Too Much Twilight to Take?: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″

Breaking DawnAlright. Little breather. No joke, this is getting tough. Watching these crappy ass movies, blogging as fast as I can… feeling a little drained here, and I still have two movies left.

My worst fears about these movies have come true. They are neither good nor so bad they’re good (though they do contain relatively frequent, blessed, laughable moments). Bella Swan is a modern-day Helen of Troy, launching a war between vampires, and between werewolves and vampires. She causes two supernatural creatures to fight for her hand, and one sparkly, spineless vampire boy to question his sexual orientation.

WILL anything happen in this movie? WILL Edward man up and take Bella up on the half-dozen offers she’s given him? WILL Taylor Lautner win his war against the oppression of shirts once and for all?

Now that I’m blogging though, I do feel a little bad for not “Scouting this out” for people, but I also feel like I need to fill that gaping hole in my pop culture/movie knowledge. So the idea came to me a while back (some of you may have seen this already) to fill that knowledge gap AND have a shameless stunt for the sake of the blog, both at the same time.

All five “Twilight” movies – the entire saga – in one day.
