her hair, bites her nails, or avoids eye-to-eye contacts and has mastered the constipated look in each frame (or is Bella Swan really like that in the book? I'm not sure). Pattinson is terrible. He is not to blame because it is hard to act when covered in eerie white make-up and tons of hair products. Creepy indeed.

Lastly, the controversial love scene. According to some reports, the filmmakers had to tone it down because it got an R-13 rating. Better if the scenes remained in the final cut to add more entertainment. Broken beds. Injured bodies. Lesson: monsters and humans are not compatible. The insane thing though, Bella does not mind the aftermath. Oh no. She likes it. She does not mind doing it more and more despite resistance from her husband. Author Stephanie Meyer, who also served as producer, is sending a curious message to the audience. Oh well. 

For die hard Twilight fans out there, *PEACE* :) I', still looking forward to the second part :)
