Today is January 1, 2012 and this is my attempt to catch up on my movie review blog! Since I posted my last blog in November, I’ve seen several new movies including: Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol; New Year’s Eve; My Week With Marilyn; and the new Twilight movie “Breaking Dawn – Part 1”.
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!
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!
